Newest Oakland Hills Short Story: Now in Kindle Store (Free in Kindle Unlimited)


As of today, you can get the third Oakland Hills short story Can You Love Me Now? * as a standalone ebook on Amazon for 99¢. It’s also part of Kindle Unlimited, the Amazon ebook and audiobook subscription service, which means free reading if you’re a subscriber. (You can sign up for a free 30-day trial here.)

It’s a friends-to-lovers, snowed-in-a-cabin, in-love-with-her-best-friend’s-brother, second-chance love story of about 45 pages. It also has some of the characters from the first two Oakland Hills short stories. And Trixie playing matchmaker again. You can read it as a standalone romance, but it’s better if you read the first two before this one:

Can’t Stop Wanting You (Oakland Hills Short Story 1)

Just Can’t Forget You (Oakland Hills Short Story 2)


Happy reading!


*Note: Can You Love Me Now? is the same story that was part of the USA Today Best-seller  LOL Volume #3 Romantic Comedy Stories anthology.

“Can’t Stop Wanting You” Now in Kindle Unlimited


Now available as its own Kindle ebook: my Oakland Hills short story “Can’t Stop Wanting You.” This 35-page story is standalone read with new characters set against the backdrop of the wedding of Liam and Bev from Love Handles!

Note: this is the same story that was in last month’s USA Today bestseller, LOL Romantic Comedy Anthology Volume 1. Both are $0.99 — or FREE to members of Kindle Unlimited.

What is Kindle Unlimited? Amazon unveiled a new subscription service in July for (U.S.-based) readers. For $9.99 per month you can read an unlimited number of books enrolled in the program. It’s kind of like Netflix for books, and Amazon has more than 600,000 books in the program.

RIGHT NOW Amazon’s offering a completely free 30-day trial for Kindle Unlimited. You don’t even pay the $9.99 monthly fee for the first month, and you can read all the books you want for $0. And in case your generous heart is concerned about authors making a  living — we get paid for each borrow that is read past the 10% mark. So borrow away!

If you don’t want to sign up for the service, no problem — you can get just the Kindle ebook of “Can’t Stop Wanting You” for only 99c.

My next new release is coming out in November as part of LOL Romantic Comedy Volume 2. That anthology will be distributed on all platforms — Kindle, Nook, iBooks, and Kobo, before also joining Kindle Unlimited as a standalone ebook.

As always, thanks so much for reading.

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.
