Hot Off The Press

Hot Cover Alert!

Mar 15, 2023

I just woke up to the cover for Awakened on Her Royal Wedding Night and 👀.

I was already in love with this book for all the fun I had writing it.

After finishing the marathon that was the Four Weddings and a Baby quartet, with its interwoven plots, I wanted to write something unconnected and very Presents-y and over-the-top.

Strap in for a daring escape that has Claudine washing up at Felipe’s feet. She’s a beauty pageant contestant. He’s a prince with an evil twin. There’s a duel.

There’s also a castle with a secret passage, royal intrigues, scandals and glamour and oh yes, plenty of heat. I mean look at that cover.

Awakened on Her Royal Wedding Night comes out July 25th.

Book Three in my Four Weddings and a Baby quartet is one of my favorite books ever and I had the loveliest response from a reader on Facebook. She said:

“I loved how they love each other…I purposely didn’t read it in one sitting cause I didn’t want it to end…” 

Yeah, I’m over here crying. What do you think?

Here’s the official 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?

My first *starred* review from PW!

Feb 9, 2023

“…a delightful twist on the mail order bride trope…”

I’m super excited! The Prospector’s Only Prospect was not only reviewed by Publisher’s Weekly, they gave it a *star*. They said:

“Collins mines the setting for both danger and humor, providing the perfect backdrop to this sensuous romance. Readers won’t want to put this down.”

I’ve also had some super nice early reviews on Netgalley, including one member who said:

“I have not cried this hard over a book in a long time but Dani Collins took my heart, grew it 12 sizes, crushed it, ran it through a sluice box, panned the gold out of it, and then reformed it into a bigger, more beautiful heart.”

I need to send a big thank you to the whole team at Entangled Publishing for all their hard work in helping me make this book the very best it could be.

Here’s the whole review: Publisher’s Weekly.

Ways to Ruin a Royal Reputation – $1.99 for a limited time!

Feb 6, 2023

Happy (early) Valentine’s Day!

From Feb 6-15th, Ways to Ruin a Royal Reputation is $1.99 on all platforms.

Ways to Ruin a Royal Reputation was a fun project for me. It’s the first book in Signed, Sealed…Seduced, a multi-author trilogy written with Clare Connelly and Tara Pammi. Three best friends from boarding school start London Connection, an up and coming PR agency serving an exclusive clientele.

When Amy gets the call from King Luca, he asks for the last things she expects:

“Ruin me.”

And she’ll enjoy every delicious second!

The king of Vallia never wanted to ascend to the throne. But in order to abdicate, Luca needs a good, old-fashioned disgrace. That’s where powerhouse PR pro Amy Miller comes in! Amy’s revived the career of many a star. She can certainly torpedo that of a reluctant royal.

But when instant attraction ignites with Luca, Amy’s soon starring in the scandal. And the fire burning between them is anything but fake news. But will this explosive flame be extinguished by what’s hidden in Amy’s past?

Weeks later, Oriel gets two life-changing surprises. First, the truth about her birth mother. Second, she’s pregnant with Vijay’s child! He demands marriage, but can she really promise to honor and cherish him when, until now, all they’ve shared is one extraordinary encounter?

Blurb Reveal for The Prospector’s Only Prospect!

Jan 9, 2023

Ordering a bride was supposed to be easy…

I’m so thrilled to share the full, official blurb for The Prospector’s Only Prospect, along with the cover flat for the print version, which is ever so pretty.

After eight days in a cramped stagecoach, divorcée Marigold Davis already regrets her decision to come to Denver City to marry. She certainly didn’t realize she’d signed up for mosquitos, mud, and scores of rough men eyeing her like a hot meal on a cold day. But with her life in Kansas all but incinerated, Marigold needs a husband. Even if she’s not the bride that gold prospector Virgil Gardner is expecting…

Virgil Gardner has a reputation as a grumpy hard-ass, and he’s fine with it. He’s also no fool – this is not the woman he agreed to marry. It takes a tough-as-nails woman to survive the harshness of a Rocky Mountain gold claim, and this whiskey-eyed, gentle beauty is certainly not the type. Now it’s just a matter of how quickly she’ll quit, so he can find a wife who will stick. Someone who can care for the only thing he values even more than gold–his children.

But Marigold isn’t about to give in. Cramped in a one room shack. Berry picking turned into a bear escape. Or, cooking for an entire crew of bottomless pits. She’s got more grit than most. And just when Virgil starts to realize his replacement bride might be the treasure he’s been looking for, an unannounced guest arrives… to change everything.

I’m very excited for you to read The Prospector’s Only Prospect which has lots of my favorite ingredients: a grumpy hero, a cheeky heroine, nature and children and interfering secondary characters. Also a slow-burn romance that gets hot, hot, hot and a sigh-worthy ending.

The Prospector’s Only Prospect releases March 28th.
