The Education of Sebastian

Trapped in a loveless marriage, thirty-year-old Caroline Wilson moves to San Diego after her military husband earns a promotion. Feeling lost and alone, Caroline strikes up a friendship with young local surfer Sebastian Hunter.

Sebastian has more than friendship on his mind when he runs into Caroline on the beach. But when sparks fly, friendship turns into an illicit love that threatens them both.

The Education of Caroline

Now a successful journalist, Caroline heads out to report from the front lines of the war in Afghanistan. Love is the last thing on her mind when she crosses paths with Marine Chief Sebastian Hunter.

Will this chance encounter reignite the erotic passion of their past?

Sebastian & Caroline bonus chapters.

Lots of people have asked me about the new bonus chapter and new extended epilogue for Seb and Caro’s story. If you have already bought ‘The Education of Caroline’, you DON’T have to buy the combined volume to read the new chapters. Nope, really!  : )

The new bonus chapters have been uploaded to ‘The Education of Caroline’ on Amazon. To receive them, make sure you have set your Kindle’s AUTOMATIC BOOK UPDATE to ON. But don’t forget to also turn on the ANNOTATION BACK UP or you’ll lose any notes that you’ve made on books you’ve read. Click here for an article that explains it.

For people who have bought from Smashwords, sorry, but there’s no automatic update. The bonus chapters will be posted on my website this summer.

Exposure

ExposureWhen journalist Helene La Borde overhears a chance conversation on a train, she becomes implicated in one of the great cover-ups in history.

Chased from her home, her first clue about the people trying to kill her is at a drug-fumed house among the surfers of Hawaii’s North Shore. Her second clue is revealed by a Shinto priest in Japan, and the third clue – or possibly a dangerous red herring – by an IT and security specialist in Bahrain. When she lands in the bizarre twilight world of conspiracy-theorist super-hackers on America’s West Coast, the danger is chillingly real.Along for the ride is ex-mercenary Charlie Paget. But Helene begins to wonder if he is protecting her or using her.When government agents do more than threaten, Helene is forced to tell everything she knows, or thinks she knows. A final chase through New York’s Holland Tunnel gets Helene to her publishing agent, and the chance to tell her story – if she dares. Helene’s personal cost is high. Set against the backdrop of international finance, government debt and the murky world of computer hackers, ‘Exposure’ is a fast-paced, intelligent thriller that will appeal to readers of crime, as well as action adventure fiction.

A thriller that will appeal to readers of ‘The Ghost’.

Playing in the Rain

Playing in the RainAva Lawton can’t believe her run of bad luck. It’s supposed to be an exciting time in her life: fresh out of college, living in a new state, with a new job, and away from her family at last.

But when she’s forced to quit her job, everything falls apart quickly. Suddenly, she’s alone in a crowd, with no one to turn to.

At her lowest point, a stranger gives her a message that brings her hope.

Now is the time to live life her own way.

Now is the time to choose to be happy.

And maybe it’s time to let a beautiful stranger be part of her life.


Press

So happy that Cody and Ava’s story made the Huffington Post – ‘The Ultimate List of Ugly Cry Novels’, saying:

“Ava and Cody’s love is sweet and sincere and eternal, but unfortunately life is not. A love and adventure story that reminds us to be grateful for what we’ve got.”

Behind The Wall: A Novella

Behind The WallPrison.

The place where dreams fade and hope dies.

That’s what it’s meant for the five years that Garrett has been behind bars. But now hope is on the horizon and he’s daring to dream again: small dreams, small hopes.

Getting his GED would be a start. If only his prison-appointed teacher Miss Ella Newsome wasn’t so damn sexy.

As Garrett and Ella start to play a dangerous game, the price could be higher than either of them have guessed.

This story first appeared in the anthology HOT FOR TEACHER in 2016. It has since been extended with new scenes, more heartache and even more heat.

Married at 19, Caroline Wilson is trapped in a cold and loveless marriage with an older man. After 11 years of living with David, a Flight Surgeon in the US Navy, her life is predictable and uninteresting, even to herself.

The child is now a man – in all but name. An innocent friendship leads to an illicit love that threatens their world.

For an all too brief summer, their happiness blooms.

Battle Scars

Battle ScarsFrom the dusty plains of Afghanistan to the sleek corridors of the New York Times, journalist MJ Buckman seeks the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. What she doesn’t expect to find is a man who’s her complete opposite … and fits her perfectly.

Marine Sergeant Jackson Connor knows that relationships don’t work for men in the military. He’s living proof of that. But when a steely-eyed temptress in a flak jacket, who carries her moral cause in front of her, crosses his path, he’s furious, curious, and all kinds of in-lust.

* * *

A grown-up love story about two people who aren’t looking for love, but realize how precious it is when they find it. They don’t play games and there are no stupid misunderstandings, just life standing in their way.

Can they compromise? And what does that look like in a modern relationship between two driven people?

Assignment Vs deployment.

They’re always traveling in different directions. What relationship can survive that?

Dangerous to Know & Love

Dangerous To Know & LoveNineteen-year-old Daniel Colton is the guy all the girls want to date, and the man all the guys want to be. Moody, with an explosive temper, closed off and sullen, he’s also beautiful, tatted in delicious ways, with a pierced eyebrow and spiky black hair. It’s rumoured he has piercings in other places, too. Is he really mad, bad and dangerous to know?

Daniel lives with his older brother, Zef, and their home is party central. You want drugs, a good time, liquor, no questions asked? Colton’s is the place to go.

When Daniel and good girl Lisanne Maclaine have to work on together on assignment, Lisanne finds there’s a lot more to the college’s bad boy than his reputation. He’s intelligent and funny and good company. And then she discovers his secret, why he’s so closed off to everyone, and determined to keep people at arms’ length. But being his secret-keeper is harder than she ever dreamed.

Later, After – playscript

What happens to people who have served their country in their life later, after the military?

Alex Hunter: ex-husband, ex-army, ex-bomb disposal officer.

Arrested after yet another bar fight, Alex is kept in custody and examined by a police psychiatrist to assess his fitness to be interviewed by police.

What follows is a verbal duel between Dr. Helen Ashton and Alex. He sees her as a well-meaning but ultimately naïve do-gooder working for them—the military family who no longer support or understand him.

Undefeated

Jane Harvey-Berrick & Stewart Reardon

When your world crashes down…

When they all say you’re out…

When your body is broken…

I will rise…

I will return…

And I will be undefeated.

Nick Renshaw is the golden boy of British rugby. When a serious injury threatens his career, he starts to spiral downwards, a broken man.

Feeling abandoned and betrayed by those closest to him, he fights to restart his life. Maybe there’s someone out there who can help him. Maybe he can find his way back toward the light. Maybe … not.

Dr. Anna Scott might be the one person who can help Nick, but she has her own secrets. And when Nick’s past comes back to haunt them both, the enigmatic doctor is more vulnerable than she seems.

Broken and betrayed, the struggle to survive seems intolerable. Who will give in, and who will rise, undefeated?


With Stuart Reardon in DublinHow this book came about…

“I have this idea for a book we could write together—a rugby romance! We’ll base it on your experiences of being a professional rugby player and, um, you know, romance!”

“Sounds great. But I’m not a writer.”

“Well, you can tell stories, so you can write.”

“Um…”

“What’s the biggest crowd you ever played in front of?”

“Old Trafford, 80,000 people.”

“Blimey!”

“Yeah, it was amazing.”

“Okay, well, write about that. Tell me what it felt like to walk out in front of that many people. What could you hear? What could you see? What was going through your mind?”

“I’ll give it a go.”

[Waits for message box to pop up, drums fingers, a day later … oh good, he’s done it. Reads text.]

“Oh wow!”

[Hair stands up on the back of Jane’s neck as she’s swept away by Stuart’s words.]

“Oh my God! That was sooooo good!”

“You think so?”

“YES!!!!”

“Okay.”

“No, not ‘okay’! It was fantastic! Honestly, the hair stood up on the back of my neck! Can you write some more like that?”

“Sure.”

And from that, our book was born.
