Release day: The Charm Offensive

12 June 2018

Today is the official release of The Charm Offensive by Darcy Delany (The Modern Day Fairy Tale series, book 3) (ebook and paperback, self-published). Here’s the blurb:

Nick Hammond is a politician on the verge of being dumped by his party. Despite his integrity and being part of the Hammond family political dynasty, the public prefers his slick political rival, Christian Lyons.

To save his career, Nick devises a secret plan called The Charm Offensive. He plans to channel the old-world charm of Clark Gable to win the voters back – and, he hopes, attract the attention of Caroline Brent.

Caroline is the beautiful political journalist dating Christian Lyons. When she discovers a secret about Christian, she’s torn between doing the right thing and saving herself and the man she loves. She needs help, and despite the risk, she feels she can trust Nick Hammond.

But is Nick the man she believes him to be? Or is he just putting on a good political show?

The Charm Offensive is a sparkling story about the rewards that come from taking risks and being our true selves.

Darcy dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

I am a big fan of old movie actors such as Clark Gable, who effused suave confidence. I wanted to explore whether the romance of old movies was still relevant today—and what better setting than Parliament, something we don’t associate with romance! Nick is my favourite sort of hero—the strong, circumspect type of man. He struggles to show the voters what he can offer them, and also lacks the confidence to approach the woman of his dreams, Caroline Brent. That changes when he channels Clark Gable—a ploy that emboldens him to become his true self. Caroline is a savvy political journalist with a problem and she’s in a quandary about how to deal with it. Although Nick Hammond is her partner’s political rival, he’s the only person Caroline can trust. In the process, though, she discovers there is far more to Nick Hammond than charm and good looks! The Charm Offensive is a story about the modern-day magic that happens when you have the courage to follow your heart.
