About Kris Pearson

Kris writes sizzling contemporary romance, pure and simple. Well, maybe not that pure! They're sexy stories about couples who fall in love, and into bed along the way, just like real people do. The first novel in her new Scarlet Bay trilogy - HARD TO REGRET - is a lusty romp with a heartbreaking backstory threaded through it. The best of both. The newest is HARD TO RESIST. She's currently writing HARD TO HANDLE, and this is available on pre-order.

Five of her Wellington books have been published in sweeter editions under the author name of Kerri Peach.

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. She's an advertising copywriter and a decor specialist, and the author of 'The Boat Builder's Bed'. More than two million copies have now been downloaded free, and giving away a taste of her work with this one kick-started sales of all her others.

Her seven Wellington Series novels are set in the capital city so she can make use of the beautiful harbor in the plots. Her three Heartlands novels follow couples who live in more remote country areas of New Zealand.

Her all-time best-seller is 'Taken by the Sheikh'. There's now also 'Desired by the Sheikh', and these are not quite your usual sheikh stories.

Four books are now available in Spanish. There's a Spanish version of her website - click the flags at the top right of it to change languages. Five are currently being translated for China.

Kris es una chispeante autora de romántica contemporánea, pura y simplemente. ¡Bueno, quizá no tan pura! Se trata de historias sensuales sobre parejas que, a medida que avanza la trama, se enamoran y acaban en la cama, exactamente como en la vida real.
Cuando hace buen tiempo se dedica a trabajar en el jardín y si llueve, a escribir, y cuando está inspirada y no puede dejar de escribir, el jardín puede cuidar de sí mismo. Es redactora publicitaria y decoradora especializada y autora de “La cama del constructor de barcos”, de la que se descargaron gratis más de un millón de copias en inglés, lo que permitió dar a conocer su trabajo e impulsar las ventas de todas sus demás novelas. Precisamente ahora, la versión española de esta novela se encuentra disponible gratis para los lectores de habla hispana, así que descargaos una copia ya.

I'm writing my review 3 years late but I've always loved this book. I've read it over and over again over the years and I must say I'm still in love with the story (maybe a little more in love with Rafe lol). Beign an Interior Designer myself I can more than relate. Great writing. Definitely 5 stars.

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 :)
