Anton
When I was assigned the job to find out who exactly orchestrated the hit on Mariana Petran, I jumped at the opportunity. To attack the queen of the clans is an attack against us all. I was to find the man who ordered it – and I did. I also found myself a feisty redhead; something I considered a cherry on top of the sundae as I headed to her hometown to destroy the man responsible for it all.
So, there I was, delivering a bloody and violent end to the scum that betrayed us when the door opens, and in walks my feisty redhead; Natasha.

Natasha
I came home from a wild night out with the girls and found my uncle bloodied and bruised, with a gun held to the back of his head. The man holding the gun – my boyfriend, Anton.
I never thought that I would be begging for his life – doing anything that I could to save him. But he’s my family. He’s the only link I have left to my mother.
Anton didn’t tell me he was in the Romanian Mob – but I never confessed I was the niece of a head clan member, or anything about my father, but we’ll get to that later.
Anton named his price. I didn’t understand why, what he could possibly find valuable with taking the niece of Clan Constantin – especially when he already had me.
I accepted the terms, the trade. I’d do anything to save my uncle, even if that meant sacrificing myself. Anton promised me that he wouldn’t kill my uncle, like a dumb girl I assumed that meant my uncle would live.
Anton may not have pulled the trigger, but make no mistake – he killed my uncle.
The loving man I’d learned to care about over the past few weeks turned into something feral – I didn’t even know the man I was falling in love with.
I waited for my father, and prayed he would come for me.
They didn’t even know the girl they were taking.
They were clueless.

On the snowy banks of Whiskey River, even a blizzard can’t stop the thawing of two hearts.

She’s looking for adventure in the West, but discovers more. He’s sure he’ll never find love, until she lands at his door. Together, Gabriella and Dirk will discover a spark that even a blizzard can’t quench.

Gabriella Grimaldi is new to Whiskey River—a quiet frontier town, where those who dream of a different life gather under the big, open sky. Escaping a life of faux friends and duty, Gabriella forsakes her life of fortune and runs away. What she gets instead is an education in the ways of the world.

Not far from town, Dirk Price is settling in for another long winter in Whiskey River, when a lost young woman shows up at his door. In the light of the fireside, Gabriella and Dirk find themselves unfreezing their chilly hearts and protecting one another against not only the cold, but from evil forces. Can they let love in, or will they turn away from happiness when danger knocks at the door?

In the depths of winter under the weight of a blizzard, return to the sleepy, snowy banks of Whiskey River, Wyoming, in A Whiskey River Princess.

EXCERPT

Gabriella shrugged as she picked up her carpetbag and headed off toward the hotel, hoping they had a vacancy. She never had to arrange for her own place to stay before. In Monaco, everything had just been done for her, arranged for her. It just was and something she didn’t have to think about. She sighed as she looked up at the hotel. It wasn’t what she was used to, but it was as good a place as any to start. Surely, Mr. Carlo wouldn’t find her there.
Suddenly, two men grabbed her arms, one on each side, causing her to drop her bag.
“What’s the meaning of this?” Gabriella gasped. When she looked up, two of the three scruffy men from the train had her. The man with the long beard gave her a toothless smile. “Let go of me!”
She heard a click, and something round and hard was pushed against her back. “If you know what’s good for you, miss, you’ll keep it down. Don’t attract any attention, or I’ll be forced to shoot you right here.”
Gabriella turned to look in his eyes. “Then go ahead and shoot! I’d rather be dead than go with the likes of you!”
He grabbed a handful of her dark brown hair and jerked her head back. “Listen, bitch! I’m warning you!”
“Get off me!” she demanded, but the younger man on her right shoved his dirty hand over her mouth and pulled her quickly down an alley. “Help! Let go of me, you brute!” she mumbled around his hand.
“Shut up!” the man with the gold tooth, who had been standing behind her, growled through gritted teeth. The young man threw her over his shoulder and carried her toward a wagon where another scruffy-looking man with red hair and a beard waited.
“It’s about time you got here.” The man looked at Gabriella, kicking and screaming, and leered. “Hey! What do we have here?”
“Payday,” the younger man replied, trying to keep Gabriella on his shoulder.
“Help, someone!” Gabriella shouted as she beat on the man’s back.
When she looked up, the man with long hair who had been waiting for Kenzie was standing at the end of the alley on the street.
“Help me! Please!”
“Hold it right there,” the man who had come to get Kenzie ordered as he pushed his coat aside, revealing two sidearms, one on each side, tied down to his leg. “Let her go!”
The man with the scruffy beard drew his pistol and fired, but the man with the long hair was quicker, and shot him right between the eyes, which went glassy. He fell against the wagon and then onto the ground.
The younger man threw Gabriella into the back of the covered wagon, drew his gun, and fired at the man. “Go, go!” he shouted at the driver and then climbed in, too.

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 5, 2018

BLURB

Holly
Growing up, I was treated like a Princess.
But everyone knows, to get your happily ever after, you have to fight for the fairy-tale.
And I’d certainly endured more than my fair share of fights.
Relentlessly bullied at boarding school, my brothers brought me home to help me heal.
But I was scarred by the secrets I harboured, both inside and out.
Being home though, means risking everyone finding out my ugly truth.
And I can’t let that happen.

Jack
My family’s a mess.
It’s probably why I spend more nights asleep in my ute, than I do in my own bed.
I don’t have the time or the energy to deal with anything more.
One day at a time is all I can handle right now.
Yet when I see her, the broken girl sitting alone in the dirt, I can’t simply drive past.
Before I know what’s happening my life’s tangled with my tortured, beautiful neighbour.
And there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.

I live in Canberra Australia and work too many hours a day at my day job.

I’m a book whore who can easily (and happily) read a book from start to finish in a day and when I do have spare time, you’ll find me in the writing cave.

Sofia Valenti dreams of a life spent designing beautiful homes for the family business. But as her to-do list can attest, that dream is still far away. Stuck doing office work for Valenti Brothers Construction and stress eating her weight in chocolate, she wants more than hand-me-down responsibilities. When her father, Dom, signs up the whole family for a reality TV show, Sofia sees a chance to grab the spotlight for her dream.

Adrian Villanueva has spent his life on the outside looking in. When Dom talks retirement, Adrian sees his chance to finally buy his way into the company he helped build.

When hidden attraction flares into open desire, they must decide if a chance at love is worth giving up on a lifetime of dreams.

Read Kay’s Review: Opened Up

“Well, babe, I gotta say, more money always sounds good to me.”

Ugh. It’s like he does it without even thinking. She passed him the paperwork and pointed to the pertinent sections.

 


 

“I just started going through this. Give it a read-through, and tell me if you see any red flags. I’m going to refill my coffee.”

 


She needed a minute to calm her swirling thoughts, and sitting in a small room with a man who simultaneously generated a low-level buzz of attraction while also making her want to punch him in the stomach was not helping. His proposal had stunned her, and she’d not responded well. She pulled down another mug out of force of habit and filled it before topping hers off as well. She added one sugar and a healthy dollop of cream to his, fake sugar and cream to her own.

All done, but nowhere near ready to return, she braced her hands on the peacock granite countertop, stretched her arms long and dropped her head between them. She lengthened her spine and took a deep breath, aiming for some of the peace she’d felt when she’d dropped into a yoga class with Brandy.

Change itself was nothing to fear. So what if most of the changes in her life had been awful? That didn’t mean these changes were going to be bad, too. She could handle whatever needed handling. She’d managed before, and she could do it again. And she was absolutely full of crap. She was three seconds from panicking, and her deep-breathing exercises were getting trapped in her clenching throat.

“Hey, are you okay?” Adrian’s deep, husky voice skittered up her spine, leaving a trail of goose bumps that didn’t subside when she jumped and squealed. 

Why did this man have the power to make her feel like a twelve-year-old girl? She spun to face him, only to find that he’d invaded the space she’d cleared and was reaching for her shoulder, as if to steady her. She backed away swiftly, bumping into the counter and rattling the cups. Remembering why she’d come to the kitchen in the first place, she handed him the coffee she’d made him, being careful not to scald herself with a brush of his fingertips. She could pick apart the ridiculousness of her response later.

“Yeah, I’m fine.” She retreated into a sip of her own fortifying mug.

He mirrored her sip and stepped back as well. Message finally freaking received. Good.

“You know how I take my coffee?” He grinned as if this detail somehow meant something special.

“I know everyone’s coffee order. Have you not noticed who keeps the lists for meeting coffee runs? Or who is constantly being charged with stocking the kitchen? Or did you just think a magical caffeine fairy came in at night and brought lattes to all the good little boys?” She tried once again to take him down a peg while setting him straight. She couldn’t have him thinking that she’d been watching him, paying attention to his personal preferences. Even if she had.

Once again, her sarcasm flew right over his head. He raised the contract in his hand and held it out to her.

“Listen, I tried to read through this, but it might as well be written in Latin. Can you walk me through the specifics?”

“I just got it myself. Give me a day or two to really pick it apart, and I’ll fill you in.”

“Thanks, angel. That sounds good.” He tossed the contract on the break room table, supremely confident, coffee in hand. 

She’d wager he hadn’t even heard the “Sure thing” she’d managed through clenched teeth. How could she be so attracted to someone who pissed her off so royally?

Good thing he didn’t know, or he’d be insufferable.
