As an early Christmas present for all readers and potential readers, for the next 2 days Can’t Live Without will be FREE to download for your Kindle. If you’ve treated yourself – or someone else – to a Kindle for Christmas, why not load up with some of the brilliant freebies that are on offer this weekend, starting with my very own :)

Here are the links to download:



Please share if you can, tell all your freinds, tweet and generally get the word out. Back in July this year Can’t Live Without achieved over 10,000 downloads – I’m not hoping to match that this time around, but it would be nice to get in the hands of as many new readers as possible. Thanks guys!


How does it feel to lose everything you own?

Stella Hill is proud of the home she’s created for herself and her daughter. She’s worked hard to buy the very best of everything … But when she wakes one morning to find her kitchen on fire, Stella knows her life will never be the same again.

At least she has Paul to lean on: Paul Smart, owner of Smart Homes, confirmed bachelor and unknowing recipient of a schoolgirl crush Stella never quite got over … When the charismatic John Dean turns up after sixteen years, Stella is determined not to fall for him again. Because now her heart belongs elsewhere. Or does it?

With a boss she’s half in love with, a teenage daughter about to go seriously off the rails, a spendaholic mother, and a house to rebuild, Stella’s problems are only just beginning.

Can Stella put her life – and her home – back together again? And will she ever realise just what it is she really can’t live without?
