I’m very excited to announce that I have a new project in the works!

Along with five other authors, I’m helping to create a series of romance novellas where each story “ripples” into the next. Sort of a pay-it-forward type concept.

My Story:

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 5.32.43 PMAccording to her mother, Olivia Pembroke was born to be a star. But how is she supposed to be famous, when she can’t even get a decent acting gig? Her lucky break comes when she lands an audition for a wildly popular home improvement show. It’s too bad Olivia has no design training. She’s never even held a power tool, but she refuses to let that stop her!  She’s confident that her destiny is finally within reach. When her affections are torn between her heartthrob co-host and the irritating, yet somehow endearing lead contractor, does she continue to reach for the stars? Or does she design a new happily ever after? One that leads not to the fading lights of fame and fortune, but to a love that will burn forever.

Here are the lovely covers. Click on the Goodreads button to view synopsis and author bios for the rest of the books in the series =D

It’s never too early to start compiling your seasonal reading list. And really, No Holly for Christmas is not just a Christmas book. The story incorporates the entire holiday season from Halloween to Thanksgiving and then on to December 24th.


Love at first sight quickly turns frigid for ADA, Brian McAlister, and social worker, Holly Winter, when Holly gets pulled into a manhunt for an accused murderer who now has his sights set on her. His case unraveling, Brian finds himself tasked with keeping Holly and her two daughters safe while bringing an assassin and the powerful man who hired him to justice.

A heart-warming story of suspense, healing, giving and receiving, No Holly for Christmas is the perfect addition to everyone’s holiday reading list.

Review from the blogger at The Book Bag:

No Holly for Christmas is not your typical Christmas story. It is a great suspense romance. Both of the main characters start out as people I didn’t like very much and then as I got to know them, I came to understand why they were the way they were.

Then the suspense part of the story took over and kept me up way too late reading, to make sure everything would be okay. Holly and Brian have to rely on each other to make sure they both stay alive. And by being dependent on each other, they learn to open up to each other and see that they really are meant to be together.

I had previously read another of Ford’s books, Count Down to Love, and was so excited to read this one. I was not disappointed! A little Christmas, a little romance and a little suspense, all rolled into one – it doesn’t get any better than that! Thanks Julie, for making my Christmas reading a lot more fun this year!
