Thanks for the message Nell, I'm afraid it's not a genre I usually read but I wish you the best of luck with your books.

Nell Grey Hi Claire,
I am a new writer and this is my first venture. It's an action romance series of four books, beginning with this one. The stories are set in Wales on the Welsh Celtic coast.

The Strictly Business Proposal

The Strictly Business Proposal (Freshwater Bay Novel Series #1) by Nell Grey

You can read it free at the moment as a free Amazon download.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07ZQS79L3

I'd really love you to read and review it, if you enjoy action romance novels.

Best wishes and hope to hear from you,

Nell
