Two people. One chance meeting. Seven days to Christmas.
Isobel Bennett is waiting for the number 11 bus when a man quite literally falls into her lap. Snow is falling, Christmas lights are twinkling, and a gorgeous man with dark brown hair has just slipped on ice and is now pressed against Isobel.
Isobel knows she’s not imagining the chemistry between them. But then his ride arrives and, embarrassed, he beats a hasty retreat, murmuring apologies – and Isobel realises only too late that she didn’t manage to catch his name…
When she runs into him again the next morning, she decides it’s fate.
It’s a second chance for Isobel and Tom – but there’s only one week until she’s leaving London for good. Seven days of enjoying all the festive delights the city has to offer: ice-skating at Somerset House, mulled wine on the Southbank, Christmas shopping at Liberty.
There’s magic in the air and mistletoe in the trees – but what will happen when the week is over?
For fans of Josie Silver, Lucy Diamond and Marian Keyes, this is one Christmas romance you don’t want to miss!

I am so pleased to be involved in the mini blog blitz celebrating and promoting Nicole Locke’s latest historical romance novel: Secrets of a Highland Warrior.  I reviewed this novel on my blog back in June so I’m excited to share it again with the blog blitz.

Secrets of a Highland Warrior is book four in the unique Scottish Highland historical romance series that is written by four different authors set in the same Scottish Highlands but in four different time periods. If you’ve never read any historical romance before this series would be a good starting point with it visiting different periods of time; you can then decide which period you prefer or if like me you’ve discovered a new era and have fallen in love with new historical time zones.

I would strongly recommend reading the books in the order they were published as you can then get a sense of the storyline, the secrets, the mystery and the rugged landscape.  The books in the series are :

His Convenient Highland Wedding by Janice Preston
Unlaced by the Highland Duke by Lara Temple
A Runaway Bride for the Highlander by Elisabeth Hobbes
Secrets of a Highland Warrior by Nicole Locke

Secrets of a Highland Warrior is my first introduction to the work of Nicole Locke and her writing style drew me into a tale full of secrets, deceit, danger and love in the Scottish hills in the year of 1293.

The landscape of the highlands was strategically owned by different clans and the Chief of Clans were very protective of their land. However, when the King had granted some of the adjoining land to the Lochmore estate it was to cause a change of events for the future for many. As this adjoining land was currently owned by the McCleish clan and they were not to give up the land too easy.

Rory, son of the Chief of the Lochmore clan, was on his way to claim this new land. With his best friend Paiden and a few of his clansmen, he anticipated a fight would be forthcoming. What he didn’t anticipate was the daughter of the Tanish of the McCleish clan being part of the bargain.

Ailsa was the healer for the McCleish clan and was currently treating Hamish, Chief of the McCleish clan, who was gravely ill. Ailsa had been trained well by her predecessor and had been privy to secrets, which at first Ailsa thought were folklore between clans but when she meets Rory and notices certain traits about him Ailsa begins to wonder whether the words she heard in secret were actually true.

When danger reaches Rory’s party a race against time to save lives is at stake and Rory has to put his trust in someone he has only just met and that they are from an opposing clan.

With age old secrets and bitter feuds between clansmen slowly revealing themselves Nicole Locke has given us an historical mystery that is soon filled with a chemistry that sparks between opposing clans folk.

I have completely fallen in love with The Lochmore Legacy series with each story unearthing new facts surrounding mysteries of long ago with a clash of clans and a clash of hearts within each instalment. The epilogue rounds off the series beautifully which left me feeling quite emotional and bereft. Hats off to all four authors for a great concept for a historical romance series.

Book Blurb

In this heart-warming narrative based on a true story, a British airman embarks on a plan that risks it all to feed a starving, war-stricken family. 

Thirty years after serving in World War II, middle-aged Rob’s holiday plans see an unforeseen change that leads him on a coach tour of Italy. Struggling with post-war PTSD and depression, he reluctantly agrees to the journey – and sparks a dream that plunges him into long-stifled memories.

Set in Europe, Sue Parritt’s Feed Thy Enemy is an account of courage and compassion in the face of trauma. When Rob’s flashback delves into his attempts to save a famished family with a series of increasingly daring raids on his army’s supply stores, will he trigger suppressed remembrances of past war, love, and sacrifice – and find the strength to confront them in the present?

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Sue Parritt’s latest novel:  Feed Thy Enemy.  This is my first introduction to the work of Sue Parritt and she writes with such authenticity and I totally appreciate the research undertaken for this novel.

Feed Thy Enemy is a remarkable story based on the real life experiences of one man’s courage and compassion during WWII.  During his time based in Italy RAF Sergeant Rob Harper strikes up an unlikely friendship with an Italian family and feels compelled to help them by smuggling food and buying much needed supplies and treats.  However, the war, like many thousands of others, has left Rob with debilitating flashbacks and his mind is never at rest from what he’s seen and endured.

Just over thirty years on from the end of the war Rob’s life is about to take a journey back in time.  A journey he’s taken in his head many times but also a journey he’s afraid to take.  When holiday plans are scuppered and an opportune trip to Italy is offered Rob and his wife Ivy feel like fate has played it’s hand at giving Rob this time to revisit places and people that have haunted him for many years.

I was totally captivated by this story; the author Sue Parritt has written a very raw, honest account of a serviceman’s life in a war torn country many miles from home.  You can sense and acknowledge the pain of losing a comrade, a friend and a feeling of hopelessness of the situation.  It took the military and the government a long time to acknowledge the symptons of PTSD  and many servicemen suffered greatly without any proper treatment.

Feed Thy Enemy is a historical time slip story told from the heart with compassion and honesty.  It is based on the authors own father’s experiences during his time serving with the RAF.  It’s an emotionally fuelled story but one that will leave you wanting to know what happened next to Rob, his family and his friends he made during WWII.
