Tempting the Knight Kindle Release Day

Tempting the Knight, my contribution to the fabulous Fairy Tales of New York series from Tule Publishing – also featuring stories by Kelly Hunter, Lucy King and Amy Andrews – is out today on Kindle only (it’ll be coming to all ebook platforms in October)…

I have a new book page with excerpts, crits, buy links, etc.

And we have a Facebook page for info on all the books in the quartet.

But just to whet your appetite here’s the blurb:

Once upon a time, poor little rich girl Zelda Madison wanted someone to love her, until she discovered being a badass was much more fun.

Ten years after getting kicked out of covent school and torn away from her three best friends, Zelda has worked hard to clean up her act, but after a midnight swim on Manhattan Beach she’s suddenly in urgent need of a knight in shining armour…

Hard-working legal aid attorney Tyrone Sullivan is supremely pissed about having to rescue a runaway supermodel from a Brooklyn police station at two am. But when he reluctantly agrees to bust Zel out of her ivory tower and let her hide out on his house barge for the Labor Day weekend, she shows him the wild side he didn’t know he had. While Zel discovers there’s nothing hotter than tarnishing a good guy’s armour… Until he starts to steal her bad girl’s heart…

RITA® Nomination for 10 Rules to Sex Up a Blind Date!

So the Romance Writers of America® announced the nominations for this year’s RITA® Awards on Thursday… And me, being a complete plonker, was not aware of this (because I’d got my dates confused) until I picked up the phone and the fabulous Helen Kay Dimon introduced herself and told me she had some very good news for me.

Her news: My second Red Hot Read for Cosmopolitan magazine, 10 Rules to Sex Up a Blind Date, had been nominated for an award in the Best Romance Novella category. Cue much babbling, lots of teary thank yous and then a mad rush to get a plane ticket to NYC in July and register for the conference.

Just wanted to share my AMAZING news. I’m so excited about this. Obviously it would be terrific if I won, but frankly just getting nominated is such an honour I’m already over the moon and far away. I loved this story about sex, lies and Twitter etiquette, so it’s absolutely amazing to have it honoured in this way.

In other news, I have signed off on my first longer book, a woman’s fiction novel which will be out next February in the UK and currently has a working title of So Now You’re Back. I’m super proud of this book, which is quite a departure from my series work, it’s certainly been quite a learning curve writing a book with this much complexity. But I love it now, and I hope you do too…

Meanwhile, back to my current writing project – while doing a little snoopy dancing!
