Her Man with the Iceberg Eyes by Kris Pearson

Publisher: Kris Pearson (December 27, 2013) ASIN: B00CKF74WU

Iceberg EyesKate Pleasance is on her best behavior. Matthew McLeod is certainly not. She really needs the job he’s interviewing her for. He totally wants the unexpected candidate in his bed.

But is Kate spying for her famous father? Should Matthew trust her in the least? Join them in the beautiful New Zealand alpine resort of Queenstown, famous for its daredevil extreme sports.
Will Kate dare? And is Matthew the devil he seems to be?
Warning: Contains one tall tortured man who’s super-talented in bedrooms and boardrooms.

Kris Pearson is a wonderful NZ author, who showcases NZ cities and towns in her stories. This one was based in Queenstown, during winter no less, and focuses on Kate who has recently lost her mother and her boyfriend. In a bid to find something to take her mind off things, she applies for a job as a personal assistant. It isn’t until she arrived in Queenstown that she discovers the job involves working with a well known artist – and her cantankerous “husband”.

This story revolves around mistaken relationships – sounds odd, but when you read it, you will understand.

Another cracking good read by Kris Pearson

The Boat Builders BedA windy day…a flyaway signboard…a hideous crunch. Sophie Calhoun can’t imagine how she’ll pay for the damage to the luxurious car.

Already cash-strapped, she’s struggling to launch her new interior design studio and make a home for her daughter. She’s only days away from disaster.

Out of the sleek black Jaguar storms super-yacht tycoon Rafe Severino. Steaming mad. Totally gorgeous. And desperately in need of a top-line decorator for his spectacular new harbor-side mansion.

Sophie fears her dream contract comes with strings that tie her to the boat-builder’s bed. No matter how she tries to escape, he’s always there – implacable and irresistible.

She knows he doesn’t want a preoccupied single mother, but concealing her daughter’s existence from the man she’s falling in love with is getting harder and harder. If he discovers her lies, she’ll instantly lose everything.

Warning: contains one determined golden-skinned man who knows his way around boats, bodies and bed-sheets.

Rafe is one of those hero’s that you want to smack in the face with a spade.  You know, arrogant and irritating, but just so bloody gorgeous!  Kris has brought this character to life along with the heroine, Sophie who has a surprising secret that she can’t risk Rafe knowing, and as the story progresses, it get harder and harder for her to tell the truth.

Sophie is a totally likeable character, trying to make a go of it for her daughter’s sake.  She is full of insecurities and doesn’t trust why Rafe would be interested in helping her out.  Rafe just wants to bed her, and use her as revenge against his ex-wife, but he doesn’t count on falling in love.

Kris knows her art, and does it well.  A wonderful enchanting NZ read.
