Product Description

Product Description

Exiled from his family for half his life, hard-living cowboy Rory Morrissey finally quits Texas and embarks on a desperate and delicate mission: to return to New Zealand, convince shy Kiwi heiress Alfrieda Hamlin to marry him, and earn a fresh start, respectability, and one hell of a farm.

Alfie might be shy but she’s no pushover. When she learns about the succession deal being hatched between her autocratic grandfather and the handsome Texan stud, she rebels. There’s no way she’ll stand by and have her expected inheritance and freedom stolen away, so with only one month to outwit the scheming duo, she throws caution to the wind and snuggles up to the man she’s been ordered to marry. After all, she needs to know her enemy if she expects to beat him at his own game.
Warning: Contains one hunky cowboy determined to ride down his heiress, hog-tie her, and bundle her into his bed.
This is the third of my Heartlands series. The first two are ‘Her Man with Iceberg Eyes’ and ‘Christmas Holiday Husband’.

More About the Author

Kris writes sizzling contemporary romance, pure and simple. Well, maybe not that pure! They're sexy stories about couples who fall in love, and into bed along the way, just like real people do.

If it's fine, she gardens. If it's wet, she writes. And if the writing's going well, the garden can look after itself. She's an advertising copywriter and a decor specialist, and the author of 'The Boat Builder's Bed'. More than a million of the English version were downloaded free, and giving away a taste of her work kick-started sales of all her other novels.

Seven of her books are set at least partly in New Zealand's capital city of Wellington so she can make use of the beautiful harbour in the plots. This is her Wicked in Wellington series.

Her most recent books are her Heartlands series - stories of the girls who live deep in the kiwi countryside. The first is '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. Then there's 'More than the Money' - with a cowboy! Her best seller is 'Taken by the Sheikh', and she has more sheikh stories in the pipeline.

Check out her website - Click on the covers on the first page for extra photos and stories behind the stories. There's also a Spanish version of her website with four books so far translated - click the Spanish flag at the top right to get there.

The photos here show Kris with a selection of her writing friends at Romance Writers of New Zealand conferences - James Scott Bell, Diana Fraser, Kylie Griffin, Maggie Le Page, Gracie O'Neill, Tracey Alvarez, Joanne Hill, and Kendra Delugar. There's also a view of Wellington harbour, and a slice of her garden.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Zealand - Land of Questionable Critters 12 Jun 2014
By Sebella Blue - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was a big, fat paradox, both incredibly sweet and unbelievably sexy at the same time. Alfie had been incredibly sheltered and isolated because of her flighty artistic mother who had her out of wedlock. (This is 2014, right?) Her grandfather who is the Svengali of the book, is a throwback to the 1920's. I don't know, maybe it's different in New Zealand, but he was a MAJOR tool in this American girl's honest opinion. Anyway, back to the paradox, Alfie couldn't have been any greener if she had been raised by nuns. Despite the fact that she works with livestock and is well aware of what goes where. She has been browbeaten so much and for so long by Herr Craftsman, that her sexual identity is zilch. Not only that but he has arranged a marriage, without her knowledge or consent to a man who just shows up on her doorstep. So, at this point I am seriously thinking, it might be time to pull a Menedez on ol' Granpappy. But then some strange insect made me rethink the whole sitch. New Zealand is the home of the cave weta. They only live in this tiny area of the entire world. If New Zealand can breed these critters, well maybe Pops isn't such a strange Kiwi after all.

Seriously, I thought this was photoshopped or something but this a a THING. Rory, the ex-pat Kiwi, who now hails from Texas, actually saved Alfie when a cave weta fell down her shirt. For this he deserves all the sex, and land that he could ever want. Not only did he remove the weta, he put it back in the cave so that it wouldn't die in the sunlight. I love this cowboy. With all his shucks, and darlings, he was just too, too yummy. He was actually a very decent sort, who fell into instant lust with Alfie and resented the way she had been parceled out as part of a land deal. He put a lot of effort into building up her self esteem and giving her some independence. He was also a very dirty cowboy, and I'm not talking trail dust, nosireebob! He gives Alfie some hands on training in animal husbandry. *snort*

For under one hundred and fifty pages, this was a well written, quick but satisfying romance that taught me a few things, some good and some I'll have nightmares about. *ewwwww* I think the whole weta incident pretty much put the kibosh on any future trips to New Zealand, so I guess I'll have to rely on more books from Kris to satisfy my wanderlust. Nice, job, Ms. Pearson, I enjoyed the ride.

4.0 out of 5 stars How to Pursue a Shy Girl 1 Nov 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Rory Morrissey has the opportunity of a lifetime being offered to him. He spent many years away from family; years working hard in Texas and is now returning to New Zealand. There's a really large estate working for the taking but there is also another unbreakable condition. The controlling owner, has thrown in the condition of marrying his grandaughter, Alfrieda as part of the deal. In order to win, he has to have Alfie on board. She's shy, but she's also tired of being so unmercifully controlled and all she wants is her freedom. Rory might be drop dead gorgeous and charming but its not going to be as easy as he first thought. Sparks are about to fly.

Spicy; yes, some of the story is definitely spicy. To be honest as I read the story I began to see that it could also have been called "The Seduction of Alfie". I enjoyed the fact that although he wanted the farm, he began to realize he was intrigued by Alfie. He began to want to know who she really was as she began to be more free of her grandfather's cruel presence. He began to seduce her with kindness, and specific possibilites of freedom if she were to marry him. He was relentless in his pursuit constantly reminding her how good marriage could be between them. He often told her they could build something, make it work if they just tried. He also wasn't shy about her becoming more used to him and also the physical attraction that he introduced her deeper into. Alfie fought him especially hard at first because she was terrified, but she also didn't want her calculating grandfather to win either. She still thinks Rory will say or do anything to get the farm, that he really doesn't want her. Like I say, boy do the sparks every fly.

By JellybeanD - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I couldn't wait to pick this up. It had things that I would definitely call favourites - Home (New Zealand), Hot Cowboy, Heroine with a bit of back bone.
Fans of Cowboys should definitely give this one a go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet read, Alfie is naive but tough and Rory is so sexy... 10 Nov 2014
By gmarkus - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this book. It was sexy, the grandfather was an evil person through and through and even if he did tempt Rory with the ranch in exchange for marriage to Alfie, he kept the situation tense. His demands were something out of the early 1900s. He should have been given a taste of his own medicine when he failed to let Alfie know that her mare was foaling and for springing such a horrible surprise on Alfie like she was a brood mare. It was a good read. I would like to see more books by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anticipation is so good 4 Nov 2014
By Texas - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Rory has been offered half interest in the NZ ranch, Glenleighton, but to accept the deal he must marry the owner's granddaughter. Alfie, the hereditary heir is blindsided by her grandfather's edict. Rory and Alfie have one month to agree or both will lose the land. As these two get to know each other Kris Pearson slowly builds the reader's anticipation with lots of clever dialog and situations. This is a sexy, satisfying, but not raunchy read. I want to read more of the Heartland series! I was provided with a copy of this book by the author in exchange for a honest review.
