Happy New Year, friends! I hope your 2022 is off to a good start (or as well as can be expected in these strange times.) Here's a quick peek at my tentative 2022 publishing calendar. I'm planning to get 4 new books into your hands, as well as a few other things!
On February 8th, the German translation of Read Between the Lines will release! It's called Wenn Herz auf Zufall trifft, and how adorable is that cover?!?!
No Rings Attached (Ms. Right book 2) will be out on April 12th. If you've read Read Between the Lines, this is Grace and Lia's book. It's got fake dating, a wedding, only one bed, and a road trip!
Stay tuned for a special as-yet-unannounced project in May! More information on that one in February
She'll Steal Your Heart (Midnight in Manhattan #4) will be out in August. It's an age gap, online friends to lovers romance set around a cat cafe. More info on this one soon!
Look at Us Now is the 5th and final book in the Midnight in Manhattan series, and will be out in October(ish). It will follow Josie and Eve for an HEA after the HEA
I'm also hoping to get my Midnight in Manhattan books into audio this year, and will be rebranding some of my older titles...more on that soon!
It's here! It's here! It's release day for Read Between the Lines, and if you couldn't tell, I am VERY EXCITED that you all can finally read it! 😊 And even more exciting, this is my first book with a simultaneous audio release. The audiobook is narrated by the amazing Abby Craden, so if you're an audiophile, give it a listen.
One of my favorite romance tropes has always been when two people are flirting with each other online but don't know that they already know each other in real life, especially if they're enemies in real life. There's nothing like that moment when they finally realize the truth! I just love it, and I had so much fun with this setup in Read Between the Lines. I hope you love it too!
From award-winning author Rachel Lacey comes a playful romance about a Manhattan bookstore owner and a reclusive author who love to hate—and hate to love—each other.
Books are Rosie Taft’s life. And ever since she took over her mother’s beloved Manhattan bookstore, they’ve become her home too. The only thing missing is her own real-life romance like the ones she loves to read about, and Rosie has an idea of who she might like to sweep her off her feet. She’s struck up a flirty online friendship with lesbian romance author Brie, and what could be more romantic than falling in love with her favorite author?
Jane Breslin works hard to keep her professional and personal lives neatly separated. By day, she works for the family property development business. By night, she puts her steamier side on paper under her pen name: Brie. Jane hasn’t had much luck with her own love life, but her online connection with a loyal reader makes Jane wonder if she could be the one.
When Rosie learns that her bookstore’s lease has been terminated by Jane’s family’s business, romance moves to the back burner. Even though they’re at odds, there’s no denying the sparks that fly every time they’re together. When their online identities are revealed, will Jane be able to write her way to a happy ending, or is Rosie’s heart a closed book?
