Denise Williams Cover & Pre-Order Reveal for Audio-First Novellas
Love Connections: Three Novellas From Denise Williams, Available First on Audio!

Love is in the air for the high-flying protagonists of Denise Williams’ upcoming romance novella series, available first as audiobooks! Get ready to crush hard on The Love Connection, The Missed Connection (on sale May 5, 2022), and The Sweetest Connection (on sale June 7, 2022).

All three novellas will also be available as ebook editions from Berkley Jove following the audiobook publication. Denise Williams’ debut novel How to Fail At Flirting launched her to the top of romance readers’ lists, and this new audio-first romance trilogy set in and around an airport features more interconnected stories of love, longing, and missed connections.

I took my first international flight when I was three months old and I’ve been in love with airports my entire life. There’s something so amazing about thousands of people’s stories coalescing in one place and with the opportunity to write a series, I couldn’t think of a better location. Something I’ve missed the last couple years has been the moments when I step into a terminal to begin a new adventure to somewhere new. All the possibilities of the trip are right there past the security checkpoint. Audiobooks have that same effect on me—when I listen, I get to start a new adventure and my familiar commute is something fresh and exciting. I can learn something new, travel through time, and fall in love all while driving to work. Penguin Random House Audio and these talented narrators are bringing these characters to life and I can’t wait for everyone to hit play, put their seatbacks and tray tables in the upright and locked position, and take off with Ollie and Bennett, Gia and Felix, and Teagan and Silas.Denise Williams

Williams continues to make her mark within the romance genre, presenting multicultural stories featuring women of color that are as heartwarming as they are heart-racing.

In The Love Connection (narrated by January LaVoy and Shane East), Bennett, a professional risk assessor, finds his life of carefully planned stability crashing down when he finds an escaped puppy and returns it to Ollie, an enchanting pet groomer at an airport.

The Missed Connection follows two strangers who share a romantic New Year’s Eve night together in an unromantic setting when they find themselves stuck in an airport during a weather delay. Months later, they are surprised when they discover they’re professional rivals who have been assigned to work together.

Denise Williams wrote her first book in the 2nd grade. I Hate You and its sequel, I Still Hate You, featured a tough, funny heroine, a quirky hero, witty banter, and a dragon. Minus the dragons, these are still the books she likes to write. After penning those early works, she finished second grade and eventually earned a PhD in education, going on to work in higher education. After growing up a military brat around the world and across the country, Denise now lives in Des Moines, Iowa with her husband, son, and two ornery shih-tzus who think they own the house.


Penguin Random House Audio continues to expand its original audio and audio-first publishing, including No One Goes Alone by Erik Larson, MeatEater’s Campfire Stories: Close Calls by Steven Rinella, All Rise by Nick Offerman, and the Ali Hazelwood novella series Under One Roof, Stuck with You, and Below Zero.
