Reveal Escape series -- Secret Confessions: Sydney Housewives


From the hottest writers in Australia comes a scintillating new series. Enter the world of Sydney’s elite, and find out what goes on behind the doors of the most exclusive addresses in the country…



 Meet the Housewives of Sydney. They are wealthy, elegant, poised, and constantly in the public eye. But what goes on behind closed doors, in the private homes and parties where the cameras and paparazzi aren’t welcome? Delve into the most personal details of their relationships, their friendships and their lives. The only question is: can you handle the heat?

Darla knows her place at the exclusive Diamond D dinners – she is comic relief, entertaining the rest of the women with tales of her dating woes. Since her divorce, she has been on one bad date after another, and not even a high-class dating agency can help.

But a massive storm front brings a visit from an old neighbour – and suddenly being neighbourly takes on a whole new meaning. When it rains, it pours, and it looks like Darla’s dry spell is about to become a thing of the past.

ARRA Award Nominations

I have not one but two nominations in the Australian Romance Readers Association ARRA annual awards which will be announced at the Australian Romance Readers Conference in March.

This is a big honour for me because this is voted on by the Australian Romance Readers. I have two different stories finalling in two different categories. If you want to read more about ARRA or their conference check out the links below the finalist categories.

There are SO many talented authors nominated here and I am extremely proud to be in such company. Quite a few of these authors are my friends and I am just as happy to see their names as I am to see my own. I love this community. I want to wish the Best of Luck to all of the authors nominated for these awards.
