Coming Soon

The next book in the Island Bound Series is coming soon. Set on the Big Island of Hawaii, there is intrigue, betrayal and, of course, molten lava. Release day is the 30th of January 2020.

Torn by a fate out of their control, they each must make a heart-rending choice.

Keira Puana’s day couldn’t get much worse as she watches her beautiful house destroyed by a deadly lava flow. That is, until she discovers her husband is not what he seems, and she becomes the next target of a Mafia-style syndicate. Life on the Big Island of Hawaii is hardly ever boring.

Dalton Kealoha, stumbles across Keira hiding in his back shed and his first reaction is to turn her over to the police. He’s unwittingly drawn into her game of lies and danger, however, when he’s forced to take her into hiding after they’re both nearly killed in a shooting. But when Dalton’s young son is put in jeopardy, his life begins to spiral out of control.

Keira’s sister, Sierra, and her fiancĂ©, Reed arrive on the island and get caught up in the life-threatening situation, as they try and devise a plan to rescue her.

Can Dalton help Keira clear her name and mend her broken heart before she self-destructs? Or will he be forced to betray her when he’s faced with an unbearable choice?

Christmassy Food for Thought

Lemon Shortbread

A Christmassy recipe that uses some of the many lemons on my lemon tree (it's summer here in Perth and lemons are in plentiful supply) I made this recipe a few days ago and we had it for a Christmas morning tea. It was absolutely delicious. 


2 cups Butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup lemon juice

4 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest

4 1/2 cups all-purpose (plain) flour


1 cup powdered sugar

2 tablespoons Butter softened

2 tablespoon lemon juice

Garnish: 1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon zest(optional)


Heat oven to 180 C (350°F). Lightly grease 15x10 inch baking pan; set aside.

Combine all shortbread ingredients except flour in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour; beat at low speed until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Press dough evenly into prepared pan. Bake 30-35 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely.

Combine all glaze ingredients in bowl; beat with whisk until smooth.

Spread thin layer of glaze over cooled shortbread; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon lemon zest, if desired. Let stand 30 minutes to set.

Cut into 2 1/2x1-inch strips.


Coming in June 2020
