Never You Wins 3rd Place in the Erotic Romance Category of the 2019 “When Sparks Fly” contest!

I’m thrilled and honored to share the news that Never You has officially won 3rd Place 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.

With a smart, snarky heroine and a too-sexy-for-his-own-good chef hero stuck working together in a backcountry ski hut, 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.

A couple of weeks ago, I found out Never You also took 2nd Place in the OKRWA IDA Awards. At this point, all three of my novellas have finaled in two contests, and In Deep was a winner of the N.N. Light Award for Best Erotic Romance last year. Finaling and winning contests is amazing validation, and super exciting–especially for a newer author like myself (though I suspect it never gets old). I do love being to say I’m an award-winning author!

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 won:
