Merry Inkmas is a short, feel good holiday romance story following Bailey and Cash. Bailey is a strong willed, adorably nerdy and plus sized goddess working in a coffee shop whilst studying psychology. Determined to learn from her mother’s mistakes, Bailey insists she won’t sacrifice self-respect for any relationship. When Cash enters her life, a bad boy with a heart of gold, she finds herself wondering if this beast might be her prince Charming.

Cash Evans is tattoo artist with a troubled childhood, and a very flirty customer of Bailey’s. He’s come a long way and amassed wealth from his skills as an artist, but this can’t fix the hole in his heart. Cash knows that the sweet barista who haunts his dreams is off-limits… But life doesn’t always go to plan.

Some tropes, no matter how annoying, can be absolved if they’re in the hands of a capable author… right?

That might depend on how forgiving the reader is though… you can expect me to be very forgiving.

It doesn’t help that Stella has Asperger’s and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice–with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan.

MY CURRENT FAVOURITE ROMANCE NOVELS

More often than not, romance books get a pretty bad rep for reasons such as their cheesy titles, soft porn covers and myriad of clichéd tropes.

I really enjoy books with romance as a strong subplot. (Six of Crows, anyone?) I typically don’t gravitate towards Romance as a genre. However February is a great time to appreciate the few romance books I’ve read and loved.

Don’t forget to let me know in the comment section if you’ve read any of these books or whether you can recommend some steamy romance books to me! 😜
