Growing Flowers

Growing Flowers

She needs a baby daddy.
He needs a place to stay.

Through four novels and numerous bonus chapters, our favorite couple and children learn to cope with an old flame, a stalker, wrenching loss, and simply growing up. Ten years pass from beginning to end, but the time flies by as everyone gets older and, hopefully, a little wiser in this loving and rollicking family unit.

Marguerite “Daisy” White

The pretty party girl

Daisy is a happily promiscuous college girl who finds a classic solution, a marriage of convenience to a total stranger, to get out of a classic problem, an unwanted pregnancy. But what happens when her new husband turns out to be a complete and total hottie, the most swoon-worthy man she’s ever seen in her life? And their apartment is so small that there’s only room for one bed? And not only that, but he turns out also to be one of the kindest, most caring people she’s ever met? How is she supposed to not fall hopelessly in love with him?

Pietro “Pete” Santangelo

The Romantic Music Student

Pete is an exchange student from Italy whose housing falls through at the last minute and needs a place to live, pronto. He agrees to marry the beautiful Daisy so he can live with her in an apartment owned by her cranky granny, who is very old-fashioned and believes that only husbands and wives should live under the same roof. He thinks he can keep his heart protected, but realizes almost immediately that nothing is safe from the beautiful and fun-loving redhead he has to share a bed with for the next year.

Cliona “Granny” White

The Cranky Grandma

She has salt and pepper hair, and a piss and vinegar personality to match. She’s not one for sentiment or lots of words, but she loves her granddaughter, and is perfectly able to keep an eye on her and her new husband in their tiny, rooftop apartment from her own apartment on the ground floor. She doesn’t say much, but she sees everything, like a taciturn old terrier….

Ellen Spencer

The Cool Best Friend

Ellen has known Daisy since they were children, and loves her like a sister. She’s fiercely protective of her beautiful and gentle friend, and she can tell almost immediately that more is going on between Daisy and Pete than a marriage of convenience. She’s willing to keep her mouth shut, as long as it seems like Daisy isn’t going to get hurt.
