With Mother’s Day approaching, four women living in a picturesque coastal town discover a second chance at love when they finally find their happily-ever-after partners in this anthology of contemporary romance novellas.



Claire Bishop’s life as an art teacher in Sea Glass Bay is full and rewarding, but her heart longs for a family she’ll never have. When she agrees to help out widower, Sully Vaughn, by taking care of his daughter after school, Sully is concerned his little girl, Lindie, is growing too attached to her favorite teacher. Sully is trying his best to protect his child from the heartache of loss that nearly destroyed him, but he hasn’t taken into account his passion for the dynamic woman—nor Lindie’s determination to lay claim to the perfect mom.



Jazzy Dunbar is enjoying life as a single mom, proving that you don’t have to have a man to have it all. Jeremiah Caldwell, a good friend, made the perfect sperm donor. He’s happy with their “no strings attached” relationship ... or is he? He wants to be more than a sometimes-father in baby Caleb’s life. Jazzy doesn’t want to ruin their friendship by allowing their attraction to flare, but when a serious situation threatens, will Jeremiah be able to prove that they can have love and the perfect family?



Single mom Leah Martin needs to find a wedding date for her ex-husband’s wedding. Their son, Owen, is going to be the ringbearer and her attendance is required. But this florist has no time to date around the busy Mother’s Day holiday, which is why she agrees to let her friends set her up for a blind date. Hank DeLeon’s bar shares an alley with Leah’s florist shop, which is the perfect location for a restaurant if she’s willing to relocate. When he’s asked to take her on a blind date, he has to wonder: is this a great chance for a business proposition? Or a once-in-a-lifetime chance at love?



After a corporate restructuring at her accounting firm, Paige Duffy moved north to Sea Glass Bay and opened a handmade candle booth at the coastal town’s popular local craft market. Now her severance is running out and Paige discovers she’s pregnant from a one night stand. Charter boat owner, Gavin Cole, lost his grandfather six months ago, promising him he’d finally pursue his dreams of sailing the open ocean. But when Paige tells him that she’s pregnant with his child, Gavin must decide what adventure he really wants: the one he’s always dreamed of, or the one he never believed possible.



About the authors

USA Today and national bestselling author Anna J Stewart has always had a book in her hand or a story in her heart. A child of the 70’s, early obsessions with Star Wars, Star Trek, and Wonder Woman set her on the path to creating fun, pulse-pounding romance in multiple sub-genres. Since her first novella with Harlequin in 2014, Anna has written and published more than forty romances and swears she’s just getting started. When she’s not writing, she’s dealing with a serious Supernatural and Jason Momoa addiction, experimenting with new cooking and baking recipes, surrounding herself with family and friends or hanging out at her local theater and attending fan conventions.

Prior to writing romance, award-winning USA Today bestseller Melinda Curtis was a junior manager for a Fortune 500 company, which meant when she flew on the private jet she was relegated to the jump seat—otherwise known as the potty. In addition to her Sunshine Valley series from Grand Central Forever, she’s published independently and with Harlequin Heartwarming, including her book Dandelion Wishes, which is an upcoming TV movie starring Amber Marshall. She lives in Central Oregon with her husband—her basketball-playing college sweetheart. While raising three kids, the couple did the soccer thing, the karate thing, the dance thing, the Little League thing and, of course, the basketball thing. Between books, Melinda spends time with her husband remodeling their home by swinging a hammer, grouting tile, and wielding a paintbrush.

Editorial Reviews

‘Family is the strongest of foundations…the best gift we could have gotten this Mother’s Day’


A collection of authors provide well-chosen romances to share in this compendium of works they call A SEA GLASS BAY ROMANCE BOOK. California author Anna J Stewart has published over forty romance novels and for this anthology she offers MOM WANTED. Canadian author Kayla Perrin has also published over forty novels in the romance and mystery/suspense genres and is a popular figure on television shows and the media, offering FATHER WANTED. Oregon author Melinda Curtis has been a manager for a Fortune 500 company and her romance novels have enjoyed being selected for television movies. Her novella – HERO WANTED. South Carolina author Cari Lynn Webb writes novels that reflect her respect for the long marriages of her parents and grandparents. Her selection – FAMILY WANTED. Four talented ladies who have mastered the art of placing romance stories before their public now join forces with this satisfying anthology of novellas.


The characters of each of theses four novellas find not only the location of Sea Glass Bay in common, but they also interrelate in a manner that makes the stories not only strong individually, but also when taken as a collection they grow in sensitivity and beauty. A major tie-in is that time of year as Mother’s Day approaches, allowing the spotlight to illuminate the challenges and successes of each character’s needs. With Mother’s Day approaching, four women living in a picturesque coastal town discover a second chance at love when they finally find their happily-ever-after partners.


Each of the four contributing authors makes a strong impression in this sensitive and positive life-enhancing book – individually and in tandem. Feel good romance collections are too rare these days when emphasis in the media – including books! – is on social problems and discontent. Settle in for happy-ever-after analects!
