Cupid's Coffeeshop

It’s release day for Pumpkin Spice


Wow! I cannot believe that the tenth Cupid’s Coffeeshop book (and my 13th book!) releases today. I really loved writing Natalie and Jameson’s story. Are you ready for some football?


Here’s the book trailer:


Natalie Lawson just wants a chance to coach the high school football team. I imagine her looking like Holland Roden

nat2 natalie1

She’s instantly attracted to her new boss, high school principal Jameson Kincade, who I imagine looking like Jason Bateman (any Arrested Development fans? Loved him as Michael Bluth!)

jameson1 jameson2

We met Jameson’s dad, Ashford Falls Fire Chief, Chris Kincade, in Fireworks Frappe. He makes another appearance here (and may get his own happily ever after in a future Ashford Falls series–shhhh! It’s a secret for now!) I imagine him looking like a cross between Bruce Greenwood and Sam Elliott–Yum!)

chriskincade1 chriskincade2

Jameson’s son, Kieran Kincade, also makes an appearance in this book, as one of Natalie’s football team members. He’ll be showing up next month as the hero of Thanksgiving Dream too. I imagine him looking like Beau Mirchoff. (Any fans of Maddy from Awkward?)

As the Ashford Falls Panthers try anything to score on the field, will Natalie and Jameson discover they are perfectly matched? Find out in Pumpkin Spice, tenth in the Cupid’s Coffeeshop series.


Apple Cider will be free for a limited time to celebrate the release of the tenth book.

Meet Harper and Cooper from Apple Cider

Hi everyone! Happy fall! So far for us, autumn has been a whirlwind of a final beach vacation followed by back-to-school for Fox. We’re slowly adjusting to a new normal routine here at Chez Hunt.

On Thursday, Apple Cider, the ninth book in the Cupid’s Coffeeshop series, released. I really enjoyed writing Harper and Cooper’s story and hope you will too. Here’s the book trailer:


Long-time readers of the series have already met Harper Wells during the May story, Cafe au Lait, when her brother, Alex, fell for her best friend, Kennedy. Harper is a single mom to five year old, Layla, and doesn’t have much time for romance in her life. I imagine her looking something like Sandra Bullock.

harper-1 harper2

Widower Cooper Mason and his son, Noah, have lived next door to Harper for two years. While Cooper has always been friendly to Harper, he’s thinks he’s too old and boring for someone like her. I imagine him looking something like George Clooney.

When their friendship turns passionate, will Harper and Cooper discover happily ever after right next door? Find out in Apple Cider.

Meet Zooey and Charlie from Coconut Iced Coffee

Coconut Iced Coffee, the eighth book in the Cupid’s Coffeeshop series, is out today. Grab your copy here.



All my Cupid’s Coffeeshop readers know Zooey Lockhart. She’s one of the three co-owners of Cupid’s Coffeeshop, along with her brother, Patrick, and cousin, Joe. She’s celebrating her 21st birthday and is missing her annual beach trip. Joe and Patrick give her a trip to the fictional Caribbean island of San Maria. In my head, Zooey looks like a combination of Rashida Jones and Sarah Hyland.

Zooey1 Zooey2 Zooey3

While on San Maria, she meets Charlie Lyons. He grew up on the island but just graduated from law school. He’s come home to relax after taking the bar exam. In my head, he looks like Michael Ealy. I loved him on Almost Human. So bummed when they cancelled that show. Can you blame Zooey for falling for him?

Charlie1 Charlie2 Charlie3

When he and Zooey meet, they enjoy an instant connection. But can their summer fling turn into love? Find out in Coconut Iced Coffee. You might enjoy seeing the trailer too.

To celebrate the release of my eleventh book, Fireworks Frappe is FREE (until 8 August 2016). Grab some Duncan and Ava fun for you and all your friends.

Happy (Book) Birthday to Me!

Eight years ago today, I brought my son home from the hospital. Here’s one of my favorite shots of that day.

Seven years later (one year ago today), I hit the “publish” button on my first novel, Forever a Bridesmaid, and rushed out the door to take my son to swim class. Later that night, just before midnight, I got to see my listing come up. One of the biggest thrills of my life.

To celebrate my first anniversary, I’ve put three of my books on sale for 99 cents, just for today. So, fill up your e-reader and scoop up some gifts for all your friends. 

Courtney's birthday bash!-2

In this first year of publishing, I published a total of 10 books (3 full-length novels and 7 novellas). In addition to that, I’ve got one boxed set, three audiobooks, and, just this week, agreed to have Forever a Bridesmaid translated into Spanish.

Thanks to the support of my wonderful readers, I won a contract with my second novel, The Lost Art of Second Chances, and officially became a hybrid author. I am the luckiest author in the world.

In the next year, I’ve got five more Cupid’s Coffeeshop novellas, two novellas in two different anthology boxed sets, the final novel in my Bridesmaid’s trilogy, several more boxed sets, and audiobooks to come. It’s going to be a busy year. Stick around for the ride!


Cupid's Coffeeshop

Are you ready for some Fireworks Frappe?

Happy release day! Fireworks Frappe, the seventh book in the Cupid’s Coffeeshop series, is available today. I’m delighted to share Ava and Duncan’s story with you. Ava is Amy Lane’s twin sister. Longtime readers might remember Amy from the first book in the Cupid’s Coffeeshop series, Java Frost. Amy and Ben are tying the knot and Ava is home to do maid of honor duties.


When Ava was a teenager, she couldn’t wait to leave Ashford Falls for the bright lights of New York City. Now, she’s just lost her high powered career and come home to lick her wounds. Since she’s identical to her sister, I imagine Ava looking  just like Amy Schumer and Amy Poehler.

Amy Schumer
Amy Schumer

When she walks into Cupid’s Coffeeshop, she runs into her high school boyfriend, Duncan Knight. Duncan looks like Jensen Ackles, with hazel eyes. How handsome is he? I’ve never written a firefighter hero before but Duncan came complete with a whole crew of sexy characters to write about. So, now I’ve got a whole second series to set in Ashford Falls–just need time to write it! 🙂



Ten years ago, he stayed. Ava left. Though he’s risen to second in command at the Ashford Falls fire station, Duncan’s never gotten over Ava. Can they resurrect their love from the ashes of their dreams? Find out in Fireworks Frappe.


I also made my first ever book trailer for Fireworks Frappe. So fun! Check it out!

I’m super busy with the release and planning my (book) birthday celebration for the end of this month. I can’t believe it’s been a year already! Keep your eye out for a new pre-order for Pumpkin Spice, the tenth Cupid’s Coffeeshop book, and my first ever audiobook announcement.

Cupid's Coffeeshop

Meet Joe and Molly from Berries and Cream Chai

The sixth book in the Cupid’s Coffeeshop series, Berries and Cream Chai, is available today!



I didn’t have a chance to write a separate blog post introducing Joe and Molly. All my Cupid’s Coffeeshop readers know coffee hunk Joe Lockhart. He and his cousins, Patrick and Zooey, run Cupid’s Coffeeshop.

I just love Joe. He’s my bad boy of Ashford Falls. You know how I love writing the bad boys. I envision Joe as a cross between Chris Pine and Josh Holloway (can you imagine how gorgeous THAT man would be?) Ashford Falls does seem to have rather a good population of unbelievably handsome men, doesn’t it?

Joe1 Joe2

Molly McCarthy is the heroine for this one. She used to be a big Silicon Valley programmer but decided she wanted a simpler life so she headed out to Virginia to resurrect an old vineyard. I envision her as Evangeline Lily, wholesome and beautiful.

Introducing Kennedy and Alex

The fifth book in the Cupid’s Coffeeshop series, Cafe Au Lait, arrives this coming Thursday, 5 May. (Happy Cinco de Mayo!) You still have time to pre-order. Lay in some chips, salsa, and guacamole and have a festive reading party!


Love that turquoise cup and saucer. My favorite color!

Longtime readers of the Cupid’s Coffeeshop series have already met chef Kennedy Roberts. She runs the Ashford Falls Cafe which is located in the same shopping square as Cupid’s Coffeeshop. She’s close friends with Val, the heroine of Cupid’s Kiss, and Claire, the heroine of Lucky Latte. I imagine her looking like Melissa McCarthy or Molly Quinn (of Castle fame).

Kennedy1 Kennedy2


Alex Wells is the hero of Cafe Au Lait. He grew up next door to Kennedy and, as he says in the story, been in love with her since he was six. He’s just graduated with his MBA and is back in Ashford Falls for the summer. I imagined him looking like either Danny Strong (of Buffy and Gilmore Girls fame) or a young Paul Rudd (of Clueless fame).

So, will Kennedy and Alex finally act on their lifelong crushes? Find out in Cafe Au Lait.
