Hot Off The Press

My holiday short is ready to be read

Dec 13, 2023

I’m so excited that my free read, ‘Tis the Season for Seduction, is now available at Harlequin.com and on the Mills & Boon UK 12 days of Romance page.

This is your classic one-night hook-up that turns into “Oh no, he’s my new boss” horror.

The story is so short, however, we have to fast-forward to where Natasha is quitting because she can’t face starting the new year still pining for Silvio.

Silvio is on his way to a family Christmas in Italy, but once Natasha says goodbye, they have one last chance to possibly make it work. Then he leaves her anyway. (Feel free to hate him.)

Read ‘Tis the Season for Seduction online here or download the Holiday Kisses Collection here.

still searching for the holiday spirit?

Dec 8, 2023

Are you in the mood for a holiday-themed romance, but feel overwhelmed by choice? I’m here to narrow it down for you:

Do you want a sweet, low-drama, no naughtiness reunion romance where the hero broke the heroine’s heart but never forgot her? And is actually still very much in love with her?

Try Wedding at Mistletoe Chalet.

Would you prefer something that dips into a small-town series? Because there are two Christmas romances set in Marietta:

Blame the Mistletoe sees Liz spending Christmas alone, dog-sitting her ex-mother-in-law’s pup. She’s feeling lonely and sorry for herself when she bumps into Blake, who she knows through her ex’s family. He’s also a single-parent, his son is also away, so they get into shenanigans that turn *very* naughty and complicated once the kids come home.

This has one of my favorite ‘busted’ scenes ever.

If you want all the Christmas feels, pick up His Christmas Miracle.

Niki signs on as nanny for Quincy, who just learned he has a four-year-old son. He’s trying to bond with his boy so Niki helps him by making an Advent calendar of daily activities. Slowly, Quincy opens his heart and lets in not just his son, but Niki, too. There’s a side romance with his father and an old-flame that is the angel on the tree.

This one has all the Christmas trimmings and will definitely tug on your heartstrings, then make them sing.

If you have a taste for high-drama and betrayal and loads of sexual tension, you’ll want to check out Claiming His Christmas Wife.

Imogen is one of my favorite heroines ever. She’s feisty even when she is literally on death’s doorstep, collapsing in the snow. Travis will make you angry before you fall in love with him, but then you’ll root for these two.

I won’t spoil the bit about Imogen’s sister, but it’s pretty fun, too.

Then, guess what? It’s Happy New Year!

I freaking love One Snowbound New Year’s Night. It was challenging to write, keeping the bulk of the story happening in twenty-four hours, but the absolute longing between these two was so fun to write.

They’re spending the last night of their marriage–the eve of their divorce–figuring out what went wrong between them so prepare for some heartbreak, but some heart-mending and, yes, some make-up loving, too.

That’s a lot under the tree, isn’t it? Happy reading!

Great news! Beauty and Her One-Night Baby is a Kindle Monthly Deal! Through September, you can pick it up on Kindle for $2.99.

From irresistible beast in the bedroom…

to father of her child!

The first time Javiero Rodriguez sees CEO Scarlett Walker after their impassioned night together, she’s in labor with his baby! No matter how shocking the surprise, Javiero won’t let his son grow up in a broken home like he did.

Scarlett has worked hard for independence and she can’t accept empty vows. Yet the scars Javiero gained in a jaguar attack haven’t lessened the tycoon’s rugged appeal. Which means every day is a heated reminder of the pleasure they shared…and could share again!

Wake up to Awakened on Her Royal Wedding Night

Jul 1, 2023

Awakened on Her Royal Wedding Night releases July 25th, but you can read it today if you order direct from Harlequin.com or Mills & Boon UK.

I had so much fun with this one! After tracking four timelines and eight characters for my Four Weddings and a Baby quartet, I was ready for a standalone couple who get into all sorts of over-the-top mischief.

Claudine, a beauty pageant contestant, flees a dangerous situation by jumping overboard and washes up like a mermaid at Crown Prince Felipe’s feet. She immediately mistakes him for his evil twin and attacks him. He sorta-kinda takes her captive and persuades her to marry him. Sexy times and palace intrigue ensues with more evil twin shenanigans that end in a duel. With swords.

If you love a virgin heroine, a wounded hero, a fight for her honour and so much chemistry, you’ll love this one.

Get Awakened on Her Royal Wedding Night today from Harlequin.com or Mills & Boon UK or pre-order here for delivery Jul 25th.

Did you know June is Audiobook Awareness Month?

Jun 10, 2023

Honestly, it was news to me, too. Fortunately, my publisher was all over this one. You can get the audio version of The Prospector’s Only Prospect at 50% off if you buy from Audiobooks.com.

Here’s what Cara on Goodreads had to say:

“I’m a huge fan of this author, and while I don’t read historical romances, I did because Collins wrote it. I loved it! I loved both main characters, the children, and the men at camp. While the black moment was a doozy, it’s a toast to Collins’ writing that my heart lurched and ached until I knew Virgil was on his way back to Marigold. And his groveling? Swoon! Very well done.”

The Prospector’s Only Prospect is also available in print or digital on all platforms.

Thus, they are stunned at how thoroughly the other can rip their heart out. Here’s the blurb:

Will the billionaire finally say “I do”?

Find out in this intense marriage of convenience from USA TODAY bestselling author Dani Collins.

The proposal…
…she vowed never to accept!

Life has taught orphan Quinn Harper to trust only herself. So, whilst her secret fling with billionaire Micah Gould was her first taste of passion, it wasn’t supposed to last forever. Although it gets harder and harder to pull herself away from his bed…

The abominable actions of Micah’s father have left a permanent mark. Love isn’t in his future. Then his relationship with Quinn is suddenly exposed and, in Berlin, a new possibility presents itself. Quinn could be the convenient bride Micah needs…but can he be what she deserves?

A Convenient Ring to Claim Her is Book Three in my Four Weddings and a Baby quartet. If you like to read in order, they go like this:

Book 1: Cinderella’s Secret Baby
Book 2: Wedding Night with the Wrong Billionaire
