Love and Mistletoe: A Holiday Contemporary Romance

love-mistletoeOne blizzard. Two opposites. A whole lot of time under the mistletoe.

Josh Carson has a secret. As a firefighter he’s comfortable being sent in to save forests and wildlife, but in his spare time he creates delicate hair ribbons that are anything but masculine. When he finds Simone snowed in on Nymph Island–and she’d rather freeze than be saved by Mr. Tough Guy–he realizes that the only way to win her over and get her to safety is to take a risk and reveal his true self.

Simone Pascal loves being independent and self-reliant–she’s never needed a man to save her, and yet she keeps falling into Josh’s arms at every turn, wanting him to rescue her. The worst part? She likes it. A lot. Which is a big problem since she’s rearranged her entire life to take on a new project-a baby via a sperm donor. Her life plans most definitely do not include anything as unpredictable as falling in love with Mr. Macho Firefighter, but that seems to be exactly what she’s doing.

Will the two come to terms with their true selves in time to snag their happily ever after? Or will they be spending Christmas cold and alone?

Read this addictive romance as a standalone!

On the Edge of the Loch: A Psychological Novel set in Ireland

edge-of-lochOne Irish autumn evening, in a little picturesque train station, I noticed a graceful young woman sitting alone;
she looked to be waiting for someone to arrive.

Over the next week I re-visited the station on five occasions to photograph it in different light.

The woman was there every time, still waiting.

On the day I was to leave we somehow found ourselves closer to each other.

She smiled at me, warmly. I smiled back.

Our eyes held in a sort of silent conversation.

She leaned closer, like she was about to talk to me, maybe tell me something.

But suddenly her head dropped, she turned away.

I sensed that she was waiting for a dream, a dream that would never show up.

But what if, I thought, what if that dream . . .

. . . This enigmatic woman inspired this 400-page novel. She’s too mysterious to be the main character, at first. So I wrote a bigger story around a driven man, and married the two.

It’s a story about a passionate search for freedom, sanity, and maybe love.

Critics said: ‘Intense’, ‘Unpredictable’, ‘Probably the best two final chapters I’ve read’.

Jack Engelhard (author, Indecent Proposal) said: ‘Epic, compelling! I could neither wait for nor predict the sublime outcome.’
