Double Trouble Available for Pre-Order

I’m pleased to let you know my new Romantic Comedy, Double Trouble is now available for Pre-Order on Amazon!

DoubleTrouble_850From the first moment coffee mogul, Will Carrington, gazed into the fiery, green eyes of Clare Sullivan, he’s hit with the feeling she does not like him. Not. One. Little. Bit. Used to being the proverbial prize by some gorgeous gold digging fortune hunter, he’s learned to be careful. But with his hunter instincts now on high alert, he’s determined to find out the why behind her stormy-eyed glances.

Top home designer, Clare Sullivan wants absolutely nothing to do with arrogant, self-assured Will Carrington, especially after he called her half-sister a gold digger. When she gets the opportunity to design his multi-million dollar Miami penthouse, she arrives at this office ready to decline his offer, and to tell him exactly what she thinks of his cruel and un-warranted comments.

While there, she overhears his one-sided phone conversation, which seems to further insult her sister. Assuming the worse, Clare makes the rash decision to accept the job and charge him a fortune in the process. Someone needs to teach him a lesson and what better way then with a swift kick in his wallet.

Since she and her sister have different surnames, Clare conveniently hides the connection to her sister. But while she works with Will, she discovers another side to this self-assured, woman-hater. A Jekyll to his Hyde. Charming and professional, he’s nothing like the man she’s heard about. What she doesn’t know is Will Carrington has a few secrets of his own.

The 11th Day of Christmas – Mayan Hot Chocolate!

On the Eleventh Day of Christmas I prepare Mayan Hot Chocolate for my family. We love sitting around the fire and sipping this decadent spicy-hot chocolate treat. It’s spicy hot so it’s not for kids.  So, I’ve included Peppermint Hot Chocolate Recipe for them!


2/3 cup whole milk

1/3 cup heavy cream

3 tablespoons instant hot chocolate mix (Choose a really good brand, like William-Sonoma)

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 pinch cayenne pepper


Mix the hot chocolate mix, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper together in a mug.
Pour the milk into a glass measuring cup; heat in microwave on High until it begins to boil, about 2 minutes. Slowly pour over the mixture in the mug, stirring with a small whisk as you pour. Enjoy immediately.


PEPPERMINT HOT CHOCOLATEdarcy flynn romances

1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3 drops peppermint oil

I’m thrilled to introduce you to Jessica Jefferson and her wonderful Regency romance, Taming Miss Tisdale! You’re in for a treat because I’ve read this book and absolutely loved it!

Taming Miss Tisdale by Jessica Jefferson


Miss Tamsin Tisdale believes herself to be completely unsuitable for London life. After a myriad of social mishaps, and the potential ruination of her family name, she’s shipped away to her cousin’s northern estate. Only after she accepts the type of existence Society dictates she must follow will she be welcomed home.

Marcus Winston, the Duke of Grayson, has a lackluster reputation. The last in a dying line, he’s endured a protected life—rank with privilege, but encumbered by isolation. After a brief encounter with rebellion, he learns the devastating consequences of his carelessness and willingly accepts living life from inside his gilded cage.

However, a chance meeting with the brazen Miss Tisdale gives Marc the opportunity to reinvent himself into the man he’s always dreamed of being. But when his deception comes to light, and ghosts from both their pasts threaten to unravel the intimacy they’ve come to cherish, will either of them set their fears aside long enough to embrace love? Or will Miss Tisdale’s stubbornness divide them?

About the Author

Jessica Jefferson makes her home in northern Indiana, or as she likes to think of it – almost Chicago. Jessica originally attended college in hopes of achieving an English degree and writing the next great American novel. Ten years later she was working as a registered nurse and reading historical romance when she decided to give writing another go-round.

Jessica writes likes she speaks – which has a tendency to be fast paced and humorous. She is heavily inspired by sweeping, historical romance novels, but aims to take those key emotional elements and inject a fresh blend of quick dialogue and comedy.

The 10th Day of Christmas – Memories & Traditions and Linda O’Connor!

On the Tenth Day of Christmas  I’d like to share one of my favorite Christmas darcyflynnromacnes.commemories. Growing up, Christmas for me and my family was always on Christmas Eve. My father would take my older brothers and I out to see the lights. The night time, the old fashion, multi-colored lights and the anticipation of what was to come were simply magical. An hour later we’d arrive home to find that Santa had come and gone! And there under the tree were all of our toys.

For years, I wondered how in the world Santa could know we’d be out. LOL!  Then, on Christmas morning we’d leave around 4 am to drive from New Orleans to Albany, Georgia. I’d wake up a few hours before we arrived at my grandparent’s house. I adored my grandmother and with my cousins a short block away, I couldn’t think of any other place else I’d rather be on Christmas Day! I’ll always treasure those magic years!

Speaking of magic, meet romance author Linda O’Connor. I adore romantic comedies and Perfectly Honest sounds delightful!

Perfectly Honest by Linda O’Connor

Linda O'Connor  Perfectly Honest   Book Cover

You never know where your words will take you.

When Mikaela Finn agreed to be Sam’s ‘fiancée’ for a weekend, she probably should have told him that she’s a doctor.

Sam O’Brien, aka ‘Dr. Eye Candy’, is trying to shed his playboy reputation and convince a small town hospital that he’s ready to settle down. But when his ‘fiancée’ helps deliver a baby in the middle of the meet and greet, it’s a bit of a shock. If he’d known the whole truth, he might have done things a little differently because somehow his ‘fiancée’ ends up stealing his job and his heart. Not exactly the change he wanted.

Lies and deceit – it’s a match made in heaven!

Perfectly Honest will be available at Amazon on January 14, 2015.

About the Author

I’ve been writing for three years, and I’m thrilled that Soul Mate Publishing will be publishing my latest novel, Perfectly Honest.I love reading romantic comedies so naturally that’s what I write. I never aspired to be a writer, but now I’m addicted. I love it. I balance writing with my work as a physician at an Urgent Care Clinic and being a mom to three sons (luckily grown and capable of throwing together a decent meal, in a pinch). Plus I like to keep active and cycle, cross-country ski, skate, walk with my husband, or dance every day.The idea to write came after working with young adults. There were some basics I thought they should know – mental health symptoms, birth control myths, how to take ownership of their health. I thought hey, if David Chilton of The Wealthy Barber fame can dole out financial advice in a barbershop, maybe I could dole out medical advice in a Romance novel. That’s how my first novel, She’s Not a Fan, was born.

For many years, I taught clinical skills to medical students and spent a lot of time writing detailed roles for actor-patients. It was great practice for developing characters in my stories. Joining the Romance Writers of America, taking online workshops, (and reading) all helped improve my writing. Medical school was challenging, but it was nothing compared to figuring out where commas go, POV, or sorting out verb tense (simple past, past perfect, past perfect progressive – did they know there were 25 other letters they could have used to name those things?)

Obviously I’m still learning, but I love the process.

I don’t write about people I know, but I definitely take inspiration from snippets of conversations or from the emotion I feel when I talk to people. My designated writing space is any place with a view of Lake Ontario, preferably outside (for three of the four seasons).

About the Author

I spent much of my life in New Jersey but have also lived in Florida and Wyoming. I currently reside in the lake region of central North Carolina. Living close to water, there are days when fog rolls in off the lake and creates an eerie mist. I love it but my dog, Molly, takes one look and refuses to leave the house.

When I’m not writing I read (lately with the help of a powerful pair of readers). For me there’s nothing better than a good who-done- it or a steamy romance! On rainy days, I enjoy watching old movies especially film noir and I can spend hours in an antique store.

I have recently moved to North Carolina and I’m delighted to say that southern hospitality truly exists!

Rogue’s Son Sale Starts Today!

99¢ from November 22 – 28, darcy flynn, joy dent, sweet romance

Tough, driven Kit Kendall has replaced her frills and dresses with no nonsense haircuts and wranglers, years ago. As owner of Sage Brush, the once thriving west Texas bed and breakfast ranch, she now struggles daily to keep her business afloat. Since McCabe Resort Lodge reopened next door as a multi-million dollar hotel, her financial difficulties compound, as she suffers one cancellation after another.
Just when she thought things couldn’t get any worse, Kit’s childhood sweetheart turned nemesis returns as the new owner of the resort that’s now putting her out of business, resurrecting memories she thought she’d buried long ago.
Cowboy, entrepreneur Sam Dawson has returned to Sugar Creek, Texas after six years of exile with a secret that could destroy Kit’s happiness. He left town because of it and for the past two years has secretly tried to make it right. Having failed, he now returns to make one last attempt to undo the tangled web created by his father.
Set in motion by his father’s Last Will and Testament and with the clock ticking, Sam has only weeks to convince Kit to sell him her ranch or reveal the truth that will break her heart.


Sam could tell she was spitting mad. He watched her jerk the seatbelt over her chest several times before he reached over to click it into place.
He straightened up and glanced at her as he turned into the street. “Is that steam I see coming from your ears?”
Kit responded by snapping her arms across her chest.
He heaved a sigh and shook his head. “She told you, didn’t she?”
Kit didn’t say a word she just stared out the window.
“I’m sorry you had to find out that way. I was going to stop by tonight and tell you myself.”
“How thoughtful of you. So. What do you want?”
“For access to the land. Otherwise my guests have no place to hunt or fish.”
“Sell me the road frontage I need.” He’d deliberately forced her hand and hated himself for it. But far better for her to part with a few measly acres than lose everything. And if she ended up hating him in the process then so be it. He cursed both their fathers under his breath.
Kit’s mouth fell open and she slowly turned to face him, hoarse laughter tumbling from her lips.
“You’ve got to be kidding. After this stunt, do you really think I’d sell an inch of my property to you? One Kendall made the mistake of caving to a Dawson’s blackmail, but let me assure you, this one won’t.”
He hated what he was about to do. Hated to force her hand, but she gave him no choice. When did she become so stubborn? Gritting his teeth, he continued.
“Then I won’t allow you to use the Lowman property for access. You’ll be forced to shut down. Sage Brush will close. You’ll be through. You’ll lose your property to the bank when they foreclose. Then it’ll only be a matter of time before I have it all anyway. Is that really what you want?”
“Why you no good, conniving, lowlife.”
“Look at it this way, if I get the road frontage I need, then you get to stay in business. It’s a win-win.”
They slowed to a stop outside of her house.
Kit opened the truck door then turned to face him.
“You would actually do that? You’d put Trip and Jake out of work? And what about Maggie? Have you even thought of her?”
“I told you, you wouldn’t like it.”

Christmas Journey

darcy flynn romances, joy dent

I just finished reading Christmas Journey by my friend and fellow sweet romance author, Patricia Kiyono.

Truly a must read for the holidays! Add it to your Wish List!

Here’s my review!

Christmas Journey, a delightful and heartwarming Christmas story is not only inspirational, but also highly entertaining. Miss Kiyono’s casts of characters literally jump off the page and into your heart. I fell in love with Mike Sikkema from the beginning. He is the perfect hero for the beautiful and lovely widow, Helen DeGroot.

I really identified with Helen in so many ways. Her son’s ‘litany of criticisms’ made me smile, especially where it concerned ‘all her stuff’! Hum…sounded a lot like conversations at my house. J I also loved seeing a second chance at romance blossom between this beautiful middle-aged woman and single, never been married, handsome man.

I found Miss Kiyono’s insights on how each generation views ‘aging’, both poignant and relative. She’s woven together certain inevitable truths about life and aging with heartwarming humor. You’ll not only be touched, but you’ll laugh out loud, and you’ll smile a lot.

This story is about family relationships, and romance and how, ‘happily ever after’ is never too late.

5 Stars!



Welcome Alicia Dean!

I’d Like to Welcome Contemporary Suspense and Paranormal Author,  Alicia Dean!

I met Alicia online through an author site and I consider her a friend and mentor. I’m proud to say she’s also the editor for my most recent release. Speaking of recent releases, Alicia’s new paranormal, Caster’s Unfriendly Ghost, is on our docket today. But first, let’s meet Alicia!

Welcome, Alicia! I have a few questions for you. 🙂

If you had to name the three biggest differences between you and Emily Tillman, the heroine in Caster’s Unfriendly Ghost, what would they be?

She is young and hot.

She wants marriage

She is trying to resist Reese Caster, no way would I do that. 🙂

I’m about half way through your book and I have to say Reese Caster would definitely be hard to resist!

Okay, next question: If you could have any meal delivered to your door right now, what would it be?

Steak Florentine, sautéed mushrooms, loaded baked potato, dinner rolls, red velvet cheesecake.

Okay, now you’re making me hungry. If you only knew how many years it’s been since I’ve had a loaded baked potato.

Finally, if you could have created any one great work of art (novel, song, etc.) by another artist, what would it be?

Gone with the Wind, for the novel. I’m totally jealous and in awe of the magnificence and beauty of the story, and of the longevity of its popularity. Suspicious Minds by Elvis, it’s one of my favorites of his songs, and it was a huge hit. (I cheated and named two)

Cheating here is perfectly acceptable! And, I agree, it is amazing how Gone with the Wind has stood the test of time in the literary world. Then, there’s the King…enough said.


darcy flynn, joy dent, alicia dean, caster's unfriendly ghost, darcyflynnromances.comA year after her husband’s death, Emily Tillman is ready to start dating again, and hopefully, find what she’s always wanted—marriage and children. But the man who broke her heart five years ago is back. And he’s anything but the marrying kind.

Confirmed bachelor Reese Caster is perfectly content with his life—and he’s finally over Emily, the one woman who almost made him commit. Now, his world is rocked when her dead husband shows up, demanding that Reese pursue Emily to keep her out of the clutches of her latest suitor—a jerk who is only after her money.

Being around Emily again has made Reese reconsider his bachelor life style. But now that the threat of the other man is gone, the pesky ghost wants Reese to break things off. Can he and Emily find the love they were denied, or will the ghost of her dead husband destroy their chances?

Okay friends, now it’s time to read an excerpt form Caster’s Unfriendly Ghost. Enjoy!

After everyone else had left, Rachel hung behind. She crossed her arms and scowled at Emily.
“You’re doing it again.”
Emily raised her brows. “Doing what?”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about.” Emily focused on gathering the tickets and other items, refusing to meet Rachel’s gaze.
“For Caster. You’re falling in love with him all over again.”
Emily was silent for several moments, and her friend let out an exasperated breath. “Come on, we’ve been friends since we were kids. You’ve never lied to me before. Admit it.”
Emily cleared her throat and let out a long sigh. “I don’t ever think I unfell.”
Rachel raised her brows as if she hadn’t expected her to admit it so quickly. “Oh Lordy, girlfriend, are you in trouble.”
“Most definitely a possibility.”
“What are you going to do?”
“I don’t know exactly.”
“Maybe you should take things to the next level with Ken. It will keep you from making a mistake with Caster.”
“I don’t need one man to keep me from making a fool of myself over another.” I hope… “But I do need your help. Trade me roles. I can’t keep doing this with Caster night after night.”
“You want my Lizzie Borden ax? You want me to cozy up to that…monster?”
Emily winced. “Yeah, please? For me?”
Rachel let out a heavy sigh and tugged the wildly frazzled wig from her head. “Fine, then. Anything to keep you out of Satan’s clutches.”
Emily chuckled. “So, don’t hold back. How do you really feel about him?”

darcy flynn, joy dent, bulletproof coffee, national coffee dayWhile visiting my son in Los Angeles last month, I discovered a new organic coffee. One I’d never heard of before. It’s called Bulletproof Coffee. They’ve developed a ‘special process to grow harvest, process, roast and ship their coffee beans to prevent contamination from mold toxins that are common in food products from the tropics.’

After I read that on their flyer, I was hooked! I had to get me some of this! 🙂 I’m drinking my Bulletproof Coffee right now!  Dave Asprey developed this delicious and healthy coffee. Visit his blog and website for an amazing education on brain health and diet. Yea, I said_brain health! Read on…

Coffee Lovers Watch The Link Below for Dave’s special recipe for morning brain power, where he adds his Brain Octane Oil and organic Goats butter to his coffee! I know, you’re thinking…weird…but, I’m telling you, this stuff is amazing!
