I’m currently writing a Christmas book, set in Scotland in December, but while I’m not at my desk, I’m out in the water playing with my gorgeous new kayak, Zippy. Therefore I’m swapping from snow to surf, hour by hour. It’s discombobulating but it’s fun. Come December watch out for my sexy Scottish Laird in a title yet to be decided (watch this space). He’s gorgeous, especially when he’s wearing his kilt. I’m really enjoying the kilt. I wonder how one would look in a kayak?
Gold Coast Angels is a new medical romance series to be launched in October. The Angles are a dedicated team of young medics, whose every thought must surely be tuned to the medicine they live and breathe. But we’ve nobly allowed them some down time. We’ve thrown in a little surf, plus a touch of intrigue and drama, and we’ve definitely included romance. A lot of romance.
Four dedicated Aussie authors have thus had a wonderful time playing on the Gold Coast, researching everything we needed to bring you four fantastic romances. Watch for my launch title in October: A Doctor’s Redemption.

Last year I completed a fabulous journey through the Australian Outback and across the coast of our Far North Kimberley Region. Of course my imagination came with me - producing two sisters, a dog in hiding, an outback train, a cruise ship to die for - and of course two fabulous heroes. Her Outback Rescuer and A Bride for the Maverick Millionaire are my travel diary - sort of :-)
I'm also proud to announce that I've been nominated for the 2012 Australian Romance Writers Romance of the Year Award.
The brooding banker and the Amazing Miss Mischka!
Banker Mathew Bond is more used to boardroom antics than circus ones. The king of emotional detachment wouldn't normally foreclose on a loan in person, but Sparkles Circus meant a lot to him once….
Big mistake! Because feisty Allie (aka the Amazing Mischka) has more acumen than her pink-spangled bodysuit suggests. She won't allow a man in a suit to evict her family, no matter how gorgeous he is!
Yet underneath the cold exterior, Allie's about to discover this brooding billionaire's heart of gold.…
Rachel Cotton has high hopes for her cruise through the beautiful Kimberley region—surely this will be the perfect chance to forget her past and enjoy some much-needed rest and relaxation? But gorgeous shipmate Finn Kinnard seems much more interested in stirring her up!
Finn might make Rachel feel all woman, but he also warns her that romantically he can't be relied on. But when a high-octane adventure puts this claim to the test, Rachel discovers there's much more to Finn than meets the eye—and that he might be just the man to entrust her fragile heart to.…
