Take one American singer who doesn’t believe in falling in love…

Josh McInnes’ biological clock is ticking and he wants to get married—now. After 20 years singing soppy love songs, he knows that there is no such thing as romantic love. There’s only hormones and lust. At thirty-five, he’s tired of his playboy lifestyle. He wants a wife who isn’t interested in fame, money, or romance. A sensible wife, who values commitment. He wants a partnership, a friendship, and none of the craziness that goes with falling in love. As far as he can see, there’s only one way to get exactly what he wants—he needs an arranged marriage.

…add a Scottish librarian who has given up on ever falling in love…

Caroline Patterson terrifies men. With her no-nonsense attitude, and ice queen demeanour, she’s in control of everything—and everyone—around her. Her sensible shoes and grey skirt suits act like a force field, repelling male attention. At thirty-one, she can’t remember the last time she went on a date and is beginning to think she’ll never have a family of her own. When an American stranger approaches Caroline with a marriage proposal that resembles a business contract, she quickly accepts. She doesn’t expect romance. But she does expect to control each and every detail of their lives together. Because as life has taught her—if you aren’t in control, bad things happen.

…and you get romance Invertary style!

Josh and Caroline learn the hard way that falling in love isn’t something you can avoid. And it definitely isn’t something you can control. Their well laid plans are about to degenerate into chaos, as they fall in love the Scottish way.

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.
