About the author

New Zealander Kris writes sizzling contemporary romance, pure and simple. Well, maybe not that pure! They're mostly 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.

“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.

La cama del constructor de barcos – Más de mil opiniones con cuatro y cinco estrellas en todo el mundo.

Un día de viento... un letrero que sale volando... un golpe terrible. Sophie Calhoun no sabe cómo va a poder pagar los daños causados a un coche tan lujoso. Ya tiene problemas de liquidez y está luchando para lanzar su nuevo estudio de interiorismo y poder traerse a su hija a vivir con ella. Sólo unos pocos días la separan del desastre.

Del elegante Jaguar negro se baja furioso el magnate de los superyates Rafe Severino, echando humo y... guapísimo, buscando desesperadamente un decorador de alto nivel para su espectacular casa nueva junto al puerto.

Sophie teme que el contrato de sus sueños dependa de que ella esté dispuesta a pasar por la cama del constructor de barcos. Por mucho que intente escapar, él siempre está ahí, implacable e irresistible. Sabe que lo que él quiere no es una madre soltera angustiada, pero cada vez resulta más difícil ocultarle la existencia de su hija al hombre del que se está enamorando. Si él descubre sus mentiras, Sophie lo perderá todo al instante.

ATENCIÓN: Contiene un hombre decidido de piel dorada que sabe mucho de barcos, cuerpos y sábanas.
