My next release (February 20th UK) is a short story. At least, my editor calls it a short story, but at 30,000 words, it didn't feel particularly short when I was writing it. :) Just the same, I loved -- really, really loved -- writing this novella, which is now called The Billionaire's Baby Surprise.
It's being released for the UK's Mother's Day in a collection called The Secret Baby Bargain and I was hoping to run a competition so that readers in other countries had a chance to read it.
However, the book is being used in a special promotion and, at this point, I don't have any spare copies.
Sorry. I really do want to share this story with my readers.
If you live in England, please do keep an eye out for this book and give it a little pat for me. If you don't live in the UK, it is, of course, available from amazon.co.uk.
My heroine, Claire Eden becomes the gaurdian to her little nephew Harry after her sister Flora dies suddenly from post-delivery complications.
Claire gives up her life as a busy and successful events planner in Brisbane to live with little Harry on Sapphire Island in North Queensland and to bring Harry up in the relaxed, 'island life' she knows Flora wanted for him.
But a tropical cyclone, and the unexpected reappearance of Harry's father, adventurer billionaire Jack Dysart, interrupt Claire's plans...
Other stories in the book include Expecting His Child, by wonderful fellow Queenslander, medical author Meredith Webber, and Claiming the Ashbrooke Heir by historical author Mary Nichols.
