Coming in 2025

Welcome to Heartwood!

Located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, the small town of Heartwood is a charming and welcoming place where you'll instantly feel at home.


Fall for You: Texas Heat

Jocelyn Barnes couldn’t wait to leave Heartwood in her rearview mirror—even if it meant breaking two hearts in the process. Now, with her career on hiatus and her great-aunt in need of help as she recovers from concussion, Jo finds herself right back where she started, older but not much wiser, about to make all the same mistakes all over again.


 Carter Donahue doesn’t believe in looking back. As the chef/manager of his family’s new farm-to-table restaurant, he’s got his hands full.


With a goal of turning his legacy into a must-see, Hill Country destination, his focus is on the future. The past? He’d rather that stayed buried. The last thing he needs (or wants) is to dig up those old feelings or fall back in love with his ex—especially when she’s already got one foot out the door. Again.

One Steamy Summer: Texas Summer


Even when it’s hotter than a stolen tamale, Cash Donahue loves those Texas Summers. Between farmers markets, festivals, and town and county fairs, he’s always on the road selling produce, meat and eggs and proving that even baby brothers can do their part to save the family farm.


This year, there’s someone new on the circuit. Kayleigh St James also has something to prove. After her ex took everything in their divorce—including her job at the marketing company they’d founded and grown together. She determined to prove she can make a success out of anything—even selling peaches from her grandfather’s orchard out of the back of a rusty old truck.


Cash wants to play Sir Galahad and rescue the princess. Kayleigh wants to play Annie Oakley and prove that anything Cash can do, she can do better. And when the two of them go head to head, well…it’s gonna be one steamy summer.
