There’s a time in any authors life when they want to try something new. I’ve decided to write a small town contemporary series. Don’t worry, I’m still writing historical romances, in fact, I have Addicted to the Duke out in June, and A Love to Remember book #7 in my Disgraced Lords series out in August.
But three childhood friends, Tyler, Ric and Chase, who’d grown up in Coopers Creek, Colorado came calling and would not leave me alone until I’d played matchmaker. Something a romance writer loves to do. The men who left Coopers Creek five years ago, have built a very successful investment company called Horizon Enterprises. They have plenty of money and absolutely no trouble finding female company. However, they seem to be missing something. That something is the right woman who challenges them. That’s where I come in.
The first book in USA Today bestselling author, Bronwen Evans’s flirty new contemporary romance series…
Emily Stanford’s trip to New York, and her plan to bring her orphaned goddaughter home to Coopers Creek, backfires. Hayley’s coming home but to Emily’s horror she’s hired as Hayley’s nanny and moving in with her ex-lover, Hayley’s uncle, the handsome cowboy come banker, Tyler Jeffries. He still makes her heart pound-even though four years ago he walked away from their relationship without a backward glance.
Tyler hates that he has no choice but to let Emily move in, but this is about Hayley and what she needs. He can’t believe the woman he blames for his sister’s death still fiercely fires his blood. Back in Coopers Creek, out of his comfort zone, coping with PTA meetings and white picket fences, he lets his heart’s defences down, only to have Emily betray him again…
LOVE Me is up for pre-order and is releasing on 13th February 2017.

Snippet from Love Me
“Hello, Tyler,” Emily said evenly. “It’s been a long time.”
“Not long enough.”
“It’s a pleasure to see you, too,” she retorted, stung by his nasty remark.
He studied her for one long, unhurried moment before seemingly dismissing what he saw, as though she was of no consequence.
Her face heated, angry that she let him affect her so much. She knew she wasn’t one of his usual bombshells, who plastered themselves to his side like a Band-Aid over a wound. Emily gathered her pride. Her breasts might be small, but they were real and nicely shaped—
Tyler’s sensual, yet direct voice startled her. “Why are you in New York?”
She should’ve been resistant to the affect he had on her, but it seemed as though he still had the power to melt her insides. Keep Calm. “I came to see Hayley, of course. She called me to come.”
“She has all my contact info in her phone. Kids her age know their way around smartphones better than a blind man reads Braille.”
“Phone? What phone?”
“Her own. I gave her one in case she had an emergency and I pay the bill.” Tyler remained silent as she continued. “And she has an emergency. She hates it here. She begged me to come.”
Speaking of hate… Tyler’s expression was full of it. But even though he glared at her with his fabulous, stormy eyes, Emily wanted him. The wall of sheer animal charisma standing in front of her made her body heat.
He was male in the most primal sense of the word. She could smell the testosterone rising from him, and underneath it, the faint scent of some expensive cologne, which increased her awareness of the sexual tension that hummed in the small room.
A room with a bed.
Emily inwardly cursed her weakness. Her nipples hardened beneath her bra and she went rigid, deeply disconcerted by her strong reaction to the sensual charge emanating from Tyler.
Ignoring it, she said, “Hayley’s world has been turned upside down. She barely remembers her mother and she just lost her grandmother. She’s frightened of a new home. New York is so different than Coopers Creek and she doesn’t know anyone here except for you and Mrs. Clark. Hayley told me that Mrs. Clark is leaving next week. She also said that you’re parading nannies in front of her, which makes her think that you don’t want her.”
“That’s not true.” He cursed and sank down onto the edge of the bed. “Of course I want her.”
“I can just imagine the type of women you’re interviewing, and I hope you’ll remember the nanny is not there to look after your…needs. I’m sure the qualifications are totally different,” she said sarcastically, a touch of the green eyed monster rising sharply.
His gaze made her shiver. “Who’s looking after my needs is none of your business. But upsetting my niece is.”
She tried to take the high road and remain calm. “How have I upset your niece? She doesn’t even know I’m here.”
“Good. I want it to stay that way. She needs time to settle into her new surroundings and forget—”
“Forget?” Emily interjected angrily. “You don’t just forget someone because they die. Some people can’t switch off their emotions like you can. Some of us actually like having feelings, Tyler. And some of us actually want to be loved.” She snapped her mouth shut before she said something she’d regret. She wasn’t going to reveal her true feelings to him. How, after four years, he still stirred her heart.
The second book, is Emily’s brother Ric.
Heal Me sees Ric stuck in Coopers Creek and when he spies the local sexy vet, Kate, sparks fly.
After her fiance dies, Kate Donoghue has picked up the broken pieces of her heart and moved on. She’s sworn off men and is building a new life in Coopers Creek, Colorado as the local vet and senior member of the mountain rescue team. So why now is she suddenly distracted by the seriously sexy investment banker come cowboy, Ric Stanford? The man screams big city playboy but what can it hurt to indulge? Kate swears she won’t fall for Ric… but the heat between them is scorching.
Investment Banker Ric Stanford is enjoying his new life in the New York office. He’s finally putting distance between his hometown memories of Lizzie and her reckless death. So he’s more than pissed when on a trip home to Coopers Creek he breaks his leg and is stuck there for the foreseeable future. That is, until sexy vet, Kate Donoghue, arrives to attend to his sister’s dog and suddenly a month in Coopers Creek looks totally irresistible.
HEAL Me is up for pre-order and is releasing on 13th February 2017.
