It is no surprise to anyone that, when you reach the fifth book in a series, a lot of water has already passed under the bridge. However, one of my beta-readers has suggested that, on this occasion, I warn potential readers that Hazard begins a week after The Wicked Cousin ended … and as well as featuring a new story, continues a previously unresolved thread.
I’ve added an Extras page to my website and in a week or so subscribers to the site will have the chance for a sneak peek into Hazard. This, and future similar snippets or offers, will not be available on Facebook – so why not hop over to stellarileybooks.co.uk and subscribe now?
HAZARD – Rockliffe Book Five – is now available for pre-order.
A cardsharp turned businessman, a duke’s charming brother, a stubborn, razor-edged beauty and a desperate widow. Four players in a game of Hazard … a game made riskier when Fate is rolling the dice.
Pre-order now from:-
Barnes & Noble, Kobo and Smashwords
Hazard will be released on February 23rd.
I’m so thrilled with the new Marigold Chain cover. Here’s what clever Ana has done with the paperback.
Available from Amazon and Createspace – and soon to become an audiobook!
2016 may have been a lousy year on the world-wide stage but it’s been an exceptionally good one for me.
In May, I published the long-awaited fourth book in the Roundheads & Cavaliers series – Lords of Misrule – which I’m delighted to say made it on to Caz’s Best of 2016 List at All About Romance as well as Wendy Loveridge’s list at Romantic Historical Reviews.
But the biggest adventure of my year was the transformation of four of my titles into audiobooks – something which, back in 2015, I’d never have dreamed was possible. And along the way, I had the privilege and absolute pleasure of working with Alex Wyndham who, as anyone who has ever listened to him knows, is incredibly talented. He’s also a thoroughly nice guy.
The Rockliffe books … The Parfit Knight, The Mesalliance and The Player … were recorded back-to-back in the spring and released by April.
Once again, I’m delighted to announce that – thanks to brilliant Alex – all three Rockliffe audios made it on to the Best of 2016 at AudioGals and also at Ladeetdareads. I’d like to say a huge THANK YOU! to those reviewers whose ratings and kind remarks put them there.
And last but by no means least, A Splendid Defiance also made it into audio (by the skin of its teeth!) before the end of the year and therefore managed to join the Rockliffe series on the AudioGals Best of 2016 and find a place on Caz’s list at Romantic Historical Reviews.
So … an eventful year for me and a very successful one. I’m currently working on Rockliffe Four – The Wicked Cousin – which I hope to complete by the spring.
Meanwhile, I’d like to wish all my readers, reviewers and friends – and particularly those who are all three – a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2017 filled with everything you wish for yourselves.
