I am so delighted with Bookangel’s very thorough review of ‘Miss Millie’s Groom,’ my romance set during the First World War. Here’s an excerpt:
‘I’m glad to say this is one of the few [books] where the lead character does grow and learn throughout the story. The characters come across well and are consistent in what they are doing with all their flaws intact. This makes for a more interesting read as, to begin with, Millicent’s youth and inexperience are obvious, while those around her act in a more realistic manner. The setting around the war provides a solid backdrop to the events and helps to provide an interesting set of circumstances and situations to be overcome.
As a romance, it ticks all the right boxes, and it’s a pleasure to see it come with a well-written story behind it. Readers looking for a HEA will certainly enjoy it,’ (4-star review, Bookangel.co.uk).
I am delighted that the book recently received its first rating on Barnes & Noble and it’s 5 stars! Here’s an extract from the review of the book that appeared on the Romantic Historical Reviews website in November 2016:
“Millicent is vivacious, endearing and determined. I truly enjoyed her character a great deal from the first page to the last. She reminded me of Sybil from Downton Abbey; in fact, this novel has other overtones from that drama.”
Also, if you have Kindle Unlimited, ‘The Laird’s Right-Hand Lady’ (which has a seasonal feel, being set during winter in the Scottish Highlands) and ‘Miss Millie’s Groom,’ are both free to download through that scheme:

St George’s Day and the birthday of the Bard seems the perfect time to broadcast the fact that, ‘Kitty,’ my most English of short romances, is currently free to download from Smashwords and its retailers. Intended as an homage to Jane Austen, the story has been praised for its social comedy but it is also very much a sweet romance:
