Rescuing Nick is the sweeter edition of Kris Pearson’s Resisting Nick. No swearing, less sex, but still plenty of flirting.
A man with a shattered soul becomes total temptation for a girl with a marshmallow heart. Fitness center entrepreneur Nick Sharpe is under siege. His business is going ballistic and his PA has left without giving notice. He’s offered to donate bone marrow to his desperately ill niece and been told he’s not genetically compatible. Not related. Reeling from the shock of finding he was adopted, Nick has no patience left for his new temp, Samantha – however much she attracts him or rubs him up the wrong way.
Sammie Sherbourne’s sure she can cope with her demanding new boss for the next week or two. Finally free to spread her very cramped wings after a long family crisis, she wants a short-term job until her passport arrives so she can follow her travel dreams. But the possibility she might hold the key to unlock Nick’s true identity eats at her – far more than his money or spectacular body do.
About the Author
New Zealander Kerri has been a spinner of stories since childhood. She worked first as a writer for radio, then in the wider advertising industry, and now devotes herself to romantic fiction. She enjoys sharing her beautiful country with the world, and creates stories full of real people in believable situations. Three of her many novels were finalists in New Zealand’s Clendon Award. Perhaps you already know her as Kris Pearson (her real name.) If your reading preference is clean language and to keep the bedroom door further closed, these new sweeter editions might be just what you’d enjoy. They're the same basic stories – fun and flirty. You’ll still know what’s going on, but your imagination will have to supply the details. Does that sound fair? So far the first five Wellington books have been re-written as the ‘Hearts around the Harbor’ series. If they sell well, then Kerri has a lot more work ahead of her. She’s a keen gardener, a Soroptimist, sometimes a painter, and co-ordinator of the local romance writers' meetings in her home city of Wellington, but she'll find time!
