I’m excited to reveal the cover for my July release, A Wager for the Widow. Although I’d been not-too-secretly hoping for my gorgeous hero Will (looking like a cross between Alexander Skasgard and Chris Hemsworth) I’m really pleased with the result. The model’s shade of hair is exactly right for my feisty widow Eleanor. It’s aContinue reading “A Wager for the Widow cover reveal and excerpt”
When I signed my second contract my editor Julia invited me to visit the Harlequin office and go out for lunch which I was really looking forward to (despite being a gibbering wreck about meeting real people). I’ll freely own up to being ridiculously nervous about being unmasked as a complete fraud in front ofContinue reading “A visit and a video”
This time last year I was reeling from The Call. Feeling nostalgic I decided to look back through this blog to reminisce and discovered I never wrote about it. So here it is: Have you ever wondered how writers feel when they finally get The Call? I know I have. Whenever I fantasised about itContinue reading “One year on”

A very short post because it’s been a long week. In my other job I’ve had a lesson observation and am in the throes of rehearsals for the Christmas play (insert all the traditional cliches about 5 year olds in Nativities- they’re all true). On my non-school days (I hesitate to call them days off)Continue reading “Celebrating”
His corn-coloured hair fell in loose tangles to his shoulder. Close up his eyes were startlingly blue.
Back long before I ever thought I’d get published I made a Facebook page for the book and amused myself by deciding who I would like to play the parts. For a bit of a distraction on a wet, gloomy Sunday afternoon here is the album. Hugh alternates between being Richard Armitage and Tom EllisContinue reading “Casting the roles”
Falling for Her Captor has been out for two weeks now and has already received some lovely reviews so I decided I’d celebrate with an excerpt. It was late before the Duke allowed Aline to return to her chamber. In a daze she barely registered the fact that the door was unguarded and unlocked. WalkingContinue reading “Excerpt Wednesday”
