It is day 4 of Christmas Month and I have the wonderful Rachel on my blog today with a Q&A!!
Rachel lives with her husband and two teenage daughters in a small town near Bath in the UK. After having several novels published by small US presses, she secured agent representation in 2011. Since 2013, she has had six books published by Harlequin Superromance (Templeton Cove Stories) and recently signed a contract for two more. She also has four Victorian romances with eKensington/Lyrical Press.
Rachel is a member of the Romantic Novelists Association and Romance Writers of America, and was selected to mentor the Superromance finalist of So You Think You Can Write 2014 contest. When she isn’t writing, you’ll find Rachel with her head in a book or walking the beautiful English countryside with her family. Her dream place to live is Bourton-on-the-Water in South West England.
She likes nothing more than connecting and chatting with her readers and fellow romance writers. Rachel would love to hear from you!

1. Can you tell me about Christmas At The Cove.
Christmas At The Cove is the fourth book in my ongoing Templeton Cove series (published by Harlequin), but all the books can be read stand-alone. This is a reunion/secret baby romance revolving around two new characters to the Cove, Carrie Jameson and Scott Walker. After a brief fling, Carrie left the Cove never to return, but after the death of her husband, she realizes just how fragile life is and the biological father of her little girl has the right to get to know her. Christmas At The Cove is an emotional, forgiving and hopeful story of righting past mistakes.
2. What are some of your favourite Christmas movies?
Every year my husband, our two teenage daughters and I come together the week before Christmas to watch National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. This is a tradition I look forward to every year. I also love The Holiday and It's A Wonderful Life.
3. Who are some of your favourite authors?
I have many but my absolute favorites are Nora Roberts, Jill Shalvis, Philippa Gregory and Jodi Picoult.
4. If you had one Christmas wish, what would it be?
To have another year of my family being happy and healthy. That is the Christmas wish I make every year.
More family for Christmas?
Scott Walker doesn't have time for a relationship. The sexy mechanic has career ambitions, not to mention a mother and three sisters to take care of. The last thing he needs is Carrie Jameson, the beauty he never forgot, arriving in Templeton Cove over the holidays with some unexpected news.
Scott still finds Carrie irresistible, and he's not one to shirk responsibility. Scott's issues with his own dad make the prospect of parenthood a minefield. But if he and Carrie can overcome their fears, this Christmas could bring them the best gift of all.
