So if you're part of my fan group, or you've been hanging out at my fanpage, I've dropped a few hints at a secret project. I've been dying to tell you guys since I started, but when you're working in a group, you learn to keep a secret. But the time has come to reveal my secret project and I hope you're as excited as I am! Ready to find out what it is?
Fall Into Romance
Early this year I was invited to take part in a secret project involving several other authors. We were given the task of writing a sweet romance and having our main characters adopt a pet at the local animal shelter's annual fundraising festival. If you've read my Holly and Mr. Ivy, you know I love having animals help out with a romance. Fall Into Romance is a new boxed set coming this October to your favorite eReader. And guess what? Preorders begin now at a bargain price of only 99¢! Not only will you get my newest book, more about that in a bit, but you'll also get novellas from nine other amazing authors, including a couple of my personal favorites. Each story promises a sweet romance with lots of heart and at least one adorable pet to help nudge those silly humans along. There will be lots of laughter, perhaps some tears, and heart-warming love to take the nip out of the fall air. Curious what it's about?
Surround yourself in the romance of the autumn season with 10 heartwarming, sweet novellas from the USA Today, national bestselling, and award-winning authors. Each story takes you inside the heart of a small town-its people-and features adorable animal friends in need of a forever home. Take a trip to Romance, Oregon, where falling in love has never been easier and happily-ever-after is guaranteed!

So you're probably wondering about my contribution, Katie's Chance for Romance. The first character, though he plays a only a small role, who came into my mind was a gorgeous buckskin gelding named Chance. From there, the rest of the story grew with a pair of dogs, a lively aunt and uncle, and of course our main couple. It's been one of my most fun projects to date and I can't wait for you to enjoy it!
Katie Mackall broke up with high school sweetheart Mike Elders when he made a decision which deviated from their plans. Five years later he returns to Romance and she can't seem to shake him from her life, or her heart. When Mike rescues her from car troubles at Finding Forever's Fall Festival, Katie must decide if she's going to let go of her lingering doubts and give her heart the lead.
Mike never forgot Katie, and when he accepts a teaching position in Romance he hopes to have a second chance with her. But their complicated past and a PTA mom who won't get out of his way, doesn't make it easy. An instant connection with Katie's new dog may not be enough to win her heart, but determination and patience, with just the right touch of romance, might.
