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!
Many thanks to Julie of Bookshelf Adventures, for her very thoughtful review of ‘Art & Grace.’
The book is available digitally and in print from Amazon and is still free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers.
I’m delighted to have recently been a guest author on Rita Lee Chapman’s blog. Read the interview here:
Many thanks to Rita for hosting me and featuring ‘Art & Grace.’
I’m running a Kindle Countdown deal for ‘Art & Grace,’ from 22nd to 29th August. During that period the book will be 99c / 99p, rather than its usual price of $2.99.
“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).
Many thanks to Siobhan for her very considered review of ‘Art & Grace’:
I’m delighted to report that, ‘Art & Grace,’ my novel set in Regency England, is now available on Amazon and enrolled in Kindle Unlimited.
Here’s the blurb:
Bristol, England, in the early Nineteenth Century. The slave trade has been abolished but slavery itself has not yet been outlawed.
Bess, a young woman of mixed heritage, has an ambiguous position in the home of the once-eminent Liston family. Raised and educated alongside the family’s children, Richard and Artemisia, she has been increasingly confined to the role of a domestic servant since the death of Joshua Liston, the household’s head.
When Richard Liston instigates an introduction between Captain Adam Bryce, a Royal Naval officer of repute, and his sister, Artemisia, Adam shows greater interest in Bess. Pressed by Artemisia to stalk Adam, Bess’s problems begin. And when the ailing matriarch, Elizabeth Liston, presents Bess with an impossible choice, the weaving of a web of deceit commences that will ultimately push Bess and Artemisia’s friendship to the brink.
As the scene shifts to rural Somerset, things are far from serene: Sebastian Weston, occupant of the grand Milton Abbey, means to hold both Bess and Artemisia in his thrall. Rivalries ensue, the bond between Artemisia and Bess being strained by their allegiances to the men in their lives.
Charting the turbulent waters of family commitments and amorous liaisons, it’s hard to fathom who to trust and whom to love.
