Welcome to Crane’s Cove!

Crane’s Cove is an idyllic coastal town, set between the Atlantic Ocean and the Acadian Woods. More than half the land has been in the Crane family for generations. Visitors are just as welcome as the many lifelong residents, many of whom are Cranes or are descendants of the Wabenakis, the Native American tribe who first lived on this land. Other longtime families came to the area a century ago to work in the whaling, fishing, and shipping industries.

There’s always a friendly face waiting to serve customers at quaint eateries, like Dockside Ice Cream, an ice cream parlor shaped like a giant milk bottle, or The Lobster Trap. And the Cliffside Diner is probably the only place where a former FBI agent pours the coffee and slices the pie. A tiny white clapboard church with stained glass and polished pews is the beating heart of the town.

Craggy cliffs descending to beautiful beaches, horseback-riding trails through white birch and pine forests, and secluded wildflower meadows offer gorgeous views that could only be painted by God. Guests can experience horseback rides, ocean kayaking, and midday picnics at the Cliff Walk Resort, which offers luxury suites as well as rustic cabins. Townsfolk mingle with resort guests at beach potlucks and movie-themed nights, complete with karaoke performances by the town’s “golden girls.” Crane’s Light, a floating lighthouse, now converted into an exclusive guest suite, provides the finishing touch to an already perfect town.


His colonel hired him to protect her, not to fall in love. But their fake honeymoon at a seaside resort might just save their hearts as well as her life.

When her life is upended by a vicious stalker, Lanie Owens retreats to a seaside resort where she can heal in peace while the authorities hunt down her stalker. The last thing she wants is to get bossed around by the handsome bodyguard who’s been hired to protect her.

Army Ranger Matt Saunders has almost recovered from the injuries he sustained during the hellish event that almost took his life. Anxious to prove he’s fit for duty, he accepts the position to protect his former colonel’s granddaughter. Their faith, values, and struggles with PTSD draw them together, but is it enough to rearrange their lives?

When Lanie’s location is exposed, Matt will do everything it takes to protect her—and find a way for them to be together.


Their love surged and crashed like waves in a storm. They’ll need to seek shelter in each other to rescue their happily-ever-after.

Kat Daniels has returned to Crane’s Cove with one goal: to put the pieces of her life back together. One of those pieces—the most important one—is Easton Crane. Breaking off their engagement after he stuck by her, supported her, and loved her through the years of her agonizing recovery from a traumatic accident was the biggest mistake she’s ever made. It’s going to take everything she has to earn his trust again and prove that she’s here to stay.

Easton Crane was shattered when Kat left town—and him. Her desertion taught him a valuable lesson he’ll never forget—and he won’t make the same mistake twice. Running the stables and renovating the lighthouse in the cove into a luxury accommodation for his family’s resort have to remain his top priority. She’s the only woman he’ll ever love, but he’d rather be alone than give her the reins to his heart again.

When his parents rehire Kat to work in the stables, Easton goes out of his way to avoid her. She’s got every right to work and board her horse there—but he doesn’t have to like it. When a hurricane nearly destroys the barn, Kat’s horse is gravely injured. Only Easton has the skills and training to help Mocha, and he’ll need Kat’s help to save her.
And just maybe, in the process, they’ll save each other.


She had big-city dreams with big-city goals. No one was more surprised than she was when she found her place—and her heart—in her small seaside hometown.

Returning to Crane’s Cove for the summer to regroup and reset, Shelby Porter has no time for nonsense. She needs to reassess her career goals and find a way to fund them. There’s no room in her life for the too-kind, too-handsome-for-his-own-good, and too-sweet-for-his-tea Georgia transplant who’s become besotted with her.

In all the years Detective Damon Saunders lived in Atlanta, the city never seemed like home. During a brief trip to Crane’s Cove for a family wedding, he finally understood why. He may hide a haunting past behind his dimpled perma-smile, but the night he met Shelby, he knew what home was supposed to feel like.

When Shelby makes it clear that she’s leaving at the end of August, Damon is determined to convince her to stay. She’s torn between family obligations and her desire to make a difference in the world.

If he can open her eyes to how much good she can do by staying here, maybe she’ll also see what he sees—that their feelings for each other are the forever kind.


Love was the ultimate risk in a game she didn’t want to play.

After a yearlong mission trip, pilot JC Crane returns home to Maine for the summer to take on more responsibility at his family’s Cliff Walk Resort.

When Caroline books the most important weekend of her career at his family’s resort, finding ways to make her smile and rekindle her spark becomes JC’s number-one goal. They might be drawn to each other, but neither can figure out how an ambitious businesswoman and a traveling missionary can make a long-distance relationship work.

Their tenuous bond is put to the test when a disaster-relief mission throws JC into danger and forces Caroline to follow her heart. Can she rescue him and their love before it’s too late?
