The Boat Builder’s Bargain is the sweeter edition of Kris Pearson’s The Boat Builder’s Bed. No swearing, less sex, but still plenty of flirting.

A single mom and a billionaire. A beautiful house that needs her touch, and a beautiful man who needs her love even more.

Superyacht tycoon Rafe Severino wants a woman. Desperately. Someone who can decorate his lonely new mansion with its million-dollar views over Wellington harbor and return his life to normality. Rafe yearns to marry again and start a better family than the one he came from. He gets more than he bargains for with Sophie Calhoun.

Newly established decorator Sophie seeks to make her mark on the city, but to concentrate on her design studio she has been parted from her adored daughter for the last several years. When Rafe confesses the ugly truth of his upbringing, Sophie sees disaster ahead. Rafe was also hidden away, and it tore him apart. Will he ever forgive Sophie if he discovers she’s done the same with little Camille?

A heart-warming story of family, love, loss, dangerous currents, and maybe love regained.

About the author

New Zealander Kerri has been a spinner of stories since childhood. She worked first as a writer for radio, then in the wider advertising industry, and now devotes herself to romantic fiction. She enjoys sharing her beautiful country with the world, and creates stories full of real people in believable situations. Three of her many novels were finalists in New Zealand’s Clendon Award.

Perhaps you already know her as Kris Pearson (her real name.) If your reading preference is clean language and to keep the bedroom door further closed, these new sweeter editions might be just what you’d enjoy. They're the same basic stories – fun and flirty. You’ll still know what’s going on, but your imagination will have to supply the details. Does that sound fair?

The first five Wellington books have been re-written as the ‘Hearts around the Harbor’ series. If they sell well, then Kerri has a lot more work ahead of her. She’s a keen gardener, a Soroptimist, sometimes a painter, and co-ordinator of the local romance writers' meetings in her home city of Wellington, but she'll find time!

Out of Reach is the sweeter edition of Kris Pearson’s Out of Bounds. No swearing, less sex, but still plenty of flirting.

   

Jetta Rivers is now the owner of half a dilapidated bungalow. Big problem: her past has left her terrified of men, and she’s forced to share the house with the unknown co-owner. Architect Anton has plans to demolish, rebuild, and make a million bucks. Jetta is determined to renovate, remember her Gran, and stay well out of Anton’s reach. A midnight disaster changes everything and he carries her, screaming, to sleep in the only safe bed in the damaged house – his.

Although she knows he plans to smash her inheritance to pieces, Jetta admits Anton has so far behaved honorably. As she gets to know her handsome housemate better, she wonders if he could be the man she needs to put her crippling fear to rest. Taking courage in both hands, she turns their shaky living arrangement on its head by shyly producing her grandmother’s ancient copy of The Joy of Sex.

But how is Anton entitled to half the house? The unexpected answer makes Jetta flee halfway round the world.

Keywords : New Zealand romance, second chance love, Australia and Oceania, fun and happy, heart-warming, wealthy hero, international love affair, Joy of Sex, New York, traditional timber houses, childhood nightmares, sharing a house, heroic rescue, enemies to lovers, housemates, romance series, sensual, friendship, family life, family relationships, friends with benefits, exotic foreign romance, beach reads.
