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.

Now in the Kindle Store: Just Can’t Forget You (Oakland Hills Short Story #2)


Now available for your Kindle as a separate ebook!

The second Oakland Hills short story, Just Can’t Forget You, was originally published in November 2014 inside the anthology LOL Volume #2 Romantic Comedy Stories.

They first met as troubled teens, then were driven apart. Now their paths have crossed again, for a second chance at love.

Melissa has shrugged off her past to begin a fulfilling career in horticulture—and isn’t looking for anything that remotely resembles trouble.

But Eduardo is definitely trouble. All grown up, he’s more dangerous than ever, with dark eyes that lead her into temptation… and a sensitive heart that knows her deepest secrets.

Can the seeds of the past grow into a future that blooms?

Just Can’t Forget You is set in the world of my bestselling Oakland Hills series. It’s a stand-alone short contemporary romance of about 45 pages (11,400 words), but is best if read after the other Oakland Hills short story, Can’t Stop Wanting You.

Apologetic note: because this story is part of Kindle Unlimited (Amazon’s subscription program), you can only get the story at Amazon at this time.

But if you are part of Kindle Unlimited (and you can sign up for a free 30-day trial here), the story is free!

Thanks as always for reading.

“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.
