About the Novel

Dear Reader,

This is a romance novel with an over the top plot and the requisite 2.3 sex scenes. Many critics will describe this book as a bodice ripper. Or call it chic lit. If you are looking for a rollicking good time, you have come to the right place. If you are searching for squeaky clean, high fallutin’ and uplifting fiction, then please move on.

I wrote Irrestistible Attraction in 1999. On the strength of its writing I acquired a New York agent, who sent it to six publishing houses. While the reviews were favorable, the novel wasn’t deemed “novel” enough for publication, especially by an unknown author. I was encouraged to write a second book, which I did. But then life intervened . . . and I had to work full time.

Until now, the book has languished in relative obscurity inside the hard drive of my computer, read by only a handful of people. I am dusting it off and presenting it to you one chapter at a time.

Irresistible Attraction will be published chapter by chapter over the next year or so. I hope you’ll enjoy the story of the reticent Earl of Cavendish and the strong-willed Amanda Sinclair. If you do not like my book, then please move on. If you like the story, please share this URL with your friends.

  1. I was happy to have “stumbled” upon your writing. Tonight I read through Chapter Three, and had hoped to read further. Alas, it was not to be. Only a few sentences of the next chapter were available.

    When will the next chapter appear online?

  2. Hi Evelyn,

    When you see just a few sentences, you have reached the archives. Click on […] at the end of the sentence. This should take you to the post.
