Ocelot Press Book of the Month: August 2021

I can’t believe it’s August, which is terrifying, apart from one thing… The Last Plantagenet? is August’s Book of the Month for Ocelot Press. And for those who know the story, there’s an obvious reason why…

The Last Plantagenet? first came into being as a vague idea for a new Mills & Boon line which had just been announced, in which romances could incorporate elements of the supernatural, or time travel elements. Well, haven’t you always wondered what it would be like to travel back in time, and meet one of your historical idols? For me, that had to be Richard III, and given that at the time, he was very much back in the news, the idea just slotted into place.

If you haven’t read the book already, here’s the blurb, to tell you more…

The fireplace hadn’t looked like a time-portal.

Nottingham, 2011

All Kate had wanted was a fun, relaxing day out, watching the knights jousting at Nottingham Castle. What she got with was something quite different.

Nottingham, 1485

Storm clouds are gathering around the court of Richard III.

Transported from one to the other in a heartbeat, how will Kate handle life at the Ricardian court? And more than that, how will she cope when she catches the eye of the king himself?

Find out in this “highly recommended” story, set just prior to the decisive Battle of Bosworth.
