FIFTY BOOKS!

Finally, at last, after what seems like a marathon, Sheikh Zahir has a story. It’s taken the best part of six months to get there and, in Diana Metcalfe, he met a totally unsuitable bride. But sometimes that’s the only one that will do.

I was filling in my log – the one in which I write titles, first publication date, character names when I realised that I’d reached an incredible milestone.

THE SHEIKH’S UNSUITABLE BRIDE is my fiftieth book.

Not my fiftieth book for Mills & Boon; I still have to reach that milestone, but fifty books in total.

Wow.

I feel I have to do something special to mark the occasion. To thank all those readers who’ve bought the books, or borrowed them from libraries (you’ll find me on the I Love Libraries website). Who read them and wrote to tell me that you loved them.

The book will be published early in 2008, so I have a little while to think about it, but I’ll definitely be doing something BIG, so stick around!

In the meantime here’s my MARCH COMPETITION...

This month M&B are republishing my BOARDROOM BRIDEGROOMS trilogy in the UK (it’s available at Amazon.ca for those of you in North America).

One of the books in that trilogy was shortlisted for a Rita.

THE QUESTIONS:

Which book?
What are the names of the hero and heroine of that book?

(Hint – you’ll find the answers on my blog!)

Email the answers to me with “Boardroom Bridegrooms Competition” in the subject line and your name will go into the draw on 31 March (if you don’t know the address, there’s a link on my website).

THE PRIZE:

A signed copy of THE SECRET LIFE OF LADY GABRIELLA, (May 2007) a full month before it’s available retail, together with one of Lady G’s fluffy yellow dusters.

Oh, and if you’d like me to email you the first chapter of Lady Gabriella, just put “First Chapter” under your answer.
