Have a Hart Sweet Romances

If you love sweet romances (PG-rating), look no further than my new, Have a Hart series. The Harts are a family of San Francisco firefighters. Their family motto is: Heart comes first.

First up is little sister, Melisa Hart, who has surprisingly never dated a fireman. With lovebirds matchmaking, Melisa gets her Christmas wishes to finally come true.

I Create Purty Thangs, Feb 12, 2017, “Sometimes it takes life getting in the way, for you to move aside and accept where fate takes you. I believe that is what happened to these two. And it didn’t hurt that they had two lovebirds pushing them along.”


Jenna Hart and Larry Davison are next with a sweet Valentine’s romance, Valentine Hound Dog.

Former fireman Larry Davison covers his burn scars well, by working at an elementary school as a custodian where he finds a lost hound dog behind the dumpster.

Fashion designer Jenna Hart is in town to do her annual charity photo shoot when she loses her top model, Little Treat. When Larry turns up with the puppy, she asks him to pose in her fashion shots.

Larry hears Jenna’s doing the shoot as an act of charity, and he balks at being her good deed. Can Jenna convince Larry beauty is never skin deep and love’s arrow strikes not only the beautiful, but the bold?

Connor [Spring Fling Kitty]


At twenty-nine, Connor Hart, is one of the youngest fire chiefs in the country, and he takes his responsibilities seriously with no time for love and relationships. When his ex-girlfriend, Dr. Elaine Woo, bids on him at a bachelor auction and throws in a Dalmatian puppy, he is puzzled and cautious of her motives.

Artist and poet Nadine Woo is always down on her luck. The cast-off half-sister of Dr. Elaine, she’s never measured up, according to her strict and distant father. When Nadine and her mother are about to be evicted from their apartment, she gets an interesting offer from Dr. Elaine Woo. Seems she’s in need of a little bit of help concerning her relationship with Fire Chief Connor Hart.

As soon as Nadine meets Connor, she knows she’s in for a rough ride. Connor is the fireman who rescued her and her little gray kitten, and she’s never forgotten how safe she felt in his arms.

When Nadine takes her sister’s place at a spring fling weekend with Connor, love ignites, and there’s no going back.

Can a spunky little kitty show Connor and Nadine that doing the wrong thing is sometimes right, especially when it comes to love?

Review: Miki’s Hope. May 8, 2017 “This is one of the series that I want to read them all–and hope that Rachelle Ayala keeps on going with–every one is a winner!”

Larry and Jenna, again, Valentine Wedding Hound



Miki’s Hope, Feb 14, 2017, “How could I resist putting up this wonderful book on Valentine’s Day–obviously I couldn’t!! My review of Valentine Hound Dog is still live and can be found HERE. This series is really good but each can be read as a stand alone. This book continues the story of Jenna Hart and Larry Davison–two total opposites–but they do say opposites attract. These two really love each other but have a couple of major issues to work through. It doesn’t help that one of Jenna’s sisters got Jenna involved in a reality TV show–about her upcoming Valentine’s Day wedding to Larry. It is all about dares–and what dares they were–OUCH. Can their love get them through? Can Harley-that adorable basset hound–manage to save the day? This one will keep you reading–it did me–straight through!!”

Grady, Summer Love Puppy [TBD]

and baby brother Dale [TBD]

The Hart family will delight you with clean and wholesome love stories, filled with family, friends [both people and animals].
