Coming Back

Once, Christabelle Jayne defied death. Learning to live and love again is going to be so much harder.

After being abducted and vanishing without a trace, she was presumed dead. But Christie isn’t the kind of girl that goes down without a fight. When she crawls out of the forest almost two years later, bruised and bleeding, she is confronted by a world that seems to have moved on and left her behind.

Dean Hawking returned to Warfields after a terrible tragedy on the job shook his faith in humanity. The cop’s transfer home wasn't the cure-all he hoped for until the best thing about it, the girl he loved since high school, Christie Jayne, turns up alive.

Their worlds are thrust together again for the first time in years. Though still reeling from her ordeal, in Dean she finds a fathomless love that reminds her there are still beautiful things in the world. In Christie, he sees his chance at redemption…

Then Dean uncovers some startling information about Christie’s case, revealing that she might be in imminent danger, and their second chance at love will be put to the test when the full story of her escape is revealed. Can there be any coming back from what she’s had to do?


The Last Thing You See

Harper Bayliss is about to pay the full price of fame. That is, if her stalker’s plans work out.

Hollywood’s new favourite starlet is already feeling overwhelmed by the insecurity of her past, a family that controls her every move, and the stresses that come with her job when a brutal attack from a madman takes that stress to a whole new level. But what neither Harper nor her attacker saw coming was the 6’4”, heavily muscled ex-Marine, Nick Martell, throwing himself in harm’s way to save her. After she visits him in the hospital to offer her thanks, she can’t help but be intrigued by the man she finds beneath the bad boy exterior.

Plagued by guilt over his failure to protect the one person that mattered the most, all Nick wants is to find some peace. The tattooed former Marine is scarred, inside and out, but saving Harper Bayliss might be his first step toward redemption. What’s more, her answer to his heartfelt question is about to send them both down a path of scorching passion…and maybe even love.

With the pressures of Harper’s fame and Nick’s guilt working against them, will their feelings be enough to overcome all the obstacles, including the stalker that’s still out there? If he gets his way he’ll show them that, even if they choose each other, you seldom get to choose the last thing you see.

The Last Thing You See from USA Today bestselling author Emma South is a New Adult Romance about letting go of the past to find unconditional love in the present.


Writing Our Song: A Billionaire Romance

For aspiring singer, Beatrice Hampton, the future used to be a sweet thing to look forward to, filled with the kind of joy you could write a song about. However, after losing her parents while still in high school, she is left crushed, alone, and harboring a bitter resentment towards the wealthier members of society, whom she partially blames for the destruction of her hopes and dreams. After years of lonely struggle, she can hardly remember the last time she felt happy.

That’s when she literally stumbles into billionaire Jeremy Holt and things take another turn for the unexpected. Seeking only a temporary escape from the cold and grey confines of her life, Beatrice agrees to go with Jeremy on a short trip to New Zealand. On the surface Jeremy is the exact kind of man she promised herself she would never fall for but, after spending some time with him, she realises that maybe there’s a lot more to the successful young man than his money. Maybe he’s the one person that can make her feel alive again.

Beatrice can’t deny the spark, the chemistry, between the two of them but her past still haunts her. To be with Jeremy she must face the stresses of life in the public eye and the guilt of broken promises to herself and her parents. To be without him is almost too painful to bear. Will Beatrice and Jeremy get the chance to write the song of their love, or will they each be left with the memory of a beautiful but all too short time when their lives intertwined?


Breaking Surface: An Our Song Novelette

Beatrice Hampton is struggling to adjust to life as the girlfriend of a handsome young billionaire. It should be easy, but when she lost her parents in her mid-teens, she lost a dearly loved piece of herself too and still can't shake that voice inside her head that tells her that her house of cards is going to come tumbling down at any moment.

This is the story of how she got that special part of herself back.

On a day that began without much promise, Bea's past and future come together unexpectedly. A beautiful memory from her youth and the love and support of Jeremy Holt give her the courage to rekindle her hopes and dreams.

Remember Our Song: A Billionaire Romance

Beatrice Holt seems to have it all. She's got a passionate and loving marriage to the perfect man, billionaire Jeremy Holt, and all the opportunities and financial security that comes with it. However, life wasn't always so wonderful. When a tragic accident results in amnesia, she is effectively transported back to a time when all her emotional wounds are still causing her intense pain. She can't remember how those wounds were healed the first time around, she can't remember her marriage, she can't remember the man behind the money at all. All she sees in Jeremy is the very kind of man she swore she would never fall for.

Can Jeremy find a way to make her fall in love with him all over again and make lightning strike twice? Can he help Beatrice remember their song or has their one chance for happiness slipped through their fingers?


Hope (Curse of the Succubus #1)

Mary was born into poverty over a thousand years ago.  When the rich, powerful, and sinister Sylvester gave her a chance to alter her fate, a chance to escape the shackles of the peasant class she was born into, she takes it.  The naive girl didn't know exactly what was going to happen to her, but it wasn't like anything she had imagined.

Now she has been cursed to roam the world as an immortal Succubus, a smoulderingly sexy temptress irresistible to all mankind, an unwilling agent of inhuman evil, until she conceives a child by a man who loves her rather than lusts after her.  Centuries of evidence has convinced her that such a man cannot exist.

That is, until she meets Clinton in a small town called Riverfield.  Both of them have known the extremes of emotional pain in their lives, but that could be what makes each one the other's saviour.  Can they fall in love before her curse brings the entire town down on top of them?

    This [Hope] was a great short story, I would love to find out if they got pregnant and beat the curse. I did have one issue however there was one instance where the town’s name changed from Riverfield to Riverview. I don’t know if the can be fixed or not but it did change back immediately so it is not really a big deal, I just have a small case of OFF and that caught my attention.

    • Emma says:

      Hi Tammara, thanks for the comment, I’m glad to hear you liked it. Also, thanks for picking up the error! I’ve updated my original document and I will get this corrected on Amazon shortly. I don’t think this will update *your* copy of the story automatically, but if the change doesn’t go live while the story is still free (which will be until the end of Sunday in Amazonland) I’d be happy to send you the corrected .mobi file via email.

  2. Shawnee says:

    I really enjoyed the story[Hope]. I love a good story that does not have a man that has gotten around and then a woman who is a virgin or extremely inexperienced. I love reading these types of books that have this different twist, although I would say the way she got the experience was less than desirable. I would also be interested in a final chapter to show where they ended up after all. Great read and absolutely worth it!

  3. TeraS says:

    Beautiful work honey and looking forward to the next part of the story!

  4. Emma says:

    I have just read Remember our song in 1sitting till 3:35 this morning. I loved it, it’s one of the best (if a little short) books I have read this year (currently 108 according to my goodreads shelf). I am a sucker for fairy tale romances and damsels in distress. I loved it and will put the reviews on amazon and goodreads. I was so relieved when I got the end and it stated your are writing more because I could so read more Bea and Jeramy.

    • Emma says:

      Hi Emma, thanks for your message and thanks for the support of your reviews as well, I really appreciate that! I hope you like the prequel when it’s done 🙂

      • Nikki says:

        I liked the series but this book left me cold. It said it was about Jeremy getting her to fall in love with him but he wasn’t in the book alot. I liked Beatrice in the first two books but she was not likeable in this one. It seemed that this book left too many things unsaid and unresolved. Sorry but fail for me!

  5. Susan says:

    I loved Jeremy and Bea’s story (Remember Our Song). I’m eagerly looking forward to reading the promised “prequel” story and hope it is available soon.

    • Emma says:

  11. Nathan says:

    Hi Emma,

    For the few short hours it took me to tear through “Remember Our Song” I enjoyed a welcome escape from study, and I thank you for it. I particularly liked the sense of humour that Bea and Jeremy shared. It felt very real. I will definitely be reading “Writing Our Song” in order to find out what happened in Bea’s youth to cause her to be so stubbornly independent and suspicious of wealthy men.


    • Emma says:

      Thanks Nathan! I see you’ve signed up for my newsletter, so you’ll be amongst the first to know about how things are going with Writing Our Song 🙂

  12. Roberta says:

    Hi Emma
    Just finished your book (Remember Our Song) I enjoyed it very much. Many times I just shut the TV of f and read a book through because it is more interesting than whatever is on the tube. I am retired now and enjoy a great romance. You kept my interest the whole way through. Now I’m waiting for the next one. Keep up the good work.


    • Emma says:

      Thanks Roberta, I’m glad you liked it. I’m getting near the end of my outlining for the prequel to Remember Our Song, and I hope you enjoy this one just as much.

    Just finished The Last Thing You See and wanted to read Writing our Song, but it was no longer available in Kindle format, only the hard copy. Due to arthritis in my hands, Kindle is the only way I can read. Can anyone help me out with a source for the Kindle format?
    Thanks in advance!
