Taking A Risk – A Moonshire Bay Small Town Romance Book 3

When Kate Hamilton’s husband is sentenced for embezzlement and fraud, she loses everything. Kate can’t think of a better place to start over than Moonshire Bay.

Zach Elstoy is the town attorney and a confirmed bachelor. He came close to marriage once and that experience was enough for him to vow never to take that risk again.

When Zach meets Kate, sparks fly. But Kate has a different kind of vow from Zach’s – she’s had her fill of lawyers after her ex-husband’s case and their divorce. She wants nothing to do with him or his profession.

Zach brilliant idea is to trick Kate so he can get to know her better. When she finds out about his deception, this might be one case he can’t win.

The Moonshire Bay series is small town, sweet romance at its best – Hallmark-style with a HEA. Each story is connected but can be read as a standalone.
