My Books :)

Sefton Manor, my baby, has been picked for publication by the wonderful Musa Publishing. A departure from the pure romance of Romancing the Seas, this is a short, fast paced, Gothic horror and love story. I don't know what it is about Sefton Manor but I'm so very excited about it making it's way onto the e-shelves. 

Sefton Manor, a country house that has somehow withstood the ravages of time, holds the key to Martha Kendall's dysfunctional family. Asked by her grandmother to uncover the truth about her missing Aunt, Martha comes to Buckhurst Village and starts to ask questions. Questions that lead her to Will Fellowes, a famous musician whose family tended the grounds of Sefton Manor for centuries. 
 Amidst whispers of pacts with the Devil, they pair up to wrestle the secret from the house.

Or will Sefton Manor consume them all?


My next novella, Mugs and Monasteries, is also due for publication by Musa Publishing. Again this is a Gothic romance, but this time it's set in my home country of Ireland. The Burren, to be precise. Evie Bourke is studying the orchids growing in the area, and meets alpaca farmer, Aiden Dunne. Not just an alpaca farmer, Aiden is hunting for answers to his family's past -- that of missing prior, Eamonn Dunne. Cue some very hair raising moments... 

When orchid hunter, Evie Bourke stumbles across a near deserted monastery deep in the Burren, she has no idea she’s the first person alive to have seen it. All she knows is that life went a bit strange and was getting more bizarre by the minute.
Meeting alpaca farmer Aiden Dunne over a pint of Guinness, she is struck by his resemblance, yet to whom, she can’t quite remember. Aiden is searching for Munster Abbey for his family was connected to it for generations, culminating in the disappearance of his relative, the then Prior. 

What happened all those years ago? Who or what is ‘the Wanderer’ and, more to the point, what does he want?

Saturday just past, I signed a contract with Lyrical Press to publish my contemporary romance 'Taming the Tango Champion' ( :) great name, hey!). I'm totally thrilled that Lyrical liked my writing, and cannot wait to see Ava and Matthias in print. These two are HOT, believe you me. 

London TV presenter, Ava Whittaker, has a baby by Matthias de Romero, the man she loves. The problem? He doesn't know.
Fast forward two years and he’s the judge on a new dance show – one where she's a contestant.

Matthias de Romero leaves women, not vice versa. So how come the one woman who caused his embittered heart to stir walked out?  Two years later, still in search of answers, he allows himself to be talked into becoming a judge on a brand new London television show 'To Dance or Not to Dance', little knowing Ava was a contestant.

Will the glitterball – and her secret – cause their intense feelings to burn out or fan further the flames of desire? 

 I really enjoyed writing The Tango Champion. Originally, it started with Ava on the last leg of her Round the World Trip and I painted the scene where they fell in love. One glorious night under the watchful eyes of the Argentine Andes, let's just say it was fun to write. But their story re-starts when the two meet again in London, as Ava discovers (to her immense horror) that she has to dance in front of the only man she has ever truly desired. I can't say I blame her, I would've been horrified too.

Matthias has a legal reason to watch Ava, to scrutinise her every move. Pure torture for him as there is no way he's going to give her another opportunity to walk out on him. Bless him. Heaven or hell :)? 

Now I just need to wait and see my cover (oooh so exciting) and to find out my release date!! 


The first book I've written, Romancing the Seas, is now available to buy. Here's a blurb, then skip over to first chapters to tantalise yourselves and onto the home page to buy :).

Sous-chef Pippa Renshaw thinks a change of scene will mend a bruised heart, so she swaps her job in a prestigious London restaurant to head-chef on a cruise ship sailing around New Zealand. A great plan until she meets her new CEO, the delectable Jonathon Eagleton, and discovers she has to share a suite with him.
Even though sparks fly whenever they are together, Jonathon steadfastly keeps her at arm’s length, which suits Pippa just fine because she’s still getting over the betrayal of the last time she had a relationship with the boss.
The situation is starting to feel like solitary confinement until a thunderstorm traps them in a tramper’s hut while hiking. Suddenly a different kind of storm unleashes inside the hut. 
But will they be able to go back to their previous status now the line has been crossed?
