Reading is, and always has been, the first love of Liz Fielding's life. Except writing.
Success came early; Liz was twelve when she won an Easter egg in a hymn writing competition at school but life intervened with her plans to become a hotshot author—she got a day job. Not that this was dull.
Liz went to Zambia at the age of twenty where she worked as a secretary, before following her personal hero to the Middle East, Kenya and Botswana, and ambition became buried in the joyful business of raising a family.
Liz never forgot that she was a writer, however and she wrote magazine articles, ghost stories and children's stories for BBC Radio. She was at a point where she wanted to move onto something bigger when she read a magazine piece about Charlotte Lamb and Anne Hampson and discovered, rather late in life, romantic fiction. She then read everything she could lay her hands on, and feeling certain she had a grasp of the genre, began writing. There were three rejections — she still has those letters!— before her fourth attempt, An Image of You, was published by Harlequin in 1992.
Liz has been nominated seven times for RWA's RITA award; The Best Man & The Bridesmaid took the prize in 2001. A Family of His Own won the RNA's Romance Prize, and was also named Reviewers' Choice Best Harlequin Romance by Romantic Times BOOKreviews in 2005. A Marriage Miracle took the Short Contemporary RITA in 2006.
These days, Liz, an empty-nester, lives in the English countryside with Stonehenge to the south, Glastonbury to the east and the wonderful Regency city of Bath to the north. Once the door to her writing eyrie (from where she can see the Westbury white horse carved into the distance hills) is closed behind her, however, Liz can be anywhere her imagination takes her. The desert kingdom of Ramal Hamrah, the villages of Upper Haughton, Little Hinton and Longbourne (where romance is always just around the corner) New York, the Mediterranean and even the Himalayas. All you have to do is pick up a book and follow her.

Joshua Kent infuriated Holly. He was cavalier, arrogant - that's long hand for just plain rude - and convinced she was a good-for-nothing gold-digger. Bad enough. Far worse was his bombshell that her past was a complete fabrication.
