Waking up with .... Harper Impulse

Not so long ago I posted here on the blog about an exciting new digital-first imprint from Harper Collins. In the short time since then the people at Harper Impulse have been busy. They've signed not one but two South African romance authors - myself and Rae Rivers.

The first two books (including my debut Waking up in Vegas) launched on 9th May and have already received some lovely reviews.

Harper Impulse have been such a joy to work with. Not only do they move at lightning speed, but they're fun, friendly and approachable, and they're passionate about books. For me, perhaps the best thing about this imprint though has been their desire for books that don't fit the mould. They want fresh voices and fresh angles, so no formula reads here!
If you're interested in submitting to Harper Impulse, check out their website here.

What happens in Vegas…
Waking up to the bright lights of Vegas in an unfamiliar penthouse suite, cocktail waitress Phoenix Montgomery finds she’s covered from head to foot in gold glitter and not alone – aside from the empty bottle of champagne, there’s a mystery man in the shower and a huge sparkly ring on her finger!

Stays in Vegas?
There’s no denying Max Waldburg’s demi-god sex appeal but commitment-phobic Phoenix doesn’t do relationships. Only it seems her new husband (agh!) has other ideas…he’s trying to keep that ring on her finger and his wife firmly back in his bed. The only question on her lips is – why? Or maybe, why not?

Waking up in Vegas is available now from Amazon, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble, Kobo and iTunes.
