Leslie North is the pen name for a critically-acclaimed author of women's contemporary romance and fiction. The anonymity gives her the perfect opportunity to paint with her full artistic palette, especially in the romance and erotic fantasy genres.
The truth of the matter is she loves her fictional persona, Leslie North, more than her normal, day-to-day persona! Her bestselling books focus on strong characters and particularly women who aren't afraid to challenge an alpha male. Inspired after years of travel, her stories are set all over the world, from the tough streets of Russia to the beautiful beaches of the middle east.
Leslie fell in love with romance when she first picked up a scrappy, dog-eared romance book from her local library. She began writing soon after and the rest, as they say, was history. She now lives in a cozy cottage on the British coast and enjoys taking long walks with her two Dalmatians, George and Fergie.

But Stella finds it's just the island that's stunning: the man who owns the resort is gorgeous too. Beautiful and bold, Leonardo is not stranger to bending his wife, but he is looking for a man with a spine of steel swaths of cashmere and gold plated toilets. As the two Romanies have been refinanced properly, they will find their views on each other. If it will turn to dust.compromise is possible or if everything wants to turn to dust.
Billionaire Nicolo Romano is a global citizen. He’s the kind of guy who skis in the Alps, snorkels in the caribbean, and enjoys the lights of the Vegas strip on a whim. He has no desire to be tied down any time soon. So when he and his brothers inherit the family resort, Nicolo has one goal: Sell it and sell it fast. But coming back to the place he loved as a child to find a woman who feels just as passionately about the crumbling hotel throws him. Instead of using his business savvy to sell fast, Nicolo is wooing this woman with his island, slowly falling back in love with the place himself.
When whip smart arguments turn into stolen kisses and stolen kisses turn into steamy nights, Adeline and Nicolo will realize that they’re fighting for more than the fate of a historic hotel. They’re fighting for the chance of life’s greatest adventure: True Love.
Luciana Vivaldi rushed to Italy to care for her after the death of her sister, and then fell in love with the culture and people. Beautiful and whip smart, she's been recruited to keep the Romano Resort's hunky structural engineer focused and to take him to task. She's got a passion for organizing and no time for romance-that's just a kiss following her.
Gianpierre and Luciana do not have time for distractions, but when they come to a fate-and-brisk housing market-leave them living together, their excuses for staying apart as fast as the foundation. The sparkle is more blinding than a sicilian sunset, but when you're in the mood for a lifelong love? Or wants it all fall like a house of cards?
Everything’s going according to plan until Lola Reyes, an innocent first grade teacher, enters the picture unexpectedly, bringing the unwanted attention of her policeman brother. She’s everything Max didn’t think he needed until now—beautiful, caring, and independent—and she’s packing a gun.
When Lola crashes her car at a remote residence, she believes her sexy but secretive rescuer has her best interests at heart. Relief turns to distress when he and his unnerving partner tie her up and refuse to accept her identity.
And after Max learns of a criminal conspiracy involving Baudin, they’re forced to go on the run to keep everyone—including the woman he’s falling for—out of danger. When justice and duty are at odds, he’ll have to choose sides in a game where the stakes are life and death.
