Cover reveal: A hunky trio of Firemen!

Ahhhhhhhh, the covers for Vonnie Davis’s new Wild Heat series are in and we love them! We are definitely big fans of anything involving a fireman. Is it the uniforms that make them so sexy? Or is it the hard bodies, heavy equipment and big hoses? Whatever it is, they are definitely on the list of Top Ten Sexiest Professions and we are so excited to share these books with you.

Acquisition announcement and cover reveal: Cold Feet at Christmas

We are thrilled to announce a brand new author for the HarperImpulse list – Debbie Johnson. Her novel, Cold Feet at Christmas features remote Scottish castle on a snowy Christmas Eve, a handsome husband-to-be and a dress to die for. It should have been the happiest day of Leah Harvey’s life – but the fairytale wedding turns sour when she finds her fiancé halfway up the bridesmaid’s skirt just hours before the ceremony!

Cold Feet at Christmas is the first of our Christmas titles for 2014. What do you think of the cover? Isn’t it gorgeous?

 

Celebrating a brilliant book birthday

Beyond Graces Rainbow new

On the 12th September, Beyond Grace’s Rainbow celebrated it’s first birthday. It’s so hard to believe that it’s only a year since Harper Collins’ digital imprint, Harper Impulse, sprinkled their magic on Grace’s story and published my debut novel.

And so with a little bit of serendipity, I spent Grace’s book birthday in Harper Collins HQ in London! It was so nice to say hello to the team there – who work so tirelessly to get our books published and marketed and ultimately onto bookshelves.

Once my meetings with Kimberley Young, Katie Sadler and my editor Charlotte Ledger (thanks for the beautiful lunch Charlotte and your continued support) were over, I made my way to Leighton Buzzard for the Festival of Romantic Fiction.

It was with great excitement going back to this event, because Beyond Grace’s Rainbow won the Romantic eBook of 2013 at their annual book awards last year. This time, I had the pleasure of introducing the shortlisted nominees in the category this year and saying those wonderful words – ‘And the winner is….’

Opening that enveloped was so exciting and I am so pleased for Jo Thomas, author of the bestselling novel The Oyster Catcher, who is this years winner. As I said on the night, if Jo has half as much fun as I’ve had since I won the award last year, she’s in for one hell of a ride!

Jo’s book incidentally is set in Galway, so maybe there’s something about Ireland that is lucky for this category! The luck of the Irish rings true here I think! Just saying….

The weekend at the festival was a lot of fun. I got to channel my inner ‘Bianca’ and get all east end like, by attending the book fair which was held in the bustling weekly Leighton Buzzard market. I just about managed to curb my desire to scream ‘Ricky!’at the top of my voice and was so thrilled to sell all of my books. A really good feeling!

One of the highlights of the weekend for me, was taking part in an event, an author discussion panel with Katie Fforde, Liz Fenwick, Fiona Harper and Tracy Bloom.

All ladies are a source of inspiration to me, and it was an honour to share the stage with them.

I won’t lie, having George Clooney close by – courtesy of Tracy – wasn’t too shabby either!

Watch out Rog…

The past year has surpassed all of my wildest dreams and ambitions and sometimes I must pinch myself when I think about how well Beyond Grace’s Rainbow and now The Life You Left have done and the adventures I’ve been on, courtesy of Grace and Sarah’s stories.

Lastly, I need to thank the fans of my books, who have been so warm and supportive. I can’t wait to see what the next year brings.

Thank you so much.

Cover reveal: The Love List

Love List

What a gorgeous cover for Eve Devon’s new book, The Love List. How great are those shoes!?

Falling in love is just not on Nora King’s To Do List…

Neither is accidentally super-gluing her shoe to her hand right before the biggest presentation of her life!

With all the hard work she’d put into securing the family business after her father’s death, Nora has no choice but to accept help from a knight in shining armour.

Disaster relief worker Ethan Love is still haunted by his last deployment, and desperate for distraction. He’s in town to ask Nora for a major favour, and swooping in to save her presentation is a sure way to get her on side.

As Ethan sticks around and helps Nora through her grief, her barriers tumble down…but will she dare to swap her To Do lists for a How to Fall in Love list?

Pre-order your copy of Love List, out 2nd October, now
