Kris Pearson
7

Nick Sharpe owns a chain of fitness centers. He has money, ambition, and a body honed to perfection, but he’s just discovered he was adopted and never told. To make matters worse, his P.A. has walked out at short notice. His business and personal lives are suddenly in disarray—and then fate hands him Sammie.
Sammie Sherbourne only needs a temporary job until her passport arrives, then she’s off to see the world. The last thing she wants is to become one of Nick’s many conquests. But Nick’s hot and he’s hurting, and Sammie knows she might hold the key to his identity. That’s a lot of temptation for a girl with a tender heart.
Warning: Contains sexy games in beds, bathrooms, and on balconies.

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.

A passionate and funny romance. Jetta Rivers has inherited 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.

WARNING: Contains one ambitious man with a tender heart and a body to die for. And one most unlikely temptress.

Meet Tony and Ellie - the second of three hot couples from Kris Pearson’s New Zealand Heartlands Series.

In this heart-wrenching holiday romance, a devastating fire ruins school-teacher Ellie McKenna’s rented apartment. She 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.

WARNING: The earth definitely moves – in more ways than one.

 

CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY HEARTS is the second in Kris Pearson’s standalone Heartlands trilogy. Set in the spectacular rural scenery of New Zealand, these novels take you to faraway places where real men and women seek lasting love – sometimes against daunting odds. If you enjoy romance that leaps off the page – funny, furious and feel-good – then download this sizzling hot story now – and be sure to read the other two – MELTING HER HEART and COWBOY WANTS HER HEART. 

 

“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.
