The print version of Consequence of His Revenge releases today. It’s your classic romantic equation of:
Sicilian + Virgin + Hot Tub = Secret Baby
There’s also some revenge and subterfuge to spice it up and a darling Sicilian grandmother for sweetness. Here’s the official book description:
In debt to the billionaire…
Infamous Sicilian Dante Gallo takes great delight in firing Cami Fagan as punishment for her father’s theft. What he doesn’t expect is to desire her so intensely he can’t resist seducing her, and Dante soon discovers how deliciously innocent Cami really is!
And bound forever by his vengeance!
But what started as revenge could bind them forever when their inconvenient passion has long-lasting consequences…
Order it from Amazon today or look for it on the shelves of your favourite retailer.
Fun fact: If you’re a fan of Vito from Bought By Her Italian Boss, he makes an appearance. You’ll see even more of him and Gwyn in my December Presents, as yet untitled. Sign up for site news or my newsletter to be notified about that one.
Happy First Day of Spring!

Not In Her Wildest Dreams, Book One of my Secrets Dreams Duet has been marked down to 99c until the end of April.
Sterling and Paige are one of my favourite couples. He’s the town Golden Boy, she’s a No Good Fogarty, they had one magical kiss fifteen years ago and nothing has gone right since. Now they’re forced to work together at the factory owned by their fathers. They clash, hard.
But they were meant for each other. Their journey as they figure that out is full of town scandals and family secrets, sexy times, laughter, and angst. I hope you enjoy it.
Be sure to pick up the second half of this duet, Only In His Sweetest Dreams, where Paige’s brother finds his soul mate in Mercedes. They’re a very sweet, funny, and sexy couple. I don’t have a lot of heroes who are broke, but L.C. is pretty much down to the lint in his pockets. He knows how to fix just about anything, including Mercedes’ heart.
If you’re a fan of my Montana Born books, especially the ones with kids, you’ll love the kids in this one. This story is set in a senior’s complex and I hope you fall for them, too.

Did you know that Consequence of His Revenge was inspired by the Vancouver 2010 Olympics?
In fact, the initial spark of this story came to me in the early 2000’s, when it was announced the Olympics were coming to Vancouver. I thought Whistler would make a beautiful setting for a Presents and knew right away my heroine was a downhill racer who’d been injured. The hero blames her for her father stealing from him, she’s trying to pay him back, he makes her his mistress, then they learn her father was innocent. (Don’t we all love that twist?)
Read my author notes for more on how the story was fleshed out, but the upshot is, this book was nearly twenty years in the making! It’s pretty special to me.
It comes out on all platforms April 1st, but if you want to download now, find it on Harlequin or Mills & Boon UK today.

Yay! From The Top, Book Two in my Blue Spruce Lodge series, launches on all digital platforms today!
I am thrilled–thrilled I tell you–by the advance reviews on Netgalley for this one:
“The characterizations are fully rounded. Ilke is more than a blonde bombshell who can ski. Nate is more than a quiet, hunky contractor… These characters seem real and I found myself caring about them.”
“I loved the way Ms. Collins ended this book. It was satisfying and unexpected… I’m really looking forward to Book Three… I can’t wait to see what Trigg will face.”
Nate and Ilke are pretty adorable, once you get past Ilke’s frosty shell. Start reading their story here or find buy links here.
I am hard at work on Book Three, as yet untitled. Trigg’s got himself a world of trouble, as you’ll read in From The Top. Provided the writing goes well, I hope to have him in your hands by late summer.

I recently had the delightful opportunity to chat with Kini Allen at Romance Romp on FNP Podcasts.
She is lovely. It was like visiting with a long-time friend who enjoys reading romance as much as I do.
We talk about how I got my start, what we both like to read, how grumpy Rolf is in On The Edge, what to expect in From The Top, and how strongly we feel about a proper Happily Ever After.
You can listen or download here:
*If you’re looking for the link Kini mentions about my post on Tule’s blog, you can read how Michael Phelps inspired Rolf here.

Did you know that On the Edge is available in print if you order it from Amazon?
I’ve been so thrilled with some of the comments left on Goodreads by fans of Rolf and Glory:
“This was one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. The hero was really unlikeable, but grew through his relationship with the heroine. She was also a quirky, complex character.”
“What an unique book! I really enjoyed reading the story inside the story.”
“Dani Collins has written a fascinating love story combined with an equally captivating novella. I liked that she’s included the story Glory is writing and gladly read this extra treat… On the Edge isn’t a standard sweet true love story, it’s different and there’s plenty of tension. I really liked this sexy and sharp book.”
If you enjoy my Presents and those brooding alpha-males, I hope you’ll give Rolf a try. Start reading here.
On the Edge is available on all digital platforms, but if you prefer print, order your copy here:

Exciting news! The Bachelor’s Baby, book three in my Love in Montana series, is free for a limited time.
I love this book. Linc is so mad when Meg cons him into going on the block at a Valentine’s Day bachelor auction. She feels bad and bids on him, only to wind up in a bidding war with him as he tries to keep her from winning him.
They have incredible chemistry, but Linc isn’t the most sensitive man and Meg tries to be tough, but underneath, she’s very vulnerable. As you can guess from the title, they wind up with a lot of big decisions to make.
If you like to read in order, you can find all of the books listed here: Love in Montana series.

I just received my gorgeous cover for From The Top, Book Two in my Blue Spruce Lodge series. What do you think? Beautiful, right?
I’m still on vacation in Hawaii and still have to write the Author Notes for this one, but I’ll warn you now, it may cause a few tears. From The Top opens when Ilke discovers she’s pregnant with Nate’s baby. She wants to keep it and returns to Blue Spruce Lodge to tell Nate, but she doesn’t know how to make a family work against the alpine racing career she has worked her whole life to achieve. Nate’s a single dad, but his life is already very complicated. Both are unprepared and on the defence, not looking for a relationship. They have a lot to dig through before they find the happily ever after they both deeply deserve.
If you want to read the first two chapters, you’ll find them here.
All the books in the Blue Spruce Lodge series series can be read as stand-alones, but you might want to read On The Edge first as Rolf and Glory show up here along with everyone else (including Murphy, the dog!)
From The Top will be available on all platforms, but only a few of the buy links are up. If you want to be notified when it comes out, be sure to subscribe to my newsletter.
Now set to gazing on this cover…

I’m still on vacation, but some fun news for my UK readers hit my in-box and I had to share.
The Secret Beneath the Veil is on sale for 99p on Amazon UK until mid-Feb. I believe it’s already marked down, but I’m not in the UK so Amazon won’t let me see the price. Please double-check the cost before you buy.
Vivi is one of my favourite heroines and Mikolas breaks my heart. This one has a very dramatic opening that you can read here. Enjoy!
