Two hearts. A second chance. Everything on the line…

West lost Piper years ago. She left their small hometown on an isolated New Zealand island, and he stayed behind. He never forgot her, but then forgetting the one woman who seared his heart and body is no easy feat.

Piper is haunted by the ghosts of her past. As an elite police diver, she finds herself forced back to the one place she’d sworn never to return. She comes face to face with everything she ran from—grief, regret, and the scalding pain of a love lost.

Desire and tempers flare when West and Piper cross paths again. Can Piper wade through the pain of her past to find her way back to the man who broke her heart?

IN TOO DEEP is the first story in Tracey Alvarez’s best-selling Stewart Island books set against the stunning backdrop of Aotearoa, New Zealand. If you like heart-warming, sexy & seductive small-town romances with a touch of humor, you’ll love sharing the journey with these authentic men and women struggling to find their special someone.

They’ll either melt or raze their lives to the ground…

Big, sexy men who don’t relate well to kids need not apply…

Kezia Murphy plays her widow card well. When you don’t trust people not to let you down, it’s easier to not get involved—and getting involved with a man who makes her skin sizzle just by looking at him would be una pazzia—crazy! Four years ago while Kezia’s daughter, Zoe, battled leukaemia, a tragic accident stole her husband’s life. Starting over in the little town of Oban where she’s adopted into the close knit community on Stewart Island, Kezia and her daughter are all the family the other needs. Except Zoe yearns for more.

New Zealand’s worst candidate for instant fatherhood…

Ben doesn’t do gooey emotional stuff.  He doesn’t do cosy home and family. And he sure isn’t the big teddy-bear Kezia Murphy, the woman he secretly fantasises about, thinks he is. So when Jade, his surprise eight-year-old daughter arrives on his doorstep, he’s a D-minus student struggling to pass a crash-course in parenting. When the sparks of attraction between Kezia and Ben fan into an inferno, Ben doesn’t know how much longer the layers of resistance around his heart can resist melting into the gooey mess he fears. The more he fights it the harder it is to make the choice that will destroy the family he now longs to claim.

MELTING INTO YOU is the second story in Tracey Alvarez’s best-selling Stewart Island books set against the stunning backdrop of Aotearoa, New Zealand. If you like heart-warming, sexy & seductive small-town romances with a touch of humor, you’ll love sharing the journey with these authentic men and women struggling to find their special someone.

She shuttered her heart and walked away...
Heading home always stirs up mixed emotions for Laney Calhoun. Twelve years ago she left for graduate school, broken-hearted. She's found professional success, but positive personal relationships have proved elusive. Running into her ex-boyfriend fans flames she thought long extinguished, and causes a renewed interest in love. Not with Kyle, of course. Never again. But as sparks fly and items of clothing disappear, she scrambles to keep her emotions in check.

...Now he has a second chance to get it right.
Kyle Nixon let Laney slip away once. Their chemistry together is undeniable, but steamy sex is not enough to convince her to let him back into her heart. Even if she did trust him again, her medical career is five hundred kilometers away from the hometown that he loves, and the life that he once chose over her.

Come home to Wardham. Come home to love.

What Once Was Perfect is a small town/big city romance between a doctor and a teacher who get a second chance at their first love affair when they are reunited at Christmas. Sexy times occur on both sides of the Canadian and American border, in a one-room school house, a boat and an elevator.

Take a little Miss Perfect. Add a bad-boy chef to the mix. Watch the sparks fly in the kitchen…

 

There’s a fly in sous chef Shaye Harland’s soup. A fly in the form of her brother-in-law to be, a cocky, infuriatingly sexy outsider who muscles in on her kitchen. Del’s gunning for her job and turning her ordered world upside down. If only he didn’t fry her brains with kisses that threaten to burn her resistance to ashes.

 

Winning a spot on a TV reality show is just what Del Westlake needs to repair the trashed reputation he left behind in L.A. Problem is, the film crew that arrives on Stewart Island captures more than cooking when the kitchen chemistry between him and Shaye turns explosive. Can Del keep his secrets, keep his hands off his delectable sous chef, and prevent his bad-boy ways from destroying his shot at being her Mr. Perfect?
