Not Long Now! More Ice Cats!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you and yours had a wonderful holidays and are enjoying a good, healthy start to 2017. After a difficult and stressful six months, due to the decline and eventual passing of my wonderful, 94-yr-old father-in-law, I’m ready for a fresh year.

There is plenty of good news to tell you. First, I’m delighted that the fifth book in my New Jersey Ice Cats series will hit the shelves on February 1st.

A Perfect Strategy features retired Ice Cats‘ captain, Scott ‘Scotty’ Matthews and Sapphire Houlihan. Many of you will remember Sapphie as Issy’s best friend in A Perfect Compromise. I had such fun pitting a woman who can’t even commit to an apartment against a man who’s looking for the someone to share his new life with. Especially when they have to do battle in the boardroom, as well as the bedroom!

Is there really life after hockey?

If there’s one thing Scotty Matthews know, it’s hockey. Unfortunately, the former New Jersey Ice Cats captain isn’t proving successful at life after hockey. His wife’s left him and he’s lost his post-ice job as a media commentator. All he’s got now is a big, empty show house.

If there’s one thing Sapphire Houlihan knows, it’s that she never wants to be tied down to anyone or anything ever again. Unfortunately for her, a wonderful one-weekend distraction with Scotty turns into something much more complicated … Because he’s a guy who wants way more than one weekend.

In the meantime, I’m busy at work on the next New Jersey Ice Cats book, working title A Perfect Treat, which will hopefully hit the shelves in March 2018. I can’t say too much about it right now, except that the hero is a reader favourite!

Until next time, Happy reading!

New Book Coming and Free Short Story!

a-perfect-strategyA lot has been happening this month already!

First, I got to see the cover for my next New Jersey Ice Cats’ book, A Perfect Strategy, which is out Feb 2017. [Although it is up for pre-order at all good online retailers, in case you want to be sure to get your copy as soon as it it released :)]

I wrote a little bit about the title, blurb and my new cover, including which actors I think best suit the look of both Scotty and Sapphie on this month’s post at the Harlequin SuperRomance Authors blog. To give you a hint, think of the TV show Motive.

You’ll notice there is something different about this cover, in that doesn’t show hockey or skating. That’s because Scotty has retired, so much of this book is set behind-the-scenes at New Jersey Ice Cats’ headquarters. The idea was to give readers a chance to see what goes on in the Ice Cats’ organisation beyond games and practices. I hope you will enjoy this different kind of hockey romance, and the story of how Scotty and Sapphie survive working together!

cover-aperfectplanAlso, after the popularity of my free NJ Ice Cats’ short stories last winter, I have decided to give away some more free reads, starting this month. For a limited time only, I will put up a seasonal Ice Cats’ short story for free.

To celebrate Halloween, I have written A Perfect Plan – the story of Ice Cats’ forward, Drake Spencer, and his lovely neighbour, Gertie.

Who says zombies aren’t romantic?

Ice Cats’ forward, Drake Spencer, hopes his plan to take his nephew trick-or-treating will finally break the ice with his lovely neighbor. Unfortunately, Gertie Noakes is having a bad Halloween; she burned the cookies she promised to bake for her daughter’s class. The last person she needs to find on her doorstep is the sexy hockey player she’s been trying to steer clear of. Can a quick change of plan help Drake win Gertie over?

To download your free copy, simply go to the For Readers section and click on the cover for A Perfect Plan.

Stay tuned for another New Jersey Ice Cats’ short story, coming for Thanksgiving!

Until then, Happy Reading!
