Ready to go on tour with Tristan and his bandmates? 

BLURB
 
From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward comes a new, STANDALONE novel…
  

No one but me knew why I was actually in the California desert that day.

Nestled deep within the desolate, rocky area was a recording studio.

When a door suddenly opened, a man mistook me for someone he was supposed to be interviewing for a job.

The next thing I knew, I was whisked inside.

The position? An assistant on the upcoming tour for one of America’s most famous rock bands.

Pretty exciting opportunity for a twenty-two-year-old, just out of college.

Not surprisingly, I bombed the interview.

When I ended up mistakenly walking into the men’s room on my way out, I struck up a conversation with a stranger—not realizing it was the lead singer, Tristan Daltrey.

He seemed to like the fact that I had no idea who he was, that I saw him as a normal person.

That night, I got a call offering me the job.

So began my complicated story with Tristan.

Millions of women loved him.

Yet for some reason, after the shows, he only wanted to hang out with me.

Late-night talks. Casual dinners in his hotel room.

I wasn’t supposed to be fraternizing with the band’s frontman.

Despite our fifteen-year age difference, Tristan and I had a connection.

But I had a secret.

One that would eventually lead to my leaving the tour.

And one that would lead Tristan and the band straight to the small town where I came from.

The Pianist Plays It Slow is 99 cents

The Pianist Plays It Slow (West Coast Soulmates #1)



When a beautiful woman mistakes me for my n’er-do-well identical twin brother, the awkward encounter—a slap to the face—gradually turns into a possibility for something real.

Something lasting.

Something like love, and it scares the hell out of me.

Being the guy that falls too easily has burned me in the past, so with Hannah I’m determined to take things slow and not screw it up.

If only my twin wasn’t hell-bent on tearing down everything I try to build.

Previously titled The Pianist. This story is intended for readers 18 and over due to adult language, sexual content, and adult situations.


Takes place after COMPLETED and THE BASSIST GETS SNOWED IN, but can be read as a stand-alone.

The Pianist Plays It Slow:
*Kinda-nerdy hero
*He falls first
*Mistaken identity
*Evil twin
*Found family
*Love of 80s music
*New Adult vibes
*Rockstar
*HEA

My contribution is called Recipe for a Revealing Christmas!

Two lonely friends. One holiday movie. A little whiskey and wine.

It’s the recipe for truths and revelations that will change our lives forever.

This holiday is building to be as fun as always—until the last bit of family I have makes it clear I’m not wanted. My first thought is to seek comfort from my next-door neighbor and best friend, but never expect to end the night in his bed with secret feelings laid bare.

Have I unwrapped the best Christmas present a woman could ask for?

This story is intended for readers 18 and over due to adult language, sexual content, and adult situations.

I will be offering ARCs of my story closer to October. Please add it to your TBR today: Goodreads.

Make You Feel My Love is 1 today! Catch up with The Bittersweet Duet!

Make You Feel My Love turns one today! 

Did you read When We Were Young last month?

In case you missed that post, we have brand-new covers for this duet to celebrate its birthday.


Make You Feel My Love
 - Bittersweet Duet #2 - Smashwords | Apple | Barnes and Noble | Amazon | Google Play | Kobo | Eden Books |

Sleeping with Sam the second time might’ve been the stupidest thing I’ve done in thirty-eight years. Everyone knows long-distance relationships don’t work. I go home after Christmas thinking I did the right thing.

Then he shows up at my door with my favorite pizza and wine and says he loves me!

Sam offers me things no other man ever has, but it feels like I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop. Long-distance terrifies me, especially when he wants me there with him now and I know his patience won’t last forever.

Then he pushes for more at the same time my world is turned upside-down and it’s too much. If I’m already losing everything, why not him, too?

Our timing has always sucked.

But fate eventually puts me back in California again.

And this time, I know I love him back.

This story is intended for readers 18 and over due to adult language, sexual content, and adult situations.


When We Were Young - Bittersweet Duet #1 - Buy direct from me | Smashwords | Apple | Barnes and Noble | Eden Books | Google Play | Amazon | Kobo |

Kate was my best friend and secret dream girl and I let her go.

Twice.

Yeah, I know, not my finest moments, but they seemed right at the time.

Now, she’s back in town for our twentieth high school reunion and I want to know everything—especially did she miss me? A newly-single dad of little ones, my focus shouldn’t be romance, but Kate was always my weakness.

She makes me feel alive for the first time in months, I’ve missed our closeness from the past, and Mom loves her like a daughter. My kids even like her instantly. I want her no matter how much it complicates our lives.

Kate Carson will finally be mine.

This story is intended for readers 18 and over due to adult language, sexual content, and adult situations.

RELEASE BLITZ - The Surrogate by Penelope Ward #agegap #foundfamily #enemiestolovers #contemporaryromance #romancereaders #releaseblitz @PenelopeAuthor @GiveMeBooksPR


RELEASE BLITZ
Title: The Surrogate
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Tropes: Age Gap/Widower/Found Family
Forbidden/Enemies to Friends to Lovers
Release Date: February 26, 2024
  

BLURB
 
From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward comes a new, STANDALONE novel…
 
ABBY:
I’m falling for the father of the baby I’m carrying.

The problem is: it’s not my baby.

And the broody widower is not looking for a long-term partner.

As a surrogate, the deal was that I’d only be in England long enough to give birth.

At first, the man seemed as pretentious as his name: Sigmund Benedictus.

He and I butted heads.

Sig challenged my intentions, accused me of just wanting to do this for the money.

Gradually, he learned to trust me.

He even became protective.

Over time, our heated animosity turned into fiery chemistry.

I was falling in love with him.

But my time here had a limit.

I needed to protect my heart from the devastatingly gorgeous older man who’d end up breaking it.

SIG:
When my in-laws told me they wanted to use my dead wife’s eggs to conceive a grandchild, I wasn’t immediately on board.

They swore that on her deathbed Britney told them it was what she wanted—but only if I fathered the baby. Her parents insisted they would be the ones to raise it.

Against my better judgment, I agreed.

I vowed to keep my heart out of it, though.

I’d continue to pretend it wasn’t happening and live the empty, single life I’d become accustomed to the past five years since Britney died.

And despite the fact that a certain younger American named Abby Knickerbocker had awakened things inside me that I thought were long dead…

I most certainly wouldn’t fall in love with the surrogate.
