Celebrating Cinderella’s Royal Seduction!

Jan 31, 2020

I’m so excited that Cinderella’s Royal Seduction is finally out on all platforms!

Sopi is exhausted trying to keep her spa from the clutches of her evil stepmother when Prince Rhys Charlemaine turns up to make her feel like a princess for a night. She knows it can’t go further, but Rhys stuns her with a convenient proposal! Can she believe in this fairy tale ending, though?

I’m thrilled to say that Sopi is Canadian and her spa is modelled on Sparkling Hill in Vernon, BC (I moved it to Jasper for artistic reasons.)

Here’s a snippet of one of my favourite scenes:

Through the steam rising off the pool, she watched him unbelt and open his robe, drop it off his shoulders to catch on his bent arms. The muscled globes of his bare butt appeared as he turned and slid free of the robe, draping it over the glass half wall that formed the rail around the pool. He was sculpted like an Olympic swimmer with broad shoulders, narrow hips and muscular thighs.

He pivoted back to face her across the pool, utterly, completely, gloriously naked. A shadow of hair accented the intriguing contours that sectioned his chest and abdomen streaking out to dark nipples and arrowing down his eight-pack abs to—

He dived into the water, shallow and knife sharp, barely making a ripple.

She pushed her face into the stack of towels she held, no longer breathing as she tried to suppress her shock and abject mortification. She fought to push back a rising blush of hot embarrassment and something she didn’t even recognize.

Because she had not only seen their special guest, the prince of Verina, in a private moment. She’d seen the crown jewels.

Cover Reveal – Look What’s Coming In May!

Jan 8, 2020

Waking up to a new cover is the best way to start a day.

The Harlequin Presents cover one for A Hidden Heir to Redeem Him just arrived and I’m in love with Kiara’s gold dress! Isn’t everything about this scrumptious?

A Hidden Heir to Redeem Him is the first in my Feuding Billionaire Brothers. They’ll be out May and June of this year.

Here’s the official blurb:

She kept their child hidden…

Now the secret’s out!

Valentino Casale is outraged to find Kiara kept their daughter a secret from him for two years! Forever branded by his own illegitimacy, the hardened billionaire wants to do things differently…

Kiara could never regret the consequence of her one delicious night with Val. Even if he turned out to be every bit as coldhearted as their night was hot! Yet behind Val’s reputation is another man—revealed only in their passionate moments alone. Could she give that man a second chance?

 

Look for Val’s brother’s story Beauty and Her One-Night Baby in June.

A New Year, A New Release!

Jan 1, 2020

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2020!

I can’t believe 2019 is behind us and my 2020 releases are starting to pop like fireworks. Technically, Cinderella’s Royal Seduction won’t release until Feb 1, but you can get it today if you buy direct from Harlequin.com or Mills and Boon.

Cinderella’s Royal Seduction is very much a modern take on the classic fairy tale. Sopi is scrubbing the saunas at a struggling spa while her stepmother seems determined to run it into the ground. When Rhys shows up looking for a wife, all the eligible princesses arrive to catch his eye and win his hand. Sopi has no intention of so much as putting a toe into that race (you’ll love that joke once you’ve read the book!) Besides she’s not eligible. Rhys has to marry a princess and she has no royal blood–or does she?

Cinderella’s Royal Seduction will be on shelves soon and available on all platforms Feb 1st. Find more Buy Links here.

Dec 14, 2019

I can’t recall ever getting my UK cover before my North American one, which is why the cute little icon with all my buy links is showing my generic green one.

But I’m so thrilled with Kiara and Val I had to show you right now! How stunning is she with the gold and those jewels?

p.s. I am very excited for the release of this one. Val is one of those heroes who is just wretched and in desperate need of love. Kiara is a sensitive artist, sweet and kind and yet she stands up to him when she has to. Here’s the official blurb:

Get The Maid’s Spanish Secret for $1.99 Today

Dec 4, 2019

Great news! The Maid’s Spanish Secret is on sale for $1.99 starting today until Dec 11, 2019.

I recently saw a review for The Maid’s Spanish Secret on Goodreads that made me chuckle. It called my writing style ‘ornate.’ Some of the most common writing advice any aspiring author will hear is ‘Keep It Simple.’ I try, but I always manage to complicate things so I very much appreciate that Kay on Goodreads appreciates my curlicues and digressions:

“Collins’s Maid’s Spanish Secret is a blast, fun, funny, and ornately written. In turn, I was immersed in and moved by Rico and Poppy’s journey to their HEA. I don’t read as many HPs as I used to, but I’ll always read a Collins. And if you read one this year, make it The Maid’s Spanish Secret.”

Here’s the blurb:

“You will come to Spain. You will marry me…”
He will claim his heir…

For sweet maid Poppy Harris, her one and only passionate experience was scorching and absolutely forbidden. She shouldn’t have succumbed to Spanish aristocrat Rico Montero’s tantalizing seduction, but his touch was all consuming…and had a nine-month consequence! Poppy believes they could never be anything more. Until Rico appears on her doorstep demanding his hidden daughter—and determined to make Poppy his wife!

I hope you enjoy this intensely dramatic marriage of convenience! All your buy links are here.

Have you read the hidden Christmas Romance in On The Edge?

Dec 1, 2019

Did you know there’s a Christmas novella written into my first Blue Spruce Lodge book, On The Edge?

Glory, the heroine, is a closeted romance author who writes a romance called Blessed Winter as her romance with Rolf is unfolding. Blessed Winter is a No Room at the Inn Christmas tale complete with dramatic home birth!

Glory bases her hero on Rolf–who is old-school Romance hero Alpha. Very gruff and inaccessible, but when he gives his heart, he’s all in. I hope you enjoy it!

Buy links for On The Edge are here

 

Fun Fact: Blessed Winter is a follow up to Cruel Summer, the short story romance you get as a welcome give when you sign up for my newsletter.

Find Your Perfect Christmas Romance Here

Nov 27, 2019

Have you missed any of my holiday titles? They’re listed below with a heat rating, since you might prefer Christmas stories with no naughtiness on the page.

Wedding at Mistletoe Chalet is a sweet, light romance with no swears and only a kiss toward the end. Finn catches up with his college sweetheart, Kristen, while getting roped into carolling, decorating and planning a secret wedding at Mistletoe Chalet.

His Christmas Miracle is my favourite Christmas book that I’ve written. I had so much fun with the advent calendar of activities that Nicki uses to help Quincy bond with his four-year-old son, Atlas. There is a love scene toward the end, but I hope you’ll give this one a try. It’s very heartfelt and heartwarming.

Claiming His Christmas Wife is on the sexier side with several love scenes, but the language is all PG. I adore Imogen. She’s had such a rough go and really deserves her happily ever after.

Blame the Mistletoe has some f-bombs and a couple of very sexy scenes, but it’s light and funny while also being very emotional. Family is complicated, especially at Christmas!

3-Day Sale on Wedding at Mistletoe Chalet – Hurry!

Nov 7, 2019

Exciting news! For the next few days, Wedding at Mistletoe Chalet will drop to 99c.

This second-chance at first love is a very light, sweet romance between a pair of college sweethearts who fell apart and grew apart, but were always meant to be. Kristen thinks she’s on her own for Christmas so she takes a temporary job with Mistletoe Chalet, a family run ski lodge in the Montana Rockies. Dr. Finn is on his way home for the holidays for the first time in forever. He detours to see Kristen expecting to make amends for their long ago break up, but he’s soon conscripted into decorating, carolling, and planning a secret wedding!

When Wedding at Mistletoe Chalet came out last year, Marsha at Vine Voice said:

There is a lot going on in this story, yet at the heart of it are two people who never really let go of the love they once had and now get the chance to see if it really is the forever kind of love they both are believing in. I enjoyed everything about this story, from the merrily decorated chalet, to the snowed in atmosphere, to one adorable tween with a plan, to Kristen and Finn discovering that love can work if you give it a chance. If you’re in the mood for a very good Christmas Romance then this is one I’d happily recommend.

The 99c price drop is a limited time offer so scoop it up today!
