Never You Has Finaled in the 2019 “When Sparks Fly” contest!

I’m thrilled and honored to share that Never You is a finalist in the Erotic Romance category of RWA-NYC’s Kathryn Hayes “When Sparks Fly” contest! It’s the third, stand-alone novella in my steamy Emerald mountain ski romance series.

This enemies to lovers stories was one of my favorites to write. It’s a story about not judging a book by its cover and discovering that sometimes what you think you want isn’t what you actually need.

At this point, all three of my novellas have finaled in contests, and In Deep was a winner last year. Which is amazing validation, and super exciting. Even if I don’t win Best Erotic Romance for Never You, I feel like I’ve already won.

Finalist’s manuscripts have been sent to second-round judges for scoring. Winners will be announced on Dec 7th. Please think positive thoughts for me.

Here’s the skinny on Never You

Emerald Mountain Ski Hut Caretaker Morgan Monroe doesn’t do casual relationships. Not anymore. Certainly not with the obnoxious, flirty, too-hot-for-his-own-good chef she’s wanted to strangle all season. He’s the kind of man she wouldn’t date in a million years, even if he were the dating type.

Chef Dan Griffin doesn’t believe in relationships. But a one-night stand to celebrate the end of ski season? Hell yes! Especially with the gorgeous caretaker. She’s sexy but melt-in-your-mouth sweet, the kind of woman who could convince a man to get serious…if he were the relationship type. She kept her distance all winter, but he’s hoping he can convince her to get closer for one night of passion.

When things heat up on a cold winter’s night, will they play it safe or follow their hearts?

In case you’re curious, here is a list of the other awards my novellas have been nominated for or have won:
