Kobo is running a Buy One Get One sale on boxed sets from Monday June 3 to Sunday June 30. This sale will also be supported at Walmart, on their website in the US, since Kobo provides digital content to Walmart. This sale is supported in five territories—US, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand—and there are separate landing pages for each territory.
You will find my bundles Dragonfire Quest, The Dragons of Incendium: The First Collection and The Prometheus Project on the PNR & SciFi carousel on the landing page. You’ll also find The Coxwells Boxed Set on the Chemistry & Comedy carousel. (The order of the books on each carousel will change throughout the month, so you might have to click View All to find the titles.)
The links on the titles above are Kobo links. Here are the Kobo landing pages by territory.

I’ve been moving my schedule around to accommodate the new publication date of Bad Case of Loving You. I also want to start some new projects.
One of the results of this reorganization is that Some Like It Hot has been moved to a February 2020 publication date. That will take my contemporary romance publication schedule back to two titles a year. (Theo and Lyssa messed me up, but in 2020 we’ll be on track again.)
The contemporary romance after that (summer 2020 pub date) will be a Coxwell book. I also want to set some romances at Flatiron Five West, and will be attending RWA National in San Francisco in July 2020 with the plan of doing some research there.
I’m planning to finish up Under the Mistletoe and publish it this fall, so it will be my 2019 holiday romance read. First, Theo and Lyssa, then Chynna.
As for Claire’s books, there will be One Knight’s Return this month, which has proven to be another one of those little republication projects that ended up taking a huge amount of time. (The second half of the book is all new and the first half has significant changes. It would have been faster to just write a new book!) Then there will be a republication of Unicorn Bride in August, which really will be a republication and very close to the original.
That’s where we stand!
Yesterday, I received copies of the Flatiron Five books in their new hard cover editions! They really look nice.
I just added these editions a few weeks ago, in the hope that they’ll make their way into some library collections. You can also buy them at your portal of choice.
I’ve added the links to the book pages, but here they are all in one place:
Buy Simply Irresistible in hardcover:
• Barnes & Noble
Buy Addicted to Love in hardcover:
• Barnes & Noble
Buy In the Midnight Hour in hardcover:
• Barnes & Noble
Buy Some Guys Have All the Luck in hardcover:
• Barnes & Noble
I spent some time this week organizing the Pinterest boards for Flatiron Five and adding some more images.
You can find them all right here.
This year, I’m determined to get ahead of my publication schedule, so that books are done and loaded well in advance of publication. This will make it easier for me to plan and also to promote those books. This means I need to delay publication on some things. In future, I won’t tell you what I’m working on until it’s loaded for pre-order (and done). So, we’re in a little transition phase.
First up, the publication date for Bad Case of Loving You moved to April 16.
Next, One Knight’s Return‘s publication date moved to May 21.
Third, Some Like It Hot moved the fall – it now has an October 29 publication date. At this point, I’m thinking it will be the last Flatiron Five book, but we’ll see.
What goes in the gaps?
Under the Mistletoe will be a September release. It makes more sense to publish a Christmas book in the fall than in the spring, after all. I’ll give you the links once it’s loaded at the portals. Chynna’s story will be the last Secret Heart Ink book
Here Be Dragons will be a July release, one way or the other. Again, I’ll give you the links once it’s loaded at the portals.
What comes after that? I’ll tell you once the links are live! I have so many covers that I’ve already commissioned, but might do something entirely new.

Kyle wants it all…
Kyle Stuyvesant doesn’t believe in love and romance. His parents taught him there’s no such thing as forever, and he took the lesson to heart. After all, there’s only one woman who ever tempted him to more than a single, hot night together. Fortunately for his convictions, she’s married to another guy. Problem solved—until Lauren’s husband cheats and Kyle isn’t just the bearer of bad news, but the man she turns to for comfort.
Lauren demands it all…
When Lauren’s marriage implodes, she wants to lose herself in pleasure and sensation. Who knows that territory better than Kyle who seduced her so deliciously years before? It was a night Lauren never forgot, and now that she wants to start again, Kyle is the only man she wants. Will she be able to accept his terms of no love or romance? When Lauren can’t get enough, will Kyle take a chance on wanting more?
“Loved every second of it. It has the kind of character development rarely seen in romance novels. Everything happens within a few days, maybe a week or two, but this one started twelve years ago when they first met, then flash-forward to present day and he is her brother’s best friend, their past is a secret, she is married and he is the bearer of bad news. From that moment on it is a slow burn and a strong build up to a great relationship. It spans months and Cooke does it seamlessly with no dull parts. It was great. I loved the slow build. I loved that Kyle had to work for it and that Lauren refused to settle. The progression of the book was great and the conflicts were strong. I loved how Lauren set her cheating ex-husband straight in front of a group of strangers, and I love how Kyle grew from a man who wanted nothing but one night stands, to one who wanted forever and how he grew as a character. There isn’t anything I didn’t like about this book.” —Rendezvous with a Romance

Theo 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:
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?

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!
