Runway Romance is rolling onto the tarmac!

Posted by Merri Hiatt on January 24, 2013 at 4:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Runway Romance, Book one of the Love in the Air Trilogy is rolling onto the tarmac! Available excusively at Amazon in e-book format for the next ninety days (then available through all sales channels).

Join Jenny, Kate and Patricia, three flight attendants who share a home, as well as the skies, as they search for Mr. Right, instead of Mr. Right Now.

Runway Romance finds Jenny Collins experiencing a near hit-and-run with a baggage truck. While she escaped harm, her heart took a hit when her eyes met Richard Novatney's. As they learn more about each other, memories and actions from the past find themselves encroaching on their future together.

I hope you'll check out Runway Romance and enjoy the entire trilogy.

I am currently working on Sequel two of the Embracing Love Trilogy! I haven't forgotten about Courtney, Meg and Purity! They are currently at Moon Spirit Lodge on their way to Double Y Ranch. Even Diego's coming along!


Love in the Air Trilogy

Join Jenny, Patricia and Kate, three flight attendants searching to find

Love in the Air

in the current trilogy I'm writing. You can read snippets from each of the books as I write them by following Merri Hiatt on Twitter or Facebook.

 I haven't written the complete blurbs for the books, but here are a few teasers. :D

Jenny falls for a man who almost runs her down on the tarmac as he delivers luggage to an airplane holding cargo. Kisses on the runway ensue as their romance blossoms.

Patricia meets a passenger on a flight to the Lone Star state. They find a long distance romance difficult to manage.

Kate has a thing for pilots -- all of them. She hops into bed with each one she works with, until the day she finds one man who satisfies all her needs.

Makes me want to head to the airport and take a trip on the wings of love!


Christmas in September!

Santa Hates Seattle is free at Amazon today, September 5, 2012!!! Snag a copy right away! Here's the link: Santa Hates Seattle at Amazon

Santa Hates Seattle has arrived exclusively at Amazon in e-book format. Let's celebrate Christmas in September!

It's only a few months early!

Why does Santa hate Seattle? Read on...

"Santa hates Seattle," a television news reporter declares after airing an interview with an inebriated gentleman who stumbled from Polanzky's Pub, slipped on an icy patch of snow and told reporters Santa Claus hit him with his sleigh. Eight-year-old Samantha Kinsey can't believe her ears. Her mother reassures her that Santa could never hate Seattle, but Sam is not convinced. She decides to send Santa an e-mail and make him a gift to show him how much she loves him. When Christmas rolls around the following year, Sam asks for an intangible gift. A wish even Santa will have difficulty granting.



This short story is approximately 15,000 words.

Now I'm in the Christmas mood. Is it too early to put up Christmas tree lights? Maybe just a bit. Then again, aren't we supposed to keep the Christmas Spirit in our heart all year long? I wonder where those lights are...

Blessings of the Season of Love!

Spring is here!

Posted by Merri Hiatt on July 26, 2012 at 11:50 PM Comments comments (0)

Yes, the Seasons of Love Series is complete now that Spring Love is available in e-book format exclusively at Amazon. The paperback version will be available in about a week.

What's the book about?

Spring McDonald is an observer. While she’s active in behind-the-scenes church activities, she finds it easier to blend into the wallpaper than draw attention to herself. Having Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of nineteen altered her dreams. An unexpected encounter brings hope that maybe one of her dreams can come true, finding someone who looks past her illness to discover the woman that lies within.

I'm already missing Winter, Summer, Autumn and Spring. It's nice to know I can visit them now and again in e-book and paperback format.

No matter what season it is, there's a romance novel just waiting for you to read it.

Posted by Merri Hiatt on May 31, 2012 at 11:30 PM Comments comments (0)

Winter Love is ready and waiting for you in e-book format exclusively at Amazon! Tomorrow, June 1, 2012, it will be available FREE! Ya'll know how much I love free stuff. :D

This is the third book in the Seasons of Love Series. I began working on the final book, Spring Love, today.

Here's a description of the book and also a link to the book page at Amazon.

Winter Montgomery has been a tomboy as long as she can remember. Working as a mechanic at Charlie's Garage hasn't helped her shed the title. Form the moment Rory Walters pulls his custom convertible into the bay, she dislikes the man. He is over-confident, filthy rich and has a swagger that sets her teeth on edge. If he didn't have the sexiest blue eyes, she'd almost be able to forget him. Almost.

Happy reading!

Too busy for grass to grow under my feet!

I began writing a short story a few months ago, then put it aside to finish the novel I was working on at the time. The story has been percolating in the back of my mind ever since. It came to full brew a few days ago when I pulled an all-nighter because I could not stop writing (even though I had an early appointment the next day and needed to get some sleep!).

What emerged was a wonderful fairy tale of sorts with references to Jack and the Beanstalk (first seen in print by Benjamin Tabart in 1807).

The story opens with Sarah Carpenter having three days to pay her rent. She has less than four dollars in her checking account. To take her mind off her troubles, she heads to the local farmer’s market a mile from her apartment. A mysterious woman offers her a lavender pouch filled with contents unknown. Instructions to come back in one week and either return the pouch with the items inside or pay five dollars follow. Sarah takes the pouch. In doing so, she opens herself to the promise of hope and the gift of believing in magic.

This short story is approximately 7,000 words and is available now in e-book format exclusively at Amazon. Here's a link: Sarah and the Magic Beans at Amazon. It will be available soon in paperback, as well.
