I was born in Australia but have spent the last ten years dividing my time between England and New Zealand. When I'm not moving, I like to write books (okay, I also like to watch television, eat chocolate, and sit around doing not much, but let's just keep that between ourselves, shall we?). I have a degree in English and journalism from the University of Queensland and am married with two young children. My debut book, You Had Me At Halo was nominated for a Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award and I now write young adult and mid grade books for Puffin.
What's worse than running into your ex-hookup at the airport? When said 'hookup" is the best man for the most important wedding of your career, and he's on the hunt for a fake girlfriend. Between a hysterical bride and a wedding party gone wild, wedding planner Emmy Watson can’t afford any more disasters if she wants to save her beloved Wishing Bridge Farm. Which is why she puts the best man on lockdown. Unfortunately, he also happens to be the one guy who can make her forget everything except the way his kisses make her feel.
All Christopher Henderson needs is a fake girlfriend to convince his bosses that his bad boy reputation is a thing of the past so he can land his dream job. What better place to find said companion than at a wholesome vintage wedding. The only thing he didn't count on was seeing Emmy, the woman who dumped him. The one he hasn’t been able to get off his mind.
There's no denying the spark between them, but he’s a globetrotter and she’s a homebody, and falling in love is something neither of them has in their plans.
From Amanda Ashby, author of the charming contemporary romance Dating the Guy Next Door, comes an all new story of a fake relationship that might not be so fake after all...
LIARS OR LOVERS?
Young librarian Riley Harris has always maintained her independence, leaving the drama of love to anyone silly enough to fall for it. Her Jane Austen novels are as close as she cares to get to “true love.” Luckily, her handsome upstairs neighbor—and landlord—Will Henderson feels the same way.
Since his ex-fiancé crushed his heart, Will devotes himself to charity in an effort to atone for the misdeeds of his wealthy, ruthless father. So when Will needs a date for his brothers high-society wedding, he asks Riley to be his faux girlfriend.
After a spontaneous kiss throws both Riley and Will for a loop, they find themselves fighting their mutual pride and prejudice against love. And when Riley is rocked by something from Will's past, both will need to decide whether to follow their heads or their hearts...
From the author of You Had Me at Halo, comes the first in a new contemporary romance series where a woman must decide between her own fears and true love.
Kate Mitchell is finished with love. After a recent relationship disaster, she's had it. Sure, she's noticed her smoking hot new neighbor, Matt Hunter, moving into the converted warehouse next door. But she resolves to keep her fantasies just that.
But fantasy becomes reality when he shows up in her gallery. Matt is a logical, meticulous type while Kate's more of a fly-by-night free spirit. And she won't allow herself to be led into another relationship—especially not with someone who wants to start a family. She can't do that.
Still, even Kate can't deny Matt’s charm, and soon realizes she's falling for him hard. If she tells him she won't have a baby, she'll break his heart. But if she doesn't, she might break her own...
