The Black Sheep's Return

As the long-lost black sheep of the aristocratic Seaborne family, Richard gave up everything to protect his wife and children—his wealth, his home, even his name. Now a widower, he has been living hidden away deep in the forest…. That is, until he is discovered by prickly runaway Lady Freya Buckle! Reformed rake Rich suddenly finds his old ways hard to ignore—especially when the virginal Freya is very willing to be seduced! Only, their fairy-tale fling has consequences, and with danger around every corner, it will take all their passion and courage to find their very own happy-ever-after.

About

It would be nice to say I grew up scribbling lots of interesting stories and always intended to be a writer when I grew up, but it would be a thumping great lie. Back then I didn’t think people like me did things like that and even when I wondered if they might after all, it took years of hard work and knock backs before I learnt how, with a lot of help from some very generous fellow writers along the way. Now here I am at last and nobody is more surprised about it than I am. I write Regency romance for Harlequin Mills and Boon and love the brilliance and diversity of that time and hope you will join me there for an hour or two of your precious time. I loved Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion and Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre as a teenager (and read them turn about with Captain Marryat’s Children of the New Forest and Baroness Orczy’s The Scarlet Pimpernel) until I wore them out. Then came Georgette Heyer’s rich and witty historical novels and the glorious romantic thrillers of Mary Stewart and I fell in love with a whole genre. It is a passion that has got me through a lot of life’s little heartaches and one or two bigger ones over the years and my favourite Jane Austen titles still work for me, the other books less so now I am more mature, at least in years, and I love reading contemporary “women’s” fiction and any historical romance I can get my hands on. In my twenties I went back to college and took honours in English literature as a fairly mature student and loved the creative writing module that let me hope I might write a book one day. Life takes a lot of twists and turns and I have helped run my family’s garden centre, taught very briefly, worked as an office administrator, helped care for my elderly parents and been a waitress between that course and realising a long cherished dream. So I hope you enjoy the results of my labours as much as I have writing them and if you would like to hear about my latest publications, do contact me and I will let you know next time the lovely people at Harlequin Mills and Boon release another of my books.
