Josh McInnes’ biological clock is ticking and he wants to get married—now. After 20 years singing soppy love songs, he knows that there is no such thing as romantic love. There’s only hormones and lust. At thirty-five, he’s tired of his playboy lifestyle. He wants a wife who isn’t interested in fame, money, or romance. A sensible wife, who values commitment. He wants a partnership, a friendship, and none of the craziness that goes with falling in love. As far as he can see, there’s only one way to get exactly what he wants—he needs an arranged marriage.
…add a Scottish librarian who has given up on ever falling in love…
Caroline Patterson terrifies men. With her no-nonsense attitude, and ice queen demeanour, she’s in control of everything—and everyone—around her. Her sensible shoes and grey skirt suits act like a force field, repelling male attention. At thirty-one, she can’t remember the last time she went on a date and is beginning to think she’ll never have a family of her own. When an American stranger approaches Caroline with a marriage proposal that resembles a business contract, she quickly accepts. She doesn’t expect romance. But she does expect to control each and every detail of their lives together. Because as life has taught her—if you aren’t in control, bad things happen.
…and you get romance Invertary style!
Josh and Caroline learn the hard way that falling in love isn’t something you can avoid. And it definitely isn’t something you can control. Their well laid plans are about to degenerate into chaos, as they fall in love the Scottish way.
Kirsty Campbell has spent years rebuilding her life after she woke up in hospital in Spain to find her body scarred, and her ex-fiance had run off with all her money. The last thing she needs is a cocky, English soldier-boy trying to ruin all she has left. Her home town is only too happy to help her fight the latest English invasion, although Lake is beginning to sway them with his sex appeal and cut price knickers. With the help of her mother, and the retired ladies of Knit or Die, Kirsty sets about making sure that her shop is the last one standing in Invertary.
It’s Scotland versus England as you’ve never seen it before. It’s lingerie war.
"This is the kind of book that leaves you feeling good! Janet Elizabeth Henderson's Lingerie Wars ranks right up there with books from some of my favorites authors in this sub-genre; Molly Harper, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Jennifer Crusie and Susan Donovan...just to name a few! Her writing is excellent, the book is filled with wonderful dialogue and her humor will no doubt strike a chord with many readers, it certainly did with me! She tickled my funny bone...big time!!" From Swept Away By Romance
And it’s all falling apart...
The Scottish Highlands are in the middle of the worst snow storm in decades. Cell towers are down, electricity is out and roads are closed.
In true Invertary style the town’s folk have decided to ignore the weather and carry on with the party. Kirsty is at the castle, in the middle of her hen-night and having second thoughts about the wedding. Lake is enduring his stag-do at the town’s only pub, helpfully organised by his 'best man' eighty-nine year old Betty. Rainne, Lake’s sister, has come back to town after three years away to not only attend the wedding, but to see if Alastair will give her a second chance to love him. Oh yeah, and a whole bunch of men with guns have surrounded the castle!
The castle is under siege. The town is under snow. The men are stuck at the pub and the women are on their own. With emotions running high, snow falling hard and lives on the line, the residents of Invertary are about to stage the wedding of the century.
PLEASE NOTE: Unlike the rest of the books in my Invertary series, this one isn't a standalone novel. Here Comes The Rainne Again follows up on the characters in the first book in the series—Lingerie Wars. Because of this, I recommend that you read Lingerie Wars before Here Comes The Rainne Again, otherwise you might get a bit lost—and we don’t want that. :) Lucky for you, Lingerie Wars is currently free to download! Happy reading!
Now she has all kinds of undesirables after her—some to straight up kill her and others who want to steal what’s locked in her head. So, she’ll need the help of a ruthless mercenary, Striker, if she has any chance at survival. That he’s a jerk, who she wants to punch in the face, well...a dying woman sometimes has to make tough choices.
Striker’s special abilities have kept him in the shadows for a reason. He has no interest in getting mixed up with the smart-mouthed, hard-headed women no matter how his body reacts. But then he discovers what’s in her head and all bets are off.
This is the edited and updated version of one of my early romance novels. I've always had a soft spot for Davina and Jack's story, partly because it's set in Brighton - a town I lived in and loved. And partly because the main characters are so different from each other. Davina is dippy and full of life, while Jack is cynical and buttoned up. Together they're explosive! I hope you enjoy their story. Happy reading! Janet x
When disgraced cop Jack Miller inherited a house, he also inherited a tenant. She's sexy, mysterious and obviously up to no good. With the police department breathing down his neck, the only way Jack can get his job back is to prove he's squeaky clean. That means getting rid of his dodgy tenant.
Davina Davenport desperately wants to be an actress. So desperate that she's trying to make a movie using 'borrowed' equipment and her rented house as a cheap location. Her plan is to post the film online, become an overnight sensation and move to Hollywood. Unfortunately things aren't going to plan. Her boss at the TV station keeps asking about the missing equipment, her cop landlord is nosing around (her and the house) and the creepy cameraman from work wants to trade sex for his film-making skills.
If the movie gets made before Davina ends up fired, in jail or in Jack's bed, it will be a miracle!
PLEASE NOTE: This book used to be called Action.
