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!

I was really pleased to discover this morning that ‘The Hangar Dance,’ one of the stories in the collection, was almost! within the top 5k books on Amazon UK ranking – not bad for my little World War II romance!

It’s already had some great reviews, with readers appreciating that it’s inspired by the works of Jane Austen, and has been said to, ‘capture the spirit of our well-loved Regency romances far better than some lengthier works,’ (Review, Feb. 2013).
