I write hot passionate contemporary romances, full of love and laughter. Happy endings are guaranteed - but my heroes and heroines sometimes have to travel very rocky roads to reach them.
Don't pick up a Kris Pearson expecting a mild read. These are sizzling stories for adult readers - but you can tell that from the covers and titles.
All my books are now available for Kindle from Amazon, and for a variety of other e-readers through Smashwords, or direct from the iTunes stores, Barnes & Noble, Kobo etc.
FAMOUS! No, not really. But my novel The Boat Builder's Bed received a mention in The Guardian, right down the end beside Amanda Hocking:
The Boat Builder's Bed hit the number one free contemporary romance spot on iTunes USA, iTunes UK, iTunes Australia and iTunes Canada all in the same week, and it's still doing well. It's one of my 'Wicked in Wellington' series. These books are linked by their setting in my hometown, the capital city of New Zealand. I've put a couple of Wellington harbor photos on my About page for you.
Biggest news is the launch of 'Her Man with Iceberg Eyes' - which is set in Queenstown, a winter sports resort way down in the south of New Zealand. See the photos of Queenstown on the book's page. It's the first of my Heartland Heroines series - the girls who live in the beautiful kiwi countryside.
Kate wants a new life, with no bad memories. Matthew wants a competent helper for famous painter Lottie - but he doesn't trust Kate in his home because she's the daughter of a business rival. So what really gives? And why can't they leave each other alone? Fun will follow!
I've already had some really nice reviews for this book, and it has roared up to the number fifteen romance slot in at least one of the iTunes stores. (Taken by the Sheikh is at number nine. I'm having a nice week.)
And what else is new? My website!
Yes, it looks a lot like the old one, but my clever designer, Heath, has added some extra features - including background pages for each of the books. If you click on the covers you'll be able to see extra info and photos.
What am I working on now?
The second in my Sheikhs of Al Sounam series. Desired by the Sheikh is Stacy and Akil's story. She's a pastrycook from New Zealand, determined to get some help from the King of Al Sounam for her injured brother, David. A letter she found addressed to her mother leads her to believe David is the king's son. Naughty old mum! How did she get to meet the king all those years ago?
Stacy is admired by Sheikh Akil while she's playing beach volleyball. She has no idea who he is, but she accepts his offer of a job at the palace in an effort to meet the king. What she doesn't know is that the king and queen are due to depart for the old royal hunting lodge in the desert - and Akil rather thought he might keep Stacy for his personal pleasure while they're out of the way...
I'm really having fun with this one, and I'm also setting up book three in the series, so progress is steady rather than rapid. I've found a great shot for the cover though. I have it pinned up next to my computer for inspiration.
