I’m very happy to tell you all that Saving Mr Scrooge is now available on Amazon at the special pre-order price of just 99p. It’s due to be published on 14th November, when the price will increase to £2.99, so you know what to do! 🙂 The paperback will be available in a few weeks and I’ll let you know when I have a firm date for its publication.
Saving Mr Scrooge is the second in my Moorland Heroes series. Resisting Mr Rochester was the first, and there will be at least one more in the future. Each book in this series takes, as its starting point, a well-known fictional hero, and builds a story around him, with shades of the original tale. These, however, are contemporary romance novels with plenty of humour, and they’re a lot of fun to write, if a little daunting!
Here’s the blurb:
It’s the time of peace on earth and goodwill to all men, but at Carroll’s Confectionary, the meaning of Christmas seems to have been forgotten. New boss, Kit Carroll, is hardly winning friends with his high-handed attitude, his foolhardy approach to production, and his tight-fisted treatment of the factory’s employees.
Marley Jacobs, his self-styled PA, is determined to make him see the error of his ways, and return the festive spirit to Carroll’s Confectionary.
Unfortunately, the little matter of their previous relationship, along with Kit’s callous treatment of her when they were teenage sweethearts, keeps getting in the way of her good intentions.
With encouragement from co-worker Don, romantic sister Olivia, and — astonishingly — the usually sceptical Great Uncle Charles, Marley decides to save this modern-day Mr Scrooge from himself, despite having no well-meaning ghosts to help her.
But revisiting the past doesn’t just stir things up for Kit. As Marley struggles to deal with bittersweet memories, present-day events take a surprising turn. Can the future be changed, after all?
And is it only Kit who needs saving?
