Book 1: Heart of Clay
Callan Matthews is a master at burying pain and emotions. Her husband Clay mistakenly thinks he knows everything there is to know about this woman he loves. Callan’s secret, once revealed, could create a chasm too deep for either of them to cross.
"What an amazing love story."~Amazon reviewer
"The story itself could help couples who are faced with marital issues."~Amazon reviewer
"Most romance novels are about the boy and girl getting together. This story is more about the ups and downs of a marriage. It is refreshing to read about a couple working through their problems and renewing their commitment to each other."~Amazon reviewer

"This was a wonderful story about romance, how families help each other, honesty, and keeping God in their lives daily no matter the trials of daily life."~Amazon reviewer
"Finally a love story during marriage. I love the happily ever after."~Amazon reviewer
"Just gotta find time to read the whole thing at once because I hate to put it down once I start reading!"~Amazon reviewer
Book 3: Not His Type
Spending her entire twenty-four years hiding in the background and perfecting her status of wallflower, Anna Zimmerman arrives at the astounding conclusion it’s time for a change. Tired of living life in the shadows, she steps into the light, unprepared to handle the attention of the charming, handsome cowboy who works across the street.
Jake Chandler likes his women petite, blond and outgoing. When a chance encounter brings him nose to nose with the tall librarian across the street, he discovers his type of girl expanding to include statuesque brunettes.
"Jake and Anna are my favorites out of the whole series and I loved reading how they grew into becoming the wonderful loving adults they were meant to be. All the returning characters helped to make this a very loving, funny and romantic book I will be reading again."~Amazon reviewer
"This was such a special story because of the love that overcame the problems of real life."~Amazon reviewer
"Loved the purity of this romance. The right woman is what it took to tame a wild and immature cowboy."~Amazon reviewer
CIR: What inspired this series?
HATFIELD: Heart of Clay was the first book I wrote. I'd always wanted to write a novel, and after reading a truly awful book I picked up at the bookstore, I decided to see if I could do better. I fell in love with both writing clean romances and the characters in this story, so I wrote two more books in the series.
CIR: What was the writing process like for your book?
HATFIELD: Painful! Seriously, though, I had no idea what I was doing and read everything I could find on how to write a book. I applied what made sense and went from there. It truly was a huge learning experience for me.
CIR: What do you hope your readers will get out of this series?
HATFIELD: Never give up. I think that is the underlying message in all three books in this series. The relationships in the three stories are all at different places, but the message of never giving up on something or someone you love is definitely at the center of the series.
CIR: What themes do you address in this series?
HATFIELD: Tenacity is a big part of the theme in all three books! Hope and true love are entwined as well.
CIR: Is there more coming?
HATFIELD: I have ideas for a few more books in the series, so you never know...
