FOUND (Not Quite a Billionaire, Book 3)

What do you do when you lose Hope? You get her back.

I’d lived my life according to two principles: discipline and control. Until now. There’s that phrase, though, isn’t there. “How’s that working out for you?” The answer, when it came to Hope Sinclair, was, “not so well.” She might be little, she might be sweet, and she might be young, but if I’d thought she’d be compliant anywhere but in bed, I’d learned my lesson.

To keep her, I had to let her go. To hold her, I had to turn her loose. To have her in my life, I had to accept that she was nine thousand miles away from me in New Zealand, in my grandfather’s house in Katikati, surrounded by the loving members of my Maori whanau and much too close to the not-so-loving ones.

All of that was killing me. On the other hand, I thought it might be working, so I was going to do it. No matter what.

FRACTURED (Not Quite a Billionaire)

FracturedFRACTURED (Not Quite a Billionaire, Book 2)

What do you do with a person who’s out of control and won’t listen to reason? Especially if that person might be you?

When I’d taken Hope Sinclair and her sister to New Zealand to meet my grandfather, I’d known I’d be making the return journey as her husband. I hadn’t reckoned, though, on the demons of my past coming back to threaten every assumption I’d made about my future. And, as always, I hadn’t reckoned on Hope.

 I had hundreds of millions of dollars and thousands of employees to tell me I had better judgment and more self-discipline than most people, and neither my iron self-control nor anything else I owned had been won the easy way. That was why I was a New Yorker with a penthouse and a fashion empire instead of a dirt-poor Maori boy with too much tattoo, too many muscles, two alcoholic parents, and not much more. So why did Hope continually dig in her heels and refuse to go along with my perfectly rational pl­­­ans? And why did I keep compromising?

Because I couldn’t resist her, couldn’t say no to her, and couldn’t stand to see her unhappy, that was why.  And there’s more than one way to bring a strong man to his knees.

Note: This is a full-length novel with a cliffhanger that will be resolved in Part 3, the last part, coming in August 2016. It contains one Maori multimillionaire with control issues, one fierce blonde with a mind of her own, and some very dirty loving.

I never asked Hemi Te Mana to rescue me.

It was true that I had a lousy job. Not to mention a lousy apartment and way too much responsibility, although it was a responsibility I wouldn’t have given up for the world. That still didn’t mean I needed rescuing, if that was what you’d call the situation I ended up in.

And anyway, I knew that a multimillionaire Maori CEO with too many muscles, a tribal tattoo, and a take-no-prisoners attitude was way, way out of my league.

So, no, I didn’t ask him to, but he rescued me anyway. Because Hemi was fierce. But you know what I found out? So was I.

What is this? It’s the first in my new series–AND it’s the story-within-a-story that Faith is writing in JUST IN TIME (Escape to New Zealand, Book 8).

It was such an interesting challenge to write not only my book, but Faith’s book–the book where she could express her feelings about Will. Hemi’s my hero, but he’s Faith’s, too–not to mention Hope’s! It was all a little schizophrenic, but so much fun.

And this, for some reason, is the theme song. It should be something darker and, well, fiercer–but instead, this was the song that kept running through my head as I was finishing it. I guess the point is, Hemi gets happy and learns what matters, and loves Hope so much. Al Green, L-O-V-E.
