Contemporary Romantic Mystery Thrillers


The Race Is On!

A peculiar invitation to Heidelberg involves Keira Drummond in the search for a collection of extraordinary jewels once owned by a Mughal Emperor – the set last known to be in the possession of Amsterdam resident, Geertje Hoogeveen, in 1910. Who of Geertje’s descendants can Keira rely on, since distrust among them is rife? Who is the deadliest third-cousin, determined enough to hire thugs to tail Keira and Teun Zeger, a Californian she is very drawn to, as they pair up to unearth the jewellery? And who harbours the ultimate mystery item that is even more precious than the Mughal jewels?

Greed, suspicion and murder are balanced by growing family loyalty, trust and love.

Topaz Eyes, was a Finalist for The People’s Book Prize Fiction 2014

“…This was the perfect holiday read; gripping and engaging with, of course, a romance which Nancy Jardine writes so well.”

“…Although not a crime novel as such, the shadowy characters following Keira and Teun keep one alert, and distrustful of even innocent characters.” 

Crooked Cat Tales 
This collection of tales includes a short story of mine named - Misgivings. Misgivings features Zaan and Fenna, two of the secondary characters from my contemporary mystery thriller, Topaz Eyes.

The Mystery…

Patience isn’t Nairn Malcolm’s strong point when someone sabotages his business. It gets much worse when he is also under attack. Who can transport him around from his Scottish island castle base, help keep his business running smoothly, and be available to him 24/7? 

Aela Cameron’s skills are perfect for Nairn’s current predicament. Transporting him across the globe is a pushover. Dangerous situations don’t faze her, in fact they make her more determined to solve the mystery of Nairn’s saboteur. She’s not into passing flings – yet how can she resist her new boss as time runs out on her temporary contract?

“Take Me Now is a fun contemporary romance set in Scotland, a swift-paced story with humorous moments that will leave the reader laughing and sighing.”

“Take Me Now is an enjoyable read for those who like contemporary romances with swift pacing and entertaining storytelling.”

"…With beautiful description, it feels like you're travelling the globe with handsome Nairn and feisty, capable Aela, and the sub plot of sabotage, will keep you reading till the end."
