Books By This Author

“Five hearts! Tender, sweet, and a lot of fun. A highly recommended read.”

The Romance Studio on All or Nothing

“Laced with a good deal of humor. Ms. Cooke creates characters that will alternately have you laughing and sniffling. [She] makes the transition from writing historical romance to contemporary romance seamlessly and without apparent effort. Writing with a completely different style, [her] creative voice still shines through. I thoroughly enjoyed this emotional, riveting tale.”
