World Apart Series
Crossing the Line ( World Apart 1)
Laying it all on the line for love…
Mia Cresswell is tired of being good.
Achieving geek status at college doesn’t equate with fun. So when she heads home to her dad’s tennis academy in Santa Monica on spring break, she’s determined to be bad. And hot Aussie tennis star Kye Sheldon is just the guy to help her do it.
However, Kye’s troubled past continues to dog him and attending the Cresswell Tennis Academy is his last chance at the big time. He can’t afford to screw up…by screwing the boss’s daughter.
But Mia and Kye’s relationship is much more than a vacation fling.
Will it be game, set, match, when the truth is revealed?
Or will Mia and Kye have a real shot at love all?
The college years have always fascinated me so when ‘new adult’ become a subgenre, I jumped at the chance to write a series.
Mia is a good college girl. Kye is a bad boy Aussie tennis star with rebel in his veins.
Kye’s on his last chance when he’s shipped off to LA. He needs to keep his hands off Mia.
Easier said than done.
I love writing sexy Aussie heroes and Kye stole my heart as well as Mia’s. (If you haven’t read Walking the Line, the prequel to this series, please do so. You’ll get more of an insight into Kye.)
Towing the Line ( World Apart 2 )
I need a new start. Anonymity. In a country where no one will know me, and the havoc I create.
Not all the rumors about me are true. But I made one mistake too many in LA and attending an Australian college for a few semesters is the perfect solution.
I plan on avoiding guys. But the part-time tutor and sexy Aussie artist Ashton? Has me re-evaluating the wisdom of being a reformed bad girl.
Ash is aloof, dedicated, serious, and I must corrupt him. So I seduce him. Not expecting to fall in love for the first time. And the last.
Because Ash has high standards and when he learns the truth about me, he’ll join the long list of people in my life pretending I don’t exist.
I love complex characters with dark backstories and that encapsulates Dani. She did a very nasty thing in Crossing the Line to her BFF Mia and I knew it would be hard to redeem her.
But this tough chick has a vulnerable core and Aussie artist Ashton is the perfect guy to dig beneath her exterior.
Both Dani and Ashton are flawed and I loved how they complemented each other.
Redeeming a bad girl is always tough and I hope you enjoy reading about Dani as much as I did creating her.
Blurring the Line ( World Apart 3 )
Annabelle Cleary travels half way around the world…to fall in love with the boy next door all over again.
Completing her degree at a college in Denver may just be the most exciting thing this small town girl has ever done. Until she discovers her new mentor is Joel Goodes, the guy who once rocked her world.
Joel isn’t a keeper. He’ll break her heart again. But Annabelle can’t resist the sexy Aussie at his devastating best and soon they’re indulging in an all-too-brief fling.
Annabelle wants it all: career, relationship and kids, in the hometown she’s always loved. The same town that holds nothing but bad memories for Joel.
When they return to Australia, will it be a homecoming they’ll never forget?
Friends to lovers is one of my favourite romance tropes to read and write. Annabelle and Joel have a past in small town Australia, so imagine what happens when they reunite years later in the USA?
The fact they’re both physiotherapists (my occupation prior to writing) just added to the fun for me!
Walking the Line ( prequel, World Apart ) AVAILABLE FREE!
Finn Ahearn’s Irish luck runs out when he travels half way around the world to Sydney.
The seedier side of the city’s Kings Cross soon catches up with him and he finds the only way he can get back on stable footing is to accept a bartending job, working for tough Aussie bar owner Ellie Finch.
Ellie is a decade older than Finn but that doesn’t stop the charming Irishman from wooing her.
Ellie doesn’t believe in the happily-ever-after dream any longer, not since hers imploded a long time ago. Her values are a world apart from Finn’s. They have absolutely nothing in common.
But can a smooth-talking Irishman sway a hard-hearted cynic to believe in love again?
When several American authors asked me to be part of an Irish-themed anthology, I leaped at the chance. I love all things Irish! And when a hot guy has an Irish accent…swoon. Finn is a charmer, Ellie is a cynic and a decade older, the perfect recipe for a hard-fought romance.
Throw in Kye, the hero in Crossing the Line, and I had the recipe for a prequel. Enjoy!
