I promised you I had a lot planned for 2021…well here’s your first look at everything I’ve got cooking. 🔥 It’s going to be a HUGE year of releases!
I’ve already told you about ELEMENTARY ROMANTIC CALCULUS, the next book in the Chemistry Lessons series, which will follow a math professor to the small town of Crowder, Texas.
In that book, you’ll learn that Crowder’s one claim to fame is that it’s the headquarters of the King’s Creamery ice cream company—and you’ll get to meet some of the King brothers who make up the younger generation of the most powerful family in town.
That story will spin-off a whole new series about the King siblings, whose tyrannical CEO father runs King’s Creamery and the town with an iron hand. The first two books in the King Family series will release this year:
🍦 MY CONE AND ONLY, a brother’s best friend romance (July 20, 2021)
🍦 CREAM AND PUNISHMENT, an enemies-to-lovers second chance romance (Oct 5, 2021)
The rest of the King Family books will release in 2022, and you can expect more ice cream puns, more of your favorite tropes, and more trouble-making King siblings stumbling down the Rocky Road to happily ever after.
In the meantime, make sure you preorder ELEMENTARY ROMANTIC CALCULUS:

Mia has had her whole life mapped out since she was 18. She’s supposed to follow up her math PhD with a research postdoc, but her 20-year tenure plan takes a surprise deviation when she’s forced to settle for a temporary teaching job at a small-town university.
It’s not easy adapting to rural life when you’re an inveterate city girl, but Mia tries to make the best of it until she can get the heck out of Podunk—er, Crowder, Texas. Things finally start to look up after a run-in with some terrifying local wildlife sends her careening into the arms of a sexy goat farmer/cheesemaker.
Mia finds herself unexpectedly drawn to Josh’s gruff cowboy charms, especially after she learns what lies behind the thick walls he’s built around his heart. The deeper their connection grows, the more Crowder starts to feel like home.
But Mia can’t afford to stay. Not unless she’s willing to give up on her dream—or trade it in for a new one.
ELEMENTARY ROMANTIC CALCULUS is a full-length standalone novel and the sixth book in the Chemistry Lessons series of contemporary romances featuring STEM heroines. Each book in the series focuses on a brand new couple with their own happily ever after and can be read in any order.

Dawn Botstein is doing just fine after her divorce, thank you very much.
She’s got her yarn store to run, her house to herself for the first time in her life, and no use for men anymore. That is until the hottie silver fox who walks into her store turns out to be her old high school crush—the guy who rejected her 30 years ago.
No way is she going to lose her head over him this time, no matter how well he wears that salt-and-pepper lumberjack beard. Okay, so he’s the opposite of her ex in every way, and his attention gives her a thrill she thought she’d never feel again. She’s not risking her heart again.
Mike Pilota is having a mid-life crisis. Only instead of buying a red sports car he can’t afford and dressing like a 25-year-old who’s time-traveled from the 1990s, he quit his job after his second divorce to move closer to his recently widowed mother.
He didn’t expect to run into Dawn again, but as soon as he lays eyes on her he’s utterly smitten. So he sets out to make up for past mistakes and prove he can be the kind of man she deserves.
But is it too late for second chances? Or will these two lonely hearts find a way back to each other?
'Mad About Ewe' is a full-length contemporary romance and can be read as a standalone. Book #1 in the Common Threads series, Seduction in the City World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

“Just friends” is all Brooke and Dylan have ever been. (Except for that one night in high school, but they don’t talk about that.) Growing up, he was her protector. Her confidante. The one guy she could always trust.
Now she’s a marine biologist working toward her PhD in California, and he’s an underwear model in New York. Dylan’s only in town for a few days, crashing on Brooke’s couch and repaying the favor by acting as her date to a friend’s wedding.
It was totally an accident she saw him naked.
After that, “just friends” goes out the window in favor of friends with benefits.
It’s all going great…until it isn’t.
Dylan’s got a ticket back to New York at the end of the week, and Brooke may have accidentally broken his heart. Can they navigate these uncharted relationship waters? Or has she tanked her oldest friendship?
Barnes & Noble
It's heeeeeere!!! Maybe This Christmas is AVAILABLE NOW for only 99¢!
Who's excited to read this holiday romance? I can't believe it's taken me this long to write a best friends-to-lovers book, because it's one of my favorite tropes.
The story starts in 2010 when the two main characters are in their senior year of high school. I had do some research to remind myself what the world was like ten years ago and to imagine what it must have felt like to graduate from high school that year. A LOT has changed in the last decade, and this book follows Alex and Lucas as they grow into adults, checking in with them every year on Christmas day.
