Dear Lesfic Fan,
Today’s newsletter doesn’t include any new releases, but to celebrate the two-year bookiversary of The Village Romance Series, Harper Bliss, Clare Lydon, and I (TB) have dropped the prices of the books to $2.99 each. That means you can get the entire trilogy for a little less than 9 bucks. Normally, it costs 24 smackeroos.
It’s hard to believe two years have passed since we got together in the Cotswolds to create our small English village universe. The three of us traveled together in a van (hard to get more lesbian than that!), and I documented the trip here, here, here, and here.
Snap up these great bargains, and travel with us to the utterly delightful village of Upper Chewford.
One English village, three charming romances. Read the lesfic trilogy that’s the talk of the summer!
A SHOT AT LOVE: BOOK 1
Josie Adams had a brilliant speechwriting career in American politics—until a scandal destroyed everything. Unsure what to do with the rest of her life, she moves home with her mother in the Cotswolds.
Journalist Harriet Powell ditched London after getting sacked and divorced within six months of each other. She hopes to find peace in the village, but after meeting Josie, Harry’s world will never be the same.
While the two don’t see eye to eye on the professional front, it’s hard to deny their connection, even if Josie’s mum is determined to set Josie up with anyone who isn’t Harry.
Can the two conquer their personal and professional struggles to let the other in?
A TASTE OF LOVE: BOOK 2
Single since forever, Natalie Hill has all but given up on love. She’s convinced herself and everyone else she wants a quiet life. But if a tall, dark and gorgeous stranger turned up on her doorstep, her plans might change…
Enter Ellie Knap, who’s jump-starting her life in the Cotswolds after bailing on her relationship and her career. Her plan? To open an ice cream shop and melt into the village.
When the two meet it’s far from love at first sight, but then slowly, they become friends. Then one night, on a moonlit bridge, everything changes… But can Ellie pack up her old life in time to embrace the new? And can Natalie hold on tight when her quiet life suddenly gets deafeningly loud?
A LESSON IN LOVE: BOOK 3
Helen Swift is almost fifty and tired of her day job as a professor at Oxford University. She prefers to write cozy mysteries under a well-hidden pen name in her Cotswolds cottage. She’s also far too busy to even consider romance.
Posh girl, Victoria ‘Rory’ Carlisle, is over the moon when she snags Helen as her DPhil supervisor, and not only because of Professor Swift’s academic prowess. Rory takes an instant shine to Helen, who is far from charmed by Rory’s advances.
Can Rory make a dent in the wall that Helen has built around herself? And does Helen even have the time for such an inappropriate romance?
The regular format of the IHL newsletter will return on July 20th.
