Guest Blog: Welcome Carol MacLean!
Thanks, Cara, for inviting me to guest on your blog so that I can promote my new E-Book 'Wild For Love' published by Astraea Press. I am a writer based in Scotland, writing pocket novel romances for 'My Weekly'.
As Cara's blog theme is writing, reading and living in London I wondered how I would make a link with my book which is set in Glasgow. Hmmm - yes, the Queen's Diamond Jubilee brought the whole country together in a very happy celebration (I didn't get quite as far south as London but had a lovely time in Yorkshire over the holiday weekend). Let's not forget that the Olympics will be followed by the Commonwealth Games to be held in Glasgow. So there are links. However when I re-read the blurb for my book I realised I didn't need to worry. The hero, Jake, is a Londoner born and bred. Phew! Here is the book hook:
Polly is an ecologist, passionate and uncompromising about wildlife rights. Against her better judgment she falls in love with Jake, heir to a London media empire, whose development company is about to destroy a beautiful marsh. Can love ever blossom between two such different people as Polly battles to save the marsh? The story is set against the stunning scenery of Scotland as Polly learns to compromise for love and Jake finally finds the life he has always desired.
I've written a few pocket novels now but Jake is my favourite hero - he's gorgeous and sexy and if I wasn't married, I'd love to meet him in real life. I'm very fond of Polly too - she makes mistakes, is hot-headed and opinionated but in the end, as the saying goes...love conquers all.
If you would like to read Jake and Polly's story, you can get it straight from Astraea: www.astraeapress.com
