If anyone can save him, she’s the one

Jerrod Walters hopes relocating to the coastal town of Two Moon Bay can be the fresh start he and his young daughter need. But the single dad is caught off guard when a beautiful PR professional offers to promote his diving excursions to legendary shipwreck sites. There’s so much he admires about Dawn Larson, starting with the woman’s upbeat, can-do personality. Dawn’s boundless capacity for joy might be the only thing capable of bringing him back to life after his tragic loss…



[From the moment she saw Jerrod’s little girl, Dawn was smitten. But at times, the lively 
five-year-old reminds Dawn of painful unfulfilled desires. In this scene Dawn and Lark 
have been at the Bean Grinder discussing volunteer PR for a local fundraiser.]
Dawn filled in details about the annual Art for Life event she helped publicize. “It’s quite 
a gala.” She cocked her head. “We even dress up.”
“Sounds like a worthy cause, too.” Jerrod said.
“We’ll be happy to sell you a ticket—and for your staff, too,” Lark said. “You might enjoy 
meeting some new people. Supporters come from several towns around here.”
“Real subtle,” Dawn said, rolling her eyes at her friend.
“I’m just saying…networking and all that.”
“I’d like to come to the dinner,” Jerrod said eagerly.
Carrie reached out and tugged on Dawn’s hand. “You know what Melody said? She said I 
might get a new mommy one day.”
“Hmm…did she now?” Dawn fidgeted with her necklace at her throat.
“So, we should go, little girl,” Jerrod put his hand on Carrie’s back as if to encourage her along.
“Could you be my new mommy?”
Dawn drew in a breath, her cheeks heating up, probably turning bright pink.
Jerrod laughed nervously. “Hey, little one. You can’t just go around asking people questions like 
Not trusting herself to look at Jerrod, Dawn leaned forward and cupped Carrie’s chin. “Becoming 
somebody’s mom can be more complicated than it seems. But anybody would be really lucky to 
have you as her daughter.”
Carrie didn’t say anything, but she tapped her chin where Dawn’s fingers had been.
“We’ll be on our way,” Dawn said, finally laughing.
“Let’s go to a table, honey. You said you were hungry,” Jerrod said, shaking his head.
“Yes…I…am.” Carrie emphasized each word with a hop.
Keeping her gaze on Carrie, Dawn said, “You have fun.”
“We will.” Another hop.
Lark waited to burst out laughing until they got to their cars and well out of Jerrod’s earshot. 
“What were we just saying about you and Jerrod?”
“I’m officially embarrassed.” She smiled sadly. “But you can see for yourself she’s a precious 
little imp.”

The daughter they never knew

When Miles Jenkins sees the graceful young figure skater on TV, he can't believe how much she resembles Lark McGee, the girl he dated briefly in college. Could this aspiring star be the child Lark gave up for adoption eighteen years ago? He has to find out.

Locating Lark ignites conflicting emotions in Miles—including regrets for what might have been and romantic feelings that take the two single parents by surprise. As they prepare to meet their daughter, this deeper connection between the two just might be the chance at love they never got.

About the Author

Her award-winning romance and women’s fiction titles include The Jacks of Her Heart, Amber Light, Greta’s Grace, The Chapels on the Hill, and Island Healing.

Born and raised in Chicago, Virginia has been lucky enough to develop her writing career in many locations, including the coast of Maine, the mountains of North Carolina, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and currently, Northeast Wisconsin.

Virginia’s books feature characters who could be your neighbors and friends. They come in all ages and struggle with everyday life issues in small-town environments that almost always include water—oceans, lakes, or rivers. The mother of two grown children, you’ll find Virginia with her nose a book, walking on trails or her neighborhood street, or she may be packing her bag to take off for her next adventure. And she’s always working on another story about hope, healing, and second chances.
