Holiday Romance

Reissue: A Cadence Creek Christmas

A Cadence Creek Christmas is reissued today, which means all 6 of the Cadence Creek stories are now republished! It’s available for kindle and in paperback at

The final three Cadence Creek stories feature the Shepard siblings, and this is Taylor’s story…


Come to Cadence Creek for the wedding of the season…

Event Planner Taylor Shepard makes a point of not organizing Christmas weddings, but she can’t turn down her brother’s request for her first-class services. She leaves her home of Vancouver behind and journeys to Cadence Creek to plan the big event and finds herself falling for the small town’s holiday charm. It doesn’t help that she keeps running into reticent rancher and reluctant groomsman Rhys Bullock—not her type at all. So why can’t she stop thinking about him?

Rhys has seen Taylor’s type before. The bossy city girl will plan the wedding, take in the scenery, and high-tail it back to the west coast as soon as the holiday is over. But as the Christmas spirit begins to take over the town, he glimpses a side of her he never expected. The connection between them is surprising and strong, an unexpected gift Rhys never knew he needed. But how can their romance last beyond the season, when their lives are so far apart?


I don’t know about you, but I actually love reading holiday stories when it’s NOT the season – so go ahead and grab this one now for some feel good romance!

Kindle Monthly Deal: Deck the Halls

Are you looking for a great holiday read but finding your budget a little stretched? (I get it. Between presents and parties and groceries and decorations, December can get a little tight.) Never fear – one of my Christmas books, DECK THE HALLS, is on for half price all month long as a Kindle Monthly Deal! Get it for just $1.49 at Amazon.

I wrote this one after readers kept telling me how much they loved George from Somebody Like You and asking if he would have his own happy ever after. If you like redemption stories, Christmas spirit, and small town holiday settings, you’ll LOVE this one!

Strength, forgiveness, and holiday spirit abound in this Darling, VT Christmas romance with shades of It’s A Wonderful Life.

Amy Merck has been searching for closure about her brother’s death for years, and when she tracks down his brother-in-arms in Darling, she’s sure she’ll finally get the answers she seeks. But George is still dealing with PTSD, and seeing his best friend’s sister reminds him not only of the friend he lost, but the girl he kissed before leaving on that final deployment.

As the holidays draw near, Amy’s kindness and patience reach in and loosen grief’s hold on the veteran’s heart. But why would a successful, beautiful woman like Amy want to be with a man who is still broken and a mere step up from homelessness?

Amy sees how George cares for the people in the cozy little town, and before long she’s lost her heart to the kind, generous warrior. Can she convince the town to show George how loved and valued he is in time for Christmas—and his own holiday miracle?

Three siblings. One ranch. And they all must agree to abide by the terms of their grandfather’s will or Crooked Valley’s future is at risk…

Former soldier Duke Duggan isn’t looking forward to returning to Crooked Valley Ranch…or being forced into taking control of the operation now that his grandfather’s passed on. He’s a soldier, not a cowboy, and he’s feeling mighty out of place until he sees ranch foreman Carrie Coulter, a face from the past.

Carrie’s both relieved and annoyed to see Duke, but when he threatens to sell the ranch, she soon realizes that her livelihood is at stake. Still, nothing will be decided until after Christmas, which means there’s ample time for them to find a solution and explore their sizzling chemistry. Until a fierce winter storm threatens everything…
