Hard To Regret - Scarlet Bay Book 1

Opposites attract

Heiress Anna Wynn is hiding a secret – a secret that has blighted half her life and forced her to become an unfulfilled over-achiever. Even preparing for her wealthy family’s summer break in their idyllic New Zealand holiday house, Anna has to be all business and is strung tight as piano wire. Finding her bedroom appropriated by an over-muscled, overbearing, testosterone-soaked tower of annoyance is the final straw.

Dragged up under the callused thumb of his dirt-poor father, Jason Jones regrets his choice of security over his dream. His ambition to work as a freelance photographer has been ruthlessly supressed in favour of setting up his own construction company. He has a pre-Christmas deadline looming on the current project, and the last thing he needs is constant surveillance by the owner’s sharp-tongued daughter – or the lure of her hot body and big blue eyes.

Forced to endure each other’s company in the small-town beach house, mutual frustration and undeniable chemistry pull Anna and Jason together for a few stolen days. Enemies become lovers – but how long before secrets are revealed that will change everything?

HARD TO REGRET is the first in my new Scarlet Bay series of sexy, funny and heart-warming romance novels and is intended for mature readers.

Love, love, LOVE this book! 5 stars on Amazon

on November 10, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition A fantastic start to Kris Pearson's new series..... not a huge surprise as I have not read a bad one yet!

I fell completely for both Anna and Jason, they are quirky, defensive, traumatised, both carrying far more baggage than any one person should and are completely perfect for each other, if only they could avoid the judgement and censure of their parents. They both grow in confidence with support of the other and quickly realise they are far stronger and happier together.....but are they strong enough to stand together and fight against everything their parents and society throw at them? Can they work together to bury some of that baggage and plan a future, together?

I cannot wait for the next in this series.......I am expecting lots of fireworks!

HARD TO RESIST - Scarlet Bay Book 2

Fireworks from the moment they meet...

Lawyer Josslyn Wynn secretly yearns for a husband and family, but a shocking accident made children impossible, and her sharp manner and workaholic lifestyle make landing a man unlikely. When Cameron Mackay ran out on Jossy’s pregnant housemate, Jossy fought for a Protection Order to prevent him from seeing his son. She couldn’t forgive him for throwing away something she wanted so deeply herself but could never have.

Because Cam was the opposing client in the court case, she should have nothing to do with him, but when they meet at a dinner party, his knowing grin and sexy suggestions scrape over her soul like sandpaper and she finds him impossible to ignore.

It sticks in Cam’s gut to be forced to play nice with the bitter, beautiful lawyer, but soon he sees he must re-assess everything he assumed about her, and everything he thought he wanted in his own casual, free-wheeling life.

Can Cam save Jossy? Or will Jossy save Cam?

TOP 500 REVIEWERon November 4, 2017Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase

OMG I LOVED THIS STORY. I love a book that grabs me in the first paragraph and holds on tight to the very end. I was one of the millions that downloaded THE BOAT BUILDER'S BED and I have been a HUGE van of Ms. Pearson ever since. She writes a GREAT hero, usually a working man but a sense of humor, a great body and TERRIFIC in bed. The heroines are smart, independent and sexy as heck. The story always takes you in and you start believing these people are real, the surroundings exist and you want to be friends with them just to be a part of their wonderful existence. I absolutely adore this author.

It is definitely about these two discovering they don't really know as much as they think they do. Judging without all the facts, or facts that you think are true but aren't is not a good thing. lessons for us all. The story is about how they find a way to each other. A great romance and his determination to get what he truly wants. She is hiding a dark secret that is more her own emotional problem than an issue for him. You have to love this guy, all 6'3" of him. He is fun, sexy as all get out, determined and loving. OMG I could just eat him up!! Boy if New Zealand were really full of these kinds of guys I would be moving!!

Taken by the Sheikh

Come away somewhere exotic!

Abducted. Seduced. Purring. Laurel de Courcey is captured by terrorists, chained up in a disgusting bunker, and videoed for a ransom demand which is shown worldwide. Ooops - wrong hostage! Who'd expect a shy Kiwi nanny to be worth anything?

Laurel's soon tied up in Sheikh Rafiq's bed instead, because he rescues her and appoints himself her personal bodyguard. Very personal. But she has good reason to distrust men.

Imprisoned in his old royal hunting lodge deep in the desert 'for her own protection', Laurel rebels. Spectacular fireworks, dangerous escape attempts, and an impossible love affair follow.

Warning: Contains one red-hot Sheikh with a wicked tongue and unlimited stamina.

CJ Douglas says 'This is a terrific read! You are caught up in the action from the first page - real thriller movie action which is authentic and engrossing. Rafiq, the Sheikh, is no caricature Rudolf Valentino. Laurel, the heroine, is an appealing mix of innocence and fiesty spirit. There's a back story of genuine interest, which is woven skilfully into the main narrative.'
62 reviews on with a 4.5 star average.

Desired by the Sheikh

The second in the Sheikhs of Al Sounam series

Kiwi cook Stacy is hell-bent on gaining advanced medical treatment for her beloved half-brother David or he may never walk again. An unexpected letter has revealed his father is a Middle Eastern king – with money to burn, and surely an interest in keeping David’s existence a secret? Stacy heads to Al Sounam intent on blackmail.

Crown Prince Akil bin Khalid knows his fate. As the king’s oldest son he must marry for political reasons. No suitable woman has yet intrigued him, but surely he can indulge in a final fling?

The handsome sheikh is intensely attracted to this enchanting and unsuitable foreign girl, but by inviting her back to the palace is he endangering his family, his country, his inheritance, and his heart?

Warning: Secrets and lies, rubies and spies, and a sheikh with a huge four-poster bed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Irresistible

Kris Pearson is one of my favorite romance authors. I loved her first Sheikh, 'Taken by the Sheikh', and I couldn't wait to read this one. I must say I wasn't disappointed. Once I started, I couldn't put it down and now I need to know when the next one will be published!

Resisting Nick

A man with a shattered soul becomes total temptation for a girl with a marshmallow heart.

Fitness center entrepreneur Nick Sharpe is under siege. His business is going ballistic and his PA has left without giving notice. He’s offered to donate bone marrow to his desperately ill niece and been told he’s not genetically compatible. Not related. Reeling from the shock of finding he was adopted, Nick has no patience left for his new temp, Samantha – however much she attracts him or rubs him up the wrong way.

Sammie Sherbourne’s sure she can cope with her demanding new boss for the next week or two. Finally free to spread her very cramped wings after a long family crisis, she wants a short-term job until her passport arrives so she can follow her travel dreams. But the possibility that she might hold the key to unlock Nick’s true identity eats at her – far more than his money or spectacular body do.

Warning: Contains sexy games in beds, bathrooms, and on balconies.

Rocketed up the itunes charts in the USA, Canada, the UK and Australia.
'Oh my gosh. Love this author. Clever writing, hot sex, interesting plot. Didn't think I could like it as much as The Boat Builder's Bed, but I did.' Five stars on Amazon, Anny Mousse.

Hot for You - games for two

'Hot for You' is a lot of sexy romantic fun. Naughty all the way - like Fifty Shades of Grey.

She’s made him an offer he can’t refuse – or can he? Cody Mitchell has been planning a hot little love affair with his best friend’s widow – the woman he’s wanted for three long years. But he finds Melanie’s acceptance comes with outrageous conditions. She considers him only a stallion with suitable bloodlines to provide her with children.  Cody had a no-strings, no-kids fling in mind, but Mel wants his DNA every bit as much as she wants his desirable body. Who’ll win this battle of the bedroom – the handsome pilot or the feisty airline heiress?

WARNING: Hot pilot, willing widow, very high stakes.

Now with 'Ravishing Rose' free at the end.

Melting His Heart

A wintertime romance in New Zealand

Kate Pleasance needs to flee her home city of Auckland and create a new life away from family stress and infidelity. Might the advertisement seeking a ‘Superwoman’ be her answer? Short-listed, she’s flown to the vibrant winter tourist resort of Queenstown at her prospective employer’s expense. Snow is dusting the mountain tops as the jet glides in, and she’s shocked to be collected by tall, dark internet billionaire, Matthew McLeod. Where is the woman she spoke with on the phone? 

Kate is driven first to hospital to meet his injured sister, and then to their magnificent home to stay the night. Lottie is a world-famous painter, and Kate craves the job as her assistant, but she’s totally unsettled by charismatic Matthew who teases her unmercifully. Knowing she’s dangerously attracted, she vows to refuse the job, should it be offered, and run like hell.

After a disastrous first marriage, Matthew has lived in a freezing void. His duplicitous ex-wife chose him for his money, and when she tried to blackmail him he swiftly divorced her and swore off future entanglements. He’s buried himself in his work to keep the demons at bay, but now there’s a potent new threat tearing at his resolve.

Although she’s plainly diving for cover, job-seeker Kate is dragging his ruthlessly supressed emotions back to the surface. Temptation he’s easily shrugged off in the past now eats him alive. Can he persuade her to stay long enough to fan the smouldering sparks between them until they burst into white-hot flames?

Warning: Contains one tall tortured man who's super-talented in bedrooms and boardrooms.

Kris Pearson - I adore your work! Melting His Heart was absolutely fabulous!

If you are a reader who enjoys picturesque landscape descriptions, believable, realistic dialogue, captivating storyline, and sensual sex scenes, talented New Zealand author Kris Pearson is for you.


5.0 out of 5 stars love kris always, 16 Sep 2013By C. Andrews (grimsby england)   Again another good read from kris and she never disappoints, I have read most of her wellington series and when i saw this i couldnt wait to get stuck in, her books are all happily ended but with bumps in the road toward that ending with both strong characters and good back ground stories, this lived up to the others, good characters with a touch of jumping to conclusions due to family connections and romance which never hurts a book, as always can never put her books down.

Christmas Holiday Hearts

In this heart-wrenching holiday romance, a devastating fire ruins school-teacher Ellie McKenna’s rented apartment. Now she urgently needs a temporary home and a few weeks’ work to get her life back on track. A short term Christmas contract tutoring twin daughters on a huge coastal farm sounds ideal – until, too late, she meets the billionaire owner.

Ellie’s dream job turns into her worst nightmare once she discovers the man she’ll be working for is her long-ago holiday fling. He gave her the hottest memories of her life – and a son he knows nothing about. Now she’s trapped on beautiful Wharemoana Estate, torn away from her wonderful boy while she tries to resist his still-so-tempting father. 

Tony Robinson is grieving and guilt-stricken after the slow death of his unsuitable wife. He’s shocked to see the temporary teacher is the beautiful holiday lover he’s never forgotten… that he’s been given a second chance to romance the woman he should never have lost touch with. To his displeasure he finds that although their fierce attraction still rages red-hot, she’s determined to keep him out of her life.

Ellie fights him any way she can, but Tony is so much more of a man now – and could undoubtedly steal Callum away with his wealth and power. She knows he’d love a son after having two daughters. An older son who’s the absolute image of him. Concealing her secret baby’s existence gets harder and harder as the long summer days grind by.

Warning: The earth definitely moves - in more ways than one.

This is the second in my Heartlands series, and you'll get a glimpse of what happened to Kate and Matthew from Melting His Heart.

Once again, Kris Pearson doesn't disappoint. Got all her novels and I love them. I read them over and over again. Great characters, great story and lots of yummy cuddles. Hmmmmm....

Cowboy Wants Her Heart

Meet Rory and Alfie - the third of three hot couples from my Heartlands Series.

Shy Kiwi heiress Alfrieda Hamlin is reduced to shocked silence when her hateful grandfather announces she’s to marry within a month – to a man she’s never met. Then she yells blue murder because there’s no way she’ll give her body to a stranger, or have her expected freedom and inheritance stolen away.

Exiled from his family for half his life, hard-living cowboy Rory Morrissey has been offered a deal: quit Texas, return to his birthplace, and embark on the delicate mission of convincing Alfie to take him as her husband. This will earn him a fresh start, respectability, and the chance of one hell of a farm. 

Rory has murder in his background and nothing to lose by accepting the challenge. The girl could be bearable. Perhaps they can outwit the old man and split things amicably? Or maybe hell will freeze over first…

Alfie might be shy but she’s no pushover. When she learns about the succession deal being hatched between her autocratic grandfather and the handsome Texan stud, she rebels. With only one month to outwit the scheming duo, she throws caution to the wind and snuggles up to the man she’s been ordered to marry. After all, she needs to know her enemy if she expects to beat him at his own game.

Warning: Contains one hunky cowboy determined to ride down his heiress, hog-tie her, and bundle her into his bed.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Zealand - Land of Questionable Critters June 12, 2014

By Sebella Blue

This book was a big, fat paradox, both incredibly sweet and unbelievably sexy at the same time. Alfie couldn't have been any greener if she had been raised by nuns. Despite the fact that she works with livestock and is well aware of what goes where.

Rory, the ex-pat Kiwi, who now hails from Texas, actually saved Alfie when a cave weta fell down her shirt. For this he deserves all the sex, and land that he could ever want. Not only did he remove the weta, he put it back in the cave so that it wouldn't die in the sunlight. I love this cowboy. With all his shucks, and darlings, he was just too, too yummy. He was also a very dirty cowboy, and I'm not talking trail dust, nosireebob! He gives Alfie some hands on training in animal husbandry. *snort*
This was a well written, quick but satisfying romance. I think the whole weta incident pretty much put the kibosh on any future trips to New Zealand, so I guess I'll have to rely on more books from Kris to satisfy my wanderlust. Nice, job, Ms. Pearson, I enjoyed the ride.

But Fiona has leave from her cruise-liner job and seems determined to do her family duty. Passion and temptation simmer between them as they get to know each other again. This sensual feel-good romance novel is heart-warming, steamy and bittersweet. How can craving the wrong sister feel so right?

WARNING: Contains one hot man who knows how to get what he wants.


A lovely comment I found on my Facebook page from reader Phalbe

I have read 81% of The Wrong Sister. I read a while. Quit for a while. Read for a while. They're at the river now. I'm scared to death to reach the end. I couId spend the rest of my life reading it and never get tired of it. No matter how it ends, I'll be bereft when I finish it.

Ravishing Rose

One shy girl is about to start living!

Francesca Ellison is swept off to an A-list party in a concealing mask, a decadent costume and sex-shop panties. There she meets the pirate, Captain Cool. Frankie tells him her name is Rose because for once she intends behaving very badly. The Captain outdoes her at every turn.

As sky-rockets scream skyward and guests start to demolish the party venue, Frankie loses her panties and her inhibitions. ‘Rose’ is thoroughly ravished, and the Captain gets more (and less) than he hoped for.

‘I loved it and even though I know it's just a novella I wanted it to go on longer. I want more! lol. Anyways, great piece. I started reading while at work and couldn't put it down - just had to sneak in. Very difficult if you're working in a hospital.’
Five stars from Jazzielady.

Out of Bounds

Jetta Rivers has inherited half a house. Big problem: she has to share it with co-owner Anton Haviland, and her past has left her terrified of men. Gorgeous Anton is a confident sexy architect, and he might be exactly who Jetta needs to put her crippling fear to rest. But can she allow him near enough? And would he even want to try? After a midnight disaster he drags her off to the only bed left in the now-damaged house.

She’s appalled to find she craves the man who plans to smash her inheritance to pieces. Anton is equally shocked when his sharp-tempered housemate attempts to seduce him.

Warning: Contains one ambitious man with a body to die for. And one unlikely temptress with an ancient copy of The Joy of Sex.

'Beautifully done and wonderfully written. Great dialogue and character growth. I highly recommend Out of Bounds for the multi-layered character development, the sexiness of Anton and an old house that was destined to bring two unlikely people together. Bravo Ms. Pearson.
5 Smiles and a recommended read.' (Love, Laughter Friendship Blog.)

Seduction on the Cards

Gamble on this goodie!

When journalist Kerri is assigned to interview a seriously rich anti-gambling crusader, she imagines a grandfatherly tycoon with a comb-over. But hunky Alex Beaufort has plenty of hair - and enough of everything else to make her mouth water.

Irrepressible Kerri decides to find out exactly how much, and a sizzling game of strip-poker soon has them both peeling off their layers of self-protection. Seduction is definitely on the cards - but who's seducing who? And what are the odds? Good enough to take a chance on?

Warning: Contains sexy Frenchman, tropical heat, and enthusiastic outdoor fun and games.

Seductive and Steamy!
'Seduction on the Cards' is a fast-paced, steamy read that had me totally engrossed from beginning to end. I enjoyed the sprinkling of humor and Alex is simply the sexiest French hero ever. Loved it - can't wait for this author's next book, I'm hooked.'

Santa Claws - A Christmas novella

From dark start to delicious ending, this unusual Christmas tale is romantic and uplifting. Nothing will ever be the same again after Jeff is accused of threatening to murder his wife. Or Evie is bruised one time too many by her abusive boyfriend. Or Santa Claws the cat starts howling under the house.

This delightfully different novella brings eventual happiness for everyone – including added joy for Christian and Fiona who you first met in my novel THE WRONG SISTER. Come and spend a sunny summer Christmas in Wellington, New Zealand. You could even adopt a kitten….


5 Stars  Highly recommended.

What a great holiday read. Jeff and Evie are colleagues with similar difficulties. With awful timing, both of their relationships break down right on Christmas. Combining forces because of a immediate need to find somewhere, anywhere, to stay, Jeff and Evie doss down in an untenanted house. In lieu of rent, they agree to do up the house while they each sort out their respective relationship problems. Of course, since this is a romance, a relationship grows, love blossoms and the true simplicity of Christmas secures that feel-good factor.

This is the ideal, relaxing holiday read. Not too short, not too long but just right, Ms Pearson is at her storytelling best.

I read these books as standalones and wrote reviews for them. I felt like I needed to just add my vote on this site as well. I LOVE Ms. Pearson's writing. You get a trip to New Zealand while you get a great love story. Boy gets girl is usually all they have in common. Each story stands on its own merit. Once you read one you will move right on to the next one. She has series books but they are all standalone and they all end happily ever after. No cliffhangers. They are hot as a firecracker so be prepared for that. it fits right in with the story and just like life really is so I have truly enjoyed everyone of her reads. I have 11 and each one encourages me to buy the next one. Truly great reads and I definitely recommend them.

Short and Sweet - 19 New Zealand Romances

There seem to be fewer and fewer short stories in magazines these days, and I think that's a shame. To redress the balance a little, I’ve gathered together my three collections, added four new stories, and have republished them as a bumper collection of nineteen. Some have appeared in mass-market magazines, some have been produced for radio. Most have been contest winners or finalists.

They’re all tender stories guaranteed to make your heart beat a little faster and show that romance can flourish in the most unlikely places. For an extra-romantic touch, I've chosen the garden of The Mission House (also known as Kemp House) as the cover picture. This is the oldest existing European building in New Zealand, and sometimes used as a wedding venue.

Short stories are an art in themselves, and I really love writing them. Sometimes they capture only a moment of life... just a small situation that might have unexpected significance. 'Deamboats' is exactly this - a few minutes of my own family's history that I wove into an entirely different scenario. I hope you enjoy them all.


Short and sweet By Luckystarz
I gave this collection of short stories 5 stars because the author made me believe these characters could be real people. All of them covered different moments in life. I'd recommend them to anyone looking for a little romance.
