Here’s what it’s all about:

Jena Morgan, Atlantic City’s favorite go-go dancer, may have overreacted when she found her boyfriend balls deep in a stripper called Candy. Instead of washing her eyeballs with bleach, she drank a bottle of tequila and bought a house off the internet. A house far away from her cheating, criminal of an ex-boyfriend. A house in Scotland. As soon as she turns up to claim her new home, Jena finds out exactly why you shouldn’t ‘one-click’ houses while falling-down drunk. It was a dump. With no money, and no skills outside of shaking her booty, Jena does the only thing she can do—she throws herself into the biggest DIY project the Highlands have ever seen.

Since Jena’s arrival in town, Officer Matt Donaldson’s workload has tripled. The woman is a menace, gorgeous yes, but definitely a few sandwiches short of a picnic. Her only discernible skill seems to be causing chaos wherever she goes. She attracts trouble like honey attracts bears. Which is why Matt isn’t surprised when her ex-boyfriend turns out to be a member of the New Jersey mob. Although Jena’s ex has come to Scotland to win her back, she wants nothing to do with him—a reaction the mobster does not take well. Overnight, Matt’s job morphs from hunting missing cats and breaking up fights at the old folk’s home, to chasing down the mob and keeping Jena alive. And he’s trying to do it all while remaining professional enough to keep his hands off his sexy, but crazy, American charge.

Rage Won Best Book at the Daphnes!

I’ve just found out that not only did Rage win the Single Title category in the Daphne Du Maurier Awards for Excellence in Mystery and Suspense, but it won best published book overall!!! I am seriously ecstatic. I wish I was celebrating at the RWA awards ceremony in Denver instead of happy-dancing all on my own in New Zealand. But, what an awesome way to brighten up winter! Thanks to everyone who has read Rage already and given me such wonderful feedback. And thanks to the Daphne Du Maurier committee for making my day. ❤

A wounded veteran who lost his purpose when he lost his legs in battle, 
and a single mother who only sees the hero he’s become. 

He’s lost his purpose… 

Callum McKay was an SAS officer when a car bomb took his legs. After his recovery, he became partner in an international security firm – one that dealt with the things governments weren’t able, or willing, to deal with. As far as Callum is concerned, he’s still the same able, competent and commanding guy he was before his accident. And then, he was proven wrong. After a screwed up mission in South America, Callum realized he was no longer an asset to his team. He was a liability. With his purpose and faith in his abilities shattered, Callum turned his back on the security company and returned to the house his grandfather left him in Arness, Scotland. He was no longer fit for action. He was no longer fit for life. He was no use to anyone at all.

…she’s giving it back…whether he wants it or not! 

Single mother Isobel Sinclair has made a lot of stupid decisions in her life. But the dumbest one has to be removing a dead body from the beach outside of her house. She panicked when she saw the dead man and was too scared to call the police, in case they found out her secrets and threw her in jail. Who would look after her kids if she was gone? No, there was no calling the police. That’s why the body ended up in her freezer and she ended going to the most terrifying man in Arness to ask for help. Callum McKay was obviously hiding from the world and clearly didn’t want to get involved with anyone or anything. Unfortunately for him, he wasn’t going to get a choice in the matter – because only Callum could help Isobel now.

B+N: still waiting for them.

And here’s what it’s all about:

She’s an Oscar-nominated actress from a British acting dynasty.
He’s an Atlantic City MMA fighter who grew up on the streets.
Together, they’re each other’s only hope of survival.

When a new and power-hungry cartel nabs Belinda Collins from her sister’s wedding party at an exclusive jungle resort in Peru, John Garcia, a.k.a. Beast, tries to stop the kidnapping–only to be taken himself. The couple are transported deep into the Amazon rainforest and a ransom is demanded. The pair know that as soon as their kidnappers realize Beast isn’t famous, they’ll consider him surplus to requirements and kill him. Their only hope is escape. But with no jungle experience between them, running into the rainforest could be just as deadly as taking their chances with their kidnappers.

With their friends at Benson Security searching for the pair, and the jungle-savvy cartel hunting them down, Beast and Belinda have to work together to get out of the rainforest alive–before someone, or something, ensures they never leave at all.

*** This is an 80,000 word standalone novel with an HEA ***

He’s lost his purpose. She’s giving it back. Whether he wants it or not!

These are the circumstances that led to Isobel Sinclair’s latest stupid decision:
1. She was a teenage mum who (unknowingly!) went on to marry a criminal.
2. She’s now divorced with two kids, a mountain of debt (courtesy of her criminal ex) and a minimum wage job.
3. A loan shark is after her to pay off her ex-husband’s debt, only Isobel doesn’t have any money to give him.
4. Desperation leads Isobel to sell the stolen goods she finds on the beach outside her house, rather than report the find to the police.
5. The people who lost their bounty have returned.
6. This time, they leave behind a body…

At this point, a normal person would call the cops. But Isobel isn’t normal. She’s a single mum, with two kids to feed, and a leery loan shark breathing down her neck. The last thing she needs is the cops sending her to jail for fencing stolen goods. And that’s the reason Isobel makes the stupidest decision of her life so far—she asks the most dangerous man she knows for help to deal with the body.

Callum McKay has hardly been spotted since he moved to the tiny Scottish town of Arness, four months earlier. But rumours about him abound. Some say he was in the Special Forces and received a medical discharge after he stepped on a landmine. Others say he worked for an international security company, but they kicked him out after he got his team killed. Some folk believe he turned rogue and now only works with criminals. And there are those who are convinced he’s a wanted man, hiding from the authorities. Whatever the story, everyone agrees on a few key things: Callum McKay is deadly, volatile and quite possibly suicidal.

He’s also Isobel’s only hope.

Callum is about to learn that you can quit Benson Security, but it doesn’t quit you!
