My new romantic suspense novel – out today!

By Her Side largeI knew it was due out soon, but today’s release date for my new romantic suspense novel has taken me by suprise – I thought it was out next week.

Here it is: By Her Side. 

She would trust him with her life. But can either of them trust their hearts?

Rory Sutton Whitfield isn’t a princess, even though her wealthy family insists on treating her like one. Fresh from her travels and finally achieving the independence she craves, the last thing she wants is to become swept up in family problems. But her half-brother has disappeared and her grandfather insists on hiring a bodyguard for her. Rory won’t be controlled by anyone, especially not a taciturn detective like Vince Maroney, a man of few words who nonetheless arouses disturbing emotions.

Vince Maroney has learned his lesson about playing the hero; he stepped up once and it cost him everything. But when he saves the granddaughter of one of Sydney’s wealthiest men, he finds himself embroiled in events beyond his control. Rory is beautiful, smart, independent. But her family is all secrets and lies, money papered over injustices. Rory makes him feel things he thought long dead, but the pains of the past create distance, and she comes from a completely different world. How can one of Sydney’s pampered princesses ever find common ground with her reluctant bodyguard?

I’d love to know what you think of the cover.


Snowy River Man – $0.99 Mother’s Day special

Snowy River Man is currently on sale from Amazon Kindle Australia for only $0.99 – a special discount for Mother’s Day.

If you don’t already have a copy, I hope you’ll take advantage of this special. Or maybe your Mum would enjoy it as a gift? My mum read it on an iPad I loaned her a few weeks ago, and she loved it – and she wasn’t just saying that just to please me. She started reading at 9pm and stayed up until she finished it after midnight.

The reviews on Amazon US have been very favourable – almost all 5-star. If you haven’t read it yet, why not give it a go?

A Library With A View

The other day I mentioned in the Aussie Libraries Facebook page that Katoomba library must have one of the world’s best views for a library. Someone commented that there probably isn’t much competition.

Do you know of any libraries which have great views?
