BTW - I'm introducing myself as Beverley Oakley at the Hot Down Under site together with my fabulous 13 fellow authors whose upcoming titles will be released by Pan Macmillan Momentum in November, December and January.
I'm also at Manic Readers discussing managing risk and taking care are school holidays are upon me and so is the pressure to finalise revisions for A Little Deception. (There's also an extract there.)
Anyway, the intrigue is so multi-layered that it's a huge task to stay on top of how much the innocent heroine knows as opposed to the sister-in-law and her lover who've gone to such lengths to blacken her name, as opposed to the heroine and sister-in-law's grasping cousin who's been lured into the scheme with the promise of sexual favours as opposed to the hero who must sort all this out before realising the wife who deceived him into marriage is innocent of all but loving him. (Sigh....)
No, there are no spoilers here. It's all in the intrigue and the sexual tension - and getting it all just right. The book was published in hard cover two years ago but I'd had to cut 15,000 words and a plot tangent to fulfil the publisher's word count. Now I can add that necessary extra layer.
It should have been on Amazon a week ago and it definitely will have to be before I go camping next week! I've made too many promises and this is one I just have to keep.
