When the first in the #LoveLondon series Skating at Somerset House was released last December, I had no idea of exactly how much hard work lay ahead of me, how brilliantly my editor Charlotte would support me through the mad rush of publishing five novellas and a full length novel in nine months, or how amazingly readers, reviewers and bloggers would react to the series. Now I know, and I find myself both happy and sad that the last in the #LoveLondon series, Picnics in Hyde Park is published.
It has been an ecstatic, joy filled and crazy whirlwind – a bit like falling in love. I am still stunned at how many lovely reviews the series has had and that some of the novellas have made it into the Top 100 short story chart on Kobo and the Top 20 Holiday chart on Amazon UK. So, thank you to everyone who has bought and reviewed any of the #LoveLondon series, I am truly grateful.
I’ve had such a blast writing the series and have spent many a happy hour wandering around London (okay, and drinking too) for research (see my previous post here http://www.harperimpulseromance.com/why-i-lovelondon). For me, London is magical; diverse, sprawling, modern and historic, teeming with life and love.
I have visited Somerset House, walked (shivered) on Primrose Hill, had cocktails at The Ritz, shopped in Chelsea, spent hours researching Wimbledon and picnicked in Hyde Park, one of my favourite places in London. When I went back to Hyde Park a week or so ago, I fell in love with it all over again, just like Zoe does in Picnics in Hyde Park over a long, hot summer. So I thought I’d show you why in pictures….
‘Whoever said romance was dead has clearly never read a Nikki Moore book’ – Rachel’s Random Reads
The last story in the fun & flirty #LoveLondon series from exciting new chick lit author Nikki Moore! The perfect novel for reading in the sunshine … and falling in love with London.
Hot summer romance…or cold revenge?
Super nanny, Zoe Harper is mad! It was bad enough discovering her ex-fiancé Greg cheating on her just weeks before their wedding. But now she’s returned home to London to find her younger sister Melody has been left jobless, homeless, broke and dumped.
Zoe is determined to get revenge on the infamous Reilly brothers for her sister’s heartbreak. So when an unexpected opportunity gives Zoe a way in to uncaring—and dizzyingly gorgeous!—successful music producer Matt Reilly’s world, she jumps at the chance to make him pay.
But living with Matt as nanny to his two adorable, but complicated children, Zoe soon begins to suspect that not everything is as it seems… Matt insists on pushing everyone away including his children, but why? And if his delicious summer kisses are anything to go by, he can’t be that bad surely?
Can Zoe convince Matt to open up a little and help fix this family before she leaves…or worse, before Matt learns who she really is?
