Kris Pearsonabout this book: Here's the second romance in my Heartlands series. It follows on from 'Melting Her Heart', even though it's set in the other main island of New Zealand this time.
This one began when I had a holiday in Sydney Australia, just like my heroine Ellie did. And although I definitely noticed a particularly spectacular young man beside a hotel swimming pool, unlike her I didn't make off with him for the night! But someone like that stays in your brain if you're a writer, and then pieces of their story fight their way out and onto the page.
It took several years for 'Christmas Holiday Hearts' to emerge into the light of day. The book spans eleven years of Ellie's life, and begins when she takes a temporary teaching position on a huge farm called Wharemoana - pronounced farry-mo-arna. This beautiful Maori word translates as 'the house by the sea'.
Ellie has gone to do some holiday tutoring for two twin sisters. She has no idea their father is her one and only lover, Tony Robinson. How will she avoid becoming entangled with him again? And even more importantly, how can she keep her son a secret from him? She and Callum have been each other's whole lives, and she's intensely frightened that his charismatic and wealthy father will steal him away from her.
With 'Christmas Holiday Hearts' you get a passionate romance, a glimpse of what happened to Kate and Matthew from 'Melting His Heart', and the chance to spend more time in the beautiful scenery of New Zealand. It was far and away my best-selling book in December, and sales are continuing well. The next in this Heartlands series is ‘Cowboy Wants Her Heart’, and you can catch up a bit more with Ellie and Tony, and meet shy Alfie and a cowboy fresh out of Texas.
