"Ross's romantic women's fiction debut is a sweet, funny tale of a woman's gradual self-discovery..." - Publishers Weekly

Frosted Cowboy by Charlene Ross is on sale for $0.99 on Amazon until June 13! The sale also applies in the U.K.

Laney Delaney was living the dream. She had a fabulous fiancé and a career as a couture wedding dress designer. But after catching her (not-so-fabulous) fiancé cheating and being accused of upstaging one of her brides at a wedding, Laney finds herself with no boyfriend, no job and no plan. 

After some serious soul searching, Laney is determined to start over. She embarks on a design career that takes her from a Rodeo Drive boutique to a flea market stall, but it's worth it—even if it means she has to suck up to her childhood nemesis for help. 

At the same time, three very different men vie for her attention: a masseuse/screenwriter with an unfortunate reputation, a stable fireman who just doesn't spark a romantic flame, and the fireman's ridiculously hot co-worker whose illicit under-the-mistletoe kiss still burns Laney's lips. 

Professionally and romantically, Laney is on the verge of reinventing her life and finding her true passion—but can she learn to trust again and believe in herself?

We're delighted to announce the relaunch of The Paris Effect by K.S.R. Burns, a title Velvet Morning Press recently acquired from Booktrope.

"... a can't-put-down-book... never stops being an absorbing adventure--not until the gratifying final moments... A lovely ode to Paris, friendship, spontaneity and forks. . .both on the plate and in the road."
- Kirkus Reviews

Friendship, loss… and a tantalizing trip to Paris in this highly praised debut novel!

Amy and Kat had a plan: A secret trip to Paris. Even Amy's husband wouldn't know about it. But when Amy loses Kat, the "friend of her heart," to cancer, she knows the plan, too, has disappeared forever. Or has it?

Guided by memories of her friend and dissatisfaction with her own calorie-counting life in Phoenix, Amy sneaks off to Paris while her husband is away on a business trip. Once there, she's robbed, stalked, arrested and kidnapped (almost). Worse, she finds that her numerous issues have come right along with her.

Through her adventures, laced with luscious descriptions of food and Paris, Amy learns that often in life, love and friendship, nothing is exactly as it seems. Grab a croissant and settle in for a decidedly non-touristy trip to the City of Light.

Add this to your ereader for great summer reading--at an amazing price! Mothers Ruined by Aimee Horton is on sale through June 9 for $0.99 on Amazon. (The sale applies in the U.K. as well.)

A hilarious and honest British mom’s madcap adventures in suburbia! 

Dottie Harris has a knack for stumbling into chaotic situations, gin & tonic in hand. When Dottie and Henry Harris move to their new house, Dottie's only desire is to make friends in the neighbourhood. But Dottie, just home from delivering her third child, is struggling to adjust to village life. Recently promoted Henry travels a lot, and the neighbours aren't very welcoming (although that could be because when Dottie first met them, she had dyed her children green). 

So when Dottie accidentally hears her neighbours' conversations over her baby monitor, she can't help but use the sneaky information in her quest to build new friendships. 

Of course, eavesdropping never ends well, and when Dottie discovers that two of her neighbours are having an affair, she's horrified. Worse still, the locals are convinced she's the one who's doing the cheating. It's up to Dottie to clear her name and uncover (and expose) the real cheat—in her signature haphazard way!

 Daphne Saito, a beautiful and talented Hollywood screenwriter, might look like she has the perfect life, but on the inside she's lost. She's wandered from one meaningless relationship to the next, and now—just as she breaks up with her longtime boyfriend Dan—she meets someone new, someone she could fall in love with. But Daphne, still traumatized by an accident involving her best friend, Greta, five years earlier, is afraid to love. Harm has always come to those close to her. 

Over five life-changing days, Daphne lets her guard down and steps toward this new love. But trouble is never far behind. Dan, angry at Daphne's departure, has targeted an innocent young woman, someone close to Daphne's new love, as part of a plan for revenge. And an enigmatic woman from Daphne's past returns with a vendetta of her own. Danger is on the horizon for all of Daphne's friends—and for her.
