To celebrate release of my new novella, Palace of Deception, I’m making my contemporary romance novel The Antique Love *FREE* to download for Kindle for a limited time, from today until 23rd July 2015. I hope you’ll go ahead and download a copy, and enjoy! The Antique Love won an award last year for “Most Romantic Love Scene Ever.” Here are the download links to get your free copy on Amazon US, Amazon UK, Amazon CA, Amazon IN, Amazon AU. (If I’ve missed your country out, please let me know in the comments!)
And here’s the blurb:
One rainy day in London, Wyoming man Kurt Bold walks into an antique shop off the King’s Road and straight into the dreams of its owner, Penny Rosas. Kurt certainly looks every inch the cowboy hero…but he soon brings Penny’s dreams to earth with a thump. His job is in the logical world of finance – and as far as Kurt is concerned, romance is just for dreamers.
But when Kurt hires Penny to help refurbish his Victorian house near Richmond Park, it’s not long before the logical heart he has guarded so carefully is opening up to new emotions, in a most disturbing way…
My heroine, Penny, is passionate about her antiques, and sometimes refuses to sell an article unless it’s to “the right person.” When you think about how treasured some of these antique items were by their former owners, you can understand how Penny has got so attached to them.
I love looking round antique shops, wondering who could have owned the objects, and how they’ve ended up so unloved as to be sold on. Here’s a gallery of photos I made from my local antique shop. Hope you enjoy browsing as much as I did!
And I hope you enjoy your free copy of The Antique Love. If you do download and read it, please come back and tell me what you thought (but only if it’s good, though!) Happy reading!

What gorgeous things, Helena. Thanks for sharing them. That is the flipside isn’t it – how did things you’d think would be handed down in a family end up in a shop, especially the photographs? I remember a few years ago on the Antiques Roadshow there was a woman who had a collection of black and white wedding photos; she didn’t know any of the couples, she’d picked them up in junk/antique shops. They did make a fascinating collection. A story there somewhere!
I think that’s why I love antiques so much, Kate. There’s a story behind all of them. I love programmes like the Antiques Roadshow and Antiques Road Trip. I find that moving, too, what you say about the wedding photos. What a great idea to make a collection, so that they won’t be forgotten. Another type of photo I see often in antique shops is young men in military uniform. I find that incredibly sad.
Thanks for dropping in, and your interesting comment!
What delightful photos of antiques. I love antiques too. The dustier the better. We have several family pieces in our house. Each one of your photos could be a wonderful writing prompt. I’ll add the Antique Love is FREE to your guest blog post.
We have a few family pieces, too, JQ. They’re nothing valuable – my family weren’t wealthy – but they mean a lot personally. I have a china tea set that belonged to my grandma, for example. She loved to play cards with her friends, and would get the tea set out especially :) Thanks so much for adding the news about my free book to my post with you. I appreciate it. Thanks for dropping in!

I loved The Antique Love, Helena, and I love browsing in antique shops. Fabulous selection in the photos!
I have to ration myself on spending when I go in antique shops, Rosemary. I always see so much I like. Thanks very much for your kind words about The Antique Love!
