Some summer loves you can never forget, found in a place where summer never ends…Where you'll discover the essence of the rugged and romantic outback of Australia’s Northern Territory, in this small-town series of Elsie Creek. It's a place filled with more cattle and crocodiles than people—who still manage to find love…


Are you ready to Escape to a HAPPILY EVER AFTER?


After seven-years, creative Mumpreneur, Kathryn (Kat) Jones, returns to the outback town of Elsie Creek at the request of her dying uncle. Kat can’t fix the man but she can care for his wife, fix his home, and fix his beloved vehicle to get him there.


Workaholic, Kyle Smythe, owns the only mechanical workshop in town, and he’s about to propose to another woman when his ex-muse rolls into his yard seeking help to restore her uncle’s ute.


For Kat, Kyle was her best friend, her creative collaborator, and first and only love. But his rejection tore her heart apart.


Kyle’s scars still sting over Kat’s desertion—especially when he’d needed her the most.


Yet these long-lost summer soulmates are compelled to team-up to make a man they both care for happy in his final days.


Can they work together without re-igniting that spark shared those many summers ago? Or will it remind them of their promises of forever that ended in never…

 "When hiding behind the scenes is no longer an option..." 


As an introverted party planner, Emma Toplin’s superpower is to blend. Except on her birthday when she tries to flee the worst public humiliation of her life, but can’t—because someone stole her Parte van. Struggling to shun the media spotlight, prank callers, and her sister, she’s also got a delicious detective on her case who’s a party-favour she doesn’t need. 

Newly promoted detective, Ryan Lewis, always follow orders, and it’s his job to trap the Parte van. Yet working with Emma blurs his lines of professionalism, stirring the battle between his heart and his badge. 

But when an uninvited guest threatens to wrench them apart, past secrets are revealed at a party that could be Emma’s last... 

Unplanned Party is a fun fling, celebrating lives filled with flaws, cocktails, and gallons of glitter. 

It's the perfect blend of drama, romance, friendship, and love; where its characters (and pets) are flawed and funny, making them perfectly relatable to readers who enjoy their heartfelt romance combined in today's women's fiction. 

Here are what some of the readers say in their Five Star reviews from Goodreads and Bookbub: 

“A cast of hilarious characters will make you laugh out loud!” 

“A very entertaining and upbeat crime solving love story from down under.” 

“This book was super good…it kept you wanting to read the book in one sitting.” 

“Love these characters and their screwed up lives!” 

“A thoroughly enjoyable read with a bit of everything…” 

“A terrific read… the descriptions of the characters bring them to life and you have lots of laughs along with them.” 

“This book was good…definitely full of quirky characters.” 

For readers of Bella Andre, New York Times bestselling author Claudia Connor follows up her heartfelt debut, Worth the Fall, with a novel about Matt’s brother, Stephen. When a McKinney brother falls in love, powerful emotion and overwhelming desire are never far behind.
 
Two hearts locked away . . . Hannah Walker spends her days coaching children through injury and trauma, one therapeutic horseback ride at a time. She knows all too well how violence can change a child and leave scars that never heal. It’s easy for her to relate to the kids; what isn’t easy is the thought of facing her own harrowing past.
 
Millionaire playboy Stephen McKinney could use a little coaching himself. Five years ago he encountered his most horrible nightmare—and the nightmare won. No matter what he achieves, nothing can make up for that awful night . . . or so he believes.
 
Both desperate for a second chance . . . Stephen is used to getting what he wants. And he wants Hannah. So when she turns him down, he’s intrigued. What he doesn’t know is that her secrets will lead him to a place he never wanted to go again . . . to a side of himself he’s tried to forget . . . a side that would scare Hannah away from ever loving him. Now his only chance to win her trust is to bare his soul, risking everything he tried so hard to protect.
