Poor Tristan...

He's either dead, or he's the victim of a shocking assault by a blonde nymphomaniac. Either way, he doesn't look a) happy or b) like a man in the throes of intense passion, does he?


Anyway, Spanish Aristocrat, Forced Bride is coming out in the UK in September which seems like ages away, but I happen to have one spare pink hardback copy like the one above. If you email me via the website before next Tuesday I'll get one of the daughters to pick a name out and send it off to you.
In the meantime, on a much more jolly note, if you're anywhere near a radio this morning make sure it's tuned to Radio 4 at 10am, and listen to Mills & Boon goddess Penny Jordan on Woman's Hour. I love Woman's Hour. Jenni Murray's calm, no-nonsense presence in my kitchen kept me sane through many a rainy morning of finger painting with toddlers, and I love Penny Jordan even more, so I'm very excited. She's going to be talking about Mills & Boon's expansion into the Indian market, and actually meeting the winner of the contest to find new authors in India (Congratulations to Milan Vohra!)
Right... I'm off to put the kettle on, make toast and take the phone off the hook...

Hmmm, he does look a bit bemused doesn't he? Maybe he's there thinking, 'Perhaps if I just don't breathe she'll leave me alone...'
But she is gorgeous, and I LOVE the backdrop. Heard Penny on BBC, she was great wasn't she? And Milan - what great ambassadors for M&B.

And he really is quite nice to look at...if a little, um, stiff? LOL

But honey it COULD be worse. LOL

A classic case of 'He's Just Not That Into You' I'd say!

Yes, Penny was fabulous wasn't she? It's so exciting to have authors in India too; evidence of the international language of romance!

You're right, of course Donna. He is lovely. And it would be worse if he looked dead AND ugly...

Decent clobber this time though, India! At least the Man in Beige didn't resurface, that would have been so cruel...

Love,
Rach.

They still haven't quite got the hang of book cover images have they ...? :-)

Although from your description of him looking like he needs to be the victim of a shocking assault by a blonde nymphomaniac ... I would be happy to model for that one myself ...:-)

Keep up the good work.

Hmmm yes I wouldn't mind being the nympho in this pic myself! Although honestly the guy does look like he's got a fart stuck up his ... errmmm sorry about that!

India said...

Decent-ish, Rach, though I can't help thinking naked would be better. (Am I being too honest now?)

Ha-- good idea Marc! I think the cover shots are done in Toronto at the moment, but you should definitely go over and offer your services on one side of the lens or the other! I read somewhere (can't remember where, which is annoying) that Colin and Justin the Scottish interior designers who used to have a programme on TV here (and are blissfully married to each other) have modelled for Harlequin covers, so you should definitely go for it!!

Amanda, quite. Nuf said!
