Hi and welcome to:
Rural romance with a twist of suspense
Welcome! As we count down to Christmas!
Can you believe it's less than three months away?
Starting to think of presents? You can order PRINT COPIES from my store, or email me to arrange for signed copies of most of my self-published books.
I've begun writing book 4 in Home to Lark Creek and loving both the book and the research, while enjoying my newly released Bindarra Creek book: In the Heat of the Night. (see below)
Here's the cover of Her Christmas Kisses (Rainbow Cove Christmas), which will release in November. It's book 2 in a four-book series set around: One gourmet party. Four potential couples. The taste of love?
Devastated by her parents' divorce and the impending sale of the family restaurant, Flick Ardmore is determined to find the money to buy the restaurant herself. She doesn't expect to find herself stranded in Rainbow Cove with no car, no work, and no prospect of success.
Xander McIntyre, owner of the luxury Rainbow Cove Resort, is a workaholic developer with a looming deadline hindered by the arrival of his young special needs sister, Jenny.
When Flick connects with Jenny, it seems like the perfect solution to both their problems - if only Flick and Xander can ignore the undeniable spark between them. Or will their building attraction cause more problems than it solves?
I'm also part of an eleven-author Christmas anthology, Romancing the Holiday. That cover reveal will come soon too!
Researching and writing my first single title book has begun. This is a longer project than my rural series. I'll share more when I have a clear idea of it.
Come join us on the Australian and New Zealand Rural Fiction page!
Isn't this cover gorgeous!

When a callout to an accident gives him his first break in the case, he’s shocked when the investigation throws up an unexpected suspect. Sparks fly as the search for truth pits him against his newest recruit. (Bindarra Creek A Town Reborn book 2)
Turn Left for Home (Home to Lark Creek book 3)
When young Kaden Roscoe breaks into Anna Wilkins’ cottage, he sets off a chain of events that puts her on a collision course with the new lawyer in town.
When Jack Donaldson takes on the case, the last thing he expects—or wants— is to share the care of a troubled teenager with this feisty woman.
When trouble comes to their door, can Jack and Anna work together to keep Kaden safe long enough to testify?

My Nepal-set romantic suspense, 'High Stakes', has been very well received:
"A fast paced gripping read that will leave you as breathless as the thin air on the slopes of Everest. Susanne Bellamy delivers a suspenseful thriller."
"A great story. It kept me one the edge right up to the end."
Experience a trek in the Everest region of Nepal and a woman's pilgrimage to Base Camp in this story of danger and redemption ...
Dr Marcy Westcott is in Nepal to research a drug that occurs naturally in the Himalayan landscape. When attraction flares with Jake Harris on the Everest track, Marcy is determined to be more like her free-spirited twin sister.
Jake believes the attractive doctor is the missing link that will bring down the drug cartel responsible for the death of his brother. He will do whatever it takes to get justice. Unsure who the real enemy is or whether he can trust Marcy, Jake is forced to take on the role of protector. But is Marcy his salvation, or the enemy?
Here's a teaser from Hard Road Home:
By the time Geilis called for the lunch break, her shirt was sticking to her back and tendrils of hair clung to her damp face. Reluctant as she was to have Rick working on their vines, she had to hand it to him—he was a good worker. Sensible, quick to learn, he’d matched her row for row all the way through the first section of vines. As she took her hat off to wipe an arm across her forehead, he turned the corner and stood a short distance away.
“You look hot.”
Of course she looked hot, but not in the way she would have liked. He, on the other hand, looked hot. Damn it, she wasn’t going to notice him. She wasn’t going to go there. Not with an employee and definitely not with a man she had once admired but who had let her down by committing a crime. Concentrating on removing her sweaty gloves she turned away and tossed a comment over her shoulder. “You did well.”
