Following the death of his grandmother, Noah Fielding returns to Alinta Bay and the first thing — or person — he finds is the next-door neighbour in his nan’s bathroom — naked no less. Still jetlagged, he doesn’t hit it off with Molly at first. Yet, over the next few weeks, as his past uncovers itself bit by bit, she becomes is anchor, his friend, and his lover.

Molly Reid had the world at her feet, happily married with a young son … until a tragic car accident took everything away from her.

Can two seemingly incompatible people who judge each other on past events be able to find some common ground?

Harrison Hendrix believes in second chances, but when it comes to Melody, he has every reason to doubt it’s possible. He’s conflicted when he sees her back in town and tries his best to see the change in her that other friends mention. Even more so when spending a night with her after being set up for a dinner date.

Life hasn’t been kind to Melody Foster, and she returns to Alinta Bay for a new beginning. Hit by tragedy again, she’s determined to live life to the fullest and with no regrets. She creates a bucket list … on which #8 the very difficult, yet extremely sexy Harrison has been included. Why does it seem he’s always around when she’s in trouble?

Maybe it's time to take a risk and leave the past where it belongs, but will trusting their instinct be the right choice for them?




Touch Me

She loves the feel of his skin beneath her hands …

Lexie Marshall packs up and moves 3,000 km east with her daughter Zoe, to forget and move on. Now, all that matters is her daughter and her new job.

But when her past catches up with her, he is right in the middle of it all and it might ruin his career.

Will returning to her old life be the only chance to save his career?





Excerpt from Between Goodbye and Hello

When Harrison returned to the lounge room, he saw Melody sitting in front of the open fire he’d started for her, her hands stretched towards it for some warmth.

Here’s another blanket.”

She looked up with a hesitant smile. “Thank you.”

He watched her wrap herself into it. It was obvious her core temperature was still low. With a curse on the tip of his tongue, he walked over to the table, grabbed the bottle of red, and sat on the couch.

Can I offer you a glass of wine?” he grumbled.

She shook her head, but otherwise didn’t reply. Good, he didn’t want to talk either, but curiosity got the better of him.

So, tell me again. How did you end up in the water?”

She lowered her head. Her voice was so soft he had to strain to hear her reply. “I slipped.”

And you were standing out on the rocks, why?”


He stared at his glass of wine, his voice not much more than a whisper. “You could’ve died.”

Wouldn’t that have made your day.”

Despite his dislike for her, her words went through him like a knife. He didn’t wish death on anybody, not even her. Especially not her. God knew why, but there was something about her he wasn’t able to resist. Yet, she was a thief. How could he trust her?

He agreed, she wasn’t his favourite person to know.

Or to spend a Friday night with. At his house, in front of the open fire, no less. And her half naked.

Heat shot through him, and he had another sip of wine to shake that image from his head.

Damn that woman.

As he enjoyed his wine, Melody turned to look at him. “I know you don’t like me. And yes, I agree, it was a low act what I’ve done to your mother. I apologised to her and paid off the whole amount. My grandmother left me some money, so you don’t have to worry.” Raising her eyebrows as if in a challenge she continued. “I hope that makes your day.”

Ignoring another swipe at him, he leaned back into the couch. He still wasn’t able to figure out what she’d been doing out there and his inner curiosity took over. “There’s a storm out there and you chose to go for a walk along the cliff.”

You obviously did, too.”

Hello, Iris,

Welcome back to Beyond Romance! I love your covers.

Is Alinta Bay based on a real place?

Iris B said...

Lisabet, Alinta Bay is a made-up place along the Great Ocean Road, but Apollo Bay which is mentioned occasionally is real :-)
