What Happened to Romance? It’s coming!

Valentine’s Day is coming, and so is my newest book! What Happened to Romance is on pre-order now and releases February 1st.

For Mallory McKay, romance is dead, and it all started with a bad breakup that landed her in an anger management course. It figures that the heartthrob she ran into coming out of her class is her new colleague at work. If things aren’t awkward enough, the two must now work together to decorate for a charity Valentine ball.

Max Collins’ life is full with a new job and a demanding recovering alcoholic mother. Despite his hectic schedule, he finds himself wanting to spend more time with Mallory. Though he shouldn’t, he’s taking it as a personal challenge to prove to her that romance is alive and well.

With Valentine’s Day approaching, love is all anyone in Romance, Oregon can think about. How can Max convince Mallory love and romance can be hers?

This is another installment in the Welcome to Romance world. It does stand alone but all the novellas set in Romance, Oregon are well worth your time and a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Two other Valentine novellas will come out on February 1st by two other authors from the Fall Into Romance box set and I’ll be talking about those very soon.

Pre-order WHAT HAPPENED TO ROMANCE? for only 99 cents until February 1st, when the price goes up.


The Start of Us Release and Review

A good friend of mine has an awesome new release I’d love to share with you all. I had the chance to read an early copy of it and I loved it. It’s a sweet contemporary romance called The Start of Us. The ebook version will be $0.99 until Thanksgiving.
When Corrie Windsor’s roommate dies in a car accident, she leaves behind her four-year-old daughter, Ella. Corrie loves the little girl and hopes to adopt her, but instead, she’ll have to stand by while Ella’s uncle steps in to take custody. If things aren’t awkward enough, there’s a chemistry between them that neither wants to acknowledge.

Preston Ford can’t imagine instant parenthood, especially considering he just chickened out of proposing to his girlfriend. However, once he meets Ella, there’s no other choice. The time he spends with her and Corrie solidifies an alliance between the three of them, a plan to give Ella the stability she needs. But reality can sometimes turn the best of plans upside down.

With more than one heart hanging in the balance, how long can their platonic teamwork really last? Romance has never been this complicated.

Franky’s Review:

I enjoyed these characters so much, Corrie falls in love with her roommate’s daughter as babysitting becomes full-time care. When her roommate dies, Corrie so wants to adopt little Ella, but the problem is, Ella has an uncle she’s never met, Preston Ford. And the sparks fly from there. The story pulled me in, wondering how these two would work out both being a part of Ella’s life, and who would get to adopt her. And Preston’s girlfriend had to be gotten rid of somehow so he could realize who he really wanted. Preston and Corrie make a great team, and the chemistry between them is nearly tangible.

Ella is a lovable, realistic four-year-old, adding an element of the unexpected and adorable to the lives of the two people she brings together.
