The Home They Built is out now!

Happy 2021! As some of you know, I’m a planner nerd and today’s exciting because the first day of a month falling on the first day of the week (I have a Monday start calendar) is the best! I’m also excited because today’s the digital release day for The Home They Built, which means it’s all available in all formats now!

If you’re looking to kick off your February with a fun and romantic read, this book has a hot guy pretending to be a handyman to help out his beloved Gram, a woman who’s hiding why she’s really in Blackberry Bay, and the renovation of a house they’re pretending is an inn. Sparks and secrets!

There are no blueprints for this unique renovation in the latest Blackberry Bay novel from New York Times bestselling author Shannon Stacey.

Will their secrets stay hidden when the cameras start rolling?

There’s nothing Finn Weaver won’t do for his incorrigible grandmother, including pose as a live-in handyman for the TV reno show Relic Rehab. Host Anna Beckett knows good and well the Weaver house has never been a functioning inn, but taking the project got her to Blackberry Bay…the only place she’ll ever find answers about her own family. Keeping big secrets in a small town is enough of a challenge—can Finn and Anna’s romance survive the truth?

I’ve already been asked several times about whether The Home They Built is the end of the Blackberry Bay series, and the answer is…I’m not sure. It was meant to be a trilogy, along with the two Cedar Street digital-only novellas: One Summer Weekend and One Christmas Eve. (Cedar Street is a street in Blackberry Bay.) I’m working on a new series that’s similar to the Blackberry Bay books (though a little funnier, for you Kowalski fans in the crowd), but I haven’t decided if it’s actually the same town or not. I’ll definitely let you know as soon I make that decision!

Besides a fun new series, I’ve been working on a couple of novellas I’ll be releasing this year. The first I’ll be telling you about in a couple of weeks, but I can say that it’s a marriage-in-jeopardy story about two people trapped in their summer cabin together by a spring storm. And the second is a Christmas novella I didn’t get done in time to release in 2020 because…well, 2020. I’ll include more info about it in my next email, but I think those of you who’ve asked for a happy ending for Nola (a secondary character in Falling For Max are going to be excited!

More news soon, and happy reading!

A 99-Cent Sale and a Christmas Novella Round-up!

I’ve made Here We Go 99 cents for the rest of the year! This is one of my very favorites of my books!

A hockey star.

His rival’s sister.

What could go wrong?

 

Looking for a shorter Christmas read? I have a few!

In the Spirit: My first Christmas novella! When a holiday-loving ghost tries to rock around the Christmas tree with a Grinchy guest, will they both wind up on the “naughty” list?

https://shannonstacey.com/books/in-the-spirit/

Holiday Sparks: Definitely a reader favorite! This fun, sexy Christmas romance about a woman housesitting for her parents and having to call an electrician (who just happened to have a huge crush on her in school) is probably the most recommended of my holiday novellas.

https://shannonstacey.com/books/holiday-sparks/

Mistletoe & Margaritas: One of my personal favorites. A fun Christmas story, but you might need a few tissues as this widow starts falling for her deceased husband’s best friend. If you’re looking for a romance about two people falling in love without diminishing the love they had for her husband, this novella’s for you. I listened to “Tomorrow” by Chris Young on repeat while writing this one!

https://shannonstacey.com/books/mistletoe-margaritas/

Snowbound with the CEO: It’s a movie! How exciting is that? The movie title is SNOWBOUND FOR CHRISTMAS and it’s available in DVD (I found it at my Walmart!) and it’s streaming on Amazon Prime this month!

Her Holiday Man: A single mother and a widower with no interest in love or Christmas are thrown together for the holidays and (with a little help from his mom) learn to embrace the joy in life again.

https://shannonstacey.com/books/her-holiday-man/

A Fighting Chance: When Adeline runs into the MMA fighter who got away (because her family drove him away), they decide to burn off the lingering chemistry between them, but it’s not that easy. (It never is, is it?)

https://shannonstacey.com/books/a-fighting-chance/

Holiday With a Twist: A Christmas novella inspired by a lovely home converted to a pub in my town! (But the sexy bartender is entirely fictional.) Leigh and Croy have some history and he’s the last person she wanted to run into when she returned to her hometown for the holidays. But with her family on her last nerve, she needs a cocktail and Croy’s behind the bar. There’s also a cute pug, as well as a situation with a painting of a barn inspired by the painting of a barn my husband owns, despite my objections.

Hold Her Again: I hadn’t planned to write a Christmas novella that year, but I saw the cover for Chris Young’s Christmas album and the story popped into my head and refused to be shaken. When country star Jace Morrow returns to his hometown, he’s forced to face not only his past, but the woman whose heart he broke. It’s emotional, but also fun and Christmas-y, and unlike most of my New England-set novellas, this story is set in a fictional town in Missouri based on a small town that’s close to my heart.

A Second Shot: A very short novella originally published in a charity anthology, it’s a second-chance, hockey romance and a 99-cent sequel to HERE WE GO, so right now, you can get both stories for less than two dollars!

https://shannonstacey.com/books/a-second-shot/

 

One Christmas Eve: I love this holiday romance! A seemingly uptight guy and a free-spirited, sexy woman butt heads and there’s Christmas and books and sticky notes and it’s so much fun!

https://shannonstacey.com/books/one-christmas-eve/

Whew, that’s a lot of Christmas! And for a slightly longer holiday read, don’t miss my current release from Harlequin Special Edition, Their Christmas Baby Contract! It’s also available in audiobook, if you want some company while you wrap and bake!

Return to Blackberry Bay and grab Their Christmas Baby Contract today!

It’s November! Our stunning New Hampshire fall foliage has mostly passed and we’re starting to think about snow. And the holidays! Longtime readers know I love Christmas romances—both as a reader and as an author—so I’ve been looking forward to the release of THEIR CHRISTMAS BABY CONTRACT! The second book in the Blackberry Bay series releases today, but the paperback editions hit the shelves on October 27th, so keep reading for a photo of me visiting my Walmart with the cute mask my mom bought me, my foggy glasses and my too-long bangs.

Striking the deal was the easy part.

He’ll help her make a beautiful baby.

Brady Nash is handsome and anti marriage. And with IVF completely out of her financial reach, Reyna Bishop is running out of time to have the child she so very much wants. Theirs is a practical baby-making deal: no emotion, no expectation, no ever-after. They’ll even “date” through Christmas to silence their hometown gossips. It’s foolproof…till the time she spends with Brady and his warm, loving family leaves Reyna wanting more than a baby…

Their Christmas Baby Contract is available in paperback, digital and audiobook today!
