November 2017 - Cover Reveal

Seeing my new cover for the first time is always exciting and my next book, Valdez's Bartered Bride, to be released in November 2017 doesn't disappoint. It's just as I imagined when writing the book.

And the all important back cover blurb ..

Blackmailed into marriage... by Christmas!

Genealogist Lydia Carter-Wilson is horrified by the debts her father has run up in her name. Then magnate Raul Valdez approaches her with an outrageous proposition. If she helps him claim his inheritance, he'll pay off her debts and save her tarnished reputations. But there's a catch. If she fails, she will marry Raul on Christmas Eve!

No matter their instant and electrifying attraction, Lydia knows Raul's proposal amounts to blackmail. Yer faced with an impossible choice - risking ruin or becoming Raul's bartered bride - Lydia finds she cannot resist her desire to make a deal with the dark-hearted billionaire!

London Again!

At the beginning of last week I was heading to London again. This time to meet up with Nas Dean who does a wonderful job promoting mine and many other authors books.

One of my last blog posts for her was on travelling to Pisa in Italy, which was one of the destinations on Nas's travels.

Nas lives in Fiji and has been travelling around Europe and has been to so many destinations I haven't been able to keep up with her! I did arrange one special trip whilst she was in London and that was to the Mills and Boon offices.

Here we are with Flo Nicoll and Joanne Grant.

The next morning, I took an early morning walk around Hyde Park and had fun posting the images to Instagram as I went. You can see more of my Instagram photos at rachaelthomasromanceauthor

All too soon it was time to make the long train journey home during which I began working on my next book. I was in the fun situation of being on the train heading to Wales and on a Greek Island at the same time! I also indulged in a bit of longhand writing. I love going back to pencil and paper.

When I returned home, I completed revisions for my latest sheikh story and returned them to my editor. Now I'm back at my desk typing up all those pages I scribbled over on the train!

If you have a long journey to make, how do you pass the time?
