Thank you!

To all of my amazing readers, thank you so much! I appreciate all of your preorders, all of your reads, and all of your kind words and reviews. I love that you love Polly and Sebastian.

For anyone who hasn't yet read Hope of Romance, it is only 99 cents, and of course free in Kindle Unlimited. The link is below.

I have just returned from a week’s holiday with my family, and it was absolutely lovely. It was exactly what I needed -- some time in the sun, and simple rest and relaxation. Since I began publishing my books, I have never actually taken time off! Until this February, I was working another job so every spare moment was spent writing. Now that I am able to write full time, I am more structured, and so I was able to build in an actual vacation! Yes, I did answer emails and of course check to see how the launch was going, but it was so lovely to simply spend time with my husband, my son, my parents, and, when I had a moment, to actually spend some time reading myself!

Below are some reading recommendations for you, if you are looking for something new. One book is a contemporary read; the rest, historical romance. I would also love to know what else you are enjoying lately -- any classics I should pick up? New favorites?

With love,

Vikings: The Truth about Aslaug and Ragnar

By Rachel Tsoumbakos

Is Aslaug really Ragnar's one true love?

Can she save him from his own prideful death?

Plus, how close can one be to their stepson before questions are asked?

Aslaug was one of Ragnar Lodbrok's wives and bore him many sons. However, prior to meeting him, she spent her childhood locked up in a harp.

Then, when the harp owner was murdered, she was raised by a beastly pair who insisted Aslaug never wash in order to hide her beauty.

Once released from this life of miserable slavery, Aslaug went on to marry Ragnar Lodbrok, the famous Viking. She bore many children to him as well as help raise some of his other children. At times, her relationship with one of her stepchildren was considered questionable as she favoured him over even her own children.

'Vikings: The Truth About Aslaug And Ragnar' will unravel all these secrets and reveal a story that is more interesting than anything you knew about them previously as well as debunking the myth that their relationship was loveless.

Discover the truth today!

Part One brings the whole story to life with a historically accurate novel of their lives. Part Two then examines the historical facts behind this famous Viking couple.

The 'Viking Secrets' series explores the historical fact from present day fiction in regards to the Vikings and the extraordinary women who existed in the Viking era.

PLEASE NOTE: Each of the books in this series can be read as standalone books due to the nature of the sagas involved. Therefore, the book numbering indicates the order in which the stories were published and not the order in which they are required to be read.
