Out today!

The first part of my new dating app series - Shiftr: Swipe Left for Love is out today!!

If my cover reveal didn't whet your appetites enough, here's the book description:

"What if your fated mate was just an app swipe away? 

Curvy Dina Taylor hates the idea of online dating. It’s something kids do, not 36-year old women, whose boyfriends have left them for the office intern. But her best friend Lauren has a secret she’s bursting to share: there are men out there who absolutely love voluptuous girls like her. All Dina has to do is tap Shiftr, the cute little paw-print app that Lauren has just installed on her phone. 

In the time it takes Dina to get over her shock that there are guys who can shift into animals, she’s hit up by Logan – a dark-eyed bear-guy with a torso like sculpted marble and eyes like pools of lust. He tells her that he feels a magnetic connection to her, but before she can tell him that the feeling’s mutual, her clumsy thumb swipes the wrong way, and he’s gone. 

Dina is distraught, but Tamika, the creator of Shiftr has a cunning plan that may just bring them together again. Will Dina find the sexy Logan in the midst of the eccentric matchmaker’s beautiful, opulent summer garden party? And will they discover that they’re fated to be together? 

This is a short, sweet, steamy read, perfect for a lunch break, bath time, or a little dose of me-time, wherever you are. HEA and no cliffhanger!"

Excerpt from my upcoming release

“Ladies! Where did this lack-of-self-esteem avalanche come from?” Lauren said, looking appalled. “I thought me finding Connor would give you all hope that there are great guys out there. Now, no-one is going to settle or be an eternal spinster. We’re going to go to the ball, all looking amazing, and we’re going to have fun, and chat to lots of men. And I’m certain that, within six months, you’re all going to be with someone incredible. And I don’t want to hear any more negativity from any of you!”  With that, she stalked over to the bar to get another drink.

Latest book!

I've been a little quiet lately. That's because I've been hard at work at my new series. It's a series of standalone, 100 page romances, each featuring a different woman who meets the shifter of her dreams. All the characters are friends, and they live in the same small-town community, but each story is separate and complete, so they can be read in any order. 

The unifying concept of the stories is that they're based on a dating app called Shiftr. As you might have guessed, it features guys who shift into different animals. How much do you wish there was one of those in real life??? The women who use the app are all sexy, curvy, real girls, who are looking to find their lifelong mate. 

There will be lots of romance, including marriage and pregnancy, and, of course, lots of scorching-hot sex!

I'm really excited for this series, as it' a slightly new direction for me, and I can't wait to publish the first book on June 9th. 

So please put that date in your diaries!

Hot New Release: The Alpha's Justice (Huntsville Pack Book 2)

I'm a big fan of Michelle Fox and her off-beat take on shifter romance, and this new offering is her best yet, in my opinion.

I read it in a single sitting, and couldn't put it down until I'd finished. Gretchen is a unique character -  so stubborn and self sufficient, while I loved the way that Talon hung on, desperate to get her to admit they belong together. 

The book was action-packed - which is my kind of story! and with enough steamy scenes to send me for a cold shower afterwards. Great job, Michelle!


What’s an alpha to do when he’s found his fated mate, but she reacts to the news by kicking him in the balls? 

Gretchen Halbmond became a diehard Daddy’s girl the day her mother ran out on them both. She doesn’t believe in love and isn’t looking for it, but when her ailing father is attacked and left bloody by wolves on the wrong side of the law, she goes out in search of what she does believe in: Justice. 

Sheriff Talon Garde has way too much on his plate. Humans have breached shifters' carefully guarded privacy and are about to go public. If he can’t stop them, what happened to Gretchen’s father is going to be the least of everyone’s worries. 

More importantly, despite Talon’s rep as a badass alpha whose growl strikes fear in the hearts of criminals, Gretchen’s scent makes him go all squishy inside. She’s THE ONE, he’s sure of it. There’s just the small matter of convincing Gretchen it’s pointless to fight fate…and surviving the way she fights it. 

Standalone novel with NO cliffhanger. 

NOTE: While this is book 2 of the Huntsville Pack series, all the books are completely standalone. The series does revisit favorite characters, but the plots don’t carry over from book to book, they are resolved at the end of each story.
