February 1, 2023

It definitely feels like it’s time to get back into the swing of things, doesn’t it? Here in Australia, summer school holidays are over and children are getting back to school. Traffic has increased on the roads as people get back into the office, and even the weather has taken a turn for the absolutely freezing, so I feel like fate has made the decision that the party is over, holidays are done, and it’s time to get back to reality :)!

For those of you who didn’t catch up with my last Letter to Readers, I’m happy to announce that my next novel will be released on the 16th March, 2023, in all formats. MISS FLIBBERTIGIBBET AND THE BARBARIAN is the next instalment of the Cynster Next Generation Novels, and is Nicholas Cynster’s story - Demon and Flick’s son.

Nicholas Cynster rides up to Aisby Grange in Lincolnshire determined to purchase an elusive stallion for the Cynster Stable, only to encounter a strikingly beautiful and shockingly direct young lady who proves to be the lion guarding the gateway to the horse’s owner. But before Nicholas can negotiate access, the horse is stolen, and Nicholas finds himself joining forces with the lady, who he belatedly recognizes as being known throughout the ton for her flighty, frivolous, outrageous behavior…except she’s nothing like that.

Lady Adriana Sommerville knows Nicholas will be back and resigns herself to having to manage his interaction with her aging father. She successfully negotiates that potential quagmire only, at the very last moment, to discover the horse is missing.

Stunned, Addie insists on setting out in pursuit and is not so silly as to refuse Nicholas’s support.

But as they follow on the heels of The Barbarian, their adventures and encounters open both their eyes to the prospect of a more enduring partnership. Yet before they can follow that trail farther and before they can lay hands on the horse, through shock after shock, their pursuit uncovers a complicated plot that strips away masks and rescripts everything Addie and her siblings thought they knew about the Sommerville family.

This novel is now available for pre-order in digital and print formats, with audio to follow soon. If you’d like more information on the novel as well as links to pre-order your copy, click on the cover below.
