Great Amazon Review for Bull at the Gate

A new Amazon 5 Star Review for Bull at the Gate from fellow author Linn B Halton. Here's what Linn had to say:

"To quote author Tricia Jones "I write contemporary romance with strong, sexy heroes who like their own way and heroines who give as good as they get". I can tell you that Bull at the Gate will not disappoint!

Alex `Bull' McKinley is a businessman first and foremost. Dee Ashman is trying to protect something known as the Fairy Gate, which many believe has afforded the village of Bower Magna a mystical protection over the years. Alex is ruled by his head and business; his plans to develop a large swathe of land, including that upon which the Fairy Gate stands, are being slowed down and Dee is proving to be a stubborn opponent. Even when others in the village begin to see the financial benefits that will arise from the development, Dee just digs her heels in even deeper.

But it seems love and hate go hand in hand for Alex and Dee, as neither can deny the passion that builds between them. Can a cold hearted business man with an eye on making a profit, ever understand the emotional pull of the Fairy Gate and the way it is inextricably a part of Dee's and the village's heritage?

A great read that will keep you turning the pages and keep your heart fluttering! When two beautiful people are drawn together by sexual chemistry, will their differences be strong enough to keep them apart? I know the answer but I'm not telling - I wouldn't want to rob you of the fun of finding out for yourself and enjoying this wonderfully romantic and passionate story.

Thank you, Linn.

Release Day!

Today sees the release of Bull at the Gate, a contemporary romance with a hint of paranormal. Authors talk about the book of their heart and this is probably mine. The idea for the book simmered in my mind for years and I love the characters of Alex and Dee. Plus, Dee's relationship with her grandmother is so close to mine with my own beloved Nan, that I wrote those scenes with a lump in my throat.

Bull at the Gate has already received a lovely review from Linn Halton of Love a Happy Ending. Linn says it's "a great read that will keep you turning the pages and keep your heart fluttering".

Here's the blurb:

Alexander “Bull” McKinley’s reputation as a hard-nosed businessman is tested when an old Fairy Gate and local superstition stand in the way of a lucrative development contract. Alex has his hands full trying to convince the villagers to play ball, without the unexpected—and definitely unwanted—attraction to the feisty redhead leading the revolt.

Dee Ashman detests those who put profit before people, and she’s damned if an arrogant, insensitive and, okay, wildly attractive capitalist is going to destroy the symbolic heart of the village and break her beloved grandmother’s heart.

But they cannot deny the desire that burns between them nor the unleashed passion neither can resist.
