“Nabbed in New Zealand is a seductive and sexy new erotic romance that kicks up the heat a few notches in comparison to author Christine Edwards’ first 2 books. Laced with mild BDSM elements such as spanking, anal play and light D/s, Nabbed in New Zealand is great book to add to your library if you are interested in venturing into the BDSM scene for the first time, but it’s not just for newbies! It’s a must read if you dig erotic romance and enjoy a little kink in your love story.”
—Cherra Wammock, Bookie Nookie Reviews
“I loved the ‘oops, you mean you didn’t want me to kidnap this hot chick for you?’ storyline. This could have gone cheesy and over the top comical, but Christine Edwards did a great job turning it into the steamy fantasy we all secretly dream about. (Don’t lie, you know you do). Valla and Judge are smokin’ hot together too. It’s the kind of D/s relationship I’d love to have. The balance they achieve together was enviable. Many BDSM themed books, I’m often left wondering how the sub doesn’t feel like they’ve lost themselves. Definitely not the case here. Judge did not stifle the vivacious woman that Valla’s character was. This was a kick ass read.” Read more ….

“… The sex is unbelievably hot. The scenes are written with so much detail I feel like I’m in the room with Valla and Judge. I can feel the passion between the two.”
—Robin, Sizzling Hot Books
“This is one lustful read and I need to be on a plane to New Zealand, now! This is my first read of a Christine Edwards book and as soon as I finished I was on the hunt for more! She certainly knows how to write a smoking hot alpha.” Read more ….

“Nabbed in New Zealand by Christine Edwards is the exotic vacation you’ve always wanted to take. It’s full of beautiful locations, amazing scenery, and hot men.”
“From the beaches to the snowcapped treacherous mountains the setting is a great backdrop to this, sit on the edge of your seat, romance. The interactions (and by interactions I mean smex) between Valla and Judge are steamy and you can certainly feel the sexual tension jump off the page.”
—Beth, So Many Reads … So Little Time
“[Christine Edwards] knows how to do fast-paced erotic kidnapping stories and even better, she sets them in places I’ve never visited. It is clear that she takes the extra time to research her story locations so that the reader really feels they are there.” Read more ….
—Musings of Mistress of the Dark Path
Taking a break from her job at an art gallery in Charleston, South Carolina, Valla Denier escapes on a week-long camping tour of New Zealand with a small group of companions and two skilled guides. Valla is enchanted by the wild beauty of the South Island and Kaikoura Beach, as well as the local men. After catching the eye of a rugged, drop-dead-gorgeous man in a café, she is shocked to run into him later that evening at a karaoke bar. Setting her shyness aside, she serenades the stranger with a seductive tune. She never imagines the lyrics would be taken literally.
Later that evening, Valla is taken from her campsite and wakes up in a strange room. Her captor is the man from the bar, Brocan Judge, a six foot five wall of muscle with piercing, cobalt blue eyes. He is not responsible for her abduction; his friend has delivered Valla as a gift, and repairing the situation is not as simple as it sounds.
Valla soon learns that Judge is a Dom, intent on punishing her for her willful ways. Even more surprising is Valla’s reaction to him. When he offers her the choice to stay or leave, she must decide how far down the submissive path she is willing to travel. But trust has never been Valla’s strong suit. Will she be able to set aside her inhibitions and give in to the strong hand she has secretly craved, or will doubt trump her growing desire?
Says Christine, “When it came time for me to choose an exotic locale for my next romance novel I did not have to look far before deciding on the glorious island chain of New Zealand. The landscape is in itself heavenly, offering both snow-capped mountain ranges and breathtaking beaches. I was excited to learn that the less populated South Island has many remote areas with thrilling and mysterious sights for my hero and heroine to explore together. And then there’s the undeniably sexy Kiwi accent. My eyes nearly slide closed in appreciation whenever I hear that sensual lilt coming from a native New Zealander’s lips. This sealed the deal for me as the perfect romantic setting for my Valentine’s Day release, Nabbed in New Zealand.”

“And now, ladies and gents, hot on her awesome friend’s heels, we have another lovely American named Valla who has come to sing for us all the way from a state called South Carolina. Let’s have a big Kiwi welcome for Valla!”
Oh. My. God.Fuuuuccccck ….
At this moment in time, Mick’s alcohol-related prediction has come true. Thank goodness for the invention of strong beer. Here goes nothing ….
“Step on up, little lady. Good God, do you all agree that these Americans here tonight all look like they stepped right off the pages of Maxim, boys? Wow! Here’s the mic, little Valla, and I’m excited because I haven’t played this terrific song for anyone in quite a while. Now I have to ask, is there any lucky bloke in particular you would like to dedicate this to tonight? If not, I’m sure there will be plenty of them waiting for you when you finish.”
I dip my head and say into the mic, “Let’s just say that he knows exactly who he is … and the feeling is mutual.”
“Woooooh!” the dj and drunken crowd call out. “I suppose we have a little game of clue going on with this song then! Have at it, little gal.”
Fiona Apple’s “Criminal” fills the room. I know the song by heart and the suggestive, coy lyrics seem perfectly fitting for the lust that is mounting in me for this complete stranger. Just as the first sensual words fall from my lips, I land him with a ‘give it to me now, bad boy’ heated stare. He about drops his beer as every muscle in his body goes as tense as a two-by-four.
I let the opening line flow from my lips, letting him know what a bad girl I’ve been, as I watch him innocently through my long lashes. I thought that I would have trouble getting through it but the way he’s watching me, nearly transfixed, makes me feel as if we are the only two people left on the planet. Two people who want each other with a tangible passion.
My confidence is building as I continue on, swinging my hips to and fro. My long hair swishes across my lower back as I croon on about needing to be taught a lesson by a man like him. The submissive suggestion is sinfully blatant.
Even at this distance I can make out the thick ridge of his impressive cock straining against the front of his jeans. Or maybe my imagination is in overdrive …. My heart rate thunders as Fiona’s luscious lyrics pour out of my mouth, sung only for him, my sexy New Zealand mystery man.
