Holly’s Convenient Playground – The Fairest Cape

My book, Haunted Bride, is set deep in the wine country of the Western Cape in South Africa. When Holly marries Joshua, a man she meets for the first time on the chapel steps moments before she has to say 'I do', she knows absolutely nothing about him - not even that he is a vigneron and vintner. 

After the wedding, he takes her to Fairley, his wine estate. Surrounded by majestic mountains, the vineyards stretch as far as the eye can see. That's when she realizes how rich Joshua really is.

She fell with her ass in the butter, but as far as she is concerned, it isn't a real marriage. It is the means to an end - to get her children back. She wants nothing from Joshua, only his name for a little while.

That she can't resist him has nothing to do with his financial status, but with him being a ridiculously attractive man - pure chemistry. But everything stands in Holly's way to wedded bliss - a disgruntled fiancee, a mother-in-law who hates her, and an ex who suddenly wants her back. Then she discovers that the ghost who won't leave her alone was murdered and will only rest if Holly got to the bottom of it.

Magnus Jones, the disgruntled fiancee Nicole's father, hides Holly between the wine barrels in the Fairley winery so that Joshua couldn't find her. As you can see from the picture, there isn't much space between the barrels, but Magnus doesn't care for her comfort - he is going to kill her anyway.

Haunted Bride is of course the first book in the Moragh's Ghost trilogy. In the other two books, Payback and Poppet Nicole, the story moves away from the Winelands, but returns to Fairley time and again because Nicole is of the opinion that Joshua should be married to her, not Holly, even though she is pregnant with Ned's child.

Spinner of ghostly yarns with a passion for romance and a touch of fantasy. Be prepared to encounter strange characters and to-die-for heroes.
