About the book

Everything depends on this one day

Would anyone hire a wedding planner who was left at the altar? The answer, Kate Hartley has found out, is no. It's been nearly a year since her fiance abandoned her at their destination wedding, and Kate's career is nearly toast. Unless she can pull off the wedding of the century for her new clients, a Hollywood power couple. So why is the groom's brother, sexy-as-hell resort owner Scott Dillon, trying to stop the wedding?

Scott wants to do the right thing the bride-to-be is keeping a secret and Scott's brother deserves the truth before he says "I do." But if Scott doesn't stop trying to stall the wedding, he'll ruin Kate's career, not to mention any chance he has of being with her.

I thought it was great how quickly the story got going and especially how the plot moved along with no slow parts. We are introduced to Kate and she has had her confidence knocked badly b…

About the book

My dearest daughter
This will be the last letter I write to you. I hope she will let you read this one. I hope she will let you ask questions and hear the story you need to hear. The story of you. And if she doesn’t I hope that one day you will get curious, wonder where you came from and come and find me.

Called to a lawyers office to be informed of an inheritance, Julia Simmonds, discovers she’s the secret love-child of the late, great artist Bruce Baldwin. With temperamental seventies supermodel Philadelphia Simmonds as a mother, Julia is used to drama, but is completely unprepared for the way her life is about to irrevocably change.

About the book

One lift. Two strangers. Anything could happen! 
Elena thought that today would be just like any other day…until the supermarket lift jams and she realises she’s stuck. And not just stuck in the lift. Stuck with her childhood crush, Daniel Moore, who unfortunately seems to be just as gorgeous as she remembered… Buy Links Amazon UK

My Review

I couldn't help but be drawn to this story after reading the blurb. It isn't every day you get stuck in a lift with your childhood crush. Is it ever a good idea to revisit the past well let's take a look at what I thought... My heart went out to Elena I could totally get where she was coming from in relation to her crush. I think most people can admit to at one point in their life being in Elena's position of unrequited love but maybe not in such a slightly stalker esque way! I loved thepart in the lift and how everything played out it was great to see Daniel and Elena's first meeting in years. I have to admit I think I ha…

My Review

As a Mills and Boon Insider I am delighted to be sharing my review of The Secret Marriage Pact. I have to admit I have a soft spot for Historical Romance so as soon as I saw this book I knew I had to read it. 
What did I think...
I love that you get to know Jane pretty well throughout this book, I would best describe her as strong willed but also a loyal person who is determined to gain as much independence as she…

My Review
The story as ever moves along so quickly that I managed to read it in one morning. I always look forward to the next book in the Vivienne Series and I have to say this is just as good as the rest of the series if not possibly my favourite so far.

It was interesting to see Vivienne's interactions with Evan and it m…

About the book
How can you tell the truth... if all you've ever known is a lie?

Three minutes. That’s all it takes for Meredith’s entire world to fall apart when she watches the videotape of her four-year-old self with Becca, the mother who abandoned her.

Meredith can’t believe what her eyes have seen. Yet what if her memory has locked away the painful reality of her childhood? Can there be any truth in the strange and dangerous story her mother forced her to tell on camera? 

The search for answers leads Meredith to Darkwater Pool, the scene of the murder of a young woman, Cara, over 30 years ago. What could possibly be the link between her mother and the victim?

To find the truth Meredith must search through a past that is not he…

I love the colours it's so inviting I could jump straight in! Now we have had the cover reveal let's check out the description for the book...

Blurb: 
Where dreams come true…?
Wendy Clayton stopped believing in fairy tales a long time ago. Instead, she has a ‘nice’ life. Nice job. Nice flat. Absolutely no men. Until her life is turned upside-down when her elderly neighbour, Eulalie, passes away and leaves her the Château of Happily Ever Afters!
But there’s a catch: she must share the sprawling French castle with Eulalie’s long-lost nephew, Julian. And no matter how gorgeous he is, or how easily she finds herself falling head over heels, Wendy needs to find a way to get rid of him…
Because surely happily ever afters don’t happen in real life?



Escape to beautiful…
