New release – The Kiss Dare

The Kiss Dare, a short story by Jessica Kate and endorsed by Rachel Hauck

All Bea MacLaren wants is to survive this work Christmas party and beat Harry Miller to the Corporate Communications Manager promotion – her mother and siblings are counting on her.

But when Harry attempts to distract her with an outrageous dare, is it just a last-ditch effort to discredit her before the promotion? Or something sweeter?

 

Friends, I am so excited to announce the launch of The Kiss Dare! This sassy short is available FREE and EXCLUSIVE to newsletter subscribers, and includes Chapter 1 of my upcoming romantic comedy Love and Other Mistakes.

Book 2 title reveal!

Romantic comedy 'A Girl's Guide to the Outback' by Australian inspirational author Jessica Kate

Here’s a peek at the still-unofficial blurb:

Kimberly Foster needs help from the last man in the world who would give it.

 She and Samuel Payton fought so much during their three-year stint as colleagues that they now reside in different halves of the globe. She’s still the business director of the Virginia-based youth ministry that Sam founded, while he’s back at his family’s farm in rural Australia.

 But Kimberly can’t find a suitable replacement for Sam, and the ministry is in trouble. She needs him back. What she doesn’t know is that the Payton farm’s finances are scarier than statistics on Australian spider bites.

 She and Sam strike a deal: if she can use her business savvy to save the farm, he’ll return to Virginia and recruit and train his replacement.

 Soon Kimberly’s on the edge of the Outback, working more closely with Sam than ever before. Can she protect his family’s legacy, the ministry, and her heart?


Can’t wait to share this book with everyone! It comes out only six months after Love and Other Mistakes, in January 2020.

It’s been so much fun getting to mix it up with an American heroine and Aussie hero!

Love and Other Mistakes is available for pre-order

I’m so excited to announce that Love and Other Mistakes is now available for pre-order!!!

Seeing my book and my name on the book retailers websites is both surreal and a dream come true.

So what is pre-ordering? Pre-ordering means the book will be sent to your e-reader or mailing address on the release date, July 30 2019.

It also gives my publisher and bookstores an indication on how many people are excited about this book.
