I'm still waiting for the blurb from my editor but here's a bit about the story-
This was a difficult book to write- ex-army medic Adam has got PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), he doesn't want love, right? He just wants to be left alone.
Enter seriously fun Skye who just wants to spread her wings and fly. Falling in love certainly isn't on her traveling schedule.
Drop by soon and there'll be an excerpt up here too.
I've just found the cover for it on Amazon- what do you think?
I'm loving the sexy arms and his stubbled chin!!
Oh, and you get the chance to win five thousand pounds apparently!!!
I say go for it!

It's available from most Warehouse and Whitcoulls stores - or online as an ebook from millsandboon.co.uk
I've been thrilled with the reviews so far- I even managed a ten out of ten out of notoriously difficult to please Rubcale
Here's a sample of some of the reviewer's comments...
"Well defined, easy-to-relate-to characters especially the compellingly sexy Connor and a modern day compelling plot as he and Mim struggle to overcome long standing problems make for an engrossing read." (Rubcale on Mills and Boon website)
"Louisa George brings this exceptional story alive for us on the pages. It is a gripping tale of second chances and past secrets. This story hooked me from the very first page and I wanted to know how it would all end."
WAKING UP WITH HIS RUNAWAY BRIDE is an emotionally satisfying story which will keep a reader engrossed from the very first page!" (Nas Dean on Mills and Boon website)
Here's the blurb:

|Marriott Entrance Hall|
The swanky hotel.
The fabulous day out with friends at Universal Studios.
The amazing tour of LA and Santa Monica (felt like I was on a movie set)
The Heartbeat lunch- where I met so many of my online friends (writers, readers, reviewers, editors...)
|Sarah Morgan and Me! (fangirl moment!)|
The Literacy signing- OMG! 400 authors meeting fans/readers face-to-face and raising $50,000 for charity in the process
The workshops- too many to choose from, too little time
|Melanie Milburne, Fiona Lowe and Tina Beckett|
|Fiona and Rita!|
The AWARDS DINNER- RITAS for two amazing writer friends- Fiona Lowe and Sarah Morgan
Once I'm more down to earth I'll actually tell a little more about each day, more details- for now. let's just say...I'm overwhelmed!

I'm also taking part in the Literacy signing- where hundreds of authors sell/sign their books and a portion of the revenue goes to the Proliteracy Worldwide charity. To find out more about this event, who's attending and who will be signing click here.
I've been to a few romance writing conference before- in Australia and New Zealand, but nothing on such a scale as this. There are over 2000 delegates, so I'm expecting a wall of noise, chaos of dizzying proportions and a good amount of fun.
So, catch up with my news when I'm back- early August!

I LOVE it- very HOT!!!!!
The Sydney Opera House in the smaller picture pertains to Fiona MacArthur's book, Marco's Temptation.

It will hit the shelves in November 2012!
Each sale is a total thrill, but this book is especially close to my heart. No cover or official blurb as yet, but I thought I'd give you a sneak preview:
War veteran, Adam Miller, doesn't believe in any kind of happy ever after and has moved to Atanga Bay resigned to a lonely existence. Local Practice Nurse Skye Williams has wanderlust racing through her veins and nothing can keep her in Atanga Bay- except......maybe the new paramedic?
Hop on over to my website www.louisageorge.com to read an excerpt!

Find the article here: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/lifestyle/news/article.cfm?c_id=6&objectid=10784691
It was a real hoot to see my name in print - and to show off my new book!
The best bit was that also in the newspaper that day there was a huge article about Nora Roberts, in defence of Romance writing. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/lifestyle/news/article.cfm?c_id=6&objectid=10785493
It's not often you can say you rub shoulders in the same paper with your writing hero!
Since the article was published I've had a few friends/ acquaintances approach me and ask for details of my writing so it has certainly raised my profile. But it was bizarre when, in the middle of a hot and sweaty zumba class, one of the women pointed at me with that knowing glint on her face that said I know what you do. LOL!
So now my secret is out - the whole world (well, northern New Zealand - and those who actually take time out to read the Weekend section....) knows about my romance writing. I'm still so thrilled about my book and so proud to be part of the Mills and Boon family, I can't wait for more of those I know what you do looks!

So, this is it - the day I've been waiting for pretty much all my life!
Some things in life are worth waiting for…
Jessie Price has lost her only chance at motherhood – it’s a constant hurt, until she meets sinfully sexy single dad Dr Luke McKenzie and his gorgeous little girl. Luke’s intoxicating kisses and his daughter’s adoring hugs have Jessie longing for the impossible. But she's a temporary locum, the clock’s ticking – and there’s only a month to make all her wishes come true…
I'll keep you posted with any reviews or further news, in the meantime I'll crack on with the next book...
Until next time,
