THE CHRISTMAS BABY BONUS is part of Harlequin Desire’s Billionaires and Babies series and I had so much fun writing it. I’m not a huge fan of the stresses and pressures that often come hand in hand with Christmas and I may have been staring with a wee bit (okay, a lot) of dislike at a Christmas tree when one of my best friends suggested in her chirpy voice, “Why don’t you write a Christmas story”. So I gave it a working title of THE GRINCH AND THE MANGER, and I duly wrote the book. Even better, I loved writing it and I’m so excited that it’s now available through all Harlequin stockists from December 5, 2017.

New Zealand is enjoying, for the most part, a warm spring in the run up to Christmas. Pohutukawa trees along the coast are already in full bloom. I remember hearing a tale that if the Pohutukawas bloom before Christmas we’re guaranteed a long, hot summer. If the tale is to be believed we’re well on track for that. I guess it must be odd to many of my readers to imagine a festive season with blue skies and sunshine and having a hot Christmas meal on an equally hot Christmas day, but it’s normal for us below the equator. Wherever you are, and however you celebrate (or not), I hope the coming months bring you much joy and happiness and lots of great reading!
