Coming Soon – Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 2

Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 2, including books 4 to 6 of the contemporary romance series by Deborah Cooke

In the Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 2, two more partners in the successful Manhattan fitness club fall in love, and heal from the wounds of the past. Plus there are weddings and a baby!

In Just One Hometown Hero, Cassie returns to the town she couldn’t wait to leave and makes up for lost opportunity with her high school crush and bad boy, Reid. Reid can’t resist an invitation from the woman who was always off-limits and soon Cassie wants more than a weekend—but Reid doesn’t believe in forever anymore. Can Cassie change his mind?.

In the novella, Two Wedding & A Baby, the team from F5F gather to celebrate new partnerships. Cassie and Reid’s wedding is interrupted by an early arrival, then Haley and Damon launch their future together.

In Just One Second Chance, Theo decides to move on and forget the one who got away. Just as he steps up to challenge Kyle in a contest between the east and west coast clubs, Lyssa reappears in his life, bringing the complications and passion that has haunted him for years. Can they make their second chance work or will the revelation of Lyssa’s secrets make a future together impossible?

The Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 2 includes the next three stories in the series: Just One Hometown Hero (Cassie and Reid), Two Weddings and a Baby, and Just One Second Chance (Theo and Lyssa). Return to Flatiron Five Fitness for three more heartfelt and steamy contemporary romances!

Coming in June 2022.

November Update

November was another busy month. I’ve given up thinking that things are ever going to slow down! Let’s take a look at what was completed.

New Release

Just the Wrong Twin, Sonia and Nate’s book, was published this month. Yay! I’m glad to have this one out in the world – and to see such wonderful reviews for it, too.

This means the plot bunnies are loose and I’m scribbling story ideas all over the place. I’ll tell you more about those as they come to fruition. For the moment, there are pre-orders for what’s in the works.

Pre-Orders

There are three pre-orders for upcoming contemporary romances: Aidan’s book, Just A Small Town Romance, which is book one of my upcoming contemporary romance series, the Heroes of Harte’s Harbor; When Annika Met Thom is the 10th and (at this point) final romance in the Flatiron Five Fitness series, coming in April; The Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 1 is the first series bundle and will publish in December. I’ve also got the pre-order up for The Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 2, coming in June. The third bundle will publish next December. You can find the links for all of them on the F5F Boxed Set page.

Claire has three pre-orders right now: first, there’s The Hunter and the Heiress, book two of my Blood Brothers series of medieval Scottish romances. In March, the fourth and final book in the Brides of North Barrows series of Regency romance novellas, A Most Inconvenient Earl, will be published. There’s an upcoming bundle, the Brides of North Barrows Boxed Set, which will publish in August in ebook and trade paperback, too. This one was put together early because I saw this cover art and just fell in love. It’s perfect for Sophia and Lucien, who earn their HEA at Samhain.

Then there are dragons. 🙂 I have a huge new bundle publishing today which includes the entire Dragonfire series, called (surprise!) Dragonfire: The Complete Series. I just love this cover! There’s also a new bundle of series starters coming in December called Dragons First, specially priced at just 99¢. (‘Tis the season that I think about bundles.) And the next DragonFate paranormal romance, Dragon’s Wolf, is up for pre-order, too.

Translations

Once again, I had several new translations published in November. Let’s have a look at a summary:

In Spanish, we’re continuing with Flatiron Five Fitness and have started The True Love Brides—in November, I published Just One Second Chance and The Highlander’s Curse in Spanish editions. I’m also publishing Dragon’s Heart in Spanish right now – it’s processing at the portals.

The Next F5F Book

The next Flatiron Five Fitness book is the last one I have planned for now. When Annika Met Thom should be a short story or a novella, but it might be a long novella – I’m not very good at writing short. We may come back to the fitness club in future, but first we’ll go to Harte’s Harbor, beginning next summer. When Annika Met Thom will be available in April and the pre-order is up now at some portals.


When Annika Met Thom, book ten of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Once upon a time, at a fledgling fitness club in Manhattan, an architect arrived to supervise the installation of the rock-climbing wall that would make the club a famous destination. She brought her ferrets, intending to stay with her fiancé and start their life together. Unfortunately, Leo had moved into his new girlfriend’s place, leaving his roommate Thom to deliver the bad news. They make a deal to share the apartment while she’s in town. Thom thinks it’ll be fine so long as his dog doesn’t eat her ferrets. That sounds good until Annika begins to organize everything, including him—until he discovers they have to work together, too. Their romance was the basis of the legend at F5F about finding love at the club.

On the eve of exchanging their vows at the newly re-opened and thriving fitness club, Annika and Thom share the story of their partnership of opposites, an unlikely romance resulting from a most inconvenient arrangement.

Coming April 19, 2022.

Pre-order available at some portals.

October Update

October seems to have flown by for me. Let’s take a look at what was completed.

Pre-Orders

There are three pre-orders for new titles that I told you about last month: Aidan’s book, Just A Small Town Romance, which is book one of my upcoming contemporary romance series, the Heroes of Harte’s Harbor; the next DragonFate Novel, Dragon’s Wolf, coming next spring, which is Arach and Wynter’s book; and book 2 in my Blood Brothers series by Claire Delacroix—The Hunter & the Heiress, coming in January.

I’ve also started to add pre-orders for Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Sets. There will be three in all (at least that’s the current plan) and the first will be available in December. The Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 1 includes Just One Fake Date, Just One More Time and Just One Night Together. That pre-order is up now for December delivery. The Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 2 will be published in the spring: it includes Just One Hometown Hero, Two Weddings & a Baby and Just One Second Chance but I haven’t loaded the pre-order yet. I’ll get that done in November. You can read about the bundles on their new page, F5F Boxed Sets.

Claire also has a pre-order up for March for the fourth and final book in the Brides of North Barrows series of Regency romance novellas, A Most Inconvenient Earl. I had a lot of fun with Sebastian and Eurydice – their banter was great, and I just loved how she challenged his assumptions.

So, I have new releases scheduled for January, March, May and July of 2022, and F5F bundles coming in December 2021, June 2022 and December 2022. I’m hoping to publish the next Blood Brothers medieval romance in September 2022, and Harte’s Harbor #2 in November 2022. That will make for a busy year but I’m excited about all those stories.

Just the Wrong Twin, book nine of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

I pushed back the publication on Sonia and Nate’s story, Just the Wrong Twin, to November, as timing was getting tight. There were a couple of reasons for this: first, Sonia is a very private character and it took her a while to tell me her story. When she did, it trashed pretty much all my plans for the book. I’ve learned to trust characters when they do this, even though it’s inconvenient, and I’m really pleased with how this book has come together. We’re on track for November publication and I think you’ll love this story as much as I do.

I also was a bit delayed getting to Sonia and Nate because I wrote two Regency romance novellas this summer that weren’t on my schedule. The initial plan was for one novella to jump queue, but it ended up being two. I had an unexpected opportunity to participate in a multi-author anthology, which is always great promotion. I didn’t have a story to fit the Regency Christmas theme, though—A Duke By Any Other Name was committed to a different anthology—so I wrote the next story in the series, A Baron for All Seasons, which did not want to be a Christmas story. (Those characters…) That meant I was in for book four, A Most Inconvenient Earl, which is the story included in the anthology. It also means that the Brides of North Barrows series is completed, which is happy news all around.


New Releases

Twelve Lords for Christmas, a Regency romance holiday anthology

Claire had a new release in October. Twelve Lords for Christmas is that Regency romance Christmas anthology. It includes A Most Inconvenient Earl as well as eleven other holiday romances by bestselling authors.

From sexy earls to holiday ghosts, second chances to false engagements, find your Christmas cheer in these twelve sweet-to-spicy historical romance tales from bestselling and award-winning authors! The lord you’ve been looking for might be just a page-turn away…

Also for Claire, I enrolled more of her medieval romances in Kindle Unlimited this month. The exceptions are the Brides of North Barrows series and the Blood Brothers series, but everything else is in KU.


Translations

Once again, I had several new translations published in October. Let’s have a look at a summary:

In Spanish, we’re continuing with Flatiron Five Fitness and have started The True Love Brides—in October, I published Two Weddings & a Baby and The Renegade’s Heart in Spanish editions. I also published The Crusader’s Heart in German in October.

And it’s already November…

F5F Boxed Sets

The Flatiron Five Fitness series will take a pause after ten books, which means it’s time for boxed sets. There will be three of them, and the first one is up for pre-order for December delivery. Number two will be published in May and number three will be published next December. The last book in the series is When Annika Met Thom, which will be a novella and (fingers crossed) will be published in Q1 2022. Then we’re off to Harte’s Harbor and a new series!

I’m still thinking of coming back to F5F, but we’ll get the HH books done first.


Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 1, including the first three contemporary romances in the series by Deborah Cooke

Straight out of college, five friends launched a fitness club together, hoping to make it the hottest spot to work out in Manhattan. Ten years later, they’ve succeeded beyond their hopes, partly because of a rumor among the membership that F5F is the place to fall in love. The founding partners have been immune, at least so far.

In Just One Fake Date, Tyler needs a fake date to his sister’s wedding to keep interfering relatives in their lane. He’s surprised when Shannyn, a classmate from college, offers him an unexpected deal. But one night with Shannyn isn’t nearly enough for Tyler—can he convince her to make their relationship a real one?

In Just One More Time, Lauren calls Kyle when she finds herself single again and in need of satisfaction. She knows Kyle isn’t interested in commitment, but not that Kyle considers her to be off-limits. In fact, Kyle fell for Lauren years before—which means he can’t turn her down. But can he convince her to take a second chance on love?

In Just One Night Together, Haley is fascinated by the powerful man who comes to visit his mom at the hospital, and not just because of his gift with therapeutic massage. The curious nurse asks for a lesson and gets a whole lot more from this former soldier. Can Haley provide the healing touch Damon needs to believe in the future again?

Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 1 includes the first three books in the series: Just One Fake Date (Tyler and Shannyn), Just One More Time (Kyle and Lauren) and Just One Night Together (Damon and Haley). Come to the hottest fitness club in Manhattan and fall in love!

Coming December 28, 2021.
