Kris Pearson

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?  

SUMMER SPARKS is sexy, funny and heart-warming, and is intended for mature readers.

Can true love ever bloom from a start like this? Shy heiress Alfrieda Hamlin is reduced to shocked silence when her hateful grandfather announces she’s to marry within a month – to a cowboy she’s never met. There’s no way she’ll give her body to a stranger, or have her expected freedom and inheritance stolen away!

Alfie might be shy but she’s no pushover. When she learns more about the succession deal hatched between her autocratic grandfather and the handsome Texan stud, she vows to beat her new enemy at his own game.

Exiled for half his life, hard-living Rory Morrissey has been offered a deal: quit the ranch in Texas, return to his New Zealand birthplace, and embark on the delicate mission of convincing Alfie to take him as her husband. This will earn him a fresh start, respectability, and the chance of owning a farm beyond his wildest dreams. 

Rory has nothing to lose by accepting the challenge. The girl could be bearable. Perhaps they can outwit the old man and split things amicably? Maybe hell will freeze over first, but this hunky cowboy is determined to ride down his heiress and bundle her into his bed.

Ellie McKenna urgently needs a temporary home and a few weeks’ work to get her life back on track. A short term Christmas contract tutoring twin daughters on a huge coastal farm sounds ideal – until, too late, she meets the billionaire owner.

Ellie’s dream job turns into her worst nightmare once she discovers the man she’ll be working for is her long-ago holiday fling. He gave her the hottest memories of her life – and a son he knows nothing about. Now she’s trapped on beautiful Wharemoana Estate, torn away from her wonderful boy while she tries to resist his still-so-tempting father. 

Tony Robinson is grieving and guilt-stricken after the slow death of his unsuitable wife. He’s shocked to see the temporary teacher is the beautiful holiday lover he’s never forgotten… that he’s been given a second chance to romance the woman he should never have lost touch with. To his displeasure he finds that although their fierce attraction still rages red-hot, she’s determined to keep him out of her life.

Ellie fights him any way she can, but Tony is so much more of a man now – and could undoubtedly steal Callum away with his wealth and power. She knows he’d love a son after having two daughters. An older son who’s the absolute image of him. Concealing her secret baby’s existence gets harder and harder as the long summer days grind by.
