An Innocent Abroad is a coming of age story set on the Amalfi coast of Italy in the early 1920s.

Ingénue Isobel Harrington, fresh from finishing school in the summer of 1922, experiences a sexual awakening during a visit to Italy's Amalfi Coast.

Sent to visit distant relatives in the hope she will ensnare a wealthy and aristocratic English husband, Isobel falls instead under the spell of enigmatic local, Stefano.

Is their forbidden romance destined to be nothing more than a holiday affair, or will Isobel be brave enough to defy convention and her parents' expectations to follow her dreams?

"A delicious historical romance that transported me to the citrus groves of Positano and made me long for the cocktail hour to be reinstated. Marvellous." - author Rachel Lyndhurst

Dear Julia is available exclusively through Amazon.

Rosalie Stanton is a city girl who loves parties and ‘fixing’ people. When she finds a long-lost love letter in a house she’s redecorating she sets off on a quest to find its rightful owner.

Commander William Cavendish has lived as a recluse since his return from the Great War. His peaceful existence is shattered by the return of the letter that once held all his hopes — and by its bearer, the irrepressible Rosalie, who bears an uncanny resemblance to his lost love.

Rosalie is just as determined to fix William and re-introduce him into society as he is determined to resist her. They both might have met their match.

"The writing is as airy and bright as Rosalie herself. The characters are drawn with the sure strokes of an accomplished author. And the ending is as satisfying as any I’ve read. Dear Julia will wedge itself into your heart." Storm Goddess Reviews
