Against Her Rules - small

In Against Her Rules, Elsie Walsh had it all. Or so she thought. Until Scottish hunk Campbell Scott showed up on the doorstep of her bed and breakfast. He’s making it pretty hard for her to stand by her one rule: No sleeping with the guests. She’s denied some of the world’s hottest actors, musicians, and even royals . . . but how can she keep Cam out of her bed, when he’s invaded her head and her heart?

Campbell Scott went to the wilds of Newfoundland with one thing on his mind: sketch some birds, and then get back to his playboy lifestyle in London. But one look at his sexy hostess and there’s a whole lot more in the air than seabirds. Rejection isn’t part of his vocabulary, and Cam sets out to not only convince Elsie that he belongs in her bed, but by her side at the Heart’s Ease Inn.

Hard as Ice

In Hard as Ice, the first time Daphne Scott met hunky hockey superstar Jack Walsh, she was hungover and more than a little irritable. Still, it was hard to deny that he was hotter than Adonis—even if he did know it.

The second time Jack met the sexy Scottish beauty Daphne, he had a concussion and wanted nothing more than to get home to Heart’s Ease so he could recover. He didn’t expect the ice queen to become his best medicine.

A whirlwind romance at the Heart’s Ease Inn seems like the best prescription for them both. Until the real world creeps in, forcing them to learn that making a long-distance relationship work is harder than either imagined. When their careers threaten to put half a world between them, they must make a choice. Have they taken on a task harder than the very ice he skates on?

Play Me

In Play Me, when sparks fly between sultry lawyer Fiona Nolan and sexy folksinger Dillon O’Dea, little do they know that they’re about to turn a long simmering family feud into an all-out scorcher.

From the moment she sets eyes on Dillon, Fiona knows that she’s willing to play for keeps, even if it means upsetting her family. And when she takes on a case to defend one of her family’s enemies, will Heart’s Ease ever be the same idyllic escape?

Together, Dillon and Fiona fight back against one of the oldest conflicts in Heart’s Ease history, relying on the power of family and music to bring harmony back to the town.

21st Century Rake

In 21st Century Rake, Rock superstar Asher Corbin is back in Heart’s Ease. And he’s not alone. This time he’s brought the entire cast and crew for his upcoming film debut to the small town for a retreat back in time to the Regency period.

Grace Nolan is thrilled to go to an honest-to-goodness Regency ball. But there she finds herself at the mercy of her deepest fantasy: a scandalous rake fresh out of the pages of her favourite historical romances.

When Grace claims not to recognize the dashing celebrity, Asher seizes the opportunity to step out of his persona and explore life out of the spotlight. But when she finds out his secret, her response plunges them into a game of seduction neither had expected to find.

Wilful Desire

In Wilful Desire, Will Walsh is a terrific sailor. And a terrible ex. Just ask Mae Mercer, the woman he left behind when a too-good-to-refuse promotion to the elite ranks of the Navy came on the eve of their wedding.

Will might be a force of nature when he’s hunting down pirates and drug dealers, but that’s nothing compared to the way he capsizes Mae’s world when he returns home to Heart’s Ease. On a mission to reclaim her heart, he knows that failure isn’t an option. But this time, he might have to concede defeat: the only thing stronger than his desire to claim her is Mae’s desire to preserve her freedom.

Can Mae resist the temptation to jump into this very able-bodied seaman’s open arms? Or will his wilful desire win out?

Forthcoming in October, 2017

Christmas in the Harbour

In Christmas in the Harbour, there’s no place like home for the holidays . . . unless Old Man Winter has other plans.

Hannah Nolan loves to loathe her devil-may-care roommate. Or maybe she loathes her love of him. Whatever it is, she’s had enough. It’s a good thing Christmas is here. She’s heading home to spend the holidays with her family in the small town of Heart’s Ease and figure out her life.

Toby Sweeney doesn’t have time for love. The handsome owner of an Irish pub, and one of St. John’s most sought-after bachelors, wants nothing more from the Christmas break than to be alone, drink beer, and watch hockey. And maybe figure out how to get his problematic lust for his roommate under control.

If living under the same roof can’t bring them together, perhaps Mother Nature and a good helping of Christmas magic will do the trick.
