A Lot Like Love ……

That’s the title of my latest independently released romance. And it’s available here on Amazon just in time for Valentines Day!


Mark Dennison will do anything to save his daughters life…even if that means reconnecting with the one person he never wants to see again. The woman who killed his wife.

After her twin sister’s death, Catherine McLeod gave up all hope of seeing her young niece ever again. But when Mark rocks up on her doorstep and announces she’s the only one who can save Sophie, she’s prepared to do whatever she can to help. Which doesn’t include falling for the one man she can never have. A man who can never discover her secret promise.

Happy Reading!

Release Day…..The Cattleman’s Proposal

I’m so excited about this book….it’s my first foray into indie publishing and the first book in my  Cattlemans_Proposal_200

The Men Of Mulhany Crossing series.

It’s the story of four men from a small outback town who have been lifelong friends and the women who love them.

The Cattleman’s Proposal is Nate’s story and I simply loved writing this guy. He’s tough and just a little bit arrogant and he certainly meets his match in the spirited heroine.

It’s available exclusively at Amazon

Warm Wishes


Aussie Cover For Date With Destiny….

I just wanted to share the cover for my August release Date With Destiny.

This book is available for pre-order now. DWDAustCover

Date With Destiny received a fabulous 4 1/2 star review from RT Book Reviews ……..

“A near-fatal brush with danger brings Grace Preston back to Australia to heal. Her ice princess mask is firmly in place to hide the vulnerable misfit inside — especially from cop, and first love, Cameron Jakowski. Could there be a chance for them this time around? Lacey’s down-under, second-chance romance is an emotional journey worth taking. Her couple’s road back to love is a bumpy ride but one that’s worth every heart-wrenching moment, and the love scenes are a sensual delight.”

I’m doing a blog tour to celebrate the release which starts on 24th July…. will post dates and places next week!


New Cover…..Date With Destiny

I have a sparkly new cover for my August Harlequin Special Edition release, Date with Destiny…… DWD2

I just love the new look covers and this one really sets the scene for Grace and Cameron’s story.

I’ve had many readers asking me when the ultra cool and closed-off Grace will meet her match and am so happy that she finally gets her happy ending.

And I’m doing a blog tour to celebrate the release of Date with Destiny in August with books and other give-aways so I hope you can join me!

Another Crystal Point book on it’s way . . .

I’m excited to say that a few weeks ago I sold Book 4 in my Crystal Point series.

Out of all the letters and emails I recieved from readers about book 1, Made For Marriage, one of the most often asked questions was – what happens to the girl in the red dress? That girl was Grace Preston – the uber smart and all-business New Yorker who never lets anyone get close. When I first conceived the idea for my Crystal Point series and the characters started to come alive, I always sensed that Grace would be a stand-out character – mostly because she is so seriously flawed. I also knew that Grace would need a special man who could see past her prickles and frosty reserve and to the woman beneath – and right from the very beginning I knew that man would be Cameron Jakowski. The small town cop is a family friend and the one person who has always been able to get under Grace’s super-cool skin.

The book will be released in mid 2013 and hopefully will be followed by a few more in the series. and for those readers who asked when is the free-spirited Mary-Jayne Preston going to meet her mach? Well, I’m working on it and will keep you posted.

Marriage Under The Mistletoe …. Cover!

I have a fabulous new cover for my November release Marriage Under The Mistletoe.

The art department at Harlequin have once again made my day. They have really captured the feel of the book and the characters and I just love the Christmas elements in the picture. It is everything I imagined it would be.

Don’t forget you can pre-order it from Amazon …..

And my January 2013 release, His-And-Hers Family is available for pre-order from Amazon too!



On The Shelf . . .

A couple of days ago I had one of those unforgettable experiences – I got to see my book on the shelves for the first time. Made For Marriage is a June Harlequin Blush release in Australia, after hitting the shelves in the US in January and the UK in March. It was quite a wait since its initial release and when I was out shopping with my sister on Saturday morning we headed for one of the big local chain stores and spotted it. We squeed, hugged and then took a photograph.

Actually, seeing the book on the shelf was all kinds of awesome and I’m so glad my sister was with me to share the moment because she was always one of my strongest supporters during those years when I was writing and submitting and trying to get published.

Of course I’m hoping to have many more books on the shelves . . . but like most ‘firsts’ in life, this one feels extra special.
