A Happy/Sad Day

It's a day of mixed emotions here at Pembroke cottage. On the one hand, it's release day for Christmas at Rosewood, and I'm so excited! When I originally wrote The Last Days of Summer, many moons ago, the story was split into two parts - one set in the summer, one the following Christmas. While… Continue reading A Happy/Sad Day

“I have a proposal for you…”

Dylan and Sadie's story is out today! A Proposal Worth Millions was a real labour of love, and it's such a relief to have it out on virtual and real bookshelves across the UK, North America and Australia this week.

Release day for Tom and Violet!

Falling for the Bridesmaid is out in shops and on e-shelves in the UK, Australia and North America today! Romantic Times gave it a brilliant 4* review, saying: Readers will get a kick out of the dry humour and several ups and downs, which make Pembroke's latest a real page turner.

A Marriage of Convenience?

Confession: I am a total sucker for marriage of convenience stories. I've read hundreds of them, but have only really written one - His Very Convenient Bride, out this month from Harlequin Romance / Mills and Boon Cherish.  I think what I like most about them is how inconvenient the marriage always turns out to be. And… Continue reading A Marriage of Convenience?

Back to School

It's September 1st! As much as I love summer - and this one has been particularly awesome - there's something about the start of autumn that makes me want to buy a new notebook and pencil case and start planning stuff. (Okay, full disclosure, I want that notebook and pencil case pretty much all year… Continue reading Back to School

Release day for Thea and Zeke!

This was such a perfectly summery book to… Continue reading Release day for Thea and Zeke!

My Summer of Love at the RNA Conference

Writing can be a lonely business in some ways. I mean, yes, you have your beloved characters to keep you company and engage in the sort of dazzlingly quick dialogue you (well, I, anyway) never quite manage in real life, but it's not the same as talking to real people, is it? And even when… Continue reading My Summer of Love at the RNA Conference
