This is my favorite time of year. The heat and humidity are behind us (here in the northern hemisphere), but it’s not yet cold enough to make me complain (too much). There’s an air of festivity, and I love holidays that include eating delicious foods with the people I love the most.
It’s also become a tradition for me to write a Christmas novella, and this year the tradition continues with Holiday With A Twist. I loved writing Croy and Leigh’s romance, and there’s also a pug who stole my heart.
“Perfect length novella and a truly awesome story makes this a must read Christmas story.” – A Night Owl Reviews Top Pick!
After a messy breakup, Leigh Holloway is ready to start her life over. Until her parents put the family home on the market and call her back for one final, memory-making Christmas. The last thing she wants to do is deprive her mom of the perfect holiday, so she’ll lie her way through the visit and worry about her future in the New Year. Too bad the only bar in town is owned by a guy she seriously wronged in high school.
Leigh’s best friend broke Croy Dawson’s heart, and Croy knows it was Leigh’s fault. They’ve never liked each other, but Croy isn’t cruel: he’d never turn away a pretty woman in need of some family-Christmas fortification. He doesn’t expect her to drink just enough candy-cane martinis to tell him her secrets—and he definitely doesn’t expect to get caught up in her holiday madness.
Despite the surprising love and laughter, Croy and Leigh can’t escape the truth: he can’t walk away from his family obligations and she has a life and career to reboot. But anything is possible if your holiday comes with a twist…

I can’t believe it’s the end of August! My older son is back on campus for his last year of undergraduate studies at his university and my younger son started his sophomore year of high school yesterday. That means I spent yesterday dancing in my empty house and eating junk food I don’t have to share, but today I want to share my new release. Homecoming, the third book in my Boys of Fall trilogy, is available now! With school back in session and autumn right around the corner for New England, it’s a great time for a Homecoming story.
The New York Times bestselling author of Defending Hearts returns to small-town New Hampshire where a substitute football coach and a guidance counselor tackle love.
They were the golden boys of fall: Stewart Mills High School’s legendary championship football team. Fourteen years later, they’re back to relive their glory, save the team—and find themselves again . . .
Sam Leavitt has returned home to Stewart Mills with one goal: to fill in for Coach McDonnell and lead the high school football team to the championship. He doesn’t have time for distractions or commitments—but he’s unable to resist falling for the sexy guidance counselor he shared a hot night with months ago.
Jen Cooper knows what she’s looking for long-term, and it’s not Sam—even though the night they shared was explosive. Now, with Sam back in town and working by her side, picking up where they left off is too great a temptation to resist. But before long their fun fling is looking like a future together. And as the championship approaches, Sam is faced with a big decision that will either break them apart—or help them find their way home.
