After all, their families hate each other and there's unfinished history between them...along with some serious sexual chemistry! Now they're consumed by a wicked game of lust – they'll give each other mindless pleasure, but nothing else. No one can know, but keeping something this sexy a secret makes everything a whole lot hotter…
Writing is a far cry from the medical career she once had, but it provides an endless source of inspiration to J C Harroway. From her home in New Zealand, and inspired by her travels and Welsh roots, she creates stories with strong, independent heroines and the compelling, three-dimensional heroes worthy of them. Entwined is her second novel. You can follow her at:
When an accident leaves her with severe burns, Captain Eden Archer has one goal – to get back to full fitness and her duties at her United Nations job. Eden is not a joiner, but the Ruby Challenge – a four–day hike across Nevada's Ruby Mountains – seems like a great way to boost her rehabilitation, and to prove herself ready and able to move on. She just has to get through the pre–challenge medical.
As a doctor in Accident and Emergency, Dan Barbour is used to dealing with people in pain, people in denial, and people who don't much like doctors, but the prickly servicewoman who dismisses his medical skills awakens an interest that has long been dormant.
The Ruby Mountain hike is as much about the emotional challenge as the physical, and as Eden and Dan find themselves getting closer and closer, they both face enormous obstacles. Eden protects her heart with distance and reserve; Dan keeps everyone at bay by being wholly unavailable. But if they stay true to their old course, they will lose the one chance at a real connection, the one chance to really find someone to love.
A broken–hearted doctor and a reluctant patient should be a match made in heaven, but are Eden and Dan strong enough to find courage outside of their respective battlefields and expose their hearts?
When jaded movie director, Tyler Wentworth meets Mallory Hughes on the set of his latest movie, he immediately notices two things: she's too sweet and she's somehow familiar. But he has no time for mysteries – as long as she can do her job and continue to keep her notorious starlet out of trouble, she can keep her secrets.
Mallory knows exactly who Tyler is, the young man she had a huge crush on has grown to a Hollywood heavy–weight. But the last thing she wants is to be associated with the shy, awkward girl she was then. She's here professionally, managing her troubled sister who has the talent to be the biggest star on screen, but a turbulent past. This is Bobbie's last and best shot, and Mallory will do nothing to jeopardise it.
But as the filming begins, Mallory not only finds herself drawn more deeply to this grown–up Tyler, but that her attraction is more than reciprocated and she can't help herself from indulging in all of her girlish fantasies. However, when their pasts catch up, she is going to have to choose between the sister she's devoted her life to and the man who's won her heart.

Grown up Morgan is infinitely hotter, infinitely more successful, and infinitely harder to ignore.
When they re–kindle the explosive physical connection between them, Jess hopes they've burned it out of their systems.

But as Morgan and Jess explore their searing passion during that lost weekend, Jess is tempted by what might have been and haunted by the ghosts of what was. She has two days to decide whether to keep her secrets or keep the only man she's ever loved.
