3 FREE NJ Ice Cats Valentine’s Reads!

Thank you to all of my lovely readers who contacted me to tell me how much you loved my recent Festive Free Reads promotion. It’s my pleasure to give you fun, bite-sized reads to enjoy!

And, yes, I will happily give you a chance to download some free Valentine’s reads. Given the tough times we’re all going through at the moment, it’s the least I can do!

So, here are my 3 NJ Ice Cats’ Valentine’s-themed short stories for your reading delight. Feel free to indulge in these no cal, super-delicious treats!

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.

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?

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!

3 Free Festive Season Reads!

This promotion has now ended – stay tuned for more free reads, coming soon!

Thank you to all my lovely readers who have asked if I’ll do my free NJ Ice Cats’ short stories again for the festive season. When you say such nice things about my bite-sized reads, how can I resist? 🙂

So, for your reading pleasure in those stolen moments over the holiday season, here are three NJ Ice Cats’ short stories:

Just Good Friends?

Ice Cats defenseman, Taylor ‘Mad Dog’ Madden wants more than friendship from Lizzie Martin. Much more. So when a Christmas party provides the chance to kick their relationship up a gear, should he take it or will he lose her completely?

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?

Be Careful What You Wish For

New Year’s Eve hasn’t been kind to Ice Cats’ forward, Nate Gallison. This year, he’s responsible for the team’s loss. All he wants is a quiet night. But when a sexy brunette in a red dress needs help escaping from the date from hell, he wonders if a little festive hide-and-seek can lead to a magical midnight for them both?

Simply click on the cover and you should be able to download your free short story.

As a bonus, you can also download the French and/or German versions of A Perfect Party. Simply click on the covers below to download.

Rien que des amis?

Taylor ‘Mad Dog’ Madden, défenseur des Ice Cats, veut plus que l’amitié de Lizzie Martin. Beaucoup plus. Alors, lorsqu’une fête de Noël lui donne l’occasion de passer à la vitesse supérieure, doit-il la saisir, au risque de la perdre complètement?

Nur gute Freunde?

Der Verteidiger der Ice Cats, Taylor ‘Mad Dog’ Madden, will mehr als nur Freundschaft mit Lizzie Martin. Viel mehr. Bei einer Weihnachtsparty bietet sich die Gelegenheit, diesen Wunsch in die Tat umzusetzen. Soll er die Chance ergreifen, oder riskiert er damit, Lizzie zu verlieren?

But remember, these won’t be available forever – on Jan 6 they will be gone! So remember to download them!

However you celebrate the festive season, wishing you and yours a happy and healthy one! Please take care and stay safe so that we can all have a better 2021!

New Series! New Box Set! New Cover! Free Reads!

So excited to share lots of great news with you! (and possibly use up my entire year’s worth of exclamation points in one post <g>).

First, my new series for Entangled Publishing has a new name and my first book in the series has a fab new title.

Drum roll, please!

Watch this space for a cover reveal for Icing Temptation, the first book in my Dockers Score! series. Tentative launch date is Jan/Feb 2021, hopefully just as hockey is getting back underway for the long-delayed 2020-21 season.

Lots of news for my New Jersey Ice Cats series too.

First, a delicious new cover for A Perfect Catch.

Also, I’ve now released A Perfect Collection, which contains the first 3 full length books in the New Jersey Ice Cats series and a bonus novella.

And, because it’s the season of giving, head over to my For Readers section and download not 1, not 2, but 3 free, bite-size festive reads!

As a bonus, you can also download the French and German versions of A Perfect Party!

Wherever you are and however you celebrate, I wish you and yours a wonderful festive season. Please stay safe and take care so that we can all have a happy and healthy 2021!

A Perfect Easter Treat!

Can you believe how fast the year is going already? It seems like it was Valentine’s Day last week, and already Easter is almost upon us.

Back by popular demand is my free Easter NJ Ice Cats short story – A Perfect Chance.  For a limited time only, you can hop over to my For Readers section and download Vexer and Elise’s story absolutely free!

 

Making an Egg-stra Effort!

Ice Cats’ defenceman, Hank ‘Vexer’ Delecchio, knows he needs a game-changer to get lovely nurse, Elise Arnett, to look past her dislike of professional athletes and take a chance on him. Will dressing up as the Easter Bunny, to entertain the kids on the children’s ward, be the play that finally helps him score?

 

 

Stay tuned … A Perfect Selection 3 is almost here! Another mouthwatering collection of Ice Cats’ short stories. The perfect indulgence for those of us whose favourite hockey team didn’t make the Playoffs this year. Or, even if they did, to help reduce the stress of those playoff games.

I hope to be able to reveal the cover shortly.

In the meantime, Happy Easter and Happy Reading!

 

 

A Perfect Easter Treat!

The perfect Easter treat is delicious, calorie-free and wins your heart!

Hmm … I may have just the thing.

I know, still not as decadent as chocolate or your favourite candy (sorry, don’t get Peeps – blech!), but on the bright side, you can indulge in both and not feel guilty.

Especially as, for a limited time, A Perfect Chance is absolutely free for you, my lovely readers!

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!
