The book I was talking about in my last post (with sexy Irishman Conall Devlin) has been accepted and it will be published in April, 2016.   It's called THE BILLIONAIRE'S DEFIANT ACQUISITION.

Meet Devlin...

The story spawned a brand new hero - Prince Luc of Mardovia and I was inspired to write him by a film - the glorious musical version of CAMELOT, which starred Franco Nero.  Who can ever forget him as Lancelot du Lac, with those luminous blue eyes and that expression of torment as he struggles with the conflicting desires of duty versus passion?

Meet Luc...

I'm going to leave you with the delicious version of Lancelot singing his heart out to Guinevere.  If Ever I Would Leave You which is one of my favourite romantic songs.  

What's yours?

has an enigmatic and unbelievably gorgeous Irish billionaire hero, which gives me the perfect opportunity to post photos of my Irish muse - Cap'n Poldark aka Aidan Turner

A sublime definition of brooding....

Perfect, don't you think?

I took this picture when I was walking through Winall Moors - an area of outstanding natural beauty right in the middle of the city.  It's magical.

In other news, I have several new books out (and perhaps I should do the sensible thing of posting pictures of them).  But actually, for now - I think I prefer the feathery fronds which line the river Itchen...

On my phone are stacks of amazing photos from sculpture parks to Tuscan mountains, which I am planning to post here, but in the meantime there's a chance of winning an advance copy of my forthcoming book THE RUTHLESS GREEK'S RETURN.  Just click on this Goodreads link and it will take you straight there 

I won't tell you about the sizzlingly sexy Loukas Sarantos - I'll leave you discover him all by yourself...

*Have attempted a rather weak play on computer terminology to draw your attention to this competition!

if you're feeling lucky and would like to read my RT Top Pick story about a sizzlingly sexy Greek billionaire (with major hang-ups!) - then head right on over here to Goodreads for your chance to win a copy.

Yesterday I was most definitely not feeling lucky because my USB stick gobbled up four thousand words of my latest story as I was backing it up and all the IT intervention in the world couldn't get it back.

Sometimes I wish I still used a typewriter...

This has been an amazing week, so far.  My 95th book was accepted.  My March/April 2015 release has been chosen as a Romantic Times TOP PICK.  Oh, and I was on holiday in Cornwall.

Picture the scene.  It's February.  It's England.  The worst cold snap in aeons.  Yet I get this...

Beautiful, isn't it?  The photo was taken at the Lizard which is a secret backwater,  an area of outstanding natural beauty - and the most southwesterly point of the British mainland.  

It is also the stunning backdrop for the eagerly anticipated new series of Polldark, starring Aidan Turner.

So, not exactly on TOP of the world - but feeling pretty damned good.

All I want to know is how that bat has managed to fly onto my left hand without me noticing...

The UK cover for my April 2015 release arrived today and the jury is still out...
There's no sign of sexy Alek Sarantos, the powerful Greek billionaire hero - and the heroine is wearing a rather dodgy dress.

So I ask, do you like a book cover without a hero?

Or do you prefer the more conventional US version of the same title?
