In the Author Spotlight

I had the opportunity to submit my info for an Author Spotlight over at the Sunshine Reads blog! The original post is over there, and there are several others there besides mine, so be sure to go check it out! :)


Author Spotlight H.C. Bentley


I wear many hats…mom, wife, veteran, librarian, photographer, and now, author. My debut novel, Her Lost Love, is set for release on April 2, 2016. The story line for this book brewed in my head for the better part of a year before I ever sat down to write it.

Her Last Love is about two people, Lynn and Carter, finding their way back, in more ways than one. There are issues and struggles, as there are with any person or relationship, but it’s the paths the characters choose and the choices they make that make the journey interesting.

Right now I’m working on the second book of the Small Town Hearts Trilogy. This book focuses on Kari and her story, which I’m excited about because Kari is fun to write…she’s sassy! I’ll be bringing back characters you may have met in the first book, introducing some new ones, and seeing how things are going for Lynn and Carter.

Release Date: April 2, 2016

Her Last Love

She left for the military thinking she would have it all. The career, the man she loved, a family of her own. Then her fiancé issued an ultimatum: come home and marry him, or lose him forever.

Eight years later, Lieutenant Lynn Johnston returns to her small Kentucky hometown with a secret to keep and a desire to find peace. Her planned lifelong career had been cut short by events beyond her control. Now, she hoped that she could forge a new path, one that would heal her heart and help to put her past behind her.

Those hopes are dashed when she discovers Carter Mathis, her former fiancé, has also returned and is raising his two young sons.

Lynn must decide if she can deal with not only the old hurt feelings from the past — and Carter’s soon-to-be ex who has a vendetta against Lynn– to give Carter a second chance. A deadly collapse at the coal mines where Carter works, an accident that rocks the town, could possibly take the choice out of her hands. Does she confront her feelings and move forward, or leave the life she’s always wanted behind?

Her Last Love is now available for pre-order on my website.

I’ll also be hosting a book launch event on my Facebook page on April 2nd that I would love everyone to attend, so I hope to see you there!
