Box Set #1 . . .

Bad Friends

Lily is in denial about her relationship with Ian, a university lecturer who was sexy three years ago but has become progressively more boring. Her friends try to tell her what she already knows but it’s an illicit Christmas encounter that finally makes her see sense.

Is life about to get better, or will it only get worse?

The path to true love never runs smooth.

Bad Actor

Theo Richards is a very bad actor. He’s told lie after lie, kept secrets so deep and dark . . . and yet, his heart has always been in the right place.

The kind of love most people can only dream of is about to drop into his life. At the same time, his career is about to take off and everything is going to change.

Will he survive the rollercoaster, and does anyone ever really get everything they want?

Bad Wife

Susan has always known exactly what she wants and how to get it. So being told she can’t have something is very hard to take.

Now a year since Adam walked her down the aisle, things are becoming complicated.

They visit a fertility clinic for help once it becomes clear things might not happen naturally. The results are unexpected and send Adam into a tailspin.

Were his friends always right about her?

Or didn’t they give her enough of a chance?

Box Set #2 . . .

Bad Girl

Chloe is travelling around Australia with her boyfriend when she hears some unexpected news from home. Having spent two years dodging reality and living like a nomad, she decides it’s time to quit messing around and finally go after what she wants.

Leaving Cole behind, she heads home to figure out what her future holds – and why things never worked out with Adam.

As with most love stories, nothing is ever as it might first seem . . .

Bad Guys

Saskia is one cool customer, unreadable and off limits. She has her boundaries and lets everyone know so, just without telling them exactly why she has built up this huge wall of protection around herself.

Married men end up becoming a major factor in her love life, but is that a proactive choice, or just bad luck?

The man she finally falls in love with is a shocker . . . and perhaps she’ll end up becoming ostracized because of it.

Bad Lover

Anabel has known Susan since school but their friendship has been so intermittent, she’s always wondered why Susan sometimes disappears and then comes back.

After years of barely any contact, she’s shocked when Susan arrives in London with a story that doesn’t seem to add up.

Susan has been something of a mystery to Anabel all these years and it feels like she may be on the cusp of discovering just what drives her enigmatic friend.

Box Set #3 . . .

Bad Exes

Marie’s marriage is on the rocks. She and Ade haven’t been on the same page for quite a while and when she discovers her ex is single, she decides she has to see him.

Her relationship with Anthony was painful, complicated and passionate. She would have stayed with him forever if she’d had it her own way.

Now she has three kids. A career she loves. A husband who has been there for her, though they haven’t always shared the same connection she had with Anthony.

She will have a difficult choice to make, but there are truths in this story which reveal just how much Marie’s friends influenced her – for better and for worse.

Bad Night

Paul is alone in the world but feels safer this way, with no responsibilities, no temptations. He’s working towards a goal: to get out of the country and never come back.

Then Tom shows up unexpectedly and what starts out as two friends catching up quickly becomes a nightmare.

Evil strikes . . . and one of the friends will lose their life.

Bad Endings

Three love stories round off the epic saga . . .

They say it’s rare that people meet in school, marry AND stay together.

Well, it’s true. Only one couple who met in school and married will stay together in this story.

As the tale draws to a close, everything comes out. Scores will be settled. Truths will be unmasked. No question will go unanswered.

Even if they go their separate ways, it’s clear they will always carry with them the impact they have had on one another.

They’ve influenced each other’s lives, left marks in some cases . . . burned bridges in others.

In the end, they will lament the loss of all they shared.

But everything happens for a reason.

Mega Reading OFFER – THREE Books #FREE

SELF-ISOLATION CARE PACKAGE ALERT!


For those of you isolating/social distancing, I may have something for you. While I’m typing up a storm during this time, you may well be reading up a storm...

Let me take you back ten years, to before I even got pregnant (she’s now eight years old, almost nine). I had a dream that stayed with me for quite a long time and when I was on maternity leave, it was the perfect opportunity to type out that dream. Many people say their dreams feel like they’ve come true or that déjà vu is due to having experienced something before in a dream. So, it’s very weird for me to say that–extremely loosely I might add–the first novel I ever wrote feels like a very rough draft of what is happening right now.

Except in the novel The Radical (formerly titled Beneath the Veil), the year is 2023 when the virus breaks out.


WEIRD INDEED.


Especially as a lot of other things I wrote about in this trilogy have come to pass. I vividly remember writing this novel, and above all the memories of subsequent writing experiences (I’ve written over 30 books now) – my most vivid memory of writing this one is of really struggling with the fiction/reality element. That might have been because I was a journalist and my brain was so wired factually that I found it so tricky to let go and allow myself to run free. Early readers told me this story felt plausible, even though it fell into the sci-fi category. I tried to make the story feel as real as I could but I never could have imagined we’d be facing something similar in the not too distant (N.B. loosely. Very loosely…).

At the end of the day, these books are a work of fiction. However, in the spirit of giving something to distract you, I have made my very first novel FREE to download—as well as the subsequent novels in the trilogy The Informant and The Sentient. So that’s all 3 novels FREE for your Kindles – FOR A LIMITED TIME.

The story is set 40 years post-virus outbreak and it is the characters that make the story – the same as it will be the characters in this world that make the story – the strong people keeping us safe and healthy.

It’s the characters that were so clear to me from this original dream–Seraph, Ryken–stayed with me. This book was born out of being a new mother, wondering what the future would hold for my daughter – my third eye was definitely open during the writing of this trilogy.


This is a work of fiction and of course I got over my own failure to suspend disbelief eventually . . . and threw some major LITERARY LICENCE into the mix in this series. However, it is the characters in these books that prove the enduring strength, humility and unending unconquerable spirit of the vast majority of people doing WHAT IS RIGHT.

Visit this link to begin: mybook.to/radical and you’ll see the full series available to download for FREE……! Let me know once you get started and tell me what you think!

The Bad Series is an epic series of 6+ books (TBC) and charts the lives and loves of a massive friendship group whose lives intertwine. The actions of one often cause many pain, and vice versa. This is a series of epic character building and friendships that have lasted the test of time.

Bad Friends is where you need to start and she’s FREE today only! Scroll for more details…

#1 UK Bestseller in Inspirational Poetry

Blurb

Naked and uncut, Sarah’s second poetry collection is inspired by everyone and everything around her – meaning there is a healthy dose of acerbic wit within these lines, plenty of reality checks and many reminders to love and be kind to yourself.

Sarah wouldn’t describe herself as a feminist but as an advocate for equality, so though this book is predominantly aimed at women, perhaps men may also benefit from this collection – or even learn something about the complex female psyche.

No holds barred, these poems may challenge, infuriate… upset, antagonise, but hopefully overall, uplift and encourage much pause for thought.

One click: mybook.to/naked-observations

Author Note

I am utterly thrilled that my second poetry book is being received just as amazingly as my first one, if not better! Awesome. Poetry is something I’ve been writing much longer than fiction and perhaps why I was so nervous to go in this direction was it’s much more personal – but honestly, I have found poetry to be a way in which I can splurge my mind, hopefully help others and just let you know, we’re in this together, people. Simple as.

Please visit me on Amazon and pick up Naked Observations and Punctures for just 99 pennies each (on sale for a limited time). Or – if you have KU – read them for free.

A New Suspenseful Romance – OUT NOW!

Early Review

I loved every minute of this book; I also may have throttled the author a few times in my mind as I read this story. Her writing skills are outstanding!

Alison Parkins Book Reviews

Blurb

“Survival makes animals of us, Ruben. Animals.”

Ruben and Freya have been friends for two years and still don’t know one another very well. Whenever they meet up for a drink, sex with other people is something they openly discuss, but fooling around with each other is out of the question.

Then right out of the blue, everything changes. Freya can’t stand to have him in her life anymore and Ruben is shocked into action, forced to confess his true feelings.

Endless nights of pure, unbridled passion between two people seemingly destined to be together follow. Freya and Ruben are equally closed books, but as their passion unfolds, so do the pages of their chequered pasts.

There is however, one secret so dark and devastating, it could wreck their lives. As their pasts converge, kismet will play a big part in whether they survive or die.

Available to read for free if you’re a KU subscriber!

*To buy signed copies of Kismet, please contact the author direct. Price is £10 incl. P&P within the UK.*

5 Year Publiversary…!

I published Unbind exactly five years ago and it’s unbelievable that one of my readers’ favourites is THAT old.

The seven-book Sub Rosa Series became so lengthy, telling the stories of multiple characters and their interwoven lives, all because of this one book in which plucky journalist Chloe chases the man she loves and winds up invested in a deadly, destruction mystery you would never imagine possible. Described by many as their favourite romance, you can read it for FREE today. It’s an epic journey that once you start, you won’t be able to get off.

So long, farewell . . .

I remember six years ago, while we were driving up to Scotland and navigating our way around several lochs and mountains, I had my phone in my hand and I was staring at this cover I’d found on a premade site – wondering if it would be a fitting cover for A Fine Profession. A lady dressed in red lingerie just seemed to fit and that image became synonymous with Lottie. When we got home from that trip, buying that cover was the first thing I did. 20+ novels later, it does and it doesn’t feel like a long time ago.

However, there comes a time when you realise a book cannot be defined by just one image – and maybe it’s time to change it up. Not only do I find it particularly hard to source covers for all my books (being they are pretty complex novels and I could never give an insight into my stories with just one picture), but sourcing a new cover for Lottie has been a total headache because, as I say, people have come to me at book signings and bought that book with the words, “Love this cover!” Also, Lottie was my first romance novel so there’s a lot of history attached. Plus, A Fine Pursuit had grown men crying, so I can’t wish for more than that! LOL.

Rather than dwell on the old, let’s focus on the new. I have two new covers for the Chambermaid duet which I really love and do suit this series to a T. I love this series because of the way people reacted to it, but also because Lottie required me to flex my writing muscles and I don’t think I’ve written such a hard-hitting book since.

Please take time to enjoy these new babies, and hopefully purchase the new paperbacks which have been reformatted, resized and with completely new wraparound covers – available on Amazon very soon! The Chambermaid has come a long way in six years!
