Can you save the world and fall in love at the same time?
Coming October 2016! Lily Lang works as an emergency doctor in devastated parts of the world. As good as she is at healing people who desperately need her help, she can’t seem to mend her own broken heart.

Ever Have to Choose Between Work and Love?
After a solid career as an economist working at the US Embassy in London, forty-two-year-old American Ivy Cross is ready to spice up her looming middle age with a new job and maybe a new love.
Madrid-based tech superstar Ruben Alegre both infuriates and intoxicates her, and if he only lived closer she'd consider risking her heart.
When the opportunity for an incredible new job in Berlin arrives in the form of sexy Christof Brandt, she wonders if the offer is too good to be true. Her Late Bloomer friends are split down the middle, offering support but no clear decision.
Will she find a future with Ruben? Start a new life in hip and gritty Berlin?
There are no easy answers, but Ivy can't deny that her life is about to change in a very big way.
Wild Rose (The Late Bloomers Series #1)
How Does a Mom Learn to Put Herself First Again?
Rose Quinn is having a very bad summer. First her 19-year-old daughter left home to backpack across Europe instead of going to college. Then a woman she loved like a mother died of a heart attack, making her feel like an orphan all over again. And in just a few weeks her best friend will be moving to New York City.
For a single mother who’s always had someone else to take care of, Rose is finally wondering how to take care of herself.
Handsome Mateo Romero is a transplanted Spaniard running a restaurant on Lake Como in Italy. A broken heart got him there, but he’s made a success of it just like he did his architecture business back in Madrid. One thing he hasn’t been successful with is love.
When Mateo hires Rose’s daughter for a summer job and gives her a free place to stay, Rose immediately suspects the worst. She won’t let her daughter make the same mistake she did at that age, so Rose flies to Italy to confront Mateo. What Rose finds instead is a secret she didn’t suspect and a challenge to everything she’s ever thought about love and the illusion of control.
Rose’s daughter doesn’t need saving, but can Rose save herself?

If I were a cheeky romance writer I’d say it looked like Barney the dinosaur […]
