Friday Weekend Escape to the harbour city of Sydney, Australia

This weekend we’re escaping to my hometown of Sydney, Australia. I spent the first thirty years of my life in Sydney, and grew up on the beautiful northern beaches. I love Sydney Harbour and the urban beach lifestyle. Sydney is also the setting for my brand new November release, Her Tycoon Hero, the first book in my Sydney series.

Sydney is Australia’s largest city and the central business district (CBD) is located by the harbour.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge was completed in 1932, joining the northern suburbs to the CBD. The BridgeClimb started in 1998, providing an opportunity for locals and tourists to climb the iconic bridge.

Sydney Opera House

The famous Sydney Opera House opened in 1973. I was thrilled to have the Sydney Opera House feature on the cover of Her Tycoon Hero (see below).

The Rocks is the historic part of Sydney. The photo above of the Sydney Opera House was taken from the waterfront at The Rocks.

I hope you’ve enjoyed touring my favourite harbour city. Next week we’re going to catch a Manly Ferry to the seaside suburb of Manly on the northern beaches. Enjoy your weekend!

Her Tycoon Hero cover

Cassie Beaumont believes in second chances.

Set on proving to everyone that she’s no longer a party girl, Cassie is focused on her career as an event planner. But her dad’s top executive, Ryan Mitchell, proves to be a handsome distraction. Especially when someone from Cassie’s wild past tries to get her tangled in the life she’s worked hard to escape.

Ryan is taken with his boss’s beautiful daughter. But having been fooled by a brother who ran in her same circles, he is slow to trust. When Cassie’s newfound faith works its way into his heart, Ryan soon finds he wants to claim both her faith—and Cassie—as his own.
