New and Upcoming Books…

Cover of HE'S COME UNDONE: A ROMANCE ANTHOLOGY, with stories by Emma Barry, Olivia Dade (me!), Adriana Herrera, Ruby Lang, and Cat Sebastian. Image features a man in profile looking down, in a suit with his collar undone, looking hot but troubled.

He’s Come Undone, a limited-time anthology featuring me and four of my most talented friends, is here!


For him, control is everything…until it shatters, and now he’s come undone.

“Unraveled”: Math teacher Simon Burnham—cool, calm, controlled—can’t abide problems with no good solution. Which makes his current work assignment, mentoring art teacher Poppy Wick, nothing short of torture. She’s warm but sharp. Chaotic but meticulous. Simultaneously the most frustrating and most alluring woman he’s ever known. And in her free time, she makes murder dioramas. Murder dioramas, for heaven’s sake. But the more tightly wound a man is, the faster he unravels—and despite his best efforts, he soon finds himself attempting to solve three separate mysteries: a murder in miniature, the unexplained disappearance of a colleague…and the unexpected theft of his cold, cold heart.

He’s Come Undone is available in e-book format at Amazon, iBooks, and Kobo, and as a paperback at The Ripped Bodice, Love’s Sweet Arrow, and Amazon!

An aesthetic for Unraveled. The text in the center reads: "The more tightly wound a man is, the faster he unravels." The images involve a man looking concerned in a suit, a spooky-looking dollhouse, a closeup of hands being held, a lovely fat woman splattered with paint, and ominous-looking school lockers.

Coming soon…

Cover of 40-Love by Olivia Dade, with text reading "A THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT  MARYSBURG NOVEL." It shows a pretty fat woman with silver streaks in her hair standing across a tennis net from a handsome man in tennis whites, with both smiling at one another, and palm trees and water in the background.

40-Love is here June 18th!


This match is no game.

When a rogue wave strips Tess Dunn of her bikini top, desperate, half-naked times call for desperate, please-cover-me-kids-are-coming-closer measures. Enter Lucas Karlsson, AKA that flirty Swede in the water nearby. When he prevents her bare buoys from being exposed to fellow vacationers, even an ocean can’t drown the sparks that fly.

Lucas, a former top-level tennis pro now giving lessons at the resort, fled there after the abrupt, painful end to his injury-plagued career. But he’s finally ready to move on with his life—and after a few late-night, hands-on sessions with Tess, he’s eager to prove he’s the ace she wants.

But this match comes with challenges: She’s forty, and at twenty-six, he’s barely old enough to rent a car. Worse, they only have two weeks together before Tess returns to her assistant-principal life in Virginia. During that brief time, they’ll have to play hard, take a few risks, and find out whether their chemistry is a one-shot wonder…or whether they’re meant to be doubles partners for life.


40-Love is available for e-book preorder at Amazon, iBooks, Kobo, and Google Play, and you can find the paperback at The Ripped Bodice, Love’s Sweet Arrow, and Amazon!

And coming later this year…

Cover of Spoiler Alert by Olivia Dade: A handsome blond man in armor is kissing a fat, beautiful, redheaded woman in front of a backdrop of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge.

Spoiler Alert is here October 6th!


Marcus Caster-Rupp has a secret.

The world may know him as Aeneas, star of the biggest show on television, but fanfiction readers call him something else: Book!AeneasWouldNever. Marcus gets out his frustrations with the show through anonymous stories about the internet’s favorite couple, Aeneas and Lavinia. But if anyone discovered his online persona, he’d be finished in Hollywood.

April Whittier has secrets of her own. A hardcore Lavinia fan, she’s long hidden her fanfic and cosplay hobbies from her “real life”—but not anymore. When she dares to post her latest costume creation on Twitter, her plus-size take goes viral. And when Marcus asks her out to spite her internet critics, truth officially becomes stranger than fanfiction.

On their date, Marcus quickly realizes he wants more from April than a one-time publicity stunt. But when he discovers she’s Unapologetic Lavinia Stan, his closest fandom friend, he has one more huge secret to keep from her.

With love and Marcus’s career on the line, can the two of them stop hiding once and for all, or will a match made in fandom end up prematurely cancelled?


Spoiler Alert is available for preorder at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kobo, and Google Play, as well as The Ripped Bodice and Love’s Sweet Arrow!
