The Devil Wears Prada meets Man vs Wild in this fast-paced romantic comedy set in the no-holds-barred world of travel journalism. When Ella Jameson steps into a room, people scramble to attention. She’s ruthless, terrifying, and untouchable — and very, very successful as Editor-in-Chief of Australia’s top travel magazine. Then Ryan Edwards, adventure traveller, walks into her office with an unexpected job proposal, and Ella just knows he’s going to be trouble. As far as she’s concerned, the man’s a self-indulgent, kamikaze, adrenaline-junkie with an authority complex — and he’s also infuriatingly sexy! The idea of them working together is ludicrous, but the opportunity to co-host a new travel show is just too good to refuse. As she is swept from her world of inner-city glamour into a nightmare of camping, crocodiles, and outback adventures, Ella’s feelings for Ryan begin to heat up, and her walls start to come down. In the tropical beauty of Australia’s Top End, it’s not just the weather that’s going to sizzle... Praise for GETTING WILD: 'This was such a sweet and endearing read, yet so engaging you don’t want to put it down.' — The Book Reading Gals 'The voice and life of the characters are defined very early, so I just sat back to enjoy the very fun ride through the Australian Outback!' — Must Read Books or Die
Secrets Of Whitewater Creek
Secrets of Whitewater Creek was previously published as Deadly Secrets. Whoever said small towns have no secrets didn't know about this one... Born and bred on the land, Jordan Windcroft is tough. She's had to be. Her life revolves around running her property almost single-handedly on next to no money, and waiting out her four years of probation — a rap that she took for one of her closest friends. But there's an end to her problems in sight. Jordan’s probation period is almost up, and if she can just make the cattle sale, there’s a chance she can pull herself out of more than ten years of serious debt and keep her precious farm. The last thing she needs is for Reid Easton to walk into town. Detective Senior Sergeant Reid Easton drives into Whitewater Creek on a mission to wrap up a three-year drug investigation; his only lead, Jordan Windcroft. The attraction between the two is immediate, but Reid is undercover and Jordan has a secret she can’t risk him discovering. Neither will jeopardise their cause, not for something as transitory as love.

Her mother-in-law’s isolated farm gives her the opportunity to pull her life back together and get herself back on her feet. Four years after fleeing the city and the scandal that ruined his career, disgraced lawyer Cameron Blakely has a successful new business and a new life. When his neighbour, Mavis Littleton is diagnosed with a terminal illness he volunteers to handle her affairs – and her farm until her daughter-in-law arrives to take over. When Alissa finally shows up, he’s drawn to her immediately. But there’s more to his new neighbour than her big blue eyes and lost expression. If only she’ll open up and let him in. But there are secrets in both Alissa’s past and Hunters Ridge – secrets that jeopardise far more than Cameron’s fledgling feelings. Lurking in the isolated wilderness is a danger that neither anticipates – but one that threatens everything: the town, their love, and their lives.

The intensity and rocking pace of Promise of Hunters Ridge, which is the third and last in the Hunters Ridge trilogy had me holding my breath while I sped through the terror and courage of this novel! What an amazing ride! Romantic suspense; heavy on the suspense – just the way I love it! Highly recommended.' — Brenda Telford, Netgalley 'Every element of this series has had me hooked from the first page of the first book. I’ve enjoyed the entire ride, the romantic ups and downs, the way in which the suspense element has kept me on the edge of my seat during each book, wondering how it was finally going to end…and then the kind of foreshadowing in this book, that tells you there’s really only two ways it can end. The ending was awesome and lived up to every expectation I had…..which were pretty high, given the past 2 books!' — Bree Testa, Netgalley 'I feel at bit speechless with this one it truly is absolutely fabulous the strength and courage that Mia shows had me cheering her on and crying for her as well and Ben what a hero to die for he goes to such painful lengths to keep her safe that pull them apart but when they eventually get closer again with the help of friends and family there will be tears again. I loved the depth of these characters in this story getting to know them and feeling like they are close friends is amazing. The end of this book is amazing it will knock your socks off. I loved, loved this story and this series thank you MS Barrie for another keeper way to go. I would really love to see Indy get her own story' — Helen Sibbritt, Netgalley 'Incredible conclusion to the trilogy though now I want a book about Indi. The pace is brilliant, the suspense insane.
