⭐️It's Publication Day for Are You With Me!⭐️

Yes, it's here! Publication day for my brand new romance Are you With Me is here!

This story, set over four days at a fictional electronic dance music festival, was inspired by my own visit to my very first festival back in July - Tomorrowland in Belgium - and quite a few of the things that happened to us at Tomorrowland appear in this book: dancing in the rain; extreme weather; fabulous food... Let's put it this way, I did my research!

So, this story is very special to me, because it brings back a lot of memories of my time at Tomorrowland, a truly magical festival. It reminds me of what a very special place it is; how music can bring people together. It's a happy place. So this story is an uplifting one, and I just hope some of you out there enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it...

Book Blurb

Five people.
Five stories.
One festival…

After quitting his job, Markus arrives at Ethergy – one of Europe’s biggest electronic dance music festivals – with the realization that he’s come to a bit of a crossroads in his life. But he’s determined not to let reality get in the way of the weekend, that can wait until he gets back home, to Iceland. And after striking up a friendship with Sonny – the English girl who’s pitched her tent next to his – he begins to believe that this year’s Ethergy just might be the best one yet. He feels an instant connection with Sonny. She’s beautiful, but guarded, and he wants to get to know her more but she keeps pushing him away at every turn. Has he got time to make her feel that connection, too? Could they be more than just festival friends…?

Sonny has come to Ethergy – her first ever festival – alone. She wants to mark the beginning of the rest of her life, after escaping a controlling relationship, and despite feeling instantly comfortable in Markus’ company, it isn’t long before she’s putting those barriers back up that she thought she’d finally torn down. And she begins to wonder if she’ll ever really be free. But with the help of Markus, a new friend called Winter, and the magic of the festival, maybe she can be. Maybe…

Dutch DJ and producer Arne Vos has played Ethergy every year since the festival began. And this year he’s celebrating twenty-five years in the business by playing an epic eight-hour set on the final night of the festival. He should be having the time of his life, but what the outside world doesn’t know – doesn’t see – is that he’s struggling with the kind of self-doubt that’s caused him to suddenly start questioning everything from his career to his personal life.
He’s been in a relationship with Dutch-Belgian Techno/House DJ Elia Ida for a few years now. A rising star in the world of electronic dance music, Elia’s had to deal with people claiming she’s only with Arne because of who he is and what he can do for her, but they both know the truth. She doesn’t need Arne. It’s him who needs her, and that’s something Arne has trouble dealing with. That, and a past relationship Elia had with fellow DJ Magnus Jennsen, a.k.a. Magma. It got in the way, for a while, and it almost destroyed them all, but they got through it. Or maybe not, in Arne’s case. And with Magnus also playing Ethergy, and Elia still insisting he’ll always be her friend, can Arne continue to accept that? Or fight it. This year’s Ethergy is going to be a very different one for Arne, that’s for sure. In a way he can’t even begin to imagine…

For German couple Johan and Heidi, Ethergy is a very special place. They met there, five years ago. And they’ve been coming back as a couple ever since. But this year, Johan has something very special planned. He’s got it all mapped out in his head, the perfect moment, and Heidi’s going to love it. Isn’t she…?

Heid has an inkling that Johan has a surprise planned for this year’s Ethergy, after all, they have a lot to celebrate. Johan’s promotion. Moving in together. Their future, it’s an exciting one, and Heidi couldn’t be happier. Until she receives a phone call that turns everything they both thought they wanted upside down, in a heartbeat. And they only have the weekend to work it all out…

Can a festival really change your life?
For Markus, Sonny, Arne, Heidi and Johan, yes. It can. It did.
It changed theirs…

'Striker' & 'The First Christmas Without You' now available *FREE* with Kindle Unlimited!

I'm now pleased to announce that two of my books published through One More Chapter - a division of HarperCollins UK - are now available to read for *FREE* with Kindle Unlimited!


The two books are sexy soccer romance Striker, and Lapland-set The First Christmas Without You.



This is the first time any of my traditionally published books have been available with KU, so I'm curious to know how successful this is going to be, as it seems to work pretty well for my self-published books. But as these are books I wrote around six years ago it might take a little bit of a push to get people to notice them.

Striker was the first of three books in The Beautiful Game trilogy. Check out the blurb below...

Footballer's Wives meets Jackie Collins in this sizzling scorcher of a read!

Amber Sullivan is an ambitious, beautiful and feisty Sports reporter for a local TV news programme. With an ex-professional soccer player for a father, she's grown up in and around the world of Premiership football, and she knows better than to get mixed up with the men who play the game. 

One of the biggest names in football, Ryan Fisher is young, hot, and talented. He has it all - looks, fame, money, not to mention women falling at his over-insured feet and a lifestyle he's in no hurry to give up. At the centre of a multi-million-pound transfer deal back to his home club, Ryan's a big scoop for a local sports Journalist, and Amber can't afford to miss this career-making opportunity, even if that means having to interview a man whose ego is as big as his talent. But once the tape starts rolling it's clear Ryan's got more than just an exclusive on his mind... and he's used to getting exactly what he wants...

Delving into the lives of those who live and work within the so-called Beautiful Game, 'Striker' is a story of sex, secrets, and the true cost of fame...


The First Christmas Without You is an emotional but heartwarming story set in Lapland, and inspired by my own visit to Finnish Lapland a few years ago...

A story of love and hope at Christmas, this is a truly magical Lapland fairytale...



Jessie Collins has always wanted to visit Lapland. But this Christmas, more than any other, it's the place she feels she really needs to be as she tries to come to terms with a painful past, and a future she really needs to start living...


'Magical' -  Rachel's Random Reads

'A gorgeous book filled with hope' - Amazon Reviewer

'A wonderful Christmas story' - Love For Books

Both of these books are available to read for FREE with Kindle Unlimited through Amazon UK and Amazon AU. So, if you have KU, and you fancy either a new guilty-pleasure, or a moving Christmas read, click the links below to download your copy. And if you don't have Kindle Unlimited, both books are, at the moment, just 99p each!

⭐Are You With Me (Superstar DJ Series Book 2) - Release date & Pre-Order details!⭐

We might be hurtling head-first towards Winter, and dare I say it, Christmas, but I'm not one to bow to conformity, which is just as well because we're halfway to November and I'm about to release a book set at a music festival, which are rarely held at this time of year, Tomorrowland Winter excepted, of course.

Anyway, Are You With Me was inspired by my own visit to my very first music festival back in July - one of THE biggest electronic dance music festivals in the world: Tomorrowland. And quite a few of my own experiences at that truly magical festival have been written into this story, but there'll be more about that in the coming weeks. Watch this space... 😉

OK. Check out Are You With Me's book blurb below, and all the details you need to know about its release date, and pre-order info...
