Apple Readers! On The Edge is Free!

Nov 25, 2020

While you’re scoping out your Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, be sure to pop onto Apple Books and claim your FREE copy of On The Edge.

I feel like that’s all you need to hear, but if you need more convincing, this book is a two-in-one. Glory, the heroine, is busy writing Blessed Winter, a warm and sexy Christmas romance that plays out amid her passionate and very sexy romance with Rolf.

Rolf is one of my favorite heroes. He’s a complete grump–frankly so is Glory half the time–but they’re actually perfect for one another if they would only get out of their own way. Both Rolf and Glory wind up in the Montana Rockies, trying to resurrect a ski hill and lodge with much misadverturing in the process. There’s a doddering Dad, a pain-in-the-behind brother, and a stray mutt based on a real rescue–Murphy.

Here’s the blurb:

The champion meets his match….

When Glory Cormer’s father introduces her to ‘their’ new business partner, she’s appalled. Viking-like Rolf Johansson exudes the same alpha-intimidation that jocks used to torment her through high school. After nursing her mother the last several years, she’s trying to break out of her shell and secretly pursue a writing career, but Rolf insists she go through with the rotten deal her father struck with his brother to renovate an old chalet.

Rolf envisions this mountain as a world-class resort for elite athletes and other jet setters. As a downhill champion and owner of a world-renowned sports equipment empire, he knows what it takes to get what he wants. Nothing will stop him, especially not a hotheaded wallflower who turns the ice in his veins to lava.

Pssst….
Remember to get the rest of the trilogy while you’re there.

After Rolf and Glory find happily ever after, Nate and Ilke come together in From The Top. There’s a fun subplot with Glory’s dad Marvin and Rolf’s stepmother Vivian finding late-in-life love, too!

Then, just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Rolf’s younger brother, Trigg, learns he has a twelve-year-old daughter.

Wren, has been raising Skye all by herself and frankly, that girl is a handful. It’s time for Trigg to get involved.

He is very soon In Too Deep, but this wraps up this gorgeous trilogy in a wonderful, misty-eyed bow.

Christmas Comes Early! His Christmas Miracle is Free for a limited time!

Oct 19, 2020

Free for a very limited time!

His Christmas Miracle is a mostly sweet, little bit sexy Christmas-themed romance with a grumpy hero, a sunshine-y heroine, and an adorable four-year-old named Atlas.

Quincy didn’t even know he was a father until he is given custody of his son right before Christmas. Nikki can see he needs help bonding with his son, so she works up an Advent calendar that works a miracle.

If you love small town Christmas, a teensy bit of heart-wrench and a giant wonderful romance, you’ll love this story! Did I mention it’s free? (But again, act fast!! Only for a couple of days)

Fun fact: His Christmas Miracle is book five (kind of six) in my Love in Montana series. If you like to read in order, start with Hometown Hero here.

*Small annoying disclaimer: at the time of scheduling this post, Barnes and Noble had not yet discounted this book. Sometimes this happens. It is highly frustrating for all concerned. Hopefully it’s working for you now.

Which cover do you like best?

Oct 3, 2020

I just saw the UK cover for What the Greek’s Wife Needs and I honestly can’t decide which cover I like best.

The Presents cover is so passionate, but the Mills and Boon one is so deliciously moody. And the blues are so pretty, aren’t they? Which is your favorite?

In What the Greek’s Wife Needs, Tanja needs her estranged husband, Leon, to rescue her–and help her adopt a baby. But then she wants a divorce. Or does she?

An Sneak Peek at the Innocent in the Sheikh’s Palace

Oct 1, 2020

A heroine with a Happiness List discovers the baby she is carrying is the future king of Baaqi. And that baby’s uncle thinks that’s a perfectly good reason to marry her and whisk her off to his palace.

Hannah has never felt graceful, beautiful, or regal, but she’s soon a new mom and a monarch. She’s not abiding by any of Akin’s rules and he doesn’t know what to do with her. Kiss her? What if he catches happiness from her?

Here’s the official blurb:

His desert vow…

To crown the virgin’s baby!

Having failed to find Mr. Right, plain librarian Hannah Meeks decided to start the family she’s desperately wanted on her own. Only to discover that her miracle baby is actually the heir to the throne of Baaqi…

Sheikh Akin Sarraf was the unwanted spare. Now, finding out his late brother had unknowingly fathered a child, Akin’s duty is to bring Hannah to his palace and make her his wife! Marrying for love was always out of the question. But Hannah’s independent spirit is exasperating…until it’s intoxicating…

If you want to meet Hannah and Akin today, you can get early copies from Harlequin.com and Mills and Boon UK.

Print books will be on shelves in a couple of weeks and digital copies will release on all platforms November 1st. All your pre-order links are here:

Manga Baby Swap is Complete!

Sep 2, 2020

I’m thrilled to see the second half of my Wrong Heirs duet has arrived in Manga! The Consequence He Must Claim came out yesterday.

An unexpected night of passion with her boss shakes Sorcha’s world, but was it all just a fantasy?
“Please let me see him!”

When Cesar Montero is taken to the hospital after a car crash, Sorcha, his personal secretary, isn’t allowed to see him on the grounds that she is not a relative.

Sorcha has long had feelings for Cesar, but right after they spent the night together, they were met with misfortune. On top of that, Cesar’s fiancée shows up and tries to pay her off, an apology to his “one last fling.”

Sorcha despairs that their night of passion was just that, a fling that meant nothing to Cesar… She vows to never to see him again!

Now you can enjoy both The Marriage He Must Keep and The Consequence He Must Claim with the gorgeous illustrations by Kazuna Uchida and Eri Kawamura.

My baby swap duet has been one of my most popular miniseries ever.

Check out this *gorgeous* cover for my next Greek

Aug 26, 2020

How sexy is this stunning cover for What the Greek’s Wife Needs?

I can’t wait for you to read this marriage reunion with a secret baby (with a small twist.)

I had the idea that Tanja would be caught in a fictional country taken over by extremists. She can’t leave without a male relative to escort her, forcing her estranged husband, Leon, to come get her. In the middle of a tense scene where he’s trying to extract her, she says, “Our baby is coming, too…”

If you’re a fan of my Canadian heroines, you’ll definitely want to check this out.

She wants to be his wife…

…but only on paper!

Tanja’s whirlwind marriage to Leon Patrakis is over. She hasn’t seen him since he returned to Greece five years ago. Yet, to keep the baby daughter she’s adopting, Tanja has a last request: she and Leon stay wed…in name only.

Leaving behind his exhilarating connection to Tanja wasn’t easy for Leon. Yet, to shield her from his family’s notorious reputation, he had no choice. He can’t reject Tanja’s request to make her dreams of a family come true. But ignoring their still-smoldering electricity? Impossible!


What the Greek’s Wife Needs comes out January 1st, but you can

I want to send a huge thank you to Alyssa and the Australian Romance Readers Association for creating such a robust, well-planned, fun event. They recorded dozens of panels, interviews and sessions for your viewing pleasure.
