What Are AmberPax™ Collections?

Simply put, AmberPax™ Collections are groups of five stories centered around a specific theme. Each story within an AmberPax™ is released individually, on the same day as the others, and can be purchased separately, but these five stories can also be purchased as a single unit (the full AmberPax™) at a discount, currently 25%. Generally, an AmberPax™ is similar to an "anthology" of stories, but instead of the titles being released in only a single volume (file), they are also available individually. These AmberPax™ Collections are sold exclusively through our website and only in electronic format.

THIS BLOG is for news about the Pax Collections - follow it to keep up with releases, find early news of the upcoming collections, and share Pax fun and chat with the authors!

London Calling Series by Christiane France

I started this series with RAINDROPS AND ROSES:

A few hours before his flight home, Drew meets Englishman, Michael Dawson. There’s chemistry between them and lots of it. But is it real or not? With no time to find out, Drew decides to enjoy the moment. After all, they’re just ships passing in the night, right?

On August 18 the next book, SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE, was released:

Cal and Rob met as teenagers, hoping to make it in Hollywood. Rob became a major star; Cal a reporter for an entertainment magazine. When Cal caught Rob with another man, he threw Rob out. Now, after two years’ silence, Rob calls, wanting Cal to interview him for his magazine. Breaking up is hard, but making up can be even harder. Is it even possible?

This is my favorite of the four stories and will probably be released late November 2013. No cover as yet, but here’s the blurb:

Paul knew Nico was special the moment they exchanged that first glance at Termini station in Rome late one hot summer afternoon. And when it was announced their train had been cancelled and travel suspended until further notice, they explored their feelings over dinner and a night of passion in a nearby hotel. 

Early next morning, when Nico found a flight cancellation and took off, all Paul knew about him was his first name. 

Two years later, Paul hasn’t forgotten Nico and when they meet again at another train station in London the chemistry is still there. Nico believes Fate brought them together. He’s ready to close his eyes and jump. Paul believes they need to be sensible. Check the water first and then take it one step at a time.

A HAPPY CHRISTMAS ENDING is the fourth and final book and the second half of the story that started with RAINDROPS AND ROSES. It will likely be released early December 2013. Drew and Michael are still together, but only just. Michael has a couple of major problems to deal with, but rather than allow Drew to help he puts pride first and insists on doing everything his way. There are cameo appearances from Paul and Nico (One Perfect Night) who assist in solving one of the problems.


Simply Irresistible by Christiane France is now available at Amber Allure.

  1. Sounds intriguing. I haven't read the first book in the series yet but plan on doing so. And since "One Perfect Night" takes place in Rome too, it's a must read for me as well.

  2. First I've heard of these collections. I like the fact that the reader has a choice of buying each title singly or as a collection with the discount. (Always a good thing for a voracious reader like me.)

    1. Hey, Anne! In case you didn't see the post, you were the winner of the giveaway this week. :) If you could email me at vivien_dean@yahoo.com, we'll get that collection to you as soon as possible.

  3. The stories sound very good. Would love to win the collection. Will also look for the books to read.
