About the Author

Trish Morey wrote her first book at age 11 for a children's book-week competition. Entitled Island Dreamer, it tells the story of an orphaned girl and her life on Hindmarsh Island— a small island at the mouth of the Murray River— and was totally self-published. She wrote, illustrated and stitched the pages together herself (her earliest and least successful experience with body piercing!). Island Dreamer was also to be her first rejection— her entry was disqualified unread because she'd transposed the copyright and title pages. This rejection had a devastating effect on the young writer's psyche. Shattered and broken, she turned to a life where she could combine her love of fiction with her need for creativity. You guessed it— Trish became a chartered accountant.

Life wasn't all dull, though, as she embarked on a skydiving course, completing three jumps before deciding that she'd given her fear of heights a run for its money and it was time to retire her parachute and hang around on terra firma for a while.

Prepared to set the financial world alight, Trish moved from her native Adelaide to Canberra, where she promptly fell in love with a handsome guy who cut computer code. Marriage followed a few years later, along with a stint in Wellington, New Zealand, where Trish worked for the NZ Treasury. There she penned her second book— A Guide to Departmental Budgeting. It didn't have a huge print run and the royalties were nonexistent, but she'd learned something— the pages were at least stapled. Unfortunately, she never got to complete the surefire sequel and New York Times bestseller, Asset Management, as herhormones intervened witha healthy dose of motherhood.

Two years later and back home in Canberra after the birth of their second daughter, Trish spied an article announcing that Mills & Boon was actively seeking new authors. It was one of those "Eureka!" moments. Her whole life clicked into place and immediately she embarked on a professional writing course. She sent off a couple of partials, earned a couple of rejections, had a couple more daughters and even had a couple of feature articles published in the newspapers. Just so she wouldn't get bored, the family moved countries a couple more times. Their third daughter was born in Hemel Hempstead, England, by sheer coincidence, the same town Trish's aunt had been born some 70 years prior, before the family had emigrated to Australia.

Living in the UK offered more than just the chance to check out the NHS system, though, and the young family took the opportunity to explore farther afield, visiting France, Italy and even Crete, as well as many magical sites in the UK. Tintagel in Cornwall and Hadrian's Wall stand out as two of the highlights.

Back in Australia and now with four daughters, Trish knew it was time to get serious with her writing. She started entering the contests offered by Romance Writers of Australia, achieving third place in her first competition. More successes followed, along with closer involvement in RWA Australia. Trish managed three contests for RWA before serving on the RWA Executive in 2002-3 as conference coordinator, organizing the 2003 Gold Coast "Passion in Paradise" conference. Trish is currently vice president of RWA Australia.

In 2002 Trish entered the Romance Writers of America's Golden Heart contest for the first time and was amazed and delighted to final in the short contemporary section. The same manuscript was already under consideration in London, and in June 2003 (actually June 18th at 6:32 p.m.) the magical phone call came. Mills & Boon wanted to buy her book!

According to Trish, selling a book is a major life achievement that ranks up there with jumping out of an airplane and motherhood. All three take commitment, determination and sheer guts, but the effort is so very, very worthwhile.

Morgan and Tegan Fielding are twins and Morgan has asked her twin to fill in for her while she attends her friends wedding in Hawaii. However, there's a catch, since the boss won't give Morgan time off, Tegan must pose as her twin which shouldn't be a big deal because the boss is in Italy. Little do both women realize, the deal is on hold because of an illness so when James Maverick shows up at the office the next day, Tegan is blown away and tries to keep up the charade.---------- Immediately Maverick is drawn to his personal assistant as he watches her put on a pair of nylons....his buttoned up PA for some reason appeals to him out of the blue. There is something different about her, something sensual and he's going to explore the options. This man is sexy as sin, wealthy and handsome and has a goal.........not only to complete his business deal which would put his building development at the top for the next decade. His other priority is to find out why his PA suddenly appeals to him and to explore the possibilities. What does he have to loose or has he gone crazy? ----------- What neither Tegan nor Maverick count on is their mutual attraction for each other and let me tell you their story not only sizzles it will take you on their sensual journey, one you won't soon forget. Tegan fights her attraction for this man, every step of the way and Maverick is relentless in his pursuit even though he has a rule.....never again to get involved with his PA due to a past relationship where he was deceived. ----------- Tegan counts on her sister being gone for a week but when Morgan is hospitalized from an accident and she realizes she can't escape from the masquerade, she accepts she will be stuck working for the man. Her defenses against Maverick are shot to pieces, leaving her no choice but to give in to her desire for him. When he suggests an affair, Tegan gives in because she can't help herself. What she doesn't count on is falling for this sexy man and in the end, finding out she is carrying his child. What a mess! ----------- Again Trish Morey delivers an incredible story, with strong emotion and wonderful characters. It's a perfect holiday book and will make the reader really believe there is a Santa after all! -----------
