⭐COVER REVEAL - Toy Boy⭐


In the second of my brand new cover reveals, it's the turn of upcoming dark romance Toy Boy...



Age is nothing but a number, that’s what they tell you, isn’t it?
So, when Luke Macey moved into the village – this mysterious stranger – and set his sights on me, I was wary. The last thing I wanted to be was one of those middle-aged women sucked in by a younger, handsome con man.
I was wary. But curious. In the end, though, I was still a divorced mother of two, just turned fifty, and not looking for a new relationship, least of all with a man seventeen years my junior.

Luke Macey was persistent.
Persuasive.
Hot-as-hell. And he wanted me.
Didn’t he…?
Because, you know what they say.
When something seems too good to be true it amost always, usually, is...



Toy Boy will be out early 2020. Pre-order details to follow...


And that's all the news for now, which means it's time I got back to work finishing these two brand new books of mine. And I really hope that some of you out there will enjoy reading these stories, because without you guys, what I'm doing, it's pointless really so, thank you! ❤️

⭐NEW BOOK NEWS! Title + Cover Reveal + Teaser!⭐


2020 will see the release of two brand new - and two very different - romance novels from me.  And today it's the turn of the dark romantic suspense Beautiful Dangerous...





Who am I?
You’ll find out. Soon.
How did I get here? How did I become this woman? This powerful, wealthy, dangerous woman…?
It’s a long story, and I’ll tell it, in a little while. All you need to know right now is that I didn’t start out wanting to be who I became. I never wanted the life I ended up living. The money, the power, I didn’t want any of it. Not at first, anyway. But sometimes we don’t always get what we want. Sometimes we lose control of our destinies, it happens far more easily than you might think. I certainly didn’t set out to be the person I ended up becoming, how could I? I didn’t even know women like me existed, because they didn’t. Not in my world. The one I left behind, when I fell in love with a man who needed me to choose between his world, and mine. I chose his. My first mistake…? I don’t know. I think that depends on how you look at things, but nothing was that simple. There was no black and white in that new world of mine, there were so many shades of gray. But what you probably should know is that I was just an ordinary girl, once-upon-a-time. Before I met the man who changed everything. Before the shit hit the fan and all hell broke loose. It’s just hard to believe, sometimes, that I was ever that girl, because when I look in the mirror I see a completely different woman staring back at me. A cold, emotionless woman, someone who’s seen things; done things; dark, dangerous things, shit I’d never thought I’d ever be capable of. And I don’t regret a thing. Because none of that is to blame for what’s happening now. None of it. What’s happening now is the result of something else entirely. And it wasn’t all my fault. Others played their part; started that timebomb ticking, and now – now my life depends on how I choose to deal with the consequences. Of what, you might ask? Of falling in love…
Love was the game changer. The thing that started it all.
Love changed me; made me stronger; turned me into the kind of bitch nobody wanted to mess with, and very few did. Those who tried, they paid for it.
Falling in love was the catalyst, and in the end it’s what’s caused my entire house of carefully stacked cards to come crashing down. And now – now it could kill me.
So, who am I, exactly?
My name is Olivia Delgado.
Head of the Delgado cartel.
And this is my story…



Beautiful Dangerous will be out early 2020. Watch this space for pre-order details, and news of another new dark romance also coming out early 2020...

⭐️It's Publication Day for Are You With Me!⭐️

Yes, it's here! Publication day for my brand new romance Are you With Me is here!

This story, set over four days at a fictional electronic dance music festival, was inspired by my own visit to my very first festival back in July - Tomorrowland in Belgium - and quite a few of the things that happened to us at Tomorrowland appear in this book: dancing in the rain; extreme weather; fabulous food... Let's put it this way, I did my research!

So, this story is very special to me, because it brings back a lot of memories of my time at Tomorrowland, a truly magical festival. It reminds me of what a very special place it is; how music can bring people together. It's a happy place. So this story is an uplifting one, and I just hope some of you out there enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it...

Book Blurb

Five people.
Five stories.
One festival…

After quitting his job, Markus arrives at Ethergy – one of Europe’s biggest electronic dance music festivals – with the realization that he’s come to a bit of a crossroads in his life. But he’s determined not to let reality get in the way of the weekend, that can wait until he gets back home, to Iceland. And after striking up a friendship with Sonny – the English girl who’s pitched her tent next to his – he begins to believe that this year’s Ethergy just might be the best one yet. He feels an instant connection with Sonny. She’s beautiful, but guarded, and he wants to get to know her more but she keeps pushing him away at every turn. Has he got time to make her feel that connection, too? Could they be more than just festival friends…?

Sonny has come to Ethergy – her first ever festival – alone. She wants to mark the beginning of the rest of her life, after escaping a controlling relationship, and despite feeling instantly comfortable in Markus’ company, it isn’t long before she’s putting those barriers back up that she thought she’d finally torn down. And she begins to wonder if she’ll ever really be free. But with the help of Markus, a new friend called Winter, and the magic of the festival, maybe she can be. Maybe…

Dutch DJ and producer Arne Vos has played Ethergy every year since the festival began. And this year he’s celebrating twenty-five years in the business by playing an epic eight-hour set on the final night of the festival. He should be having the time of his life, but what the outside world doesn’t know – doesn’t see – is that he’s struggling with the kind of self-doubt that’s caused him to suddenly start questioning everything from his career to his personal life.
He’s been in a relationship with Dutch-Belgian Techno/House DJ Elia Ida for a few years now. A rising star in the world of electronic dance music, Elia’s had to deal with people claiming she’s only with Arne because of who he is and what he can do for her, but they both know the truth. She doesn’t need Arne. It’s him who needs her, and that’s something Arne has trouble dealing with. That, and a past relationship Elia had with fellow DJ Magnus Jennsen, a.k.a. Magma. It got in the way, for a while, and it almost destroyed them all, but they got through it. Or maybe not, in Arne’s case. And with Magnus also playing Ethergy, and Elia still insisting he’ll always be her friend, can Arne continue to accept that? Or fight it. This year’s Ethergy is going to be a very different one for Arne, that’s for sure. In a way he can’t even begin to imagine…

For German couple Johan and Heidi, Ethergy is a very special place. They met there, five years ago. And they’ve been coming back as a couple ever since. But this year, Johan has something very special planned. He’s got it all mapped out in his head, the perfect moment, and Heidi’s going to love it. Isn’t she…?

Heid has an inkling that Johan has a surprise planned for this year’s Ethergy, after all, they have a lot to celebrate. Johan’s promotion. Moving in together. Their future, it’s an exciting one, and Heidi couldn’t be happier. Until she receives a phone call that turns everything they both thought they wanted upside down, in a heartbeat. And they only have the weekend to work it all out…

Can a festival really change your life?
For Markus, Sonny, Arne, Heidi and Johan, yes. It can. It did.
It changed theirs…

'Striker' & 'The First Christmas Without You' now available *FREE* with Kindle Unlimited!

I'm now pleased to announce that two of my books published through One More Chapter - a division of HarperCollins UK - are now available to read for *FREE* with Kindle Unlimited!


The two books are sexy soccer romance Striker, and Lapland-set The First Christmas Without You.



This is the first time any of my traditionally published books have been available with KU, so I'm curious to know how successful this is going to be, as it seems to work pretty well for my self-published books. But as these are books I wrote around six years ago it might take a little bit of a push to get people to notice them.

Striker was the first of three books in The Beautiful Game trilogy. Check out the blurb below...

Footballer's Wives meets Jackie Collins in this sizzling scorcher of a read!

Amber Sullivan is an ambitious, beautiful and feisty Sports reporter for a local TV news programme. With an ex-professional soccer player for a father, she's grown up in and around the world of Premiership football, and she knows better than to get mixed up with the men who play the game. 

One of the biggest names in football, Ryan Fisher is young, hot, and talented. He has it all - looks, fame, money, not to mention women falling at his over-insured feet and a lifestyle he's in no hurry to give up. At the centre of a multi-million-pound transfer deal back to his home club, Ryan's a big scoop for a local sports Journalist, and Amber can't afford to miss this career-making opportunity, even if that means having to interview a man whose ego is as big as his talent. But once the tape starts rolling it's clear Ryan's got more than just an exclusive on his mind... and he's used to getting exactly what he wants...

Delving into the lives of those who live and work within the so-called Beautiful Game, 'Striker' is a story of sex, secrets, and the true cost of fame...


The First Christmas Without You is an emotional but heartwarming story set in Lapland, and inspired by my own visit to Finnish Lapland a few years ago...

A story of love and hope at Christmas, this is a truly magical Lapland fairytale...



Jessie Collins has always wanted to visit Lapland. But this Christmas, more than any other, it's the place she feels she really needs to be as she tries to come to terms with a painful past, and a future she really needs to start living...


'Magical' -  Rachel's Random Reads

'A gorgeous book filled with hope' - Amazon Reviewer

'A wonderful Christmas story' - Love For Books

Both of these books are available to read for FREE with Kindle Unlimited through Amazon UK and Amazon AU. So, if you have KU, and you fancy either a new guilty-pleasure, or a moving Christmas read, click the links below to download your copy. And if you don't have Kindle Unlimited, both books are, at the moment, just 99p each!

⭐Are You With Me (Superstar DJ Series Book 2) - Release date & Pre-Order details!⭐

We might be hurtling head-first towards Winter, and dare I say it, Christmas, but I'm not one to bow to conformity, which is just as well because we're halfway to November and I'm about to release a book set at a music festival, which are rarely held at this time of year, Tomorrowland Winter excepted, of course.

Anyway, Are You With Me was inspired by my own visit to my very first music festival back in July - one of THE biggest electronic dance music festivals in the world: Tomorrowland. And quite a few of my own experiences at that truly magical festival have been written into this story, but there'll be more about that in the coming weeks. Watch this space... 😉

OK. Check out Are You With Me's book blurb below, and all the details you need to know about its release date, and pre-order info...

Are You With Me (Book #2 in the Superstar DJ Series) - Meet the Characters

5 Stories.
One Festival...

Are You With Me - Book #2 in the Superstar DJ Series - is a festival-set story based very heavily on my own experiences at my first ever festival: Tomorrowland in Belgium. (And you can read all about those HERE).

Focusing on five main characters in particular - Arne, Markus, Sonny, Heid and Johan - all from different parts of the world, it tells their very different stories over the course of a weekend at a huge fictional electronic dance music festival called Ethergy.

The book is due for release on October 30th, but for now, come and meet the characters, and find out a little bit more about the stories Are You With Me will be telling...


After quitting his job, 27 year-old Markus arrives at Ethergy – one of Europe’s biggest electronic dance music festivals – with the realization that he’s come to a bit of a crossroads in his life. But he’s determined not to let reality get in the way of the weekend, that can wait until he gets back home, to Iceland. And after striking up a friendship with Sonny – the English girl who’s pitched her tent next to his – he begins to believe that this year’s Ethergy just might be the best one yet. He feels an instant connection with Sonny. She’s beautiful but guarded, and he wants to get to know her more but she keeps pushing him away at every turn. Has he got time to make her feel that connection, too? Could they be more than just festival friends…?


26 year-old Sonny has come to Ethergy – her first-ever festival – alone. She wants to mark the beginning of the rest of her life, after escaping a controlling relationship, and despite feeling instantly comfortable in Markus’ company, it isn’t long before she’s putting those barriers back up that she thought she’d finally torn down. And she begins to wonder if she’ll ever really be free. But with the help of Markus, a new friend called Winter, and the magic of the festival, maybe she can be. Maybe…


Dutch DJ and producer Arne Vos has played Ethergy every year since the festival began. And this year he’s celebrating twenty-five years in the business by playing an epic eight-hour set on the final night of the festival. He should be having the time of his life, but what the outside world doesn’t know – doesn’t see – is that he’s struggling with the kind of self-doubt that’s caused him to suddenly start questioning everything from his career to his personal life.

He’s been in a relationship with Dutch-Belgian Techno/House DJ Elia Ida for a few years now. A rising star in the world of electronic dance music, Elia’s had to deal with people claiming she’s only with Arne because of who he is and what he can do for her, but they both know the truth. She doesn’t need Arne. It’s him who needs her, and that’s something Arne has trouble dealing with. That, and a past relationship Elia had with fellow DJ Magnus Jennsen, a.k.a. Magma. It got in the way, for a while, and it almost destroyed them all, but they got through it. Or maybe not, in Arne’s case. And with Magnus also playing Ethergy, and Elia still insisting he’ll always be her friend, can Arne continue to accept that? Or fight it. This year’s Ethergy is going to be a very different one for Arne, that’s for sure. In a way he can’t even begin to imagine…



For twenty-something German couple Johan and Heidi, Ethergy is a very special place. They met there, five years ago. And they’ve been coming back as a couple ever since. But this year, Johan has something very special planned. He’s got it all mapped out in his head, the perfect moment, and Heidi’s going to love it. Isn’t she…?

Heid has an inkling that Johan has a surprise planned, after all, they have a lot to celebrate. Johan’s promotion. Moving in together. Their future, it’s an exciting one, and Heidi couldn’t be happier. Until she receives a phone call that turns everything they both thought they wanted upside down, in a heartbeat. And they only have the weekend to work it all out…




30 year-old Winter is very much a secondary character in the book, but she's also a very important one, for Sonny.
From Michigan, USA, she's the complete opposite to Sonny - wild, outgoing and super-confident. All things Sonny would love to be - all things Sonny once was. Can Winter help her regain her confidence? Her love for life? Her trust in people?






Kristos Garcia is another secondary character in the book, but it's where we're introduced to this charismatic and charming French DJ and Producer, and close friend of Arne's.


The character of Magnus Jennsen (a.k.a. Magma) is a Swedish House DJ. An unpredictable, somewhat edgy character, he's had his fair share of demons to face up to. He has a challenging relationship with a few of his fellow DJs, and sometimes clashes with them for various reasons. Has a reputation as a bit of a 'playboy'. 
A secondary character in Are You With Me, Magnus will have his own story in book #3 of the Superstar DJ series.
