TO A BLISSFUL CHRISTMAS REUNION
Lucy Cairns and Gabriel Bliss were inseparable once. But when Gabe returns after years away and rents land from Lucy’s millionaire father for a tree nursery, their relationship is far from blissful.
Especially in the run-up to Christmas.
Gabe remains professional and distant. His time away has changed him, though he won’t talk about it. He refuses to get close to Lucy, insisting there’s too much of a gulf betweeen the millionaire’s daughter and a struggling, dirty-fingered son of the soil like him.
But then he chances on a 19th century image of Lucy’s manor house with the master and mistress standing proudly outside the main door.
A married couple who look exactly like Gabe and Lucy…

BEACH HUT SURPRISE Anthology
Beach Hut Surprise was reissued earlier this year in a brighter, summery cover, though it’s just the thing to lift your spirits when the nights are drawing in.
It’s a new genre for me and I had to go up a very steep learning curve, vampire-wise. But my vampire story was huge fun to write. In fact, I think I’ve fallen in love with Theo. And he knows it. He’s angling to appear again, and he’s already got me writing his next book. Will William appear in it, too? Can’t answer that until the book is finished. Watch this space…
Theo is just your ordinary, run-of-the-mill vampire, taking a seaside holiday at Little Piddling.
It’s peaceful and relaxing in his borrowed beach hut until, one night, a scruffy little boy turns up.
And then Theo is forced to confront a woman he’s tried to forget…

MORE ABOUT JOANNA MAITLAND
I have been reading — and writing! — stories for as long as I can remember and I love to share favourite books. I may write (mostly) romantic novels, but I read all sorts of fiction besides romance — lots of crime, thrillers, fantasy and science fiction, timeslip, historicals. I’m hoping that readers at Libertà will point me to new genres and authors I’ve been missing.
I also offer cover design as well as editing services. More details here.
Joanna’s Free Short Story!
To celebrate Burns Night 2016 — I am a Scot, after all — I posted a tongue-in-cheek take-off of Tam O’Shanter with my blog. The story is still available here on the website, as a free read. You can even print it, if you like!
