UNSUNG LOVE SONG is here!

It’s here, you guys! My newest novel, UNSUNG LOVE SONG, is available on Amazon right now!

I’m so proud of this story. Of all my books, it reminds me most of HEART OF GLASS, my first novel. I love writing stories where the heroines follow clues together that lead them to something they desperately want, and it turns into an emotional journey that’s even more significant than the mystery. I really hope you enjoy reading it, that you love Celia and Gem as much as I do, and that the story transports you to all the beautiful locations I imagined while writing it.
 
Here’s the summary:
 
Celia Orne has a dream, and she’s finally been given the opportunity to chase it.
 
A botanist by day, poet by night, Celia uproots herself and moves to Florida in order to search for a legendary plant she’s always hoped was real. With recent heartbreak and long-past tragedy dogging her steps, she hopes that this new life of adventure will give her a chance to find some closure.
 
She never planned on fate throwing Gem Raglan in her way.
 
Gem is alluring, carefree, and a shameless flirt. She also knows the beaches and islands of Florida like the back of her hand, and she’s more than happy to help Celia explore. What’s so bad about having a little fun with her, as long as it doesn’t distract Celia from her quest? But before Celia has a chance to step on the brakes, her feelings for Gem grow into something more than just “a little fun.” If Gem’s smoldering glances are any indication, she feels exactly the same way.
 
But soon, getting distracted from her search isn’t Celia’s only problem. The closer they get to finding the legendary plant, the clearer it becomes that Gem is hiding something. And Celia, torn between the woman who sets her heart free and the dream she’s chased all her life, must make a decision.
 
Will making one dream come true mean giving up on the other?

Unsung Love Song — Release Day is Tuesday!

Hi everyone! I am SUPER excited to announce that my next novel, Unsung Love Song, will be released this Tuesday, June 13!

It’s about Celia, a botanist and poet who moves to Florida to search for a legendary plant. There she meets Gem, a woman who is all contradictions. Here’s a teaser. They’re talking about mycologists, who study mushrooms 🙂

“What’s that?” Gem asked. Her bright eyes were full of genuine interest when they met Celia’s, and their color reminded her of sundried dune grass.

“Someone who studies mushrooms.” Again, Celia’s concentration slipped away and she was only half aware of what she was saying. Gem’s closeness to her made her feel strung tight in the most strangely pleasant way, like she was a harp string that would let out a heavenly note of music if plucked. As for Gem, even though her entire attention was on Celia’s words, the look in her eyes matched Celia’s feeling that their conversation was merely a cover for what they were exchanging in their gazes.

“Mushrooms, huh?” Gem said dreamily. “Seems a shame when there are so much more beautiful things to study.” The connection between them sparked and broke for a moment when Gem lowered her eyes, but Celia felt it flare up again when Gem’s gaze caressed her down to her bare toes. Celia’s breath hitched and her cheeks burned with heat. Finally, the thought came through: I can’t believe this is happening.

But it was happening. She couldn’t have imagined a more magical first day in Florida if she’d written it into a poem herself.

“Some mushrooms are very beautiful,” Celia murmured. Her eyes never left Gem’s. “If you stop to look closely at them.”

Gem didn’t reply, but the smile on her lips was confident and the look in her eyes was knowing. She combed her fingers through her hair, pushing it back from her face in a way that made Celia certain she’d gotten it out of the way for a reason. Celia’s heart jumped and cartwheeled; from the way Gem’s eyes lingered on her mouth and the way her chin lifted as she angled closer, it was clear what Gem was about to do.

I really love this book, and I can’t wait to share it with you! Take a gander at this gorgeous cover that my editor, Bridget Essex of Rose and Star Press, made ❤

Today’s the Day – PRAIRIE HEART!

Today, February 21st, is the official release day for my newest novel, PRAIRIE HEART! It should be available on Amazon (and Kindle Unlimited!) soon, and I’ll post again when it is. I’m so, so excited to share it with you. I’m really proud of this story. Here’s the summary:

Eleanor Higgins has an incredible talent for matchmaking—for everyone but herself. Many of the couples in the tiny Colorado ranch town of Prairie Winds have Eleanor to thank for their happily ever after. But when her best friend, Morgan, asks for Eleanor’s help to set her up on a date…

Well, that’s where it gets complicated.

Morgan is funny and dashing, and she’s sexier in blue jeans and a cowboy hat than any ranch hand has a right to be. She also just came out. The thing is? Eleanor’s had a crush on Morgan since forever, and has spent her entire life convincing herself that Morgan was off limits. Now that Morgan’s told her she’s not exactly straight—and that Morgan needs her help to find the right lady—Eleanor’s heartbroken that this “right lady” is probably not her. Ever the great friend, she knows her own ex-girlfriend is absolutely perfect for Morgan…

A sexy camping trip, a tornado and an intense love triangle round out this heartwarming romance by best-selling author Marian Snowe!

Feast your eyes on this cover, you guys. My publisher at Rose and Star Press, Bridget Essex, is a genius designer and has captured Morgan perfectly. I’m dying with love ❤

A young woman is standing at the end of a pier by the ocean

Have you ever fallen for the wrong person?

Maggie Zurek is a high-powered executive who just pulled off the crowning achievement of her business career. Her future looks bright, but when a sleep-deprived car accident causes her family to send her on a forced vacation, Maggie is furious. It’s the worst possible time to waste two weeks at an island on the Maine coast. But she’s even more furious when she discovers that her sister signed her up for a self-help painting class with a teacher who is Maggie’s polar opposite.

Delphine Moss is free-spirited and reckless, a woman who shamelessly flaunts convention. She delights in challenging Maggie’s perfectionism and rigid views, and in spite of herself, Maggie is entranced by Delphine’s siren song. She’s never fallen for a woman before, so Maggie is utterly unprepared for the storm of emotions that Delphine excites in her. And there’s nothing Maggie hates more than feeling unprepared.

A passionate encounter leaves Maggie shaken to her very foundations, and she leaves the island, vowing never to set eyes on Delphine again. But in the course of a year, fate—a force Maggie never believed in—conspires to turn both of their lives upside down, and their unlikely reunion sends Maggie’s inhibitions up in smoke.

As the two women join forces to save Delphine’s island, Maggie struggles to come to terms with her feelings. Can two people who are so fundamentally different ever be happy together? And if Maggie allows herself to truly fall for Delphine, will Delphine ever see her as more than a conquest?

 

New Release Soon – SOMEONE LIKE YOU

Sorry it’s been so long since I posted here! I’m more active over at my Facebook, but I’ve been keeping a bit of a low profile since the election in order to preserve my sanity.

But I have exciting news! I hope to release my next novel, SOMEONE LIKE YOU, next Tuesday (December 20th). I really, really love this one–it’s an “opposites attract” or “enemies to lovers” story, and I haven’t published a novel of that sort before. I adore the characters and I get giddy every time I read the scenes where they’re together. I think you’re going to love it!

My wonderful editor, Bridget Essex of Rose and Star Press, made me the novel’s cover. It’s BEAUTIFUL and perfectly captures the atmosphere of the story.

Below is my in-progress description. I can’t wait to share this novel with you all!
