Award winning outback romance

I am excited to announce that Wedding Bells by The Creek – the fifth book in my Coorah Creek series, is a finalist in the Aspen Gold Readers Choice Award, presented by the Heart of Denver chapter of Romance Writers of America.  So very very thrilled. There are more details here.

The Other Wife

The Other Wife by Juliet Bell published by HQ DigitalJanet Gover & Alison May writing as Juliet Bell

This second book written as Juliet Bell is our tribute to one of the most loved heroines in English literature.

Outback Australia, 1981

After a terrible childhood, Jane comes to Thornfield as nanny to the adorable Adele, watched over by the handsome and enigmatic Edward. Plain and inexperienced, Jane would never dream of being more than his hired help. But swept up in the dramatic beauty of the Outback, she finds herself drawn to Edward. And, to her surprise, he seems to return her feelings.

But Jane is not the first woman Edward has pledged to make mistress of Thornfield.

As a child, Betty was taken from her English home and sent for adoption in Australia. At first, no-one wanted her, deeming her hair too curly, and her skin too dark. Until the scheming Mr Mason sees a chance to use Betty to cement a relationship with the rich and powerful Rochester dynasty…

When Jane discovers Betty’s fate, will she still want to be the next Mrs Rochester?

Janet says…

It was a real pleasure to be collaborating again on another Brontë-inspired novel. In this case, we decided to move Jane Eyre into a new place and a new era. We have set the book against the backdrop of the sexual revolution and the beginning of the AIDS crisis. Growing up in this world, our Jane is very different to the original, but we hope we have given her the same spirit that has kept her so close to our hearts for so long.
