Here Comes A Groom -- Tom

I promised to introduce you to the other two grooms who are part of the Here Come The Grooms II contest.

So let me begin with Tom MacFarlane, hero of Liz Fielding's The Bride's Baby.

In fact, because Liz knows Tom so much better than I do, I'll let her introduce him to you.

According to Liz, Tom is a man who has everything except the very necessary well-bred wife to put the gloss on his meteoric rise from the lowest sphere of society.

A man who knows that love hurts and is having none of it, only for love to throw a spanner into the carefully oiled works and overturn his well-laid plans.

No doubt he'll take over and tell you the tale himself, but here's a bride's eye view of him to be going on with.

Sylvie turned to find her way blocked by six and a half feet of broad-shouldered male and experienced a bewildering sense of deja vu.

A feeling that this had happened before.

And then she looked up and realised it was not an illusion. This had happened before -- except on that occasion the male concerned had been wearing navy pin-stripe instead of grey cashmere.

"Some billionaire," Laura had said, but she hadn't mentioned a name. And Sylvie hadn't bothered to ask, pretending she didn't care.

She cared now, because it wasn't just "some billionaire" who'd bought her family home and was planning to turn it into a conference centre.

It was Tom McFarlane, the man with whom, just for a few moments, she'd totally lost it. Whose baby she was now carrying.


Whoa. Sounds like there's going to be just a bit of conflict there!

And as just this past Thursday a copy of The Bride's Baby, straight from Liz herself, landed in my mailbox, I am just about to settle in and open the book and find out what happens between Sylvie and Tom.

As every book Liz writes is a warm and wonderful treat, I am looking forward to it!

Glad the book arrived safely, Anne.

It's been such a giddy week here -- the Mills & Boon Centenary party, the RNA Awards lunch -- that I hardly know whether I'm coming or going!

Sounds as if it was a great week, though, Liz! Wish I'd been at the M&B party. I'm reading The Sheikh's Unsuitable Bride now and absolutely loving it! Great book. The Bride's Baby will have a lot to live up to coming after Zahir and Sylvie!

Ooops, I mean Diana! Sylvie is the Bride in The Bride's Baby. It's Diana who's dream is to have her very own pink taxi! Sorry, Liz!
