book blurb

A fresh contemporary romance about a lonely girl looking for love, family and the perfect dress.

Managing a flailing second-hand clothes shop in an English village is not part of Cally Kirkwood’s life plan. But she’s travelled across the world to meet her birth father and she won’t leave until he acknowledges her.

But life happens when you’re busy making plans, and Cally soon finds herself completely invested in converting the grungy shop into a beautiful vintage clothing store, despite the opposition of her new employer’s son, Sam Hunter.

Sam is instantly attracted to Cally but can’t figure her out. There’s something she isn’t telling him and he doesn’t know whether to trust her—yet he can’t stay away.

An unexpected discovery means Cally must decide whether her true loyalty lies with her father or Sam. She thought she’d do anything to find love; but choosing between her past and her future may leave her with no love at all.

excerpt

Sam dropped the rake, grabbed the handles of the wheelbarrow and wheeled Cally at top speed towards the pile of leaves.

‘Wha—?’ Cally’s squeal was cut short as she was tumbled into the leaves. Sam picked up a handful of colourful foliage and dumped it on her, laughing at her look of mock outrage, before diving into the pile to join her. ‘I haven’t done this for years. My sisters and I loved playing in the leaves when we were kids. Dad would rake the biggest pile and we’d bomb it. He’d pretend it drove him nuts, but he loved it too.’

Through the leaves, Cally felt Sam’s hands grab her and he hoisted her up, rolling her until she was lying, stretched out along the full length of his muscular body. His hands stroked down her back, falling to rest on her buttocks. He squeezed lightly, his hands wedging her closer until she could feel his hardness, and a blazing need for him clutched deep in her belly.

She buried her face into his neck, breathing in the tantalisingly earthy mix of garden and leather, licking the salt from beneath his ear. His hands slipped underneath the huge coat, searching for skin, but finding only the frustration of a dress not designed to aid exploring fingers. She laughed, wriggling suggestively, as she kissed him, her tongue wrangling with his, teasing, probing. She knew he was trying to distract her from asking personal questions, which heightened her curiosity nearly as much as it heightened her desire. She wanted to know so much more about him.

Pulling away, she looked into eyes that were strong and sensual. It was too much to hope a man this beautiful could ever really be hers. Even dressed in old clothes, lying in a pile of leaves, he emanated so much irresistible desire.

But she had to fight the attraction, not succumb to it. There were too many complications to their relationship … She struggled out of his grasp, sat up and brushed the leaves out of her hair. They had no future once he discovered who she was.

Whatever personal information he avoided sharing with her, it had nothing on the secret she hid from him.

book blurb

A fresh new voice in contemporary romance, Maddie Jane debuts her romantic comedy novel about a woman who knows how to fix things and the man who wants to convince her that DIY is more fun with two…

Toppling from her very high heels into Luke Colton’s arms is not the impression Harper Cassidy likes to make. She is strong, independent, and on a personal mission to teach DIY skills to women, and he is all wrong – determined to get involved, determined to help her, and determined to mess with her self-control and self-imposed single lifestyle.

Harper has been more than clear that her plans don’t include him, but there’s something about a woman that knows her way around a power tool that has Luke too enthralled to walk away. Taking his mother along to Harper’s DIY for women classes is the perfect excuse to watch her in action, and maybe convince her that doing it for yourself doesn’t always mean having to go it alone.

excerpt

Luke had considered not going back to the classroom to talk to Harper, but he’d never been one to shy away from a fight.

And she still had the sexy tool belt on. Which helped. A lot.

‘I didn’t think you’d be back,’ she said, not meeting his gaze.

‘It seemed a waste of a good ‘I’ll be back’ not to.’ He looked at her, wondering if she got the Arnie reference. She stared blankly, jiggling a hammer for a second before shoving it into a loop on her belt. ‘And I thought we had a few things we should slug out in private,’ he said. ‘As in, not in front of an entire class of your students. Or even worse, my mother,’ he added as an afterthought.

‘What sort of things?’ Harper’s hand was back on the hammer, which made Luke extremely nervous. If forced to describe her right now, this very second, the words ‘armed and dangerous’ would be perfect.

‘I thought we probably needed to discuss this thing we’ve got between us, for starters.’

‘What thing?’ Her hand held the head of the hammer, lifting it and then letting it slide back through its loop. Lift, slide. Lift, slide.

‘You can pretend all you want, Harper, but there is a thing and it’s the reason we got naked together.’

For a second the hammer was still. Then lift, slide. Lift, slide.

‘People get naked for a whole lot of reasons. It doesn’t have to be a big deal.’

‘True. Only I get the feeling it is a big deal for you, which is why you turfed me out on my arse the way you did.’

Harper’s hand formed a fist around the hammer, her white knuckles the only indication she acknowledged his words. At least the lift–slide had stopped before it completely threw him off course.

‘Okay, so now we’ve talked about that. What else did you want to talk about?’ said Harper.
