Welcome to the new world. Things have changed just a bit. Big Brother’s not only watching you, he now has direct access to everything you see—thanks to the mandatory implant you get at birth. And Friday Jones has seen something she wishes she hadn’t. Something the authorities badly want.

With everyone out to kill her or steal her secrets, Friday turns to an outlaw and mercenary for help. One who has secrets of his own. Striker’s special abilities have kept him in the shadows for a reason, which means stepping into the spotlight aimed at Friday could get them both killed. But Friday Jones calls to the wildness in Striker, making her a hard woman to resist—and the only woman who could ultimately save him.

Rage

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.

Ransom

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 rain forest 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 rain forest 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 rain forest alive—before someone, or something, ensures they never leave at all.

Relentless Sneak Peak

Reckless

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.

READ EXCERPT

 

Can’t Stop The Feeling

The local branch of the Scottish Women’s Institute want to use Kintyre Mansion to hold their annual fundraising ball. There’s only one problem—its owner.

Duncan Stewart is a young widower, still reeling from grief two years after losing his wife, and making the town suffer while he does it. The artist doesn’t paint anymore—he’s become a bad-tempered recluse. The only person he can tolerate for any length of time is his housekeeper—whom he feels overly protective toward, in a professional sort of way…mostly. It seems his grief is coming to an end, and the only woman who interests him in the slightest is the one who’s off limits. The one who works for him. And, the one who’s very much up to something…

Donna Sinclair, the mansion’s housekeeper, is well known for her three weaknesses: being a sucker for a good sob story, an injured animal and a lost soul. And there are days when her boss is all three—and it makes him a little cranky. Which is why she hasn’t told him that she’s given the Women’s Institute permission to hold their fundraising ball at the mansion. Now all she needs to do is get him out of the building for the weekend of the party. There’s only one problem with her plan—Duncan is practically a hermit and has barely set foot out of the mansion since his wife died.

But Donna has a secret weapon on her side—her crazy sisters who would do just about anything to help her out!

Can’t Tie Me Down

There aren’t many jobs available in the tiny village of Arness, Scotland, which is why Mairi Sinclair works online—as a virtual girlfriend. For a weekly fee, she emails, messages and sends photos to desk-bound geeks around the world. Nothing dodgy, mind you, she keeps her clothes on! Mairi loves her job, because the last thing she wants is to be tied down to one man forever. Life is so much simpler when you can keep men at a distance.

And that’s why she’s upset when her virtual boyfriends start turning up in town. Someone has hacked her online presence and given out her real life address. To make matters worse, they’ve told the world that she’s looking for a husband and the first virtual boyfriend to romance her properly will win the role in real life. Mairi needs help to fend off the hordes. She needs help to hide and find out who sold out her details. Fortunately, local mechanic and one time boyfriend, Keir McKenzie, is more than willing to help her—for a price. He too wants a chance to win Mairi’s heart and tie her down forever.

Caught

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.

Here comes the Rainne Again

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. 🙂 Lucky for you, Lingerie Wars is currently free to download! Happy reading!

Calamity Jena

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.

This is book 4 in the Invertary series, but can be read as a standalone novel.
