Samantha, a seamstress, stows away on a ship bound for Australia, disguised as a boy. Discovered by the ship’s doctor, John Seacombe, she becomes his assistant. However, she rapidly finds that her growing feelings for Doctor John mean that her disguise is a hindrance, rather than a help. And when the feisty Estelle McEwan enters the scene, things become even more complicated for Sam.

A New Look for ‘Three Romances’ for Valentine’s Day

New Cover for historical romance anthology, 'Three Romances'

New Cover for historical romance anthology, ‘Three Romances’

I’m really thrilled to reveal my new cover for ‘Three Romances.’  It’s been difficult to find the right cover for a collection of stories that comprises a Regency romance, a Victorian romance and a story set in WWII.  But I think this one is perfect.  The ebook is available in all the usual places and also in print form so, if you’d like to read some sweet, historical romances to put you in the mood for 14th February, look no further…

And remember that my short Victorian romance, ‘High Sea,’ is currently free from Smashwords and its retailers.  I’m particularly delighted that it’s steadily climbing up the rankings on Barnes & Noble at present.

Here’s wishing everyone a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

‘High Sea’ will be free on Smashwords in the run up to Valentine’s day

To celebrate St Valentine’s Day, my short Victorian romance, ‘High Sea,’ will be published on Smashwords on Thursday 5th February and will be free initially.  The story is already available on Kindle and has some good ratings on Goodreads.

To readers who have said that, whilst they’ve enjoyed my short historical romances, they wished they had been longer, I’m happy to report that I am -finally!- working on a longer-length historical romance, and I’m really enjoying the process of writing a fuller story in this genre.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Anne Brontë: Giving the Forgotten Sister and Badass Feminist Author Her Due

Catherine E. Chapman:

Happy birthday Anne Bronte! Here’s an interesting article about her. Personally, I have to admit that ‘The Tenant of Wildfell Hall’ is a novel I found very hard-going, to the point that I gave up on reading it. However, ‘Agnes Grey’ is a little gem of a Nineteenth Century novel and, if you haven’t already read it, I would heartily recommend it!

Anne Brontë, born on January 17, 1820, is often the butt of Brontë jokes. She’s known as the forgotten Brontë sister, or the one with less talent compared to preternatural geniuses Charlotte and Emily. But this is a simplistic reading of her life. Anne lacked her sisters’ wild romanticism and affinity for dark heroes, but she had a strength and gift all her own, and leaves a strong feminist literary legacy.
