Innocent Next Door

Take one alpha, army hero intent on offering protection and one virgin, country girl craving action and adventure, and you have the set-up for my latest release, Innocent Next Door.

Innocent Next Door is set in Auckland, New Zealand.

Auckland city and harbor

Summer, the heroine, works in the city and sees a similar view when she grabs a cab or drives to Dare’s restaurant.

Auckland Albert Park

This is Albert Park, not far from the library where Summer works.

Sky Tower

This is the Sky Tower where Dare took Summer for lunch. They dined at the revolving restaurant at the top.

Rangitoto Mt Victoria North Head

This is Rangitito Island, (the cone shape in the rear) another view that Summer sees while driving around Auckland.



Both Summer and Nikolai live in Bottle Top Bay, not far from Papakura. Above are two shots of Bottle Top Bay, taken from the other side of the estuary. As you can see the tide is out, and when it’s out, it is really way out! It’s pretty though, and out in the country, but still not far away from the amenities of town.

And here’s the cover…

Innocent Next Door

I’m conducting an experiment, and this book is only available at Amazon. If you’re a member of Kindle Unlimited, you can grab a free copy.

Here’s the link to Innocent Next Door.

The second book in the series, Soldier With Benefits, should be available for pre-order very soon.

Do you enjoy books set in real places or do you prefer fictional settings?

One comment to “Innocent Next Door”

  1. Sounds like a good set up for a book. I like both, real places as well as fictional ones.
