Home for the Holidays, a Christmas romance and number seven in the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Last month, I created a free online puzzle of the meme for Just Home for the Holidays. Those who sent me their time for completing the puzzle were entered in a draw for a free signed copy of the book. The books have (finally) arrived – shipping has been really slow! – and we have a winner.

Congratulations to Christine, who was the first to finish the puzzle and report her time. It was a tough one – most people took over an hour to complete it. 🙂

The puzzle is still available. You can find it right here.

New Reviews for Just Home for the Holidays!

There are some wonderful five-star reviews appearing for Hunter and Chloe’s book – of course, I want to share them with you!

Five star review for Just Home for the Holidays, a Christmas romance and number seven in the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

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?

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.

Hunter and Chloe’s story will be published tomorrow! This is a holiday romance, one that I wasn’t expecting to write this year. It’s long for a novella but shorter than a book.

Monthly Feature – Holiday Romance

This month, my feature is on holiday romances. I have a few to share with you.

A Berry Merry Christmas, a holiday romance novella by Deborah Cooke

A Berry Merry Christmas is a standalone contemporary romance and a novella, with a touch of magic. Natalie has been orphaned and lives with her Uncle Drew, who works too much to have time for romance. She writes to Santa, asking for a new mommy, and an elf who needs to find her niche is assigned to the job. Holly thinks she’ll be matchmaking in the mortal realm, but finds herself falling in love instead. This is a sweet fun romance that one of my readers said would make a great Hallmark movie.

Just One Second Chance, book six of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Just One Second Chance is a contemporary romance and part of my Flatiron Five Fitness series. Theo fell hard for Lyssa years ago, but she broke up with him. He thought it was to pursue her ambition of becoming a super-model. He’s in the middle of a holiday promotion for F5F when Lyssa turns up again, wanting to talk. There’s something she didn’t tell him—he should be furious with her, but the magic is still there. Can they trust each other enough to build a new future together?

Just One Christmas Night, book four of the Flatiron Five Tattoo series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Just One Christmas Night is the fourth and final book in my Flatiron Five Tattoo series. (It happens at the same time as Theo’s book, Just One Second Chance.) Chynna’s tattoo played a role in Lexi and Gabe finding their HEA in Just One Unforgettable Night—now they’re having a Christmas wedding in Honey Hill and Chynna is invited. She’s reluctant to attend, since Christmas is a hard time of year for her, but finds unexpected romance and love. This is a story of healing and new beginnings that’s a perfect holiday read.

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

Just Home for the Holidays is a Christmas romance and #7 in the Flatiron Five Fitness series. Chloe hates surprises and plans every detail in her life, so she needs a plus-one for her mom’s annual party—when Hunter volunteers, she knows there’s no chance of her falling for a bad boy like Hunter who lives in the moment. But when Chloe learns that Hunter hates Christmas, she wants to know why—and learning Hunter’s secrets puts her heart in danger after all. Can she convince Hunter to take a chance on the future together?

Pre-order available at some portals.

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

Chloe Richardson is on track…
Running the finances at Flatiron Five Fitness West is a dream job and it’s steadily making her goal of financial independence come true. She lives to work, and likes her schedules just fine. 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 refuses to make plans and she knows Hunter is all about variety. 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 knows she has to fix that. When she realizes that she’s falling fast for the Hunter no one else sees, can she convince him to give them a chance?

Hunter Tate 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 hot 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—she gets to him and demands more, but can Chloe’s love convince Hunter to commit to the future?

A Surprise Holiday Romance

As I was working on Just One Silver Fox, I realized that there had been a lot of events at Flatiron Five Fitness since Theo and Lyssa’s story, Just One Second Chance. That book ends in March 2019 while Jax and Pierce’s book begins in January 2020. There are babies – and we know that someone has to have fallen in love. I could have packed them all into Just One Silver Fox as backstory, but thought it would be a lot more interesting to write one of those romances.

What better than a Christmas romance – except one with love unexpected. And here it comes – Just Home for the Holidays is Hunter and Chloe’s story and it takes place in Manhattan at Christmas.

I’ll publish this book as soon as it’s ready to go. There won’t be a pre-order so keep your eyes open.

Read Under the Mistletoe Today!

Under the Mistletoe, a contemporary Christmas romance and #4 in the Secret Heart Ink series by Deborah CookeHere comes Chynna, better late than never!

Chynna has loved and lost…
Even though it’s been years, Christmas reminds Chynna of her husband’s death and makes her miss him even more. Attending Lexi and Gabe’s Christmas wedding sounds like a reminder of everything she’s lost, until she’s persuaded to go and share their joy. Once there, a hook-up with Trevor, Gabe’s handsome partner, could be another way to move beyond her grief—and Trevor makes taking that risk more than worthwhile, re-awakening Chynna to sensation and passion.

Trevor has never had time for love…
He’s always been focussed on building success. But now that his financial ambitions are achieved, he’s realized that he has no one to enjoy the rewards with him. His friend Gabe’s wedding makes him aware that he doesn’t want to be alone anymore. Chynna is the most attractive woman he’s met in years and Trevor knows that it will take more one night together to satisfy him. Chynna is the woman he’s been waiting for—all he has to do is convince her to take a chance on love again, with him.
