Behind the Courtesan - historical romance
When courtesan Sophia Martin returns to the village she fled as a young woman, she knows it won't be a happy reunion—but she can't refuse her brother's request to attend his expectant wife. Trapped until the baby arrives, she must navigate the social rift she caused when she left to pursue a disreputable life—and keep the true reason for her departure from the man she once loved, the bastard son of the Duke who ruined her.
Blake Vale has never forgotten Sophia, but he can't accept the decisions she made, the courtesan's life she leads, or the fact she's cast aside her true self. Plain old Sophia has to be inside this hardened woman somewhere, and he's determined to make her see she doesn't need rich men to be happy, and that their future has nothing to do with the past.
When the dukedom suddenly falls within his reach, Blake must come to terms with his own past and his birthright, and what that means for his future…and Sophia.
Mixing Business with Pleasure - contemporary romance
What's a girl to do when she finds herself naked except for her stilettos and backed up against a cold mirror, stuck between a rock and a very hard man? Alison Marcum loves her baby brother and would do anything for him–until the day his loan sharks arrive on her doorstep and demand she pay them ten thousand dollars or else. With no way to repay the money, and not wanting to find out what they're capable of, Alison transforms herself from boring social worker to smoking hot model–but getting work isn't going to be the hard part for a woman who'd promised herself she'd never step in front of a camera again. Sam Mason is overseeing a jewellery advertising campaign, and after spending ten minutes in the boardroom with a nearly naked Alison, he decides he might actually enjoy the job. Strictly business, though. Sam's been burned by a model before and no matter how attracted he is, there's no way he's getting involved. As the lies begin to unravel and the loan sharks get impatient, will they both risk it all to be together or lose it all in a bid not to repeat the past?

She's the One - contemporary romance
In the game of love – and TV – you play to win or you lose your heart. Millionaire Banjo Grahams originally signed up for She's The One drunk as a skunk and willing to do anything to bed Australia's most beautiful women, but when he sobers up he realises he could lose much more than his reputation if he goes through with it. Unable to back out of an ironclad contract, he makes a deal with the network boss to rig the show, picking the lucky bachelorette ahead of time and guiding the season to meet his own ends and keep the board happy. When her father tells Eliza Peterson she isn't going to produce She's The One, but appear as a one of the contestants, she is livid. Competing for some guy on reality TV is no way to earn his – and the network's – respect and show them she is capable of producing shows of her own. But for all the planning and staging, somehow the show takes on a reality of its own, and the goals of Eliza and Banjo fall away from something neither of them expected – love.
