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.

I am beyond excited to share the news that I am a part of this wonderful collection of sweet romance novellas in the Fall Into Romance box set. My novella is a romantic comedy called Wired for Romance. Here is the beautiful cover by Perry Elisabeth Designs and a little about the story:

He can rewire her house, but he can’t do a thing about the electricity sparking between them…

Therapist Audrey Foster thought helping a difficult client through a breakup would be a challenge, but things get out of hand when the electrician she hires is the client’s horrible ex-boyfriend.

Electrician Josh Chadwick needs a big job to pay off some debt and get his mind off women. Rewiring Audrey’s house seems perfect, until he finds himself heavily distracted by everything about her, and wondering why she asks so many strange questions.

How can Audrey stay professional when she knows so many dark secrets about Josh? And how can Josh convince Audrey, he’s not a bad catch after all?

Available exclusively in the Fall Into Romance collection.

Emma’s Match is here!

austen-inspirations-graphicIt’s release day for the third Austen Inspiration, Emma’s Match, and I’ll be sharing some sneak peeks. You don’t have to have read any of the others in this series to enjoy this one. From today through October 5th, Emma is on a blog tour, featuring excerpts, reviews, interviews, and giveaways. Check out the schedule below and be sure to join in the fun.

Emma's Match Blog picEmma Wallace has a plan up her sleeve to save her struggling design business, but not a clue what do to about the man who has her heart.

Stealing a kiss from Will Knight years ago ended in an embarrassment she didn’t want to repeat. But when a popular new designer in town starts taking her clients and has eyes on Will, too, Emma decides it’s time to fight for what she wants. The perfectly irritating designer she wants to shove into a hole isn’t the only one who can be down-to-earth and likeable. After all, Emma’s never failed at anything…except walking the line between friendship and love. Crossing it again could mean losing Will’s friendship for good.

The Kindle version and paperback are available on my Amazon page today, or you can order the paperback through Barnes and Noble shortly.
