Here’s the cover to my latest book, ‘All That Glitters’, Book 2 in the ‘Italian Summer Series’. This is Andrea’s story and is a standalone  book. I’m expecting to release it sometime in the first week of October.

I have changed the covers to my Honeymoon Books!

I love them. I love the colors and the images. But I’m biased ;-)

What do you think?

The covers will slowly update at the retailers. I’m busy with the final touches to Book 2 of the ‘Italian Summer Series’. It is called  ’All That Glitters’ and I’ll do a cover reveal tomorrow and a 1st chapter excerpt for my newsletter subscribers.

In the meantime I just wanted to share the new Honeymoon covers with you (did I tell you that I absolutely love them?)

It’s finally out! ‘It Takes Two’ the first book in the ‘Italian Summer‘ Series, is now available on Amazon.

This is Rona’s story. If you’ve read the ‘Honeymoon Series‘ you’ll have already come across Rona who is Ava’s sister. The ‘Italian Summer’ Series is a spin-off from the ‘Honeymoon Series’ and these books take place after the end of ‘Honeymoon Blues‘ (but do not go as far as the epilogue in that book).


‘It Takes Two’ is available on Amazon and is also in Kindle Unlimited:

I hope you enjoy this book. Andrea’s story will be next, followed by Gina’s. I would like to release Book 4 of the Honeymoon Series sometime around Nov/Dec 2015. I’ll keep you posted.

Happy reading!




I’m thrilled to share my new cover with you!

This is the first book in the Italian Summer Series, and It Takes Two is Rona’s story. It is set in Verona :-)

The Italian Summer Series starts soon after the end of Honeymoon Blues (it doesn’t go as far as the epilogue in Honeymoon Blues).  Rona’s story leads up to a week before Nico and Ava’s wedding.

The rest of the books in this series: Andrea, Gina and possibly Elsa’s stories will all be based around the time of ‘the wedding’ and will cover a few months before and after.

I’ll cover ‘the wedding’ in Book 4 of the Honeymoon series.



This series is a spin-off from the Honeymoon Series and the books will be standalone. Andrea’s story takes up two books: All That Glitters and Fool’s Gold.

While it isn’t necessary to have read the Honeymoon books, the two series are connected and there is overlap. Therefore, if you don’t want any spoilers, there is a recommended reading order. 

The first book, It Takes Two, is Rona’s story and subsequent books will be about Andrea, Gina and Elsa. You will also hear from your favorites in here: Ava and Nico.


Here it is! The cover to my latest book, Embracing Love. This is Tanya’s story and I’m hoping to release the book in a few days’ time.



This is the third and final book in the Tainted Love Series. You might recall that Tanya Braun left San Francisco to work in Europe for a year. Her story takes place in Paris.

Ethan and Nadine, and some other familiar faces from the Perfect Match books also make an appearance here.

I often get asked by my readers to recommend books that are similar to mine – particularly clean-ish books.  While most of my books are clean, I’ll include a few steamy scenes only if I think they are appropriate. So I’m not squeaky, squeaky clean :-)

But, to answer the question I asked my newsletter subscribers and the list below contains their replies. Please note there might be some levels of heat in these books and I suggest you check each author’s works on Amazon or elsewhere.

and to this list I’d like to add the book that made me try my hand at writing romance (up until then I’d been writing about Zombies):
To Be Sung Underwater by Tom McNeal

I read it once and cried. Like, bawled my eyes out. Then I read it again and bawled my eyes out again . I was so immersed into the story, I couldn’t let the characters out of my head for weeks. I wanted to write like Tom McNeal when I grew up…

His writing is lyrical, poetic, beautiful and it swept me away.  I have a long way to go before I get there, but when I wrote my first romance novella, Love, Inc, where do you think my hero, Wayne Blunt, got his name from?

Please feel free to email me with your recommendations and I’ll add them to the list.

It’s out!

Reclaiming Love is currently available on Amazon, though it will start appearing at other retailers during the next few days and I will post the links as and when I get them.

Reclaiming Love is Book 2 of the Tainted Love Series, which are standalone books based on characters from the Perfect Match Series.

This post will explain the timelines of both books.

I must let you know that Reclaiming Love is a little darker than my previous books. However, as with all of my stories my characters survive and become stronger knowing that in time and with faith, things will work out.

I hope you enjoy this one!



I wrote the Tainted Love Series of books to tell you what was going on in the lives of Zoe, Melissa and Tanya as Ethan and Nadine’s story unraveled in the Perfect Match Series.

Consequently, the timelines for the books are often in parallel with some of the events that take place in The Proposal, Lost In Solo, Heart Sync and A Leap of Faith and you’ll get occasional appearances from Ethan and Nadine and a few of the other characters from the Perfect Match Books.

Misplaced Love is Zoe’s story and it takes place just after the end of Heart Sync, though Zoe has made an appearance in a few scenes prior to Misplaced Love. In the Perfect Match books she is Billy’s girlfriend, and shares an apartment with Billy and his friend Ethan.  There is a scene in Misplaced Love which is also told from another point of view, in A Leap of Faith. Tyler makes a brief appearance in Lost In Solo, on Ethan’s 30th birthday when Ethan goes out with Billy and Zoe and meets some friends in Rocco’s.  Tyler is one of those friends and he is currently working as a male escort. He tells Ethan how easy it is to earn good money by doing what he does.



Reclaiming Love is Melissa’s story. Melissa is Nadine’s loyal and hard-working secretary. She meets Matt during the summer, in Lost In Solo, when he fixes an IT issue for her and Nadine. Reclaiming Love starts a few months later, in December, just after Nadine comes back from her month in Europe (in Heart Sync). Melissa’s story ends just as Nadine is trying to decide whether to give up Ethan, or to turn down her chance to work abroad for a year.

The Tainted Love books are a little darker than the Perfect Match Series and Reclaiming Love is the darkest of them all.


Embracing Love, the third book and final book, is Tanya’s story. Tanya first appeared in The Proposal when she interviewed Nadine for a job at the Zimmerman Group. Nadine later went on to replace Tanya in her role. Embracing Love takes place shortly after A Leap of Faith when Tanya relocates to Paris. She’s escaping San Francisco in the hopes of rebuilding her life and of course she’s given up on love altogether.

Because this is the last book in the series, you’ll get a glimpse of Ethan and Nadine and other characters from the Perfect Match books. For those readers who are familiar with Sandra Donnelly (if you’ve read the Perfect Match Series) please click here for a free bonus chapter on Sandra’s story.



The book is back! Needs a little tweaking. I’m hoping to have it out within the next 10 days. Watch this space ;-)

This is a draft cover but I couldn’t wait to show it to you :-)

Reclaiming Love is Melissa’s story…
