Listen and love… my joy of audiobooks!

I don’t have many audiobooks out there yet – I’ve never been a big enough Name to be front of a publisher’s queue when the format started taking off, and never had the dosh to have them done for my self-published titles (though I’m working on that in 2018 with Joel Leslie, I hope!). There are all the other issues too, of writing titles set in Britain, but with many of the currently popular narrators being US, and not as confident doing Brit voices, especially sustaining it over the whole length of a book (am working on that, too… *g*).

But it’s been a joy to ADD so much to the story of Romancing the Ugly Duckling by having a fabulous audio of it! Joel Leslie did me proud, and it was like the fun of writing it all over again.

In addition, I’m thrilled with the latest audiobook review for my Duckling at Love Bytes Reviews.

Excerpt… “This whole story hit me in the feels. I absolutely LOVED it and everything about it. I am so glad I put aside my reticence at the trope and gave this one a try. I truly enjoyed the story and the message it conveyed. Oh and the romance was great too! This was a fantastic addition to the Dreamspinner Desires line and I will be listening to this one over and over.”

And as for Joel’s narration? “Joel Leslie’s performance of this story was excellent. Most of his accents were exactly what I expected them to be and he really did a great job bringing out personalities and emotions and the anxiety when the story turned tense. His rendition of Perry really captured his character perfectly and I think his narration took this story to the next level. I highly recommend it!”

Romancing the Wrong Twin – chaos ensues!

It’s contract signing day! I just signed a contract for my second DREAMSPUN DESIRES title at Dreamspinner Press, Romancing the Ugly Duckling.

My *first* Dreamspun Desires title, Romancing the Wrong Twin, is scheduled for release in November 2016.

I loved the idea of the new Dreamspun Desires line as soon as DSP suggested it. It takes the well-loved themes and tropes of traditional romance, and twists them gently and lovingly with a M/M flavour. For those who love Romance – with, of course, the capital R *g* – a cosmopolitan setting, bold and handsome heroes, and a good dollop of twisty plot – come on over LOL. All the titles are available separately, or you can subscribe to ALL titles, every month, at a special price, in either print or ebook.

COMING SOON!
ROMANCING THE WRONG TWIN

How tangled can a romantic web get?

When gruff explorer Dominic Hartington-George seeks sponsorship for his latest expedition, his London PA insists on a more media-friendly profile—like dating celebrity supermodel Zeb Z. When Zeb can’t make the date, he asks his identical twin, Aidan, to stand in for just one evening. Aidan, a struggling playwright, shuns the limelight to the extent people don’t even know Zeb has a sibling, but he reluctantly agrees.

When the deception has to continue beyond the first date, Aidan struggles to keep up the pretense. Dominic likes his sassy, intelligent companion, and Aidan starts falling for the forthright explorer. But how long can Aidan’s conscience cope, as confusion abounds? Will coming clean as the “other twin” destroy the trust they’ve built?
