Sometimes you fall in love with the setting of a story and can’t let it go. That’s what happened with a series of stories set in the fictional town of Havenport, Rhode Island.

The town was developed for an anthology of stories I was collaborating on with three other writing—Ruth A. Casie, Lita Harris, and Nicole S. Patrick. We wanted an event to serve as a connection for our stories and decided on the closing of a bookstore in a fictional New England seaside town. All our characters would at some point go through the bookstore. This was intended to be the last in our series of Timeless Tales but instead, we fell in love with the town we created and launched the Havenport series.

It’s something of a challenge to build a town, especially when multiple writers are basing their stories there. When your characters go for a picnic in the park, is the gazebo still under repair or did they finish the work in the fall? What was the name of that restaurant on Main? When our characters stop at Millie’s Diner for a burger, we have to remember that in book #1 the booths were red glitter vinyl so in book #4 they can’t be tan leather. And, oh yeah, it’s Mellie’s Diner, not Millie’s.

But that’s part of the fun. Your really get to know your setting. Not just what it’s like today, but the history as well. On our current work in progress, we were all shocked to find out our beloved Royce’s Tavern has a colorful history. It was a brothel in the eighteen hundreds and served a brief stint as a speakeasy in the roaring twenties. The town has taken on a life of its own.

And we wouldn’t have it any other way.

In the quaint seaside town of Havenport, Rhode Island, five couples find their happily ever afters with a little help from the romance section of The Final Chapter bookstore.

BABY, IT’S COLD OUTSIDE — Jane Caulfield should have known better than to read aloud from a book of magick during her famous sister-in-law’s book signing at The Final Chapter bookstore. After all, the last spell she cast brought her and her brother forward in time two hundred years. She knows the power of magick.

She didn’t know the spell would bring her nineteenth century love, Adam Royce, forward in time. Or that he would assume he’d died and joined her in heaven. Jane gets more than she bargained for trying to persuade Adam they’re both alive and in the twenty-first century.

Jane knows they’re soul mates, but convincing Adam may not be so easy. Will Adam insist on returning to his own time, or can Jane use both love and a little magick to help him understand that this time and place is exactly where he’s meant to be?

UNDER HER SPELL — Three little words, and everything changed for Christa Morrow. She should have known it was too soon to tell Jeremy Pearce she loved him, but when their relationship changed from friends to lovers, she assumed he returned her feelings. One look at his face and she knew she was wrong. She planned to speak with him after she gathered her courage, but the discovery of a powerful book of magick—and the evil trying to steal it—forced her to leave in a hurry.

She knew she’d have to face Jeremy when she returned to Havenport, but she was unprepared for the rush of emotions seeing him evoked. Nor did she expect him to profess his love for her. She’s convinced his sudden change of heart is the result of a spell her mother cast.

Jeremy Pearce didn’t know how much he loved Christa until she was gone. When she shows up in Havenport, he demands an answer for where she’s been. But a magick book and evil witches? He doesn’t know whether to hug her or strangle her. Especially when she insists his love isn’t real but the result of a spell.

But when the evil witch shows up and threatens Christa, he’ll do anything he can to save the woman he loves.

THE GHOST OF  YOU — Dean Pearce once loved a ghost, but she left him a long time ago and broke his heart. Now that he’s moved back into his childhood home, he can sense her once again. And it’s driving him crazy. He needs to find out what she wants and how to get rid of her once and for all.

Lila Crewe left Dean for his own good a long time ago, but never got the chance to say goodbye. When the Havenport coven holds a seance, she may finally get the chance to tell him how much she’s always loved him before she disappears forever.

But the Goddess may have other plans. A mysterious poem at the base of a fountain could hold the key to bringing Lila back to life. Can Dean convince Lila she’s worth whatever “sacrifice” the poem demands? Can he successfully perform the tasks set forth, or will he fail and not only lose Lila, but perhaps his life?
