‘Collected Romances’ – on Amazon Kindle

‘Collected Romances’ book cover

I have published a collection of my seven short historical romances on Amazon Kindle, to give readers a book that is of overall novel-length:



‘Collected Romances’ contains the short stories: Brizecombe Hall, Kitty, The Hangar Dance, Danburgh Castle, Braggot Park, Rhiannon and High Sea.  At $2.99 it’s great value compared to buying the stories individually.

I do appreciate that some readers are either looking for only clean romances or are after something more sensual, and this collection contains both, so all stories may not be to everbody’s liking!

To clarify the rating of the stories, Brizecombe Hall, Kitty and The Hangar Dance are all sweet romances.  They are also available in the collection, ‘Three Romances,’ from both Amazon and Smashwords.

High Sea, only available individually at Amazon at present, is also a sweet romance.

Danburgh Castle, Braggot Park and Rhiannon are more sensual romances and are available as a collection of ‘Three Medieval Romances‘ from both Amazon and Smashwords.

I’m really pleased to be having lots of downloads of both Collected Romances and High Sea through Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited programme.  It seems this is a great way for authors to connect with new readers.

I’m running a promo of Collected Romances on Amazon Kindle from Friday 3rd October.  It’s a Kindle Countdown Deal, which means that on Amazon UK, the book will cost 99p, rather than £1.99, from 3rd – 10th October, and that on Amazon.com it will cost $0.99 from 3-5 October and then $1.99 from 6-10 October, so if you’d like to buy the book but want to hold out for a bargain price, grab it on 3rd October!


‘High Sea’ – Short Victorian Romance

‘High Sea’ -Victorian Romance- book cover

My latest novelette in the genre of historical romance is ‘High Sea,’ a story set in the Victorian era.  Here’s the blurb:

 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.

As an introductory promotion, the book will be free on Amazon Kindle from 16th – 20th August:



I hope readers enjoy it.  Although the Victorian era is familiar territory for me, this books differs from most of my writing in that it’s written from the point of view of a first person narrator.  (I actually have in mind the narrative style of earlier, 18th century novels.)  So, in this respect, it’s a departure.  I’ve written short stories in the first person but tend to go for third person narrators for anything longer, but I really enjoyed writing in the voice of Sam / Samantha!

If you read ‘High Sea’ and like it, I would appreciate reviews and ratings on Amazon and elsewhere.
