I’m so excited to announce another release! You might call it a flash release because I’m taking you by surprise with it :). I wrote this little short story a while back and have been sitting on it, because I needed to get up to speed on the whole self publishing thing before I released it. Eventually I decided I just had to jump in and do it, so here I am, announcing my first ever solo self publishing venture! (can you hear my knees knocking from where you are?)

I always wanted to release this story on my own because I liked it so much the way it was–short, hot, kind of sweet and sad in parts, and overall uplifting. It’s a story about an estranged husband and wife who have one last shot at making their marriage work. In Romanceland, we so often focus on firsts–first meetings, first loves, first kisses and the first (insert your choice of verb here *wink*). That’s good stuff, fun stuff. But we rarely get to see what happens after the initial blush of love starts to wear off and a couple is left to deal with real life stuff. When my heroine Cassie and her husband Reed had to deal with their real life issues, they didn’t do it very well. In Rendezvous, we see them trying to rectify that… while sailing around the idyllic Whitsunday Islands of course. Because I’m the author and I could set the book anywhere I wanted :).

So are you ready for a book not about firsts this time, but about second chances?

Six days at sea with her ex… Conditions are about to get rough

Twelve months ago Cassie Dalton fled Sydney and her three year marriage to tough city cop, Reed. Now she’s living a new life chartering tourists around the pristine tropical waters of the Whitsunday Passage on her inherited yacht, The Rendezvous. Despite having unresolved feelings for her estranged husband, she sends divorce papers in her desperation to move on. To her surprise the move shakes Reed out of his emotional hibernation and brings him to north Queensland, determined to win her back. As they spend the next six days sailing and sharing secrets, Cassie begins to wonder why she ever thought living without the man she loves was a solid life plan.

But just as she thinks all their fences have mended, Reed breaks her heart all over again…

Release date 1 August 14, when it will be available everywhere including Amazon. Preorder at Smashwords or iBooks AU, with more preorder links to come. You can read an excerpt here.
