Activate by Adele Jones (Rhiza Press, 1 November 2016)

Josh Hammond’s not who he says he is. To stay alive, he must guard his
identity, existing isolated from his former life and those he loves. The
one enemy he can’t outrun is his failing health, and time is short.
Desperate for a solution, Josh leaves the protection of his safe house
unapproved. Instead of a cure, he’s left powerless against a cunning
adversary. Determined to reclaim his life, he grasps an opportunity for
escape, but things go drastically wrong. Can he find a way to expose the
lies of a criminal mastermind, or will he be silenced? Forever.


Operation Mistletoe Magic by Nicki Edwards (Momentum, 24 October 2016)

Christmas is looking grim for Melissa Allen. She has no one to celebrate with, as her boyfriend of five years left her for her best friend and, after losing her home in a fire, she has nowhere to live. Left without a choice, she accepts the offer to the stay with family friends Rob and Linda Nicholls.

Chris Nicholls is excited about bringing his five-year-old daughter, Jasmine, home to Lakefield, Ontario for her first white Christmas. The trip is a surprise for his parents, though no one is more surprised than Chris when he finds his childhood best friend in his parent's spare room. Surprise soon turns to delight as Chris has always had feelings for Melissa, feelings that are only getting stronger the longer they are together.

But Melissa has had her fill of heartbreak, and isn't willing to fall for a man who is only going to leave. And Jasmine? She doesn't want to share her daddy with anyone. If Chris has any hope of convincing Melissa and Jasmine that they have a future together as a family, he'll need all the mistletoe magic he can get.


Seaside Christmas by Narelle Atkins (independent, 27 October 2016)

Chelsea Somers is the girl he never called back.

Six years later, former bad boy Gus Donovan is intrigued by Chelsea, but his past mistakes continue to haunt him. Gus is determined to prove he’s a changed man—prove it to his friends, his family, his father. And prove it to Chelsea.

Chelsea has embraced the faith she once mocked, and she’s focused on furthering her career in health promotion and staying away from politics. She’s drawn to Gus, although his busy role as an advisor for an Australian senator doesn’t impress her. When she’s forced to confront her fears and deal with a past family tragedy, can Gus convince her to trust him and take a chance on him?

A heartwarming Christmas romance novella set in Sydney, Australia. Seaside Christmas is a standalone novella and Book 3.5 in the Sydney Sweethearts series.

All is Bright by Andrea Grigg (independent, 24 October 2016)

Amy Kirkwood is resigned to accept her destiny as a single woman. No one can measure up to Josh McMillan, her secret crush of fourteen years, and the man who was married to her late sister. But when Josh spends the weekend with Amy and her family on the anniversary of Tess’s death, everything changes.

A widower for five years, Josh McMillan is ready to love again, but he never expected to fall so fast for his sister-in-law, Amy Kirkwood. Then Josh receives a letter that rocks his world, and he knows he must show the letter to Amy, even though it may shatter their growing relationship.

Is their love strong enough to weather the storm unleashed from the secrets in their past?

A contemporary Christian romance novella, a spin-off story from ‘A Simple Mistake’.

Falling for Maddie Grace by Meredith Resce (independent, 28 October 2016)

Maddie Grace has followed her passion, and against all odds has become the first female professional football umpire in Australia.

When an on-field accident sees her caught up in play, and on the receiving end of a blow to the head that knocks her out, Maddie’s career is in jeopardy—not because of the accident, but because of the young man who knocked her out.

Zac Beecham is one of Australia’s most loved professional sports stars. He’s used to the intrusive paparazzi who seem determined to ferret out some dark and dirty secret where there is none. Having been open about his faith and Christian morals, he knows he is a target. So when he ends up on top of Maddie Grace, dazed and in a stupor from concussion, the media pounce on the visual images and decide to make a mountain out of a mole hill. Ridiculous headlines: Zac’s secret love affair with the ref – investigation into corrupt umpiring. 

Dodging headlines is one thing, but dodging Maddie Grace is another.

Falling for Maddie Grace is currently available in 'An Aussie Summer Christmas' boxed set.
