About B. L. Crumley

She also enjoys hiking, biking, reading, nature, and exploring new places (especially beaches). While her writing is fiction, all of the beaches, hikes, and hidden coves included in her books are real places (and definitely worth visiting). B. L.

She rescues animals. Not people. But she couldn't just leave him...
After becoming a widow, Elle Ashburn returns to her hometown of Rocky Shores, Oregon, and tries to put her life back together.
Elle isn't a big fan of people. Especially men. She prefers to spend time with the animals she rescues, help out at her family's bakery, and explore the beach at Seal Cove, her secret sanctuary. But one day she discovers a handsome stranger stranded on her beach. A man who needs help. Against every instinct, she decides to help him.
Chase Montgomery finds himself inexplicably drawn to his rescuer, the mysterious and intriguing Elle. Although she is clearly wounded from something in her past, Chase is determined to help her. As he unearths her secrets, he finds himself falling in love ... and consumed with guilt.
Because he has a secret of his own.
Will Elle be able to look beyond his deceit and accept him for the man he is, or will she go back to the wounded woman who found him at Seal Cove?
Author's Note: This is a clean, entertaining, feel-good, romance with a guaranteed happy ending.
Rocky Shores veterinarian Tyler Collins has more on his plate than he can handle. And he definitely doesn’t have time to look after Julia Lancaster, the hotel heiress who’s recently moved to town. Despite her money, fancy car, and tendency to stand out, there’s just something about her that he finds very attractive… and incredibly frustrating.
Julia moved to Rocky Shores looking for a change of scenery, and to gain some independence from her controlled and stifling life in LA. What she didn’t plan on was falling for Tyler, the hunky vet, who seems to be either disapproving of her every move or wanting to kiss her.
When a tragic event forces them apart, they both must confront their past hurts in order to move forward. Will they be able to overcome their differences before circumstances tear them apart for good?
Struggling to digest the betrayal of his ex-girlfriend, private investigator Ryan Andrews escapes to Rocky Shores, Oregon, to take a much-needed break from work. And to lick his wounds — what kind of PI doesn’t suspect that their girlfriend is cheating on them?
On an early morning motorcycle ride, Ryan unexpectedly meets Samantha Mayfield: an attractive and mysterious woman who seems to want nothing to do with him. Sam claims that she’s only there for a short visit to help out at her aunt’s bed & breakfast, but something doesn’t add up.
Sam came to town to lay low for a while — and to help her aunt while she recovers from surgery. Not to get suckered into taking cooking lessons from a hotshot PI whose smoldering gaze threatens to reveal her biggest secret. Despite all his charm, and the fact that he constantly rescues her from the crazy predicaments she finds herself in, she can’t trust him with this.
But when her worst fears materialize, will Ryan be able to save her? And can a relationship that started on a shaky foundation prove strong enough to withstand the test of time?
After spending years living abroad, Tom Lancaster returns to the States and reluctantly makes good on his promise to visit his siblings in Rocky Shores. His plans for a quick stay in the coastal tourist town are forgotten when he runs into Colleen Baker, the sweet and beautiful animal shelter manager who makes him want to be someone he’s not. Someone better.
On most days, Colleen is generally content with her life. She enjoys her job running the local animal shelter, spending time with her friends, and living in her outdated condo overlooking the bay. Then Tom shows up.
She’s instantly drawn to his flirty, bad-boy charm, despite her heart’s repeated warnings that nothing is going to end well with this maddeningly attractive hotel heir. When everything in her life comes crashing down, it becomes impossible to ignore the one thing that remains firm: her feelings for him.
But Tom has issues of his own. Issues that he thinks she can fix. In making every attempt to give Colleen everything money can buy, he’s unable to give her the one thing she needs: his heart.
