    The Stantons:  Book 1 and 2

    Two tales of siblings and their misadventures in love.   Spanning England, from the Cotswold countryside to the city of London, join Jake Stanton and his younger sister Daisy as they negotiate the pitfalls and pleasures of courtship, romance, relationships and love.



    Some things are just not suited to the countryside.   Take Jake Stanton, for example ...

    Forced on a holiday for his health, Jake finds himself stuck in the middle of middle England.  Nature is all well and good as long as it's nowhere near him! And if that's not punishment enough, there's always the seriously tempting and possibly slightly deranged Serenity Ryan.   Why is she camped out in his cottage?   What's with all the pumpkins?   And why does her crazy cat have it in for him?

    Swiftly concluding that small town life in a small town burgh is not something for him, citified Jake must fight his growing attraction to that country woman. It hardly helps that he's killing time by pretending to be Serenity's lover; their mission to fool her scheming relatives and trick the gossiping village grapevine.

    Can Jake do all that, squeeze in a few rounds of golf and still manage to find his serenity?



    Daisy's a born romantic and there's nothing more romantic than a wedding ... well, right up until the champagne toasts and cake cutting anyway.   Now she's seriously debating "death by cake fork"!

    Sean's a born mechanic and there's nothing sexier than a classic car ... well, right up until he saw a certain bridesmaid, that was.   Now he's seriously fantasizing about what's under her hood!

    Crossing paths during the "Wedding Reception from Hell", the only way these city slickers will make it out of the Cotswold countryside and matchmaking misery, is together.   But can this grubby knight in tarnished armor ever convince Daisy to trust her own heart?   Can Sean show her that their own story is a romance worth writing?

    If love's last pages always end in happy ever after, will theirs?
