A woman with a fourteen-year secret. A man with a harrowing past.

Jason’s dreams were ruthlessly crushed by his alcoholic father, but he’s finally become the man he always hoped to be – the strong, focussed boss of his own construction company. Now, uptight interfering Anna Wynn is threatening to turn his life upside down.

Anna has arrived at the idyllic beach house to prepare for her wealthy family’s Christmas vacation. Big tough Jason Jones is right in the way – even in the bed she intended claiming as her own. She vows not to let this infuriating tower of testosterone upset her careful plans, but his rippling body and huge tattoo are hard to ignore. 

Soon her closed-off heart is under siege from a man determined to break through her reserve. Enemies become lovers, but when her secret is revealed and her life is in tatters, will he be willing to pick up the pieces?  

HARD TO REGRET is sexy, funny and heart-warming, and is intended for mature readers.

About the author

 

New Zealander Kris writes sizzling contemporary romance, pure and simple. Well, maybe not that pure! They're sexy stories about couples who fall in love, and into bed along the way, just like real people do.

If it's fine, she gardens. If it's wet, she writes. And if the writing's going well, the garden can look after itself. She's an advertising copywriter and a decor specialist, and the author of 'The Boat Builder's Bed', of which more than two million were downloaded free. Giving away this taste of her work kick-started sales of all her other novels.

Her Heartlands series follows the girls who live deep in the New Zealand countryside. Her seven Wellington books are set in the capital city so she can make use of the beautiful harbor in the plots. She has also published two Sheikh novels, a Christmas novella, and a book of nineteen short romantic stories. She’s now writing the Scarlet Bay series – the first title published is Hard to Regret.

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.
