There’s no such thing as luck!

Despite his name, Ice Cats’ forward, Patrick ‘Paddy’ Mullroney, isn’t Irish and doesn’t believe in lucky charms. For sure, they won’t help him get out of his scoring slump. But when a shamrock from the ear-ring of a green-eyed beauty drops at his feet, he wonders if St. Patrick’s Day might be lucky for him after all.

Anything, but red roses!

Ice Cats’ back-up goaltender, Chaz ‘Monty’ Montgomery, fell in love with florist Kayla DeMarco the first time he met her. Unfortunately, then she was married to one of his former team-mates. Since Kayla’s divorce, Monty has waited patiently, hoping that one day she’ll notice that he’s more than just a great customer. Can he convince her with a special bouquet that Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to take a chance on a different hockey player?

Free NJ Ice Cats Short Story for Thanksgiving!

I hope you enjoyed Drake and Gertie’s trick-or-treating romance — A Perfect Plan. For those who’ve emailed/messaged me to ask if it will be available again anywhere, watch this space! I will have a new anthology of NJ Ice Cats‘ short stories for sale in the spring. That will contain all of the new short stories, starting with A Perfect Plan.

Before that, as promised, I have written another Thanksgiving-themed short story for you. A Perfect Picnic will available here, exclusively and FREE, for a limited time only. Simply click on the cover below.

*This promotion is now over *

This time, it’s Will Hardacre’s story.

No turkey, no pies and no power!

When a Thanksgiving snow storm knocks out the electricity, Ice Cats’ forward, Will Hardacre, and his sexy, but workaholic neighbour, Amelia Norris, are stranded on the 45th floor of their apartment building. A traditional festive feast is out; the best they can do is pool the sparse contents of their kitchen cupboards. Could a candlelit picnic help them discover that they have more in common than their address?

Wishing all of my friends and readers in the US, and my American friends and readers around the world a very Happy Thanksgiving!

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!

For an excerpt and buy links, check out the Books section and click on the cover for A Perfect Strategy. Or you can click on the cover on this post.

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!

Greetings from Cambridge! It’s a gorgeous, crisp, sunny day here, with the daffodils in bloom. We haven’t yet had a winter here in England. In fact, it’s been so warm that all the spring flowers are confused and starting to pop out early! I know those of you in North America have had some crazy weather too, over the past month or two. Hope all my lovely readers Down Under are keeping cool.
