HOLIDAY CRUSH Cover/Blurb Reveal and More!

Tis the season! HOLIDAY CRUSH is coming soon and I’m so thrilled to share the new cover by Sleepy Fox Studio!

Mark your calendars for December 10 for Book 3 in my Small Town/Hockey series, Elmwood Stories and a little holiday magic. This one belongs to Elmwood natives, Ivan and Court, coffee shop owner extraordinaire and his grade school crush, a down-on-his-luck hockey player who just happens to be home for the holidays. This book can be enjoyed as a standalone. Preorder for Holiday Crush available now!

Check out the blurb for Holiday Crush:

The hockey has-been, the barista, and some holiday magic…


Cut from the team, fired my agent…now what? 

This can’t be it for me. Unfortunately, the phone isn’t ringing. My best bet is to head home for the holidays and regroup. 

I can help out at the rink and visit the guy who owns the coffee shop next to my family’s bakery. No, no, it’s not what you think. Ivan and I went to school together. We’re acquaintance-friends…nothing more.

But you know, I like him. A lot. He’s funny and relentlessly upbeat. I’m a better person when I’m with him—the kind who volunteers to deck the halls and wrap garland on lampposts and—

Whoa. What is happening here?


I spent my formative years mooning over Court Henderson, our high school’s hockey phenom even though he was out of my league. Thankfully, I grew up and left silly remnants of my youth behind. Good thing ’cause he’s grumpier than I remembered.

He’s also going through a tough time and if I can be a friend to him, I will ’cause under his gruff yet extremely fine exterior, he’s a good soul with a huge heart. He’s charming, sweet, handsome, and—uh oh. 

My crush is back. Just in time for the holidays…

Holiday Crush is an MM bisexual, small town romance featuring a renewed ancient crush, some mistletoe latte art, and a little seasonal magic.


Wait, there’s more news! NEXT SEASON, Book 2 in Elmwood Stories will be available on audiobook any second now. Yes!! JC on audio! Can you even??? It’s in Audible’s hands so I’m hoping for a speedy release. I’ll let you know when it’s live. In the meantime, audiobook lovers, be sure to get your copy of YOU, AGAIN, narrated by the oh, so talented Nick J. Russo.


Last but not least, I’m thrilled to announce that The Humbug Holiday, my holiday standalone story from last year, has just been released in German translation! German readers, be sure to get your copy of Weihnachten- Bah, Humbug! …just in time for the holidays! Grumpy meets grumpy and somehow, the holidays are more magic than ever! Hope you enjoy!

I think it’s officially holiday season, so Happy Holidays and Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating next week. This will be George’s second Thanksgiving, but he was so tiny last year. What a difference a year makes!

Lane and…George ❤ 🐾
