Thank you to all my lovely readers who have downloaded the free New Jersey Ice Cats‘ Short Stories over the past year or so. A special thank you to those of you who have taken the time to get in touch with me and tell me how much you’ve enjoyed them … and when there will be more!

As promised, I’ve written a special Valentine’s short story, featuring back-up goaltender, Chaz ‘Monty’ Montgomery and a special florist, who doesn’t like red roses!

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?

 

Remember, this story will only be available during February, so download it before its gone!

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.

A Perfect Compromise CoverLots of news this month. You’ll have seen that A Perfect Compromise is out and instantly hit #2 on Amazon! Thank you to everyone who pre-ordered and bought it during launch week! The reviews have started to come in and I’m pleased (and relieved) that your reactions have been positive. You liked JB and Issy’s story! Thank you to everyone who has posted a review, tagged me on FB or emailed me to tell me how much you enjoyed A Perfect Compromise. I can’t tell you how much that means!

For those who’ve asked whether Sapphie gets her own story – and her very own Ice Cat – the answer is yes, and I’m writing it at the moment. 🙂 Stay tuned for more info on the tentatively title A Perfect Plan.

Last, but definitely not least, I’ve been asked if there is a way to get hold of the short stories that you may have missed. The answer is – yes, there will be soon. I’m putting all six stories into an anthology, called A Perfect Selection, which will shortly be available for sale.

Until next time, Happy Reading!

Welcome to 2016!

Happy New Year!

Hope your festive season was a hearty one and that you are healthy and happy going into 2016!

Lots going on in the world of the New Jersey Ice Cats over the next couple of months, starting with the launch of the next book in the series – A Perfect Compromise – on Feb 1. This is the story many of you have been waiting for – the romance of reader favourite, Jean Baptiste Larocque!

A Perfect Compromise

I had a lot of fun putting JB through the mill in this book. He’s earned it, after his cockiness in the previous stories! Issy is the perfect woman for him, and vice versa, although neither of them realises that straight away – despite the sexy sparks that fly the first time their eyes meet! Add a surprise pregnancy into the mix and things really get complicated!

You can read the blurb and have a sneak peek read of a excerpt, by clicking on the cover to the left.

You can also pre-order your copy of A Perfect Compromise there.

I’m pleased to announce that the paperback will now be available at both Amazon and Barnes & Noble, as well as on the Harlequin.com website.

I will be offering several chances to win a copy of A Perfect Compromise too, so make sure you are signed up to my newsletter and have liked my Facebook Author page. That way you’ll know how you can be entered into my prize draws.

Thank you to all of you who have let me know how much you’ve enjoyed the free New Jersey Ice Cats’ short stories I’ve been offering in the For Readers’ section over the past few months. As some of you missed the last story, A Perfect Storm (which was partly my fault as I didn’t do an announcement on this page – sorry! – though it was announced elsewhere), I’ve decided to offer it to you again during the month of January. So make sure you download the Russian Rocket’s story before the end of the month.

Snowbound!

When Ice Cats’ forward, Vladimir ‘Vlad’ Ralinkov, gets caught in a snowstorm, on his way back from a game, he seeks refuge in his favourite diner. Could this be the opportunity he’s been waiting for to heat things up with lovely diner owner, Poppy Lambert, or will she leave him out in the cold?

 

 

Next up, I’m working on a special Valentine’s short story, A Perfect Bouquet, that I will offer in February, featuring Chaz ‘Monty’ Montgomery, so stay tuned for more news about that!

Also, plans are in the works to make A Perfect Selection – an anthology of all the Ice Cats’ short stories – available for sale in March. As soon as everything is finalised, I’ll let you know.

Until next time, happy reading!
