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.”

My sweet, First World War romance, ‘Miss Millie’s Groom,’ will be free on Amazon from 9th to 13th February:

It is the summer of 1914 and Britain teeters on the brink of war. Society girl, Millicent Awbridge, is oblivious to the impending conflict and preoccupied with the recent shooting of her horse. When she confronts the culprit, Ryan O’Flynn, a groom in her father’s service, Millie finds romance rather than hostility. The encounter sparks a series of events that brings Millie’s burgeoning womanhood to fruition.
     Millie and Ryan’s affair is conducted in secret but Millie’s aunt has her suspicions and is determined to bring an end to it. Inevitably, the war also impacts on the young people’s lives and others are implicated in the muddle. Will Millie and Ryan ever be truly united?

I’m happy to report that I have recently finished writing another wartime romance – this time of novella length and set in the First World War.  I started work on it during last year’s NaNoWriMo event but only completed it in time for the start of this November – better late than never!
