The new year has started off fast and furious and I'm a little behind in all-things-blogging related.
So, I am very happy to have Susanne Bellamy featured today, with her newest release in the Emerald Quest series: Winning the Heiress' Heart. The title alone makes this book an instant buy for me, as well as the fact it is by Susanne, who is talented as well as a wonderful person. Here's bit about the book to further tempt your reading desires:
Brand new state, fabulous opportunities, fresh start.
Eva Abbott has little choice but to sell her beloved home, Bellerose Manor, in England after a second round of death duties make it impossible to maintain. Besides, she is now guardian to her seventeen-year-old nephew, Sebastian, and she is desperate to give him a fresh start.
Hawaii in 1960 was learning that its position as the 50th state brought new tourism opportunities that far-sighted people like Luc Martineau saw and grabbed! Eva and Luc lock horns over their adjoining pineapple plantations, a lucrative tourism contract, and even over Seb.
As if raising a fearless teenager still grieving for his father isn’t enough, Eva becomes a target for someone who seems to think she possesses a centuries-old emerald and diamond necklace last seen around the neck of her ancestress, Josephine du Bois. Someone is going to extraordinary lengths to find the treasure.
Is Luc an ally or an enemy? Is he after Eva or her land?
“Winning the Heiress” is book 3 in The Emerald Quest series. It can be read as a standalone book, as well as part of the series.

Susanne is an Australian author of contemporary and suspense romances set in exciting and often exotic locations. Her heroes have to be pretty special to live up to the real life one she married. He saved her life then married her. They live on the edge of bush land on a mountain in beautiful sunny Queensland, Australia with two children and their dog.
Paris will always be one of her top spots, and she fell in love with Scotland when they visited the west coast (nothing to do with fine single malts!), and recently had her first real trip to Italy--tick off one Bucket List item! She has enjoyed New Year in Kathmandu and trekked in the Annapurnas, sailed in Ha Long Bay on a junk, and stayed on a floating hotel beside a tethered elephant in Thailand. The Peak in Hong Kong and Mt Faber cable car ride in Singapore are favourite spots. Susanne loves travelling to new places and exploring the culture and history, and meeting new people. These experiences are gradually being incorporated into her stories. Her as yet unrealised dream is a trip into Earth’s orbit.
Susanne is a member of RWA and enjoys mentoring new authors. She is published with Emerald Romance, Escape Publishing, and will be a 2015 release author with Entangled Publishing.
