I’m glad you’ve come to visit, and I hope you have fun!

You can learn more about the books here, of course—but this is also the place to check out the beautiful New Zealand locations you’ve read about, listen to Maori waiata (songs), watch rugby players doing their thing (or, let’s face it, just looking good), and find out why Kiwis are known for their sense of humor.

I hope the books, and the site, have brought a taste of New Zealand and a little extra romance into your life. Because we all deserve a bit of fun and a dash of spice now and then! Thanks for visiting and reading—I appreciate each one of you—and be sure to check out my Facebook and Twitter posts for even more good stuff.
