New Oakland Hills story coming Monday: JUST CAN’T FORGET YOU

LOLVol2_2covers_ggalway_justcantforgetyou REVISED

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 the bestselling Oakland Hills series. It’s a stand-alone short contemporary romance of about 45 pages (11,400 words), but is best read after the other Oakland Hills short story, CAN’T STOP WANTING YOU.

It will be widely available on Nov. 17, 2014 as part of the LOL VOLUME 2 ROMANTIC COMEDY anthology, with nine other fun, sexy stories by bestselling authors.

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!
