About the Author
I write sexy heroes, sassy heroines & happy ever afters...Growing up in locations like Botswana and Venezuela gave me quite the taste for adventure and my love for romances began when my mother shoved one into my hands in a desperate attempt to keep me quiet!
I live in leafy Surrey in the UK, a book-devouring, slightly melodramatic, romance-writing heroine with my very own sexy hero husband!

'The Love List' is a story of contrasts; humour and sadness, business and pleasure, passion and hatred all interwoven to produce a lovely romantic story with a contemporary edge. Nora King's life is the family company she now runs. It takes all her time and occupies all her thoughts, conveniently allowing her to park her grief for the loss of her father at the bottom of her to do list. The only non business luxury she allows herself is shoes and one particular pair walk her into romance with the larger than life Ethan who takes his role as trouble shooter both in his business and personal life very seriously. Nora is a witty, geeky woman who hides behind her business attire to avoid emotional upheaval. Her feminine obsession with shoes is the only snippet of the true Nora she allows to surface. Ethan is a man of action who constantly uses his adventurous streak to help other in disaster situations. This 'hands on' help is a kick back to his childhood and parents who were money rich but emotionally poor when it came to their offspring. The romance is tender and charming and as it progresses you realise the lovers have more in common than fiery passion. The ending is poignant as befits such an engaging romantic story. I received a copy from Harper Impulse via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
The Love List by new to me author is a charming and humorous story about an independent woman who has no time for love, but find her life derailed by it anyway. Right before she is set to give the biggest presentation of her career, Nora King super-glues her shoe to her hand and there is nobody who can help her except the gorgeous Ethan Love, whose brother broke her sister’s heart many years ago. I really liked Nora and Ethan and found them easy to relate to. I thought their individual personalities set them far apart from one another but drew them together, complementing each other perfectly. The chemistry between them is felt instantly, though Nora tries her hardest to fight it. Her focus is on the company she inherited from her father and she has not time or room in her life for any distractions. I love these kinds of stories when the heroine is so deep in her head, she doesn’t see love coming. It’s always entertaining to watch her get knocked down a peg or two when it hits. I thought Ethan was an amazing character. He carries an enormous amount of guilt from the horrors of natural disasters he has been deployed to assist with. I really liked how the author writes him as a very strong character, but you see the pain and compassion below the surface. He has a natural ease with people that draws them in with interest in what he has to say or what he will do and I found myself riveted to what he would do or say next. Overall, I found The Love List an enjoyable read with the right blend of humor mixed in. I recommend this story if you enjoy seeing strong willed characters get bowled over when love comes calling.

A very good story that will make you laugh and cry. An enjoyable read.
Who wants a "career" woman who can't multi-task; can't run a business without her father ... her brother ... or a handsome male stranger who knows nothing about her business? Oh please. Women like this are embarrassing. There's nothing romantic about being inherently broken. Couldn't get past the first chapters ...
