SHELTERING LAWSON IS RELEASED!!

OUT NOW!


























The last Resisting the Fall novel in my on-going Hope Parish world. Ethan knows there's something wrong with pretty new waitress Lawson Edwards, but gaining her trust enough for her to spill the details was an excuse for getting close to this beauty. She was running on empty, her car, her body, her motivation. Ethan wasn't going to give up without a fight, but he'd have to be careful not to spook her. If she disappeared...there would be no way to help her...or to hold her forever.

COVER REVEAL SQUEE!: SHELTERING LAWSON!

SHELTERING LAWSON, a contemporary romance by ZOE, releasing January 23, 2017 and is the third book in the Resisting the Fall series, part of my Hope Parish Novels.


Ethan had no idea why Lawson Edwards was so guarded or why she looked like she was running. But he knew about running away from something: like a preacher father who didn't want to take no for an answer. Ever since he'd gotten out of the Marines, he'd drifted. But when Lawson comes into town for a temporary stay, he knows she's in trouble. His warrior instincts kick in and all he wants to do is shelter her. But this damsel in distress has to stop putting up walls and running long enough to see that Ethan and Suttontowne are her haven...and maybe something permanent if she could be brave enough to stand and fight.

Or will he buckle under once again and break both their hearts?

A NEW LOOK!!

Some changes in the wind with my series for Random House. They are now in my hands and I've got some new covers and further news about the two series you're coming to love.



Maybe Tomorrow is in the revision stage and is slated for release in December. Here's the blurb:

Zoe Dawson returns to Laurel Falls, Montana, where big sky meets true love in Maybe Tomorrow, as a jaded New Yorker and a small-town mayor teach each other that the good things in life are meant to be savored.

After growing up dirt poor, Greg Chambers relishes his job as the CEO of a high-powered marketing agency. He couldn’t imagine leaving New York for Laurel Falls, a town so rundown he can practically see the tumbleweeds. But while there to spearhead a new tourism campaign, Greg admits that there’s one bright spot: the widowed mayor whose fighting spirit and exquisite good looks have him struggling to keep things professional.

Trinity Gill is doing everything in her power to revitalize her dazzling but declining town—even while mourning her husband and trying to keep her family together. The last thing she needs is a distraction like Greg, a fast-talking city slicker who works hard and plays harder. So why does her body long for his touch? And why can’t she get his open smile and gleaming eyes off her mind?

Greg has been running on empty for years, but when he finally takes the time to smell the roses, he makes a startling realization: He can be the one to heal Trinity’s wounded heart. And if Trinity would face her deepest fears, maybe tomorrow could be the start of a whole new beginning—together.


A slight variation on the original, but Falcon is still sizzling hot. This book is also in the revision stage and is slated for release in 2017. Here's the blurb:

The athletes agented by Mavrick Allstars aren’t the only things heating up the sports agency. Zoe Dawson’s series continues with more gripping, heartfelt romance as the smart, talented, and sassy female agents continue to pursue their passion for both their profession and their clients.

It’s no secret Trista Jordan has coveted signing Falcon Dane. As one of the newer agents, she has something to prove at the internationally renowned agency. But she knows that taking on Falcon will either make her or break her. She’s determined to get the contract and snag all that explosive and muscled raw talent to rep him to the extreme. Her challenges: keep her hands off his gorgeous body and discover the core of his anger—because the mighty has fallen.

Professional surfer Falcon Dane, once at the top of his sport, struggles with an injury he sustained in a terrible car crash that fractured his pelvis, an accident that left his mother paralyzed. With Trista at the helm, she could help him spark a comeback that will leave both his competitors and sponsors breathless. But the key to success is in his tragic past and the accident that changed his world. Only he can restore the balance he so desperately needs to excel.

But when Trista becomes much more than his agent and he has to delve deep inside to find the real source of his anger, can he risk everything on her?
