Holiday Romance Under the Northern Lights!

 

Under the Northern Lights, Book 4 in the Once Again series, is available now! You might have noticed that my heroes and heroines are getting older! This time I’ve stepped into the sixties! Gina has just turned sixty and Blake is sixty-five. And gosh, I do find him very sexy. I believe in the old adage that we’re not getting older, we’re getting better. Under the Northern Lights is a holiday romance set at Christmastime in the San Francisco Bay Area and the north of Norway. Many of you know I have relatives in Norway, and my husband and I have visited there often. So this is my homage to Norway! Enjoy!


Love under the northern lights at Christmas? Is there anything more romantic?


It's the second holiday season alone for 60-year-old widow Gina Maxwell. Though her grown kids are insisting she sell the too-big-for-one family home and her friends are telling her that 18 months after her husband’s death, it's time to start dating, Gina isn’t sure she’s ready for any of that. That is, until Blake Dunnell saves her from being hit by a bus while she’s Christmas shopping in San Francisco. This sexy silver fox is unattached, gorgeous, and mysterious—the perfect combination to jumpstart her dormant love life.


When Blake invites her on a Christmas trip to see the northern lights in Norway—and she tells him she can’t wait to go—pandemonium breaks out all around her. Her kids want to know how she could desert them at Christmas and accuse her of forgetting all about their father. Her best friends tell her she’s crazy to go away with a man she barely knows. But something in Blake’s eyes tells her that if she doesn’t take this trip with him, she’ll regret it forever.


Will this be the holiday of a lifetime? Or a disaster in the making?


Take a trip Under the Northern Lights and let yourself be dazzled in this later-in-life, second-chance holiday romance. Read an excerpt on the website.

Romance to get your feet tapping!

 

Dancing in Ireland, the next Once Again story, releases today!

If you’ve read the dedications in Dreaming of Provence and Wishing in Rome, you know from the dedications that I recently lost my mom and her very good friend within a month of each other. I wrote the first draft of Dancing in Ireland before Mom passed, and it’s been waiting there for me to edit. This book is so special to my heart because there’s so much of my mother in it, from the phrase “I’m a bit peckish” to games of Scrabble and Skip-Bo to the Silly Sausage Club. I hope you’ll find the story special too.

Here’s a preview!

When Rose Christopher’s entire world falls apart after losing her mother, her marriage and her home within a matter of weeks, she’s desperate for income and a roof over her head. So Rose takes a job as the live-in caregiver of a feisty 87-year-old widow named Agnes. Surprisingly, Agnes is a delight. Too bad the man who hired Rose seems so cold-hearted and rude.

Or is there far more to him than Rose imagines?

After his divorce, Declan Delaney claims he no longer has a heart. Except when it comes to Agnes. The successful, self-made businessman will do anything for his former grade school teacher, who inspired his lifelong love of learning, including ticking off the most important item on her bucket list—a trip to Ireland where her favorite movie The Quiet Man was filmed. And when he sees how Agnes and Rose bond, he knows hiring Rose was another excellent decision.

So then why is he feeling more than just professional satisfaction when it comes to Rose? And why can’t he ignore the way her quiet humor, caring manner, and the promise of her sweet, kissable lips keep drawing him back again and again?

With Rose and Declan whisking her off for the trip of a lifetime, Agnes packs her matchmaker hat in her suitcase. Can she help two people with mothballed hearts learn to dance together in Ireland?

When Wishes Come True!

Wishing in Rome, the next Once Again story, is releasing today! Rome is such a fascinating city, so much history. And I loved all those movies and series like I, Claudius and Rome and Gladiator about the ancient Romans. You’ll find Dana and Marshall love them, too, in Wishing in Rome. Here’s a preview!




It’s never too late for wishes to come true…


Dana and Carol, best friends their whole lives, planned the trip of a lifetime to Rome. They'd plotted every detail, from touring the Colosseum to throwing coins in the Trevi Fountain and making wishes. When Carol dies suddenly, Dana is bereft—even more than when her husband left her for another woman. Then a bequest from Carol arrives, telling her to take the trip to Rome they’d planned together. Dana sets out on the journey, determined to rediscover the woman she used to be and find the woman she wants to become. Carol’s final instruction is to make a wish in the Trevi Fountain. But how do you make an impossible wish for the only thing you truly want— to have your best friend back with you?


Marshall Garrison is all business, and so is this trip to Rome. But a chance meeting with Dana Shaw in the Colosseum changes everything. He doesn’t believe in forever-after love, but still, there’s something exceptional about this brave divorcĂ©e, gallantly traveling alone. He sets out to be her guide and her friend, but when he discovers her poignant story, he wants more— to help her believe in wishing for the impossible. And in the process, he might even remember that business is only a substitute for the things he used to wish for...


A later in life holiday romance that will take you away from it all...

Your Next Beach Read

It’s been a while! I hope you’re all healthy and happy and that things are looking up after all that we went through in 2020!


I’ve been working on a brand new series! Which is why you haven’t seen anything new from me a few months. I wanted to get at least three of the books written for you so I could put them out back to back in June, July, and August for your summer reading pleasure!


A little about the new series. After the shutdowns we all experienced with COVID, I wanted to give readers an escape. So these stories are destination romance, vacation romance, wish-fulfillment romance. I want to take you away to foreign places, treat you to gorgeous locales, a little escapist romance for your pleasure. All my heroes and heroines are over the age of forty, so their experiences are later in life, second chance romances.


Up first is Dreaming of Provence. It’s a story that will tug at your heartstrings, yet one filled with hope.



A deathbed promise could open the door to a promise of love.

When Julia Bellerman loses her husband to cancer, she’s cast adrift. For ten years, her whole life has been about caring for him. Now, before she can move on with her life, she must fulfill her husband’s deathbed wish to scatter his ashes in Provence. And to let Ryder Wilding go with her.


Ryder, her husband’s best friend. And the man she fell in love with a lifetime ago.


Ryder’s first mistake was walking away from Julia. His second mistake was marrying the wrong woman—a marriage that ended in a nasty divorce. He’s spent all the years since wrestling with the guilt of loving his best friend’s wife. Now Ryder must take Julia to Provence to scatter her husband’s ashes. He thought losing his best friend was painful, but keeping his hands off Julia will be the hardest thing he’s ever done.


Can love overcome grief and guilt to give them a second chance?
