It Started with Memories – Welcome to Porthgarrion, where love is always in the air…

She’d always loved her home, but more than twenty years ago, Nicki Woodward felt she had no choice but to leave Porthgarrion and live her life elsewhere.

Her heart had always belonged to Ed Moyle, but when he married her best friend it was too much to take. It was better to be somewhere else. But following the death of her mother, she takes the chance to return home. It’s time to lay her ghosts to rest…

Ed Moyle has been drowning in grief for the last seven years, since his beloved Suzannah died. He knows he needs to move on, but it’s not as easy as it sounds, and just thinking about it leaves him feeling awash with guilt.

But when Nicki Woodward walks into his pub, on a chilly winter’s evening, Ed wonders whether perhaps fate is giving him a nudge…

And whether he’ll ever be able to take the chance and act on it…

A note from Suzie…

“These books can be read in any order, although it’s probably best to read It Started With Flowers first, as an introduction to the village and the characters, whose stories will follow… in The Porthgarrion Stories.”

It Started with Cake – Welcome back to Porthgarrion, where love is always in the air

Jack Turner feels like he’s about to make the biggest mistake of his life. His fiancée, Lucy, is planning their wedding with military precision, but he doesn’t even remember asking her to marry him… and the thought of spending the rest of their lives together? Well, it’s filling him with dread.

Rachel Pedrick owns the bakery in Porthgarrion, although she also makes wedding cakes, which is how she meets Lucy and Jack. The last thing she expects, while she’s contemplating cake toppers, is to start receiving flirty messages from the groom… or that she’ll like them so much.

Propriety gets the better of them, and they reluctantly call a halt to their half-hearted liaison. But fate, it seems, has other ideas, and when Rachel makes a shocking discovery about Lucy, she’s faced with a dilemma. Does she tell Jack, and maybe win his heart, or keep Lucy’s secret, and risk losing him forever?

Or… does she let fate make the decision for her?

It Started with Hello – Welcome back to Porthgarrion, where love is always in the air

It Started with Hello sees newcomer to Porthgarrion, Laura Clark looking forward to a new start, away from her bullying, overbearing ex-husband. She’s bought herself a flat – a place to finally call her own – and she can’t wait for the freedom her new life will bring. What she’s not expecting is to bump into a total stranger and to fall in love with him the moment he says, ‘Hello…’

Sergeant Rory Quick is lonely. His wife walked out years ago, and his daughter Gemma has just left home. With so much time on his hands, he doesn’t know what to do with himself. He could catch up with friends… or he could fall in love with a total stranger, just because she said ‘Hello…’

Neither of them are looking for love, but when Laura’s flat is burgled, Rory comes to the rescue, discovering a protective side he didn’t even know he possessed.

Will that be enough, though, when Laura’s past comes back to haunt them?

It Started with Hello – Welcome to Porthgarrion, where love is always in the air…

Kit and Summer have known each other all their lives – except they’ve never met.

Having lived in Porthgarrion all her life, Gemma Quick can’t imagine living anywhere else. The quaint little harbour village is simply perfect – even more so with the arrival of PC Tom Hughes. He’s got excellent taste in flowers and looks gorgeous in his uniform… If only her father didn’t dislike him so much…

Tom isn’t so sure about Porthgarrion. It’s nothing like he expected, and while he’s happy to be nearer his mother, he’s not at all sure about the villagers, especially his boss, Sergeant Quick, who doesn’t seem to have a good word to say about him…

But there are benefits… waking up to a sea view every morning, the walk to work along the harbour… and Gemma.

Falling for her is easy, but when he discovers the truth about her, will it be so easy to stay with her… and to stay in Porthgarrion?

Chasing the Dream (Never Give Up Book 2)

Chasing the Dream


Released
16 July, 2021

Chasing the Dream by Suzie Peters front cover.

Sizzle Rating: Three sex-sizzle flame ratingSizzling Sex and Language

Chasing the Dream – a dual POV story with graphic sex scenes, adult language, and a bad-boy hero, who’s willing to change for the woman he loves.

“Well… you’ve learned quite a lot about me this evening then, haven’t you?” I say, smiling at her. “You know I’m a private person – except where you’re concerned; that I had a fairly mixed up childhood; that I probably still let my dad and my feelings about him have too much influence over my life. And that I’m completely honest.”

And that with you, I’m in real danger… serious danger…

Eva

What do you do when you’ve got no experience with men, but you meet the man of your dreams? You know the type? Tall, dark, handsome, built like a god…

You fall head over heels… that’s what you do.

And that’s what I did, even though he’s my boss, and sleeping with him could have been the biggest mistake of my life.

Except, falling for him wasn’t my biggest mistake. Trusting him was… and it ended up costing me everything.

Chase

What do you do when you’ve got a reputation with women, and an angel walks into your life? No… not an angel. A damn goddess.

You learn how to be romantic… real fast. That’s what you do.

And that’s what I did.

Of course, I didn’t expect to fall for her. I didn’t expect to want ‘forever’ too… and I didn’t expect rejection. Not after she’d slept with me…

Or that losing her would hurt so much…

Chasing the Dream is book two in the six-book Never Give Up Series, but can be read as a stand-alone story with no cliff-hanger, and a guaranteed HEA.

A note from Suzie…

“This was a lovely book to write, mainly because a lot of it is set in the Caribbean, and who wouldn’t want to lose themselves, writing a love story, surrounded by azure seas and soft white sands?”

Taming the Storm


Taming the Storm by Suzie Peters cover.

Sizzle Rating: Three sex-sizzle flame ratingSizzling Sex and Language

Taming the Storm – a dual POV story with graphic sex scenes, adult language, and a stormy, hot Dominant hero with a rule book all of his own.

“I still want to dominate you… I still need to dominate you. Sexually. But because it’s you… and because I’m in love with you, everything else is different. The rules don’t matter anymore.”

Bree

What do you do when you’re fresh out of a divorce from a man who wanted to control every inch of your life, but your brother’s need to keep you safe means he’s just as bad?

You escape… that’s what you do.

And that’s what I did, until my brother’s gorgeous bodyguard caught me… and threatened to spank me if I didn’t behave myself.

Now I can’t stop thinking about him and all the things he could do to me… if only he wanted to.

Colt

What do you do when the woman you’ve been in love with for over a decade is finally free, but you know she’s wrong for you? Or at least, you’re all wrong for her?

You keep your distance… that’s what you do.

And that’s what I did, until Bree’s impulsive escape made me threaten to spank her.

Now I can’t get the thought out of my head… and I don’t want to.

Taming the Storm is book one in the Never Give Up Series, but can be read as a stand-alone story with no cliff-hanger, and a guaranteed HEA.

A note from Suzie…

“I loved writing this story, probably more than any other to date (although I have a feeling I say that every time I finish a book!). In this instance, I just enjoyed writing about a man who’s willing to be tamed… to throw away the rule book… for the woman he loves.”

Days of Summer: An emotional, uplifting romance for lovers… everywhere

In Days of Summer, Kit and Summer have known each other all their lives – except they’ve never met.

Struggling under the weight of his guilt, anger, and sadness, Kit is incapable of connecting with anyone. He’s closed himself off from the world, buried himself in work, and wrapped his smothered daughter in cotton wool. But a tragic death forces him to return to his childhood home, where he meets the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen, forcing him to question everything that he’s avoided about his life.

The woman is Summer, the ray of sunshine who is exactly what Kit needs to bring him back to life again. Fighting his feelings – and Summer – every step of the way, she vows to help this broken man as best she can… No matter what.

Until one day, he goes too far…

Will Summer ever forgive him? And can he forgive himself?

A note from Suzie…

“Days of Summer was the first book I sat down and wrote from scratch after my husband suffered two strokes. We were lucky: he survived. But our lives changed completely and I wanted to write something about accepting that things don’t always go to plan… that sometimes life just is what it is. And this is that book.”

JOIN SUZIE’S CIRCLE

Never Too Late – a deeply moving story of love, loyalty and second chances.

It was a meeting that only lasted an hour, but it was a meeting that would change their lives. Forever.

To Adam, Jenna was young, beautiful, and shy, and he fell for her so hard and so fast that to him, she would always be ‘the girl’. To Jenna, Adam was perfect… the most handsome man she’d ever seen, especially the striking tattoo that adorned his back, earning him the nickname ‘the wolf man’; at least in her mind. But a series of misunderstandings meant their plans for the following day never happened, forcing them to go their separate ways, to very different lives.

Fifteen years later, Adam has been through a series of relationships, always looking for something ‘more’ and losing a lot along the way. Jenna has come away from her ruined marriage a broken woman, choosing to protect herself behind a wall, burying herself away from life… and men.

What happens when fate reunites them, and they find out who they truly are? Will Adam be able to break through Jenna’s defences and help her see that, even after all these years, after so much heartbreak, it’s never too late to fall in love… again?

A note from Suzie…

“In this, my third stand-alone novel, I wanted to see what would happen to two characters who were brought together for just a brief time – one hour in this case – and then were divided and lived their separate lives, only find each other again many years later.”

Time for Hope – an inspiring, uplifting story, guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

In Time for Hope, timing is everything. Especially when you know time is running out…

Time for Hope – Hope Nelson is lonely. After the tragic ending of her first marriage, all she wants is someone to love her, to share her life, and – above all – be committed to her, but she’s starting to think that’s just the stuff of her favourite novels, not her reality. It doesn’t help that she lives in a tiny rural village in Cornwall, where there are no single men under the age of sixty, or that she rents out a beautiful holiday cottage designed as an intimate getaway for couples… Constant reminders that both life and romance are passing her by.

When Logan Quinn takes a last minute booking, arriving alone and looking utterly gorgeous, she starts to think her luck might have changed. Until he reveals he’s recently broken off his engagement… just two days ago.

Looking for a quick escape from his broken relationship, the last thing Logan expects is to meet the beautiful owner of the cottage and fall head over heels. All he has to do is convince Hope to give him a chance, to trust him, and to show her that anything worth having is worth waiting for.

Should be a breeze.

Except all is not as it seems.

Because Hope has a secret and, while they say love is blind, this secret could tear them apart before they’ve even started.

A note from Suzie…

“For my second stand-alone novel, I wanted to create a real, old-fashioned romance. And what could be more romantic than writing letters to the one you love… every, single day?”
