My lovely friend, Jules, has just received the photo shot of her new book cover. Isn't it gorgeous?
Talk to me will be published by Choc Lit next year and I can't wait to read it. Well done Jules!

A princess in hiding.
Dispatched by the king to retrieve his headstrong, errant daughter, Lucas Garcia thought this was just another day at the office. That's before he meets Princess Claudine Verbault, who's adamant that returning to the kingdom that banished her as a child is never going to happen.
A barely concealed attraction!
Hidden from the spotlight, the now-independent Claudia has learned the art of being the anti-perfect princess. But Lucas does not look like the kind of man to accept insubordination! If only she could bargain with this frustratingly immovable man.... and give him something to distract him from his duty!
It's always exciting to read debut books by new Mills and Boon authors and this book did not disappoint.
Claudia is a highly intelligent woman and brilliant scientist who just needs a little more time and more funding to come up with a cure for the condition that plagued her childhood. She was packed off to a hospital in England as a child and has never forgiven her parents for abandoning her. Lucas is the man responsible for restoring order to her parent's kingdom and the man her father sends to bring her home. Only trouble is Claudia has no intention of going with him, but Lucas won't take no for an answer.
Lucas is a gorgeous hero, sexy as hell, but with a traumatic past. Claudia is a great heroine - vulnerable but with lots of determination and inner strength, and they make a perfect couple. I loved the ballroom scenes which showed how far Claudia had come from the woman she was at the start of the story.
A great debut novel and I give it 4 out of 5.
