About House of Spades

Can love blaze later in life?

Free spirit Flame Rhys has sworn off love, but try convincing her reclusive neighbor Ross Archer.

In Australia’s beautiful Byron Bay hinterland, serial single Flame calls Ross a “hermit” while he accuses her of trespassing.

When the fiery redhead roasts Ross for stealing her caravan, she accidentally rekindles the widower’s passion for life, for his land and for love.

But how can he convince her to stay with him, when every other lover has let her down?

And does Flame harbour a dark secret, as Ross’s daughters suspect?

It’s another fast-paced international heart-warmer featuring the romantic fortunes of the extended Huntley family of jewellers. My books may be read in any order.

I am grateful for unexpected gifts. Thank you, WestWords, for the opportunity to read from House of Diamonds. (Apologies for the poor sound quality. The westerly was wind roaring across the harbour, rattling my windows!)

I am grateful to join forces with other authors to find new readers. Thank you to author Charlotte Dinnis for organising this promo.

Deepest thanks to all my VIPs for your interest in my work, your reviews and your wonderful words of encouragement!

Happy reading!
