Cover Reveal & Pre-Order: Once Upon a Summer Box Set

Today is an exciting day! I’m so excited to introduce you to my next project. Once Upon a Summer is a box set including contemporary retellings of timeless tales with five novellas from myself, Andrea Boyd, Mikal Dawn, Toni Shiloh, and Jaycee Weaver! Before I share about each story, here’s the cover!

Isn’t it just the most summery, calm, romantic cover? Designing this was fun! I’ll share more about that process in a later post.

Releasing on May 25, this fun collection takes some of your favorite (and one or two obscure) fairy tales and puts a modern spin on them in enchanting love stories.


Embrace the enchantment of summer with these contemporary twists on timeless tales.

A New Beginning by Andrea Boyd — Who is she? Acacia Martin raised by an impostor mom serving a prison sentence for her sins, or Jasmine Callahan abducted at birth from a family she’s yet to meet? Luckily, she has Drake to help her untangle the mess that is her life. Will he ensnare her he art in the process?

Resorting to Love by Mikal Dawn — Running from a forced marriage, Aleia McDermott takes a job working at Totoka Resort and Spa in Fiji. When Activities Director Jake Boring plans three masquerade balls, Aleia only intends to forget her troubles and enjoy the summer. Just because you’re wearing a mask doesn’t mean you can hide…from your father or from love.

An Ever After Summer by Toni Shiloh — The employees of In a Bind are terrified of Jean-Luc Thibodeaux, so Bellamy Larson hops on a plane to France to deal with the beastly client. Yet once she arrives, she’s convinced he merely needs a friend. Then her heart begins to want ever after, not just one summer.

Gwen and the Three Dates by Teresa Tysinger — Life isn’t a romantic movie, but Gwen Lochs is determined to find her leading man. When she joins a cheesy dating site, Gwen agrees to just three dates. Can Ben Smith watch his best friend and soulmate find someone else? A romantic comedy about searching for that just-right love.

Unkissable by Jaycee Weaver— Reality diva Charlotte Lavigne’s on-camera meltdown reminds former teen-TV prince Jaime Reyes exactly why he left Hollywood ten years ago. A chance encounter leads to a bargain that transforms them both. When it’s time to face her past, will their rediscovered love be strong enough to build a future together?
