Contemporary Fiction

Welcome to my website  


Thank you for visiting my website.  I write contemporary women's fiction.  Since 2007 I have completed six novels, all of which are available from and in both PAPERBACK and KINDLE editions. Story details below.






Meeting Blake Hennessey in New York changes Hazel Munro’s life forever. He is the charismatic, sophisticated boss of the advertising company she works for. She is immediately smitten and is astonished when she realises he feels the same way! His friend Zac thinks she is a blatant gold-digger, but when Blake proposes to her, there is a much bigger bone of contention – where the two of them will live. Hazel’s home is in Scotland and she has no intention of moving to Manhattan.

Sparks fly when Hazel realises exactly what Blake’s “compromise” is on this issue and the future doesn’t look quite so rosy for either of them.

A personal shock forces Hazel to deal with a life-changing situation, which alters her point of view. Meanwhile, however, Blake has developed a major problem of his own. He is heading down a long, dark tunnel. Can Hazel reach him in time to avert disaster and save him from himself?

Tom, a work colleague Lola really likes, asks her out, but he does it on the day that news of her win spreads through the office and she sadly turns him down.

When Lola and her mother excitedly set off on a Mediterranean cruise, they both meet men they are interested in. However, their dream holiday catapults them into a series of dramatic events that neither of them will ever forget. When she eventually has to return to reality, Lola unexpectedly finds herself involved with Tom again! But the storm clouds are looming overhead, and as the recent past catches up with her and she confronts danger once more, Tom is terrified that he won’t be able to reach her in time.

BEST FIVE-STAR REVIEW (Goodreads) : Melissa Parkin  -  Won this book through a giveaway, and I'm so happy I did! Great portrayal of the VERY likable lead character. It's a terrific read worth devouring with a unique premise that has you drawn in by Lola's humbleness. Can't wait to read more by Ms. Rae.


Three sisters, April, Belinda and June, have lived together happily in their Glasgow home until the day that April introduces her boyfriend Scott to her family – and Belinda falls for him. She eventually admits to herself that she’s in love with him – at the same time as her sister becomes engaged to him!

When Scott helps Belinda with some difficult family problems, she falls even deeper under his spell, but becomes reluctantly engaged to her own boyfriend Jim. Scott and Belinda draw closer as they desperately try to stop Belinda’s friend from becoming suicidal. Just as Scott finally admits he loves Belinda, Fate strikes again. If they had felt trapped before, it’s nothing to how they feel when a traumatic situation brings events to a dramatic, life-changing conclusion.

BEST FIVE-STAR REVIEW (Amazon) - Lorraine Sutherland:

A thrilling and thoroughly enjoyable read. Gives an insight to a normal family life living in the city of Glasgow. Especially centring on the lives of three sisters. The twists and turns were incredible and the unexpected ending in the building society was the icing on the cake for me.

Spellbinding, thrilling, brilliant and I would recommend this book to anyone.

5-STAR REVIEW on Amazon

Another great read from Rosanna Rae. Intriguing, creative, wrestling with your emotions and imagination. A “can’t put it down” book.  Thoroughly enjoyable. I would recommend to anyone.

Jo's Dilemma

BEST 4-STAR REVIEW (Goodreads) - Julie Whiteley:

Rosanna's novels seem to not only focus on romance, but also on the family dynamic. There is one main couple, but the whole family is involved and at stake through out the novel. I really like that about her novels.

Families are complicated under the best of circumstances, but throw some serious issues in that are very, very, sensitive, that could tear apart relationships forever and you've a page turner! I read this one practically in one sitting.
