We bought a relatively modern house in the count ...more

I’ve not done much this month except prepare for my annual trip to the States and write. Lord, I’ve written a lot, but for once the words have flowed. I’ve just completed the next “Emperors of London” book, and I’m about to start Julius’s book. We had a few problems with the title, though, and I’m waiting to hear on that. Apparently “Born to the Purple” doesn’t scream historical, so we’ll see w... Read more of this blog post »

Shadows of the Past is an interesting book, not a romance, as I first thought, but a story of two couples, one doomed and one possibly not, linked by paranormal elements, a kind of mix of Golden Dawn style Wicca and sympathetic magic.

"This was a nice read but didn't pull me in the way I'd hoped. The characters didn't feel developed in the relationship enough for me."

"This could have been a rock band romance but it's not, its a romance that happens to have rock stars. The focus of the story through the whole book is on the amazing love that happens between V and Matt.

“Never judge yourself by the narrow
standards of others. What we do together here is our
business, nobody else's. Never, never doubt what we have

Lynne Connolly, Venice

“Connie threw back her head, opened her mouth and cried to the heavens, as every sensation built and exploded inside her, fireworks and waterfalls, starburst and throbbing heat.”

“Impossible. But you know I'm there in spirit. In the middle of a ball, at the theater or even at court I'm here, inside you. Where I belong.”
