I’ve been on vacation this week, and while I was gone, gorgeous covers for my next two releases – AFTERNOON DELIGHT (9/14) and THE LIST (3/15) showed up in my inbox! Both books are part of my new series with Berkley’s Heat and Intermix imprints, called the Irresistible series. I’m so excited about these books. They’re set in New York City, one of my favorite settings, and hearken back to previous works, including BREATH ON EMBERS (remember Tim, the FDNY EMS lieutenant? He’s getting his book!),  and the novellas in the Agony/Ecstasy anthology (THE LIST’s heroine is “Lady Matilda”, who is not a Lady, or a lady, but is a whole handful of trouble for FBI agent Daniel Logan). Here’s the cover and blurb for Afternoon Delight:

AfternoonDelight final


Sarah McCall, food truck co-owner and recentManhattan transplant, savors each moment of her new job—whether it’s refining the truck’s menu, learning the city, or spending afternoons in bed with the hot paramedic who’s fast becoming her favorite customer.

Tim Cannon spends his days sprinting from one emergency to the next. He eats like he works—at top speed—somewhere along the line he lost his ability to enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Hooking up with Sarah is just another way to cope with the stress of his job, until their afternoon trysts coax Tim into enjoying everything he’s avoided. Can Tim learn to balance his job saving lives with the everyday delights that make life worth living? If anyone can teach him, it’s Sarah…

And here’s the cover and blurb for THE LIST:

TheList final


Matchmaker and stationery shop owner Matilda Davies brings people together. For those on her list, Tilda will find the man or woman of their dreams—whether it’s for an hour or a lifetime. But due to a painful past, the British expat has never put her own name on the list. Instead, she limits herself to emotionless and commitment-free hookups. Then she meets Daniel, who wants not just her body, but also her heart…

Daniel Logan hides the soul of a poet under the suit and tie of an FBI agent. Specializing in financial crimes, he pieces together stories of greed and ensures justice is done. He plays by the rules—until he meets Tilda. He’s drawn in by her passion as well as her mysteriousness. Daniel knows that no matter her secrets, he’s the perfect match for Tilda. But even pleasure doesn’t come with a guarantee…

September isn’t very far away. 😉 Until then, happy reading!
