Belling the Kat and Other Stories

Office worker Kat didn’t think the statuesque Belle was her type—until she saw her friend rocking a slinky satin bridesmaid’s dress. Now Kat can’t get the gorgeous image out of her head, but dare she risk losing Belle’s friendship by trying for something more?

To add to her woes, ever since a close encounter of the feline kind, Kat’s had an embarrassing little problem that keeps recurring. Surely someone as beautiful as Belle won’t fall for a woman who occasionally sprouts whiskers—and a tail!

This mini-collection also includes three more super-quick reads featuring women loving women: contemporary romance Little Bit of Ivory; Japanese fairy tale Ice Maiden; and the haunting Dance With Me.

These super-quick reads have been previously published but are now appearing together for the first time.

Due out 16th November from JMS Books

Just Like Santa

Jason loves working at the Bright Eyes nursery, but he’s not so keen on what happens at the kids’ Christmas party. As if having to don an ancient, tacky Santa costume isn’t bad enough, he’s mortified when he suffers a costume malfunction. Especially as it happens right in front of the hot—and impeccably dressed—single dad, Alec, he’s fancied for ages.

But when Alec’s daughter Poppy invites Jason round for tea, he finds Alec was only too pleased to get a glimpse of Jason’s naff underwear. In fact, he’d like to see a whole lot more of it. A Christmas miracle? Maybe—but there’s one more embarrassment in store for Jason next morning.

This super-quick read first appeared in the I Saw Daddy Kissing Santa Claus anthology

See two of Jane Austen’s minor characters find love together, and others find hope amid the ruins, as JL Merrow explores the feminine side of life—and love.
