First book in series

The Courage of Eli Jackson

Hunter tells this tiny jewel of a tale with an unabashed gusto that matches her heroine's sparkling panache. The emphasis is on startlingly direct communication and the headlong rush of impulse, leading to a marvelous, funny whirlwind of a romance.

The Courage of Eli Jackson

The first book in my Australian-set Jackson Brothers series has had a lot of love from readers and reviewers recently. It also received a rebrand and a name change from The Honeymoon Trap to The Courage of Eli Jackson. It’s one of my more lighthearted stories and features Australia’s swimming, surfing and fishing coastline – more specifically the marinas, boats and tides of mid-north coast NSW. It’s the world of my childhood.

My favourite story compliment is from a reader who said ‘I know this world. The scents and the sounds, the flavours, and these type of men‘. Guess what? She’d grown up not three kilometres from where I had. I’d given the place a fictional name and fuzzed some features but she knew it. In over 10 years of writing, filled with many fine compliments, this one’s still my favourite.

Books 2 and 3 in the series are also available. They’re called The Heart of Caleb Jackson and The Downfall of Cutter Jackson respectively, although they too have had other names. Book 4 is a dark-hearted little beastie that’s still a work-in-progress. I’ll pop an excerpt from it on my blog soon, for the curious.
