Going to his fourth sister’s wedding without a date will only encourage his female relations to “help” him find romance. Ty’s ready to wait for Ms. Right and is busy enough as the finance guy for F5. When he learns that the cute woman who works in his building is in the same predicament, he’s sure that fake dates are the perfect solution. She agrees, but Ty soon realizes that there’s far more to Amy than meets the eye. When she enrolls in a bondage class at F5, he finds himself taking a disguise as dangerous Matteo to keep her safe. How far will he go to win the heart of a woman he finds…simply irresistible?

Amy Thornton can’t get enough…
Amy can’t resist another romance about a hot hero and the woman who steals his heart away with naughty games. When she decides to write her own book, she knows she needs to do research. Her fake date, Tyler, is gorgeous but too nice to play naughty games—unlike Matteo, Amy’s mysterious personal instructor at F5, who plays them so well. When Amy has to choose, will she pick the nice guy or the promise of the forbidden pleasures she finds…simply irresistible?

Review for Some Guys at The Reading Cafe

Some Guys Have All the Luck, #4 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeThere’s a new review posted at The Reading Cafe today for Some Guys Have All the Luck.

Here’s an excerpt:
“The premise is heart breaking, emotional and entertaining; the characters are broken, animated and embittered; the romance is sensual, spicy and hot. SOME GUYS HAVE ALL THE LUCK is a raw, gritty and sensitive story where, ala Thomas Wolfe, it’s best not to go home again!”

You can read the entire review right here.

Thanks Sandy!

New Review for Snowbound

Snowbound, #1 of the Secret Heart Ink series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeDebbie Haupt has featured Snowbound on her review blog this week.

Here’s part of her review:
“Cooke’s Snowbound is the debut in her Secret Heart Ink series, a companion/spin-off of Flatiron Five. A short and sweet with plenty of heat friends-to-lovers tale featuring a heroine who doesn’t believe in Happy Ever Afters and a hero who’s willing to take one, two or several for the team to prove her wrong. The couple are genuine, Spencer a farm-to-table chef and Olivia is an entomologist who studies the diminishing bee population and readers will get to know them intimately through some fabulous pillow talk during an epic snowstorm. The concept of both the series and this story is intriguing and fresh, the love scenes are smokin’ hot with tons of emotion and the way Spencer won Olivia’s heart through passion and food was delectable! Get ready for a repast good for body and soul!

Thanks Deb! You can read the entire review right here.

24 Books

This year has been a really busy one for me in terms of publishing, but I didn’t realize how busy until I sat down and made a list last weekend. I love lists and this is yet more evidence why.

I’ve been publishing a LOT of books this year. Here’s the list so far:

One Knight Enchanted, book #1 of the Sayerne series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix1. One Knight Enchanted
This was a revision of an older title (originally published in 1998 as Enchanted) which I thought would be quick and easy. Instead, it turned out to be such a huge editorial process that it would have been easier to just write an entirely new book.

2. In the Midnight Hour
Book #3 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romance. This is Damon and Haley’s book.

3. A Duke By Any Other Name
This is book #2 in my Brides of North Barrows series of Regency romances. It was originally published in the Christmas at Castle Keyvnor anthology Charmed at Christmas, but I published it on its own in March.

Wyvern's Angel, book #9 of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke4. Wyvern’s Angel
Book #9 in my Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances.

5. Kiss of Fire
A new edition of the paranormal romance and book #1 of the Dragonfire Novels. Again, I thought this would be an easy update, but it was more work than I expected – plus there were seven more titles to be prepped for publication. The titles that were already available all had to be updated, as well.

6. Kiss of Fury
A new edition of book #2 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances.

Kiss of Fate, #3 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke7. Kiss of Fate
A new edition of book #3 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances.

8. Winter Kiss
A new edition of book #4 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances.

9. Whisper Kiss
A new edition of book #6 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances.

10. Darkfire Kiss
A new edition of book #7 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances.

Flashfire, #7 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke11. Flashfire
A new edition of book #8 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances.

12. Ember’s Kiss
A new edition of book #9 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances.

13. Snowbound
Book #1 of Secret Heart Ink, a contemporary romance series that is also set in the Flatiron Five world.

14. Spring Fever
Book #2 of Secret Heart Ink.

Some Guys Have All the Luck, #4 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke15. Some Guys Have All the Luck
This is book #4 of my Flatiron Five series of contemporary romance.

That’s where I’m at so far. Some of these haven’t been published yet, but they’re all locked and loaded at the portals and thus are off my desk (and off my To Do list).

Still to come for this year are the following titles:

16. Nimue’s Gift
A short story set in the Dragons of Incendium world, and #10 in that series, coming later this month (along with the print edition of Wyvern’s Angel).

17. Flying Blind
This is book #1 of the Dragon Diaries, a paranormal YA trilogy set in the world of the Dragonfire Novels, follows Zoë’s coming of age as the new Wyvern. It’s being republished in a new edition.

Winging It, book #2 of the Dragon Diaries paranormal YA trilogy by Deborah Cooke18. Winging It
This is book #2 of the Dragon Diaries, a paranormal YA trilogy set in the world of the Dragonfire Novels, follows Zoë’s coming of age as the new Wyvern. It’s being republished in a new edition.

19. Blazing the Trail
This is book #3 of the Dragon Diaries, a paranormal YA trilogy set in the world of the Dragonfire Novels, follows Zoë’s coming of age as the new Wyvern. It’s being republished in a new edition.

20. Here Be Dragons: A Dragonfire Companion
A world guide for the Dragonfire Novels, coming in October.

One Hot Summer Night, #3 of the Secret Heart Ink series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke21. One Hot Summer Night
Book #3 of Secret Heart Ink, coming in September. This Gabe and Lexi’s second chance romance.

22. Going to the Chapel
A short story set in the Flatiron Five world and #4 in the series, coming in September. My working title for this is Two Weddings and a Baby, which tells you all you need to know about it.

23. Under the Mistletoe
Book #4 of Secret Heart Ink and Chynna’s story, as well as a Christmas story, coming in October.

24. The Runaway Bride
Book #2 of my Brides of Inverfyre series of medieval Scottish romances and Ross’s story, coming in October.

Phew! This list makes me realize why I feel like I’ve been working all the time! It’s good to have all these books available again, but I’m glad to be moving on to new work. There won’t be 24 releases next year, though!

Pre-order Going to the Chapel

Going to the Chapel, a short story and #5 in the Flatiron Five series by Deborah CookeGoing to the Chapel is a short story and story #5 in the Flatiron Five series. My alternate title was Two Weddings and a Baby, which pretty much tells you what the story is about.

It’s September in Manhattan and the weather is perfect for a wedding – if not two! Cassie and Reid tie the knot with style in this short story, while Haley and Damon take their vows surrounded by friends and family. Will Amy and Tyler’s son arrive in time for the festitivies? Join the F5 crew as they celebrate two weddings, welcome the first child of the partners, and make changes to build the future of their fitness club.

Going to the Chapel takes place after Some Guys Have All the Luck and before Bad Case of Loving You. It also takes place after One Hot Summer Night.

This story will be published September 27.

There’s a Pinterest board for this story right here.

Pre-Order One Hot Summer Night

One Hot Summer Night, #3 of the Secret Heart Ink series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeLexi and Gabe’s book, One Hot Summer Night, is coming September 25 and available for pre-order!

Lexi is haunted by her past…
Lexi can’t seem to move beyond her aching sense of loss after giving up a child for adoption and feels as if her life just stopped ten years ago. She knows that taking Gabe home only makes her feel good for one night, but the more often she does it, the more addictive his touch becomes. Lexi is surprised when Gabe challenges her to face her fears, but honesty is important to him and she shares the story. But as Lexi embarks on a new life with Gabe’s encouragement, she realizes she’s become too reliant on a man who only wants to be her lover, and that Gabe has taught her to want more than he can give.

Gabe wants Lexi in his future…
Eleven years ago, Gabe found the woman of his dreams and spent a perfect night with her – only to wake up alone. He searched for her for years, only to have Lexi walk into his life, the sister of his new partner. He can’t decide if not knowing her location was worse than realizing she doesn’t recognize or remember him, but Gabe is a man who trusts his instincts. He knows that he and Lexi belong together, just as he’s aware that he has to help her heal from a secret wound. He hasn’t dared to hope that Lexi will ever want more than their passionate nights together – when she decides to leave him, Gabe knows that the truth will either be the foundation of their future together or the fact that he kept it secret from her will drive them apart forever.

This is Lexi and Gabriel’s story and a second-chance-at-love romance. You must have guessed that these two had a past together. It just takes one hot night to bring the past to the present all over again.

This story takes place after Some Guys Have All the Luck, and will be available September 25.
