A love story

A review I wanted to share by the wonderful Crystal Trent Dobson. My thanks to her for this lovely review.

Lost in your time

Reviewed By: Crystal Trent Dotson

I fell in love with Elle Amberley’s writing with the first book I read of hers “No Place To Hide” though this is the sequel to it,but it is a standalone book but, it is even better, with even more challenges and a love story of it’s own. It’s so close to the challenges that we face, which brings the character to life, and makes it as if you are Natasha’s friend and helping to see her through her journey. It is an incredible story. I can’t wait to read more of Elle Amberley’s writing.

Still bohemian

A French connection that you could not take out of this girl. Reborn in Paris, like Sacha Guitry once famously said. “Parisian are not born in Paris, they are reborn.”

So mine lay dormant for many years, until after a period of intense grief, a click prompted me in the right direction. This is the story which inspired my novel, Lost in your time.

I’m guesting on the French Village Diaries, talking about this special connection. I invite you to go and read my post on this lovely blog.

Lost in your time

I’m back posting on this blog. Having a site was a learning curve which I didn’t particularly enjoy. I missed the friendliness of this blog and I’m glad I’ll be able to follow others and comment a lot more easily. I hope it will be easier for you to comment too 🙂

Thanks for bearing with me these last few days. Tired of being hacked on my site, I made the decision to move back here, which meant a lot of work and adjustments. Please let me know if you can’t find something or have a question.

Thank you!

Lost in your time

Novelist meets French rock star, prepare for the sparkles.

Rock star or husband – which would you choose?

Ah, the dangers of the internet! We’ve all been warned, but do we take notice?
When Natasha clicks on a link, her whole life is turned upside down. A flash from the past, a chance meeting with a gorgeous French rock star…
A chance to start over and forget the pain and misery from the last two years.
But can Natasha let go? Will she accept this new twist in her life?

What he said…

Forever may not be long enough,”says Matthieu to Natasha in my new novel, Lost in your time.

He’s French and he doesn’t take no for an answer. Impossible is also denied.

So, will the sparks fizz out? Or will Natasha fall for the forever concept?

 

“Forever is the most dizzying word in the English language. The idea of staying in one place forever was like standing at the border of a foreign country, peering over the fence and trying to imagine what life might be like on the other side, and life on the other side was frankly unimaginable.”

Emily St John Mandel ( Last night in Montreal)

What’s your take ?

An erotic novel? Moi?

 

The hazards of the writer’s life.

You write a story and then something unexpected happens.

Waking up one morning, I noticed my husband was laughing his head off. I was getting quite concerned.

Would he recover? The joke was on me of course as he showed me the source of his hilarity.

Occupy Me, a short story I wrote, or is it?

Turns out someone else had published an erotic novella, with the same title.

You’ve got to be kidding? Can’t make these things up.

A message pops up, from my publisher. Bless them, they do try hard and they did have a bit of a struggle with Amazon.

Anyway, they didn’t realise…

Oops.

Of course I asked them to change the title. It is now called Occupy Me, a French Affair. 

Nothing to do with the erotic novella.

The jokes abounded. Friends and readers know I write under two pen names and in different genres. Well, not that genre yet.

You never know. Never say never…

 

Check it out:

The arrest of a French politician in New York brings back unwanted memories as a French woman recalls her ordeals. After a brief holiday back in France, she gets caught in the upheaval in America and witnesses her boyfriend being pepper sprayed at a peaceful demonstration.

“Whether our decisions in life end in delight, or even sometimes with regret, we have all been ‘one click away’ from making a choice in our lives that sets a course in motion. Elle Amberley has nailed it, and returns with her gripping characters and kaleidoscopic prose in her new novel, Lost in Your Time. Her talent to knit raw emotion, tears and even laughter, flows straight off the pages and into reader’s hearts. Elle is a gem of an author, and friend.” 
Jen Tucker, author (The Day I Wore my Panties Inside Out)

“Sexy with a Dose of Smiles. Even in the most dire of health conditions, Natasha finds a way to find humour, love and kindness. And in this latest chapter of her life, Matthieu, a sexy French rock star, takes notice. ‘Forever may not be long enough.’ he says and it’s the way I feel about this book. Why must your books end, Elle Amberley? Thank you for enchanting us with characters who feel real enough to touch… and to love.“

Lost in your time | A novel based in Paris

A song from a long buried past, a weekend in Paris, a meeting with the gorgeous French rock star, sparks fly… But life is never that simple, especially for Natasha…
