Allyson Charles writes small-town, contemporary romances with heat and humor. A former attorney, she happily ditched those suits and now works in her pajamas writing about men’s briefs instead of legal briefs. When she’s not writing, she’s probably engaged in one of her favorite hobbies: napping, eating, or martial arts (That last one almost makes up for the first two, right?). She also writes steamy historicals as Alyson Chase.

I'm working on a lot of different things right now. Just finishing up my edits on a historical romance for a series that will be published this summer under a different pen name. I'm plotting out a novella for an anthology that will be out next year, and plotting my next novel which will be the start to an animal rescue series. Add in the fact I have my third Pineville novel coming out May 9, and I end each night feeling like I need a big drink to relax!(less)

That was the last book in the Pineville series, but my next series, starting with Forever Home, is set in the same world and includes some familiar faces. I also have a short story set in the Pineville world, free for my newsletter subscribers. Sign up here if you'd like to read it: https://www.allysoncharles.com/newsle...
And I'm hoping to write more short stories for my newsletter group in between future projects. Thanks for the question!(less)

Writing Update 7.11.21

I don't know about everyone else, but this summer isn't quite going how I wanted it to. I always think my summers will be spent sipping margaritas on my patio as I read the latest hot book.

In reality, I've spent the last month digging up grass and hauling gravel in order to xeriscape parts of my yard. Twelve and a half TONS of gravel. And I still have to order a bit more to finish up.

But, regardl

“Annie cookies. Or more precisely, anise cookies. The name got butchered somewhere along the way."
He took another bite and let the flavors explode on his tongue. "It's sweet and spicy and tart all at the same time. Your grandmother was a genius."
Cassie arched a white-painted eyebrow. "I don't think she invented anise cookies. But yeah, I like the mix of the licorice flavoring with a sugar cookie. She used to make them for Christmas, but I think they're better for Halloween. Anise just seems like a darker, more complex spice, something suited for goblins and ghouls rather than a jolly Santa Claus." She reached up and wiped a bit of icing from his lip, then blushed. She ducked her head back to her cookie. "The icing has a bit of lemon juice in it. I think the citrus gives the anise a nice punch."
Chip rubbed his mouth, his flesh still humming from her touch. Cassie was the one who packed a punch. She was just like her grandmother's cookies: a mix of sweet and heat, spice and tart. Every part of her he found appealing, knowing it all added up to this complex woman.”

“I just want to sink my teeth into one of them so badly."
Cassie pressed her forearm tighter against her breasts and leaned backward. "Excuse me?" So, she might have let Franca talk her into this provocative getup and her girls were on display. That was still no excuse for such-
"I think I want a cannoli today." He pointed at the display case. "But the caramel ricotta cheesecake smells incredible. I can never decide."
Cassie's cheeks heated. "Oh. Right. The food." She tugged at her bodice, but the reality was it didn't matter. At Bellaluna's, she could have been standing in line naked and everyone's attention would still be on the pastries. They were just that good.”

“I was just wondering if your house always smells like this. That could explain it," he muttered to himself.
"Explain what?"
He locked his gaze on her, the color of his eyes darkening to a forest after a rain. "You. You smell like the most delicious cookie I've never had. Sweet with a little bit of spice. Absolutely mouthwatering."
Her heartbeat pounded in her ears. He sounded like a starved man ordering a juicy steak.”
