Welcome to the West Coast, where love is state-of-the-heart. Debra Salonen’s West Coast Happily-Ever-After Series Books 4-7 includes four heartwarming romance stories that come with all the trimmings: kids, horses, dogs, cats, and, of course, a potbelly pig. A Baby After All (Book 4) – When divorce is the answer, maybe two people in love need a new question. Casey and Nathan Kent fell in love, got married, and promptly got so caught up in the business of life they lost track of each other. Are they husband and wife…or strangers living in the same house? Their love is still there, but can they find it beneath the barrage of turkeys, a barracuda in stilettos, fairy shrimp and endangered salamanders? “…a deeply emotional, involving story about love and family values brightened by lively, witty and realistic characters striving to achieve a better understanding of themselves and reaching a new level of happiness.” ~ Amazon review Love, After All (Book 5) - A match made in heaven? In what universe? After lawyer Gwyneth "The Barracuda" Jacobi’s very public loss in San Francisco, she’s handed the ignoble job of helping a wealthy do-gooder with a Don Quixote complex save an old lady and her pig. People call Arley McNamara a trust-fund misfit who tilts at windmills. Can a man who has never lacked for anything—but love—convince a by-the-book lawyer to bend a few rules for the greater good? Love, after all, demands the kind of truth only an honest heart can answer. “…packed full of humor, real life, and romance. And, Cuddles the pig, of course.” ~ Goodreads review That Cowboy’s Forever Family (Book 6) – Can a woman who’s given up on love help a single dad reconnect with the daughters he thought he’d lost forever? Ranch foreman Tom Butler loved his ex-wife enough to let her go when ambition lured her to L.A., but he never stopped loving their two daughters. Tom may not be the dad his daughters know, but he’ll do anything for his family—even ask for help from a beautiful stranger. Victims advocate Abby Davis can’t turn her back on two brokenhearted children and their beleaguered father, but can she do her job without losing her heart in the process? “This story sucked me in emotionally from the beginning, but that’s no surprise as Debra Salonen is an expert when it comes to dealing with emotions.” ~ online reviewer Forever and Ever, By George (Book 7) – Even the dog knows the importance of happily-ever-after. Sometimes, a dog’s gotta do what a dog’s gotta do. Paws Spa owner Kara Williams loves her animal clients--especially Brad Ralston’s Great Dane, George. But recently divorced men—no matter how attractive—are Kara’s kryptonite, and the single mother of twins keeps her distance…until a storm takes the roof off her coastal Oregon home. Restaurant owner and chef Brad desperately needs a live-in housekeeper. If she comes with two little girls and a bunny, so be it. Twice burned, Brad’s heart isn’t part of any business agreement…unless a matchmaking Great Dane has his way. “This wonderful book is touching and humorous and engages you from the word go.” ~ Goodreads review The West Coast Happily-Ever-After Series, Books 4-7, introduces readers to four unique romance novels filled with the kind of family drama and heartwarming characters Debra Salonen--winner of Romantic Times Reviewer's Career Achievement "Series Storyteller of the Year" award in 2006--is known for. “Debra Salonen captures reader attention with multifaceted characters, layered conflict and fast pacing.” ~ Pamela Cohen, Romantic Times Buy the West Coast Happily-Ever-After series, Boxed Set #2, to immerse yourself in today’s west, where love never backs down from the challenges life throws its way and every happily-ever-after is satisfyingly well-deserved.
