☘️ Storybook Pub 2 is out!
Have you been charmed? Storybook Pub 2 is a mixed sub-genre contemporary romance anthology featuring the proprietor of pubs around the world, Kole O'Shea!
My story is just one of many, and I'm looking forward to sharing "A Stitch in Time," full of romantic suspense and a hint of magic. Follow Chloe as she runs from her past and finds solace at the pub trhough Kole's unerring generosity. There she meets Kevan, a man at a turning point in his own life. Sparks fly and hearts beat fast, but Chloe's past isn't ready to give her up so easily. Find out what happens at the Storybook Pub...
