Jenn Klein was raised in the human world unaware of her gryphon heritage or the legacy before her. Devastated by the death of her twin brother, she makes the uncharacteristic decision to find emotional connection with a stranger, a man she knows only as Talon in the cave-like sleeper cab of his rig. But no sooner is she introduced to the gryphon world they’re meant to share than she’s violently taken and forced to fight, delicately balancing the human world she knows with the world of the gryphons. Born and reared a proud warrior, Talon’s life takes the turn of most male gryphons; that of a rogue, existing in both the human world and on the fringes of his adopted Rocky Mountain eyrie. After proving himself to the beautiful but emotionally damaged rogue female in his truck they part ways. He’s haunted by her presence in his heart until they’re reunited in his eyrie. When she’s torn from his arms he’ll stop at nothing to have the woman he now calls Shadow returned to his side.

Coercion, jealousy, and spite? This nasty, upper-crust English git is about to run into a bucket of super-glue in the hands of a very determined woman. Jennie Farrell always believed there was a happily ever after out there for everyone. Shame she's missed out on her own. Rocking up in London with close friend Samantha, Jennie falls back on her long-ignored artistic skills to make ends meet. Her future is even looking bright when she runs into Rupert Smythe-Brown, an aristocratic prat used to getting his own way, no matter who gets hurt in the process. Painted into a corner, Jennie turns feral and Rupert doesn't know what's hit him. Well he does, but for once he's not enjoying it. Thank goodness she's got Mark, a strapping six foot four Aussie bloke watching her back and keeping her out of trouble - at least when he's not trying to get her into it. Brush With Fame is a chuckle along, feel good book for any woman who's ever wanted to fight back but hasn't felt strong enough.
Her other half is soft in all the wrong places. She's on the bones of her arse. Could freedom come in the unlikely form of a jar of pickled onions and a small tartan thermos? For primary school teacher Vivienne, life has turned into one long detention. Stuck in a dead-end relationship, nothing's working, especially Kenny her live-in boyfriend. Viv isn't sure why she snaps that Friday night. Is it that his foreplay will never rate a mention in Cosmo, or her having to spend yet another night on a couch infused with Chinese takeaways? Perhaps it's a bit of both that sees her bolting, reasoning anywhere is better than there. Now all she needs is a new job, a new home and a new life. A piece of cake, right? Landing a live-in nanny role sorts two of these. Now all she has to deal with is a seven-year-old who's an unnatural shade of blue, an over-zealous member of the British slap and tickle club and the rekindling of an old flame. Will Viv's patched-up new life be strong enough to resist her past?
