One woman, two men and the impossible choice between love and duty.


I'm really excited to reveal the cover of my new novel, Occupying Love, set in the Occupation of Guernsey in World War Two.  Available to pre-order on Amazon from June 24.


June 1940

With the Nazis poised to invade Guernsey in World War Two, feisty student Lydia Le Page returns home to rescue her parents, but as she arrives the harbour is bombed and she’s trapped on the island as the German Military Occupation begins.

Two very different men enter her life: Martin Martell, the handsome but mysterious rector of Torteval Church and Major Otto Kruger, the ruthless German Kommandant, who soon falls under her spell.

When Martin disappears Lydia discovers a secret from her past that threatens her whole future. Will she be able to keep it from the enemy? Or is it too late? This is a story about love, loss and the unique identity that makes us who we are.

You must be super excited. The cover looks amazing. Congratulations Marilyn, I will be ordering a copy. The only problem is I’m not sure I will remember the pre order date, but I’m sure you will mention it again on your blog.

Thanks, Barbara! I think I might just be tempted to mention the publication date again in the next week or two.....
