Honor's Debt from Noelle Clark

New from fabulous Noelle Clark, author of Rosamanti and Let Angels Fly, comes the much anticipated series, Robinhill Farm.

Book #1 Honor's Debt is OUT NOW from Secret Cravings Publishing. Isn't this a gorgeous cover?


Here's what it's all about:

On a quest to make amends for a long-ago indiscretion, Honor unexpectedly discovers the one thing she’s been missing in her life.






Honor Quirk arrives in Ireland excited—and a bit anxious—about meeting up with the estranged family of her late great-grandmother. The welcome from the residents of Robinhill Farm, Dermot and Bryan, is confusing and far from comforting. One is warm, the other aggressive. The outwardly antagonistic Bryan makes it very clear he doesn't want her there, branding her a gold digger.
Dermot, on the other hand, is delighted to meet her.
But Honor is no pushover and stands up to Bryan, letting him know that his bad attitude and trail of baggage have nothing to do with her. Despite their confrontational and hostile relationship, an undeniable attraction to each other creeps insidiously into the house on Robinhill Farm. They both desperately try to stifle the sparks, but living under the same roof makes it impossible. Unable to cope with the turmoil of living with Bryan, Honor runs away, straight into the arms of a charming newfound friend, Sean, who offers her a home—and love.

Shattered, Bryan finally takes control of his irrational belief that all women are evil, and fights to bring back the woman he loves. But is it too late?


~Excerpt~
 “Now, then.” His gaze settled on her, a confused expression on his face. “Are you feeling better?”
She nodded. It was inevitable that now he was ready for her to explain why she was here.
“Honor, I don’t flatter myself to think that you’ve suddenly decided that you’re madly in love with me and came here to bonk my brains out.” He paused as if he waited for a reaction. “So I’m assuming, from your very…emotional state…that you are running away. From what—or who—is a complete mystery to me.”
She cupped her hands around the mug of tea and bit her lip.
“Of course, I may be totally wrong. If you did come here to bonk my brains out, I am very, very, happy.”
She glanced up and caught the twinkle in his lovely, green eyes. Despite her current state, she could not stifle the smile that twitched at the corners of her mouth. With a rush of affection, she pushed her chair back, and came around the table towards him. His chair scraped across the floor as he stood up, and they hugged.
After a minute, she pulled back and looked up at him. “Sean, you are…a very lovely man.” Her voice cracked.
“But…?” He raised one eyebrow.
“But…” She took a deep breath. “Appealing as it sounds, I didn’t come here to bonk you silly.”
His exaggerated expression of disappointment caused a small bubbling laugh to burst from her.
“I…need some time away from Robinhill Farm. I’m wondering if I could…”
He grabbed her and lifted her off the floor and spun round and round in the small kitchen.
“Yes! Yes! A thousand times, yes!”
“It’s just for a week or two. I’ll cook for you. Clean for you. Help you with the sheep.”
“And you’ll have lashings of unbridled sex with me too, won’t ye?”
Her laugh rang out, and her affection for Sean made her heart swell. She reached up and kissed his cheek. Sean was so uncomplicated. And so…unrelated. It certainly was a tempting proposition.
“Hm, I’ll think about it.”

    1. The weather here is crazy. With the water being still warm in the lakes and cold dry air coming down from the North Pole, t makes for a lot of snow depending on where you live, but luckily today it is...raining, lol. Which means for a lot of gross cold, slush. Brr. Thanks for making the trip! xx
