Amazon Link for Bad Case of Loving You

Under the Mistletoe, a contemporary Christmas romance and #4 in the Secret Heart Ink series by Deborah CookeTheo and Lyssa’s book will be off to editing this week, which is a wonderful thing. These two have given me a tussle, but I love their book. (Sometimes the fighters are the best stories.) I’ve moving out the publication date to April 19 to give us all a bit more breathing room. Rushing edits is never a good idea. This means also that I’ve put up a pre-order at Amazon. Under the Mistletoe is almost done, too, and now that I know how it intersects with Theo’s story, I’ll be finishing it up this month, too. After it goes to my editor and I confirm her schedule, I’ll put up the pre-orders for it.

So, here are the pre-order links for Theo and Lyssa – as usual, it’ll be available at GooglePlay on the on sale date:

Bad Case of Loving You, book #5 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Theo knows what’s possible…
Because he’s learned the hard way what’s not. The internationally successful supermodel known as Angel stole his heart forever when she was shy Lyssa Monroe. There’s never been another woman who could compete—he even loved Lyssa enough to walk away when she told him they had to part. When he sees her at F5, he’s resolved to make one glimpse of her sustain him for another ten years. When she offers him one night together, Theo can’t say no—even though he knows a taste will only tempt him to hope for more all over again.

Lyssa has tasted forbidden fruit…
And she can’t forget it, no matter how hard she tries. Theo’s love is a touchstone for all that is pure and good in the chaos her life has become. When their gazes meet across the dance floor at F5, everything is simple for once and only one choice is possible. The secrets she keeps from him could destroy everything, but surely she can keep them hidden for just one night. How much will she sacrifice to defend the past—and how far will Theo go to discover the truth?

In Flashfire, Lorenzo has no interest in joining his fellow dragon shifters until his destined mate, Cassie, tracks him down in the hope of photographing one of the Pyr. Lorenzo makes a deal with her, never guessing that the defense of his mate will persuade him to embrace the powers he’s denied for centuries.

In Ember’s Kiss, Brandon distrusts his shifting abilities, but one look at Liz sets his dragon on fire. Liz understands the burden of a powerful legacy all too well, since she’s on the run from her own—can Liz and Brandon work together to defeat the evil Slayer who has cursed Brandon, and claim the promise of the firestorm?

In Kiss of Darkness, Damien finds his mate pregnant and captive in the underworld, but Petra’s influence is just as powerful as ever. Will the heartbreaker of the Pyr risk even his own heart to save his mate and their son?

In Kiss of Destiny, Thad follows the spark of the firestorm to his mate, a nymph named Aura.

More Flatiron Five On the Way

Some Like It Hot, book #7 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Aidan Connaught has a dream…
He’s spent his whole life working for his big acting break but time is running out. His plan is to win the contest at Flatiron Five to be their next billboard model for visibility, then to ace the lead role in an amateur production of Romeo and Juliet. He hopes the combination will catapult him to success. But when he discovers that his director doesn’t even believe in love, Aidan knows he has to change McKenna’s mind, no matter what it takes…

McKenna Singer no longer believes in dreams…
Being abandoned at the altar once is enough to teach anyone that love and romance is for other people. McKenna’s all about making a difference, so she’s seizing the chance to turn Romeo and Juliet upside down and inside out—until Aidan Connaught’s audition casts a spell over the entire cast. If he thinks seducing the director will encourage McKenna to compromise, she’s is more than ready to surrender. It’s just a fling and a play—at least until McKenna has to step into the role of Juliet, and realizes she wants so much more.

Coming July 31!

One Knight’s Return Pre-Order

The Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances continues with the tale of Quinn’s return home to Sayerne.

One Knight's Return, #2 of the Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixKnight and crusader Quinn de Sayerne vowed never to return home while his villainous father drew breath. Twenty years after his departure, he is notified of his father’s death and summoned by his liege lord to claim his family holding. But his overlord has a stipulation: Quinn must wed Melissande, the beauteous heiress of neighboring Annossy. Quinn hoped to make a match based on more than mutual animosity, but he is resolved to win the heart of his lady wife, at any cost.

Melissande cannot believe that her liege lord has not only compelled her to break an old betrothal but wed her to a ruffian—and granted the seal of Annossy to him, despite her expertise. It is the dream of Quinn’s father brought to fruition, for the holdings will be merged just as he long schemed. But her overlord cannot be defied and she finds herself the chattel of this rough knight, despite her every protest.

Can Quinn win his lady’s reluctant heart? Or is he doomed to lose Melissande forever when her betrothed returns?

An earlier version of this story was published as My Lady’s Champion. What’s different? Ha. Pretty much everything – except Quinn, who I still adore. 🙂 The book has been completely revised, and there are new scenes linking the company of Rogues & Angels to the story. Tulley has a niece now, too.

Coming April 23, 2019.

Christmas with the Coxwells

Here’s a fun addition to my list, thanks to a suggestion from a reader here on the blog. I’ve written a Christmas story featuring the Coxwells, which brings us up to date on all their doings and sets the stage for the books featuring the younger generation. Jimmy (who now calls himself JD), Johnny (who goes by Jonathan) and Annette will be the first to have their stories told. You’ll find a bit of foreshadowing about their stories in this Christmas short story, too.

Christmas with the Coxwells will be available Wednesday December 12. There’s no pre-order at Amazon, but it will probably be available there on Tuesday.

Christmas with the Coxwells, a short story featuring the characters in The Coxwell Series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeTwelve years have passed since events in All or Nothing and it’s time to check in with my favorite family again. When last we heard, Jen had opened a yarn shop, Zach had his first photography show, Matt had finished his first book, Leslie had left the college to teach at a new and smaller school and Annette was going to learn to drive the Jag. James had moved over to the D.A.’s office, Maralys had become a soccer mom and was pregnant, Nick was growing heritage seeds, and Phil was running her garden design business even as she expected her first child. Beverly had adopted a pair of standard poodles and was dating Ross, the veterinarian, and Matt was buying out his siblings’ shares of the family house, Grey Gables, in Rosemount. There have been babies and changes galore, so come and catch up with the Coxwells in this holiday short story.

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.
