I'LL GET BY:
Meggie Elliot is a young woman of above average intelligence, and on the brink of adulthood. Living with her aunt and uncle in London at the outbreak of WW2 she’s intent on going to university, then pursuing a career in law. She is encouraged in this by her solicitor – a man she admires a little too much. Too old for her, he lets her know it.
 
Meggie follows her dream as best she can. In a burst of patriotism she joins the WRNS to do her bit for the war. Sent to work in a decoding unit she meets the dangerously exciting young aristocrat, Nicholas Cowan, who sweeps her off her feet.
 
 

SECRETS & LIES:
1933. Esmé Carr leaves her closely-knit family behind and travels to Australia with her best friend, in search of adventure. There, the young women learn the value of friendship, and compromise as they support each other through the good and bad times, to eventually find love. Left behind in England is Esmé’s adolescent niece. Meggie Elliot has an imaginative and independent frame of mind, but there is mystery surrounding her birth – one she intends to unravel. And this, despite her mother’s warnings to let the past alone in an effort to protect her only daughter.

When the truth surfaces it’s not what Meggie wanted to hear, and it takes Esmé to reconcile the rift between mother and daughter.
 

TALL POPPIES:
One woman - two loves. 1918
If it's not enough that a girl from a good background is forced to work as a maid, Livia Carr is then violated by the master of the house and becomes pregnant.

Her only course is to marry the son of the house. Richard Sangster is an invalid, a world war one hero. He is not expected to live, and he offers Livia and the child legitimacy, as well has his name and estate. Livia grows to love Richard, and even though it's expected, his death comes as a great blow to her.
 
 
 
Tea Cooper is celebrating the release
of her two historical stories,
A WINNING STREAK
available from Breathless Press
&
MATILDA'S FREEDOM
Available from Harlequin Escape
both available now!




 
 
MATILDA'S FREEDOM:
An unconventional woman clashes with colonial society in this spicy and sweet Australian-set historical romance.
His carefree bachelor days over, Christopher Matcham returns to Sydney to take responsibility for his mother, two stepsisters, and the family property. Fortune smiles on him when he is introduced to Matilda Sweet, a woman in need of work. Though unusual, Christopher senses that her fresh ideals and positive outlook can only benefit his sisters, so he hires her as a companion.
By the time they arrive at Christopher’s family home, the two are fast friends. But Matilda’s unorthodox ways and her convict heritage make her a second class citizen to the family. Christopher has responsibilities, and they include an advantageous match. A breeches-wearing, fish-pond-swimming, plain-talking convict’s daughter will never do. After all, romance is a luxury the upper classes cannot afford…

 
 
A WINNING STREAK
Abandoned at birth, Atalantê, protégé of the Goddess Artemis is forced into an untenable position by her estranged father, the King of Arcadia - renege on her vow of virginity or condemn her suitors to a sacrificial death. The aristocratic courtier Melanion, cannot believe anyone would be foolish enough to put their life on the line for the dirty little predator whose reputation for speed and cruelty is legendary. That is until he falls under the spell of her lapis lazuli eyes. Consumed by desire and jealousy he is determined to win Atalantê’s hand or die trying. He calls upon Aphrodite to assist him, little realizing that her noisome brat, Eros has the pair of them in his sights and is determined to inject a little spice into their lives. Spice that will devastate the path of true love and incur the wrath of the virgin Goddess.

 
Christina Phillips is celebrating the release
of her Regency vampire romance,
BLOODLUST DENIED
Available now from Ellora's Cave!
 
 
 
 
 
Tired of the thin-blooded aristocrats in 1815 London, Alexius yearns for better sport. He is drawn to a dark-haired seductress who shows no fear and refuses to obey his commands. Entranced by such novelty, he denies his bloodlust and decides to keep her to warm his bed.

Immortal vampire hunter Morana has never mistaken her prey before, but the dark stranger mesmerizes her, enticing her to forget everything but the dangerous pleasure she finds in his arms.

Neither one can deny the pull of the other, but there is something beyond the lust—a recognition neither can put a name to. The past and present collide and unless they discover the truth behind the lies, Death will triumph once more.
 
 
 
Sasha Cottman is celebrating the release
of her Regency romance,
LETTER FROM A RAKE
Available July 10 from Destiny Romance!



 
 
 
The unconventional Miss Millie Ashton, recently arrived from India, finds England a cold and dismal place. The fashionable ladies of London society look down their noses at her and it isn't long before Millie is planning her return to the country she considers home.

When Millie befriends the high-spirited Lucy Radley, she also meets Lucy's handsome brother, 'Alex the Great' and things take a turn for the better. Alex, the Marquess of Brooke, is considered the most eligible bachelor in London, yet he appears fascinated by the independent Millie.
 
 

Annie Seaton is celebrating the release
of her latest contempory romance,
ITALIAN AFFIAR
Available now from Entangled Publishing!

 
 
 
 
 
Free-spirited sex therapist Brianna Ballantine has four days to find a fiancé so she can inherit her birth mother’s Italian villa. Commitment is not on the agenda. Writing her sex therapy book and signing legal papers are. And once all is said and done, she’ll return home to Scotland.

For finance guru Tomas Richards, relationships have been a bad investment—give him stocks and shares any day. When Tomas offers a marriage of convenience to help Brianna secure her inheritance, the sizzle between the sheets promises an affair to remember, despite family complications at every turn.

But Tom must convince Brianna to stay, and make this Italian affair a lifelong commitment.
