We’re absolutely delighted to welcome our lovely new Editorial Assistant, Natalie Fordham, to the team! Find out more about her – and more importantly, who her favourite romantic hero is – below… Name Natalie Fordham Place and date of birth Fordham 12/26/1994 Role Editorial Assistant Tell us about yourself in 100 words or less Trying to sum yourself up is always inherently difficult, like trying to describe why you love a book.

Christmas at the Little Wedding Shop: Coffee Cupcakes by Jane Linfoot

My partner always saves my books to read when we go away on holiday. And every year it’s the same. He’ll look up from reading my paperback, narrow his eyes, and say ‘actually, there are quite a few things in here I recognise…’ As a writer I can’t help weaving items from real life into the imaginary worlds I create. Invariably it’s my favourite things that pop up in my stories. And coffee cupcakes are a perfect example. The recipe came from my granny.

Be More Shirley: ‘Live Your Dreams’ says Author Michelle Betham

Hi all! In celebration of today’s eBook release of Michelle Betham’s sizzling romantic romp Shirley Valentine Goes to Vegas, here we have a word from author Michelle on living your dreams (however crazy they might seem!) and discovering your true self… In Shirley Valentine Goes to Vegas, the ‘Shirley Valentine’ in question – Lana Saunders – is newly-divorced, about to turn forty, and currently in the process of changing her entire life. After years of, I suppose you could call it towing the line, she’s finally doing some of those things she’s always wanted to do but never had the nerve or the confidence to even attempt before – and that includes getting a rather large ‘statement tattoo’! In fact, Lana gets herself well and…
