It would seem that the revisions I had completed for book 2 in my Romance in War series “Dragoon Serenade” have paid off. Although I had wanted to keep this series as “sweet” romances, where sex remained behind closed doors, it has proved to be no longer a viable option.
Since the revisions I recently carried out, the story was sensual enough to be offered to Luminosity Publishing. This is the comments I received along with their offer of a contract for the story:
I loved the plot in this story. It held my interest, and I read the whole book in one session. The writing is very good. I am sure readers will love it as much as me.
Luminosity Publishing have set a projected a release date of October 2017 for the e-book.
They will combine Books 1 and 2 into a paperback version to be released hopefully by November 2017.
Also as Dawné Dominique has created such fantastic covers for “The Sword and the Rose” series Luminosity has agreed for me to approach Dusktildawn Designs to create a cover.
Needlesstosay, I am over the moon that this latest story is soon to be released.

I’m pleased to introduce Sensual Liaisons: The Sword and the Rose Collection which is to be a paperback consisting of books 2, 3, and 4 of The Sword and the Rose Series.
So that these three great e-books can be available in print, Luminosity Publishing has incorporated them into a paperback.
The book is due for release on 15th April 2017 and can be purchased through the usual distributor channels such as Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, and Luminosity Publishing’s own website.
Although there had been plans for three more books in the series it was decided that it was time to end the Spanish 17th century saga after book 4.
I will now concentrate on my “Romance in War” series comprising of different stories set during World War II.
Book 1 – Letter from a Stranger is set in London during the Blitz was published by Luminosity Publishing in June 2015 and is available on Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble.
Book 2 – Dragoon Serenade is set in the south of France during the three weeks leading up to the Allied invasion of Operation Dragoon on 15th August 1944. Although this book is completed it is currently awaiting publication.
Book 3 – Balor’s Landing is set on the tiny island of Toraigh [Tory] off the Irish coast of county Donegal starting in September 1944. This book is my current work in progress, with four more books planned after this one.
In addition I am considering starting other adventures with new characters set during the 18th century but at this stage I won’t give anything away as to where and when those characters will emerge.
What a great way to start 2017…
I have today signed a three-year worldwide publishing contract with Luminosity Publishing for Book 4 in the Sword and the Rose Series – Lady of Seville.
The projected release date is set for March 2017.
The book will be released in a paperback version the following month in conjunction with books 2 and 3 of the series.
I had planned at least three more books in this series over the next two years, but I have since decided to defer these for some time in the future.
Although I will miss the characters I have grown to love, I feel the time has come to leave them alone for a while and move on to another time and location in history.
Meanwhile though I am ecstatic that Luminosity Publishing has confidence in me and my writings, and I look forward to our continuing association.
Finally, I would like to thank Dawné Dominique at Dusktildawn Designs for creating yet another masterpiece for me. The cover for “Lady of Seville” is gorgeous and describes the storyline beautifully.
With The Sword and the Rose Book 1 released eight days ago as an e-book, Luminosity Publishing provided me with two new three-year worldwide publishing contracts for books 2 and 3 of The Sword and the Rose series.
Embrace Amidst Orange Blossoms is scheduled for release as an e-book in October 2016, and in November this year Passionate Harvest is to be also released as an e-book.
As books have to be greater than 35,000 words to appear in paperback, and books 2 and 3 are under this threshold, Luminosity Publishing has agreed to combine both books under one cover to enable the stories to be available in print.

Meanwhile I have begun writing book 4 – Lady of Seville, and today I drafted out the plan for book 5. Although I have thought of a title for the latter I’m not going to announce it just yet as this might change.
There will be at least two more books after these in the series, but whether I’ll stop and move on to something else will depend on how popular The Sword and the Rose series becomes.
I will let you know as soon as I am given the dates of the print versions for books 1 to 3.
