I’m delighted to say that Love at First Hate, my 3rd Porthkennack novel, is out today. To celebrate, I’m going on a blog tour, which kicks off at The Novel Approach, where I’m talking about names – and specifically, bad ones. Why not pop on over and enter the giveaway?
Love at First Hate
A Porthkennack Novel
First impressions can doom second chances
Bran Roscarrock has been living in the closet all his life. As heir to an expansive family legacy in the town of Porthkennack, old-fashioned ideals of respectability and duty were drummed into him since childhood, and he’s never dared to live—or love—openly.
Sam Ferreira, an old friend of Bran’s brother Jory, is a disgraced academic desperate to leave his dead-end job. When Jory asks him to take over as curator of a planned exhibition on Edward of Woodstock, the fourteenth-century Black Prince, Sam leaps at the chance to do what he loves and make a fresh start.
But Bran’s funding the exhibition, and though sparks fly between the two men, they’re not all happy ones. Bran idolises Prince Edward as a hero, while Sam’s determined to present a balanced picture. With neither of them prepared to give ground, a hundred years of war seems all too possible. And if Bran finds out about Sam’s past, his future may not be bright, and their budding romance may be lost to history.

The writing is superb, the characters are memorable (two characters who found redemption after being some of the least liked people going), history made lively, vivid, and incredibly important in how its presented, and a whole HEA that made my heart sing – Melanie M, Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words
