New Book News!

Benson’s Boys Book 3 is up for preorder and will be released on October 3rd! : You’ll find the links below. In the meantime, here’s what it’s about:

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—with money or sex.
4. Seeing as sex will only happen over her dead body, Isobel needs money—desperately.
5. It was this desperation that led Isobel to sell the stolen goods she found on the beach outside her house, rather than report the find to the police.
6. The smugglers who lost their bounty have returned.
7. This time, they left 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 even when you quit Benson Security, the team doesn’t quit you!



My book won the Stiletto award!

Look what I  brought home as a souvenir from the Romance Writers of America conference! Reckless, Benson’s Boys book 1, won the romantic suspense category of the Stiletto competition. I was really shocked to win and very excited that I was actually there to hear my name being called. Not bad for my first ever conference! Now it’s back to getting book three in the series finished… 🙂

Relentless out now!


The second book in the Benson’s Boys security series is out now. Happy reading everybody! 🙂

Every woman needs a warrior at her back


There’s no hiding the fact that Julia Collins has issues.She’s shy to the point of trying to become invisible. She has OCD tendencies–breaking out in hives if she loses control of her environment. She finds it hard to talk to intimidating men, or more accurately, to any men. A fact that makes working as the office manager for Benson Security particularly difficult–the company is made up almost entirely of huge, intimidating,ex-military men. But none of the men affect her the way Joe Barone does. The ex-marine is charming, confident, heroic and so sexy it hurts to look at him. Everything about Joe intimidates Julia. And that’s why, when he declares his interest in her,she does the only sensible thing–she hides.


There’s a limit to how long Joe Barone is going to tolerate Julia hiding. So what if she has a few issues? They don’t detract from her many attributes. She’s gorgeous, smart, generous and kind. Which guy wouldn’t want a woman like that by his side? So when her grandmother gets arrested in South America, Joe sees a perfect opportunity to show Julia how good they’d be together. Julia needs someone to accompany her to Peru, someone who speaks Spanish and who doesn’t crumble in the face of authority. Julia needs Joe.


But when they get to Lima, they discover things are much worse than they were led to believe. With danger at every turn and lives on the line, Julia is forced to get past her issues and trust in Joe–her life depends on it.


Caught OUT NOW!

Caught is live! Thank you to everyone who already ordered a copy – I hope you enjoy it. 🙂



He wants forever. She just wants his body. Neither of them want to give in.

Mitch Harris has it all. As a successful music manager, who isn’t hard to look at, he has women falling at his feet. And that’s just the way he likes it. For years he’s laughed as, one by one, his buddies have found their women and settled down. He vowed it would never happen to him. Until he sets eyes on the owner of the town’s new spa. Jodie Miller is everything Mitch didn’t think he wanted, but now desperately needs. She’s tough, wicked,  smart and so damn sexy it hurts to look at her. Mitch isn’t sure if it’s love at first sight, or just plain lust. All he knows is that Jodie is the woman for him and he’ll do anything, and everything, to make her see that they are meant to be together.

Jodie Miller was inoculated against relationships when she divorced her ex. She learned the hard way that men might say they like strong, independent women, but in reality they’d rather tie themselves to someone who couldn’t kick their ass. As a martial arts expert, spa owner and proud feminist (she’s got the T-shirt to prove it), Jodie plans to pour her energy into her business instead of another relationship. She’s happy to let Mitch play the part of her sex toy—after all, she isn’t dead and he’s hot as hell—but there’s no way she’s giving him her heart. No matter how dirty he plays to get it.

***** This book comes with a bonus short story—Invertary, the finale. *****


first in a new series!

It’s out! The first book in my new series set around the London office of Benson Security. Scroll down for an excerpt! 😀




About Reckless

The new London office of Benson Security hasn’t even opened its doors yet and already it’s neck deep in its first case…

If the mission doesn’t kill him, his sexy partner just might.

Dimitri Raast and Megan Donaldson have a common enemy—the head of an organisation that specializes in human trafficking and sexual slavery.

They have similar motivation—Dimitri’s sister was taken by the organisation, and Megan’s sister is threatened by it.

They have the same goal—eliminate their enemy and save their sisters.

Given they have so much in common, you would think working together would be a piece of cake.

You would be wrong.

While Dimitri brings skills and experience from years as a US Army Ranger to their partnership, Megan brings a background in failed career choices and an ability to cause trouble wherever she goes. Yet, even with so much at stake, Dimitri can’t resist Megan’s particular brand of crazy. She’s wild, she’s sexy and she’s fearless. An irresistible combination for a man who lives his life completely in control. Now, after almost a year with one all-consuming focus, Dimitri finds himself torn between rescuing his sister and protecting the woman he wants – from herself.

Before she gets them both killed.

The one with Kirsty’s wedding…

Here Comes The Rainne Again is the latest Invertary book. It’s the one where Kirsty gets married to Lake (maybe!) and where Rainne gets together with Alastair (possibly!). 🙂


Kirsty has planned the perfect Leap Day wedding.
And it’s all falling apart…
The Scottish Highlands are in the middle of the worst snow storm in decades. Cell towers are down, electricity is out and roads are closed.  In true Invertary style the town’s folk have decided to ignore the weather and carry on with the party. Kirsty is at the castle, in the middle of her hen-night and having second thoughts about the wedding. Lake is enduring his stag-do at the town’s only pub, helpfully organised by his ‘best man’ eighty-nine year old Betty. Rainne, Lake’s sister, has come back to town after three years away to not only attend the wedding, but to see if Alastair will give her a second chance to love him. Oh yeah, and a whole bunch of men with guns have surrounded the castle!

The castle is under siege. The town is under snow. The men are stuck at the pub and the women are on their own. With emotions running high, snow falling hard and lives on the line, the residents of Invertary are about to stage the wedding of the century.

PLEASE NOTE: Unlike the rest of the books in my Invertary series, this one isn’t a standalone novel. Here Comes The Rainne Again follows up on the characters in the first book in the series—Lingerie Wars. Because of this, I recommend that you read Lingerie Wars before Here Comes The Rainne Again, otherwise you might get a bit lost—and we don’t want that. 🙂



An interview with Betty

The Invertary Standard has interviewed Betty as part of their personality of the week series. If you want to read what she has to say, then there’s a copy of the interview on my blog. 😀 You’ll also find out more of what Betty’s been up to recently in Here Comes The Rainne Again  and Caught (out Dec 24).
