My story about Conall Devlin spawned a brand-new hero, Prince Luc of Mardovia and his story has now been written, sold and will be published in August 2016 as CROWNED FOR THE PRINCE'S HEIR.
And here is another man (apart from the actor Franco Nero) who  I used as my template for my sky-blue-eyed royal.  Approve?

The other piece of news is that I've been shortlisted for a Romantic Times award, for best Presents of 2015.  It's for my book CARRYING THE GREEK'S HEIR, featuring Alek Sarantos - very irresistible Hellenic billionaire.  Yum.

Am slightly dazed and delighted to be up for an award after 90-something books and thrilled to learn that the ceremony will be held in Las Vegas - a place I honestly never thought I'd visit (except during trips to the cinema).  
Anyone been there?  What are the best bits?  And do I have to look out for SNAKES?


  1. Congratulations! That's brilliant news.
    Las Vegas -- it's an astonishing place. Where else can you be serenaded in an electric gondola plying through startlingly turquoise waters, then hop off for a spot of shopping in ancient Rome before heading up the Eiffel Tower? Supercharged inspiration surrounds you, but for the ultimate hero hangout I'd recommend a nose in the Mandarin Oriental, 20 floors up above the throng on the Strip. Arriving in its Sky Lobby is a gobsmackingly glamorous experience...

  2. Thanks for the advice, Jack - you are certainly well-travelled! I'll be sure to post some photos from this fascinating city (or is it a town?).
