Delay of Game - Out Now! Plus More Pre-Order Links

That's right! DELAY OF GAME is available now!

With her father’s health in question, Sara Thomas is focused on reducing his anxiety. That’s no small feat considering his high-stress job, not to mention her own distractions. Everyone knows Sara’s single; no one knows she’s pregnant. There’s never a good time to unexpectedly get knocked up, but now is definitely not it. Regardless, she doesn’t want anyone to know—especially not her father—until she has a game plan in place. But when Jonny, one of her father’s players, seeks vigilante justice on the ice, everything gets tossed out the window.

Cam Johnson’s role as a fourth-line winger with the NHL’s Portland Storm entails more than scoring goals. He has to ensure other teams don’t take liberties with the Storm’s star players. The way Cam sees it, that’s the most important aspect of his job. His teammates call him Jonny; opposing fans call him a goon; the media calls him an enforcer. The title’s unimportant. Cam will always fight for his team—even if he has to break the rules. He’s used to taking penalties, but he never meant for anyone else to suffer from his choices.

When Cam’s actions cause Sara’s worst fears to be realized, he blames himself. He’s screwed everything up; now he has to set things right. Mutual attraction leads to lust, and suddenly Cam is taking penalties at every turn…at least where Sara is concerned. He’s got to think on his feet or he’ll end up with a Delay of Game.

You can buy DELAY OF GAME now at Amazon, iBooks, Kobo, All Romance eBooks, and Smashwords.
At Amazon only, and through tomorrow only, you can purchase it for $0.99 since it was not available as a $0.99 pre-order there.

You might have noticed that Barnes and Noble is missing from this list. And you might have placed a pre-order for DELAY OF GAME through Barnes and Noble, and be wondering where it is. Well, pre-orders at Barnes and Noble have to go through Smashwords, and there was a hang-up between when Smashwords processed the complete file, and when they sent it to Barnes and Noble for processing. That hang-up has caused it to be delayed. I am SO SORRY for this. It's a situation that is out of my hands, but that doesn't make it stink any less for any of you who are affected.

If you placed a pre-order through Barnes and Noble and don't want to wait for them to finish processing it (I can't guess how long it will be!), please forward your email confirmation of the pre-order to me at, and I will send you the ebook.

TAKING A SHOT, the novella initially included in the SEDUCED BY THE GAME anthology, is releasing separately on September 4, 2014.

You can pre-order it at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBooks, and Kobo. (There shouldn't be any problems with any of these pre-orders, as this title is complete and fully edited, so there will not be any late changes.)

Katie Weber has lost her health due to leukemia, and now her chemotherapy treatments have taken her hair. She’s not about to show up to her senior prom bald and let her classmates steal her dignity, too. Prom is no place for a girl who looks more like an alien than a high school student, especially when her so-called friends all dropped her like she had the plague at the first mention of the word cancer. Katie could never get up the courage to ask Jamie—her crush for almost two years, ever since he joined her dad’s pro hockey team—to take her. Not with the way she looks now. Besides, her dad would absolutely murder him.

Jamie Babcock knows its bad news to fall for his Portland Storm teammate’s daughter, but he’s had a thing for Katie since the first time he met her when he was just a wide-eyed, eighteen-year-old rookie. Now cancer might take her away before he ever grows the balls to do anything about it, though. Her father won’t be happy about it, but Jamie has to take a shot and ask to take her to her prom. It seems like Katie has just about given up, and he can’t let her go without giving her some good memories…something to hold on to. She’s still got her whole life ahead of her—she just has to keep living it. If he can convince her of that, nothing her father might do to him will matter.

DOUBLE MAJOR will release on September 18, 2014.

You can pre-order it at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBooks, and Kobo.
This is a novella of second epilogues to books 1-4 in the Portland Storm series. It is approximately 35,000 words long.

It’s the NHL’s draft day, but the whole Portland Storm team is back together for an entirely different event. Complete with a double wedding, an unanticipated guest, overdue apologies, unexpected goodbyes, and fresh starts, this big day has the potential to get them all called for a Double Major.

You can pre-order it at iBooks and Barnes and Noble. Pre-orders for Kobo and Amazon will be available sometime in September or October.

IN THE ZONE, the fifth full novel in the Portland Storm series, will release on November 20, 2014

**Please note, this is not the final blurb. Just something meant to give you a taste of what the book will involve.

It was supposed to be one night of fake names, half-truths, and anonymous sex. Neither of them was prepared for it to turn into so much more. Keith Burns, star defenseman for the NHL’s Portland Storm, was just looking for a way to pass the time and ease the loneliness of his lavish lifestyle. Brianna Hayden wanted to find herself again after health issues changed everything. That one night turns out to be so much more than either Keith or Brie expects, but anonymity is the name of their game, and the rules were laid down at the outset. Pushing for the truth might land Keith a permanent spot in Brie’s penalty box, but it’s a chance he’s willing to take. Once he gets In the Zone, he’ll be on the forecheck—but Brie’s heart is the goal he’s seeking.


  1. Eep! Unexpected goodbyes? Nooooooo! And what about Nickey? We need his story. I'm a sucker for a fixer upper man! And I think I know who the unexpected guest is... ooooo boy!

    1. There's more about Nicky in Double Major...and his book should be the next one after In the Zone. :)
