At the start of my (still new!) TikTok journey, I decided to do a post about my favourite cover, which meant that I spent a happy hour or two going through my back list in my bookcases. After about sixty books and novellas, I’d forgotten a lot of them – in fact I couldn’t even remember the hero and heroine’s names of some, I’m ashamed to say. So I thought, why not take a little tour over the next few months, back in time, and rediscover some of my favourites, and share some insider information at the same time.
So my first back list book choice is (drum roll!) A Forbidden Liaison with Miss Grant. Why? Well for a start it’s set in Edinburgh, one of my favourite cities. Then it’s an older couple – at least in historical romance terms – both Constance and Grayson are in their forties, and they have a LOT of baggage. It takes place during the visit of King George IV in 1822, when Walter Scott decked the city in tartan, which gave me plenty of scope for having some fun (I absolutely hate bagpipes). My heroine has a very unusual (and secret) occupation, which allowed me to bring in a dreadful bit of Scottish history in the Highland Clearances. And finally, there’s a bit of ‘east meets west’ – as in a Weegie (Glasgwegian) in Edinburgh.
Have I made you want to read it – or re-read it? What book from my back list would you like to know more about? Do let me know here, or on any of my other social media.
