This month sees the publication of my 30th book for Mills & Boon
Am I excited about thirty? You bet I am.
Thirty Historical romances – that’s a full shelf!
Given the current state of the world, it is wonderful to have something to celebrate so I want to share with you my delight at reaching this milestone.
Thirty! Who would have thought it? So go on, raise a glass with me!
How those thirty began
Back in 2008, I attended the Romantic Novelists’ Association Conference and I was introduced to Linda Fildew, the then Senior Editor for M&B’s Historicals. She asked to read one of my Regencies (published by Robert Hale, no longer in business, sadly). She then emailed me and suggested I should write something for Mills & Boon. I already had ideas buzzing around in my head, so I was on it!
Hang on – 2008 wasn’t that long ago!
That’s better! Now, where was I…?
The rest, as they say, is history
That first book was More than a Governess, which had the most delicious cover for the American version (published by Harlequin). It was published in the UK as part of a 2-in-1 for Mother’s Day 2009 and I was very proud to show it off, as this photo from the time illustrates!
Since then I have concentrated on writing Late Georgian or Regency romances for Mills & Boon. They range from adventurous stand-alone stories set in rural England to the glittering social world of London or Bath and series such as the Scandalous Arrandales.
My M&B Historical romances even won the RNA’s prestigious Rona Rose Award two years in a row, which was such an honour! You can read more about that here
My latest book
My latest book is The Mysterious Miss Fairchild (did I mention it is my number thirty?) which is set in Regency Bath.
It features Natalya Fairchild, a beautiful young lady whose past is a mystery, even to her. She meets Tristan Quintrell, who is determined to help her discover her ancestry, even though the more they uncover, the more it appears she is totally ineligible as a bride.
I had great fun writing Miss Fairchild, making the poor girl think she was too highly educated to be “just” a society wife and that it was much more likely she was being trained to be a man’s mistress! Of course, everything comes right in the end (this is, after all, romance).
So there you have it. Champagne all round, I think?
However it doesn’t stop there. I have just finished writing Book 31, and am now planning number 32, so watch this space.
