My 2019 Favorites!


I keep track of books I read and movies I watch throughout the year in my planner, so I was able to go back through the list (and the ratings I gave them) and pick my favorites.

The cover of Polaris Rising by Jessie Mihalik

I read some great books in 2019, but I think my very favorite was Polaris Rising by Jessie Mihalik. I have the next book in the series, Aurora Blazing, in my Kindle app.

Polaris Rising is space opera at its best, intense and addictive, a story of honor, courage, betrayal, and love. Jessie Mihalik is  an author to watch.”–Ilona Andrews, #1 New York Times bestselling author

My favorite movie?

No question, my favorite movie of 2019 was Snowbound for Christmas! But that’s probably cheating a little bit.

When a high-powered CEO gets trapped by a snowstorm with his ultra-efficient executive assistance he can no longer deny he has feelings for her as more than an employee.

So, my favorite movie NOT based on one of my books?

Movie poster for Murder Mystery

I absolutely loved Murder Mystery, which is a Netflix film, and I lost count of how many times I rewatched it. So funny and smart and silly.

A New York cop and his wife go on a European vacation to reinvigorate the spark in their marriage, but end up getting framed and on the run for the death of an elderly billionaire.

And while writing this, I’m watching my first movie of 2020: Mr. Right! I love Anna Kendrick like crazy.

One Christmas Eve Release Day, Movie News & More!

The season of holiday romances is upon us! And this year, I’ll be celebrating not only with a Christmas novella, but a movie! I’m so excited about both, but let’s start with my second Cedar Street novella, One Christmas Eve, which is available today!

ONE CHRISTMAS EVE is a must-read for contemporary romance fans. — Fresh Fiction 

They couldn’t be more different. Or more perfect for each other.

New York Times bestselling author Shannon Stacey returns with a warm and cozy opposites-attract Christmas story.

Zoe Randall is busy living her life as she damn well pleases. She’s back in her favorite town, her divorce in her rearview mirror, and living out her childhood dream of running a bookstore with her cousin. She has no interest in the uptight nerd who opened his boring-ass business next to her shop…until he complains about one of her sexy window displays.

Then it’s game on.

Preston Wheeler knows he takes life a little too seriously. But when the saucy bookseller next door starts pushing his buttons, he can feel that changing. Beautiful, vivacious Zoe challenges him in all the best ways, and soon he’s pushing her buttons right back: teasing and flirting all the way through the holiday season.

As Preston loosens up and Zoe is treated to the man behind the suit (particularly his forearms), she realizes she’s more interested than she cares to admit. And Preston comes to see the beauty—the absolute delight—in adding Zoe’s bright splashes of color to his once very black-and-white existence.

This book is approximately 34,000 words

Kindle | Apple Books | Nook | Kobo | Google Play | Harlequin

(Paperback and audio book editions are not available at this time. I know this disappoints some readers, but it’s not in my control and if that changes, I’ll let everybody know.)

 “This story is filled with humor, steamy scenes and Christmas fun. …a truly delightful Christmas romance.” — Harlequin Junkie



The fabulous Brain Power Studio turned my novella, Snowbound With The CEO into a movie for this holiday season! Snowbound for Christmas will air on UPtv on Sunday, December 15th at 7:00 ET! It’ll be airing on Super Channel in Canada, but I don’t have the listing information yet. I’ll be sending an announcement when I have all the information, but save the date!

And if you want to read Snowbound with the CEO before you watch the movie, it’s available now from:

Kindle | Apple Books | Nook | Kobo | Google Play | Harlequin

It’s also available in audio from iTunes and Audible (and it looks like it’s part of the Audible Escape package!)


And more good news! My hockey romance, Here We Go, is heading into the final stages of production and will be available very soon! I know it’s been a bit of a wait for those who read A Second Shot, but it kept being put on the back burner by contracted work. But it’s not on the back burner anymore!

Harlequin is working on the title and cover for the first book in my Blackberry Bay trilogy, which will release in July from Special Edition, so hopefully I’ll be able to share that soon. And there are also other fun things in the works, so keep checking my website or social media for updates! In the meantime, I hope you enjoy One Christmas Eve!

Happy reading!

ONE SUMMER WEEKEND is available today!

Many of you know that I love writing Christmas novellas, and I’ve published one almost every holiday season of my career. 2019 will have a holiday novella, but I also wanted to write a fun, sexy summer romance set on Cape Cod. It’s a setting that’s close to my heart (home) and writing Noah and Carly’s story was so much fun! Best friends! A fake relationship! Only one bed! It’s definitely a favorite of all the novellas I’ve written, and I hope you enjoy it!

New York Times bestselling author Shannon Stacey delivers the feel-good beach read you’ve been waiting for.

Best friends. A fake relationship. And only one bed.

Noah Stafford loves his life—his happy, single life. So what if he made up a fake girlfriend to stop his boss’s matchmaking? He kept things close to the truth—Carly really does have long, sexy legs and a killer sense of humor. She just happens to be his best friend. His wicked awesome and completely platonic best friend.

But now his boss is having a destination wedding, and Noah is expected to attend…with Carly, his girlfriend.

Carly Randall has no interest in living out a rom-com plot. But Noah is her best friend, so she agrees to help. Still, once they arrive on Cape Cod, she can’t explain the sudden butterflies she feels when he looks at her that way. Or why she doesn’t mind when Noah’s hands stray a little south of her back.

What happens on the Cape stays on the Cape.

Except not really, not at all, and once their sexy faux-cation is over, Noah and Carly return to a reality where everything’s changed. Going for it would mean risking their friendship…but forgetting how good they were together just isn’t an option.

Many readers have asked me if ONE SUMMER WEEKEND will be available in paperback or audiobook editions. As of now, there are no plans to make it available in paperback, as it’s a novella. While I would love for my publisher to package the two novellas together, I don’t have any control over that. As for audiobook, I don’t know. Carina Press novella are often released in audiobook, but I don’t know if ONE SUMMER WEEKEND will be produced. I’ll keep checking, though!

I hope you enjoy ONE SUMMER WEEKEND, and stay turned for more news coming in the near future, including the cover for ONE CHRISTMAS EVE, a release date (finally) for HERE WE GO, and more information on my upcoming BLACKBERRY BAY series with Harlequin Special Edition.
