A slow burning romance which is always  a treat. This wasn’t what I was expecting when I picked up my first Bell book. I loved that it was truly a small town romance and I loved she interject  with Emily’s sister Molly  story as well as Emily took her stand which was nearly a story in itself .  Breaking Emily’s Rules was  a fun sweet yet sexy  story.   Told in dual POV’s you will quickly fall in love with this small town romance that keeps on giving.







“I’m sorry I asked you out because I’m not ready for you— I mean, I’m not dating anyone. I mean—I made a mistake, asking you out.”

“And you make a lot of them, don’t you?”

Emily seemed to ignore the comment. “The reason I left so quickly on Friday had to do with my sister. Otherwise I might have stayed to see if you were okay. But I thought I should get Molly out of there. She tends to cause trouble wherever she goes.”

“She does?” Stone felt a grin coming on. “From where I stand, you caused the trouble. I wouldn’t have walked outside if it wasn’t for you.”

“And I thank you for doing that, but I didn’t ask you to.” Emily raised her chin.

That put her lips in decidedly much closer territory to his. “No, you didn’t, but you didn’t exactly stop me.” Now he moved till he was only inches away from her, and their gazes locked.



Heatherly writes humor, heart and heat with sexy Alpha every day heroes and the strong heroines who challenge them. She promises readers love, laughter, and a happily ever after.


When early onset stage fright crushed dreams of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame status, Heatherly  finished her first book in 2012 and sold in 2013. Now the people and voices that occupy her head refuse to leave. She no longer sings unless you count randomly bursting into song to annoy her children (and the dogs).


Her second passion is crime, and Heatherly maintains she could be a detective and a criminal’s worst nightmare. She watches Dateline every Friday night, and has solved many local cases, including the case of the Late Teenager and the case of the Missing Keys (recurring).


She lives in northern California with her family, including two beagles, one who can say ‘hello’ and the other who can feel a pea through several pillows.
