A Busy Autumn!
Melinda Hammond writes: October sees the UK publication of the paperback version of my latest Sarah Mallory novel – The Wicked Baron. It was lovely to receive my copy of this novel, it's such a sunny story with much of the action taking place during the summer at a beautiful Italianate villa in Buckinghamshire. Just the thing for these chilly autumn evenings!
Life has been extremely busy for me during the summer: my first e-book, Moonshadows was published in paperback in July, and since then I have signed a contract with Harlequin Mills & Boon for another three books – that will take me well into next year! And of course besides writing the books there is the fun of puffing them off! As Sarah Mallory I gave a talk at Crompton and Shaw Library a couple of weeks ago, which was great fun: it is so lovely to be able to talk about something one really enjoys.
I am also taking part in the Calderdale Writers Roadshow. I will be at Halifax Central Library on Saturday 10th October where I will be reading from The Wicked Baron in the morning, and conducting a writers' workshop in the afternoon, on character creation.
I had hoped that by the autumn life would have become a little quieter,but I seem to be busier than ever!'
THE WICKED BARON – Sarah Mallory
(Mills & Boon Historical)
When he returns from his lavishly opulent lifestyle in Paris, Luke Ainslowe's reputation as an expert seducer of women precedes him. The ladies of the ton are torn between scandalised outrage and the desire to become mistress to the most dashing rake London has ever known…
Innocent Carlotta Durini refuses to become the Baron's next conquest. For she lost her heart to Luke once before, and now believes herself impervious to his lethal brand of seduction. But what if the Wicked Baron refuses to take no for an answer?
