Brave. Bold. Brainy. One woman reached for the gold, one for the law, one for the university, and one ran as far from home as possible. But often, the best laid plans fall apart, and Starting Over is the only thing to do.

True-Blue Texan is the first of the Starting Over series. 

A fish out of water. University instructor, Katherine Kirby, reluctantly faces a new city and a new job. How could she, who was used to teaching eager undergraduates at a prestigious college, relate to a class of adult high school dropouts seeking an equivalency diploma. She has no family, no love in her life, and no choice but to jump into her new position and do the best she can. After all, it’s only temporary while she gets her career back on track.  

Her new students, however, begin to touch her heart.  Especially the tall, dark Texan in the second row. Successful business owner, Nick Martinelli’s presence in her class is a secret--from his parents, his customers and the entire city. But his interest in Katherine is no secret. In his desire to teach the teacher, however, Nick learns a little something himself.

    I loved this story.. a great read with so many different facets. I also liked that the suggestion of sex was there without making the entire story about sex. Thank you. Looking forward to reading the others.
  • Inspirational and thoughtful book

    Love the story line. This book leaves you feeling good once it's read. Romance was there but how so much more. Life lessons such as drop outs get GEDs, older kids are adoptable, you can live after loss of loved ones and you're never too old to go back to school. This series should prove to be a success.

    A romance that inspires and touches your heart. Characters are fully developed, flaws and all, relatable and real. I can’t wait to read more from this author.
