A classic love story with a side of sizzling seduction . . .

Having just discovered that her live-in boyfriend has traded her in for a twenty-two year old hostess, thirty-one-year-old Claire Hatley is on the run from Seattle. She answers an ad for a chef at a guest ranch just outside Colorado Springs and finds herself face to face with Cole Mitchell, quite possibly the sexiest man to ever ride a horse.

Common sense tells them to stay away from each other, but their attraction is not to be denied. He gives her a glimpse of what love should be, but just as she starts to trust him, the past comes back to tear them apart.

Join Claire and Cole as they embark on the stormy love affair of a lifetime.




Perfect for fans of Jodi Ellen Malpas and Sylvia Day, Lana’s addictive and unforgettable story will seduce, surprise and stay with you.

He will give her everything she’s ever wanted . . .

Jack Powell’s confidence is matched only by his intensity. The darkness in him comes from years of secrets and memories he’d rather forget. Lana has an exotic innocence that draws him in and Jack wants a taste of her. She’s a light in the darkness of his world – and she needs help, which he agrees to give her.

The only rule? He makes the rules.

Lana gives up her control, letting Jack take her body however he needs, while she works her way into his heart. But Jack’s past catches up to them and Lana finds herself wrapped up in a scheme that will expose every secret she’s worked so hard to keep. She clung to Jack once when her world was crashing down, but this time, she loves him. She’ll continue to reach for him – her only fear is if he’ll reach back, or go on his way, taking her soul with him . . .



From K Bromberg, the bestselling author of the Driven series, comes a pulse-raising, unputdownable romance featuring two of her best-loved characters . . .

One night. That’s all it was supposed to be . . .

Reeling from the sudden loss of her sister, Haddie Montgomery has sworn off relationships. All she wanted from Beckett Daniels was a sexy distraction to help her escape her pain for just a little while . . . There weren’t supposed to be any strings attached – so why can’t she shake the memory of that unforgettable night from her thoughts?

No matter how hard Haddie tries to forget about him, Becks relentlessly tries to prove that she should start living for today. But she is determined to avoid romantic commitment, and she can always use her ex-boyfriend’s reappearance to help snuff out the slow burn within her that Becks has sparked . . .

Or will fate force her to realise that this kind of connection doesn’t come along very often and a chance at love is worth the risk?

Mother’s Day will always hold a very special place in Jill Gregory’s heart

As Mother’s Day approaches, Jill Gregory reveals the special bond she shared with her mother . .  .

Mother’s Day is a universal holiday, yet such a personal one for each of us.  To me, this day reminds me of my lovely mother whose heart and soul made our home so warm and loving.  Slender and dark-haired, she passed away from breast cancer when I was twenty-one, but in the time we had together, she gave me a lifetime of love, kindness, gentleness, and wisdom.

It was my mother who introduced me to the books of Georgette Heyer and Mary Stewart. They were her favorite authors and she read and collected all of their books. And of course, when I was old enough, she shared them with me. What a gift!

Once I started reading these wonderful books, they quickly became my hands-down favorites as well.  I devoured them, one after the other, as if they were the finest of chocolates.  And each one of these books which first belonged to my mother now sit prominently, first and foremost, on my own bookshelves.  Georgette Heyer and Mary Stewart, perhaps more than any other authors, inspired me with a desire to write books that would captivate readers in the same way that I was captivated by theirs.  I wanted to create stories that would delight readers and keep them turning the pages as quickly as possible — exactly as my mother and I did when we stayed up late at night in the kitchen, sitting side by side while everyone else in our home slept — both of us deeply and happily glued to our books.

As this Mother’s Day approaches, I realize that my mother had yet another great impact on the books I write.  At the heart of all of my western romances, especially my Lonesome Way series of books – Sage Creek, Larkspur Road and Blackbird Lake – the essence of the story is home. Coming home, finding a place to call home, realizing the importance of home – all of these longings are at the heart of my stories. I see now that it’s because of my mother’s love and the way she lived her life that I have such a strong sense of home, of what a home is and should be and can be.

A place of love, belonging, laughter, and peace.

All of these are at the center of every happy ending, aren’t they?  As Mother’s Day nears, I wish and hope that everyone joyously celebrates the mothers who gave them the gift of home and love – and, of course, books!

Mothers shape the lives of their children in so many ways, and one day doesn’t even seem nearly enough to honor them.

But let’s try!

Sage Creek and Larkspur Road are available from Piatkus Entice now.
