Flatiron Five Fitness Boxed Set 2, including books 4 to 6 of the contemporary romance 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 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!

Kiss of Fury in Audio

Kiss of Fire, book two of the Dragonfire Novels, is now available in an audio edition!

This is another auto-narrated audiobook. Mr. Math proof-listens to these to ensure that all the words are pronounced correctly, which is why we’re publishing one a month.

Kiss of Fury

One act of passion can save the world…

Scientist Alexandra Madison was on the verge of unveiling an invention that would change the world. Then her partner was murdered, their lab was burned, and their prototype was destroyed. While Alex is in the hospital recovering from burns suffered in the fire, recurring dragon-haunted nightmares threaten to land her in the psychiatric ward, but she knows she has to escape to her lab to rebuild the Green Machine.

Handsome, daring, and impulsive, Donovan Shea is more than willing to do his part in the Pyr/Slayer war. Assigned to protect Alex, Donovan is shocked when her presence ignites his firestorm. He has no desire for a destined mate, but Alex’s intelligence and determination inspire him to join the fight to save her invention. With the Slayers closing in, Donovan knows he would surrender his life for Alex…and lose his heart to possess her.

Kiss of Fire in Audio

The first Dragonfire audiobook is available! This is an auto-narration, which means it’s a reading, not a performance. I chose a British accent for this project, because the only reference in the text to accents is to Erik’s British accent – I thought it would be odd if it said “Erik commented, his British accent stronger because he was annoyed” and not have the dialogue be in a British accent. Also, personal preference – if someone is going to read to me, I’d prefer they did it with a British accent. 🙂

The audiobook of Kiss of Fire is available at GooglePlay and KOBO. The price is the same as for the regularly priced e-book. You can only listen to a sample at GooglePlay (insert long technical explanation here – or not. I just couldn’t make it work, and neither could the support peeps.) We’re planning to do one a month so Kiss of Fury will be next. You can keep track of the releases on the new Audio page for Dragonfire.

Kiss of Fire

One kiss can change the course of destiny…

When ace accountant Sara Keegan decides to settle down and run her quirky aunt’s New Age bookstore, she’s not looking for adventure. She doesn’t believe in fate or the magic of tarot cards, but when she’s saved from a vicious attack by a man who has the ability to turn into a fire-breathing dragon, she questions whether she’s losing her mind – or about to lose her heart.

Self-reliant loner Quinn Tyrrell has long been distrustful of his fellow Pyr. When he feels the firestorm that signals his destined mate, he’s determined to protect and possess Sara, regardless of the cost. Then Sara’s true destiny is revealed and Quinn realizes he must risk everything – even Sara’s love – to fulfill their entwined fates.
