Now all I need is an excuse to wear it...

Tuesday, 1 December 2015


My story about Conall Devlin spawned a brand-new hero, Prince Luc of Mardovia and his story has now been written, sold and will be published in August 2016 as CROWNED FOR THE PRINCE'S HEIR.
And here is another man (apart from the actor Franco Nero) who  I used as my template for my sky-blue-eyed royal.  Approve?

The other piece of news is that I've been shortlisted for a Romantic Times award, for best Presents of 2015.  It's for my book CARRYING THE GREEK'S HEIR, featuring Alek Sarantos - very irresistible Hellenic billionaire.  Yum.

Am slightly dazed and delighted to be up for an award after 90-something books and thrilled to learn that the ceremony will be held in Las Vegas - a place I honestly never thought I'd visit (except during trips to the cinema).  
Anyone been there?  What are the best bits?  And do I have to look out for SNAKES?

The book I was talking about in my last post (with sexy Irishman Conall Devlin) has been accepted and it will be published in April, 2016.   It's called THE BILLIONAIRE'S DEFIANT ACQUISITION.

Meet Devlin...

The story spawned a brand new hero - Prince Luc of Mardovia and I was inspired to write him by a film - the glorious musical version of CAMELOT, which starred Franco Nero.  Who can ever forget him as Lancelot du Lac, with those luminous blue eyes and that expression of torment as he struggles with the conflicting desires of duty versus passion?

Meet Luc...

I'm going to leave you with the delicious version of Lancelot singing his heart out to Guinevere.  If Ever I Would Leave You which is one of my favourite romantic songs.  

What's yours?

has an enigmatic and unbelievably gorgeous Irish billionaire hero, which gives me the perfect opportunity to post photos of my Irish muse - Cap'n Poldark aka Aidan Turner

A sublime definition of brooding....

Perfect, don't you think?

I took this picture when I was walking through Winall Moors - an area of outstanding natural beauty right in the middle of the city.  It's magical.

In other news, I have several new books out (and perhaps I should do the sensible thing of posting pictures of them).  But actually, for now - I think I prefer the feathery fronds which line the river Itchen...

On my phone are stacks of amazing photos from sculpture parks to Tuscan mountains, which I am planning to post here, but in the meantime there's a chance of winning an advance copy of my forthcoming book THE RUTHLESS GREEK'S RETURN.  Just click on this Goodreads link and it will take you straight there 

I won't tell you about the sizzlingly sexy Loukas Sarantos - I'll leave you discover him all by yourself...

*Have attempted a rather weak play on computer terminology to draw your attention to this competition!

if you're feeling lucky and would like to read my RT Top Pick story about a sizzlingly sexy Greek billionaire (with major hang-ups!) - then head right on over here to Goodreads for your chance to win a copy.

Yesterday I was most definitely not feeling lucky because my USB stick gobbled up four thousand words of my latest story as I was backing it up and all the IT intervention in the world couldn't get it back.

Sometimes I wish I still used a typewriter...
