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?

Release day for Thea and Zeke!

It's August at last! Apart from meaning I'm only two weeks away from a truly epic family holiday (10 people, 2 under sixes, 7 days, 1 flat...) it also means it's release day for my latest Harlequin Mills and Boon Romance - A Groom Worth Waiting For. This was such a perfectly summery book to… Continue reading Release day for Thea and Zeke!

The Friday before last, I headed up to Sheffield for the Romantic Novelist's Association Conference. I was, I'll admit, a little nervous, it being my first one. But I really needn't… Continue reading Conferences, Contracts and Celebrations

Stranded with the Tycoon was the first category romance I ever wrote, and I loved doing it so much I had to… Continue reading Cover Love for Ben and Luce!

A new look, and a new book cover!

This weekend, the lovely Renee Rocco at Lyrical Press sent over the cover design for the third book in my Love from Wales series, Summer of Love, due out in December. I'd been somewhat nervously awaiting this one, just because I love the first two covers in the series so much! When I had to… Continue reading A new look, and a new book cover!

My Bookiversary!

Happy Bookiversary to me!  On this day, last year, my first novel, Room for Love, was officially released. I was, due to a slight scheduling error, stuck up a castle in Derbyshire at the time, trying to manage release promos and blog tours via the non-existant 3G connection on my phone, and squealing every time… Continue reading My Bookiversary!
