Scarlet Bay – where passions run deep, and surely everyone deserves a summertime treat? Lawyer Josslyn Wynn secretly yearns for a husband and family, but a shocking accident made children impossible, and her sharp manner and workaholic lifestyle make landing a man unlikely.
When Cameron Mackay ran out on Jossy’s pregnant housemate, Jossy fought for a Protection Order to prevent him from seeing his son. She couldn’t forgive him for throwing away something she wanted so deeply herself but could never have.
When they meet at a dinner party, his knowing grin and sexy suggestions scrape over her soul like sandpaper. He's impossible to ignore - a big, bold predator on the hunt.
It sticks in Cam’s gut to be forced to play nice with the bitter, beautiful lawyer, but soon he sees he must re-assess everything he assumed about her, and everything he thought he wanted in his own casual, free-wheeling life.
Summer Secrets is the second of the billionaire Wynn family beach holiday books, and is sexy, heartwarming and funny. Intended for mature audiences.

About the Author
Hello - thanks for coming to see me. I love words, and I use them to make the world a happier place by creating people who are perfect for each other – although maybe they can’t see that to start with! I began writing at my local radio station in New Zealand. After living in Italy and London I returned home and worked in TV, radio again, several advertising agencies, and then spent happy years as a retail ad manager. Totally hooked on fabrics, I followed this by surprising everyone and going into business with my husband as a curtain installer and working for some of the capital city’s top designers. Good for my body, and it freed up my brain to write fiction. In twenty years I haven’t fallen off my ladder once through drifting into romantic dreams, but I’ve certainly seen many beautiful homes and met wonderful people, and I may just have stolen glimpses of them for the books. (I didn’t say that, did I?) If you love contemporary romance in exotic settings, that’s what I write. They're mostly sexy stories about couples who fall in love and into bed along the way, just like real people do. I’m the author of sixteen novels, three of which were finalists in New Zealand’s Clendon Award. Each can be read as a stand-alone, but some make up linked series. I hope you enjoy them all. My most recent novels are billionaire beach stories about the wealthy Wynn family in Scarlet Bay - Summer Sparks, Summer Secrets, and Summer Spice.

Se trata de historias sensuales sobre parejas que, a medida que avanza la trama, se enamoran y acaban en la cama, exactamente como en la vida real. Cuando hace buen tiempo se dedica a trabajar en el jardín y si llueve, a escribir, y cuando está inspirada y no puede dejar de escribir, el jardín puede cuidar de sí mismo. Es redactora publicitaria y decoradora especializada y autora de "La cama del constructor de barcos", de la que se descargaron gratis más de un millón de copias en inglés, lo que permitió dar a conocer su trabajo e impulsar las ventas de todas sus demás novelas. Precisamente ahora, la versión española de esta novela se encuentra disponible gratis para los lectores de habla hispana, así que descargaos una copia ya. - http://www.krispearson.es

ARC for honest review with no compensation Hard to Resist is Book 2 in the Scarlet Bay series and again Kris Pearson has written another great book about loss, misunderstandings, heart break, steamy sex, sparks flying and a whole bunch more! ! Jossy, a beautiful but scarred (on the inside) lawyer meets Cam, a sexy, hunk of man at a dinner party when they realize that they have a past that has lots of preconceived judgements about each other. Sparks fly between them but can they put the past judgements to rest and find the real people they are inside or will those judgments take them down a path they cannot return from??
Hard to Resist by Kris Pearson Scarlet Bay #2 Lawyer Josslyn Wynn invites her sister and sister’s boyfriend to dinner and asks them to bring a friend for her. When Cameron Mackay, a person she is litigating against for a client, turns up the interactions at dinner are a disaster in many ways…and yet…the two are also very attracted to one another. Well, as often happens, two people who think they have nothing in common find a lot they end up liking about one another and a romance of sorts ensues…a steamy wonderful romance that provides the promise of a future that neither one reckoned on. This was a thought provoking story and a whole lot of fun to read. Thank you to the author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars
Huge skyrockets and gigantic storm-filled zigzags of electricity! Jossy rates this book perfectly in one single word....Stupendous!.....although she was talking about Cam at the time it also describes this book for me. Once again Kris Pearson has written a book that has everything: drama, misunderstandings, steamy sex, baggage from the past, interfering family members, passion and heartbreak all weaved beautifully in a story that has you gripped from the first page. Jossy and Cam meet unexpectedly at a dinner party and quickly realise they have a past that has left each with very firm preconceived ideas about the other.....but are any of these judgements right? No matter what they think they know about each other there is an uncontrollable attraction, even their verbal sparring at the first dinner party is complete with fireworks. Can they put their judgements aside long enough to get to know the 'real' Jossy and Cam or has their shared past got too much influence? I loved getting to know Jossy and Cam, having read the first book in this series I knew there were going to be fireworks....but fireworks is an understatement - another hit for the Scarlet Bay series, I loved every page and cannot wait for book 3. I was sent an advance copy of this book for honest review, the views here are entirely my own.
