‘The Laird’s Right-Hand Lady’ free on Smashwords

There’s a distinct nip in the air here in the UK, so I’m looking forward to Autumn and Winter, and running a free promotion of my contemporary romance, ‘The Laird’s Right-Hand Lady,’ to get into the mood.  Set on a Highland Estate, it’s the perfect read for a chilly day!

“This is not your normal Regency novel; it’s something different. Well-written, with plenty to love throughout, it’s a story that will have you hooked,” (Bibliophile Ramblings).

My Review of ‘Sal’ by Mick Kitson

Since it’s World Book Day, I thought it would be good for the soul to write a review of a book I recently read and thoroughly enjoyed.  Sal, by Mick Kitson, is newly-published on Amazon.

It’s difficult to broach the main theme of this book without giving too much away. Suffice to say that Sal commits the most serious of crimes and yet has the reader’s full sympathy. The book explores the extents to which Sal goes in the name of sisterly love but the most poignant aspect of the narrative is her endless support of her errant mother. A strong tension is created in that Sal’s stark recounting of events leaves the reader feeling far less sympathetic towards Maw.

I loved this book. It wasn’t for the fine detailing of Sal and Peppa’s time in the wilderness but for the compelling nature of the underlying story that Sal is telling throughout. The classic adventure stories that are referenced in the book are, superficially, the model for what this story itself is, but, at a deeper level, Sal leaves us questioning the society in which we live today.

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!
