Missing Guest means an 'off the cuff' post from me!!
Unfortunately, my scheduled guest for today couldn't deliver her post due to unforeseen work commitments so I will be filling in. I have nothing prepared so it gives me the perfect excuse to talk about my latest contract with the fabulous Wild Rose Press, even though I promised myself I wouldn't do this yet, LOL!
'Transtlantic Loving' is my first novella-length release and is part of a series of stories which make up a brand new series called The Class of '85. As soon as the senior editor of the Last Rose of Summer line at Wild Rose announced this series, I was desperate to be a part of it!
It is set around the down of Summerville, USA and the premise is either the hero, heroine or both, need to have been a part of the Class of 85. All these characters receive an invitation to attend the reunion and the invitation is the one common 'must-have' included in each story. The rest is up to the author - will they go? Where are they now? Were they prom queen? The geek? The stories abound and I LOVED the idea!
So I got busy scribbling away and 'Transatlantic Loving' was finished a couple of months later. Here's the blurb:
In a desperate bid to escape the bitter reality of her children accepting her ex-husband’s new – and younger – fiancée, Lisa Cavendish travels from the UK to accompany her friend to a high school reunion. Forced to dress as Madonna in her hey day, the last thing she expects is to fall in love with the school’s coach, who seems to hold as much regard for his child as her ex did when he walked out…
Aaron Taylor can’t believe his eyes or ears when he is introduced to Lisa – sexy and funny, she has no idea how her accent enhances the heartbreaking wait he endures waiting for his daughter to call him back to the UK. But after spending just three short weeks with Lisa, he sees the answer to his pain in the eyes of the most phenomenal British lady he has ever met…
I haven't a release date yet, folks but expect one any day now - keep coming back for the news!! What do you think? Do you like the cover? I love it and thank artist extraordinaire, Nicola Martinez from the bottom of my heart xxx
