If your a regular reader or frequent visitor of Jorie Loves A Story, you know I’ve been smitten with the novelists who publish their relationship-based Romances with ChocLitUK for a good two years now! I love being on the cusp of learning about a ‘new release’ whilst I remain patient to see if the Digital First new ChocLit novel will make it to a print release further down the road of it’s lifetime. I don’t mind the gaps between the ebooks and the print editions – as it’s always given me the pleasure of balancing my ‘next ChocLit reads’ to include both Front List and Back List offerings. Thus, I am enjoying being a member of the Reveal Team at ChocLit whilst it gives me a chance to introduce my readers to a variety of sub-genres within Romance I appreciate picking up to read!

The Yorkshire Romances are getting a sixth entry into the series with this new release, which I am thankful to be highlighting this last day of May! It brings everything a bit full circle! I wanted to highlight the rest of the series, in case you are new to reading ChocLit or new to reading Jane Lovering, as I myself, haven’t yet had the pleasure either!

The Yorkshire Romances in sequence:

The Yorkshire Romances are one of the series I felt I should focus on this year, as Ms Lovering has been adding to the series since I first started to review for ChocLit! I have slowly seen new stories emerge throughout this series and one of them (I Don’t Want to Talk About It) was the topic of one of our recent #ChocLitSaturday chats wherein it inspired us to chat on the topic of: how to write an emotionally dramatic story but maintain a bit of levity. Ms Lovering was absent during the chat, and I was most delighted to report to her afterwards, it became quite the lively discussion – whilst we were giving a nod to her latest release as well!

Throughout May, as I resumed hosting #ChocLitSaturday after a short hiatus, I have re-directed our chats back to focused discussions as well as keeping in the know for upcoming ChocLit releases – giving the chat a platform to help introduce new readers to ChocLit (which I have striven to do since I created the chat) as new releases become available. I enjoy selecting topics that correlate with the releases as much as I like seeing how we go OT (off-topic) to help continue to generate the camaraderie that has knitted us all together. This was one of the chats that sparked new interest by new chatters to join us, as we are continuing to grow our audience, two years after our first #ChocLitSaturday!

What is interesting to mention, is this is one series I was considering reading out of order, as some of the story-lines appealed me to out of sequence with their publication order! Ironically or no, Please Don’t Stop the Music was one of the first ChocLit novels a bookish of friend of mine read after I suggested she take a chance on reading one of the authors – as I was having such a blast discovering ChocLit myself – it was one of the first times a friend of mine was as wicked happy for the discovery as I had been myself!

I have had the pleasure of knowing first-hand how quirky Ms Lovering’s humour can be as I had the joy of having her presence in #ChocLitSaturday until her schedule conflicted with our chat hour. It was such a shame – as although I understand when writers and readers both have to duck out of the chats, she managed to leave me in chucklements and stitches simply by how she expressed herself or added light-hearted additions to any topic we were chattering about! Her presence was surely missed, and happily returned this past #ChocLitSaturday as she helped celebrate Berni Steven’s upcoming PNR release to continue where Dance Until Dawn left off!

What a lovely pleasure to celebrate a second new novel by Ms Lovering in one month! Below you will find out about the premise behind the sixth installment of this series & my initial take on what it will reveal to me as a reader – whose still sorting out which book to read first! Laughs.

On my connection to the author:

I happily have had the pleasure of interacting with Ms Lovering through #ChocLitSaturday the chat off/on for the past two years; up until when she had to take a hiatus from joining us last Autumn or thereabouts. I am always thankful when the ChocLit authors can find a niche where they feel comfortable chattering with fellow ChocLit authors, Romance novelists, book bloggers, readers, and other bookishly chatty spirits who alight on Saturdays! Ms Lovering always knows how best to give us a heap of laughter, a wicked good smile and happily make #ChocLitSaturday a lovely place to be!

I am disclosing this, to assure you that I can formulate an honest opinion, even though I have interacted with her ahead of reading her novels. I treat each book as a ‘new experience’, whether I personally know the author OR whether I am reading a book by them for the first time. This is also true when I follow-up with them on future releases and celebrate the book birthdays that come after their initial publication.

Cover Reveal | NEW #ChocLit novel by Jane Lovering “Can’t Buy Me Love”!Can't Buy Me Love Cover Reveal
by Jane Lovering

Is it all too good to be true?

When Willow runs into her old university crush, Luke, she’s a new woman with a new look – not to mention a little bit more cash after a rather substantial inheritance. Could she be lucky enough to score a fortune and her dream man at the same time?

Then Willow meets Cal; a computer geek with a slightly odd sense of humour. They get on like a house on fire — although she soon realises that there is far more to her unassuming new friend than meets the eye…

But money doesn’t always bring happiness, and Willow finds herself struggling to know who to trust. Are the new people in her life there because they care – or is there another reason?

What I appreciate about the Yorkshire Romances series as a whole is each installment reads to be individually unique to it’s own setting and cast of characters; I am unsure what threads the series together as a whole, as I haven’t yet read one of the novels, but to find a series where you can meet such a varied and diverse set of stories is quite champion, if you ask me! I think it speaks to the different themes of interest on behalf of the author, how she likes to pull together different threads of interest per each character she’s focusing on in turn and thereby, deepening where each installment can take the reader. For instance, I Don’t Want to Talk About It had a very emotional context to it’s central heart.

I must confess, I oft was drawn into stories of inheritances (especially the unexpected kind!) since I was a young girl – those were the Classical novels I would delight in reading because they had such a capture of ‘real life caught between a change of circumstance and the reality of who you really are’ merging into a story where you have to choose how your going to proceed. I even followed this up by watching tv movies of the same theme; each story in turn featured a character who had to go through a period of growth and self-reflection where they truly developed into a better version of themselves. Even in my beloved Cosy Mystery series Aunt Dimity the title character has to come to terms with an inheritance that truly was quite magically wicked in the end!

I do love a good matching between two opposite personalities or two people who live different lifestyles; it works either way for me; to see how differences either make or break a relationship. Equal to that, there is something about the quirkiness of geeks vs nerds (in case you hadn’t known, I’m a geek!) and how each of them can be a good match for someone who doesn’t self-identify as either/or too!

When it comes to money and people’s true colours shining through their intentions – that happens to be one of my favourite twists in a plot to read! I like noodling out which person wormed into someone’s life looking for a quick take from a person who came into an inheritance vs the sincerity of friendship for the sake of genuine concern for another person’s welfare. It’s a slippery slope as they say – whom to trust and when to know to question the trust you put into others when circumstances change overnight.

I could tell immediately I liked the potboiler brewing into the backbone of this installment, as it’s quite a truthful statement to make – does money have the reverse effect of muddling your life further than it might have been already or does it present certain assurances but give you a bit of a new set of curious hiccups to circumvent as well? I think the title brings the scope of the story into play quite nicely and if you trust a title, I think it forebears well the outcome we’ll all have to wait to read!

Similar to blog tours where I feature book reviews, as I choose to highlight an author via a Guest Post, Q&A, Interview, etc., I do not receive compensation for featuring supplemental content on my blog. I provide the questions for interviews and topics for the guest posts; wherein I receive the responses back from publicists and authors directly. I am naturally curious about the ‘behind-the-scenes’ of stories and the writers who pen them; I have a heap of joy bringing this content to my readers.

Reader Interactive Question:

Have you previously had the pleasure of reading a ChocLitUK Romance novel!? Did you now they regularly release novels with strong female leads and male characters who are a delight to find on the pages? ChocLit truly has found a niche for giving romance readers something hearty to chew on whilst seeking out uplifting relationship-based Rom with just a dash and a hint of intrigue, drama, and suspense!

What do you seek out from a romance novel?

The relationship-based drama, comedy, historical, or suspense? OR the strength of the setting, timescape, and dimensional eclipse of the characters therein!?

    • Hallo, Hallo Ms Stevens!

      Truly!? Ooh, how wicked lovely of you to share! This means I have a bit of an insider edge to know what I’ll find in a Lovering Rom! I *loved!* your humour in Dance Until Dawn!! Eek. Happy that little mystery is over!! *Blessed!

  1. Oh, WOW! What an absolutely perfect cover! Jane, I’m in love! Thanks for sharing, Jorie. I’ve just finished ‘I Don’t Want to Talk About It’, btw. I adored it and can’t recommend it enough. It has everything. Good luck, Jane. This looks like another gorgeous read. :) xx

    • Hall, Hallo Ms Browne!

      You’re wicked welcome! I LOVE hosting these Reveals for ChocLit! It’s perfect for a ChocLitholic such as myself! (sneaky grins) I get the pleasure of finding out about upcoming new books and get to spoilt my readers a bit on what my thoughts might be ‘after I read the stories’ too! I wanted to do something unique and different for the Reveals, and cleverly, thus far, I have stories of my own to share alongside my predictions for where the story might go, too! Quite lovely for a book blogger!

      You struck my curious bone – what was your favourite part of I Don’t Want to Talk About It? I was wondering if it was how she interlaced the drama and levity or if it was how she approached the core of the novel’s heart? This one I felt was one of the more emotional installments for the Yorkshire Romances (although, I could be mistaken),… do you agree? OR is this where you started the series!?

    Thank you so much for this, Jorie (and for being so nice about my…ahem…sometimes strange sense of humour!). I can’t wait to find out what you think of my books!

    And, to help you out – the thing that links all my books – that makes them a ‘series’, is the setting. All the books are set in various places in the North Yorkshire countryside….

    • Hallo, Hallo Ms Lovering!

      Oh, wells, anyone who comes to know you knows you have a cheeky style of humour & simply love to put a unique bent on things! It keeps everyone full of bubblements of laughter, whilst giving a new angle on a perspective to consider! I love your humour (thus far known) in our chats, and I can imagine you expand on it inside your novels! Yes, I look forward to exploring your novels, too! I have heard good things about a few of the titles in the series – thus, it’s whet an appetite of interest!

      The setting! How lovely! I love how series are being bridged by new definitions and points of access these days! No longer limited to reoccurring characters or a continuation of a previous installment! I don’t know too much about Yorkshire, and that’s part of the appeal of reading the series for me! Any part of England I haven’t yet ‘met’ is a gift! It was wonderful to celebrate two of your books during May!
