Well, my debut novel, Love is Blood, is now available on Amazon.
Love is Blood is a romantic novel about how one cataclysmic act of terrorism causes a chain reaction changing the course of history. It’s about how fate conspires to bring two lovers together from different backgrounds, countries and continents who, unbeknownst to them, may share the same father.
The story alternates chapter by chapter between 1969 and the year 2000.
In the year 2000, Dominic Grant meets Sylvia de la Fouchon by chance when a terrorist bomb at Charles de Gaulle airport causes traffic control mayhem around France. If it weren’t for a Corsican terrorist, seeking revenge for the death of his fiance, Dominic would have caught an earlier flight, never having met Sylvia.
The pair embark on a passionate affair, but as their story unfolds we begin to suspect that the couple may have more in common than they realise. Both Sylvia and Dominic never knew their fathers and, as they learn more about each other, we are faced with the terrifying prospect that the two lovers are possibly half-brother and sister and may have committed incest.
Intertwined with their relationship; set in 1969, we follow the clandestine life of toy designer, Harry Grant. He has a troubled relationship at home in Dublin and a mistress in the South of France. Harry ultimately agrees to elope to America with his enigmatic and seductive French mistress. He leaves his pregnant wife in Dublin, but will his mistress turn up at the top of the Empire State Building? Or will Harry be left to build a new life in New York alone?
The novel shows how events beyond human control overlap to shape the key protagonists’ destiny. Ultimately coming full circle, when the Corsican terrorist, whose actions brought Sylvia and Dominic together, is the one Sylvia confides in for advice. She goes to visit him in prison to discuss why he did what he did, and the consequences it had, not just for them, but for everyone.
Love is Blood is not just two passionate, intertwining love stories, but a cosmic journey about how interrelated everything and everyone in the universe actually is.
Obviously, I’d be extremely happy if you popped along to Amazon and purchased a copy of it. (Just click on the links above or the cover image.) But, if it’s not your thing, any extra publicity about it by sharing would be greatly appreciated.
Don’t worry if you don’t have a Kindle device. You can download the Kindle App directly onto your Mac or PC.
