Fireworks from the moment they meet… Lawyer Josslyn Wynn secretly yearns for a husband and family, but a shocking accident made children impossible, and her sharp manner and workaholic lifestyle make landing a man unlikely. When Cameron Mackay ran out on Jossy’s pregnant housemate, Jossy fought for a protection order to prevent him from seeing his son. She couldn’t forgive him for throwing away something she wanted so deeply herself but could never have. 

Because Cam was the opposing client in the court case, she should have nothing to do with him, but when they meet at a dinner party, his knowing grin and sexy suggestions scrape over her soul like sandpaper and she finds him impossible to ignore.

It sticks in Cam’s gut to be forced to play nice with the bitter, beautiful lawyer, but soon he sees he must re-assess everything he assumed about her, and everything he thought he wanted in his own casual, free-wheeling life.

Can Cam save Jossy? Or will Jossy save Cam?

About the author

New Zealander Kris Pearson was born to write - at twelve she completed her autobiography – an easy subject which required no research. It filled a whole school exercise book! 

Her first proper job was as a radio copywriter. After living in Italy and London she returned to the capital city of Wellington and worked in TV, radio again, several advertising agencies, and then spent many happy years as a retail ad manager. Totally hooked on fabrics, she followed this by going into business with her husband as a curtain installer. It was finally time to write fiction. In sixteen years she hasn’t fallen off her ladder once through drifting off into romantic dreams.

She writes sizzling contemporary romance, pure and simple. Well, maybe not that pure! They're sexy stories about modern couples who fall in love and into bed along the way, just like real people do. She’s the author of fourteen novels, three of which were finalists in New Zealand’s Clendon Award. Four have been translated into Spanish.

The most widely distributed is 'The Boat Builder's Bed'. She gave away more than two million ebook copies of this to kick-start sales of all her others. Did it work? Beyond her wildest dreams. See them all on her website - http://www.krispearson.com

Read the first full-length standalone New Zealand romances from Kris Pearson’s Wellington, Heartlands and Sheikhs Series. Once you’ve finished these heart-and-soul filled stories you’ll find plenty more to enjoy by this superb storyteller.

The Boat Builder’s Bed

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 to complete his lonely new mansion with its million-dollar views and return his life to normality. He 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. A heart-warming story of family, love, loss, dangerous currents, and maybe love regained.

 

Melting His Heart

Kate Pleasance needs to flee her home city of Auckland and create a new life away from family stress and infidelity. Might the advertisement seeking a ‘Superwoman’ be her answer? Short-listed, she’s flown to the vibrant alpine resort of Queenstown at her prospective employer’s expense. Snow is dusting the mountain tops as the jet glides in, and she’s shocked to be collected by tall, dark internet billionaire, Matthew McLeod. Where is the woman she spoke with on the phone? 

After a disastrous first marriage, Matthew has lived in a freezing void. He’s buried himself in his work to keep the demons at bay, but now there’s a potent new threat tearing at his resolve. Job-seeker Kate is dragging his ruthlessly supressed emotions back to the surface. Temptation he’s easily shrugged off in the past now eats him alive. Can he persuade her to stay long enough to fan the smouldering sparks between them until they burst into white-hot flames?

 

Taken by the Sheikh

First in the Sheikhs of Al Sounam series - exciting hot romps in the desert.

'I want this girl. I want her willing. I’d kill the others to stop them sharing her and then discarding her. I’ll teach this little blonde foreigner everything about obedience and the rewards that follow. Keep her safe for me. Until it’s time to send her home.'

Laurel is the wrong hostage in the wrong place at just the right terrifying time. This exciting story has Sheikh Rafiq working undercover against dangerous terrorists. His prize is the innocent kiwi nanny, Laurel, but how long can she stay that way with a powerful man like the Sheikh? This different and delicious sheikh romance is Kris Pearson's all-time best seller. Her passionate sheikh is a man to fall deeply in love with.

“I want this girl. I want her willing. I’d kill the others to stop them sharing her and then discarding her in the desert. I’ll teach this little blonde foreigner everything about obedience and the rewards that follow. Keep her safe for me. Until it’s time to send her home.”

An exciting hot romp in the desert. Laurel de Courcey is captured by terrorists, chained up in a disgusting bunker, and videoed for a ransom demand which is shown worldwide. Ooops - wrong hostage! Who'd expect a shy Kiwi nanny to be worth anything?


Laurel's soon tied up in sexy Sheikh Rafiq's bed instead, because he rescues her and appoints himself her personal bodyguard. Very personal. But she has good reason to distrust men.
Imprisoned in his old royal hunting lodge deep in the desert 'for her own protection', Laurel rebels. Spectacular fireworks, dangerous escape attempts, and an impossible love affair follow. This different and delicious sheikh romance is Kris Pearson's all-time best seller. Her passionate sheikh in this love story is a man to fall deeply in love with. If you enjoy this one, look for 'Desired by the Sheikh', too.

Warning: contains one red-hot Sheikh with a wicked tongue and unlimited stamina.

All Kris’s books can be read as standalones, and there are no cliff-hangers. You can read the stories in any order. If you would like to know when the next book is published, please go to krispearson.com and sign up for the newsletter.
