New Release: Beautiful Stranger!

Out Now!

I’m so pleased to announce that my latest book, Beautiful Stranger, is now available to buy on Amazon! This novella first started out as two short stories, Ladies’ Day and British Champions which have been combined along with a brand new ending into one cohesive book.

For this release, I’m trying something a little new: Kindle Unlimited. This means that Kindle Unlimited customers can read Beautiful Stranger for free (by borrowing it). If you’re not a Kindle Unlimited customer, you can still purchase the book as normal. The introductory price (which will last for about a week) is 99c/99p, so save money while you can!

Buy / Borrow on Amazon

Twenty-four year old Claudia has always been the sensible one. From her boring call centre job right down to her practical wardrobe, flash and extravagant are not part of her normal vocabulary. She may live in Ascot, the home of British horse racing, but the presence of all the moneyed revellers blocking her route home from work are more of a nuisance than a thrill. Until one of them catches her eye…

Peter’s life couldn’t be more different. All his life he’s worked hard to make it in the banking industry, to give his wife all she’s ever wanted. After a day of sipping champagne and watching the races, an indiscretion of hers with Peter’s colleague changes this picture-perfect vision of middle class life forever. He decides to cut and run, only, he hasn’t a clue where he’s going.

A chance meeting by the side of the road brings them together, making them forget their opposing backgrounds. Is passion alone enough to overcome their differences?

Chance Encounters is a series of stand-alone novellas set in jolly old England, following a set of loosely connected people as they find love in unexpected places. Can love conquer all, from class differences to age gaps? Read on and find out.

Titles in this series include:
One Night Stand
Beautiful Stranger
Only a Taste (coming soon)

One Night Stand – coming soon!

Couple holding hands. Man and woman holding hands, cose up.Have you read my short story Just for One Night and wondered what happens next? This question is about to be answered in One Night Stand.

I’m very excited to announce that my novella (about 120 pages on Kindle) One Night Stand is going to hit the virtual shelves on the 28th of February 2015. To celebrate its release, I’m holding a giveaway for a paperback copy over on Goodreads. Enter quickly, it’s only open until the 27th! (please scroll down for the giveaway widget)

Lucy is used to having a handle on things herself: her business, which she’s fighting to turn around after a rough patch, and her lovelife, which consists of carefully conducted casual encounters during which only she calls the shots.

A one night stand with George, the irresistible tall, husky, rough biker whose deceptive exterior hides a gentler side, changes everything. Her usual approach doesn’t work for her anymore: she doesn’t want to say goodbye. Is it time she let someone else into her life for longer than just one night?

Meanwhile, the crucial project she’s just landed is about to fall to pieces, threatening her reputation as well as her finances. Suddenly Lucy has to learn what it’s like to not be in control of anything at all.

The Roadrage Podcast – 009 – Saying Goodbye & Routines

podcast-smallSo I recorded this episode on Wednesday (very sorry I didn’t get around to uploading it sooner!) And I’m also extremely sorry for not putting out a new podcast episode for so long. Things have been crazy, as you might imagine, because this episode was recorded on what was my last drive to work (though not technically my last day at work because today, on Friday, I took the train to allow for a night out to celebrate and say goodbye… In this episode I give an update on everything that’s happened over the past month relating to The Big Move, and also talk a bit about routines and how important they are for me (as well as many other writers, I’m sure).

Friday Filth: The Rebound List

fullcover2-site

In preparation of Monday’s official launch, here’s a little snippet of something that happens early on in The Rebound List… 

Looking at him, despite the dimmed light of the theatre, still I feel a jolt run through me when our eyes meet. He runs his fingers through my hair again. Hoping this is going where I want it to, I look at his lips, so tempting. I want to taste him, right here and immediately.

His hand cups my cheek but he continues to just look as if asking for permission. Over-eager and impatient, of course I jump the gun and reach for him, planting a soft kiss on his lips. I feel his breath against me, his arms drawing me towards him closer.

He kisses me back. It’s a bit awkward at first but then our lips, tongues, our beings seem to be in tune. Every inch of me appears to sing with excitement. My eyes flick open and find his staring into me, smiling as I am.

I wrap my arm around his neck, my hand reaching for his hair now. It’s hard not to get carried away, after all, a cinema does not afford all that much privacy. But I suppose there’s no harm in indulging my impulses just a little.

Running my fingertips over his shirt, I enjoy the outlines of what I know to be underneath. Mystery is overrated. I have spent enough time looking at, no, studying his naked photographs to know what awaits me and frankly, that’s reassuring as well as arousing.

He doesn’t have this advantage though, until today he had only seen the bottom half of my face and my eyes and that too in black & white instead of colour. I kiss him with more energy, more passion and feel a moan travel over my lips. Was it mine or his? Does it even matter?

Suddenly aware of angry stares burning into us, I pause, biting my bottom lip and try to signal to make him aware of the grumpy man ahead of us. He continues to hold me, grinning back at me until I decide to turn and use him as a backrest; his arm draped across my front in a similar position as you’d keep a seatbelt in a car.

He seems to be enjoying this changed dynamic as much as I am, because he starts to nuzzle my neck, where all the little hairs at the back stand right up. His hand, fingertips soft and careful, running up and down on the fabric of my dress, just over where my ribs end and the soft part of my waist starts. It’s beautiful, the slow progress we’re making towards the inevitable.

The movie, although kind of gory and scary, passes by quickly and largely unnoticed. His face remains comfortably resting in the crook of my neck and I’m hanging onto his arm, my hand travelled up his sleeve just enough to hold him. There should be no mistaking that I want him here, this close and even closer to me.

His confidence grows and he wraps his other arm around me too, caressing my arm which is still pretty cold in the unnaturally chilled cinema air. By the time the credits start, I can’t wait to get out, away from grumpy man who interrupted our first, tentative kisses.

“I think I want to go…” I say.

He sits up, letting go as I turn towards him.

“Thought it was going well…” he says, his gaze lingers on my lips just a bit.

“Oh yeah, I meant both of us, somewhere more private… if you want to.” I smile at him. “You didn’t think that I want to leave? No, not at all.”

Want more? You could read part one of The Rebound List already for free, or wait until Monday the 28th of July and get the whole collection (parts 1~4) together for a special introductory price of 99c/99p! 

The Roadrage Podcast – 008 – Book Launch Do’s & Don’ts

podcast-smallI apologise for the delay putting this up, despite putting the youtube version online yesterday. And I also apologise for perhaps sounding weird, but I seem to be suffering from a bit of hayfever lately…

This episode will be more of interest to those also in the writing/publishing game because I’m talking about book launches, specifically the upcoming launch of The Rebound List. A few do’s and don’ts from someone who’s never properly launched a book before. 😉 Enjoy.
