The Magic of London – Nikki Moore

I have always loved London, ever since my first trip to an art museum with the Brownies when I was twelve years old. The buildings, the parks, the bustle, the people, the diversity, the sheer sprawling mass of it sparked a love story that has never ended. I’ve been there many times over the years; in my late teens to see theatre productions for my A’Levels; for parties and conferences for the Romantic Novelists Association; for weekend breaks when I explored the city and took photos to my heart’s content; for meetings with my lovely editor Charlotte – she took me to The Ritz for a cocktail to discuss what was to become my debut novel Crazy, Undercover, Love, which almost made my head explode…

The Revelation.

Testing, testing, can everyone read this? Hello? *waves hand in front of screen* Okay, I’m just going to go right head, read at your own peril! Hi and welcome to the Harper Impulse blog – today on the agenda; we’re about to find out who the brains (questionable) are behind the Harper Impulse social media accounts! We’ve had a lot, and by a lot, I really do mean A LOT of requests about who the mysterious people are behind our hilarious (correct!) Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

What Would You Do? || by Vivien Brown

When she was good she was very, very good. But when she was bad she was horrid We’ve all seen it in the movies. A character has a decision to make, and there’s a little angel sitting there on one shoulder, telling him to do the right thing, the sensible, law-abiding, boring thing… while a little devil on the other is saying quite the opposite: Go on, risk it! You know you want to. You’ve got nothing to lose. Of course there are no angels and devils really. It’s the two sides of our own personality battling it out to decide which is right. Usually, both have equally valid points of view. If they didn’t, the decision would be easy. No contest! But, if both…

Stories Among The Storeys || by Vivien Brown

When I was in my twenties, I lived in a ground floor maisonette.  An elderly couple lived upstairs. We each had our own entrance door from the street, so there were no communal hallways or staircases to squabble over or keep clean, but we did share a back garden, me using the half closest to the back door and them the patch at the far end. It all worked very well. In fact, most of the time, I could almost forget they were there. Oh, I’d sometimes hear the hum of their washing machine through my ceiling, or distant voices coming from their TV when mine was switched off, but that was all. We nodded hello, got to know each other’s names, and I once…

My Perfect Romantic Mixtape || by Mary Jayne Baker

My new romantic comedy, Meet Me at the Lighthouse, is all about the power of music. The hero, Ross, is a talented singer-songwriter who teams up with heroine Bobbie to bring their town’s dilapidated Victorian lighthouse back to life as a music venue. Of course it’s not all smooth sailing, either for the lighthouse or the course of true love, with hostile councillors, ex-partners and secrets the two friends would just as soon keep buried waiting to throw obstacles in their way. To celebrate the release, I’ve put together my perfect romantic playlist, just the thing for those candlelit, snuggle-filled evenings. You can find the Spotify playlist at the bottom of this post, or you can look the tracks up for yourself. Enjoy! Angels –…
