Raven’s got a Rollicking Regency Romance out today, and she’s happy…

Plus a bit confused. My lovely hubby has been away a lot for work lately, and it was only at 8am I realised that indeed today is Tuesday, release day and my turn to chat here.

So I’m going to hold my hand up and say that yeah, it’s a bit of self promo blow my own trumpet look this is the book type post.

Be nice to me and don’t shout. I’ve already put my hot coffee in the fridge and tried to drink out of the empty milk jug. Then put my dirty plate back in the cupboard! Yeah, I need more coffee….

Ahh now I can be a bit more coherent maybe.

So, without further ado (because I need to drink the coffee this time)

Drum roll

and because I just love this way of showing the blurb…

and a wee tease…

The door swung open and Theresa turned to him. “My lord, would you like to come in?”

He hesitated. Theresa raised one eyebrow. Not so effective as when he did it, she was sure, but her best effort. However, he grinned, kissed her cheek, drew back and nodded. “I needed that.”

He did? “Why?” She was genuinely perplexed. It was the briefest touch, over almost before it began, and in full view of any passerby.

Jamie shrugged. “Do I need a reason?”

It was her turn to nod. “I rather think you do.”

“I crave your touch,” he said.

His diffidence was hitherto unknown to her, and it appealed more than perhaps it should.

“Which,” he continued, “is not easy to admit.” He lifted his hand toward her and let it drop by his side again. “It is, at the risk of sounding big-headed, usually the other way around.”

Out of the corner of her eye Theresa saw Roberts, her major-domo, beam and look benevolent before he tactfully turned his head. However discrete Jamie tried to be, someone would always notice. They were in luck that this time it was Roberts, who was in agreement the rest of her staff in hoping more would come of this alleged liaison.

“Crave, thirst for, covet…” Jamie sighed. “Lust after. However, I’m sure one touch would not be enough. You’re in my blood.”

Craving wasn’t good enough but it was a start. Even so, she dipped her head and spoke in a whisper. “And you mine.”

Ideas, or lack thereof… #Raven Rambles (@RavenMcAllan)

Hello, folks, Raven here.

As it seems to  have been ages since I had a book out and even longer before my next one appears, I was stumped at what to chat about today.

Sometimes I have ideas coming out of my ears it seems, and other times zilch.

This is a zilch time. I’m 40k into a 75K Regency and enjoying it so much. But it’s still at the stage I’m begging my characters not to mess with my plot or my mind.

Other than that, my next book, The Lord’s Persuasion of Lady Lydia, fondly know as #TeamHarry is out on 27th of this month.

I’m now anxiously awaiting my copy edits and hoping there is not much to do.

 

Then November brings Fairground Attraction…

 

Before which I will be a quivering wreck because, yeah you’ve got it. I am waiting for copy edits for that as well.

 

It’s just as well I enjoy it all.

 

More next time when I’ll bring you an exclusive excerpt from #TeamHarry (It’s up for pre-order on Amazon, Are and Kobo if you fancy taking a chance on it.)

 

Happy reading,

 

Love Raven x

Waves Hi Raven here. Sips coffee anyone want one?

Refills pot and shares it around.

Are you sitting comfortably? Oh good well let me start. As ever I’m rambling on…

Yesterday was an all over the place sort of day for me. Hubby had toothache over the weekend so I got out the hard stare and told him to go and get to the dentist as it opened—or else.

He did but oh so reluctantly because of course rolls eyes it didn’t hurt on Monday…

Yes well, he had treatment. Quite a lot as far as I can tell. Dare I say no wine with dinner?

Then, it was cover and title reveal day… I was so excited, I spilled coffee danced around like a dervish and scared three tourists and our resident squirrels.

Then they sent me the blurb for The Lord’s Persuasion of Lady Lydia and said go forth and share it.

Then, (sorry lots of ‘then’ in this) I was lucky enough to get a couple of my eBooks into our county library services with a couple of paperbacks to follow.

Then I found out I’d still got a stash of chocolate and a piece of gluten free Daim cake.

Then I decided to write this, drink coffee and eat the Daim cake.

So just got to show you the cover and the blurb, hope you don’t mind… But well, it would be rude not to show you how much I’ve been distracted.

Blurb

Seducing the wallflower…

Over the years, Lydia Field has perfected the art of being a wallflower. It’s the only way to avoid the attention of unwanted suitors – and the perils of a convenient, loveless marriage! Instead, she dreams of the day she can leave London’s high society behind her, trading the glamorous balls and afternoon teas for a quiet life in the country.

But in an unguarded moment, she finds herself catching the eye of notorious rake ‘Handsome Harry’, Lord Birnham. Now that he’s glimpsed the wildness and fire that lurks beneath Lydia’s demure exterior, Lord Birnham will not rest until he has unleashed the full extent of her passion!

For if there’s one skill that Lord Birnham is known for, it’s the art of persuasion…

 

Oops bats eyelashes the Amazon link snuck in…

I have to say I’m so pleased with this cover. I was asked for some input and you know they’ve got in everything I asked for and more. It really encapsulates the story. In Love

Now I best get back to the revisions or it won’t be out in October.

Happy reading,

Love Raven x
