Hello and welcome to my Blissemas post! I adore Christmas, especially the build up. I love wrapping presents, putting up the tree, lighting the fire and long walks in the frosty countryside. I live in Wales, sometimes we get lots of snow, other times it's just damp and the short days and low sun make it feel dark and atmospheric. I adore all of the seasons and this time of year is no exception, especially when it looks like this outside…
Instead of writing bright sunny romance stories, it puts me in the mood for more angst in my plot lines, and a dose of tragedy and torment. I've just finished a novel called Rule Breaker and certainly grey skies and creepy mist play a part in setting the scene for my heroines frame of mind.
Here are a few more pictures from my walk with the dogs at the weekend. I walked for miles thinking up new characters and stories. This kind of place I find very inspirational. It's a local manor house that opens its gardens and grounds to the public from time to time. On this particular day I was the only person there. I just wrapped up warm and it was wonderful.
Walking for miles is all very lovely but it doesn't get you anywhere very fast. However, catching a ride on motorbike certainly does!
I've always been a speed freak, I guess it stems from being scared of heights, I've got to get a rush from somewhere and hopping on a mean machine certainly does that for me. Which is why when I was asked to contribute to Totally Bound's Wild Angel Anthology I jumped at the chance.
A little research into bikers was also fun…
Wild Angels is out today in paperback and ebook, but if you want to just get your mits on my story, Burning Rubber, that's also available as a standalone read - early download from the publisher until 2nd January then general release from all good ebook retailers. Fabulous cover designed by Posh Gosh!
When trouble rides into town, what girl can resist the ultimate bad boy?
Handling men isn’t an issue for me. I’m not a girly girl and my best friends are the machines I spend my days fixing, tweaking and servicing. So when the Wild Angels roll onto my forecourt and need my help, I’m happy to be of assistance.
But I’ve always been a magnet for trouble and when the leader of the pack, Gid, questions my ability, I can’t help the sassy backchat. Seems it doesn’t bother him too much and before I know it, I’m climbing onto his beast and hanging on for the ride.
Bad ass guys like him don’t come without baggage, though, and it seems he wants to get rid of mine. Who am I to complain when it means revenge is hot, his body is hotter and we leave a trail of burning rubber as we head into the sunset? Biker girl, me? I guess it’s in the blood.
Reader Advisory: This book contains a scene involving mild breath play.
