LATEST CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE RELEASES
NIGHTS BEFORE: THE NOVEL
Following the popularity of Leigh Verrill-Rhys’s six-installment series, ‘Twas the Night Before, Eres Books has released all of the stories in one paperback volume, Nights Before: The Novel.
New Year’s Eve is a time for reflection and change. Jocelyn has more changes coming at her from all directions beginning on a Portland, Maine winter day than she’s faced since her mother’s death. None of it bodes well for the junior editor’s fledgling career when her fiancé abandons her. If not for three unwise princes, a Viking warrior and a sinkhole…
So starts the last day of an Old Year in Jocelyn Tavers’s life. Over the next 12 months, she faces her 26th birthday, falling on Mother’s Day, at the same time as she wonders what happened to a certain officious lawman and a certain deserter father remembers her birthday after only fifteen years of neglect.
An ex-boyfriend and the appearance of a complete stranger are not the only obstacles to disrupt her author’s book launch, especially when that stranger is her next editing assignment.
But that New Year wasn’t all downhill. Nights Before national holidays bring more than big sale weekends for Joey-Jo, including all she ever wanted for Christmas.
This Can’t Be Love
Set in Edinburgh during the Fringe Festival, This Can’t Be Love is the story of a grumpy construction site manager and the quirky actress who drags him out of his self-imposed solitude.
Mike Argent has been hiding out around the world, traveling wherever his job took him, as long as that is nowhere near his ex-wife.
Jakki Hunter has paid her way to perform in an experimental play at the Festival and ends up a casualty at Mike’s feet when a local lad decides he’s had enough of her craziness.
This Can’t Be Love is now available at Amazon, KoboBooks, Smashwords, and on the iBookstore. Now also in print.
Salsa Dancing with Pterodactyls
Public Relations Officer, Emily Burdis, wants to dance. She wants a family. She also wants the promotion she’s worked five years to achieve. Her department head has other plans for her. His protege is in trouble and Harry believes Emily can give David Gitano the help he needs to keep his job and his self-respect.
Corporate Lawyer, David Gitano has been in trouble with the CEO of Hollis-Beaulieu ever since he gained full custody of his son and his late wife’s parents refuse to accept the decision. Their relentless attempts to take the child away and their relationship with the CEO give them the power they need to force David to break his oath to uphold the law.
Salsa Dancing with Pterodactyls is available at Kobobooks, on the iBookstore, BarnesandNoble, Smashwords and Amazon. The paperback edition is also available at Createspace.
Nights Before #1: ‘Twas the Night Before New Year
New Year’s Eve is a time for reflection and change. Jocelyn has more changes coming at her from all directions on this Portland, Maine winter day than she’s faced since her mother’s death.
None of it bodes well for the junior editor’s fledgling career when her fiancé abandons her to spend this holiday alone. If not for three unwise princes, a Viking warrior and a sinkhole…a short story.
All installments of the Nights Before series are available as ebooks on Amazon, BarnesandNoble, KoboBooks, on the iBookstore and Smashwords.
Nights Before #2 ‘Twas the Night Before Valentine’s Day
Best Seller Award at AllRomanceEbooks: All may be well with Jocelyn at the end of the New Year’s Eve party, but three unwise princes may not bode well for Valentine’s Day: ‘Twas the Night Before Valentine’s Day (Nights Before #2). Released at the end of January 2013.
Junior editing is all work and no play with Gordon Fieldcott. Genius or not, idiosyncracy has some unpleasant side effects. The return of her beloved 4×4 has a curious added benefit but Jocelyn has little time to enjoy the effort Steel Rod has put into the vehicle, not if she’s going to be ready for her date with that sanctimonious officer of the law.
Bradford Foster has a few surprises to offer at the Portland Old Town wharf but nothing takes the wind out of a girl’s sailing into oblivion faster than an Ex.

Just when Jocelyn believes she has a grip on her job, the publisher throws a task in her path that proves to be wicked near impossible without the help of a friend, if she can find one.
Nights Before #5 ‘Twas the Night Before Veterans Day
Months of job-hunting land Jocelyn in the protective custody of a close friend and seeking the help of a French-speaking public servant whose absence has cracked her façade of laissez faire and nonchalance.
Who would have thought a tow truck driver would be her rock in a hard place?
Nights Before #6 ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas Eve
Christmas Past and Christmas Previous haven’t been all Jocelyn Tavers wished, but Christmas Present and Christmas Future are in capable hands – her own.
But even the best laid plans have a way of meeting disaster head-on.
