While the WiP Shelf is the messy, creative part of my office, the Coming Soon shelf is the orderly side. Books listed here are either contracted or in production and only need polishing and buffing before they’re ready. Now that I’m getting the hang of this book-writing malarkey, I’m hoping to always have something on this page for you to look forward to…
Due out on November 22nd!
On pre-order from November 8th!
It sounds like the stupidest idea in the history of stupid ideas. Detective Inspector Josh Ingram wants to find a deadly medieval locket and through it, a murderer. So why does his boss decide to team him up with Matisse Vervein, a pop idol many consider just a pretty face… and expect the two of them to hunt down an art thief?
Marissa Godwin, Matisse’s no-nonsense manager, isn’t stupid. Neither is her brother-in-law, Detective Superintendent Tim Montgomery. Each is looking out for a lonely man on the verge of quitting what he does best, and both believe that their charges would make a great team.
The attraction sizzling between Josh and Matisse is hard to miss, but there’s plenty of resentment, too. Focussed on pushing Josh and Matisse towards each other, Marissa and Tim haven’t imagined the kind of trouble a music star and a detective can find when they ditch their prejudices and accept that the attraction between them is mutual. Or how far each is prepared to go to prove it to the other.
A standalone, feel-good romance set in England and Scotland, featuring a reluctant pop star who’s not out, a detective trying his hand at being a bodyguard, plenty of adventure, and a happy ending.
A Rathbone & McGowan Story
Me and Mrs Jones. Ian Rathbone hates the song with everything he has. When he risks his life to shut down illegal weapons labs in a country still recovering from a military coup and six years of anarchy he doesn’t want to come home to hear it blare through his apartment, a wordless confession that his partner Tom has strayed once more.
After eighteen months and too many infidelities to count, Ian can’t help but wonder why he stays with Tom. Especially when his new work partner is loyal, genuine, and genuinely tempting Patrick McGowan.
Ian’s had his eye on Patrick for months. The chemistry between them is undeniable, but Ian doesn’t cheat.
Before he acts on his growing attachment, he needs time to sort out his relationship with Tom. Patrick is willing to give him that time, but in a danger-filled job like theirs, with a boss who disapproves of any kind of relationship between them, and with an unseen enemy who works to take down the Sweepers before they can get to him, will they even stand a chance?
Swings & Roundabouts | The Power of Zero #4
Jack Horwood doesn’t do things by halves. Once he’s decided to build a home and family with Gareth, Nico, and Daniel he’s all in, whether that means helping with homework, arguing with banks and builders or taking care of Gareth, who is snowed under with work and his freelance job for Aidan.
Stressed, tired and barely home, Gareth doesn’t believe that Jack finds looking after his home-made family as enjoyable as he claims. Doubts creep in and arguments soon follow until Jack organises a weekend break in Northern Sweden just for the two of them to sort out their issues.
What starts as a good idea turns into a murder hunt when they discover a dead body, frozen into the “furniture” of the famous Ice Hotel, and both Jack and his friend Oskar are implicated in the dead woman’s disappearance. Jack can only watch from the sidelines as Gareth steps up to help solve the murder, sure that it will bring all Gareth’s doubts back full force and put him once more on a collision course with Jack and their feelings for each other.
