Welcome to Nicola Cameron Writes! I’m your hostess Nic — make yourself at home and enjoy a wide variety of romance stories (primarily SF, fantasy, and paranormal, but I do write the occasional contemporary and historical) with chewy plot-filled centers, and all the bon mots you can handle. Oh, and if you see one or, er, five cats, just ignore them — they like to think they run the place.
In addition to my Blog, I also host a Bookshelf of my published work, a short About page (all true, I swear), a Free Reads page with some of my flash and short fiction for your reading enjoyment, a WIP page where I keep y’all updated on my current projects, a Newsletter page where you can sign up for Nicola’s Newsy News (low traffic, I promise!), and just for giggles a Merchandise page because everyone deserves an “Olympic Cove – Get Wet!” t-shirt.
Thanks for stopping by!
Current WIP: To My Muse
Yes, my first book of 2018 is a contemporary romcom (or as my friend Jackie put it, “Loosely based on a kind of true story”). Yes, I know I’ve never written one of those before. But if you like the comedy I’ve put into the Two Thrones books, you’re gonna love this one.
Tech writer by day and romance writer by night, Lily Navar never intended to send her celebrity crush a copy of the sexy romance novel he inspired. But too much tequila and an enabling best friend manage to land a copy of Feast of Lovers in the hands of gorgeous British actor Tom Morrison. When he tells a horrified Lily that he’s taking the book with him on location, she’s determined to get it back before he can read it.
With the help of a strategic lie and a charismatic Oscar-winning knight, Lily’s screwball plan winds up catapulting her into the middle of her very own Cinderella story, Hollywood style. But will her dream project (and a potential relationship with Tom) get derailed by a vengeful actress with an axe to grind?
Red Robin and the Huntsman now available
Yes, it’s finally here! My long-promised holiday novella set in Ypres, Red Robin and the Huntsman, is now available exclusively on Amazon in Kindle Unlimited! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll enjoy the Monty Python in-jokes!
It’s Frostfair time in Ypres, but not everyone is looking forward to the winter holiday. Army captain Duncan Bardahlson has been dispatched to the tiny province of Wellen mere days before Frostfair to track down a legendary bandit known as the Redbird. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Duncan also has to deal with Roberta “Robin” Busse, the widowed countess of Wellen and his long-lost love.
When Duncan learns that Robin and her young son Charlie are in desperate straits, the hunt for the Redbird takes an unexpected turn. An overbearing tax collector, an impish priest, a very large pig, and a pair of bickering younger brothers all promise to make this holiday season a nightmare for Duncan — unless he can rekindle his romance with Robin.
And find the Redbird, of course. But Duncan isn’t called the Huntsman for nothing…
Lady of Thorns now available
Suffering from Game of Thrones withdrawal? Wondering what the heck is going on in Ypres and Hellas? Or are you just in the mood for a new fantasy romance? Fret not, because the third book in my Two Thrones series is now out! Lady of Thorns is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online retailers.
Love was never supposed to be part of the deal…
Lady Amelie de Clerq’s prickly demeanor and earth mage abilities have earned her the nickname “Lady of Thorns,” keeping potential suitors at bay and making her the butt of the nobility’s jokes. Determined to attract a husband who will love her for herself rather than her fortune, she decides to embark on a journey of sensual self-discovery.
Alain LaPorte, wily lawyer and toast of the capital’s social set, has been summoned to Lierdhe to oversee business negotiations with a neighboring earl. When Amelie asks Alain to tutor her in the bedroom arts, he agrees to introduce the virgin mage to pleasure. But lessons in lovemaking soon turn into a matter of the heart, forcing both Amelie and Alain to confront their fears about intimacy, loyalty, and love.
