As I wrote earlier in the week, in my article ‘We read to know we’re not alone’, during these difficult times reading can provide solace. I want to offer you a chance to escape to someplace beautiful with a book, which is why I have decided to give away my novel Burning Embers for FREE to all readers.
Burning Embers was my very first novel, the book that put me on the road to this great adventure, and it has a very special place in my heart. It’s set in one of the most unspoilt and scenic places on earth: Kenya.
The novel tells the story of Coral Sinclair, a beautiful but naive twenty-five-year-old photographer who has just lost her father. She is leaving the life she’s known and travelling to Kenya to take ownership of her inheritance, the plantation that was her childhood home – Mpingo. On the voyage from England, she meets an enigmatic stranger to whom she has a mystifying attraction.
She sees the man again days later on the beach near Mpingo, but Coral’s childhood nanny tells her the man is not to be trusted. It is rumoured that Rafe de Monfort, owner of a neighbouring plantation and a nightclub, is a notorious womaniser having an affair with her stepmother, which may have contributed to her father’s death.
Circumstance confirms Coral’s worst suspicions, but when Rafe’s life is in danger she is driven to make peace. A tentative romance blossoms amidst a meddling ex-fianceé, a jealous stepmother, a car accident, and the dangerous wilderness of Africa.
Is Rafe just toying with a young woman’s affections? Is the notorious womaniser only after Coral’s inheritance? Or does Rafe’s troubled past colour his every move, making him more vulnerable than Coral could ever imagine?
Set in 1970, this contemporary historical romance sends the seemingly doomed lovers down a destructive path wrought with greed, betrayal, revenge, passion, and love.
