Welcome to Oak Glen
Nestled in mountains of beautiful North Carolina, Oak Glen has it all. Small town feel with a bustling tourist season that includes the lazy lake life in the summer and the simple sweet pleasures of skiing in the winter. In the spring, the flowers and crystal-clear rivers attract hikers and nature lovers, while the fall boasts the same with brilliant autumn colors and lazy days by a roaring fire.
It’s the perfect setting for romance. From a fleeting summer fling to a winter wonderland escape, love can be found within each blink of an eye.
As for the locals, love is something they see in those around them. Something reserved for vacationers and tourists and not something they generally experience on their own. So, when it happens, it comes at them fast and strong, like a midafternoon storm, crashing over unsuspecting individuals without warning or remorse.
Love, as everyone has come to realize, defines no boundaries, has no limits, and endures the test of time, over and over again.
So, welcome to Oak Glen. We’re sure you’ll fall in love with the town, the lake, the slopes, and who knows, maybe cupids’ arrow will strike and you’ll fall in love with more than the town and all it has to offer.
Sam, a local firefighter, was just one of the guys. She trained and worked like everyone else. But, when tragedy strikes, leaving her down for the count, she finds herself accepting the assistance of a man who sees her as more than her job. A man who sees her as a woman, desirable, stubborn, and worthy, all things she’s not used to being.
Jared has a cardinal rule in his profession. A patient, no matter who they may be, was just a patient while in his care. That was until Sam was rushed through his doors. The moment she looked him in the eye and did everything he expected her to not be able to do, he felt a need to see her as more than just another person in the emergency room.
Like a storm crashing in the middle of summer, love can come quick and fast and if you aren’t ready, you’ll be caught off guard, needing a rescue when you’d least expect.
Heather had her life all planned out. With a teaching degree and a zest for adventure, she was ready to soar. Then, in a blink of an eye, everything changed, and she was forced to re-imagine what her new normal would be. It never occurred to her that within those changes would be a man who, by all accounts, had done everything wrong and still fell right into her heart.
Paul’s life hadn’t been easy, so when a permanent job landed him and his sister in a small town, he had hoped it would be where they could finally settle down. Little did he know that being a police officer would do nothing to prepare him for the complications that came when falling for someone he never imagined.
As unexpected as a fire on a rainy day, a romance can blaze out of control as those involved trip and fumble their way towards an outcome neither anticipated.
Jess, Oak Glen's beloved local mechanic, worked tirelessly to keep the town moving. For ten long years, she fought hard to be the best, even if it meant forgetting about her needs along the way. When the universe found a way to stop her in her tracks, she found herself taking a long look at life and what she wanted most.
It was never a question to Brody that when his father retired, he'd take over as Sheriff, following a legacy that the Bradshaw's had claimed for decades. So lost in work, it took a freak accident to slam his momentum to a halt and bring to light that being a sheriff wasn't all he wanted out of life. If he didn't act soon, he'd miss his opportunity to make up all he felt he had lost.
Moments can be taken just as quickly as they can be given. Brody and Jess wasted so much on a life they thought they wanted, that when the life they deserved rushed in, they couldn’t see it until it was almost too late. Is luck truly on their side or has the moment passed, leaving them both out of time?
