Heart of Montana
Welcome to my Heart of Montana series!
These sweet, small-town contemporary romances with signature Katy Regnery happily-ever-afters is s a six-book series.
The Heart of Montana books follow the love lives of the Gardiner, MT-based Lindstrom siblings: Nils, Lars, Erik and Jenny Lindstrom, along with their friend, Paul Johansson, and Jenny’s nemesis, Tess Branson.
These books are sweet/sensual romances with super hot kisses and delectable tension, but mostly closed-door bedroom scenes. The language varies from book-to-book but most of the main characters abstain from vulgar language (I can’t vouch for some of the ancillary characters, however, who are sometimes really unpredictable!!)
I hope you enjoy the world I’ve created in Gardiner, MT!
A HOLIDAY WEDDING…
Stubbornly small-town Jenny Lindstrom has misgivings when she promises to stand proxy in her best friend’s wedding—misgivings that are fulfilled when tall, handsome Sam Kelley walks into the courthouse an hour late. In order to keep her promise, an afternoon favor turns into a weekend of startling but undeniable attraction, threatening the well-ordered world that keeps her heart at arm’s length from any more pain.
…TURNS INTO A HOLIDAY WEEKEND
Sam’s plan is to fly to Livingston, Montana, take vows for his favorite cousin, and return to Chicago as quickly as possible. But his plan is turned upside-down when he must spend a weekend with Jenny in Gardiner to keep his word. He doesn’t want to fall for the prim, proper schoolteacher whose small-town life seems to him like selling out, but the more time he spends with her, the harder it is to say good-bye.
When city and country come together for Christmas, the unexpected gift is true love.
Waitress Tess Branson has earned a bad reputation, and the nickname “Fast Tessie,” as result of her poor judgement where men are concerned. With a body that matured early, Tess learned from a young age that men – of all ages – were interested in one thing from her. But all Tess has ever really wanted was to connect with someone special – to mean something to someone. Lucas Flynn, the short order cook at the restaurant where Tess works, has just been released on parole. He’s trying to get his life back on track, but can’t help noticing the pretty waitress who treats him kindly, despite his past. At Lucas’s urging, Tess makes a wish on a star, but they’ll have to rely on the magic of Christmas to help it come true.
Fiercely protective Erik Lindstrom has never had much faith in love. When he sees his parent’s marriage collapse, he vows never to place his heart at risk to be broken and manages to keep a safe distance from love. That is, until he is coerced into looking after his sister’s friend, Katrin. Katrin Svenson must leave her home in secret to escape her increasingly unhinged ex-fiancé in the care of a reluctant Erik, who steels himself against her deep, blue eyes and sunny smile. Sparks start to fly between the pretty nurse and the aloof law enforcement officer – sparks that turn to fire as Katrin melts the ice surrounding Erik’s heart. Will Erik find a way to trust in love again before losing Katrin’s heart? And can he keep her safe when a dark force from her past threatens their happiness?
When Trend magazine contracts Lindstrom & Sons to manage a fashion shoot in Yellowstone, easygoing Lars Lindstrom rolls his eyes. “Babysitting” supermodel Samara Amaya’s assistant sounds like a snore, even amidst the park’s lush wildlife and scenery. Little does he know that Jane Mays, Samara’s down-to-earth, smart-mouthed assistant and cousin, will be the most exciting person he’s ever met. Her smoky voice and surprisingly sweet heart rock his world.
Jane has been hurt before, but this time it’s right. From loving the same music to their effortlessly sexy sparring, her handsome new tour guide gets her—and Jane is getting Lars right back until Samara blows into town. Used to living in her cousin’s shadow, Jane knows Lars will be nothing more than a notch in a bedpost if the spoiled supermodel has her way. In the past, maybe she would have stepped aside. This time she’ll find the strength to stand up to Samara once and for all…and trust that Lars will be there to catch her if she falls.
High school principal Paul Johansson has never been lucky in love, which is too bad, because few men in Montana are more naturally romantic. Then his friend Maggie signs him up for Internet dating, and while Paul is initially furious, he’s soon blown away by Holly Morgan, a blonde, blue-eyed art teacher from Connecticut. She might just be the girl of his dreams.
Zoe Flannigan—aka Holly Morgan—totally forgot about the account she set up two years ago on Meet-the-One.com. In fact, after an accident that left her physically and emotionally scarred, she hasn’t been up for meeting or dating anyone. Until Paul. Handsome, sweet, and too-good-to-be-true…but while the built-in anonymity of the Internet offers a buffer, she can’t hide in cyberspace forever, either from Paul’s expectations or herself. There’s a journey she must take, and at the end of it will be a love as beautiful and boundless as the wide Montana sky.
Nils Lindstrom and Maggie Campbell have been circling each other for years. A strong attraction simmers between them, and their hearts beat only for each other. But a tragic secret keeps them apart.
Out of the blue, Maggie learns her U.S. visa has expired and she’ll be deported. Nils offers marriage under the guise of a favor, but only if they can just remain friends. Despite the whisperings of his heart, falling in love again is a risk he won’t take. Yet, regardless of how it begins, marriage can take on a life of its own—and true love is more powerful than either Maggie or Nils ever expected.
