About Kris Pearson

If it's fine, Kris gardens. If it's wet, she writes. And if the writing's going well, the garden can look after itself...

Kris writes sizzling contemporary romances, and is the immediate past membership secretary for Romance Writers of New Zealand. Her first six books are set at least partly in the capital city of Wellington so she can make use of the beautiful harbor in the plots. These books make up her 'Wicked in Wellington' series. There's a boxed set of three to save you money, and the first three have just been translated into Spanish. More to follow!

She's also written the 'Heartlands' series - the girls who live deep in the New Zealand countryside. There's 'Her Man with Iceberg Eyes' and 'Christmas Holiday Husband', and 'More than the Money'. She's currently writing the second of her 'Sheikhs of Al Sounam' series.

Kris has written all her life - from her autobiography at twelve, to her own special wedding service, to short stories published in mass-circulation magazines and broadcast on National Radio in New Zealand. She has a background as an advertising copywriter and a decor specialist.

During the past eight years she's produced a selection of racy romantic novels, and publishing them through Smashwords has been the ideal answer to share them with the world.

The Boat Builders Bed by Kris Pearson
Sophie Calhoun is ready to go out on her own and open her own business, SUBTLE Interior Design Studio. Once her business gets going she can finally bring her daughter where she belongs, living with her. The last thing she needed was for the wind to throw her sign into a Jaguar when she was already tight on her budget. Seems that wind changed Sophie’s fate that day….at long as her secret can stay hidden.

Rafe Blackhawk Severino was in a bad place. He was the owner of a the successful Severino Superyachts but unlike his favored brothers, he had no family of his own. Thus his loneliness. Who would have thought being a good Samaritan to a beautiful blonde would change his mood and life so much?

The wealthy New Zealand businessman just happens to need a new interior designer….since his last one divorced him. Sophie will have a huge boost to her new business if she can get the job for Rafe’s unique cliff side home. I really enjoyed the story and as usual….it don’t pay to keep secrets because when they come to light on their own….not a good thing!

Loved loved loved it!!! I can't say enough good things about it! Perfect length, didn't have any "page fillers" in it. The author kept it to the point, a very sexy, romantic point I must say ;)

Loved it! GREAT characters! Strong, independent and spunky female and strong, sexy and successful male. What more could you ask for?? The story is also very good, nicely developed, not too cliche or overwrought. Has some spice as well and just a great ending :)
