Four Romances in one Exotic Set

DESERT DESIRES
only .99

Love blossoms under the exotic desert sun 



ALWAYS YOU

Can love work the second time around?

Bea Morgan-Young always had excuses for her outrageous behaviour. In spite of Bea’s supportive brother and loving foster family, trouble just kept finding her. Even when Nigel Ashworth—Ash to his friends—had defended her, she’d only lashed out at him. When she runs into him ten years later, she’s settled down a bit, but still loves being the scandalous party girl, clubbing, and being the centre of attention. Though they’ve fallen in love, even his marriage proposal isn’t enough to make her compromise and move to Israel for Ash’s lucrative new job. Then one empowering weekend changes everything for Bea. Ash may be gone, but Bea’s determined to win him back. 


Ash is a master at solving problems for the hotels he works for, but he’s never solved the problem of Bea, the reckless wild child he’d fallen for. Now she’s back a year later, swearing she’s changed. Has the uncompromising party girl really grown up at last? Or is it just another lie when she tells him she wants a second chance at love?


FALLING FOR MR. WRONG 

When everybody’s got secrets, can love discover the truth?

All Tilly Walker wanted was a bit of independence from her overprotective family and small town life. But a high-profile scandal has turned her dream job into a nightmare, and Tilly's face is splashed over the front pages of the papers.

Now Tilly's on the run from the press. Her only ally is a handsome stranger, and Nate Morgan-Young quickly becomes the only one person she can rely on.

So what will happen when she learns Nate's secret? He’s a reporter. 

How will Nate convince Tilly he’s after more than just a smutty scandal? And for Tilly, why does it feel so right to be falling for Mr Wrong?

A MAGICAL CHRISTMAS IN JERUSALEM

When falling in love isn’t as easy as falling in love.

Australian project manager Kiara Lonsdale is career focussed and determined to provide and care for the grandmother who raised her. Taking time off work to vacation has never been high on her agenda, but this year she’s made an exception. She’s helping her gran fulfil a life-long dream by accompanying her on a Christmas to the Holy Land tour.

Jacques Lenoir and his extended family run tours in Israel and he’s committed to their business. Jacques feels responsible for his grandparents’ welfare since they risked their lives, and others’, as operatives in the French Resistance, during the War.

But over romantic dinners in the desert, camel rides, and mud baths at the Dead Sea, sparks fly between Kiara and Jacques. Will this only be a holiday romance or will a touch of Christmas magic make it last a lifetime?

ANOTHER MAGICAL CHRISTMAS IN JERUSALEM

He never wanted a family. She can’t live without hers. Can a dash of Christmas magic bring them together?

For Lucie Lenoir, being a tour guide in Jerusalem is part of the family business. And nothing means more to Lucie than family. She craves a child of her own, in spite of her infertility. Lucie has another secret desire: to be a romance novelist. But following that dream would be too disruptive to the family she adores.

Australian Tom Connor has come to Israel to attend a friend’s wedding and to pray for the healing of the one person he considers family, a woman who grew up with him in the foster care system. Along with surfing every day, Tom finds peace in helping troubled teens like he used to be.

The attraction between Lucie and Tom is instant and sizzling. In spite of their warm welcome, Tom finds Lucie’s big Christian family overwhelming. And he never wanted a child of his own. Can a man who never had a family and a woman who craves one write their own real-life Christmas romance?

READ A LITTLE, BUY THE SET

THE Q&A

ANGI: What’s your favorite thing about your book’s hero?
JOANNE:  This set has four heroes and they’re all unique and, devastatingly handsome. I love all my heroes but I have a soft spot for Tom Connor who’s a loner but able to overcome adversity, in such a positive and caring way. He’s just a to-die-for-romance-hero, and not because he’s handsome, stunning blue eyes and a hot bod from all the surfing he does ;)

ANGI: What’s your favorite movie of all time?
JOANNE: I don’t have one favourite movie, but I do love When Harry Met Sally, Casablanca and Gladiator.

ANGI: What’s your perfect day?
JOANNE: Any day that I don’t have to cook, clean, do laundry or grocery shopping ;) if I get taken out for a meal, see friends, or spend time with my family then I’m super happy J

ANGI: Salad or soup?
JOANNE: Salad J I love soup too but love salads, especially with roasted vegies, spices and quinoa.

ANGI: Would you put yourself in a Fairy Tale or Action Adventure?
JOANNE: Action adventure, especially if I had awesome fighting skills.

ANGI: Favorite TV rerun you watch every time you channel surf? 
JOANNE: Friends
ANGI: Favorite date night…fancy or at home? 
JOANNE: I work from home, so definitely a fancy night out, either as a family or date night with hubby!

ANGI: Champagne or Soda?
JOANNE:  Champagne :D

ANGI: Geek or Jock?
JOANNE: Geek…because it will complement my inner geek ;)

ANGI: The most daring thing you’ve ever done… Care to share?
JOANNE: I’m quiet and definitely not a party animal. For me, moving cities to date my boyfriend, who I later married was a massive step for me. I moved from my family and friends to a new city not knowing anyone.

ANGI’s GOTTA ASK:  Where is your favorite writing space & why?
JOANNE’S GOTTA ANSWER:  We’ve just renovated our home and just moved back in after 6 months. After years of writing on the kitchen table, I now have my own writing area and I love it. For Valentine’s Day, hubby bought me a wing-backed chair which is so beautiful and is the perfect place to hide away with tea, chocolate and a romance novel J

  2. No Coffee for me so it'd be Tea or Mt Dew with a 5 hr energy shot LOL
    I'm glad you asked IF we had one instead of What one it was
    I love any that are Extremely Hilarious (I want people to look at me weird because I'm Laughing Out Loud and they have no idea why because I read my books with a Bluetooth and the Kindle reading to me with the Free Text To Speech option LOL) or Ugly Cry
    I like ones too that are Childhood BFF's or Total Enemies and Then they GET Married and THEN have Kids

  4. I love marriage of convenience stories. I love coffee, tea and coke zero. I love to win a free book so I get the chance to read an author I've never read before. A giveaway is an awesome way to find a new author to add to my go to authors list and I haven't read one of your books yet. I just started reading again 16 months ago after decades of not reading. I'm now read over 12o books and being disabled with MS and being home almost 24/7/365 I'm aways up for a new adventure.

  9. Hello Joanne & Angi I love reading romances with HEA & No cheating�� Whether its Contemporary Historical Erotic or Paranormal and it doesn't matter if its a long story as long as its good and well crafted��

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Me too :) I also don't like cheating.

      However, in my latest book, Falling for the Best Man, I do have the heroine kissing someone when she's engaged. And then she has the difficult decision of who to marry - the one she loves, or the one who will provide stability and security to her :)

  10. My current favorite is probably friends to lovers, but with a good storyline I'll read just about anything once. I am a sucker for HEAs in any genre, whether it's a standalone or in a series.

    1. I've always loved friends to lovers and have used this trope a few times. It's probably why I love the movie, When Harry Met Sally :)

  14. Me too - I tend to like almost all romances. I'm not a huge fan of erotica/menage but in saying that, if it's well written with an engaging story line, I'll read it! :)

  15. I like going from enemies to lovers. It's fun to see people fall in love.

    I like tea. Coffee is too bitter tasting for me unless I put a LOT of sugar in it.
