❅Oh the weather outside is frightful, But the fire is so delightful, And since we've no place to go, let's all curl up with a Christmas book!❅

The Christmas Throwaway

The Christmas Throwaway, was my first Christmas themed book. Written as a short story for someone who was poorly in J2 fan fiction, I extended it from two thousand short words to over forty and so Ben and Zach were created.
The book, a story of a young man thrown out of his house at Christmas for being gay, did really surprisingly well. It was All Romance's best selling book of 2010 and also spent a lot of time in the top 300 of all romance novels on Amazon. It's now available in Audio and has been translated into Spanish, Italian, French and now German. I love this little book that could so much.

New York Christmas

Awwww, my boys in New York. I loved writing this book.
It started life as a J2 fanfiction twelve days of Christmas type short story.
When I rewrote it I wanted to keep that idea of the days before Christmas, although of course the book starts just before Thanksgiving and ends in the New Year.
There is also a free short story following on, available at Amber Kell's blog here

Angel In A Bookshop

The story of an angel and a man set in a book shop. I mean, how could I not enjoy writing this, it had a bookshop, a man with wings, and an angsty sad hero. Win/Win.
It was based loosely on a short I wrote for Dreamspinner way back in 2010 (a bit, not much really, it was supposed to but it kind of grew like topsy and became something else).
The short story I had written was my first ever accepted work for publishing and it HAD to be extended and become something else.

Texas Winter (Texas #2)

The book that was never supposed to be written…  Did you know The Heart Of Texas was supposed to be a stand alone? ROFL… I couldn't leave it though and so Texas winter was born.
Snow doesn't fall a lot in Texas but this story centers around a freak one-day snowfall. Add in a daughter Riley didn't know he had and the Campbell-Hayes have their first real Christmas.

Christmas In The Sun

The Sapphire Cay series came to an end with book 6.
I loved writing this series with my very close friend Meredith Russell and we had to give the boys a Christmas book in 2013.
We bought back a wedding planner with OCD decorating tendencies and his sexy Marine, Lucas and Dylan and a stray dog, and gave all of our boys a Christmas Day they wouldn't forget.

Deefur and the Great Mistletoe Incident

A free short story Christmas gift
This was part of a huge Christmas Anthology that I pulled together in 2013 featuring some 25 new authors. It is the sequel to Deefur The Dog, featuring a Manny, a widower, a sweet child, and of course a Great Dane called Deefur.

Jesse's Christmas

This was my second Christmas themed book and spent some time with an old publisher before I was lucky enough to get it back. As soon as I got it back I doubled it in size!
The story of someone who doesn't really like Christmas landing in a town that won an award for best Christmas Town made me smile the entire time I was writing it.
I couldn't fail to love Gabriel who showed Jesse what Christmas could be about and how it is possible to love again.

The Journal of Sanctuary One

(Sanctuary book 6)
Jake and Sean, with their love/hate relationship stuck in a cabin in the middle of nowhere for Christmas. Of course the Bullen storyline features but mostly this is me ticking ALL of my Christmas boxes.
Two men, a cabin, stranded, anger, hate, love, sex and gratuitous use of a running machine. Sighs. I loved writing this book.

The Road To Frosty Hollow

I love the concept of a road trip, particularly when you fall in love on that journey. Add in two men who have known each other a very long time and this is a story written with Meredith Russell that ticks all the boxes for a Christmas Romance.

Snow & Secrets (Stanford Creek #3)

One of my favourite storylines in a romance book at Christmas is the idea of a snowy cabin, enforced isolation, and two men falling in love.
Snow, secrets, some danger, one hot tub, Christmas decorations, and family.

Texas Christmas (Texas #5)

Writing the Texas series was a labour of love, and I had to put in a Christmas story for Jack, Riley, and their extended family.
There is of course drama with the Campbell-Hayes, including a terrifying car trip home with the Christmas Tree. Add in the boy's new family and this ends up being a very interesting Christmas for them all.

The Case of the Sinful Santa

End Street Detective Agency Book 4, written with Amber Kell
How could we not explore the idea of a Klaus family in this series of books featuring vampires, demons, angels, dragons and one kind of human, along with a cast of many other paranormals?
In this book we explored what it must be like born into the Klaus family but not wanting to be a Santa… And and of course, we introduced our very own Angel just to shake things up.

Snow In Montana (Montana #4)

The fourth story in the Montana series is a look at Justin and Adam, alongside a whole new romance between a B list actor and a Sheriff.
I love Christmas movies, and this novel is set against the March backdrop for filming *Snow In Montana* starring The King Of Christmas (TM) Jordan Darby. Meeting Ryan Carter, the local sheriff, is way too tempting for Jordan. How long can he stay in the closet?

Love Happens Anyway 

This is what happens when…
a) Alex Jane asks authors to write a short story for an Advent Calendar and i have this idea about…. things…
b) Becky Condit on a discussion about what is awesome about MM, says she loves the phrase *Love Happens Anyway*
Well, you see, what happens is that A CHRISTMAS BOOK is born (because you know how much I like Christmas!
