Today is Release day for Fool for Love, a collection of three fabulous stories of Regency rakes and innocent misses, written by me, Heather Boyd and Donna Cummings.
Release day is always a day for celebrating and I’m rather excited to be doing so with a bottle of one my favourite South African wines, Meerlust, which my brother-in-law is bringing over for our BBQ this afternoon. (He’s been flying between Antarctica and Cape Town for five weeks and has just returned to Australia.)
So it’s going to be great hearing stories of his adventures before we charge our glasses and bring the conversation back to the fact that it’s release day for me! (And then, of course, I’ll let him have the floor once again.)
Here’s a bit about the anthology.
In His Valentine’s Secret, by me, Lady Athelton’s St Valentine’s Ball should have been a time for love, not vengeance, as the once carefree Lisette plots the demise of the man she once loved. Will she learn the truth in time?
In Truly, My Love, by Donna Cummings, Lord Benedict and Lady Sommerwood stage a faux romance in order to help him evade two besotted young misses at a Valentine party. But can an affair built on falsehoods possibly turn into true love?
And in A Husband for Mary, by Heather Boyd, Miss Mary Vine kissed a handsome stranger at the Fenwick Masquerade, never imagining the extraordinary attraction could be for the most disgraceful rake in London. A man she knew far too well…
I hope you enjoy the sound of them. Romance stories are a great antidote to life’s cares and troubles and I hope you get swept away. You can read an excerpt from His Valentine’s Secret, which is set in the aftermath of the French Revolution, here.
