Trust in You
Part One in the Falling for You series.
A first love summer romance full of intrigue, lust and lies.
From the moment she met him, Ella Peterson had questions. As always, though, she’s too shy to ask.
Older and sexy as hell, mysterious Adam Brook soon sweeps sheltered Ella off her feet; but is he as perfect as he appears to be, or is there more to him than he’s telling her?
Ella’s world has already turned upside down after moving from England to rural Kansas. She and her sisters were hoping for a more secure future, but instead find that life can be tough when jobs are scarce and the stakes often higher than anticipated.
When events spiral out of Ella’s control, she learns the person she needs to rely on most is herself and her instincts on who to trust in the future.
It’s just that her instincts are screaming at her to trust Adam; it’s what he tells her that makes that a problem.
This is the first book in the Falling for You series.

Inspiration & Favourite Scene
When I started writing Trust in You, all I had was the opening scene in my head. I could visualise a group of sisters arriving in America from England and the youngest of them starting to run a market stall where she would meet a group of local men. The girl would be shy and unworldly so this fitted in well with one of my favourite tropes of a first love romance. The men she met would be flirtatious and teasing and she would not be able to handle their banter well. My favourite scene in the book is when Adam corners Ella in the market bathroom and tells her he likes her. I think it depicts Adam’s no nonsense, yet caring nature well and is the first glimpse we see of the chemistry between them.
All of the romances I write have a key focus on trust and the importance it plays in a relationship, so my main male lead had to challenge the trust of my heroine in a way that readers could still feel warm and fuzzy about. One of my readers has said they now have a crush on Adam, and I was thrilled to hear that, it’s exactly the response I was hoping to achieve.
