Author of the bestselling series, Southern Boys. I live in Central Illinois and have always had a love for books. Writing was something I have also enjoyed for years and until the last couple years it was something I kept to myself. Taking a chance I submitted one of my novels and wahlah, here I am today. Over 15 published books later and still going strong. It is so easy to get lost in the world of fiction.
I’m a mother of two, one high schooler and a second grader, I know almost seven years separates the two. What was I thinking? lol
With a 7 year old in the house I would say I have developed a liking for the Disney channel, As if I had a choice. It was that or the Channel surfing my husband does. You know just when you find yourself interested in something, BAM, it is changed to a new show. Ugh!
So Disney it is, Children’s network and all those crazy kid shows… I have a few favorites 😉

Prologue:
“Mommy, I’m hungry,” Maddison spoke from behind me. The
sound of her sweet little voice only made my heart ache more intensely.
“I know, baby. Mommy will find you something real soon. I
promise.” I slowed the car to a stop and reached for the bag in the passenger
seat beside me. Digging around, I pulled out the package of crackers I had
taken from our last stop.
Turning around, looking back at my sweet little girl, I
forced a smile. The last thing I wanted her to see was how unsettled I felt
inside. She looked so tired, and seeing that in her eyes made me feel like a
worthless mother.
Tearing the package open, I handed her the two crackers.
“Here, sweet pea, eat these for now. I know it’s not much, but I’ll get ya
something else real soon, okay?”
Maddison nodded her head and took the crackers from me. “Do
you still have juice left in your cup?” I asked, and she nodded her sleepy little
head once again. “Good, we’ll be stopping real soon.”
Turning back to face forward, I took in a deep breath and
began looking around. I had passed a sign that read “Welcome to Brooklet” about
a mile back. As I looked around, I found myself wondering if there was even a
hotel here in this small town. It was definitely a big change from San
Diego.
With only a little over two hundred dollars left to my name,
I knew I had to make it last. The thought of not being able to take care of
Maddison made me sick to my stomach.
I had no choice; I couldn’t go back. I had to leave, had to
hide out. He had crossed a line that could never be fixed. A life like we were
living had to stop. I couldn’t go on in fear any longer; we deserved so much
more than that.
I knew I was taking a chance by going back home to Palm
Beach, but I needed my family more than ever. I knew it would be the first
place he would look, but it was the only place I could go.
Keeping Maddi safe came first. It was my job, and for the
last six months, I had failed her and the memory of her daddy, Troy.
So the choice to leave in the middle of the night, when Seth
least expected it, was an easy one to make. A choice I would never regret, no
matter how much I had to sacrifice.
Maddi needed stability and security. When she had that, my
needs would come, but not until then. “I need to potty, Mommy,” Maddison
announced from the backseat.
The decision had just been made; it looked like we would
stop in Brooklet for now, at least for tonight.
Looking around for a place to stop, I pulled into the
parking lot of a small restaurant. It was just after seven at night, and the
lot appeared deserted. Two vehicles were parked up close to the entrance. The
rest of it was empty.
Holding Maddison’s hand securely in mine, we walked side by
side toward the entrance.
The smell of grease engulfed me when I opened the door, and
it smelled amazing. It had been hours since I had last eaten anything.
“Is it just the two of you?” an older woman with a genuine
smile asked. I nodded my head as she led us to a small booth in the back.
“Do you have a restroom my little girl could use?” I asked
as I looked around the small dining area.
“Just down that hall, to your left. Can I get anything
started for the two of you?” she questioned.
“Yeah, um, a grilled cheese and chocolate milk if ya got
it?” I replied as I led Maddi toward the bathroom.
“What are you having darlin’?” she hollered after me.
“Nothing thanks. I’m not hungry,” I said over my shoulder as
I nudged Maddi along. I forced a smile as I hurried toward the bathroom.
“Mommy, your tummy is growling.” Maddi looked up at me as I
continued to guide her toward the back.
“No, baby. Mommy ate this morning. I’m good,”
I assured her.
I had decided when we left San Diego that I would only allow
myself one meal a day. Even though I would kill for a juicy burger and fries, I
had to use my head. The money had to last until I found a source of
income.
When we made our way back to our table, I thought for a
moment we were at the wrong one.
There was a large salad at one side, and on the other a bowl
of applesauce. A large soda with a cup of chocolate milk sat in the center.
I stood looking around in confusion, just as the lady who
greeted us put a plate of fries on the table. “Ma’am, I didn’t order all this.
I can’t…” I began to say, as panic set in. She held up her hand to stop me.
“Don’t you worry yourself over it darlin’. It’s all been
taken care of.” She grinned and nudged her head toward the door.
I looked up just as a tall, broad man pushed open the door.
He tipped his head toward me and winked, a dimpled grin gracing his lips. I
stood staring at him until he disappeared through the exit.
“That sweet man just bought the two of you dinner.” She
placed her hand on my shoulder and gave it a reassuring squeeze. “There’s kind
people out there, sweetheart. Colt Thompson is a good man.”
Her final words left an emptiness in my chest. A good
man. I wasn’t sure they existed anymore.
Besides my father, I didn’t know many others. Troy,
Maddison’s father, was a good man—a man who gave his life for his country and
never got the chance to know he was gonna be a father.
My brother was also a good man, but other than those few, I
was starting to feel as though good men were only mythical.

I enjoy happy endings in my love stories. Loving those scenes that give it the needed angst and heat to keep you hooked and wanting more. Just enough drama to make her heart race and your stomach flutter. I haven’t always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently I have taken on a new liking and now I am addicted to Romance Novel.
I am a Limitless Publishing Author and love sharing my stories with my great fans. Feedback is great and I really enjoy interacting with my readers.
I live in Illinois and enjoy spending time with my husband and two children.
You will always find me with my kindle or paperback in hand as it is my favorite pass time.
And I never leave home without a small notebook. You never know when an idea for a new story will strike.

#BlogTour for #FindingGavin By C.A. Harms “I had to believe he came into my life for a reason.” ~ @Charms0814 @EJBookPromos

Gavin was a broken hearted cowboy from Savannah… 
The one she fell for even though he tried to warn her away.
Maria’s entire life had been one rejection after another, always going after things that were just out of reach.
Gavin was no exception.
She wanted him, so desperately… 
But life had a way of making things unattainable, at least for her anyway.
Just when things began to change, once again the darkness glooms, and Maria finds that her happy ending may once again be…
Unreachable.

“Look at me,” she said.

I shook my head and buried my face in my pillow like some child. I guess I felt that, if I ignored the entire situation long enough, it would eventually just disappear.

“Please talk to me,” she pleaded. I buried my face even deeper into my pillow, continuing to hide with the hope that she would just give up.

Kori wasn’t that kind of girl, though, and I knew that. I just wished this time she would be. “You can ignore me all you want. You can push me away. Hell, you can even run from me,” she stated, pushing on my shoulder and causing me to finally face her. My lips trembled as her eyes bored into mine. “But I will follow you. I will stand by you and force you to face this. I love you, and I refuse to watch you suffer alone. I’m here for you.” She reached forward, gripping my face in her hands. “I am not going anywhere, no matter how hard you fall.

I will pick you up every god damn day if I have to.”

Tears ran down my cheeks, and I fought back the urge to let it all out. I sniffled and narrowed my eyes at her.

“Go ahead and get pissed. Yell at me. Scream.

When you’re all done and you’ve got all that anger out of you…” She paused, narrowing her eyes at me in return. “I will still be by your side, holding you up.”

The tears were impossible to hold back. My body shook, and I tried with everything I had to hold it all in. I fought until I no longer had the fight in me, and all at once…I broke.

I sobbed and she pulled me close. “Let it out, let it all go.” She soothed my cries by rubbing my back gently.

“He left,” I cried. “He just walked out and I haven’t seen or heard from him since. He was so angry about me not telling him. I think he hates me and that hurts so much.” I continued to cry. “I needed him and he left. I wanted him to hold me and tell me that we would get through it together, but he left.”

Kori pulled back and looked at me closely. “Gavin?” she questioned me, and I nodded my head in reply.

“Um, I’ve only seen him once, the day I got back into town. From the looks of it, though, he isn’t doing all that well, either.” She paused as if she were thinking something over, debating whether to continue with what she’d planned to say. “What?” I asked.

“He, uh, he was sporting a pretty good shiner on his left eye,” Kori whispered.

My stomach tensed and my chest burned. “What?”

Review
**ARC Received from Author**

Let me begin by saying that I did not read the first book in this series, Forgiving Reed. While I was lost a few times when many characters were in a scene, I did not know their relationship or why they were important to the main characters, I was still able to understand the story line.

Finding Gavin starts in the POV of one of the main characters, Maria. It shifts back and forth throughout the story. Set in a small town in Georgia, Maria is in love with Gavin, the other main character but he has left and she doesn’t understand why. He took her heart with her. What she doesn’t know, and it will eventually become clear is that Gavin has feelings for her too. But Gavin has a past he must deal with. And a wife. That “wife” complicates his life and pushes Maria away. Gavin is ready to shut his heart down for good. If Maria and Gavin are to be together they must overcome some rather large obstacles. Are “they” worth working through them?

This is a cute love story with many characters who are either family or like family. Throw in some side twists and turns with Maria’s immediate family that just complicate her life. The story begins with a serious situation for Maria and you really get to know her family but then they really aren’t mentioned again. For as tight a family as they appeared, you lose touch with them and never really hear form them again. I enjoy stories that incorporate family and show a respect for family values so I did enjoy this part of the story. I was pleased with how the author wrote the story line and how Maria and Gavin ended up. I really enjoyed the “Mickey” part of the story, it warmed my heart even more to Gavin. I kept waiting for the “bad news” and held my breath a few times. That addition was a nice touch. The story kept me interested and wanting to learn more about the characters.

Overall I give this book 4 stars. I would recommend this book. You could read it as a stand alone but it is suggested that you read the first one before.
