Right now I am working on a new book for Harlequin Mills & Boon, so far untitled, to link to The Earl’s Practical Marriage(due April 2018). I can’t give too much away yet – but it is partly set in London and partly in the wine-growing area of the Douro Valley of Portugal where the heroine is a port wine producer. This is the inspiration for the heroine’s home – a real quinta, or wine-growing estate.
Then it will be time to work on my Christmas novella for 2018 – before Christmas this year arrives. However strange that seems, at least I will be fully in the Christmas mood.
Also in the pipeline is the revised and extensively reworked version of my Francesca Shaw novel, The Unconventional Miss Dane. This should appear in February 2018, retitled Miss Dane and the Duke to reflect the fact that it does have a duke as the hero! Here’s the lovely new cover.
After that I am planning on the sequel to An Earl Out of Time. There’s no room in my head for the plot yet – although the characters keep dropping by for a chat and I know there will be a blackmailer in thee somewhere.
The remaining two Francesca Shaw novels –The Youngest Dowager and The Rebellious Brideshould also be out in 2018 – I hope!
