About Demelza Carlton

Demelza Carlton has always loved the ocean, but on her first snorkelling trip she found she was afraid of fish.

She has since swum with sea lions, sharks and sea cucumbers and stood on spray-drenched cliffs over a seething sea as a seven-metre cyclonic swell surged in, shattering a shipwreck below.

Sensationalist spin? No - Demelza tends to take a camera with her so she can capture and share the moment later; shipwrecks, sharks and all.

Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world.

The Ocean's Gift series was her first foray into fiction, followed by the Nightmares trilogy. She swears the Mel Goes to Hell series ambushed her on a crowded train and wouldn't leave her alone.

Review by: Sharon Stevenson on Aug. 7, 2014 :
I'm not big on romance but having tried out Carlton's 'Mel Goes to Hell' series and not being able to put it down, I just had to try this out. The story is different and captivated me quickly and easily. I love this writer's imagination! It's a pretty steamy romance read with the main character keeping a secret from the man she falls for. The ending really surprised me and it's safe to say I'll be reading this series now. Amazing story. Highly recommended!

Sex & Whiskey...

Water and Fire, a prequel to Ms Carlton's 'Ocean's Gift' series, certainly doesn't disappoint. With superbly crafted characters - the naughty Lin a particular highlight - and a setting that draws the reader in from the off, the sex and whiskey are of equal heat and import. One cannot help oneself hanging onto Ms Carlton's every word, longing for more at the end...

Contempory romance it may be, but this is a story about sex and whiskey, water and fire...

Review by: Laura Bush on Sep. 6, 2013 :
Water and Fire was OK. I got this as a member giveaway so I felt compelled to finish it. The characters were disconnected, the story was disconnected; it really just left you scratching your head in the end. There was a twist to the ending, but there was no build up to it, so when it came to fruition, it made absolutely no sense. Usually there's teasers throughout the book to get you thinking, but there was nothing in this book. The love story was one sided and was demeaning towards "the intern." God knows he was referred to as it more often than his name. I would say keep searching for something else to read.

I was caught in the first few chapters! Drawn into the world of a small bush hospital in outback Australia. Lanky red haired doctor Aidan falls for the new midwife and romance blossoms. But wait, where are the mermaids? I asked myself. You'll have to read it to find out!

I love the video trailers!

A student nurse adding to her education fund brings no surprise to the unflappable Belinda. While the Irish intern proves he only has eyes for the midwife.

Plenty of steam generated between the characters in and out of the shower.

There's something about a man in an apron. Just an apron...
