I’m closing up the new releases this year with a contemporary* story that has marriage of convenience, pretending to be together, friends-to-lovers, and a bit of a Christmas romance.
Married Before Christmas is the first book in the trilogy, but they are all going to be stand-alones with different couples getting their HEA in each book.
WHAT’S THE BEST FRIEND FOR IF NOT FOR… MARRIAGE?
Daniel Collins could always count on his biological father to make his life miserable, but the man’s pursuit of ruining Ruth’s Children Hospital was the worst part of it all. Now, with his father dying, there was a chance for Daniel to take over the family trust that controlled the hospital. The main condition of the trust? He needed to be married.
The problem was, he didn’t even have a boyfriend, let alone a husband.
He did, however, have a best friend who saved him more than once over the years.
Noa Alana had a comfortable job in the company he helped create, but he had been feeling restless lately. Daniel coming to him with the most bizarre idea Noa had heard in a while wasn’t exactly the change he was waiting for, but he would never say no to helping his best friend.
A fake marriage could bring out something new between them, but the question was—were they ready to risk their friendship for the unknown?
It’s available on Amazon and in Kindle Unlimited HERE
* The book is set in the same world as DC Files series, but it can also be read separately. I’m just unable not to connect my contemporary series together. 😉
Daryan’s dream had always been to have a romantic bond with his companion. He’d seen it as the best possible option. But when he arrived at the Academy a week before the searching ceremony, he met a dragon who made him feel things he shouldn’t, not now. Not when Daryan was still hoping his companion would be the one for him in every way.
Aderys was happy and settled in his own platonic bond, so when he met Daryan, he had none of his doubts. He was ready, but Daryan wasn’t, so Aderys focused on something else—the spark of a revolution that was going to change Teranea forever, one way or another.
When the pull became too strong—both towards each other and towards the whirlwind of change—Daryan and Aderys would need to decide what they were going to fight for and what they were willing to let go.

Walking into the Marine Corps recruitment office.
Experiencing an earthquake in Alaska.
Meeting a TV crush in the elevator.
Going to the Winter Olympics.
These were the turning points for the men in this collection as they were trying to figure out their lives and stumbled into love instead.
Every story in this collection is a stand-alone and there are no cliffhangers.
Three of the four stories were previously published separately by MLR Press. Impossible to Resist has never been published before.
STORIES IN THIS COLLECTION:
A man walks into a recruitment office… and nothing goes according to plan.
Matt Holston, a soon-to-be college graduate, is trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life. One of his ideas is enlisting to the US Marine Corps, but when he goes to the recruitment office to check out his options, he meets a guy who is a complete opposite of what Matt imagined a recruitment officer to be.
Cole Perry had suffered from PTSD after his second tour overseas and now he just wants to get to the end of his contract. Transferred from his old unit, he may be a glorified office clerk, but what he’s definitely not is a guy who would help anybody make the same mistake he did.
So what makes Matt come back to see Cole again if not the spiel about serving his country?
TREMORS OF THE PAST
When two men with complicated past meet at the conference in Alaska, things are already on shaky ground.
Derek Warden is certain his boss sent him to cover the conference in the middle of nowhere, Alaska, to punish him for something. He is ready for the whole thing to be over before it even begins.
Hayden Shaw has been looking forward to this conference for months. The problem of fracking is very dear to his heart and he can’t wait to spend the long weekend with like-minded people.
Neither of them expected the big earthquake, but most importantly—they didn’t expect each other. Meeting again after over a decade may result in something even more surprising that the ground trembling under their feet.
IMPOSSIBLE TO RESIST
Meeting your TV crush in the elevator simply doesn’t happen.
Tim Parker is a fan blogger and he’s in Miami for the Comic-Con, so it’s already an amazing trip. But then he bumps into his TV crush (Josh. Freaking. Witchell.) and the whole weekend turns into a wish-fulfillment dream.
Who is Tim to say no to that?
RUNNING OFF THE EDGE
After the knee injury, Liam O’Connor, the former gold medalist, is no longer able to compete at the Olympics. He’s in Sochi as an assistant coach for another male figure skater and hopes to avoid Eric Lanney as much as possible.
Meanwhile, Eric is here to compete for gold in pair skating, but is that the only thing that will be important to him? Or will it fade in comparison to the spark that never died?
When the former lovers meet again in Russia, they will have a chance to learn that a gold medal isn’t the greatest prize you can win at the Winter Olympics.
This book is FREE December 27-31st, so grab it now!
It’s almost here! Finding Home comes out in just a few days and then the series will be done.
I have to admit, a part of me loves the comfort of this town and its people so much that I could probably write in this series forever. But the writer in me knew it was the best place to end it and so I did. I have no doubt there are many possible love stories in this community worthy of being told, but now I will leave it to your imagination.
While some of the stories in the series came to me later on, I knew Charlie’s story from the start. But even then I thought of it as the final one, waiting for its turn. And now, here we are. I hope you like it.
Leo Tomilson has come back to Harrington Hills after a fire that changed his life forever, and all he wants is to be left alone. No longer being a firefighter is hard enough, but there are days when he doesn’t even feel like a proper werewolf anymore, and that cuts deeper than anything else.
Charlie Dewitt is as reliable as they come in Harrington Hills. Ever since he put down roots in this town, he knew he wanted to stay here forever. His brother is here, his pack is here… He has everything he needs. Not everything he wants, perhaps, but that’s fine.
Their first meeting is a mess as they clash over a series of misunderstandings. But Charlie is a patient man, Leo sees in him what most people miss, and neither of them is good at taking the easy way out, so maybe there could be something between them, after all.
