Missouri Vaun’s latest book with Bold Strokes Books, Love at Cooper’s Creek, is a lesbian romance set in a small town in the Deep South.
Successful but suffocated by the demands of her corporate career, Shaw Daily walks out on it all. She returns to her grandparents’ rural property in Cooper’s Creek, North Carolina, with a plan to hide out and reboot her life to be simple and stress free. But escapism eludes her when her attentions are captured by small-town beauty Kate Elkins.
Kate has spent almost her entire life in Cooper’s Creek. For Kate, the bonds of small-town life are a source of strength and comfort. When her aging mother weakens, Kate takes a leave from teaching to care for her. Romance is the last thing on her mind when she bumps into her unrequited teen crush Shaw Dailey just back from California. Long-buried feelings resurface for Kate, but all Shaw sees is a beautiful woman saddled with the responsibilities she is finally free from.
Reviews for Love at Cooper’s Creek
“What a beautiful love story which honestly I wasn’t ready to finish. Kate and Shaw’s chemistry was instantaneous and as the reader I could feel it radiating off the page. I normally favour one main protagonist over another but in this novel I loved them both as a couple, as friends and as lovers. They definitely had the ‘soul mate’ quality to their love… A fantastic novel that would be a great start to an awesome series. 5 stars” – Rachael Forrester at Bold Strokes Books

The chemistry between the two main characters will keep your attention and pages turning. My students will really enjoy reading this book and discussing the beautiful romance between Shaw and Kate. I highly recommend. Very nice read.” – Kris Johnson at Bold Strokes Books
“Missouri Vaun is quickly becoming an author at the top of my “to be read” list. This was a sweet romance with couple of sides of family drama. Interesting enough plot with great main characters. Excellent chemistry, sweet romance and hot sex scenes….what more can I say?” – Stephanie Capps at Bold Strokes Books
