CONTRACT SIGNED!

I am delighted to announce that my second novel, The Devil To Pay has been contracted by The Wild Rose Press. It will be published as part of the Millionaire's Club series in the Champagne Rose imprint. Here's the blurb:

They should never have met, let alone fallen in love …

Italian CEO, Daniel Bracchi, wants to close his failing Welsh quarry, and he always gets what he wants. He doesn’t count on his feisty accountant Rianna Peters fighting him all the way – she’s grown used to fighting for everything in life.

From the poor valleys of South Wales to the privileges of Portofino, a clash of cultures is inevitable, as is the seismic sexual attraction between them. Daniel can’t get her hot curves out of his head, but he’s a no strings man and Rianna won’t be used just for sex again. Not when she’s thinking clearly anyway; tall, dark, charismatic Daniel has a habit of blowing all her good intentions and inhibitions away …
 
Rianna’s not the woman Daniel thought she was. She deserves so much more and he wants to give it to her. Rianna dare not hope that they have a future together and discovers that being a gifted child isn’t always a blessing.

Smoke turns to flame and their high-octane affair unearths buried secrets of sex, tragedy and betrayal. The stakes are high, maybe too high for love to overcome.
 
So, the valleys of South Wales and the glamour of Portofino are almost within your reach. I'll let you know the minute I have a release date, but now I have a party to get ready for. The Romantic Novelists' Association's winter party is now just hours away, I'll be back with pictures!

Fantastic news, Rachel - can't wait to get my copy. A Welsh Italian hero, what a combination. I'm thinking Jilly Cooper's Gareth with Latin looks and a Richard Burton accent...
