A Perfect Selection 3 is Here!

A number of my lovely readers have been asking when they can get A Perfect Selection 3, with all the latest New Jersey Ice Cats‘ short stories. I had to wait until I had five new stories — mainly so I could write the final one — but now that I’ve done that … A Perfect Selection 3 is here!

A mouthwatering selection of five holiday-themed, bite-sized romances featuring players from the New Jersey Ice Cats.

Can you read just one?

This collection features Halloween, Thanksgiving, Valentine’s and New Year’s Eve short stories, as well as the brand new Memorial Day short story, A Perfect Tribute.

A Perfect Pumpkin (Halloween), A Perfect Favor (Thanksgiving), A Perfect Rescue (New Year’s Eve) and A Perfect Gift (Valentine’s Day) have all appeared on my website as limited time promotional give-aways, but this is the first time A Perfect Tribute has been available.

 

Never Forget

For wounded military veteran, Naomi Como, Memorial Day is about more than barbecues and beer. She’s all for celebrating life and freedom, but she wants to mourn her fallen friends her own way. Can a hot hockey player convince her that living her life to the full is the perfect tribute to those she’s lost?

 

 

Of course, my first two NJ Ice Cats’ anthologies are still available, A Perfect Selection and A Perfect Selection 2. Great for when you need a little pick-me-up and you only have a short time to read a story.

Go ahead and treat yourself!

Happy Reading!

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.

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!

This promotion is now finished.

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!

Vlad’s Story

 

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.

Taylor’s Story

 

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?

 

 

I’m also pleased to be able to offer my French and German readers their own version of A Perfect Party!

La fête parfaite

 

Rien que des amis?

Eine perfeckte Party

 

Nur gute Freunde?

Free for you to download. All you have to do is click on the cover of the story you’d like to read.

Troy’s Story

A day of thanksgiving?

When Ice Cats’ defenseman, Troy Davidson, sees his ex-fiancé at his parents’ Thanksgiving party, he’s determined to make things right. He screwed up five years ago, when he ditched their engagement party to elope with a movie star. Now divorced, he realises he’s only ever loved one woman. Charlotte Daniels claims she’s forgiven Troy. But can she trust him enough to take another chance on him and love?

 

 

Will’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?

 

 

Coop’s Story

Lights, Camera … Turkey!

Cooper ‘Coop’ Johansen doesn’t expect his fresh start with his new team to entail being Mr. November for the Ice Cats’ charity calendar. Food photographer Becca Emory’s Thanksgiving shoot could win her a contract that will stabilise her business. But her best friend’s in a jam and needs her to produce a calendar page for the Ice Cats asap. Combining the jobs should be a piece of cake. After all, how much trouble can a shirtless hockey player and three kittens be?

 

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate and Happy Reading to you all!

Logan’s story

When sports’ journalist, Frankie Ellerton, agrees to help her sister at the pumpkin festival, the last person she expects to see is the sexy hockey player with whom she had a one-night-stand. Ice Cats’ forward, Logan Halliday, knows the Stanley Cup celebration he shared with Frankie was special, but she insists their relationship must now be strictly business. With his niece as chaperone, maybe he can carve more than the perfect jack o’lantern — a fresh start with Frankie.

 

Drake’s Story

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 neighbour. 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?

 

Blade’s Story

Who’s the lady behind the mask?

Ice Cats’ forward, Jamie ‘Blade’ Wilkinson thinks his neighbour, pretty schoolteacher, Daisy Carturo, is too good for him. She deserves better than a man with his dark past.

If only he could have the best of both worlds.
