The Walsh Family

Underneath It All

Matthew Walsh doesn’t have feelings, and he likes it that way.

Between breathing life into his family’s third generation Boston architecture shop, keeping the peace with his five siblings, and competing in triathlons, he doesn’t have much time for feelings.

At least that’s the case until Lauren Halsted tumbles into his life.

The feisty, beautiful blonde isn’t what he wants and definitely not what he expects. She’s so much more.

Lauren Halsted doesn’t have time and that’s turning into  a real problem for her. 

Losing focus isn’t something Lauren does with any regularity. She has checklists and to-do lists and action plans a mile long. She doesn’t have distractions and she doesn’t let anyone tell her what to do. 

When she trips down a flight of stairs and into her architect’s arms, she gives into distraction for one night. 

They weren’t looking but they found each other anyway.

The Space Between

Patrick Walsh needs a win. 

He needs a good year. He needs something to—finally—go his way. 

After their father’s slow, angry death, the Walsh family’s third-generation historic preservation architecture firm is back on its feet and Patrick finally stands at the helm.

Andy Asani is not what Patrick expected from an apprentice. First, she’s competent. Not just that, she’s  scary-brilliant. Second, she’s obsessed with historic preservation—and the only person outside of Patrick’s partners who shares his passion for crumbling buildings. And most troubling of all, he’s obsessed with her.

He doesn’t need her complicating his life but he wants her more than anything, and she might just cost him everything.

Andy Asani doesn’t want to fantasize about her boss.

She’s not that girl and she doesn’t want to turn into that girl. She’s too busy kicking ass at her coveted apprenticeship and exploring the best Boston has to offer in hot yoga and cool nightlife. She’s not going to throw any of that away because her boss won’t stop rolling up his shirtsleeves and glowering at her.

Until she throws it all away.

Their plans are about to undergo some major renovations.

Necessary Restorations

Sam Walsh is hanging on by a thread. 

He works hard at concealing his chronic illnesses and represses the lingering pains of childhood, but he’s running out of vices to distract him from his wounds. 

Nothing feels good anymore. Not his prize-winning work preserving historic homes, not the family that refuses to give up on him even when he’s at his most self-destructive. The only thing he wants is the conservatory-trained chaos he meets in a stalled elevator car.

She’s the friend he never asked for and can’t imagine living without. Then, she’s more than a friend. She’s everything.

Tiel Desai is not the same person she used to be.

She’s finally found a place for herself in Boston, leaving the rejection and disappointment of her past behind. She keeps herself too busy to think about any of it, her days spent in grad school and with neurodivergent children in her music therapy practice, her nights devoted to the city’s underground music scene.

She’s learned how to get by—until Sam Walsh crashes into her world. He up-ends everything and takes spaces in her life she didn’t know she had to give. 

They find more in each other than they ever realized they were missing. 

But finding it might not be enough to keep it—or each other.

The Cornerstone

Shannon Walsh is the boss.

She put herself back together again after enduring traumas no one should have to face, and now she’s too strong and secure to let anything slow her down.

That includes an arrogant Navy SEAL who gives her two of the wildest nights of her life. But those nights soon turn into stolen weekends and secret holidays, and then the moments begin to matter more than the hot nights.

But Shannon’s priorities are her family and their historic preservation architecture firm. She can’t—and won’t—sacrifice any piece of that for anyone.

Will Halsted has never walked away from a challenge.

After years spent in the Special Forces, his entire life is classified. Where he’s been, what he’s seen, what he’s done. There is no mission too dangerous.

Falling for a fierce, feisty redhead is the last thing he expected from a wedding weekend hookup but fighting it is like swimming against a riptide. 

Every minute is a glorious power struggle with Shannon Walsh but her life and her family are in Boston, and nothing will ever change that. 

Not even falling in love.


Sam Walsh is ready to call himself a married man.

He’s finally put an end to decades of self-destruction and turned over a healthy new leaf. But love and marriage are only the beginning—and it’s all about to get more complicated. 

Tiel Desai never planned on saying “I do” again.

Before she can blink, she’s swept up into a Walsh wedding whirlwind while also busy winning over her future in-laws, grappling with a bumpy adjustment to her new job, and keeping it together when a string of disappointments hit.

They’re trying to build a future but that means demolishing the past.

They beat back their demons and learn to love each other through every season of life, but love might not be the solution to every problem that crawls their way. 

The Spire

Rebel, runner, recluse, rich girl. 

Nine years ago, Erin Walsh ran away from everything. 






The only permanence in her life is catastrophe. 

She travels from country to country, chasing disaster, teasing fire, playing with poison. She guards against real connections, and shuns the only family she has left. 

She holds everyone—even her siblings—at a mile-long distance. It’s the only way to protect herself. 

But she can’t protect herself from Nick Acevedo. 

He’s the ice to her fire, and he’s willing to sacrifice everything to bring her home.


Two lonely hearts. 

Just once, Alex Emmerling would like to be someone’s first choice. 

She’s strong-willed and spunky, but she’s left picking up the pieces from her ex’s lies and manipulations, and daydreaming about taking a scalpel to his scrotum. 

Flying under the radar is what Riley Walsh does best. 

He’s laid-back and loyal, but he wants the most off-limits woman in his world, and nothing will ever make that a reality. 

An arrangement of mutual benefit. 

Two months, four dates. 

Five, if things go well. 

Five at the most. 

But possibly six. 

Definitely no more than six dates. 

Only the appearance of a romantic relationship is required, and they expect nothing more from their time together. There will be none of those benefits involved. 

One wild weekend. 

After waking up in bed together—very naked and even more hungover—the terms and conditions of their arrangement no longer apply. Now they’re faced with something riskier than exposing their fake relationship: letting go of the past and zipping up the future. 

Some things have to fall apart before they can be put back together.


‘Twas the weekend before Christmas, when all through the North End 

Not a Walsh had his life together, not even his friends; 

The parties were planned by the foodies with care, 

In hopes that Wes and Erin would soon find their way there; 

The men were stressing over last minute shopping lists and plans, 

While the ladies were busy with work and nesting and finding the right paella pans; 

When out in the dining room there arose such a clatter, 

The Halsted dogs sprang from their beds to see what was the matter; 

They whistled and shouted and called each other names, 

While the secrets and announcements and surprises quickly came; 

So onto another adventure they flew 

With the sleigh full of Walshes, and the Commodore too– 

As they continued arguing and clamoring around, 

Down the road an unexpected visitor came with a bound; 

But it wasn’t long until couples were all nestled snug in their beds, 

With new memories of steamy holiday nights dancing in their heads.


Fall in love. Get married. Have a baby. Live happily ever after. 

That was how it was supposed to go, right? Love and here comes the bride and babies and forever. 

But sometimes, forever has a strange way of sorting itself out. 

Like a post-baby dry spell with no end in sight—unless a naughty schoolteacher pulls on her fancy panties and takes matters into her own hands.
