Don’t Miss Out – 3 Free Valentine’s Reads!

Thank you once again to all my lovely readers who have told me how much they enjoyed by seasonal free reads over Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year. What better gift could I receive than to know I’ve made you happy with a fun read?

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it’s time for a new promotion and a new short story. Hop on over to my For Readers section and check out the 3 FREE Valentine’s-themed reads, including this year’s new story – A Perfect Gift.

The inspiration for this story, featuring a sawdust heart or sweetheart pin cushion, came from a friend. Some of you will have seen on my Facebook page that I took part in a project to commemorate World War 1, which involved decorating a sawdust heart. You can find out more about this amazing project here: www.ww1hearts.co.uk.

This is my humble effort, which honours those who served from Doc Cambridge’s family – hence the four surnames.

My friend. Michelle, mentioned that she’d rescued a vintage heart from a box at a fete, which sparked my imagination! So, Tom and Karly’s story was born.

 

 

Found: A heart in need of love

When Ice Cats’ forward, Tom Adamson, finds a forlorn, vintage sweetheart pin cushion at a Manhattan flea market, he doesn’t expect to have to battle lovely antiques’ collector, Karly Jacobs for it. The decorated sawdust heart will make the perfect present for his grandmother. But could a change of plan make it a perfect Valentine’s gift instead?

 

As well as A Perfect Gift, I am also giving you another chance to download A Perfect Bouquet and A Perfect Date.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But you’ll have to be quick – they’re only available for a short time!

Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy Reading!

A Perfect Valentine’s Gift – 3 Free Reads!

What better time for some delicious treats than Valentine’s Day?

I have the ‘perfect’ indulgence for romance readers and my lovely, loyal NJ Ice Cats’ fans … 3 FREE, bite-sized Valentine’s-themed stories, featuring some of the yummy hockey players of the NJ Ice Cats! These include my latest short story – A Perfect Gift, featuring sexy forward, Tom Adamson.

Found: A heart in need of love

When Ice Cats’ forward, Tom Adamson, finds a forlorn, vintage sweetheart pin cushion at a Manhattan flea market, he doesn’t expect to have to battle lovely antiques’ collector, Karly Jacobs for it. The decorated sawdust heart will make the perfect present for his grandmother. But could a change of plan make it a perfect Valentine’s gift instead?

If you haven’t already got them, you have a chance to download my other two Valentine’s-themed short stories, A Perfect Bouquet and A Perfect Date.

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?

 

Can the wrong guy make things right?

Zoe Coombs’ perfect Valentine’s date has turned into a disaster. Stood up at the best restaurant in town, with her ex-fiancé and his latest fling two tables over. Perhaps she should have accepted Ethan Blackmore’s invitation instead, even if she won’t chance her heart on another hockey player. But when the sexy, Ice Cats’ defenseman comes to her rescue, she wonders if he’s worth the risk, after all.

These are yours for free. Simply click on the cover of the story you’d like, to download.

But remember, these are only available for a limited time. So, make sure you get your copy, before the promotion ends!

Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy Reading!

 

A Perfect Selection 2 is Here!

The garden here in Cambridge is in full blossom, but the weather is more like July, than May. So it looks like spring, but feels like summer. Crazy English weather – not that we’re complaining!

It’s been an exciting time, seeing my NJ Devils exceeding all expectations and making the post-season this year. Sadly, we lost to the Lightning in the first round. But this is the start of something great, I’m sure! Congratulations to all those fans whose teams are still in the running for Lord Stanley’s Cup! And commiserations to those of you whose teams missed out or have been knocked out.

Thank you to everyone who let me know how much they’ve been enjoying the NJ Ice Cats short stories that I’ve been giving away in the For Readers’ section. I’m so glad you like keeping up with my men of the ice.

For those of you who have missed one ore more, as promised, I have gathered together 5 of the short stories into A Perfect Selection 2.

It is available for 99c at most digital retailers (links at the end of the post). Bite-sized, holiday-themed romances featuring NJ Ice Cats’ players — perfect for those times when you want a satisfying short read! The holidays included are July 4th, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day and Easter.

A Valentine’s Treat!

Not only is it February already, but it’s almost halfway through the month, with Valentine’s Day tomorrow! Here in Cambridge, the weather is still very cold, but the green shoots are popping out of the ground and the nights are already beginning to draw out.

Thankfully, for us and our cats, the various remodelling and redecorating projects at Chez Sugden are now complete. We love everything that’s been done by our wonderful tradesmen, but are glad to have finished with all the disruption.

For me, that’s meant I can write in peace! And I’ve been beavering away at several new projects — some Ice Cats and some not — which I look forward to sharing with you soon.

One thing I have been working on are some new holiday-themed Ice Cats’ short stories, in response to your lovely feedback about the ones I wrote for Halloween and Thanksgiving, and your kind requests for more. Yes, there will be another Ice Cats’ Short Story Anthology released soon, featuring the most recent stories, so don’t worry if you’ve missed the ones posted. Stay tuned for more on that soon.

In the meantime, as a special Valentine’s treat, I have put a new, FREE, Valentine-themed short story — A Perfect Date — up in the For Readers’ section. And, as a bonus, I have also put up A Perfect Bouquet. These 2 FREE short stories will only be available for a short time, so be sure to head over there and download them before they disappear!

Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy Reading!
