Lovely review

Have had a great review for Say It with Diamonds. The lovely RLA, who is nearing the end of an awesome 365-books-in-365-days challenge, gives it 4 out of 5 stars and says...

"Bella is a fabulous heroine; quirky, fun, and interesting. She is the perfect balm to Will's brooding and damaged personality. The sexual tension is so thick you could almost cut it, and *that* scene in the back on the limo is scorching! The story itself is deep, emotional and interesting, and very well written.

Full of sass as well as emotion, all in Lucy King's very unique and utterly compelling style. I loved it!"

Thank you, RLA! To read the full review, click here.

Book 5 has sold! This one is the story of Jack, Luke's best friend and the laid back charmer in Bought: Damsel in Distress, and Imogen, a socialite on a mission. It even features the hideous painting of the scorpion that Jack ends up winning at the charity auction in Bought.

No title yet, but apparently it'll be out as an M&B Modern in September 2012. What a fabby early Christmas present!

Baby it's cold outside

I'm now in the UK. It's brutally cold and stormy, but that's absolutely fine - all the more reason to sit snuggled up drinking tea in front of the fire. The weather and being bundled up in wool does, however, make it tricky to conjure up the mood for the sultry Spanish summer in which my wip is set, but I shall persevere. Perhaps with something considerably stronger than tea...

December already?

How did it get to be December so quickly? And where did all those virtuous plans to have my Christmas shopping done and dusted weeks ago go? The same place as November, I suppose.

One fab thing about December (as if there aren't enough already) is that Say It with Diamonds is now available here on the Mills & Boon website. Here's the blurb...

All that sparkles...

At thirty-five, Bella might be an expert on diamonds-but she's still missing a big fat one on the third finger of her left hand. However, at least she has her successful jewellery business-with very interesting new client William Cameron, AKA the Duke of Hawksley, no less!

She's expecting portly and chinless-but actually Will's tall, dark and so distractingly good-looking it's hard to concentrate on his jewels! More of a surprise: this weird chemistry between them is actually mutual. Urgent... And it catches them completely unawares in a black London taxi...

All that glitters is not gold. All that sparkles isn't diamond. All men who turn you on aren't the real thing. But being cynical gets boring...maybe it's time for Bella to throw caution to the winds...?

Hmm... Diamonds in my Christmas stocking? Now wouldn't that be lovely?!
