“How would an old-fashioned chap like me convince a cynical modern girl that he can be trusted with her love?” - Beatriz Williams in OVERSEAS

If you follow me on Twitter, you’re probably sick of hearing about OVERSEAS - since I haven’t stopped talking about it. But you guys - it’s FINALLY ON SALE TODAY and I’m so excited to share it with all of you!

Jane at Dear Author very eloquently summarized my love for this novel by saying OVERSEAS is “if Time Travelers Wife wasn’t so tragic and unhappy” sort of book." Read her full review here, where comparisons to FIFTY SHADES OF GREY and TWILIGHT are also made.

If you’re still not convinced, here’s another quote:

“I am not … Kate, you’re rubbish … stop that at once!” His frantic hands manacled mine at last; he flipped me onto my back and held my wrists above my head. “Minx,” he muttered, kissing me. “You’ll pay for that.”

Read more of this excerpt on Beatriz’s site and try not to blush (and get reallllly excited to read more)! Seriously - how can you resist a book that includes an endearment of “minx”!?

Now - go read the book, find your own Julian, and let me know how it goes!

PS I’m not typically a romance reader either, so if that’s why you’re hesitating… just give it a chance!
