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 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.

Cover Reveal for Bad Case of Loving You

And, here’s Theo’s cover!

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

New Covers for the Dragon Diaries

The Dragon Diaries is a paranormal YA trilogy which is a spin-off from Dragonfire. It tells the story of Zoë Sorensson’s coming of age as the next Wyvern of the Pyr. There will be new editions of all three books in September of this year – although the new editions of the first two books won’t be available in all territories.

Here are the new covers. Once again, I was able to license the original cover illustration from the artist.

Flying Blind, book #1 of the Dragon Diaries series of paranormal YA novels by Deborah Cooke Winging It, book #2 of the Dragon Diaries YA trilogy by Deborah Cooke Blazing the Trail, #3 of the Dragon Diaries YA trilogy by Deborah Cooke

The Allison & Busby Commonwealth English editions of the first two books remain available in both print and digital, exclusively in the exclusive territories and non-exclusively in the non-exclusive territories. (What does that mean? The UK is an exclusive territory, therefore only the A&B editions are available there. Canada is a non-exclusive territory, therefore both the A&B editions and my new editions are available there.) The A&B editions look like this:

Flying Blind, first of the paranormal young adult Dragon Diaries trilogy by Deborah Cooke, UK edition Winging It, second of the paranormal YA trilogy The Dragon Diaries by Deborah Cooke, UK edition

Since A&B didn’t acquire the rights to Flying Blind, the new edition of that book will be available everywhere.

Click through on the covers to my Dragonfire website, where the detail about these books resides, to find more information about each book and pre-order links (more will be added as they become available).

Spring Fever

Spring Fever, #2 of the Secret Heart Ink series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeThe second book in the Secret Heart Ink series is Spring Fever.

Reyna knows happily-ever-after isn’t in her future…
But after three years of solitude, Reyna is ready for a fling. She’s learned her lesson with bad boys and long-term expectations, so her neighbor’s visiting nephew is the perfect man to lead into temptation. But Kade has a gift for breaking her rules and ensuring Reyna doesn’t regret it, which means one night becomes two…

Kade believes in putting the past where it belongs…
Kade was always waiting for the right woman, and one night with Reyna convinces him that he’s found her. It’s more than great sex and good conversation: Reyna’s determination to shape her life inspires him to rebuild his own, and he knows they’ll be a great team. All he has to do is convince her to take a chance on him and forever. When Reyna’s past catches up to them both, will it destroy their new partnership before the future begins?

Some Guys and One Hot Summer Night

Some Guys Have All the Luck, #4 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeI’ve made a little change to the publication schedule: Some Guys Have All the Luck will be published in July instead of in June.

In hindsight, I’m not sure how I thought I could manage having four books published on the same day, even if three of them were new editions of older books. In reality, these new Dragonfire editions are taking much much MUCH more time to prepare than I had expected and I’m running behind.

I want to be sure to give Cassie and Reid the attention they deserve, so I’ve moved their publication date to July 31. If you’ve pre-ordered the book at iBooks or KOBO, they may send you an update telling you of the change.

One Hot Summer Night, #3 of the Secret Heart Ink series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeI also added One Hot Summer Night to the New & Next page, tentatively scheduling it for August publication. This is Lexi and Gabriel’s second-chance romance and I’m really looking forward to digging in. There won’t be any pre-orders for this one until it’s ready to go, but now you know my plan. 🙂

There’s a post scheduled for tomorrow with links for Spring Fever, coming May 22!
