Welcome back to Under the Covers Book Blog, Bella! We are thrilled about your newest release, YOUR LOVE IS MINE! This is part of the Maine Sullivans series. Please tell us what readers can expect from this series!
Thank you for having me back! I can’t wait for everyone to finally meet the Maine Sullivans. I’ve been thinking about this branch of the Sullivan family for years, and it’s so exciting to finally get to write their stories! Every day, as I write about each of the seven siblings, and their parents, I always have a huge smile on my face. I hope readers will feel the same.
I always love your heroes. What is one characteristic that you think all heroes should have?
For me, it’s important that a hero be supportive and caring, but also know when to give the woman he loves space to take care of things on her own.
Where you do you get the inspiration for the conflict/plot in your stories?
While in the rest of my life I’m a pretty big planner, when it comes to my stories I firmly believe in letting the magic flow. It all starts with my characters—the plot falls from who my hero and heroine are, and why they’re so good together.
Family is a huge part of this series. What would you say is the most difficult thing about writing a series that centers around a family? How do you overcome it?
Honestly, I love absolutely every part of writing about a family. All of my series are about families. The Sullivans and the Morrisons are blood-related, while the Maverick Billionaires are foster brothers and my Married in Malibu series is about a group of colleagues at a wedding venue who have become as close as a family.
You’ve had a lot of success with all your Sullivans series. What would you say is the key to your success?
One key is like that I truly love the family. I can’t imagine a day will come when I won’t want to write about the Sullivans!
When you aren’t reading or writing, what is your favorite past time?
I love to hike, travel, swim, eat, and my newest hobby that I’m hooked on is needlepoint.
Do you have a favorite Sullivan?
Impossible! I love them all. 🙂
Thanks so much for answering my questions! And once again, congratulations on the new book!
Thank you so much! I hope everyone loves reading Cassie and Flynn’s story as much as I loved writing it.

Series: Maine Sullivans #1
Flynn Stewart, an award-winning screenwriter, seems to have the perfect Hollywood life. Until his dark past comes crashing back when he learns his long-lost sister has passed away--and he has a six-month-old niece named Ruby. Flynn vows to give the little girl who now means everything to him a better childhood than he or his sister ever had. So when he finds out that Ruby's nanny is trying to sell their story to the press, he takes his niece as far from Hollywood as he can.
One of seven siblings in Bar Harbor, Cassie Sullivan has always been grateful for the love and support of her tight-knit family. Because of them, she had the courage to create a successful candy confection business. So when a friend of her cousin needs a place to stay with his baby for a few weeks, she's happy to offer him her cabin in the woods. But from the first moment she meets Flynn and Ruby, her heart is lost to the gorgeous man and his adorable little girl.
Flynn has never met anyone as cheerful and open as Cassie. Instantly drawn to her, he finds himself telling her things about his past that he's never spoken of to anyone--things that make him certain he could never be worthy of her. Only, Cassie isn't about to let the pair who have stolen her heart go without a fight--using all the light, love, and laughter she can give them. Will the nightmares from Flynn's past continue to haunt him and and steal away the joy of a future with Cassie? Or will Cassie's love, and the support of her big family, be powerful enough to help him face his long-buried demons and conquer them at last?
