She planned on falling in love. Just not with him!

Emma Everhart’s life is going according to plan. Finish nursing school with flying colours… Check. Get a great job in the ER… Check. Marry a handsome doctor and have two babies, three years apart… Not quite yet. But with a dreamy new doctor joining the hospital staff, she’s so close she can almost taste the wedding cake. Now is not the time to let the tall, dark and flirtatious paramedic Charlie Fletcher distract her! He may be the best date and best kiss she’s ever had, but he’s definitely not part of her plan. No matter how he makes her feel…

Author picAmy Vastine has been plotting stories in her head for as long as she can remember. An eternal optimist, she studied social work, hoping to teach others how to find their silver lining. Now, she enjoys creating happily ever afters for all to read.
In September of 2012, she saw a tweet about Harlequin’s So You Think You Can Write contest. She entered, hoping for nothing more than a little feedback from some people in the business. Amazingly, The Weather Girl made it into the semi-finals, thanks to the many wonderful voters out there! The manuscript didn’t make it to the finals, but the editors over Harlequin were still interested. A few revisions later and The Weather Girl was contacted for publication with Harlequin Heartwarming – a dream come true!
Amy lives outside Chicago with her high school sweetheart-turned-husband, three fun-loving children, and their sweet but mischievous puppy dog.

Guest Post

plansHi and thanks so much for hosting me on your blog today! I am so excited for the readers to meet Emma Everhart today, the heroine from my latest Harlequin Heartwarming romance The Best Laid Plans.


Emma is the youngest of the Everhart sisters, who all star in the Chicago Sisters series. Emma is a nurse, like her mother before her. She works in the ER of St. Joseph’s Hospital in Chicago. Emma is bright and determined. She knows what she wants and always gets it.


Emma believes that she can control her own destiny by making the perfect plan and sticking to it. Her current plan is to marry a doctor and the new intern starting in the ER makes her believe everything is falling into place. The only problem is that she can’t stop the growing attraction to Charlie Fletcher, the easy-going paramedic who also happens to be her future brother-in-law’s best man.


Emma has her reasons for being afraid of changing the plans. She believes that the universe sends her signs when she’s on the wrong track. Those signs sometimes are disastrous and she doesn’t want to risk it.


Plans 2Charlie is spontaneous and is willing to try just about anything. He doesn’t follow plans, he lives life. That scares Emma a lot but also makes him even more attractive. He’s fun. For someone who works in the ER, it’s nice to be around someone as light as Charlie. He has the ability to let out his inner child and encourages Emma to find hers.


The best part is Charlie makes Emma forget about her plans. He makes her forget where she is and how much time has passed. When they’re together, there’s only the two of them. That’s an amazing kind of love. One that gives her the courage to change, to include him in some new plans!
