A FARE TO REMEMBER is now available – the wait is over!
This is a very special release for me. It was actually my husband who suggested the idea for this book, years ago. It’s been 15 years in the making, and now it’s finally out there! I’m so excited to hear what you think!
Stevie has given up on love and just wants a simple life driving her taxi. But her plans are turned upside down when gorgeous billionaire Reid Jacobs steps into the back of her cab. Commanding and mysterious, he’s a temptation she can’t resist—and soon their torrid one night stand leads to an intoxicating affair.
In Reid’s strong arms, Stevie finds herself falling harder than she ever imagined. But is she ready to trust again? And when his business partner falls for Stevie, will it change everything? One thing is clear: she’s about to take the ride of her life….

A Big Package is coming your way today!
Warning: This one is sure to warm up chilly nights! 😉
Baby it’s cold outside…but things are about to heat up.
I missed the last bus to my sister’s for Christmas, and now I’m stranded in a bus station—in the middle of a blizzard—with a giant package covered in naughty wrapping paper.
Then he shows up: Kalen Welles, the football star from my high school fantasies—and offers me a ride. Just when the car is getting cozy, the roads get shut down due to snow. Luckily there’s a nearby cabin where we can hole up for the night.
A warm fireplace, cozy blankets, pent-up longing we both spent years ignoring… maybe I’ll be able to unwrap Kalen’s big package before Christmas morning.
But when the snow clears and the ice melts, will the former football star and the shy nerd finally get a happy ending?
“Ottawa? That’s where I’m headed. I just dropped my sister off to catch a bus to Tampa and I’m driving back to Ottawa now. I could give you a ride.”
Her eyes lit up, and she sat up straighter. “Really? I don’t believe it. That would be wonderful.”
He patted the box. “I even have room for your big package.”
Her eyes glittered. “Shouldn’t I be saying that?”
She covered her mouth, her eyes widening and her cheeks turning bright red. “Oh, God, I can’t believe I said that. My mouth gets away from me sometimes.”
He laughed and suddenly realized that her gaze had settled squarely on his crotch. When she realized where she was looking, she her gaze darted away again, her cheeks turning even redder.
“Well, between your mouth and the big package, the trip promises to be fun,” he said.
At the wicked grin on his face, her cheeks flushed a deeper red.
“Look, really. I’m not coming on to you. I just . . . it was a silly joke. Nerves overcoming my stupidity censor.”
He smiled warmly. “Don’t worry about it. I don’t think you’re coming on to me.” Actually, he had, but from her blazing cheeks, he realized this was out of character for her.
He held out his hand. “My name is Kalen Welles.”
She shook it. “I’m Holly Benson.”
Bring home your Big Package now!

It’s Canada’s birthday!!! Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians!
(Okay, I’m a little late posting this.)
To celebrate, I’ve gotten together with a number of other Canadian romance authors to create a special box set with stories ranging from steamy to extremely hot erotic romance which we are giving away for free.
Some conditions apply. Well actually just one condition. You approve being added to our mailing list so we can let you know about new book releases.
Just a reminder that I have two fun releases coming out this summer.
MEAT – Coming July 26!
If you like heroes who are strong, sexy, protective, bad ass and… um… BIG (and I don’t mean just muscular), then you’ll love Rex!
Just one taste isn’t enough…
I ran into Rex Keene—literally—when I was trying to catch my flight and his muscled, tattooed arms stopped my fall.
Then when our flight gets canceled, and we’re stranded in the same hotel room together; it ended up being the steamiest night of my life.
All I knew is that I had to see him again.
I just didn’t expect him to show up a week later in the restaurant I manage…as our new head chef. The generous, tender man I spent that night with is gone; instead he’s arrogant, demanding, and terrorizing the staff.
But he won’t give up until we’re together – and I’m not sure I can stay away.
Which man is real? Who is Rex Keene?
NAILED – Coming August 23rd!
He’s about to take control of her body…and her dream.
When River set up a fundraiser to kick start her nail polish business, she never expected someone to pay five thousand dollars just to have dinner with her. But when she meets her mysterious benefactor, he turns out to be billionaire Kane Winters—the one man from her past who she never wanted to see again.
Kane is determined to right the wrong that happened to River in college—because of him. She’s been an obsession he can’t escape…and Kane wants River more than he’s ever wanted anything. So he offers her a deal she can’t refuse: marry him and her business will be success. But River’s knight in shining armor isn’t looking for a platonic business deal. He wants their marriage to be real…in every way.
“Carew brings erotic romance to a whole new level…she sets your senses on fire!” –Reader to Reader
All the best,
The man who kidnapped me has haunted my dreams for weeks. Now I’ve tracked him down, determined to convince him to give us a chance.
I’ve seen his eyes with a dominating edge. I’ve seen them filled with passion. And even filled with an intense need that rivaled my own. But now those eyes are cold and detached, as if what the two of us shared was nothing to him. But I won’t give up.
Kalie wants a relationship. But I’m not a romantic kind of guy. Just because she enjoyed a fantasy about being kidnapped by two strong, powerful men, she thinks she can handle what I want. She doesn’t get that what I enjoy is in a whole different league.
So I will give her the chance she’s been begging for, confident that in the end, she’ll be begging to get away from me.
All books in the Mastered By series are stand-alone HEA stories with no cliff-hangers and can be read in any order.
Also available in print through Amazon and CreateSpace!:https://www.createspace.com/6285190

How far will she go to get the life she’s always wanted? Dana’s always had a clear vision of how her life would go and how she’d get there, but when her father dies during her final year of college, her whole world threatens to topple down. In desperate need of money, she takes a drastic step. She decides to auction off her virginity.
Mason is used to getting what he wants. The head of his own corporate empire, he has wealth, means, and no shortage of beautiful women ready to fulfill his every need. But despite having it all, Mason is bored. Until he comes face-to-face with a woman from his past. Unable to let Dana slip away again, Mason bids on the one thing he’s always wanted, even if it is completely forbidden. He’s fantasied about having her to himself for years, touching her smooth skin, tasting her sweet lips, but Dana is off-limits, or is she? What started out as a way for each of them to get what they’ve always wanted is about to turn into so much more….
Please let your friends know! 🙂

Hi! Many of you may know that I am a nail polish fanatic. I love nail polish because of the delightful colours, textures, finishes, et cetera, that I can appreciate at all times. My desk is by a big window looking out into the backyard and I love the sparkle of the sun on my nails while I type. (Okay, I write ALL THE TIME, so I have no time for hobbies! Lol!) Anyway, it’s also a fun way to bring out my creativity in a visual way.
The reason I’m telling you this is because… BIG NEWS… I was able to convince my editor at St. Martin’s Press that I should write a book where the heroine is starting her own indie nail polish company! Of course, in addition to fun stuff about nail polish, there’s intrigue, domination, a sexy man from her past, more domination, and a reluctant marriage of convenience!
As part of the writing and the promoting, I am hoping to connect with nail polish bloggers and vloggers to talk about the book and…
I’m so excited about this…
Literary Lacquers is going to produce the nail polish collection from the book! Squeee!!!! I’m absolutely thrilled!
The book and the polish collection will be released on August 23rd and I can hardly wait!!!
