I am a wife, mother of two boys, degree student, avid reader and writer of words. I sometimes sleep, always have eye bags and dream of retiring to a big white house in Cornwall, with 2 shaggy dogs, drinking wine on my seafront balcony whilst creating works of romantic fiction. All done with immaculate make up and floaty dresses.

In the meantime I nearly always remember to brush my hair, seldom have time to look in a mirror and write many, many to-do lists.

Romcom meets raunch in this entertaining and quite filthy in places book. A great plot with a fresh angle. Nice to see a woman character being up front about sex and also what they want from life. An enjoyable book.

This Valentine's weekend why not curl up and transport yourself to Freshwater Bay in Wales with The Strictly Business Proposal by Nell Grey. It's free on Amazon 13th-18th February.

Happy Reading!


Is Beth Barnes a beautiful con artist or the genuine friend of Evan Morgan, an elderly Welsh chef?
When Evan dies, he hands talented London chef Beth her big break. She has the chance to realise her dream and run her very own restaurant in a village on the wild Welsh Celtic coast. But there are strings attached. Can she comply and gain her inheritance, her dream?
Accused of being a gold digger by the family, Beth’s welcome to Wales is not quite as warm as she’d hoped for. Burned from a recent divorce, the last thing on architect Gareth Morgan’s mind is another wedding. If he wants to realise his development dreams, he must marry.It’s a strictly business proposal. But can Beth and Gareth really stick to the terms?

Helen Mccabe Thanks, Rachel, for being my friend and for recommending various books. I hope you will try one or two of mine that are in print! Perhaps the Piper Trilogy including Piper (pub by Telos) and The Piercing, which is the 2nd book of the Trilogy or if you don't like horror/thrillers then The Price of Beautyor Chance Encounters (pub by Endeavour Press. All can be downloaded from the usual sources.
All the best,
Helen


Rachel no problem! Wish I had more hours in the day to read...
