Serena agrees to meet her brother, Chris, for a quiet drink so why is Jake Andrews, journalist and adventurer, there in the bar with him? Still grieving for Tim, Serena’s not looking for romance. It gets worse when Chris explains that Jake is about to leave for a mission in Africa but needs a doctor, preferably a paediatrician, to accompany him. She is exactly that and she realises she’s been lured into a trap of her brother’s making. He knows she won’t be able to refuse to help when sick and injured children are involved. She’s familiar with the terrain and her new job doesn’t start yet so, reluctantly and thinking of those children, she boards the plane with Jake. He’s not keen on taking her, a beautiful blonde, either, knowing it’s a dangerous, strife-ridden area. Their worst fears are realised when on landing they are surrounded by a group of hostile rebels. The only way Jake can protect her is by claiming they are married and that his ‘wife’ is pregnant…

Pictures in Provence – eBook Published NovemberPix In Provence smx500 2014

The most perilous landscape is hidden in the heart….
When Joanna wanders into a Paris gallery, her fascination with the stunning landscapes of Jean Duval turns to amazement as she discovers one of his portraits contains a familiar face – her own. Why would a famous artist she’s never met paint a picture of a barely-out-of-school concert violinist?

Confusion takes a back seat to her visceral attraction to the gallery’s handsome owner, Gilles Ledoux. A man whose piercing eyes and elegant bearing veil a passion he unleashes behind closed doors.

After a magical night at the opera that ends in a luscious kiss, though, Gilles puts distance between them, literally and figuratively. But when a mishap puts her musical career on hold, suddenly Gilles is back, sweeping her off to recuperate at his estate in Provence.

Once there, mystery clouds what should have been a blissful interlude. Why won’t Gilles introduce her to the artist who lives next door – the one whose paintings fill Gilles’ Paris gallery? Is it jealousy…or something connected to her tragic past?

Storm-Damage cover

 As the power lines come down, the night heats up.

So the Devereau lawyers expect Poppy Winters to quietly vacate the beloved Dorset cottage in which she was born? Not bloody likely. Poppy’s family tree is as firmly planted in Cranford Hall soil as any blue-blooded Devereau, and she will not be moved.

The injured man who crashes into her living room, accompanied by a howling winter storm, shakes her composure to the core. Especially when a power outage forces them to keep each other warm till morning.

But with the dawn comes a shocking realization: he has no memory of the previous night, but he remembers his name. Guy Devereau, the new owner of Cranford Hall. And he’s got a woman – Nerissa – claiming to be his fiancée.

Yet as winter’s chill settles in, Guy slowly and not-so-subtly disturbs her life in every wicked way—her knitwear business, her body, her soul…and her heart.

When she gets off the plane in Austria, she doesn’t expect an overly warm welcome from the relatives she’s never met – distant half-cousins, their connection a youthful affair Kristal’s grandmother had with the von Steinberg patriarch.

The chauffeur and sleek black limo that greets her is quite a surprise. So is the intense, hazel-eyed stare of the man waiting for her in the back. If Rodolfo Wolfgang Gustav von Steinberg thinks six-feet-four of designer-suited muscle will intimidate her, he has another think coming.

Despite Rodolfo’s suspicion regarding her motives, instant attraction flares between them. But the heat of new love is tempered by a very old-world custom, for Rodolfo is promised to another…
