A New Disguise


I’m in disguise.

Camo Cat

It’s not a very good disguise, I know.

But I wanted you all to know about my new pen name M.J. O’Russell.

M.J. is the name I’ll be using for all of my sweet romance projects, including Nuttycracker Sweet. When I was choosing a new pen name, I wasn’t concerned about making sure no one could tell it was the same person writing my sweet romances as the person who pens my Young Adult projects. I want people to know they’re all by me!

I just don’t want people to think they’ll be getting a dystopian like Girl of Glass and end up with a romantic comedy about ballet dancers. Some readers might enjoy both, but most would have a strong preference of one over the other.

So, if you see M.J. O’Russell, it’s me writing humorous romance. And if you like romantic comedy, be sure to check out Nuttycracker Sweet, available in Kindle Unlimited.

Oh! And if you hurry, it’s free to download through the end of the day tomorrow (November 21st).

Nuttycracker Sweet by M.J. O'Russell

Nuttycracker Sweet

A snowy road trip. A cozy cabin. An impossible romance.

All Elle wanted was to dance the role of the Sugar Plum Fairy and get a paycheck big enough to cover her Manhattan rent.

If only the gig had been so simple.

When a snowstorm traps her in a remote cabin, Elle is stuck with a man she vowed to hate. Spending some time curled up by the fire with a charming, handsome man could have been perfect. Too bad he’s her womanizing dance partner Zach.

As the snow swirls around them, sparks begin to fly. But even a winter wonderland can’t erase a painful past.

With time before their performance running out, the pair will have to learn to dance together or risk a ballet disaster.

Will Elle and Zach fall in love, or will their duet end in heartbreak?

If you crave love, dream of drama, and are ready to laugh out loud, Nuttycracker Sweet is the romance for you. Download your copy now!
