A fellow Bootcamper, Nikki has been a pillar of strength for me and my writing. I'm amazed by her dedication to her craft, and her incredible output.
Her first book, Lights, Camera...Kiss The Boss hit the shelves in February 2010 and since then she's had seven other titles released, and has at least another one the way. Totally amazing, see!
Her latest book is called Rapunzel in New York. What a title. Here's the blurb:
Viktoria Morfit has built herself a safe, convincing life in her Manhattan apartment following a tragedy in her life five years before. Her latest project is to attract a pair of peregrine falcons to the nestbox she's installed on the ledge of her highrise apartment, giving her back a little bit of the nature she misses so much since she quit rockclimbing.
Landlord Nathan Archer has no idea how badly Tori relies on the handful of walls surrounding her, any more than she knows what kind of a childhood he endured in the building she thinks so highly of. He's planning on razing every last brick to the ground and burying his memories along with it, but the more he discovers about the gentle Tori and her whacky bunch of neighbours, the harder it's going to be to put his demons to rest.
When the chips come tumbling down will Nathan be able to set aside the misery of his past to protect the beautiful peregrine falcons and the wild, passionate Tori who both call his building home?
Read the excerpt here. I just love the UK cover for this one, and I have actually ordered it from the Book Depository (thumbs up, BK).
You can find out more about Nikki at her website, and find her blogging over at LoveCats DownUnder and the Harlequin Romance Authors blog.
Covers are from the different releases - US, UK, or Aus/NZ - in case you don't recognise them.
