On the shelf...
Jessica Pennington's work as an etiquette coach requires her to be polite and proper at all times, especially now that she has a book coming out. The only thing that rattles her reserve is the increasingly violent emails and texts from her persistent stalker. Noah Samuels hates stuck-up, prim people like Jessica. He's more the blunt, straightforward type. But to advance up the ranks at McCormack Security, he has to take the high-profile assignment.
Can these two put their differences aside in time to catch a lethal stalker - before it's too late?
Librarian Maggie Kincaid yearns for excitement—but being accused of espionage is not what she had in mind. Wanted by the police, the FBI and the criminal element, Maggie goes on the run—and runs straight into sexy Luke Fletcher. Unfortunately, when Luke pulls out the handcuffs, it's not because he has something kinky in mind...
Devastated by Luke's inability to trust her, Maggie runs again. She's determined to clear her name, and if that means tracking down a notorious spy even Interpol can't seem to locate, then that's exactly what she'll do...
Recuperating from a skateboarding accident, Indie has discovered that spying on neighbours with a telescope is a good way to pass the time - until she witnesses a violent act. Now her sexy neighbour is the only thing standing between her and ruthless thugs determined to keep their secret...
For those in the Northern Hemisphere, spring has...sprung. For those in the Southern Hemisphere, we're saying good-bye (sniff) to daylight savings and looking down the barrel of cold, dark (sometimes rainy) evenings at whatever sport training you're involved in. Either way, it's a good time to find a good book and get reading.
April is another busy month (is there ever a chill-out month, if so, please share). I'm very fortunate (happy, excited, delirious, etc) to announce the release of my second novella, Stormswept, in the Bold and Beautiful romance series released by Pan Macmillan and Momentum Books. This book looks at the very complex relationship of Hope and Oliver, with a theme of forgiveness and friendship, and it was a pleasure to write! If you like to read from a device, you can find the Kindle version here, or else it's available in print at all good bookstores and retailers (Oz only).
Otherwise I'm working on a few projects, with announcements coming shortly, so come back and visit often!
Take care, be kind to one another - and keep reading!
Melanie wants to get incriminating information on her evil stepfather and she’ll get it – even if it means giving in to an odious toad’s demands. Cole is undercover, and when the opportunity arises for him to get closer to the criminal he’s investigating using the man’s beautiful stepdaughter, he grabs it.
Esmerelda is a Fairy Godmother Enforcer with a partner, and Rumpelstiltskin – with his sexy bad boy swagger – has a hidden agenda of his own.
Shannon is honoured to be judging in the 2013 Orange Rose Contest for the Orange County Chapter RWA.
FOR HER EYES ONLY
Ryan Brennan has worked plenty of jobs for the McCormack Security Agency, so going undercover at a couples resort to identify a pair of killers should be easy. Except his assigned partner—uh, "wife"—is Vicky Hastings.
Finally out from behind her desk, Vicky can't wait to prove herself in the field. But with Ryan? Working together while sharing close quarters certainly isn't making it easy for her to stop thinking about him.
The two have to work together to wrap up this case fast, before more than hearts get broken.
In a bold and innovative move, Pan Macmillan and Momentum have teamed up with the most popular daytime TV soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, to produce a series of novellas based on the characters we all know and love. Digital copies are available worldwide, print copies available only in Australia at present.
THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL: COLLISION COURSE
