I’m a romance writer living in the bowels of Silicon Valley where I occasionally spot a pig and other interesting farm animals walking down my residential street. We’re a good mix of rural and suburbia in my neck of the woods.

If this is your first time here, welcome! Please note, if you sign up for my newsletter (on the left of this page) you will receive a free novella. Anywhere with You is part of the Starlight Hill series but can also be read as a stand-alone.

I write humor, heat, and heart featuring sexy every day Alpha heroes and the strong women who love them.

I love hearing from readers.




He needs a break. She needs a date.

What do a washed-up L.A. cop and a celebrity hair stylist have in common? Christmas magic.

Then she meets…Santa Claus.

Jack Cooper is tired of the big city. He needs a break from the streets of L.A. But when he stops a deadbeat from breaking and entering, he’s simply trying to do a good deed. But now he has a hot but crazy blonde asking him to be her date to a destination wedding.

But if Jack is going to help, they’re going to do it his way.

It was more than just a love story, it was more than just a tribute to all the military spouses, and what they sacrifice, it was a story about love, life, and growth, living to your full potential, recognizing the dangers of mistakes, but still embracing this thing called living. It is a story, that is so easy to fall in love with, the town, the characters, and the Italian food
~ Five Spoons, BooksandSpoons blog

I enjoyed the forays into the past by Sophia – that helps understand her feelings towards Riley. Ms. Bell’s writing style was fun and easy to read. I was so caught up with this one that I didn’t put it down until it was done. Second chance romances are not always my favorite but Ms. Bell certainly changed my mind with this one – I highly recommend it and look forward to reading more by her. ~ Cat’s Reviews

Really a special story and one that deserves to be read. I wish there were recipes included for some of the food that was made in the restaurant because it sounded amazing!!!!!! ~ Southern Yankee Book Reviews


“What begins as a very sweet ‘friendship into love’ story
romps on towards a passionate romantic connection, and Bell’s prose is
easy to read, but hard to stop turning pages. Romance fans will find all
the usual meet-cutes and secluded moments that they know and love
from the genre, mingled with an original emotional narrative on Scott’s
part.” ~ Readers Favorite Book Reviews, 5 Stars

I found myself engrossed in this book, and I would definitely recommend reading it. ” ~ 5 Stars, Readers Favorite Book Reviews

“I have not enjoyed a romance as much as this  one in such a long time.   Somebody Like You by Heatherly Bell has it all.  From the opening scene to the to the wonderful “payoff” at the end and all the fun stuff in between, I was hooked.  It’s a fresh, enjoyable read that sucks you in and keeps you turning the pages.” ~ BlogLor * Love & Laughter * LorWrite, a WordPress blog
