Hell and Tommy! 

That’s what Remy would have said when she discovered So Far Into You was a 2015 ARRA finalist for Favourite Contemporary Romance. Remy says ‘Hell and Tommy!’ when something takes her by surprise, or if something good or bad happens (you know, like if you whack your thumb with a hammer). It’s much nicer than saying ‘holy sh*t’!

And Remy is nice.

Everyone says that.

Except Seth.

Don’t get me wrong, he thought she was nice when he met her, saving her from a spring storm at the Margaret River Wine Festival a few years back. He thought he’d found Snow White and Sleeping Beauty all rolled into one.

Then Seth heard Remy talking on the phone one afternoon (yes, okay, he eavesdropped because Seth is not nice) and what he overheard changed his mind about Remy and fairy tales. Changed it completely!

So begins So Far Into You. It’s a reunion/second chance romance that begins in the vineyards of Margaret River in southwest Western Australia, and moves to the vineyards of the Adelaide Hills in South Australia.

It involves Seth and Remy and two crazy American Staffordshire Terriers called Occhilupo and Breeze.

Jars & Breeze

These two are inspired by the two dogs I used to own. I always knew they’d squish their way into one of my books one day!

Thank you to the readers who have read and enjoyed So Far Into You and who voted it into the finals of the ARRA Awards. I was so surprised, so excited to get the email from ARRA, I bet you can guess what I said!

Yep. ‘HOLY SH*T!!!’

Because I am not nice either 😉


An Australian rural romance about a millionaire wine tycoon, the woman he betrayed and the second chance neither was looking for
