An emotional, heartwarming New Zealand romance.

One macho cowboy, one nerdy astronomer... and a heartache that neither could have seen in the stars...

Cowboy Morgan West was raised on his mother's stories of Glencoe and the Mackenzie family who ran it. Heartbroken after a bitter break-up, he decides to see the place and people for himself. He intends to work for one season only, but then he meets Rebecca—a woman he craves and a woman, he believes, he doesn't deserve.

When mysterious Morgan West begins to turn up wherever she is, astronomer Rebecca Mayhew is confused. She can tell anyone who asks how many miles Saturn is from the earth (roughly 746 million) and the likelihood of there being life on another planet (high), but she can't begin to explain in rigorous scientific terms why her fingers itch to caress Morgan's broad muscled back, or why the only calculation on her mind is how long it would take to kiss every square inch of him.

She's confused, yet curious, and Morgan is more than happy to satisfy that curiosity. But instead of their physical relationship clarifying things, Rebecca's nice neat orderly world unravels as both her and Morgan's painful pasts are exposed, revealing secrets that have the potential to explode more than just their own worlds.

Synopsis

Jade Roberts is in love with Talon Steel but no longer welcome in his home. While she resolves to move on, she still longs for the passion she and Talon shared…and when her boss asks her to dig up information on the Steels, she’s only too happy to comply. Talon and his brothers are hiding something, and Jade is determined to find out what it is.

The moment Talon saw Jade he wanted her, ached for her, craved her…and now his desire has become his obsession. He knows she deserves better than his broken soul, but he can’t stay away from her, and he finally confesses his love. If he and Jade are to have a future, he knows he must make peace with the dark shadows and horrors of his past.

But as Talon begins his journey of healing, Jade uncovers some startling secrets…

 Ever wanted to visit New Zealand? Why not whet your appetite with a ‘virtual’ visit by reading The Mackenzies series?
Against a backdrop of beautiful New Zealand locations—deserted beaches, Wellington towers, snow-capped South Island mountains—the three Mackenzie brothers and their close friends fall in love.

However the road to a happy ever after is never easy in my books! There are intense emotions, sexy times, and some unexpected twists and turns. Happy reading!

This boxed set contains the last three books in the six-book series:

The Cowboy's Craving
One macho cowboy, one nerdy astronomer... and a heartache that neither could have seen in the stars... Morgan West is more than happy to satisfy astronomer Rebecca Mayhew's curiosity about sex.

The Playboy's Redemption
James Mackenzie is tired of his shallow lifestyle and wants a family. But before he begins his new life he wants to secure the future of the woman he wronged ten years before. The last thing Susie Henderson needs is her ex lover buying the winery in which she works and threatening her independence. Because how can she trust someone who betrayed her, someone who doesn't even believe in himself?

The Lakehouse Cafe
Single mother and café manager Lizzi Burnett has moved on from her abusive ex-husband and is determined to never be vulnerable again—even if that mean not trusting anyone.
