June 12, 2015

Trent Sinclair is a powerful man; like many romance leading men, he carries grudges far longer than most mortals would, and does not forgive or trust anyone easily. Bryn Matthews lied six years ago, and was sent away from the only home she’d ever known with the Sinclairs. Or did she really lie?

May 09, 2015

Jenny Kent is a foundling, a nobody. But she has a friend, one Bella Rossini, who’s been helping her along of late, and they’re the best of pals, even loaning Jenny her name so that Jenny can work at the fabulous Italian-themed Venetian Forum market in her Australian hometown…until they’re in a car crash, and the real Bella is killed, and everyone thinks that she is Bella…

Once for All Time

March 23, 2015

Twice a week for the last three years, nurse Clotilde Collins has worked with the handsome Doctor James Thackery at St Alma’s Hospital, but she’d never dream that he was actually interested in her! Besides, she’s been dating a young surgeon, Bruce Johnson, for some time now, and as soon as he finds the right practice to buy into (he’s very fussy about that; he wants into Sir Oswald’s practice, not some penny ante bunch), her father will give them the money for him to do so, they’ll be wed, and happily ever after, right?

Well, until Clotilde’s parents are killed in a car crash in France…

The Moonshiner

March 18, 2015

Joan Yelland is just sick of it, okay? She’s sick and tired of being the wealthy socialite her mother has raised her up to be. She’s just got to get away for a while, okay? Just a break, really. So she flies from the social whirl of Sydney to her godmother’s home on a cattle station in the north of Australia. Landing in a DC-3, on a dirt strip in the middle of nowhere, the well-turned-out beauty starts an adventure she’ll never forget! On the two-day trek to her godmother’s home, in the company of their cantankerous niece Shelley, she fords a flooded river on horseback, and camps out in the bush overnight, hearing the didgeridoos off in the darkness, and meeting one of the reclusive “moonshiners” when she takes a short walk away from camp in the evening. Arriving at Lantana Station just as a cyclone hits, the adventure is just beginning!

Relentless Protector

March 09, 2015

Then, she sees the two small children that she came to London to meet.
