I know that a lot of you will be pleased to hear that Blood Sisters, my original novel of POSH DOOM and aristocratic iniquity during the French Revolution will be available thanks to an exciting collaboration with the superb Burning Eye as a limited edition paperback in the very near future, which should be good news for those of you without Kindles who have been asking when you’ll be able to read my books!
When the beautiful Comtesse de Saint-Valèry is dragged unwillingly from her Parisian home in the dead of night, her three young daughters are left to an uncertain fate at the hands of their father in a world that is teetering on the very edge of Revolution.
Cassandre, the eldest is a beautiful and heartless society beauty, trapped in an unhappy marriage and part of the dazzling court of Versailles. Lucrèce, her twin, is married to a man she adores but he pushes her away for another woman. Meanwhile, Adélaïde, the youngest, rebels against the destiny that her position in society appears to have doomed her to.
As the horror, turmoil and excitement of the French Revolution unfolds around them, the three very different sisters struggle to survive the bloodshed, find love and discover their true selves…
What some of my favourite writers had to say about Blood Sisters:

storytelling left me longing for more.’ — Susan Higginbotham, author of The Stolen Crown, Her Highness, The Traitor and The Queen of Last Hopes.
‘A gripping tale of the French Revolution.‘ – Catherine Delors, author of Mistress of the Revolution and For The King.
‘Utterly gripping and compulsive reading from the first page, this is lavishly written historical fiction set in the French Revolution. Three aristocratic sisters attempt to survive the Terror as their pampered lives are changed forever. First class.‘ – Victoria Lamb, author of Witchstruck, The Queen’s Secret and His Dark Lady.
