Love on Belmont: A Sweet Romance Series

A copy of 'Tea Shop for Two' leaning against a stack of copies. Tagline: She's bold. He's sweet. Add love and stir.

The Love on Belmont series follows special characters as they strive for their dreams while facing the struggles of the journey. When love inconveniently shows up, the residents of Belmont Village, a shopping district in a larger city, wind through deep, emotional moments and light-hearted laughs.


These are some of the people who live in the neighbourhoods around Belmont Village:


  • Claire, who opened Claire’s Tea Shop in the 60s when women entrepreneurs were rare
  • Richard, a real estate agent who falls cup over saucer for strong-minded, dream-oriented Claire
  • Pauline, their first daughter, who takes dreaming to new heights with her stunts as a professional sports mascot
  • Todd, a retired ballet dancer searching for a new dream
  • Tracy, mom to a teenaged son with epilepsy who’s trying to balance her dreams with those of her son
  • Mayumi, who lives with ADHD and has reached at least one dream in her life: opening her own garage


And that’s just the beginning. The characters of Love on Belmont face many of life’s difficulties, sometimes in conflict with one another, sometimes as the best of friends. But through it all, they find a way to heal.


And of course, find love.
