Undercover Lover Publishes Today

For the last couple of months, I've been telling anybody who listens that I've got a short romance publishing on March 31st. It turns out, I was wrong.


My story, Undercover Lover, part of the Sweet & Sassy Hidden Identities Anthology, is now available on Kindle. I couldn't be more excited! The best part is, for now, that it's available for ninety-nine cents, plus you get eight other stories inside the anthology. The price will soon go up to $2.99, so the best time to get this anthology is RIGHT NOW!! All of them are romances with the theme of a character having a hidden identity.

Hold on, I'll wait while you buy it....

Sweet and Sassy Anthology: Hidden Identities

Thanks for coming back after that really easy purchase. Whew, I'm sure you snuck in under the radar right before Amazon jacked up the price. Here are what others are saying about Undercover Lover:

Before I sat down to read, I was a bit skeptical at how a story could flesh out a decent romance in so few words without it feeling forced. But I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed “Undercover Lover”! The main characters were wonderfully written. I actually laughed out loud several times at their witty banter and couldn’t help but like them. I was also pleasantly surprised that there was a perfect dose of depth and emotion to make them feel real. Very well done! Loved it!"

"I just read James Duckett’s story, Undercover Lover, and I loved it! The characters were really easy to love, especially Hannah. Johnny’s opinion of her was so sweet. It was wonderful to read about a guy that was interested in the woman, not the body. Johnny was a real trooper, trying his best despite all the setbacks, and you really couldn’t help but root for him to complete his mission and get the girl. I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough, ready to read what comes next and laugh out loud. While there are serious situations, the humor and sarcasm break it up, making the story a joy to read." 
- Michelle Reid

"Undercover Lover is a charming little gem with well developed characters and a thoughtfully written story line. I truly enjoyed the idea of a 'novelette' as time doesn't often permit me the luxury of finishing an entire book these days. I was delightfully surprised that in 47 short pages, I was able to really get to 'know' 3 characters, root for the good guy, root for love and simply enjoy every page. I especially loved the clever wit and banter between the two romantic leads. It is clear that the author has an excellent sense of humor. Humor aside, it was a great mystery and action story, nestled right in the middle of a charming love story. I look forward to more from this author and this 'novelette' type medium. Highly Recommended!"

"Undercover Lover is a quick read, which is the point of a short story! I honestly had a good chuckle at the end, and applaud James Duckett for giving me something that's left me questioning the ending in a fun and delightful way! There were several times that I left, and would recommend this short story to anyone who enjoys a light read with some humor." 
- Gina Larsen

"James Duckett’s Undercover Lover is a great book for fans of humor, clean romance, and action, because it has it all! Johnny and Hannah have an entertaining relationship with lots of witty banter, and though it has to form quickly in this short story format, it doesn’t feel forced. With an exciting climax and a great twist at the end, readers are sure to feel satisfied at the finish."
