Allison Elliot was too short to be a ballerina—according to the studio that turned her away. Determined to pursue her childhood dream of learning ballet, she signs up for lessons at a different studio and quickly catches the attention of her instructor.

Josh Owen is more than happy to be her teacher, and maybe more if she’d let him, but she doesn’t seem to notice his advances. Is she oblivious to the obvious chemistry between them, or is something more going on? When Allison threatens to drop his class, Josh urges her to reconsider. Will she stay, or will she give up on two dreams—ballet and love?

**The Studio Collection is a series of short, hot, romantic standalones**

Em Denning - At the Barre -

When Jake Munroe moves into his new apartment he has no idea the woman of his dreams is literally right next door. She’s beautiful, sexy, and frustratingly elusive. Finding the right time to make his move seems like it will never come, until she walks through the doors of his nightclub.

Sally isn’t looking for a new relationship but when Jake appears in her life, she grabs the opportunity to partake in some sexual healing. Her ex-husband left her convinced she could never sexually excite or satisfy a man, but those rule don’t seem to apply to Jake. He wants her—at least for now.

Jake's desire for Sally is unequalled to anything he’s experienced before. He wants her in his life and is determined to have her, no matter what it takes. When he thinks he's finally made Sally his own, he discovers a horrible truth. Sally has kept their relationship hidden from everyone she knows and Jake refuses to be anyone’s secret plaything.

Darcy Delany - New Release - Sweet Revenge

Hi guys. You know Valentine's Day is coming up. Not everyone likes to celebrate the day of luurve. Some people flat out loathe it. A friend of mine has a new release today and she's taken Valentine's Day and added a vengeful twist! I love this concept. Check it out.

Revenge is a dish best served cold according to Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, but Darcy Delany turns up the heat in Sweet Revenge.

Murderous grandmothers, harried husbands and bullied employees take matters into their own hands in this entertaining collection of short stories from a sassy storyteller.

Does Valentine’s day give you a sinking feeling? 
Darcy Delany hears you!
Sweet Revenge is an anti-Valentine’s Day offering from Darcy Delany. She dropped by today to tell us a little more about this book.

Valentine’s Day is not a day everyone enjoys, so I wanted to create a collection of stories for those feeling cranky with cupid on February 14!

Ever since reading the The Count of Monte Christo I’ve become intrigued by stories of revenge, particularly in relation to love. For those who haven’t read that book, it’s the story of one man’s intricate retribution on those who had him falsely imprisoned, resulting in his fiancé marrying another. What struck me about the story was how easily the passion of love can be turned in other directions, and how devastatingly effective that redirected energy can be. 

My characters in Sweet Revenge are every day people who have been pushed to their limits, are sick of waiting for karma to start working, and take action in entertaining ways. We’ve all had those moments, whether we want to admit it publicly is another matter! They’re stories to make people smile when they’re having a bad day - letting them take revenge vicariously, without the stress of plotting and planning!

Darcy Delany writes fiction with sassy heroines and heroes you love to love!
She makes a mean sangria and loves karaoke.

Warbling Me - 2016 Wrap Up

Hello again lovely readers. Here we are, finally at the end of the God-awful year 2016. If this year was an animal, it would fart vomit and vomit poo. It would snarl and bite and claw until its victim was a bloody mess of torn parts on the ground. Okay, I’m being overly dramatic, but hallelujah it’s nearly over.
I’m a private person, and I really don’t want to bore you with my rubbish, but I’ll let you in on a private joke. You might’ve been wondering why the heck I’d call my romance blog The Flare Up. Am I referring to what might happen if you don’t practise safe sex, or what? My tag line is Stories with romantic flare, so the name fits with that. But I also suffer from several autoimmune diseases. When I’m under a heap of stress I get a flare up that knocks me down for weeks, if not months. So, The Flare Up was me making a lame joke of myself. You’ve got to laugh, right?
I know things could have been worse, and have been worse for some of my friends, but the events of this year had just about snuffed out my muse for good. The stories are still there in the background waiting for me to get my shit together, and I’m so thankful that they have stuck by me. It’s driven me nuts not being able to publish to my original schedule, but I’ve learned that sometimes I just need to give myself a break.
Now that that’s out of my system I’ll share my hopes and dreams for 2017 with you.

I hope that you all have a safe and happy holiday season.


I hope I can handle a slice of cheesecake and pavlova on Christmas Day.


I hope my kids continue to grow into the beautiful souls that they are.

I hope DT can make America great again.


I hope I get to meet at least some of you at signing events next year.


I hope that you’ll all love my stories as much as I do.

I hope Santa finds the cookies.

I hope that you experience the love that you deserve.


I hope your hopes and dreams come true (only the good dreams).


I hope my friends and family can understand and forgive me for my absence this year.


I hope the world can find some peace.


I hope my editor is ready for next year, it’s going to be a big one.

Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, and jolly whatever it is you celebrate. See you next year, guys!
I'll be back in January with a character interview, starring Chelsea from Finding Home.

Remembering Home has a new cover!

Hi there! I have some exciting news. Remembering Home has a new cover! It's so pretty I want to roll in the hay with it. Not literally, don't screw your face up at me.

You're probably aware that I'm writing the second book in the Coming Home series, Finding Home. It's due out early next year. I can't give you an exact date yet. You'll know as soon as I do. So, now that Remembering Home is the kick off to a series it needed a new cover to tie in with its counterparts. 
The new cover is a better representation of the feel of the series. Sweet love and summer in the south. The perfect read to take on holiday, or escape the chill of winter.

Here it is!
