The iBooks sales starts today and ends the 27th of November.

This digital boxed set includes all four books in The Coxwell Series. Three brothers and a sister find themselves on the adventure to romance and happily-ever-after in this bestselling series of contemporary romances and romantic comedies by Deborah Cooke.

When Philippa’s high school crush turns up on her doorstep, she knows better than to trust the bad boy who broke her heart. Nick proves that he’s determined to fix his past mistakes in Third Time Lucky – does Philippa dare to give him another chance?

In Double Trouble, self-reliant Maralys breaks her own rules to help out her twin sister’s husband and kids when her sister walks out forever. If it’s because she has a soft spot for James—or unfinished business with him—she’s not going to admit it. But James is better at understanding Maralys than she realizes, and he soon realizes that their second chance at love is their best shot at happiness.

In One More Time, Matt walks out of his marriage to Leslie, his mother-in-law unexpectedly moves in while he visits an old girlfriend, their teenage daughter shows even more attitude and a pair of resident poodles add mayhem to Leslie’s quest for the magic that once made their marriage work. Can they find the balance again?

In All or Nothing, bad boy Zach meets a cute waitress who isn’t easily charmed and (even)  turns him down. A cancer survivor, Jen knows better than to get involved with guys who will only disappear when it matters. When her mother decides to play matchmaker, though, Jen decides that Zach would make a great fake date, only to discover that he has a lot more to offer than a good time.

The boxed set includes Third Time Lucky, Double Trouble, One More Time, All or Nothing and also an excerpt from Simply Irresistible, book #1 of the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances.

NaNoWriMo 2017

National Novel Writing MonthI often participate in NaNoWriMo (which is National Novel Writing Month) and this year is no exception.

The fact is that every month of my life is NaNo, since the goal of NaNo is to write 50K words in a month. That’s not a novel in my corner of the fiction market, but it’s about half of one. Most months, I write new content at this rate, so November isn’t anything special. I’m using working on multiple projects at a time, as well, although I only list one on the NaNo website.

Doing NaNoWriMo is a good way to cross check my productivity, though. I tend to keep track of my page count on Post-It notes on my desk, and I do update my wall calendar each week with my progress—right alongside my goals for the week. Keeping track on the NaNo site makes me feel more accountable, and it also makes me more aware of what else is placing demands on my time. What’s interfering with writing? What am I doing instead? NaNo provides a little productivity cross-check for me each year, and helps me to refine my process.

In the Midnight Hour, book #3 of the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeThis year, for example, I’ve written 13,000 words through Saturday. (Still taking Sundays off.) That’s not bad, but it’s less than I’d hoped to achieve in four days. I aim for 3K to 5K per day of new word count. The fact is that there was been a LOT of publishing stuff happening behind the scenes last week, so I wasn’t even starting to write until after 2PM. The problem is that mornings are my most productive time.

This week, I’m not going to check my email until lunch.

One of the speakers at NINC made an interesting comment that has stuck with me, that email is a means for other people to offload jobs to you. His strategy was to do what was important to him first, then see what other people wanted to hand off to him. It’s good advice. I just have to break my habit of checking email while I have my second cup of coffee. 🙂

You can find me on NaNo here.

More Kindle Unlimited

My experiment with Kindle Unlimited is going very well, so I’m adding some more content to the program.

This month, my Jewels of Kinfairlie series is also moving into KU. This includes The Beauty Bride, The Rose Red Bride, The Snow White Bride, The Ballad of Rosamunde, and the Jewels of Kinfairlie Boxed Set.

The Beauty Bride, first book in the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixStart the series with The Beauty Bride and meet the family at Kinfairlie.

More cherished than gold are the Jewels of Kinfairlie, and only the worthiest may fight for their love…The Laird of Kinfairlie has unmarried sisters, each a gem in her own right. And he has no choice but to see them all wed in haste.

Lady Madeline’s heart is not for sale…especially not to a notorious outlaw like Rhys FitzHenry. Yet Madeline’s hand has been sold, to none other than this battle-weary warrior with a price on his head. A more dutiful maiden might cede to the Laird’s command and meekly accept her fate, but Madeline has never been obedient. She decides to run away, though she never dreams that Rhys will pursue her.

She does not expect this taciturn man to woo her with fanciful stories, much less that each of his enthralling tales will reveal a scar upon his shielded soul. She never imagines that a man like Rhys could imperil her own heart while revealing so little of his own feelings. When Rhys’ past threatens his future, Madeline takes a leap of faith. She dares to believe him innocent—and risks her own life to pursue a passion more priceless than the rarest gem.

“A lyrical medieval-era romance!”

New Cover for Holly And Drew

As you know, my Christmas romance novella, A Berry Merry Christmas, is available in a digital edition on its own now. I originally thought that a cartoon cover would work for this story, but we had a tough time choosing the image from the available stock.

It took two steps to launch this new cover idea.

First, Debbie Barao told me when we met in Florida how much she loved the story and that it reminded her of a Hallmark movie. What a wonderful compliment, but also one that got me thinking about the cover. Hmm.

Second, I saw that my cover artist, Kim Killion, had done covers for the new Hallmark e-books. You can see the first few on the Hallmark website right here. I love these covers, as they have that Christmas-magic feel that I wanted for Holly’s book. I emailed Kim about changing the cover image and we got to work.

A Berry Merry Christmas, a holiday romance novella by Deborah CookeIt still took time to find the right photographic stock—and many discussions about magic-y bits. We followed a few false leads and ideas that didn’t get us where we needed to be, but the result was worth the effort. I love it to bits and Kim does, too.

A new edition of the novella has been published to all portals with the new cover art. The interior is the same as before, but you can download the new edition to have this cover image on your device.

In the Midnight Hour Pre-Order

In the Midnight Hour, book #3 of the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeIn the Midnight Hour, book #3 of the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances, is now available for pre-order at (almost) all portals. The GooglePlay link will go live on the on-sale date in January.

Damon has a secret…

Every Friday night, the F5 partner who is the quiet powerhouse leaves on the dot of five. Where does he go? What does he do? His partners want to know, but Damon can’t bring himself to share the truth about his mom’s illness. She’s the only family he’s ever known, the anchor in his life, and he can’t imagine how he’ll go on without her. In the middle of the night, when he’s most alone, he wants proof that he’s not completely powerless. He doesn’t expect to find such a willing, or seductive, volunteer.

Haley loves solving mysteries…

Especially ones like the gorgeous guy who visits her favorite patient every Friday night. He must be Natalia’s son, but is he also the model on the billboard for that fitness club downtown? Where did he learn therapeutic massage? Even though she’s a nurse, Haley’s interest in his skill isn’t just professional. She wants to feel those hands on her own skin. Late one night, she takes a chance and asks for a lesson from him, only to learn that she has a hunger for the sensation only Damon can give.

Coming January 25, 2018

There’s a new addition to the F5 team. Meet Chynna, a tattoo artist who first appeared in Dragonfire, in this out-take from Whisper Kiss.

The Nutcracker Reimagined in KU

The Nutcracker Reimagined, a Christmas romance anthologyOur holiday boxed set, The Nutcracker Reimagined, is now a free read for Kindle Unlimited subscribers!

My contribution is a medieval romance called The Mercenary’s Bride. This novella is the first story in the Brides of Inverfyre series. It’s the story of Mhairi, daughter of the Hawk of Inverfyre and his wife Aileen. (The family tree for Ravensmuir and Inverfyre is a free download in my online store, right here.) Mhairi is the middle child of five and the second daughter. She’s a crack shot with a crossbow and a bit of a tomboy, and she’s unafraid to defy her father. Her interest was why the mercenary Quentin was dismissed from Inverfyre, but when he returns, bitter and wounded, Mhairi is the only one who can see his merit. Can her love heal him? I think you can guess, but I hope you’ll join me for their adventure.
