welcome

Welcome to my love stories for hopeful romantics!

I’m Jacquelyn Middleton, award-winning author of contemporary fiction and contemporary romance, and the 2019 recipient of the BEST CANADIAN AUTHOR award from the Toronto chapter of the Romance Writers of America. Thank you so much for stopping by.

My fourth book, SAY HELLO, KISS GOODBYE, a story of love, second chances, gratitude, and finding beauty in the broken and the forgotten, is NOW AVAILABLE in paperback from Barnes & Noble, Book Depository, Bookshop.org, and The Ripped Bodice, and as an ebook from Kindle, Nook, Kobo, and AppleBooks. This standalone contemporary romance is oh, so steamy and warmly heartfelt, and will whisk you off to London, New York, and Scotland (the breathtaking Orkney Islands). It also deals with mental health honestly and empathetically, and as an own voices author who has had anxiety and depression throughout my life, I’m really proud of this story.

Publishers Weekly’s BookLife deemed SAY HELLO, KISS GOODBYE an Editor’s Pick and said “Leia and Tarquin’s chemistry sizzles…this sultry, yet sweetly heartfelt romance is a winner” while BlueInk Review, a partner of Booklist, the magazine of the American Library Association raved, “The two main characters are deeply described and undeniably endearing…romance fans will be grateful they picked up this novel,” and gave the book a STARRED review! Pretty amazing, right? Kirkus Reviews opined SAY HELLO, KISS GOODBYE “offers well-drawn, multilayered characters and standout, sex-positive romance. Sex scenes are steamy, well-written, and anti-shaming.”

I can’t wait for YOU to read SAY HELLO, KISS GOODBYE!
