I did a book thing. Actually several.

Hi Friends! Big news! But first, some story background.

Lots of expansion happened at the SaFleur household over the last 18 months. (Thanks, pandemic.). My waistline. Our wine consumption. Callum’s girth (such a chonk). And guess what else expanded? My writing!

You expect lots of smexy times from my writing cave. That’s not going to change. But I wrote several new books that are, um, different. I wrote… sexy romantic comedies! 

I gotta tell you, I ducking love these books! And their covers.

But my first thought writing this news was ya’ll are going to hate me for exploring a new genre and following my fickle muse. (Don’t leave me, K?) But maybe you might enjoy more laughs right now? I know these last few months I needed to giggle and swoon.

Does that mean I won’t be writing any more Elite Doms or Shakedown books? Not. at. all. In fact, if you subscribe to my email newsletter, News From Elizabeth, you’re reading a serial starring Alexander, Rebecca and Eric from Invincible!

As for the romcoms, expect lots of chemistry amongst these pages. No bedroom door stays closed for long around me. Why miss the good stuff?

So, without further ado, here’s what you’re in for…

It Was All the Pie’s Fault 
Releases February 22 (At the rate this year is flying by February is, like, tomorrow.)

But she’s perfect for himas a fake girlfriend to appease his family-friendly boss. She’s in love with someone else, after all. And, this girl needs help when it comes to men. A lot of it. He’ll help her lure Russell into dreaded wedded bliss so long as she poses as his date.

Except Chloe’s wishes begin to go haywirestarting with granting Nick’s and turning all those fake kisses into smoking hot moments of passion.

You’ll like this story if you enjoy fake relationships, opposites attract, and fated mates/match. Expect to laugh—a lot.

 
It Was All the Cat’s Fault 
Releases April 5
Pre-order: Amazon, Apple Books, Kobo, Barnes & Noble
 
Eve can juggle work, school and a fixer-upper house just fine with a little help from YouTube. Well, she could, if her beloved cat, Thor, would stop getting into trouble—like getting stuck behind the walls. Thankfully, plumbers make house calls at ridiculous-o’clock in the morning.

Enter Brent who not only has all the power tools she needs, he looks like the God Thor. A mountain of muscle with movie-star hair, shining green eyes, and a perfectly scruffed, chiseled jaw. Just great. She doesn’t have time for all the lusty neediness rising where it should not be rising.

Eve reminds herself and her weakening knees that she’s a strong, independent woman determined to make it without anyone’s help. But as more renovation and cat-astrophes pile on, she finds her fingers doing the walking to call Brent to her rescue.

And she has to decide if keeping him at arm’s length fits her life plan, or if it’s the biggest miscalculation she’s ever made.

You’ll love this story if you’re into opposites attract and smoking hot mayhem and madnessmuch of which is caused by one Maine Coon cat.

 
It Was All the Daisy’s Fault
Releases May 17 
 
Writing is Scarlett’s destiny, her purpose in life. If she could only finish her novel. She keeps getting interrupted by all the people in need—and animals and trees and flowers.

Like Cole. He splats face-first before her feet like it was fate. Kismet. A sign. He was just the inspiration she needed for her book. Tall, dark hair, glittering eyes. A surgeon sporting a super hot, disapproving stern face. Surely, a smile lived inside him somewhere.

But Cole has no plans to get involved with anyone. Certainly not a sassy, hippie who thinks flowers have feelings. Still, somehow he keeps tripping into her, even when he tries his hardest to stay away.

That incredible urge to back her up against a wall and do things to her? That chemistry couldn’t be real. It just couldn’t be.

You’ll love this story if you like opposites attract, can’t-help-yourself smexy moments, and grumpy hero meets Little Miss Saucy.

~EXCERPT~
 
She grasped one of his hands and brought it over her breastbone. “You need to stop trying to save me, Declan.” This man was good. He deserved someone good.
     “Not trying to save you. I’m trying to love you.” His hot breath moved over her face, and a tingle cascaded through her entire body.
     Then he doesn’t know what love is. But then again, did she? “Why?”
     “Do I need a reason?”
     “Most people would.”
     He rested his forehead against hers, his large hand held between hers, keeping space between them. “I’m not most people.”
     No, he wasn’t. He was remarkable and infuriating and as stubborn as her cat. “I’ve given you nothing.”
     “You’ve given me everything.” Now he held both of her hands in his between them.
     He must not want much then. The cool breeze kicked up, a sharp contrast to the warmth of his skin. Insects droned in the trees around them and sirens were going off in the distance. But his eyes glittered in the dark, and that’s when her resolve slithered to the concrete like a sail deflating in dying wind. He had always looked at her like that—like she was someone to him. Like she mattered.
     His thumbs moved over her knuckles. “You and I are the same in many ways. But your strength makes me stronger. Makes me want to fight harder.” He pulled her closer. One of the crutches clattered to the concrete. Neither of them moved to get it. “You make me want to be worthy of you.”
     Worthy? Her eyes pricked. “I don’t deserve that.” God, could she hear herself?
     His cane slipped down his arm and dropped over his wrist to land in one hand. His other hand—the rogue—moved up to cradle her cheek. “Oh, yes, you do. I’d say we deserve each other—and the world that doesn’t want us to be happy? It can go to hell.”
     She glanced at his lips. “You want to kiss me.” It wasn’t a question or a statement. More like utter disbelief this man would settle for just a kiss—from her.
     “I do. But I won’t. You have to kiss me now.” One side of his mouth inched upward. “For making me wait six years.”
     A slight laugh cut through her chest and up her throat. “You wish.”
     He sobered. “I do wish.”
     Her hands made their way to his pecs, the cashmere of his overcoat soft under her palms, his muscle hard underneath.
    “There can’t be more.”
     He nodded once.
     So, she rose up on her one good foot and placed her lips on his.
