More About the Author

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...

Her most recent books are the start of her Heartland Heroines series - stories of the girls who live deep in the New Zealand countryside. The first is 'Her Man with Iceberg Eyes' - a novel set in the alpine resort of Queenstown, way in the south. 'Christmas Holiday Husband' is the second, and takes you to a huge wealthy farm with its historic homestead and family heritage. See them all on her website -
Click through to the book pages there for extra photos and stories behind the stories.

Kris writes sizzling contemporary romances, and is the current membership secretary for Romance Writers of New Zealand. Six of her books are set at least partly in the capital city of Wellington so she can make use of the beautiful harbour in the plots. This is her Wicked in Wellington series.

Kris has written all her life - from her autobiography at twelve, to her own special wedding service, to short stories published in mass-circulation magazines and broadcast on National Radio in New Zealand. She has a background as an advertising copywriter and decor specialist.

During the past eight years she's produced a selection of racy romantic novels, and publishing them on Amazon has been the ideal way to share them with the world.

She hopes you enjoy reading the titles so far available, and assures you there are more to follow.

Here's what Romantic Times said about 'The Wrong Sister'
Kris Pearson. 4 stars HOT

Pearson's latest sizzles with passion and misconceptions as two souls struggle past social conventions to the love on the other side. Readers will relish the characters and will be praying that love will in fact triumph over convention. Summary: Fiona Delaporte has it all - a wonderful social life and an exciting job on a cruise ship - until her sister succumbs to cancer and her parents ask her to keep an eye on her niece and brother-in-law. The brother-in-law she has secretly wanted for five years and has spent the same amount of time avoiding.
Christian Hartley is in hell, forced to spend time with the sister-in-law he's attracted to, while still mourning his wife. As Fiona and Christian struggle against it, their passion spills over, burning both of them in the process. However, it is not the passion they will need, but the love, as they fear trusting in the relationship they feel is a betrayal to the woman they both loved. Sabrina Cooper.

Keep checking on Kris's author page, or her website - for upcoming stories.

The photos show Kris with a selection of her writing friends at Romance Writers of New Zealand conferences, with Kylie Griffin - author of Vengeance Born, and Alliance Forged. And with author Diana Fraser, waiting for the All Blacks to return to the hotel after a recent game. The subjects and the photographer may all have been a little tipsy!

Loved the book, but the stories were too short and could have been expanded and characters developed. Love Kris Pearson; have all her books.
