This whole book just brought a massive smile to my face.

I do love a good historical romance and I very much enjoyed this one set during the horrors of the First World War.
Thank you, Mirrigold! Read the review at Mirrigold’s blog.
Reading this book was like sitting down with a dish of rich, chocolate ice cream–at the same time decadently rich, but imminently satisfying.

I’m really pleased today to welcome Tora Williams on my blog. We’ve known each other since meeting a few years ago at Romantic Novelists’ Association meet-ups, and in that time we’ve seen each other go from would-be authors to published authors.
Tora’s debut novel Bound to Her Blood Enemy is available to pre-order now on Kindle now, and will be published on 25th June 2018.
Over to you, Tora…
When I was a child I was always making up stories in my head (others might call it daydreaming!) and I wanted to be an author. But real life got in the way and I only started writing seriously in about 2010. I soon realised that I was obsessed with providing my characters with happy-ever-afters, so I focused on writing romance. In 2013 I was lucky enough to get a place on the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s New Writers’ Scheme. As part of the scheme I was able to submit a manuscript every year for assessment, and the feedback I got really helped me improve. The support from friends I’ve made through the RNA has also been invaluable, and they kept me going each time I got a rejection. Then in January 2018 I finally got the longed-for email from The Wild Rose Press saying they’d love to publish Bound to Her Blood Enemy.
The Captain and the Cavalry Trooper is a well written tale of historical love with intriguing characters, both main and secondary, filled to the brim with romance, drama, lust, desire, and enemies.
Many thanks for the lovely review!

Music threads it way through The Captain and the Cavalry Trooper, from folk to opera, with music hall and a hymn in between.
A classic folk song, “The Raggle Taggle Gypsy” is about a grand lady turning her back on her wealthy husband for the freedom of roaming with the Romanies. The song is ancient, with variations across the British Isles; yours truly used to sing it at school and was captivated by its story and its melody. The version below is performed by The Chieftains, with a wonderful animation by Veronica Dolcich.
An absolute wow! This is my second book from Catherine and Eleanor and I’m absolutely blown away. I’ve been looking forward to this title for a while and it didn’t disappoint!

At many points in the story I was reminded of classic romance novels like Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice: here we find the same sternly brooding hero, paired with a meeker, but still sharply intelligent, partner…. Lovers of historical sweet romance, with some loving, consensual sex (including a bit of light S&M) will fall for this book as deeply as the main characters did for each other!
Many thanks to Steph for her fab review of The Captain and the Cavalry Trooper on her Bookshine and Readbows blog.
It is astoundingly touching and beautifully portrayed. There is heartache, tender romance and danger all wrapped up in a brilliant story from an era that really doesn’t get show cased enough in Historical Romance.
Many thanks to Frankie for her lovely review of The Captain and the Cavalry Trooper on her Chicks, Rogues and Scandals blog.
