Coming October 12th 2016 and available to pre order now! 

The Greek Tycoon's Tarnished Bride.

He loves power, material success...and sex.

Erica Silver has never done things the “usual” way. A single mom working towards a degree in psychology, she's paying her way as an exotic dancer. No one can tell Erica how to live her life...especially not some handsome, arrogant Greek stranger, who wants to take her son away from his “unfit” mother.

Successful entrepreneur Tito Makris has no choice but to fulfill his best friend's last wish. He must bring his friend's son to Greece to claim a multi-billion euro legacy. Still, taking the boy from his mother—however tarnished she may be—is pretty much the last thing Tito wants. So he offers Erica a radical choice: marry him and stay with her son...or lose the boy—and him—forever.

I've been a while ...

... but here's a quick update on happenings in 2015.

My part in the Entangled Indulgence Men of the Zodiac series is scheduled for release in October 2015 and we're talking a hot, green-eyed Greek this time so don't be in too much of a rush to put your fans away this autumn!

I will be attending the Romantic Novelists' Association Annual Conference in London this year in July, so hope to meet and catch up with as many readers and fellow authors as possible. And publishers. And agents. There may also be the odd bottle of wine and bag of pork scratchings involved. :0)

And there's other stuff bubbling quietly away in the background so I'll be back to talk about that as and when I can on those.

In the meantime here's a little pic of my faithful writing buddy to entertain. All this sunshine is making him sooooo sleepy.

Sicilian Engagement - behind the book

I'm over on the Entangled blog today spilling the beans on how the seed for Sicilian Engagement was sown. Warning: very bad Lyndhurst hair day alert! It was an early start ... ;0)

Hard to Forget.

Hard to Forget: isn't that a cool title?  And the cover of this new title from my lovely friend Incy Black is equally memorable. So I'm thrilled to welcome Incy here today to tell us a bit about her explosive new book from Entangled Ignite. Over to you, Incy!

 Ode to a Strong Woman

Major Jack Ballentyne, mega alpha-hero in Hard to Forget, tends to grab most attention, because when he’s being a dick, his behavior seemingly knows no bounds. However sexy, he’s still a man without conscience. A man in denial. And it was always going to take one hell of a woman to bring about this British Intelligence Agent‘s redemption. Enter disgraced Lowry Fisk—the woman Jack shot, then had court marshaled.

Fragile on the surface, Lowry’s backbone is made of steel; her inner strength sets her apart. Buried within her are the qualities all women share, to whatever degree, though they may not realize it.

  • She’s a survivor. Life cuts, she recovers.
  • She knows when to advance, and when to retreat. When to battle, and when to negotiate—most of the time. (She’s not perfect).
  • She tempers compassion with humor, and practical action.
  • She has an instinctive map to getting her own way. (Detours allowed)
  • Forgiveness can be earned, but she never forgets.
  • Her inner war cry is, ‘No Surrender’.

Lowry wasn’t easy to write, at times it felt impossible. But then I looked to women in the media, women sharing on line, and above all, to my friends. Each was ‘making a difference’, quietly, in their own inimitable way. And, in each one of them, I saw strength. So, high-five to being female!

Extract from Hard to Forget:

The absurdity of the situation struck, she started laughing. “Do you have to intimidate everyone, Ballentyne?”
If it gets the job done.”

Her laughter stopped at the word ‘job.’ 
“And to hell with the consequences?”
She flexed and wriggled against him. He released her. She stepped away to give them both some distance before turning to face him, appalled by the sob stuck in her throat. She wouldn’t cry. She never cried. She might never stop. “You should have asked your stupid questions and listened to my answers four years ago, Jack, because that was your job,” she said quietly.
His hands cupped the curves of her shoulders. “I’m asking, and listening, now.”
I think you might have left it too bloody late. Patient Peter’s invincible, and he knows it. You and—”
The kiss he brushed across her lips was as unexpected as it was shockingly inappropriate for its timing. But not as shocking as his second pass, his mouth now more certain. Firm and more insistent. Transforming from casual to demanding as if her surrender was not just inevitable, but worth the risk and what the hell.
And nowhere near as shocking and inexplicable as her response. Feral and urgent. Like a wild animal caged for too long and suddenly released.
It was she who closed the distance. She who raised her arms to clasp him closer. She who hung on tight. She who opened to allow him a deeper taste. And she who all but climbed his body in need.
He was the one who pulled back. Unwinding her legs from around his waist, he set her firmly aside.
I kissed you to shut you up about Patient Peter, Lowry, not to start anything,” he said softly. “Think twice before you beckon me down that road, because I won’t apologize later for taking what’s freely offered.” A calm warning. A slap in the face.
She returned the favor.
Her palm made contact with the flat of his cheek with enough force to knock his face from front to profile.
A spurt of bullets riddled an uneven line in the plaster above her head.

Lora Pryce-Howard has been conned into playing Ferrante's fiancée thanks to her low life brother. And if she wants to keep her business, a roof over her ailing mother's head, and her brother alive she'll play along. She refuses to be seduced by a luxurious Mediterranean lifestyle, but Ferrante's soft words and burning kisses make leaving all the more difficult...

Grab a beer , it's publication day!

It's taken me a little while and, like a fine brew, there are some things that can't be rushed, but today is the day: Blackmailed by the Billionaire Brewer is launched courtesy of Entangled Publishing!

Isn't Matt DeLeo just a little bit tasty on the cover there on the right?

And do you remember this picture? Research was so hard  for this one ...
Pink beer tasting and the company of a warm cat - wonderful. But utterly necessary - read the book and you'll find out why!

Here's the blurb:

Piper Reilly is in trouble. She needs a cash infusion, and she’s just left a scorching hot man in Florida to get her life in Colorado back on track. Then her surfside one-night-stand turns out to be her new boss, billionaire Matt DeLeo, with an offer she can’t refuse—agree to be the face of his brewery’s newest concoction or lose her job. A few weeks modelling for the billionaire playboy and her money worries are over, and she can definitely resist Matt’s gorgeous smile and muscular, tattooed arms—it’s strictly business.

 Matt DeLeo is in trouble. He’s found the perfect woman to sell Passion Creek Brewery’s newest brew, but if he wants her on his posters, he’ll have to keep his hands to himself. But all he wants to do is drink in Piper. And once the launch is over, it will take more than blackmail for Matt to get his way.

Available now to sample or buy worldwide as an eBook, here are the Major buy links .

My publisher is also celebrating with a special giveaway (US only):
