FROM ONE NIGHT TO WIFE - The New Read from Rachael Thomas

MBB is happy to welcome Rachael Thomas today. Rachael Thomas writes emotional and compelling romances which keep the reader engaged until the last page is turned. Rachael very kindly agreed to answer my questions and the result is a very readable interview indeed....

Rachael do you write when the muse strikes, or do you keep to a disciplined regime and write daily?
I’ve always fitted my writing in around the daily life of the farm and now that I’m published, nothing has changed. I don’t wait for the muse to strike; instead I sit at my computer and go in search of it. Sometimes it resists, so I resort to good old-fashioned pencil and paper until I’ve found it again. When I’m writing a book, I set myself a daily word count target and my own deadline. It works most of the time!

What's your best piece of advice for a new writer?
To never give up on your dreams, always believe in yourself as a writer and write something every day – even if it’s only a few sentences.

Please give us a tweet-sized summary of the plot of your latest book.
Forced together by the consequences of one night Nikos and Serena overcome past hurt and find their HEA.

What inspired you to write it?
 I actually was lucky enough to go to one of the Greek Islands a few years ago and loved it so much I knew I had to set a story against the backdrop of the beautiful island of Santorini and the allure of Athens. I had to wait a while before my Greek hero showed up and when he did, he didn’t disappoint. Serena, more than a match for Nikos, completed the picture.

What's next on your agenda?
I have just finished writing a book and it is with my editor now, so I’m about to start planning my next book. A time when my desk becomes covered in scribbled notes and the possibilities are endless.


A souvenir from her Greek affair! 

Three months ago, journalist Serena James had her heart broken by a man she'll never forget, especially not the fury in his eyes the night they parted. Now she's back in Santorini to tell him that their summer fling had unexpected repercussions…

Mogul Nikos Petrakis is on the verge of a deal that will make him even more powerful. He doesn't need any distraction—especially not a sexy redhead whose curves beg to be touched! But now that she's carrying his heir, Nikos is forced to make a decision.

It's time to make Serena his wife!

When one night…leads to pregnancy!

  4. You sound very disciplined, Rachel. I do write most days, but all too often I don't bother.

    1. If I feel like that I tell myself 'just a sentence' and it works, because I usually find I want to write at least a few more. Thanks Patsy.

Review - 1857 Dust of Ages - The Forgotten Tale by Vandana Shanker

This has to be the first review on MBB in a very long time and it was well worth the wait. Anyone who likes Indian historical fiction is going to adore this beautiful read.

Maria Perry Mohan's Review of 1857 Dust of AgesVolume I -  A Forgotten Tale by Vandana Shankar

As historical fiction goes, this is first class. We’re literally getting glimpses of a fascinating story as seen through the eyes of today. Can it really be that an Indian royal family gave their daughter in marriage to a British Army officer?  Some say it could be impossible, but has the truth been covered up? And why?
Those glances back in time show teasing glimpses of a royal family at a crossroads. The queen’s consternation when a male hair has not been born and her greedy sister-in-law, the one who has a son, eyes up the kingdom. Would such a queen mother be good for a kingdom? Probably not.

The princess’s character comes through as a girl who has been born to lead her kingdom. The 19th century produced one of the gr…
