Watched the most amazing programme yesterday called NATURE'S MIRACLE BABIES.  Yes, it's a cheesy title - but it's a remarkable short film about endangered species, which are being bred in captivity.  There are Barbary Lions and beautiful leopards - cute and fluffy little things with a fierce snarl and razor sharp teeth.  There's a very moving live birth of a gorilla at London Zoo.  
The film highlights the care and dedication shown by people who look after animals and it made me fish out this photo of a monkey which I took back in March, when I was staying with friends in Singapore.

Any ideas what to call this monkey?
A glossy hardback novel for the best suggestion.

I'm very excited about my latest hero - a sexy English Duke named Titus Alexander and the woman who is driving him crazy.  

Roxy Carmichael is a woman who has fallen on hard-times.  A one-time singer with a dodgy background, she's the last person this blood-blooded billionaire wants in his life.  But Roxy needs help and to his fury - Titus feels duty-bound to provide it.  He takes her to Valeo Hall - his stately home on the beautiful Norfolk coast - and that's when the fireworks really start....

This is the UK cover, which came as a bit of a shock because I don't remember giving Titus so much designer stubble that it seems to have grown into a small beard!  But the man featured here manages to convey a brooding and potent sexuality - and that is very Titus.

I loved writing this story and I love the chemistry which sizzles between the unlikely couple.  It's a long time since I've had an English "toff" hero, and I hope you enjoy Titus as much as Roxy eventually does....
