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!

Cover Reveal!

I’m excited to be able to share the lovely cover for my next book, A Perfect Compromise, which is out in February.

A Perfect Compromise Cover


















Theirs is a game of give-and-take… 

Schoolteacher Issy Brandine has a plan to build a stable, secure future for herself. No settling for second-best. Anything more than a sultry Caribbean fling with hotshot hockey star Jean Baptiste Larocque isn’t part of the plan. A New Jersey Ice Cat with the ultimate hockey trophy in his sights won’t fit into her low-key lifestyle. Except a surprise pregnancy changes everything.

Issy knows her child deserves more than a part-time dad. With JB’s eyes on the championship that will redeem his career, compromise is out of the question. But love—and the baby between them—might prove that nothing is impossible.

A Perfect Compromise is already up for pre-orders at Amazon and other bookstores. Please note: print copies of the Superromance line are no longer sold through bookstores or online retailers – though books are available to order via Harlequin.com. So A Perfect Compromise will only be available in digital form through online retailers. You can find all the links on the book page for A Perfect Compromise.
