Release day: Indebted to Moreno
Today is the official release of Indebted to Moreno by Kate Walker (paperback and ebook, Harlequin). Here’s the blurb:
Sins of the past must be paid!
On trembling legs, dress designer Rose Cavalliero stares up at the man she never thought she’d see again. Tall, dark and dangerous, Spaniard Nairo Moreno took Rose’s virginity before a misunderstanding led her to nearly destroy his life. But now he’s back and determined to collect the debt she owes him.
Designing his precious sister’s wedding gown will cement Rose’s career. But if she’d known that accepting Nairo’s offer would see her blackmailed into becoming a more-than-convenient fiancée to the man who broke her heart, Rose would have said no…wouldn’t she?
Kate dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
Different things are the ‘seed’ for each new story. When I was thinking of the plot for this book, the ‘seed’ was the phrase ‘scarlet and black’. It’s the title of a nineteenth century novel, but it kept running over and over in my head and I began to picture the characters who would fit those descriptions. Rose came first—a red Rose was easy to think of and it gave me an instant image of her. Black—well, that was my hero Nairo Moreno. Moreno means dark—dark-haired—and it just fitted my hero with the dark past and dark heart. My hero and heroine met years ago when they were ten years younger, in very different circumstances—and they didn’t even know each other’s real names! Fate drove them apart because of a dark secret and a terrible lack of trust but now they are brought together again by another twist of fate. Rose is a skilful dress designer, specialising in bridal wear and Nairo’s sister wants her to design her wedding dress. So it’s the perfect time, he thinks, to set the record straight on those past betrayals. With the preparations for a huge society wedding going on around them, old feelings, old desires surface all over again and Rose and Nairo have to find the courage to truly trust each other this time around.
