I’m leaving for a vacation at a hopefully sunny beach in about two weeks, so I’m pleased that I managed to finish revising my work in progress, Falling Hard. I just sent it off to my editor yesterday.
Here’s what it’s all about:
Dr. Jordan Williams devotes her life to two things: saving patients in the operating room and pleasuring her latest conquest in the bedroom. Her idea of commitment is spending a few hours together in bed.
Single mom Emma Larson is Jordan’s polar opposite. Family and fidelity mean everything to her. After an ugly divorce from her wife, a plastic surgeon, she and her five-year-old daughter move in next door to Jordan. While she finds Jordan undeniably attractive, falling in love with another womanizing surgeon is the last things she needs.
When a bad fall leaves Jordan in need of assistance, Emma decides to help her while she recovers.
Could those six weeks turn out to be the beginning of a happily ever after, or will they both end up with a broken heart?
I’ve also been working on polishing and revising my novel Something in the Wine, which will be published in a second edition with a stunning new cover next week.

I’ve had several friends from all over Germany visit me this month, so as a result, my working hours were more reasonable this month
By the way, if you missed it, I’m giving away three audiobook copies of my holiday-themed novel Under a Falling Star. There’s still time to enter the drawing here.
My publisher, Ylva, also offers one e-book for free each Sunday in Advent, so you might want to visit the Ylva Publishing website on Sundays and on December 24.
We’re also participating in Women & Word‘s big Hootenanny, which gives you a chance to win a lesbian fiction book every day for twelve days, starting on December 12.
So, plenty of chances for free reading material!
