As you may have seen by now, I am slightly obsessed with Author Toni Shiloh and her style of writing. She simply has a lovely way of pulling you into the story and making you feel like you are completely immersed in a different world (check out this example in my book review of In Search of A Prince). I also had the marvelous pleasure of actually getting to meet her a few years ago and it cemented my love of all things Toni Shiloh. She was down to earth and was so kind and thoughtful to those around her. I hope I get to see her again someday.

Author Toni Shiloh’s Books and Series Order
Her books are listed from early works to her most current books. I hope you enjoy her stories as much as I have <3.
Maple Run Series
This series was and is one of my favorites by Toni Shiloh, maybe because it was the first one? Regardless it still makes me smile every time I think about it. It is a four-book series:
Buying Love (Book 1)
Will money ruin everything?
Nina Warrenton is ready for the next step in her life plan—marriage. Only no one has proposed. Taking matters into her hand, she places an ad in the newspaper hoping to entice a willing stranger. But when she begins to fall for the small-town chef, she realizes how much she wants him to love her and not her money.
Dwight Williams needs fast cash to save the family restaurant. When he sees Nina’s monetary offer for a husband, he goes for it. He’s determined to save the legacy his dad left him, but can he let it go to prove his love for her?
Can Nina and Dwight find true love, once money has entered the equation?
Freedom Lake Series
Returning Home – Book 1
Jo Ellen Baker is shocked to find out that the boy who teased her mercilessly throughout high school, has returned to their hometown of Freedom Lake, and he’s missing a leg. When his mother asks her to renovate their carriage house to give him a place to gain his independence back, she wants to say no. But one look at him brings a rush of forgotten feelings.
Evan Carter can’t believe he has to return home and live with his parents. Every hope and dream he ever had dissipated in a car crash that cost him his leg. Stuck in a wheelchair, he’s forced to reexamine his relationship with God and the local carpenter, Jo Ellen Baker.
Will renovating his home open the door for a mended relationship, or are some wounds too deep to heal from?
Faith and Fortune Series
This series was so fascinating to me. It follows three friends who are fortunate to be pretty famous each in their own right and all share a house in New York City. There’s a bit of fake relationship, falling for the brother’s best friend, and second chances that are the perfect distraction to get lost in. They recently got new covers too!
The Trouble With Love – Book 1
I, Holiday Brown, have it all. A platinum record. Multi-million dollar home in Manhattan that I share with my two best friends. Life is looking fantastic until my roommate’s brother decides to bunk in our guestroom while his house gets renovated.
W. Emmett Bell has always been the bane of my existence. He’s annoying, stubborn, a know it all, and just might be the most gorgeous man I’ve ever laid eyes on. But I refuse to fall for him.
But when his sister’s threatened by a stalker, dynamics change. His unwavering faith isn’t quite as self-righteous as I’d always thought, and maybe he has a good side I’ve overlooked all these years. Or maybe it’s all too much trouble.
The Lewis Family Series (Or as I call is Toni Shiloh’s Christmas Era) are the perfect books for the holiday season as they amplify the reason for the most wonderful time of the year!
You Make It Feel Like Christmas (Book 1 featuring Starr Lewis) is one of my favorite books by Toni Shiloh so far:
As if going home for the holidays jobless and single wasn’t bad enough, she’s dragged into a holiday season full of activities leading up to her sister’s uber-romantic Christmas Eve wedding–to Starr’s ex-boyfriend. But when her brother’s best friend, Waylon Emmerson, attends their family Thanksgiving, she starts to wonder if maybe coming home for Christmas isn’t so bad after all.
As Starr finds the perfect distraction in helping Waylon make over his late mother’s Christmas shop, the most wonderful time of the year works its magic and the spark between them grows. But with the holidays fast approaching, Starr must decide what she wants out of life after the gifts are unwrapped and the ornaments are put away–to go back to New York City or to open her heart to a love that will last beyond Christmas Day?

Distraught by all the secrets her mother kept, Brielle is further left spinning when the Ọlọrọ Ilé Royal Council brings up an old edict that states she must marry before her coronation, or the crown will pass to another.

But when she discovers that Ekon Diallo–the man who betrayed her best friend–will be her business consultant, the battle between her desires and reality begins.
Ekon Diallo has lost everything: his princely title, his material possessions, his friends, and the respect of his fellow Ọlọrans. To pay for his actions against Ọlọrọ Ilé, he’s forced to assist the charismatic Iris Blakely–but he can’t allow his heart to distract him from regaining his status.
Though they come from vastly different worlds, Iris and Ekon are both determined to reach their goals, and the only way to do that is to work together–if they can just keep their hearts from getting in the way . . .
