New cover and blurb!

We've had a postal strike in the UK and I've been eagerly waiting for my hardbacks of my February 2008 release, English Lord, Ordinary Lady. Finally, they arrived today! Along with two other packages of various foreign translations. I got completely overexcited.

So, if you want to pop on over to my website, you can read an excerpt from Josie and Will's story. It's a complete romp and I had a blast writing it.

Here's the blurb:

Wedding at Elmhurst Hall

Will Radcliffe is the perfect English lord. He's handsome and honourable, but a stickler for convention. And he's just inherited Elmhurst Hall...

Josie has never followed the rules. Rebelling against her stuffy, controlled upbringing, she's like a breath of fresh air through the corridors of the grand tately home...

But her new boss, Will, thinks she's trouble!Then one moonlit night Will and Josie share a kiss which, for a moment, makes them feel not so very different after all...

Fiona - seriously gorgeous cover. I'm convinced our fave model is also in my cover for TSH. Now I'm going back to your post to analyse your hero. LOL

I always was a late bloomer. This newbie's out in March.

I love the title of this book too Fi. It's lovely and very evocative.

Beautiful cover, Fiona :) I love the colours -- very cottage garden-y.
