Matters of the Heartthrob


In matters of the heart, love always wins.

Coming Fall 2022!

Leora McBride is a one-man kind of woman.
But with her soulmate ripped away years ago in a tragic accident she still carries the scars from, she’s content to live out the rest of her life alone.
She’s got grandkids to dote on, an amazingly smart daughter to support, and wonderful friends who keep her active—she has no need of a man this late in life.
Except those wonderful friends trick her into a blind date with a man who makes her heartthrob like she’s a teenager.
Maybe living out her golden years by herself isn’t what she wants after all.
Dr. Clay Washburn is happiest alone.
But when Mayor Patty calls in a long-forgotten favor, he caves and goes on the most surprising—and delightful—blind date he’s ever experienced.
Too bad it’s with one of his patients. And it violates every code he operates by. For the first time in his life, he imagines what could have been if only…
As the months pass, and his feelings for Leora deepen along with his concern for her health, he can’t keep his distance any longer. Even if it means risking it all.
Matters of the Heartthrob is a sweet, standalone romance in the Midnight Bluff series with a dash of laughs and a heaping helping of small-town Southern sass.
