A story with a seasonal feel, it’s the perfect holiday read.
‘The Laird’s Right-Hand Lady,’ a contemporary romance, set in the Scottish Highlands, is newly-published on Amazon and currently available on Kindle Unlimited:
Here’s the blurb:
Jess Fielding is Cameron McCallum’s newly-appointed personal assistant. He is due to take over from his father as Laird on their Scottish Highland estate. Used to the corporate world, Jess finds that, whilst the professional demands of her new role are straightforward, the domestic and family dynamics in Cameron’s stately home leave her feeling daunted.
Instantly attracted to Cameron, Jess begins to suspect that her feelings are reciprocated. But the appearance of Alexandra, an old university friend of Cameron’s, upsets their blossoming romance.
Cameron’s father is determined that his son should make a match fit for a Laird. Will Cameron live up to his father’s expectations or follow his heart?
… because apparently books really are judged by their covers!
I have been digesting the advice of Mark Coker (Smashwords Founder and Self-Publishing Guru) and, as a result, have decided to embark on a process of revamping my bookcovers. Having now become a lot clearer about defining my short historical stories as ‘Romance,’ I figure that, accordingly, their covers should be romantic!
First to get the treatment is ‘Brizecombe Hall,’ my Regency / Victorian romance. I acquired this cover from Self Pub Book Covers.com and I’m really thrilled with it. Their site is a great concept, I think, connecting authors and artists and enabling authors to browse loads of designers’ images and customise them.
To herald the referendum on Scottish independence, celebrate the long-awaited return of Kate Bush to the stage and mark the drawing in of the nights here in the UK, Elizabeth Clansham is currently free to download from Smashwords & its retailers:
It’s a novel in two parts and has been described as a quirky romance. I categorise it as women’s fiction too. There are a number of good reviews on Goodreads and elsewhere and I would love to have more so if you do read the book and enjoy it, please post a review.
As we approach Easter here in the UK, the weather is decidedly unseasonal. The prevailing snow and sub-zero temperatures mean it’s the perfect time to take advantage of a final opportunity to acquire ‘Elizabeth Clansham,’ my novella set in the snowy Scottish Highlands, before it ceases to be free on Smashwords after Easter. As the anti-hero, Andrew, is given to saying (though, of course, he doesn’t actually adhere to his adage), ‘It’s the things you don’t do in life that you regret,’ so get hold of the book for free while you still can!
If you read and enjoy either book, I’d be appreciative of ratings, recommendations and reviews anywhere and everywhere.
