About More Than Cookies:
“I don’t usually trust my heart, but I know it’s not lying to me about you.”
Sage Stannard is grumpy. Having just attended her cousin’s wedding in California, she’s at her limit for watching happy couples stare dreamily at one another. She’s never had anything but quick romps back home in Vermont that always turn out to be mistakes. Big ones. Maybe moving out of her mother’s house and taking a stab at online dating will add a little excitement to this caterer’s stale life. Maybe it’ll bring more disappointment. Who knows?
Chainsaw artist Orion Finley is on a mission to get his daughter, Myah, back from his ruthless ex-wife. Only trouble is his ex-wife is a crafty lawyer with connections—ones that give her the upper hand. She even managed to get custody of his dog, Ranger, just to drive the stake deeper into his heart. His father always told him women were poison, especially the pretty ones. Why hadn’t he listened? Well, he was listening now.
When Sage and Orion meet over a bloody couch, the gates are opened to a path neither of them is quite ready to travel on. Will they stumble? Will it be all uphill? Or will the end of the path be just the new beginning they need?

Sage hasn’t had the best experience when it comes to romance, but she hasn’t given up hope yet. What she hadn’t expected was that it wouldn’t be a match from a dating site but an injured interloper at the house she was thinking of purchasing that would catch her interest.
Orion’s life hasn’t turned out the way he planned but the biggest disappointment was losing custody of his daughter. His only concern is regaining custody of her but an injury and a chance encounter with Sage might convince him that love and romance didn’t have to end when his marriage did.
Orion and Sage are both going through a difficult time in their life and find what they were looking for in each other. This is a heartwarming story complete with intrigue, romance and family.

About the Author:
Christine DePetrillo can often be found hugging trees, conversing with dragonflies, and walking barefoot through sun-warmed soil. She finds joy in listening to the wind, bathing in moonlight, and breathing in the fragrances of things that bloom. If she had her way, the sky would be the only roof over her head.
Her love of nature seeps into every story she tells. As does her obsession with bearded mountain men who build, often smell like sawdust, and know how to cherish the women they love. Today she writes tales meant to make you laugh, maybe make you sweat, and definitely make you believe in the power of love.
She lives in Vermont with her husband and many woodland creatures who defend her fiercely from all evils.
