In case anyone fancies a romantic winter read, my Scottish-based Regency novel, Midwinter Masquerade, is now on a special offer of 99c on Amazon US and 77p on Amazon UK. I always forget to put reviews anywhere so I've included a short sample from Amazon reviews at the end!
Edinburgh 1816: young widow Lady Lenora Fitzallan receives an invitation that might change her life.
At his Scottish country estate, Edward Montgomery awaits the arrival of the woman he should have married seventeen years before, while his niece Annabelle begins to fall in love. But is it with the right man?
As they all prepare for the Masquerade Ball on the Winter Solstice, new arrivals cause uncertainty and reveal past secrets. But who will win Lenora’s love in the end?
"Romy Gemmell keeps a whole basket of balls in the air as her large cast of characters gather for a midwinter ball. As always, Romy writes with assurance and brings deft touches of period and humour to her story. The juxta-positioning of two romances keeps the reader guessing all the way to the end and is a clever device to allow both an older couple and their younger counterparts to shine."
"The characters are well delineated, subtly defined and engaging. I particularly liked Annabelle with her rather scatterbrained approach to life in general and men in particular and the underlying humour adds an extra dimension to the novel."
"Midwinter in the Scottish countryside is a perfect setting for this historial romance. I enjoyed the clever threads of stories running through this book, with the widowed Lenora's romantic turmoil a nice contrast to the more whimsical escapades of the younger Annabelle."
