Before we look at the blurbs and extracts of these stories, here are Eva’s answers to my questions:

  1. What triggered this anthology?

Season to remember illustration for Three Ships

‘Three Ships’ by Elizabeth Ellen Carter

Blurb:

An adventure romance set in the early 19th century on the Devon Coast.

Excerpt from Three Ships

“Why doesn’t the lieutenant do something?” Laura whispered tautly.

“Just wait,” her father insisted.

Blackwell too had stopped running as he watched his two men close the gap. They were now only ten yards away when Renten picked up the lantern, pulled out the candle and dropped it in the cauldron.

The blackguards closed in – five yards, two yards – then the powder in the cauldron ignited. Renten disappeared in a flash of light and billowing smoke.

The two men ran into the miasma and, a moment later, their cries of distress were heard as they ran right off the edge of the cliff.

Laura gripped her father’s hand at the sound and the sight.

When the white-blue smoke cleared, the cliff edge was deserted, save for the cauldron.

Season to remember illustration for Sands of Time

 ‘Sands of Time’ by Noelle Clark

Blurb:

Kitty faces her first Christmas without the love of her life. She looks back with fondness on the memories of Christmases past and, with the love and support of her grandson Joe, finds inner strength to face the future with anticipation. Kitty realises that, as she gets older, time passes so quickly. Although sad and happy memories flood through her on this special Christmas day, she chooses to embrace every moment of life.

Excerpts: Sands of Time

Excerpt 1

They were nearing Kingfisher Island. Not a grain of the tract that joined the small sandy cay to the mainland was visible. A couple of small boats were moored along the deep channel on the southern side of the causeway, with people fishing from them. The boats bobbed up and down on the whitecaps, sometimes disappearing from view, then emerging again.

“Just over there, please, Joe. Near that clump of mangroves.”

Joe pulled on one oar, turning the bow of the boat towards where she pointed. Within a minute, she heard the sand scraping against the keel under the boat. Clamping her hand on the gunwale for support, she stood carefully and jumped over the side, landing in knee-deep water. Joe shipped the oars and joined her, the water not even reaching halfway to his knees. He grabbed the pointy prow and pulled the boat up onto the beach.

She gazed around her, the familiar sight of the few remaining stumpy mangrove trees, and the covering of pigface on the small dunes bringing a lump to her throat. The mauve star-shaped blossoms of the coastal succulent groundcover looked exactly as they had done for all these years. Nature’s legacy, constant and predictable, unlike humans, whose term on this planet was fleeting. For a moment she recalled the faint, salty perfume of the little dune succulents whose strong roots helped the sandy hillocks from washing away with each tide. When crushed, they emitted a soft waft of delicate scent. Not for the first time, she wondered why they’d been given the hideous name of pigface.

Joe’s outstretched hand appeared before her eyes, inviting her to take it. She refocused her vision, reached out, grasped it, and took a few steps through the water and up towards the sandy beach. Joe tugged gently on her hand, helping her to stand upright in the choppy waters which made the little boat bob roughly. A cascade of spray caught them both in the face as it slapped against the side of the wooden boat with a thud. They laughed in unison, blinking at each other through salt-filled eyes.

“Gotcha, Nan.” Joe’s smile, always so generous, beamed at her. She smiled back, raised her arm, and wiped her face with the sleeve of her blouse.

He held on to her hand until she reached the dry beach, then he stretched into the prow of the dinghy and pulled out an anchor attached to a sturdy rope, walked further up the beach, and buried it firmly into the sand. When it was secured, Joe turned and retrieved the picnic basket and the rest of the things they needed for their visit to the island, and deposited them where the low dunes met the beach. She walked to the picnic basket, leaned over and opened it, took out an old blue blanket, and spread it down on the sparse tufts of grass. Ignoring her sand-encrusted feet, she stepped onto the blanket, sank back on her elbows and gazed dreamily up at the cobalt sky.

Excerpt 2

“Merry Christmas.” He reached into a small canvas tote and pulled out a small, square box wrapped in Christmas paper and tied with red and green ribbon.

She took his face in her hands and kissed him tenderly.

He pulled away, his face as eager as a child’s. “Here, open it.”

She ripped off the ribbon and tore at the paper. Inside was a dark red velvet box. She flipped open the lid, revealing two gold earrings set with dark blue sapphires. Love swelled inside her, almost making her swoon. Unshed tears stung the backs of her eyes.

“They’re beautiful!” Her words were barely audible. She kissed him again, deeply, lovingly. When they broke their embrace, Billy rose and walked over to his wooden dinghy, untied the plastic mistletoe, and returned, attaching it to a stumpy mangrove bush next to where they were lying on their towels.

He lay down next to her again. She still remembered how his eyes looked that day—deep, dark pools exuding love. He bent his head and kissed her. “I love you so much, Kathryn. I adore you.”

Their embrace, fuelled by their love, fanned the flames of passion. There, on the sandy crescent of beach on Kingfisher Island, with no witnesses save some gulls and a few waterbirds, they consummated their love for the first time, pledging their devotion—and their lives—to each other.

Season to remember illustration for All That Glitters ‘All That Glitters’ by Eva Scott

Blurb:

Molly is a modern day Cinderella, second best to her half-sister Aimee and never measuring up to her step-mother’s expectations. Now Aimee has the chance to marry an elderly millionaire and Molly is expected to keep the man’s grandson, Connor Rathmore, from sabotaging the event. Handsome, charismatic and very, very sexy – how is she going to keep him from sabotaging her heart?

Excerpt: All That Glitters

“Well, are you ready?” She sounded rude but it was all she could manage to say. On the way over to pick him up she’d been too preoccupied to consider him at all. Instead she replayed the conversation she’d had with her stepmother. After receiving a reprimand for arriving late, Maria had grilled her over Connor Rathmore and found her answers less than satisfactory. Then the lecture started on her appearance. Where were the shoes? She’d kicked off those horrible expensive shoes at the airport and hadn’t given them another thought. An unforgivable act in her stepmother’s eyes. It was impressed upon her that she must try harder and remember her sister’s happiness. Of course. Molly loved her half-sister, Aimee, despite the fact the girl was spoilt rotten. Underneath all the embellishments she really did have a good heart. It wasn’t Aimee’s fault she’d been raised to be a life-sized doll.

She appraised the man before her. She steeled herself not to react to him. When he’d opened the hotel room door, more primal male than any man she had ever encountered, something unexpected happened to her. Bam! Right to the heart. Very inconvenient and impossible, the idea could not be entertained. Not for a millisecond. The consequences would be devastating.

“Good evening to you too.” He bestowed what she assumed was his best killer smile. “Shall we go?”

He stepped through the door, so close the heat radiating off his body hit her like a furnace. Her natural reserve began to melt. The scent of him was so… masculine and her knees wobbled as she caught her breath. Moving away wasn’t an option, even if she tried.

He smiled as if aware of the effect he had on her. Without looking back he strode towards the elevator and pushed the button. They stood in silence side by side while they waited. The animal magnetism between them shimmered, increasing with every passing second.

Molly’s senses scrambled. She stumbled into the lift. This situation would need careful handling. The man beside her must not guess his presence caused a meltdown. Her attraction to him created a complication she did not need. Just one week. Please help me make it through this one week. If her stepmother suspected an attraction between Molly and Connor, all hell would break loose.

Season to remember illustration for A Touch of Christmas ‘A Touch of Christmas’ by Susanne Bellamy

Blurb:

As Starship Bluefire settles into orbit around Earth, Captain Andra Veluthian anticipates meeting her favourite human, Colonel Nick Madigan. Have his efforts to save the planet succeeded? And if so, will she lose any chance to be with him?

Knowing Andra’s fascination with all things Terran, Nick has planned a surprise for her. After all, it is Christmas, the season of giving. But when Earth’s leader and the Gravlarian captain spend time planet side, the temperature soars.

Excerpts: A Touch of Christmas

Excerpt 1

Starship Bluefire – Log entry #1878 Orbit established around Planet Earth. Local time: 0715 – 22 December 2525 AD

“Reverse thruster off. Docking complete, Captain.”

Captain Andra Veluthian ordered her viewing screen to retract, rolled her shoulders then rested her head against the padded headrest of her Conforma-chair and looked at the view. Framed by a huge window on the bridge, planet Earth appeared close and surprisingly whiter than on her last stopover two years earlier. Through breaks in the dense cloud cover she could even discern the long coastline of what Earth dwellers used to call South America and, just appearing on the western edge across an expanse of ocean, was the island continent they called Australia. Home of the wombat, wallaroo and one handsome colonel.

Colonel Nicholas Madigan, political leader and guiding hand in Earth’s struggle against extinction.

Last visit, the fair-haired colonel had set more than a few hearts pounding among her crew. Including hers.

Excerpt 2

Beyond a set of double doors, a large, round, backlit table occupied the centre of the conference room. Patterned with galaxies and distant star systems, it was a thing of beauty in an otherwise utilitarian space. As a symbol, it was priceless. Gravlarian attitudes were rather like the Arthurian legends he’d read about. As in the fabled court of Camelot, their round table accorded all attendees the same right to speak as equals.

Light refreshments were served as a preliminary to the serious business ahead of them and his delegation intermingled with the Gravlarians. Diplomacy demanded he chatted with members of her staff but when they assembled at the round meeting table, Nick made sure he was beside Andra. She stopped beside two vacant seats. Was the starship captain’s inclination the same as his?

At the touch of his hands, a seat automatically unclamped from the table. He held it, knowing the gesture would not be lost on her. Her tawny eyes widened and their colour deepened, rivalling a desert sunset. Basking in the glow, he almost forgot the reason for their meeting today, the report cached in his wrist-corder.

Clearing his throat, he keyed in his guest access code on the reader embedded in the table, followed by his palm print. “I’m ready.”

Breakfast tea with Eve Devon

Tea with Elsa

 

Today I’m having breakfast tea with the lovely Eve Devon and she’s talking about her latest book, The Love List – the second of a trilogy about the King family although it can also be read as a standalone.

But first, her answers to my questions:

A. Quickies

  1. Tea or wine?

Tea – breakfast is my fave but I also like chamomile and rooibos. Oh, and I’m also partial to a nice glass of Rioja!

  1. Read or jog?

Read

  1. Cats or dogs?

Dog

  1. Heels or flats?

Hmm, heels for a night out – flats the rest of the time.

  1. Boxers or briefs?

Commando!

  1. Milk, dark or white chocolate

Dark

  1. Sweet or savoury

Savoury

  1. Sea or mountains

Sea

B. Five likes and five dislikes

  1. The word “pootle”.
  2. Long walks on frosty mornings.
  3. Christmas decorations – both gaudy and sophisticated!
  4. Old people holding hands or smiling softly at each other—all that life contained in a hand-hold or a look.
  5. The kaboom of waves crashing against rocks and the swishy hiss as the bubbling water recedes.

Dislikes

  1. Sushi – I know – I keep trying to like it but…nope!
  2. That there isn’t a dance show on TV 365 nights of the year.
  3. People who drop litter.
  4. Actors who use paper coffee cups as a prop, and then wang them about like there’s no coffee inside (also the hollow sound the cup makes when they put it down on a table…because clearly it’s empty!).
  5. Cars and vans parked on pavements so that pedestrians can’t pass by without walking into the road.

C. Three things on your bucket list

  1. I’d love to have a go at being an aerialist. The silk rope or cloud swing looks like so much fun.
  2. Visit all the major museums in the world.
  3. Write a best seller.

D. What triggered this specific story?

The Love List is my second book in a trilogy about the King family, although it can be read as a standalone. When I was writing Her Best Laid Plans (the first book) I knew the hero Jared King had two younger sisters called Leonora (Nora) and Seraphina (Sephy). As I was writing about Jared learning how to re-connect with family he hasn’t seen in ten years I knew I had to write about how his leaving had affected Nora and Sephy and the King family business.

I love writing about family dynamics and find characteristics presented by the ‘elder/first’ child, the ‘middle’ child and the ‘baby’ of the family fascinating. For instance, what happens to the ‘peace-maker/middle’ child, and the ‘rebel/baby’ of the family if the ‘eldest/responsible’ child walks away from his birthright at twenty-one? How do their roles change? Who do they become as individuals shaped by their family history?

The Love List is Nora’s story. Nora King is the middle child who took the role of responsible child at nineteen when her brother left and she decided she wanted to be everything her father needed to run the family business.

Now twenty-nine and a workaholic, Nora King definitely doesn’t have falling in love on her To Do List. She doesn’t have time. She’s too busy doing everything in her power to keep her grief contained while keeping the business afloat after the death of their father. Enter sexy, laid-back disaster relief worker Ethan Love!

Blurb: The Love List

Falling in love is just not on Nora King’s To Do List…

Neither is accidentally super-gluing her shoe to her hand right before the biggest presentation of her life! With all the hard work she’d put into securing the family business after her father’s death, Nora has no choice but to accept help from a knight in shining armour.

Disaster relief worker Ethan Love is still haunted by his last deployment, and desperate for distraction. He’s in town to ask Nora for a major favour, and swooping in to save her presentation is a sure way to get her on side.

As Ethan sticks around and helps Nora through her grief, her barriers tumble down…but will she dare to swap her To Do lists for a How to Fall in Love list?

Meet the character – Don Cavallo

There’s someone very dear to me I’d like to introduce to you all.

Everyone, meet Don.

Don, this is all the people.

Today, I’m joining a Meet the Character bloghop to introduce you all to my favorite main guy, Don Cavallo from Touched to the heart which was released in July 2014.

Thanks to Louise Rose-Innes for tagging me in on the fun.

Thanks again for letting me join the fun, Louise!

Meet the Character

What is the name of your character? Is s/he fictional/historical?

I’m going to let Don introduce himself…

My name is Don Cavallo. Our mother has a restaurant, Rosa’s in Cape Town and I’ve always felt right at home in the hospitality industry. My three brothers and I now own boutique hotels in South Africa and on the Seychelle Islands. Life is busy, challenging, exciting and I love what I do. To relax and get away from everything business, I cycle and take part in as many races as possible. And it’s during the challenging Wine to Whales race that I hurt my back and ended up in a tent where a sexy physiotherapist puts her hands on my back.

When and where is the story set?

The story is set in the here and now. When in South Africa, my brothers and I mostly stay in Cape Town and I have just inherited a house in Hermanus, a beautiful coastal town an hour’s drive from Cape Town. We also have two hotels on the Seychelles, on Praslin and one on Mahé. And have I mentioned that the physio, Caitlin Sutherland has rooms in Hermanus?

What should we know about Don?

I love what I do. I love my family. And I love women. It’s just that lately I’ve become a bit wary of them. It seems most of them are only interested in what I own rather than in who I am. This woman, Caitlin, the one I can’t stop thinking about, is probably the same. But I think I want to find out.

What is Don’s goal?

We are talking about plans for a new hotel near the Kruger National Park. But I’m struggling to concentrate on anything lately. Blue eyes. She has gorgeous blue eyes. And her hands … I don’t know whether she always gives a massage like the one I received in her rooms, but I’m a bit freaked out at my reaction. I should stay as far away from her as possible. That’s a goal, right?

What is screwing up Don’s life (main conflict in writerly speak)?

I know I should have stayed away from Caitlin. But of course I haven’t. I’ve taken her on a date, I want to get to know her better. Only to discover she has trust issues. Huge trust issues. And then there is the thing between her sister Hannah and my brother Darryn – just the mention of Hannah’s name gets Darryn all riled up. But he’ll have to sort out his own problems – I have my own.

What is the title?

Touched to the heart. Because that’s what happened when she put her hands on my back for the first time. She not only touched my body, but also my heart.

When can we expect the book to be published?

It was published in July 2014. Touched small cover_Final200

Blurb:

In the gritty underbelly of 1920s Sydney, a fresh-faced country girl is about to arrive in the big, dark city – and risk everything in the pursuit of her dreams.

Sydney is no place for the fainthearted—five shillings for a twist of snow, a woman for not much more, and a bullet if you look sideways at the wrong person.

Dolly Bowman is ready and willing to take on all the brash, bustling city has to offer. After all it is the 1920s, a time for a girl to become a woman and fulfil her dreams. Turning her back on her childhood, she takes up a position working as a housemaid while she searches for her future.

World War I flying ace Jack Dalton knows he’s luckier than most. He’s survived the war with barely a scratch, a couple of astute business decisions have paid off, and he’s set for the high life. But a glimpse of a girl that he had forgotten, from a place he’s tried to escape suddenly sets all his plans awry. Try as he might he can’t shake the past, and money isn’t enough to pay the debts he’s incurred.

Five things to do in Hermanus, South Africa

 

Caitlin, the heroine of Touched to the heart, lives and works in Hermanus, South Africa. Don inherited a house from an uncle of his and he visits Caitlin’s physiotherapy rooms in Hermanus.

Way back when, Hermanus used to be a small fishing village but over the last few of decades it has morphed into a bustling town, bursting at the seams over weekends and holidays.

Futunately, some things haven’t changed and when I thought of possible dates Don could take Caitlin on, these are a few things I think any heroine would enjoy:

  1. Take her to see the Old Harbour
  2. Watch the whales in September
  3. Go for a leisurely lunch to one of the many wine farms in the Hemel and Aarde Valley (Heaven and Earth).
  4. Take her on a hike in the Fernkloof Mountains – a magical place
  5. Take her to watch the waves at Kwaaiwater (angry water) where the waves are enormous and the sound deafening.
