New Oakland Hills Short Story — Now Available!


Now available! Can’t Stop Wanting You, a short story in the Oakland Hills world, has just been published as part of an ebook anthology called LOL Volume #1. This bargain of funny, sexy stories is going to be a huge hit — there are numerous NYT and USA Today Best-sellers contributing stories (a lucky 13 in total) — and it will be offered initially for only 99c!

The story (about 27 print pages) takes place next door to Trixie Johnson’s house during the wedding of Liam and Bev. On the Oakland Hills timeline, it takes place after This Time Next Door (Book 2) and my new book, Not Quite Perfect (Book 3, coming out next week.)

Can’t Stop Wanting You can be read as a stand-alone short-story that introduces new characters as well as revisiting some old favorites, such as Trixie Johnson, Liam, and Bev. You don’t have to read any of my other books to enjoy this one — I hope to use it to launch a spin-off of related short stories, and this will be the first in the new series.

Coming August 18! LOL Anthology


A group of authors who write sexy romantic comedy (some of whom are NYT best-sellers!) have gotten together to make an anthology of never-before-published short stories.

I’ve been lucky enough to be able to include a short story featuring Liam and Bev’s wedding in the backyard of the Johnson family home in Oakland. Titled Can’t Stop Wanting You, the story its #2.5 in the Oakland Hills series, taking place right after This Time Next Door (#2) and before my newest title, coming later this month, Not Quite Perfect. (#3)

Although I call the “Oakland Hills” books  a series, and number the books on the timeline, all of my work can be read on its own. The romances all begin and end (happily) within the pages of the individual novel or story.

Can’t Stop Wanting You is a short story about two people who get a second chance to stop hating each other. Their discovery is set during the wedding of their neighbors next door, Liam and Bev (from Love Handles, Oakland Hills #1).

It sounds confusing but makes perfect sense when you start reading. You’ll also discover a dozen other new writers for a very good price. All in ebook, all formats, all retailers.

August 18th!
