The Sheikh's Temporary Princess?
Copy-editing (to catch the boring stuff like typing errors, spelling mistakes, whether I got into a muddle with my time-line and that my heroine's eyes didn't change colour half way through. (None of that happened!)
It's still without a title, although in my head it will always be The Sheikh's Temporary Princess. I'll let you know what the combined might of editorial, marketing and the tealady decide when they've made up their mind.
The publication date - so far - is February 2017 which seems a very long time to wait here's link to my Pinterest page where I gathered loads of lovely inspirational pictures of jewellery, clothes, shaded courtyards and of course my hero.
Meanwhile, allow me to introduce Sheikh Ibraham al-Ansari (Bram to those who know him), former downhill race ski champion, superb horseman - the disgraced and disinherited heir to the throne of Umm al-Basr.
He's in a jam. (Make that another jam.) He's got a temporary PA from the fabulous Garland Agency - the uber efficient Ruby Dance - but what he really needs is a temporary wife.
"Garland Girls" have a legendary status, but will this "Girl" live up to the billing and save him from an arranged marriage?
Serial Liz Fielding fans will remember that Amanda Garland first appeared in her brother's story, Dating Her Boss and I thought she was so interesting that I wrote her own story. It's told in the The Baby Plan.
Oh, and her step-daughter, Sadie Redford, runs the car hire company that gave things a helping hand in the Sheikh's Unsuitable Bride. Which reminds me. Sadie really deserves her own happy ending.
