All six senses tell him she’s the one.
Down-to-earth teacher Grace Fox doesn’t believe in anything that can’t be proven by science. So she has no trouble dismissing her best friend’s prediction that she’ll have swear-out-loud sex with the next guy to walk through the door at the school’s parents’ evening.
Enter Ash Rutherford, a famous doctor-turned-medium and Viking lookalike. He’s there to discuss his troubled daughter, Jodie, but one mistaken flash of Grace’s sexy underwear sparks an instant attraction they both struggle to contain.
Grace is happy to help tutor Jodie, but she does her best to resist Ash’s charms, while he’s equally reluctant to fall for another skeptic. When she attends one of his shows, Ash provides more than enough proof of his talents to convince her he’s not faking it. But can she bring herself to trust him?
Warning: contains a real, live Viking, sex on a 1970s sheepskin rug, and a touch of the Twilight Zone.

Callie Summer, CEO of The Four Seasons lingerie business, is in shock.

When the gorgeous Bond-lookalike insists he’ll be the perfect companion on her business trip around the country, Callie agrees to give him a trial. Having recently found her ex in bed with another woman, she’s not looking for love. But a little bit of private lusting never did anyone any harm.

Treats to Tempt You, Book 4.
Fox Wilde loves working at Aqua Blue, his seafood restaurant in Doubtless Bay, New Zealand. But when he lands an interview for head chef at the famous Rutland’s Restaurant in Auckland, the opportunity to work at the exclusive hotel is too good to turn down.
At the interview, the head of the family-run firm makes his old-fashioned standards very clear. Put on the spot, Fox mistakenly invents a fiancée, and then compounds the problem by giving the name of his sexy but volatile friend, Caitlin. Now, Fox has to work out how to convince Caitlin to go along with the ruse and come with him to meet the Rutlands on Halloween.
The last thing on Caitlin Baker’s mind is a long term relationship. After years of putting up with a strict father and a jealous, possessive ex, she’s desperate for some freedom and independence. So when the impertinent Fox announces their sudden engagement, she’s tempted to tell him to stick it where the sun doesn’t shine.
But Caitlin has a secret. She’s had a thing for Fox since the first time she met him, ten years ago, at another Halloween costume party. Fox doesn’t remember her, luckily, as her father ended their steamy clinch with a thermonuclear meltdown from which Fox barely escaped with his life. She feels she owes him. But that entails pretending they’re a couple, which means sharing a room. And that’s never going to end well.

It’s not easy to reinvent yourself, but my thirteen-year-old son and I are ready for a new start. Old Maggie was a magnet for disaster, but New Meg is going to be elegant, sophisticated… and blonde. I’ve landed a dream job at the other end of New Zealand as PA to three rich directors who spoil me rotten, I’ve found a beautiful new apartment, and I feel reborn.
Then I write an email to a friend describing in vivid detail what I want to do to the sexiest of the directors—involving melted chocolate and/or whipped cream—and mistakenly send it to All Staff. It turns out that New Meg is pretty much just Old Maggie with different packaging. Some things never change.
I’ve wanted Meg since she first walked into my office with her soft lips and sexy curves, but she wears another man’s ring, so I’ve steered well clear… until now. My mind’s been occupied anyway since I broke up with my ex, Natalie. She’s desperate to have me back and won’t take no for an answer—so I’ve come up with a brilliant plan, to hire a fake fiancée for Christmas to prove to her that we’re done.
After sending her hot-as-hell email, Meg confesses the truth about her past, and it gives me an idea. She can pretend to be my fiancée, and I can protect her from the guy she’s running from. Sounds like the perfect plan, right? Her teenage son’s no problem because we get on great. Sharing her room? That’s more of a challenge, but I’ve always had excellent self-control.
Yeah, I know. I keep forgetting about the melted chocolate. What an idiot.

A. Getting THREE billionaires for Christmas!
Three Wise Men is a series of three books set in the sub-tropical Northland of New Zealand following the stories of three billionaire brothers and the single mums they fall in love with.
As a single mum who can barely afford to put food on the table, let alone fill her son Ryan’s Christmas stocking with presents, Erin Bloom isn’t particularly looking forward to the festive season. When Ryan has an asthma attack and ends up in hospital, she’s convinced it’s going to be the worst Christmas ever. Sure, Christmas is a time for miracles, but everyone knows wishes don’t really come true.
Consultant pediatrician Brock King lost his wife to cancer two years ago, and he’s convinced the love he felt for her only comes around once in a lifetime. Then, while visiting the children’s ward, he meets single mum Erin, and suddenly his future doesn’t seem so bleak.
Once Ryan recovers, Brock offers to take Erin away for her birthday, no strings attached, to give her the perfect gift every single mum would kill for—a night in an exclusive hotel. Will she take him up on his offer, which might (if she’s very lucky) end up with hot sex with a billionaire? Or should she take the moral high ground and say no?
