Love Bends and Curves Like Space and Time

Years ago, when I was working in a second-hand book shop, a woman came in seeking a novel. Title? Publisher? Author? She couldn’t remember. ‘It’s all about a man and a woman. They fall in love!’ she announced, indignantly, when I professed bewilderment. I was about to suggest that we began with the Troubadors and proceeded to Anais Nin by way of D.H Lawrence, but by then she’d stomped out,

Katie in Love

Katie in Love – Excerpt It is New Year’s Eve and Katie Boyd has met a stranger at a tartan-themed fancy dress ball and taken him back to her apartment. They kiss… He grabbed me.

Stripped Bare Naked & Female

Excerpt From Katie in Love He stared into my eyes. ‘Katie, will you do something?’ He didn’t say what. He just looked at me and I nodded. ‘Take your top off for me.’ The words came from his mouth like a coil of silver smoke and seemed to hang there as if in tiny cloud. Take your top off for me. It was such a simple sentence. Such a simple

Writing a Novel is Like a Terrible Illness

Writing a novel is like having a terrible illness. Every time you feel as if you are recovering, you have to start a new chapter, get over the setbacks endured by your heroine (you feel her pain) and set her up for more suffering. Conflict is the oil of fiction and in a romance, someone always needs a cuddle. Publishing a novel is often likened to having a baby. It

Katie in Love – review by India Reid

Opening up Chloe Thurlow’s Katie in Love is a lot like slipping into the perfect bath after a long, hard day. It’s the perfect temperature, warm enough to make you sweat. The water is the most gorgeous shade of lavender– no, not lavender, but instead Katie’s signature pink. There are rose petals floating in the water, candles lit all around; the air is deliciously humid, floral with hints of something

What is Love? My 3 Answers

What is love? Poets have been trying to answer the question since the snake slithered through Eden, and it is far easier to work out what love isn’t than what it is. You may enjoy stuffed red peppers. But you don’t love them. You may adore your little black dress. But you are not going to go to bed with your dress – in your dress, maybe; and shoes could
