Feature on Rachael Thomas, From One Night To Wife #Giveaway

This week's Feature on Author is on UK based author Rachael Thomas. And there's a Kindle copy giveaway of her latest release From One Night To Wife to one commenter! 

I grew up in the Midlands, but when I moved to Wales, over twenty years ago, I found a place to finally put down roots. I married into a farming family and embarked on a massive learning curve which also saw me learning Welsh when my two children were small.
Writing is something I have always wanted to do and I can still remember the thrill of one of my short stories being held up as an example to the class when I was about nine. It wasn’t until my own children were in school that I seriously started to pursue my dream. I joined a local writing group which met every Monday afternoon and being with like-minded people was the boost I needed.

Reading romance had always been my first love, and just about every short story I wrote was romance, so I decided to write my first book. During that process I also attended my first weekend writing course with Kate Walker and joined the RNA’s fabulous New Writers’ Scheme. A short time later I joined Romance Writers of Australia and learnt a lot from entering their competitions. I sought out courses and you can imagine my joy when I discovered Sharon Kendrick’s course in beautiful Tuscany.

Behind the Scandalous Fa├žade, my So You Think You Can Write entry, is my thirteenth book and although only eight have those magic words ‘the end’ written on them the others are definitely part of the learning process I have enjoyed over the last six years.

I love escaping to distant shores with my characters, entering their glamorous world and feeling all the emotions they experience as they discover their love for one another. A love so strong it will overcome all obstacles eventually, leading to that promised happy ever after.

Who was Serena James?

Serena James is a travel writer who has enjoyed two fabulous weeks on the Greek island of Santorini. What’s not to enjoy when a holiday romance with local fisherman Nikos Petrakis was part of that holiday?

Did she make a mistake in her dealings with Nikos?

She certainly did. She fell for his charm and good looks, believing he was the man she’d always waited for. Unfortunately she also fell for his lies about his job as a fisherman on the island.

How did one night lead to marriage?

Her last night on Santorini should have been about saying goodbye, but passion carried them away and now there are consequences. They are so far reaching that three months later as she is boarding a plane back to Santorini to see Nikos she discovers that she isn’t the only one with a story to tell.

One Night To Wife
A souvenir from her Greek affair! 

Three months ago, journalist Serena James had her heart broken by a man she'll never forget, especially not the fury in his eyes the night they parted. Now she's back in Santorini to tell him that their summer fling had unexpected repercussions…
Mogul Nikos Petrakis is on the verge of a deal that will make him even more powerful. He doesn't need any distraction—especially not a sexy redhead whose curves beg to be touched! But now that she's carrying his heir, Nikos is forced to make a decision.

It's time to make Serena his wife!

When one night…leads to pregnancy!
