A Bouquet of White Roses

Arranging flowers is no fun when you're in love with the groom...

Florist Dawn Andrews’ business is to create beautiful bouquets, not to break up relationships. But when she’s asked to arrange the flowers for the wedding of an old school friend, it’s hard to ignore her budding feelings.

Dawn is the loveliest woman that landscape gardener Sam Winterson has ever seen. But as an engaged man, he dismisses the growing chemistry between them.

Until, that is, Sam has to rescue Dawn from an assault outside a nightclub. While he’s only doing what any honourable man would, Sam finds himself caring rather too much about the florist with the heart-shaped face and sherry-brown eyes.

With the wedding only five months away, can they dismiss their mutual attraction and carry on as ‘just friends’?

The Garden Plot - Book 1 of the English Garden Romance Series

Sometimes, love needs a plan

A feisty garden designer with a green conscience. A successful, ruthless property magnate. A match-making teenager. What could possibly go wrong?

Desperate to keep her garden design company afloat, Sam doesn’t need a relationship – she needs business! All that stands between her and the commission that might save her company is reclusive businessman Jonas Keane.

Jonas Keane is not interested in the kind of woman who puts her career before her home and family. Been there, done that. Ordered to stay home to recuperate from illness is frustrating as hell – but it allows him to oversee the renovation of his own garden while staying a silent partner in a housing development. What he doesn’t expect is to run headlong into a budding romance with a blonde, pixie-faced gardener intent on upending his plans.

Jonas’ daughter Magda, fed up with her dad’s long hours and picture perfect girlfriends, believes bright, petite Sam is the perfect solution. When tension between Sam and Jonas mounts with the summer temperature, she’s thrilled. But a proposed housing development threatens Sam's beloved countryside, and suddenly, Magda's match-making plans hang in the balance.

Can Sam save the beauty spot from the bulldozers? Can Jonas put pleasure before business? And will Magda get her happy ever after?

Love in a Mist - Book 2 of the English Garden Romance Series

An artistocratic Englishwoman. A fiery Irishman. Two secrets they'd rather not share.

Ella Sanderson manages the farms and estate at Ashton Manor. She’s an old-fashioned girl who knows what she likes. And she doesn’t like the ultra-modern garden designed for the ancient house by horticulture’s bad boy, Connor McPherson.

Connor is just the type of man she’s learned to mistrust. Bright blue eyes and Irish charm may have captivated her employer Lady Susan—but not her! With all her protective instincts on high alert, Ella can’t overrule Lady Susan’s wishes for the garden, but she can just… not help.

Connor McPherson didn’t want the commission, but as the garden will host his best friend’s wedding, he couldn’t refuse it. If the wettest English weather on record hasn’t completely blown his chances of getting the build completed for the big day, he’s also battling the snooty estate manager who couldn’t be less enthusiastic.

The stage is set for fireworks between the hot-tempered Irishman and the cool, contained estate manager. But when mounting problems force them to work together, Connor realises that beneath her buttoned-up exterior, Ella has a passion equal to his own and a secret she’s hidden for years.

As Ella fights to get the garden she hates built in time for the wedding she’d rather not attend and safeguard the manor from unwelcome publicity, she’s increasingly drawn to the tempestuous designer. Who, she discovers, has his own secrets to protect…
