The Latest

AnnieWest_FallingForTheBroodingItalian_800pxFALLING FOR THE BROODING ITALIAN, the last of my Hot Italian Nights novellas, is on sale now.  You can order it here or read an excerpt here.

If you haven’t already checked out this e-novella series, these shorter stories pack the same emotional punch as my longer ones, and delve into that world of glamour and passion (and exotic locations) that I love. The series began with BACK IN THE ITALIAN’S BED and BOUGHT BY THE ITALIAN. Then in June came BOUND TO THE ITALIAN BOSS, in July THE ITALIAN’S BOLD RECKONING then AT THE ITALIAN’S BIDDING.

Here’s a taste of my Brooding Italian:

A heart of ice…

Aurelio de Laurentis is rich, sexy and single. Determinedly so. He lost his love and his heart years ago. Now he buries himself in business. One of Italy’s most successful winemakers, he’s up to his neck in harvests and multi-million dollar expansion plans.

A chance encounter with free-spirited Amber Moncrieff leads to a white-hot affair. But even as he becomes dangerously addicted to her passion and sweetness, he tells himself he can still walk away.

 A gift of love…

Amber knows Aurelio doesn’t do long term. Any emotional involvement with the enigmatic, sexy-as-hell Italian promises nothing but disaster. But her stubborn, generous heart has other ideas.

When their love affair has unexpected consequences, Amber beards the reclusive tycoon in his winery. Surely they can be friends, if only for the sake of their unborn child. She knows better than to ask for more. Yet as she peels back the layers of mystery surrounding Aurelio and learns about his shattered past, how can she steel herself against falling for the brooding Italian?

Can she break the ice around his heart and convince him to love again? If not for her sake, then for their child’s?

September 2017For readers in Australia and New Zealand, Mills and Boon is publishing a special new edition in September called CONSUMED BY DESIRE. This collection contains three of my novels: A MISTRESS FOR THE TAKING, UNDONE BY HIS TOUCH and THE SAVAKIS MISTRESS. Here’s a link to it.

9780373061068 Then, after that comes my PRINCESS SEDUCTIONS duet 51zbOKvDhBL__SX310_BO1,204,203,200_with Harlequin Mills and Boon. This consists of HIS MAJESTY’S TEMPORARY BRIDE, followed by THE GREEK’S FORBIDDEN PRINCESS. These are stand alone books about two royal half sisters who find themselves in a world of trouble, especially when it comes to dealing with the passionate, determined men in their lives. For extra fun, read them one after another as there are strong links between then. I’ll provide more detail on those soon. Meanwhile, here are the US and UK covers of the first one.




untitledIf you can’t wait that long for one of my longer romances, don’t forget you can still grab a copy of my second Desert Kings story THE DESERT KING’S CAPTIVE BRIDE :

“I was blackmailed into this marriage. I will not be blackmailed into bed.”  

Princess Ghizlan of Jeirut has returned home to find that warrior Sheikh Huseyn al Rasheed has seized her late father’s kingdom. With her sister held hostage, Ghizlan has no choice. Her barbarian captor is determined to tame her, rule her—and make her his own! 

CCN FOR WEBIf your taste runs to historical romance, I can recommend a new story out now from Anna Campbell. Her CATCHING CAPTAIN NASH is the final in her bestselling ‘Dashing Widows’ series and a really lovely read.
