Unfortunately today’s guest blogger couldn’t make it 😦 But that’s okay because I’ll use this space to announce some VERY exciting news for me. Many of you have heard it on Twitter or Facebook, but here’s the official announcement.
But first, I’d like to draw the winner of Heidi Rice’s
The First Night of Christmas book – congrats to aretha_zhen!
Congrats Aretha, please contact Heidi through her website (http://heidi-rice.com/contact-heidi/
) with your address and she will send you the book!
I’m hugely excited to announce that I have sold my single title contemporary romance to Harlequin Australia!
JILTED will be a June 2012 release down under and I couldn’t be happier. Many of you will recall this as The Book That Won’t End. I LOVED these characters and their stories and really wanted to do well by them. I’m so happy that someone else saw something special in Flynn and Ellie and that I’ll get to share them soon.
Of course, I have no cover, no official blurb or anything like that just yet, but I thought I’d share the blurb I wrote for a pitch just so you have an idea what JILTED is about:
When soapie actress Ellie Hughes returns to the small rural community of Hope’s Junction, she risks the unbottling of ten years of secrets. But her godmother needs her, and Ellie isn’t one to let those she loves down. Not with the guilt of what she did to Flynn Quartermaine still burning her heart.
One look at Ellie and the hurt and love farmer Flynn has tried so hard to hide comes roaring back. But he’s a man now, and big enough to forgive her betrayal, if not forget. No matter how loyal the locals think they’re being in bullying Ellie, he can fight his own battles. Except protecting Ellie resurrects emotions he’d thought well drowned, and as she needs him more and more, he can’t resist another taste of what they once shared.
As their love rekindles, so does the need for truth. But with emotions made fragile by the past, revealing the tragedies and heartbreak of ten years ago could cost Ellie the one man she’s always loved. While Flynn must overcome his fear of once more being JILTED.
I hope that piqued your interest. And you know what the best thing is about all of this? I get to buy another Pandora charm for my book bracelet 🙂
