Hello friends and readers –

Thank you so very much for your interest in my books. I am delighted to let you know the seventh and final Hope’s Crossing book, WILD IRIS RIDGE, is now available. This is Brendan Caine’s book and while I was sorry to say good-bye (for now!)Wild Iris Ridge to my friends in Hope’s Crossing, I loved the chance to give this lonely widower another chance at a happy ending. Isn’t the cover gorgeous?

The book is receiving some fantastic reviews. Romantic Times gave the book four stars and reviewer Melanie Bates said, “In Thayne’s latest, her beautiful, honest storytelling goes straight to the heart. Her characters are authentically vulnerable and the light, amusing banter between them adds to the sweet warmth of the this story. A well-defined plot with universal themes of love and loss make this a moving yet powerful romance.”

Here is the back cover copy:

“Lucy Drake and Brendan Caine have only one thing in common…

And it’s likely to tear them apart. Because it was Brendan’s late wife, Jessie—and Lucy’s best friend—who’d brought them together in the first place. And since Jessie’s passing, Brendan’s been distracted by his two little ones…and the memory of an explosive kiss with Lucy years before his marriage. Still, he’ll steer clear of her. She’s always been trouble with a capital T.

Lucy couldn’t wait to shed her small-town roots for the big city. But now that she’s back in Hope’s Crossing to take care of the Queen Anne home her late aunt has left her, she figures seeing Brendan Caine again is no big deal. After all, she’d managed to resist the handsome fire chief once before, but clearly the embers of their attraction are still smoldering….”

Snow Angel CoveUp next for me will be a brand-new series, HAVEN POINT, set on a mountain lake in a small Idaho town. The first book, SNOW ANGEL COVE, will be out in November. This is really a spin-off series to Hope’s Crossing as the hero of the first book is Aidan Caine, brother to Dylan, Brendan and Charlotte Caine. I loved writing this book and can’t wait to introduce readers to an all-new community of fascinating people.

As always, I love to hear from readers! Your letters and emails always touch my heart. For the latest in what’s happening in my world, please join me on Facebook, Twitter or through my email newsletter.

All my very best,
