He’s all kinds of man. But is he a family man?
It’s good to be home! But civilian life isn’t easy for Mark Delaney. The former surf champ copes by carving California waves and working solo as the handyman for his family’s beachfront hotel. Until Laurel Prescott, pretty owner of the new B and B—and widowed mother of three—asks for his help. One small task leads to another and another, and suddenly Mark is knee-deep in kids, responsibility…and a love he never dreamed possible.
March 2018 FOREVER A FATHER (The Delaneys of Sandpiper Beach book #1) Harlequin Special Edition and available for pre-order now.
“Will you be my dad?”
Ask me anything but that.
Once upon a time, Dr. Daniel Delaney had it all. But he lost it in the blink of an eye, and he won’t let himself fall again—not even for his dedicated new assistant, Keela O’Mara, and her adorable, lonely little girl, Anna. Resisting a starry-eyed four-year-old is tough enough. Denying her perfect, loving single mom may be more than Daniel can handle…
“Lynne Marshall manages to pull me into every scene in FOREVER A FATHER, where characters are always genuine and any emotions are heartfelt.”

4 1/2 StarsRomantic Times Review Magazine:
KEEP CALM AND…HAVE A BABY?
Leif Andersen wants to be alone. Everyone in Heartlandia knows about his tragic past and they allow him to keep to himself. With his blue eyes and blond hair, the rugged workaholic contractor might be an “excellent catch.” But he has zero interest in being caught…until Marta Hoyas moves into his house while she is working for him.
Marta wants to be alone. Her baby’s father dumped her. The last thing she needs is a romantic entanglement with a gorgeous guy who can offer no promises.
R.T. Reviews 4 1/2 stars TOP PICK for March. “Humor takes precedence in Marshall’s romantic mystery. Her aw-shucks dialogue and quotable catchphrases give a fly-on-the-wall perspective. Her culturally opposite couple is genuinely lovable, while her returning and new co-stars are essential parts of the tale.”
WRITING HER OWN HAPPY ENDING?
Journalist Lilly Matsuda just writes headlines; she doesn’t make them. That is, until she runs afoul of Gunnar Norling while on assignment in the tiny town of Heartlandia. The handsome policeman intrigues more than Lilly’s investigative senses…but she isn’t going to let Gunnar’s megawatt smile or smoldering good looks melt her heart.
Gunnar isn’t a fan of people snooping around Heartlandia. He’s been sworn to secrecy about the town’s mysterious past, and he refuses to compromise that for anyone…even beautiful Lilly, who’s hot on the story’s trail. Besides, she’s not going to stick around forever, and Gunnar refuses to let his heart get trampled on—unless Lilly decides to put love first!
CataRomance 5 Stars: Review here. “A downhome feel is evident all throughout the Heartlandia miniseries, and Lynne Marshall makes every scene engagingly enjoyable.—HER PERFECT PROPOSAL is captivating with distinctive characters and a notable storyline. Lynne Marshall is a master when it comes to heartwarming romance.”

4 hearts from The Romance Reader review website.
Anne Grady knew better than anyone that love was complicated. When she’d left her hometown, she thought she was leaving her past heartbreak behind for good, as well. But practically the moment she returned to care for her injured parents, she stumbled headlong into their confidant—her first love, Jack Lightfoot.
Jack had been unable to deny his feelings for Annie when he was a teenager dating her best friend, and he certainly couldn’t muffle the spark twisting between them now—even if memories of the past kept threatening to push them apart. This time Jack wasn’t going to let history repeat itself—he was going to show Annie that the two of them were meant to be much more than best friends.
