Reasons why I love my job . . .

Sometimes I curse and swear when a character won't behave or a plot gets totally knotted, but really, althought slightly wierd, writing romance is a great way to earn a living.

Some days there are parcels and parcels of books that arrive - this last week alone, there have been


French editions of The Sicilian's Red-Hot Revenge, and The Spaniard's Inconvenient Wife and Cordero's Forced Bride.

Brazilian editions of Cordero's Forced Bride, Bedded By the Greek Billionaire, The Greek Tycoon's Unwilling Wife, Sicilian Husband,Blackmailed Bride, The Sicilian's Red-Hot Revenge


Polish copies of The Greek Tycoon's Unwilling Wife
German, Portugese, Japanese and Dutch editions of Cordero's Forced Bride

The foreign languages collection in Hull library is going to be happy with me!


Other reasons to smile -

The Konstantos Marriage Demand has 3 five star rating son the Mills & Boon web site- when the readers rate your book, that's what it's all about! Oh and Claimed by the Sicilian is at #2 in the bestselling listing of the M&B By Requests titles.



And last night I spent the evening with a glass of wine and two great DVDs - and it was all research.

Honest.

Nothing but research.


The DVDs were supposed to have been this drama. . . but for reasons beyond my control they ended up being something else. Oh well, North and South can always be used for inspiration . . .

More clues? Well the 'special project' is sort of linked to a famous author who was born on this date in 1816 . . .


Oh and the post lady has just delivered an extra treat in the shape of the latest great romance by a special favourite author - Liz Fielding - A Wedding at Leopard Tree Lodge - and I might actually have time to read it!
Can't wait.

Like I said, sometime I love my job!

Hi Kate
North & Sound is my most favourite costume drama, I adore it, mainly because of Richard Armitage. He plays an incredible John Thornton, he makes me melt everytime I see it. I think I must have watched it 15 times.
What an inspiration he is to any hopeful alpha male!
xx Karen

I have to confess never seeing North and South. Shock horror! But I think I'll have to get hold of it somehow. Like you say - for research purposes only - and Richard A of course. Caroline x

Great post Kate. Like you a copy of A Wedding at Leopard Tree Lodge arrived in my post as well. I'm loving it especially Josie, the event planner.
