For the Fireworks
Wanted—one tall, dark and handsome gentleman for the fireworks.
Xander Whyte, owner of a superior dating service that provides assets, not escorts, gets a last-minute and almost unintelligible demand for a gentleman for an entire Bonfire Night holiday weekend. Meeting the very specific request with zero notice seems impossible, but one look at Ella Stephens’ photo has Xander determined to take the assignment himself and help out the gorgeous—and tipsy—redheaded damsel in distress.
Meeting Ella in person, Xander’s fascinated by the bundle of contradictions that make up the beautiful London lawyer, not least the way she tries to resist her attraction to him. But can he get her to see him as anything other than a handsome hunk she’s hired, and before the clock ticks down on the weekend?
‘Remember, remember the fifth of November’—Xander and Ella’s Guy Fawkes’ holiday passion lights up the sky!
Winter—spring? No—winter sparks!
Meet Hugo Winter, gorgeous fifty-something all-round perfect gentleman, and Alessa Marks, sexy late-twenties local journalist—and not really an elegant lady. While entrepreneur Hugo is at meetings with city luminaries and pitching venture capital ideas to fellow businessmen, Alessa’s probably chasing a reclusive rock star for an interview or sticking her nose into a local scandal for her column, Sparks, in the Montford Herald.
When an unexpected meeting just before Christmas brings never-the-twain Hugo and Alessa together, sparks combust. But can a winter–spring relationship, particularly one that starts out with passion hot enough to melt snow, really work out? Especially when Hugo’s reluctant to speak about his past, making Alessa determined to ferret out his secrets? Will their love wither in the frost or bloom with the spring?
Sweet Days and Roses
Spring, when a young man’s fancy turns to love…even with his wife?
Luc Ford, a highly focussed, dedicated barrister, is on track to become one of the circuit’s youngest QCs. He’s always been an ‘all work and no play’ type, right from his schooldays, and that’s the way he likes it, ever since his one wild weekend resulted in him marrying in haste…and repenting at great leisure.
Helping his friend Xander by filling in as a hired escort at a charity evening, Luc is stunned to find that the woman who hired him is his wife, Catarina. Wild Cat, that spoilt little rich girl, that green-eyed, raven-haired wild child he met, bedded and wedded all in one weekend…only for her to leave him days later. Cat has grown into an even more beautiful woman, making it harder for Luc to resist her…the woman he’s never stopped loving.
Hope springs eternal, but even a second time around?
Summer When She Smiles
Summer loving, all year long.
On the surface, The Playboy of the Western World isn’t just a production Piers Neale had great success in—it’s the way he lives his life. But he’s not so much love ’em and leave ’em as it’s women loving his so-called ‘glamorous’ lifestyle…and leaving the ordinary, real man underneath. World-weary Piers never expected to fall for any woman, yet a closed-off accountant auditioning for the summer production entranced him at first sight.
Except…Cara wasn’t exactly there about a role in the play. She’s the external auditor appointed by the borough council to evaluate its assets, especially the non-performing kind—one of which is the theatre. The handsome, charismatic Piers simply swept her off her feet. The vulnerability beneath his façade calls to Cara, just as he brings out the long-buried woman in her. But can a true relationship bloom between a couple both wearing disguises? And what will happen when Piers and Cara shed their masks—if they can?
