In between writing books about Royal Weddings, I’ve been popping back to my characters in Trewton Royd to see how they were getting on. I’ve finally finished Belonging and intend to release it next month.
Belonging is about Harriet (those of you who’ve read Snowed In will recognise her as the drunk woman from the corner shop vying for Vinnie’s attention). I wondered why she drank so much. The result was a whole novella about her, poor love. Some of the characters in Snowed In and Pat’s Pantry show up as cameos.
Here’s the blurb and the lovely cover for Belonging:
She’s grieving her lost love. He’s searching for his lost niece. Can attraction overcome family loyalty in this enemies to lovers romance?
Hiding away in a tiny Yorkshire village, Harriet is grieving for her lost love. His family won’t talk to her and she can’t move on from from his death. All this changes when his daughter, Niamh, turns up on her doorstep, needing a sympathetic ear.
Tim thinks Harriet broke up his sister’s marriage all those years ago. His sister’s enemies are his enemies. When his niece runs away to Harriet’s house, he knows he has to get her back before his sister finds out. But that means talking with Harriet.
As they work together to console Niamh and get her home safely, Tim and Harriet become increasingly attracted to each other.
But with attraction comes guilt.
Can they overcome their respective loyalties and give in to love?
Belonging is due for release on the 15th of September.
