How could I forget to tell you???

I have just sent some updates off to my wonderful webmistress for my website and realised that I have not shared my latest news with all my visitors or followers! How could not have told you that before Christmas I sold my next novel to Lyrical Press, yay!!

'Paying The Piper' is a contemporary romance novel set in the UK - it has a grittier subject matter and heroine than I have written before but I LOVE this book and pray that you will too. As soon as I have a release date and/or cover I will let you know. In the meantime, here's the blurb and the pics of the people I used as inspiration for the hero and heroine!


Nightclub manager, Grace Butler is on a mission to buy the pub where her mother’s ashes are scattered – except the vendor wants to sell to anyone but her. And the vendor happens to be her father…with a secret Grace will do anything to uncover.

Social worker and all-round good guy, Jimmy Betts needs cash to buy a house for three special kids before their care home closes. In a desperate bid for cash, he agrees to a one-time ‘job’ for bad-man Karl Butler. But in a sudden turn of events, Jimmy finds himself employed by Karl’s beautiful, funny and incredibly sexy daughter, Grace.

Their lives couldn’t be more different – except for one binding thread. They’re both trying to escape the bonds of their fathers. But is it possible the only way they will ever be free, is to be together rather than alone?
