So, here it is. The cover of my new book, Resisting Mr Rochester. It was designed by the fabulous Berni Stevens, and I absolutely love it. The book will be up for pre-order very soon, and I’ll let you know as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime, here’s the blurb:
Cara Truelove has always been a romantic, burying her head in books and dreaming of being swept off her feet by her very own Brontë hero. When she was a gullible teenager, she believed boyfriend Seth to be a modern-day brooding Heathcliff. Fourteen years later, when Seth has proved to be more like Homer Simpson, Cara vows never to fall in love again, and turns her back on romance for good.
Leaving Seth behind, Cara secures a job as nanny at Moreland Hall on the Yorkshire Moors, but is shocked to discover her new employer is none other than the tall, dark, and disturbingly handsome Mr Rochester.
Her resolve to be more level-headed is soon tested when strange things begin to happen at Moreland Hall. Why is Mr Rochester’s mother hidden away upstairs? What are the strange noises she hears from the attic? Why is the housekeeper so reluctant to leave her on her own? And where is Mr Rochester’s mysterious wife?
As events unfold, Cara knows she must keep a cool head, curb her imagination – and resist Mr Rochester at all costs. After all, one Brontë hero in a lifetime is more than enough for any woman. Two would be downright greedy.
Like my previous books, this is a romcom, set in Yorkshire – this time on the beautiful Yorkshire Moors. I had a lot of fun writing it, and I really hope that you have fun reading it. It will be published on June 20th, so not long now!
