I've mentioned the multi-author Indigo Bay Sweet Romance Series, and I'm happy to announce I'm part of the world now! Today is the launch of four short Holiday stories set in Indigo Bay. Each heartwarming story is standalone but shares a common setting. The stories are also priced at only 99 cents!

My story, SWEET HOLIDAY WISHES, features Army Staff Sergeant Mitchell Hamilton and his wife, Lizzy, who are mentioned in my Beach Brides story JENNY. You'll also get a peek at what Dare and Jenny are doing for the holidays!


Lizzy Hamilton wants to skip Christmas this year. Working as a nurse while holding her marriage to an Army Ranger together has drained her energy and joy. She’s a pro at caring for others, but she needs someone to look out for her, too. However, when her soon-to-be ex-husband, Mitch, asks if she’ll spend the holidays with him—just as friends—so he won’t be alone, she can’t say no because, other than his platoon, she’s the only family he has.

Staff Sergeant Mitchell Hamilton wants only one Christmas gift—his wife. Frequent deployments and training exercises sent him away from home, and he had no idea how taken for granted Lizzy felt until she asked him for a divorce two months ago. Now his mission is to show his wife he’ll do anything to save their marriage. He only hopes his plan to win her back with a holiday vacation to Indigo Bay, a coastal resort town, works. He can’t—won’t—lose Lizzy forever.

Sweet Holiday Wishes is available at the following eBook retailers:

Indigo Bay Sweet Holiday Reads

These are the other three short stories in the series:

Sweet Holiday Surprise by Jean Oram

Rule Number One: Never date the boss.

Given Alexa’s crash and burn history with office romances, it should be an easy rule to follow. Then again, her rules have never gone up against Cash Campbell.

Her charming CEO boss has a way of looking at her that makes her feel as though she’s the center of his universe, and their constant flirting increases the heat whenever their eyes meet. His attention makes for an addictive, yet tricky situation.

But Cash likes to keep things light and simple. He doesn’t make promises he can’t keep, and maintains enough space to move fast in the boardroom—as well as in his love life. However, there’s something captivating about his assistant’s direct honesty that has monopolized his attention for almost a year. The problem is, he knows she’ll never date the boss…and he really needs this job. Even if he could date her, she likes things orderly and his life and problems are anything but.

When the two attend a wedding in the dreamy ocean town of Indigo Bay, they begin to wonder why they ever bothered following the rules. Because sometimes breaking the rules is the best way to discover the love of your life.

Sweet Holiday Memories by Kay Correll

Sometimes a surprise from the past changes the future forever…

Meredith Snowden — who by some strange twist of fate has the nickname Merry — avoids everything to do with the holidays. Everything.


This year she’s in charge of the holiday bake sale. Not the best way to avoid Christmas.

Then Austin Sullivan returns to town and literally runs into Merry sprawled on the sidewalk among boxes of smashed cookies. Austin is all about Christmas and offers help with the baking and the sale. Merry’s carefully hidden memories of Christmas past begin to resurface.

Will Austin’s love of the holidays and a single lost ornament bring the magic of Christmas back into Merry’s life?
