Category novels were my first foray into romance, and I take great joy in pressing pause on my normal life and slipping back into a world of princesses and billionaires, playboys and rogues.
Annie West’s novel Revelations of a Secret Princess was like diving into a chocolate mug cake; sweet, familiar and so easy to enjoy. Heroine Caro Rivage keeps her cards close to her chest when she applies for a nanny’s position in an isolate alpine castle, and although her prospective employer, Jake Maynard is suspicious, he can’t deny the bond she forms with his newly-orphaned niece Ariane. Secrets, lies and family ties come into play, with well written characters, a fast-paced storyline and powerful enemies. I was still thinking about the hero and heroine after I’d finished reading the final page! Revelations of a Secret Princess is a March release with Mills & Boon ‘Presents’.
As well as being a USA Today Bestselling and RuBy award-winning author, Annie West is my first blog guest to have a Japanese Manga comic created from one of her novels. With over fifty titles and six million books sales (!!!) under her belt, Annie also has so many great articles on writing craft that I lost an hour down an Annie West-sized rabbit hole when I was browsing her website. Annie lives in Lake Macquarie with her family, and relishes the easy access to her favourite things – good wine, bushwalking tracks and the ocean. When she’s not reading and writing, Annie helps care for her elderly relatives. Prior to becoming an author, Annie spent a diverse career in the public sector, including stints working at a university, in the Federal Police and in parliament house.
