Here's a neat resource for both readers and authors of romantic fiction. You get interviews, teasers and peeks at first chapters. A good way to decide if you want to give a different author a try.
Check out their website at http://www.affairedecoeur.com/. There's a teaser up there for my novel, A Class Apart, and you get to read the chapter where the hero and heroine, at loggerheads, share an expensive meal in a flashy French restaurant. The heroine desperately needs to sweet talk him into funding her business venture but can't seem to help picking fights with him. Go figure!
I'm dashing off now. Flying back to London overnight and thence to the Isle of Wight to visit my aging mother.
