Romance. Mystery. Family Saga. Cops and Robbers. The "Heart Tide" Series will transport you to the 1930s with two books that you will not be able to put down! 

Author Donna Morton is pleased to release the final book of The Heart Tide Series:  Book 2, “Seeking the Shore,” released in October 2017. Book 1 is "Watching the Water," and released November, 2016.   

Julianna Sheffield is a rogue wave, one that doesn’t want to land on the shore it seems destined for.  The series opens in 1934, with the currents pushing her include an unscrupulous father determined to keep the family solvent during the Great Depression, a mother suffocated by the bubble of high society, and a greedy fiancé named Leyton, who is proving why his name rhymes with Satan.

Julianna longs to chart a different course. She dreams of a man named Jace McAllister, another rogue wave who wants to love her but fights the seas bringing them together. For this seemingly doomed couple, moving forward brings on storms of rage, moral dilemmas, and difficult personal growth.

Their love could be the kind that is impossible to live out ... or the kind from which legends are born. The outcome of their journey depends on how carefully they navigate the waters.
