Skeletons in the Cupboard? A Man For All Seasons giveaway!

Today we invited Queensland Australia author Jenny Brigalow and she came with secrets and a Giveaway!

Bio.
Born in Britain, I arrived in Australia as a young woman in 1985 for an impromptu holiday and never left. I fell in love with the Australian bush, its unique flora and fauna and the colourful personalities that inhabit the country. I live on a small acreage close to Toowoomba with my family, dogs, cats and ponies.
I love to write. I write rural romance, young adult and, more recently, literary fiction. When I'm not writing, I'm reading, walking or riding my Connemara pony, Romeo. Rural romance is a natural extension of my passion for all things country. I believe that romance is the universal language of love. And besides, I'm a sucker for a happy ending.

Secrets 
 
They enthral, frustrate and frighten. Most people have one or two. The brilliant Charlotte Bronte knew a thing or two about secrets. I can't recall how many times I've enjoyed Jane Eyre. But always I am drawn in by the irresistible clinking of skeletons  in the cupboard. Secrets shape our lives. And Chad Cherub and Seraphim Driscoll are no exception.  Secrets of the past whisper softly between the lines of  A Man For All Seasons. Like Jane, these lovers must break through the secrets that haunt them to set their love free.
 
Do you hold powerful secrets? Do they hold the power to change someone's life? Something drastic? We will be giving away one kindle copy of A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS to one lucky commenter!



 

When successful rodeo rider and racehorse trainer Chad Cherub steps off the plane at Heathrow, love is the last thing on his mind. He’s travelled from Australia to do a business deal with the wealthy entrepreneur and racehorse fanatic, Walter Driscoll. However, he soon finds himself distracted by Wally’s gorgeous daughter, Seraphim.

Sweet, spoiled Seraphim, a gifted dressage rider, is also distracted. Engaged to the eminently suitable Barry Wellington-Worth, the arrival of cool, confident Chad forces her to re-examine her life. When she discovers the devastating truth that she does not love Barry, and learns that Chad’s cook has been injured, Seraphim jumps at the chance to take up the position on his remote property and escape the confines of her English life.
In the great dust bowl of the Australian Outback the couple find they have more in common than horses. Their love blooms as they work hard to start a new life together. But Seraphim’s family, and the past, threatens to tear them apart. It is only when the truth is laid bare that the barriers are broken down.

  1. What a fun premise. The idea of trying to escape an unahppy existence and head down under? In a flash!

    1. I'm sure your move from England to Australia made it easier to write the premise and make both places come alive. Good luck, Jenny.

    2. Hello there Theresa. Lovely to meet you. Yes, you are right, I think many of my own experiences are enmeshed in this story. I'm very lucky to have experienced two such contrasting landscapes.

  4. Hi Imogene, thanks for popping in. So glad you like the names. Must confess that I adore Chad and Seraphim, not real angels I know, but pretty good people all the same.

  5. I love the premise of this - rich spoiled girl as outback cook! There's a lot of inherent conflict there. It sounds like the book will be filled with great details from your own life (like Australia and riding). Wishing you wonderful success! :-)

    1. Hi Lexa, lovely to hear from you. I did write a post to you, but I don't see it, so I'll have another go. Yes, there are elements of my own life here, but I must confess that I'm not a good cook, and Seraphim rides a whole heap better than I do. Still, a girl can dream...

  6. I tend to be a mostly open book - not too many secrets here :)

    PS - don't enter me in the contest as I already have a copy of Jenny's great book!

  10. Hi Sherry, thanks for dropping by. I do love a happy ending, even if it's only a "for now". I'm just a hopeless romantic, but I suspect I'm not alone there.

  12. Hi Shelley, lovely to meet you. I just love my Connemara ponies, Romeo and Tango. When I was young and brave I rode the Thoroughbreds. They are a splendid breed. I still love to watch them run. Have a great day.
