Written in partnership with the fabulous Nicole Flockton, it is two novellas set at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in February 2018.
Nicole’s story is about snowboarder Brady Thompson and Ice Skater Arielle Baldwyn.
Fighting Their Attraction: Snowboarder Brady Thompson landed in Seoul favored to win elusive gold. But instead of fresh powder, he finds that a past he can’t escape is twisting his half-pipe into knots. Figure skater Arielle Baldwin is determined to win a medal so she can walk away from her coach mom’s stranglehold on her life. Can a good girl and a bad boy reaching for their dreams make for a dynamic duo?
My story is about Brady’s old skating partner, Maybelle Li and her new partner.
Man of Ice: How can the Games go so wrong for friendly, upbeat Maybelle Li? Her ex-skating partner is raining on her parade with memories of the past, and her current partner, Bohdan Dovzhenko, is the hottest thing to hit the ice this decade—and the coldest companion. He’s all work and no conversation beyond grunts and commands. But as their medal hopes rise, so does Bohdan’s word count. He’s not made of stone, and being locked outside of Belle’s sunshine is simply no fun. Now their growing closeness may be too hot to dismiss—but will it burn down their chance to forge a new future as well?
With so many stories to tell, I’ve decided to self-publish some stories that are not likely to attract publisher interest.
The first of these is a Holiday novella called The Runaway Christmas Elf.
He wants her to stay forever, she needs to know why she left.
Holly loves Christmas. It’s the one thing about herself she remembers after an accident left her with minor bruises but a major case of amnesia. The last thing she expects is a man who doesn’t celebrate the holiday to walk into Santa’s Domain and claim he knows her. Intimately.
Ori knows why Holly ran. But he wants a second chance, whatever the cost. Whatever his father may think about non-Jewish girls. All he needs is a few days to convince her, remind her, that what they have is worth fighting for. There’s a lot more at stake than she knows and if it means celebrating Christmas, he’s prepared to put everything on the line to make it happen.
When the past comes back along with Holly’s memories, they must decide how far they’ll go…or if they’ll stay…for love.
This is an Australian story set in Brisbane with Australian spelling and language.
I also released a new edition of my RuBY finalist novella Swept Away.
This was originally published in 2016 in the Beautiful Disaster Anthology along with some other fabulous disaster themed romances.
I wrote a companion novella about the sister of Sean Li from Swept Away. It is called Road Trip Baby and a draft copy was on Wattpad. An updated version with an epilogue is now available in a duology with Swept Away.
Blurb: Two stories about finding and losing and finding love again with The One. Siblings Sean and Francesca Li have loved and lost. In these two stories, they have a second chance to work out a happy ending.
A Li Family Duology is available at most outlets.
Road Trip Baby is also tied for first for the Koru Award of Excellence Novella Romance Book of the Year from New Zealand and a Ruby finalist with Romance Writers of Australia.
I have another two short stories in the RWAus Little Gems Sunstone Anthology from 2016 and another short story published in the 2017 Little Gems Onyx Anthology by RWAus. There will also be a short story in the Jade 2018 Little Gems and I have a story that placed third in the Spicy Bites Chains 2018 anthology. There is a print copy set available here.
