The Gilded Fan on Kindle!

Just wanted to let you know that The Gilded Fan is now available on Kindle, a little earlier than expected but in time for Christmas!

Here is the blurb:-

How do you start a new life, leaving behind all you love?

It’s 1641, and when Midori Kumashiro, the orphaned daughter of a warlord, is told she has to leave Japan or die, she has no choice but to flee to England. Midori is trained in the arts of war, but is that enough to help her survive a journey, with a lecherous crew and an attractive captain she doesn’t trust?

Having come to Nagasaki to trade, the last thing Captain Nico Noordholt wants is a female passenger, especially a beautiful one. How can he protect her from his crew when he can’t keep his own eyes off her?

During their journey, Nico and Midori form a tentative bond, but they both have secrets that can change everything. When they arrive in England, a civil war is brewing, and only by standing together can they hope to survive…

New Releases

I can’t believe summer is almost over and we’re into September already!  I’ve had lots of guests, so not much time for writerly things, but they’re all gone now and normality is about to return.  Some news from me:-

Today has been a busy day!  First of all, my Regency novella Marry in Haste was published on Kindle with a lovely new cover in my favourite colour purple.  Here is the blurb:-

‘I need to marry, and I need to marry at once!’

When James, Viscount Demarr confides in an acquaintance at a ball one evening, he has no idea that the potential solution to his problems stands so close at hand …

Amelia Ravenscroft is the granddaughter of an earl and is desperate to escape her aunt’s home where she has endured a life of drudgery, whilst fighting off the increasingly bold advances of her lecherous cousin.  She boldly proposes a marriage of convenience.

And Amelia soon proves herself a perfect fit for the role of Lady Demarr­­­. But James has doubts and his blossoming feelings are blighted by suspicions regarding Amelia’s past.

Will they find, all too painfully, that to marry in haste is to repent at leisure?

You cand find it on Amazon here.

Today is also publication day for Never Too Late, another Regency Large Print novella.  Here is the blurb:-

Recently widowed Maude, Lady Hexham, is appalled to find her late husband’s entire estate is to go to his cousin Luke with no provision for either herself or her six-year old daughter Anna.  Luke is also the man she almost eloped with eight years before – the man she still loves.

Maude doesn’t want Luke’s charity, but agrees to stay as his paid housekeeper, inviting her friend Eliza to act as her chaperone.  Following several strange ‘accidents’, Anna is kidnapped and Maude turns to Luke for help – with surprising results.
