Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
Trade Winds by Christina Courtenay
Marriage of convenience or a love for life? It's 1732 in Gothenburg, Sweden, and strong-willed Jess van Sandt knows only too well that it s a man's world. She believes she's being swindled out of her inheritance by her stepfather and she's determined to stop it. When help appears in the unlikely form of handsome Scotsman Killian Kinross, himself disinherited by his grandfather, Jess finds herself both intrigued and infuriated by him. In an attempt to recover her fortune, she proposes a marriage of convenience. Then Killian is offered the chance of a lifetime with the Swedish East India Company's Expedition and he's determined that nothing will stand in his way, not even his new bride. He sets sail on a daring voyage to the Far East, believing he's put his feelings and past behind him. But the journey doesn't quite work out as he expects...
Awarded Four stars in a review in News of The World Sunday 3rd October 2010.
“In Trade Winds Courtenay has created a well-researched background for the romance, which has some raunchy scenes thrown in. And as the weather starts to turn here, it's a good book to snuggle up inside with.” News of the World
‘A lush setting, vivid characters and a wonderful romance make this a delicious treat.’
“It was three years ago when I first encountered Choc Lit Publishing and since then I've been consistently impressed by the standard of the books they publish”.
