I felt all wrong until I met you.
Jesse Stone is rebuilding his life. He’s ditched his no-good ex, sworn off men, moved to a new town with his four best friends, and started the pottery business of his dreams. And then he slept with his hunky new neighbor. Oops. Jesse needs to focus on work, but all he can think about is getting Finn between his hands like a perfectly-shaped work of clay.
Trouble just blew into town, and his name is Jesse. Finn Hart knows that pursuing Jesse will ignite old family tensions, but he can’t stay away. The construction foreman has never built a lasting relationship. He’s too busy keeping the peace in a town that was founded by one Hart, but is slowly being strangled by another—Finn’s grandfather.
Finn and Jesse are on the same page: they want to save Hart’s Bay, and it starts by bringing tourists in with Jesse’s new art gallery. But their hearts are bruised, and taking a chance comes with a price. Not everyone in Hart’s Bay wants change. For a few narrow minds, nothing good should come to Finn’s branch of the Harts, and that includes love.
Can love wash away twenty years of bad blood and bring a new dawn for Jesse, Finn, and all of Hart’s Bay?
Hard Hart is the first book in the new Hart’s Bay series about a small town full of nosy but well-meaning neighbors and brotherly banter. It’s a standalone novel with a happily-ever-after ending, and plenty of smiles and steam along the way. If that cove could talk… oh boy, has it ever seen things. The second Hart’s Bay novel, Changed Hart, is out now!

Beautiful, captivating, heartwarming!
I loved Jesse and Finn and Hart’s Bay! I found this story dynamic and heartfelt and while it deals with serious issues that were incredibly frustrating Ed approaches these topics gentle but still boldly as they should be.
I found Jesse and Finn’s connection incredibly hot from the start and with a little humor and coincidence, thrown in, it made for a steamy, lust-filled time! As they got to know each other they changed their views and ultimate wants and their relationship grew organically.
I loved Jesse’s friends, they are some colorful, and wonderful characters and I truly look forward to more of them and can’t wait to watch them each find their person in their new little home of Hart’s Bay.
This was a fantastic start to this small town series sand I look forward to more from the Hart family and can’t wait for Rain’s story!!!
