ON AUDIOBOOK - The Litigators – easy reading for those on the go -   Firstly I have to say I’m absolutely loving audible right now! So many of my favourite authors offering their books on audiobook, and all downloadable instantly onto my app! Having someone read stories to me in my long journeys – sometimes I just can’t wait to get back in the car! And with Sat-nav, I’m rarely distracted from my route. The latest one to be finished is The Litigators by John Grisham. Loved the story and gave it five stars on amazon. Mainly for the characterisation. It’s not one of his suspense filled, tense page turners, so much as a good old personality based romp – bit more like a soap would be – bit like JK’s Casual Vacancy was, in fact, in my opinion. Well worth a download.

The Reluctant BrideBook of the Week – Finally, as promised, it’s here! This weekend only – Fri 11th - Mon 12th – you can download to your Kindle for FREE, the fab raunchy regency novella – The Reluctant Bride by new author Claire Firth

The debut of another of our Tuscany posse, this is a really well-written ‘Regency Undone’ as they call them! A bit of steaminess from the 1700’s!

Claire’s been reluctant for ages to finally let it go and upload it, but she’s finally perfected it and it’s really rather raunchy! It’s the result of many years of writing many novels, as you may be able to tell from her very fluent writing style.

Having discovered she’s got quite a talent for raunch, she’s created a fab Novella (about half the length of a normal romance novel, so it’s a speedy read!) about a lord who takes a bride – literally – and how she gradually comes round to his needs… Good story behind it too tho’. Give it a go. I gave it a fab 5 stars!! Click here to get it on Amazon.

(nb you can get the kindle app for free if you don’t have an actual kindle, or buy one from us, item  504326

Hawaiian Countdown continues – the fab reviews continue for my own first novel on Amazon – thank HA PGyou so much! Currently 149 out of 171 are an amazing 5 stars (across all the options!). And here’s one of the latest -

Amazon Review –

Downloaded this to my IPad, (not done this before!) was going to take it on holiday with me later in the month, but curiosity got the better of me!! what a great read, like most other people I couldn't put it down, needed to know what was going to happen next!!

Thought I had the plot all sorted, and knew who the bad guys were, but how wrong could I have been, won't say anything in case others are reading reviews first before they commit to buying the book!! Get cracking with the next one Debbie........”
