A TRICK OF FATE

BRANDON BROTHERS Book One – MAX
Available for PRE-ORDER from Amazon NOW!

Max Brandon made his debut in Cadenza (Rockliffe Book 6). Now he is receiving bills for services he never ordered and goods he did not buy.  (In 250 years’ time, this will be called identity theft – but, it not being among Mother Shipton’s many prophecies, Max doesn’t know that.)  What he does know is that he is going to catch the man responsible whatever the cost. This leads to a haphazard chase involving ruined abbeys, a hunt for hermits, a grotesque portrait … and a love story which, but for an odd trick of fate, might never have been given a second chance.

A TRICK OF FATE will be released on October 25th

THE BLACK MADONNA greeted by 5 star reviews!

“Stella Riley’s excellent Roundheads & Cavaliers series gets off to a rousing start with Alex Wyndham’s reading of The Black Madonna.”

“Dazzling and beautiful – a tale of mystery and love read by a master narrator.”

“If you have never read or listened to a Stella Riley book, please run to get your hands on this one.”

“This book is a treasure, a keeper, to return to again and again!” 

“Fantastic!!! Stella Riley as author and Alex Wyndham as narrator have excelled … ”

“Wonderful narration of a great story!”

“The writing is brilliant; the dialogue is intelligent; the plot is fascinating; and Alex Wyndham is the best narrator I have ever heard.” 

Early 5 stars for the audio of THE BLACK MADONNA

Alex Wyndham gives an outstanding performance in this audiobook; he captures the voices, characters and emotional nuances perfectly … and to hear Luciano as the romantic hero steals my breath. As always, Alex Wyndham elevates the experience to a whole new dimension.”

Awesome! What a great author and narrator!”

HUZZAH! A B.R.A.G. Medallion for THE PLAYER!

I’m thrilled to announce that THE PLAYER has been honoured with a B.R.A.G. (Book Readers’ Appreciation Group) Medallion.

The B.R.A.G. review process is lengthy and detailed and, of the books submitted, only 20% to 25% are awarded a medallion.

Here is what the B.R.A.G, reviewer had to say:-
“This is a GREAT novel. It is the best novel I’ve read for indieBRAG. I am pleased to give it a very high rating. I have found a new historical romance author. THANK YOU. I love this book so much I had to get a paperback copy as well to have and to hold. One of the most fun stories I have ever read. I love, love, love this book and recommend it for a B.R.A.G. medallion.”

The Rockliffe series was recommended in THE TIMES!

Yes – really!
Here is what Hilary Rose had to say:-

Are you a Georgette Heyer fan? Are you sad that she’s unlikely to write another Regency romance, on account of her having died in 1974? Well, I have exciting news: Stella Riley’s The Parfit Knight; honestly, it’s as good as Georgette. I read all five books in the series back to back on the way to work and loved them all. I finished the last one while actually walking over London Bridge, because I couldn’t put it down. Read it now. Thank me later.


Wow! I certainly never expected this!
