Books in this Box Set:

PLAYING FOR LOVE
Sara needs to escape and a gorgeous seaside town in Australia seems like the perfect place. When she finds a lost Beagle on the beach, she also finds herself meeting handsome TV veterinarian, Dr Craig Murray. She vowed that she would never date a celebrity again - she's been burnt too badly before - but now she's beginning to wonder: should she risk another chance at love?

As a national heartthrob, Craig has women falling at his feet, but he is enchanted by the beautiful, curvy American. They may come from different cultures - and even speak different "English" sometimes - but he knows they can have a future together. Can he convince Sara that this is more than just a vacation fling?


PLAYING TO WIN
Ellie Monroe doesn't make mistakes and her dream job in a gorgeous Australian seaside town isn't the place to start. But when a mischievous chocolate Labrador turns her life upside-down, Ellie finds herself meeting handsome veterinarian, Dr Dan O'Brien and wanting to throw caution to the wind for the first time in her life...

Dan has never met a woman quite like Ellie before. The workaholic American is sexy, stubborn, uptight, exasperating - and absolutely fascinating. Australians are famous for their relaxed attitude to life - but can Dan convince Ellie that sometimes you need to make mistakes to open your heart to love?


PLAYING BY HEART
Pippa is finally returning to her home in Australia after six years overseas. She's looking forward to enjoying some sun, sea and sand, with nothing more exciting on the agenda than a job hunt. But Fate has other ideas--first in the shape of a little stray kitten, then in the form of gorgeous veterinarian Dr Matt Pearson.

Fresh from a painful break-up, Matt is very wary of giving his heart again but there's something about Pippa that completely captivates him. When his past catches up with him, Matt is forced to make a choice between playing it safe and taking a gamble on love once more...


PLAYING THE FOOL
Charlie is the youngest vet at a busy animal hospital and passionate about her work. She's horrified when an injured baby koala is brought in - and even more horrified when she recognises the handsome stranger who rescued it as her first love. Todd Novak broke her heart once and there's no way she's letting him get under her defences again!

Todd can't believe that his friend's little sister has grown up into such a beauty. As a dotcom billionaire, he's used to getting what he wants and suddenly, all he wants is the key to Charlie's heart. But with his playboy reputation and her bitter memories, can he ever convince Charlie to give him a second chance?

"Dog lovers young and old will love this rip-roaring, bark-serious adventure... highly recommended" ~ Midwest Book Review

"If you want to get your middle grade reader interested in picking up books, then this is a great place to start." - Net Galley reviewer
 "The author has a great voice with a wonderful sense of humour." - Indie Abode Book Reviews

"I just adored this mystery. Ms. Hanna knows how to hook her readers in, both young and old." - Night Owl Reviews (Top Pick)

"We are loving this book. My 10 year old son who has a short attention span cannot get enough." - Net Galley reviewer

"I've read a few books marketed for middle-grades or younger this year and I have to say that this is hands down the best suited for those ages. It has a great plot, some truly well-rounded characters (with more depth than what I find in most adult novels these days) and a climax that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Not only was this book highly entertaining but there are some great messages in it."- LitChick Hit List
