Evie Hunter

Evie Hunter is a pseudonym for Eileen Gormley and Caroline McCall. 

Eileen Gormley grew up in the midlands of Ireland.  Within a couple of years of leaving college, she started writing articles for local papers and graduated to becoming a full-time freelance journalist for the Irish National newspapers, specializing in court and crime reporting. Her first novel, DON’T FEED THE FAIRIES, made it to the quarter-final of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award and was published by Ragz Books.   

Raised on a diet of romance and science fiction, Caroline McCall turned to writing time travel and paranormal romance. She lives with her partner, and several spoilt, ungrateful felines, on the windswept east coast of Ireland. A mild mannered paralegal by day, Caroline spends most of her evenings and weekends dreaming up alpha males and feisty heroines.  

Together they co-wrote ANGELS, DEMONS AND DOMS for American publisher, Ellora’s Cave.  THE PLEASURES OF WINTER, their first erotica title with Penguin Ireland, went straight to No.3 on the Irish charts.  


THE PLEASURES OF AUTUMN (Penguin, October 2013)

The Pleasures of Autumn by Evie Hunter

When museum curator Sinead O’Sullivan is charged with stealing the Fire of Autumn, a dazzling ruby with a history of violence and treachery, bail is set at one million Swiss francs. Investigator Niall Moore is hired to stop her fleeing and to find the jewel.

Their sexual chemistry is electric but logic says to ignore it. Desperate as she is to convince Niall of her innocence, Sinead cannot reveal everything she knows. And the feisty red-head’s improbable tale tells him that she is not to be trusted.

Yet it’s impossible to ignore the carnal heat between them. Niall, an expert interrogator, uses every trick of the trade – and every weapon in his erotic armoury – to get at the truth. Sinead, a fast learner, counters his every move with one of her own. Thief and thief-taker fight for dominance and there can be only one winner.

But what happens in their red-hot game of cat-and-mouse when criminals chasing the precious jewel come after Sinead … and the stakes become deadly?

This is another of hot-hot-hot tale of romantic obsession and explosive sexual chemistry, a novel that fans of Sylvia Day, Kitty French and E.L. James will love and devour.

THE PLEASURES OF SUMMER (Penguin, May 2013)

The Pleasures of Summer by Evie Hunter

Summer O’Sullivan is rich, beautiful and in mortal danger. Her father has powerful enemies who are targeting his precious daughter. Summer needs a bodyguard – someone to protect her and to treat her with the reverence she’s used to.

Into Summer’s gilded cage comes former ranger, Flynn Grant. As far as Flynn is concerned, this is the assignment from hell, minding the spoilt daughter of a multi-millionaire. Summer and Flynn are poised to hate each other on sight. Even his devastating looks do not make up for how Flynn’s rules cramp Summer’s style. But when Summer breaks the rules one time too often, Flynn teaches her a lesson that leaves them shattered – and bound together in a way that astonishes them both.

In their remote hideout, the two start a battle over who is the tamer, and who is the tamed. It’s a duel that stretches their minds and bodies beyond every limit. And in time their hearts begin to surrender too.

When journalist Abbie Marshall needs to get out of Honduras fast, a private jet carrying a Hollywood a-lister is an offer she can’t refuse. She has a ride home if she covers a lifestyle story for her newspaper – an interview with Jack Winter, notorious womaniser and all round bad boy.

When their plane crashes in the Honduran jungle, they must fight against nature as they make their way to safety.  Away from the cameras, Jack reveals another side of himself, his tough guy image is more than just an act and he prefers his pleasure mixed with pain.   A brush with danger in the jungle leads to the most explosive sexual encounters of either of their lives.

When she returns home, Abbie finds herself at the centre of a media storm and a broken engagement.  If Abbie wants a relationship with Jack, she must learn to embrace his world and in doing so explore her own sexual fantasies. Gradually, Jack takes control of her life until she becomes obsessed with him. Unprepared for the feelings she has provoked in him, Jack struggles to maintain an emotional barrier between them. Abbie is drawn deeper into the dark heart of Winter and the secret that threatens to destroy his career.

When his past is revealed, Jack believes that she has betrayed him and Abbie flees to the one place she knows he will never follow her. Or will he?
