THE LONELY HEART

Emily has one thing going for her—besides the couple of million dollars the insurance paid out when her parents died in an accident: She’s the best pal anyone could wish for. Everyone sees her as a friend, but nobody looks at her as a potential lover or wife. At thirty-eight, she’s sure it’s because of the limp she’s been born with. She’s resigned that her love for Miles, her best friends for as long as they can remember, will never be returned.
The more surprised she is when Miles declares his love and asks her to marry him. But nothing is as it seems …

THE LOST HEART

Keysha Simmons is not reaching for the stars. All she wants is to stay alive and out of prison.

Keeping to herself and hiding in Settler’s Ridge is her proven strategy—as long as they don’t know where to find her. 

When helicopter pilot Tyrell sees Keysha ready to jump off a bridge, he does what he always does: he comes to the rescue. However, he quickly learns nothing is as it looks, and not every beautiful woman needs rescuing.


At first glance, it seems these two hermits have nothing in common. But he’s ready to help when a nosy reporter thinks she’s found in Keysha, the fugitive and long-lost heiress of the House of D’Arbanville, the famous Melbourne fashion empire.


Staying alive and out of prison is suddenly not that simple anymore. Sick and tired of being scared all the time, she decides to turn the table on her family and clear her name. With Tyrell at her side and the help of a handful of new friends, she’s ready to fight back.


Can Tyrell help Keysha get justice and be able to trust love again? Or is she another one he can’t

THE HURTING HEART

She never meant to get married ~ and he never meant to fall in love

 All her life, Nurse Stephanie put her heart into the care of her patients. Now she’s willing to pay the price for her father’s drunk driving to keep him out of prison. She puts her own dreams aside to care for the man her father so recklessly injured. It becomes a rocky road for her when she develops feelings for Sean, who only responds with bitterness and hate.

Since Sean lost the use of his legs through the accident, he sank into deep hopelessness. No more rugby, no more mountain climbing. What’s a man worth without his legs? Every day he finds ways to make Stephanie pay for what her father took away from him.

Only a miracle can help them – but then, isn’t Christmas the time for miracles?
