Hope Harbor police chief Lexie Graham has plenty on her plate raising her son alone and dealing with a sudden rash of petty theft and vandalism in her coastal Oregon hometown. As a result, she has zero time for extracurricular activities—including romance. Ex-con Adam Stone isn't looking for love either—but how ironic is it that the first woman to catch his eye is a police chief? Yet wishing for things that can never be is foolish. Nevertheless, when Lexie enlists Adam's help to keep a young man from falling into a life of crime, sparks begin to fly. And as they work together, it soon becomes apparent that God may have a different—and better—future planned for them than either could imagine.

Favorite season?
Spring. It seems so full of hope.

What's your favorite chore? 
A chore, by definition, is something you’d rather not do. So I have no favorites!

What’s one thing you must have/do in the morning? 
A cup of hot chocolate and a piece of my homemade bacon/cheese cornbread.

Dorothy got sucked into a tornado.

Alice fell down a hole.

Wendy flew to Neverland.

Kamryn? She tripped down the stairs.

Now, Kamryn Kensington finds herself in a strange new world. Within minutes of her arrival, she dodges an archer’s arrow and avoids getting sliced up by a cosplay reject holding a dagger to her throat. And that’s before the storyteller’s breath brings stories to life.

Home is the mission—to return to her family and pursue her life’s dream of art and travel. Yet the longer she’s in the Land of Ur, the harder it is not to feel for the people she meets. Even her artistic side can’t help but breathe in the beautiful wonder and magic of this new world. So when the Oracle hands her a different quest, she takes it on the condition he sends her home afterward.

No one thought to warn her of a jealous queen and her dragon minions. Or that, by helping her, the cute storyteller would go crazy. Or that her heart would rip in two when she left. Those would’ve been great facts to know ahead of time.

Considering that nothing in Ur is what it seems, the mission proves to be more than she ever imagined. But more than her own future will be in jeopardy if Kamryn doesn’t succeed.

Favorite season? 
Spring! Hands down. I love how the world awakens and brightens after the dreary gray of winter. Everything becomes so vibrant and green, not to mention all the beautiful blooms. *sigh*

If you were a superhero, what would be your super power? 
Hmm. With so many cool powers out there, it’s hard to choose. But for me, I’d love the power of speed. Not only could I run super fast and visit amazing locations, I would be able to tackle and dominate my mountain of a to-do list in record time. Which would, of course, leave more time for reading, eating chocolate, and creating memories.

If you were stranded on an island what are three things you couldn’t live without? 
Necessary items aside (like food, shelter, weapons, etc), I don’t think I could live without lip balm. I can handle having leathery sunbaked skin, but not crunchy lips. Next, I would have to have a hair tie. My curly hair has a mind of its own and requires something to wrangle it in. If hair products aren’t available, a nice strong hair tie would be enough to force it into submission. Lastly, books. Must have them to fully enjoy my tropical environment.
