BLURB: Born into the privileged society of the squattocracy, Lilibeth Dungarven finds herself married, widowed and back under her father’s thumb all before her 21st birthday – a position this feisty and independent young woman fiercely resents.
When she finally persuades her father to let her accompany a shipment of horses to Sydney, with the added promise of her stallion winning at the Windsor races she believes that her life is finally on the right track. That is until she is bailed up by a band of bushrangers who are intent on stealing her horses and holding her to ransom – a ransom her father is not prepared to pay.
Tea’ has also just signed with Breathless Press for an Ancient Greek novella, A Winning Streak (release date to be advised) AND with Crimson Romance for Passionfruit & Poetry which will be released on 17th June 2013.

It’s available as an e-book both on Escape’s site plus most e-book sites.
BLURB: When Janni, a young salvager, boards a space wreck, she is caught for daring to steal Darkon tech by a patroller and the one man she had thought never to see again.
Several months ago she had allowed him to slip past her defences for a brief and wonderful interlude. But with both of them on either sides of the law, they had walked away. Now they are trapped on a wreck and with an alien life-force hunting them. Will the patroller save her or abandon Janni to her fate?
MEGA CONGRATULATIONS, EVERYONE FOR AN AWESOME BEGINNING TO 2013.
