& A Book You Won't Forget!

Now Available For Pre= order by Clicking On The Cover

Olivia has no intention of starting an affair. She wants a beach, some sun, and to be left alone. It’s been more than a year since her husband died and she’s spent most of that time helping everyone else heal. This vacation is for her, but taking a beer to a stranger at the insistence of the staff, and making a five-minute friend? That won’t cut into her time to much, right?


How do you adjust to palace life when you've been a soldier for ten years? For Dante it’s flying halfway around the world to a beach where no one knows who you are. He's been called home to fulfill his duty to family and country, filling the princely roll he left ten years before when he joined the military. His father gives him mere weeks to figure out how to adjust to royal life again. Neither is looking for anything more than a friend in a remote land, but after spending a week together, will they really be able to walk away and find there happy ever after with someone else?


Our review......

A vibrant and compelling novel, Olivia from Jasper Trey proves not only highly enjoyable but a poignant reminder of loves consequences when two people with vastly diverse backgrounds are drawn together. A contemporary romance that straddles distant shores, there is an authenticity to Trey’s story that is wholly enthralling as she declines to serve up an archetypal romance in favour of a rather more genuine tale. One that explores the veracities of love, duty and second chances. Yes, Olivia might be a story of love against the odds but there is a deeper exploration of hope and expectation that permeates throughout its pages and elevates this curiously timeless tale to a class of its own. Intrinsically woven into the fabric of the plot Trey confidently navigates the characters she portrays and the distinct voices she gives to each. In the hands of another author, it might have proved a cumbersome story with trite platitudes, but Trey ably navigates the complexities of romance, allowing the seeds of discovery to flourishes as Olivia grows in confidence, whilst the drama of her ensuing relationship with Dante is perfectly pitched.


An altogether beguiling mix, which is thoroughly enjoyable Olivia: A Summer of Second Chances proves a great start to Trey's Harris Legacy series and is highly recommended.

We Must Never Forget  

The Fallen



"His baby breath hung milky white.

Soft downy hair within my sight.

But as I bent to  kiss his head.

Behind my eyes  the horror spread.


The acrid smoke of bullets past.

The stench of blood, gut wrenching blast.

The begging eyes,  and smell of fear.

Hands clutching hope on coming near.


His soapy skin,  flushed pink and new.

Eyes clear and bright with mother’s hue.

Softest skin and  gurgling smile.

Now overspread by all things vile.


With shaking hands and eyes shut tight.

Memories of each  haunting sight.

My comrades brave with babes and wives.

Torn to shreds before my eyes.


As tears spill out to soak his head.

I gently lay him down to bed.

Watch softly as he sucks his thumb.

And pray for all the orphaned young."


From The Fallen - Poem by Pixie Woodstock
