Just Home for the Holidays, a Christmas romance novella and #7 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Chloe has plans…

Running the finances at Flatiron Five Fitness West is steadily making her goal of financial independence come true. Returning to New York for Christmas should be routine, but her mom starts matchmaking—and Chloe needs a plus-one fast. When Hunter volunteers, Chloe decides he’s the perfect choice—she’ll never get emotionally involved with a guy who doesn’t worry about tomorrow. It doesn’t hurt that he’s hot, or that he kisses like he invented it—but when Chloe discovers that Hunter hates Christmas, she needs to know why. How much will she surrender to unlock his secrets? And how will she keep herself from falling in love once she does?



Hunter lives in the moment…

He’s learned the hard way that tomorrow might never come and is determined to make every day count. The problem is Christmas—he needs a major distraction to keep his memories at bay. A fake date to a fancy charity event with his gorgeous co-worker, Chloe, is definitely out of the ordinary for him, but Hunter loves a challenge. What could be a better one than breaking every one of Chloe’s rules? It’s all fun until Chloe decides to help Hunter put the past behind him—when she demands more than a fling, can Hunter learn to believe in the future again?


Five stars!
This is the most absolutely perfect story. I loved everything about this story, I couldn’t put it down. It was like a movie was playing in my head. It wasn’t rushed, it wasn’t too Hallmark-y, it was just…..perfect.

Five Stars!
Flatiron Fitness is always fun to return to and this time around we have a guy who lives in the moment, has deep scars, and doesn’t want any sort of commitment, oh, and hates Christmas. We also have Chloe who likes and lives by her plans, doesn’t like surprises, and needs a fake date ASAP while in town for the Holidays so her mom doesn’t try to set her up with her ex. Enter Hunter who, until now, has never noticed her because she hid behind her conservative clothes and glasses, but she has gone through a change and he likes that change. I enjoyed their story and how he got more than he expected or wanted because Chloe decides that he is worth more than a one-night stand. I enjoyed how it evolved and the ending was sweet and romantic. Loved it.

Rendezvous with a Romance

Just Home for the Holidays is also available in mass market paperback.


Just One Fake Date on the Charts

On Saturday, the first BookBub Featured Deal for Just One Fake Date ran and the results were very satisfying. 🙂 This book hadn’t had a promotion before, and it is currently 99cents at all portals. It’s the new first book in the Flatiron Five Fitness series.

I wasn’t really on top of this on Sunday morning, but grabbed these screen shots later in the day. It’s entirely possible (and likely) that the rankings were higher earlier in the day.

By the time I looked at Amazon, Tyler and Shannyn’s book was at #129 overall in the store, #4 in sports romance and #15 in romantic comedy.

At Barnes & Noble, Just One Fake Date earned a bestseller ribbon (yay!).

It was also #8 overall in the store when I looked (although a reader said she’d seen it at #5 earlier in the day.)

At Apple, Tyler and Shannyn’s story was #14 overall in the store when I looked:

It was also included on a carousel for first-in-series bestsellers at Apple – notice that it’s the first one in the listings that’s a paid read, which is cool.

At KOBO, Just One Fake Date was #1 in sports romance, #4 in contemporary romance and #5 in contemporary women.

Just One Fake Date is still 99 cents at the major portals, so if you don’t have your copy yet, grab it today!

Flatiron Five: The First Collection on the Charts!

Flatiron Five: The First Collection, a digital bundle of the first three contemporary romances and romantic comedies in the Flatiron Five series by Deborah Cooke

Yesterday, I had a BookBub Featured Deal for Flatiron Five: The First Collection, a newly released bundle of three contemporary romances. It’s 99 cents now, but will ultimately be $9.99.

A boxed set including the series starter is a great introduction for new readers to a series. Promoting it at a special price (this one is 99 cents until Saturday) is an excellent way to find those new readers, in my experience. There are still three more books in the series available and the series is complete, two more reasons to create and advertise this bundle. And BookBub is the most effective way to promote a sale.

Let’s look at yesterday’s results.

At Amazon, the book rose to #79 paid in the Kindle store as of this morning (it was at #161 by noon yesterday) as well as ranking in the sports and military romance categories. Because this series isn’t in Kindle Unlimited, I didn’t have high hopes for the charts at Amazon. This is a very nice showing – and a lot of units sold at Amazon.

Flatiron Five, the First Collection, a digital bundle of three contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke at #79 overall paid in the Kindle store on January 23, 2020


At Kobo, the bundle was at #2 in Contemporary Romance last night, as well as #1 in Sports Romance.

At Nook, the bundle rose to #7 overall paid, and #2 in Romance, a lovely surprise.

Flatiron Five, the First Collection, a digital bundle of three contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke at #7 overall paid in the Nook store on January 22, 2020


I was most excited about the results at Apple. This series sells very well at Apple, so I was hoping to find more readers there. Last night, the F5 bundle was #3 overall in the Apple bookstore, which is fabulous.

This morning, it had dropped to #4 overall, but was #2 in the Romance category. (Now I’m wondering if it was #1 in Romance last night. I should have looked!)

I didn’t take a screen shot of it, but Going to the Chapel, the short story in the Flatiron Five series was sitting at #145 paid in the Apple store last night, proof that Apple readers are already continuing with the series.

BookBub Ad Results for Simply Irresistible

Simply Irresistible, a contemporary romance by Deborah Cooke and first in the Flatiron Five series.On Sunday, I had a BookBub Featured Deal for Simply Irresistible, which is book one of my Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances. This serie starter was featured as a free read.

Simply Irresistible has had BBFD’s before – dates – so it’s reasonable to expect diminished results each time.

This time, I discounted other books in the series in the hope of prolonging the halo. I did this with The Princess in June and the strategy worked well for historical romance – the halo for that series extended well into July at all portals. This was an opportunity to see how well it worked for my contemporary romances.

By 12:30 Eastern, Tyler and Amy’s book was on the move at Amazon.com. It had already reached #2 in Romantic Comedy and #5 in Contemporary Romance, as well as #22 overall free in the Kindle store. Simply Irresistible, book one of the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke, at #2 in Romantic Comedy, #5 in Contemporary Romance and #22 free overall at Amazon.com on August 12, 2019What a great start!
