πŸŽ„πŸ“šIt's RELEASE DAY for 'This Christmas, in Stockholm'πŸ“šπŸŽ„


Time for another new book release from me, and this time it's a Christmas novella! Yep, something a little different from me - although still with a slightly sexy edge - and the first Christmas-themed story I've written since The First Christmas Without You all those years ago.

This Christmas, in Stockholm is out today!



Christmas. A time when one year ends and another gets ready to begin. A new year, a new start. And that’s exactly what Eva has come to Sweden to do – plan her own new start. Or think about it, anyway.

With her marriage seemingly over, and the prospect of turning forty looming, Eva needs to escape for a few days, to think – about her broken marriage; about what she’s going to do next. And Stockholm, at Christmas, seemed as good a place as any to do that thinking. Far enough away from home to give her the space she needs, while giving her the opportunity to spend time in a city she’d visited once before – a fleeting visit last summer – and had always wanted to come back to. She just wished the circumstances were different, because this is no holiday. Not really. She’s made herself a promise. Something she has to do, before she leaves. On her final full day in Sweden – the day of her fortieth birthday – she needs to make a decision, because until she does that, Eva knows she can’t really begin to move on. But whatever she decides to do, whatever choice she makes, her life is going to change. And that’s what she’s afraid of.

So, being distracted by a tall, ridiculously handsome stranger just hours after arriving? Well, that definitely hadn’t been in her plans, but she soon finds herself drawn to this sexy Swede, in ways she could never have imagined. But as Eva’s time in Stockholm draws to a close; as the time to make that decision she promised herself she’d make before going home looms ever nearer, has a few days in the company of a hot-as-hell Scandinavian helped her make the right choice? Or was he the one distraction she really didn’t need…?

'This Christmas, in Stockholm' – a story about new beginnings, taking chances, and very sexy Swedes…

**Just to say that, while ‘This Christmas, in Stockholm’ is extremely low on strong language, it DOES contain one or two quite steamy sex scenes.**

'This Christmas, in Stockholm' is a standalone novella of around 24,000 words.




This Christmas, in Stockholm is out now, and it's only 99p! Or FREE to read with KindleUnlimited!

🎸⭐It's Release Day for Reckless! My HOT new rockstar romance!⭐🎸


It's publication day for my HOT new rock star romance Reckless!

Blurb

A Vegas pole dancer with a shocking secret.
A hot-as-hell rock star with a reputation.
He saw her.
He wanted her.
He got her.
Eventually...

He doesn't know what she's done.
She doesn't know what he's capable of.
It doesn't matter.
'Cause falling in love, that was never an option.

Lily Mae - strong, beautiful, but damaged.
Seth Carter - an arrogant son-of-a-b***h who’s used to having anything he wants, including women. And what Seth Carter wants, Seth Carter gets, because no woman’s ever rejected him.

Lily did. At first.

She made him work, but she sure as hell was worth it. ‘Cause when it came down to it, they both wanted the same thing – no ties. No commitment. Just low-down dirty sex; someone to play with, until the boredom kicked in, ‘cause it always did, where Seth Carter was concerned.

But as their relationship unexpectedly shifts course, the game changes. They change. And as Lily’s sucked deeper into Seth’s rock star world, she struggles to keep her secret, and a game which started out being played on her terms suddenly switches to his as Seth realizes that his beautiful young plaything is way, way more than that. And he wants to keep her.

She let herself fall for a man who was nothing but bad for her. A man who caused her to become careless, because she saw nothing but him. A danger she ignored.

Lily Mae isn’t who she says she is.
Seth kind of knew that.

And as the truth about who Lily really is – and what she did – finally comes to light, is Seth Carter the man who can save her? Or the one who destroys her…?





Reckless is out now and available to read for FREE with KINDLE UNLIMITED!

⭐COVER REVEAL AND SYNOPSIS! 'Reckless' - A brand new, red HOT rock star romance!⭐




August 2018...




A brand new red HOT rock star romance!

Synopsis

Seth Carter – Music legend.
Lily Mae – Dancer in a private Vegas club. Extras given, if paid for.

The rock star and the runaway.
A toxic relationship that should never have happened.

She’s a strong, beautiful but damaged young woman with a devastating secret.
He’s an arrogant son-of-a-b***h who’s used to having anything he wants, including women. And what Seth Carter wants, Seth Carter gets, because no woman’s ever rejected him.

Lily did.
At first.

She made him work, but she sure as hell was worth it. ‘Cause when it came down to it, they both wanted the same thing – no ties. No commitment. No falling in love. Just low-down dirty sex; someone to play with, until the boredom kicked in, ‘cause it always did, in Seth’s world.

But as their relationship unexpectedly shifts course, the game changes. They change. And as Lily’s sucked deeper into Seth's rock star world, she struggles to keep her secret, and a game which started out being played on her terms suddenly switches to his as Seth realizes that his beautiful young plaything is way, way more than that. And he needs to keep hold of her.

She let herself fall for a man who was nothing but bad for her. A man who caused history to repeat itself. Almost… 
A man who caused her to become careless, because she saw nothing but him. A danger she ignored.

Lily Mae isn’t who she says she is.
Seth kind of knew that.

And as the truth about who Lily really is – and what she did – slowly starts to come to light, is Seth Carter the only man who can save her? Or the one who destroys her…?

⭐πŸ“šIt's Publication Day for 'Second Chance Summer'!πŸ“š⭐

Today sees the release of my brand new summer romance, Second Chance Summer!


Inspired by a trip to my favourite Balearic Island earlier this year, Second Chance Summer is an emotional, uplifting summer read; a story of love, hope, friendship, and taking chances, set on the island of Majorca...

And, in a somewhat surprising departure, for me, anyway, it's almost a sweet romance - but I say almost, this is me we're talking about here, and this book is still written very much in my own style, so, if you're looking for your usual summer romance, this might not be it. But, if you want a story that will take you away from it all for a few hours - a story that will transport you to a beautiful Spanish island, and allow you to escape into a world of sunshine and beaches; new beginnings and second chances - then you just might like Second Chance Summer...

Book Blurb

Dario

When Adelina Gray turned up at my cafΓ© that day, sad and alone, I had no idea she’d become such a big part of my life. Two years later, that’s exactly what she is – my best friend. 
The woman I’ve fallen in love with. 
But I’ve never told her how I really feel, I can’t do that. I can’t tell her, BECAUSE I love her. Because I want to protect her…

Adelina

I came to Majorca to escape. To remember. To get over Nathan’s death. I was lost and confused and Dario Moreno, he saved me. He made me smile again, made me realise my world hadn’t ended, it had changed, yes, but I still had a life to live. He gave me a home on this beautiful island, a job; a chance to make a new start, he’s my best friend. I’m starting to live again, because of Dario. But loving another man? I don’t know. It wasn’t something I could even think about, not for a long time. Until the day I met Jonas Hofmann. Arrogant. Aloof. Sexy-as-hell. He’s everything I’ve never wanted in a man, everything I should steer clear of, but, I don’t know if I can…

Jonas

Running one of Europe’s biggest hotel groups takes up all of my time, and it’s a job I love. The family business. And yet, I’d been willing to take a step back, settle down, try and stay in one place for more than a fortnight. Because I loved her. But she hurt me. She made me cold. Cynical. She made me wary of ever letting myself feel anything for anyone, I didn’t want to go there again. Until Adelina Gray crashed into my life. Or did I crash into hers? It doesn’t matter, all I know is, things are changing. And now I’m starting to fight every emotion I never wanted to feel…

Three people.
Three second chances.
One summer…


All Dario wants is for Addie to be happy again.
All Addie wants is for Dario to find that special someone. 
He’s already found her. She just doesn’t know it, yet. 
All Jonas wants is to be able to trust again. To find a woman who wants him for who he is, not what he has.
They’re all about to have that second chance.
But just as Dario is ready to tell Addie how he really feels; to reveal the heart-breaking secret he’s kept from her for so long – too long – everything changes. Is someone’s second chance about to come just a little too late…?






Want to try before you buy? You can check out the first two chapters of Second Chance Summer for FREE right HERE!

And you can also check out the music behind the book right HERE by listening to the Second Chance Summer Playlist over on Spotify!

Second Chance Summer is available to download now! Read it for **FREE** with Kindle Unlimited!


I hope some of you enjoy reading Addie, Jonas and Dario's story as much as I enjoyed writing it. And if you do enjoy it, I would be so, so grateful if you could pop over to Amazon and leave a short review - as little as one word will do. It would really mean a lot. Thank you! πŸ’“

And next up from me, book-wise, is a low-down dirty rock star romance, and a Christmas novella set in Stockholm, Sweden. Both are coming soon, so, watch this space...
