New and Upcoming Books…

Ship Wrecked washes ashore on November 15th, and I have some amazing preorder bonuses for my readers!

The illustrated cover of Olivia Dade's SHIP WRECKED, featuring a cerulean blue background and a line drawing of steep cliffs in front of an ocean, with a couple in full color in front. They're both fat and gorgeous, and they're embracing and about to kiss. He's wearing a suit, and she's wearing ripped clothing and leather armor suitable for a Viking shield-maiden.

Maria’s one-night stand—the thick-thighed, sexy Viking of a man she left without a word or a note—just reappeared. Apparently, Peter’s her surly Gods of the Gates co-star, and they’re about to spend the next six years filming on a desolate Irish island together. She still wants him…but he now wants nothing to do with her.

Peter knows this role could finally transform him from a forgettable character actor into a leading man. He also knows a failed relationship with Maria could poison the set, and he won’t sabotage his career for a woman who’s already walked away from him once. Given time, maybe they can be cooperative colleagues or friends—possibly even best friends—but not lovers again. No matter how much he aches for her.

For years, they don’t touch off-camera. But on their last night of filming, their mutual restraint finally shatters, and all their pent-up desire explodes into renewed passion. Too bad they still don’t have a future together, since Peter’s going back to Hollywood, while Maria’s returning to her native Sweden. She thinks she needs more than he can give her, but he’s determined to change her mind, and he’s spent the last six years waiting. Watching. Wanting.

His shipwrecked Swede doesn’t stand a chance.

Ship Wrecked comes out on November 15, 2022 and is available for preorder at Amazon, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kobo, and Google Play, as well as The Ripped Bodice and Love’s Sweet Arrow! (For more vendors carrying the U.S. edition, please click here.)

Ship Wrecked is also available in German.

There are several Ship Wrecked preorder bonuses, but here’s the queen of them all: I teamed up with Leni Kauffman (my amazing cover artist for the entire Spoiler Alert series) and Avon Books to create an exclusive alternate dust jacket for the book! It’s a gorgeous, heartfelt homage to old-school historical romances and their amazing clinch covers.

An illustrated graphic that looks like lavender paper torn in several key spots, revealing a woman with long blond hair who appears to be naked with her fist in the brown hair of a bearded man who appears to be kneeling in front of her.

Leni tackled an old-school front cover, one featuring a non-zero amount of tasteful nudity, and she slayed it, because she is a goddess. I wrote a breathless, overwrought new blurb appropriate for the occasion and shot a new author photo (which…well, you have to see it). The wonderful people at Avon labored over the rest of the cover and made it equally gorgeous and vintage-looking. You would not BELIEVE how beautifully it came out. The font! The author bio! Even the Avon logo!

Only a limited number of dust jackets will be printed. If you want one, you should reserve it soon. Here’s how:

**While supplies last, if you preorder the Ship Wrecked paperback from Love’s Sweet Arrow, you will receive not only the exclusive alternate dust jacket with original artwork by Leni Kauffman, but also a signed bookplate.**

An image showing a piece of brown paper torn away to reveal a blond woman looking downward.
An illustrated graphic showing a fist gripping a handful of brown hair against a pink sky background.

This offer is open to readers around the world! Non-U.S. customers can get a price quote that includes shipping costs by emailing the store at And no matter where you live, the order must be placed by November 11th.

But maybe you prefer to read ebooks or audiobooks, or maybe you borrow all your books from the library? If so, we have preorder bonuses for you too! (Even if you choose to preorder from Love’s Sweet Arrow for the physical dust jacket and signed bookplate, you might want to add one of these options too, because there’s an extra freebie involved. Fans of Carah and/or Summer from the Gods of the Gates cast: YOUR TIME HAS COME.)

WHEW. I know that was a lot of info, but I hope you’re as excited as I am about everything that’s being offered!

P.S. And in case you’re wondering: Yes, that is Maria’s fist gripping a handful of Peter’s hair. You might want to note that he, uh, doesn’t appear to be standing? 🙂
