My location: East Midlands Airport
Okay, so the route from Derby to Birmingham doesn’t go *that* close to East Midlands Airport, but it’s within 15 miles or so, so close enough, I reckon. 😉
I also live fairly close to this area, but unfortunately I won’t be able to see the torch relay because I’m in the Lake District as we speak, so I’ll miss it! Grr!
Anyway, the link isn’t that I live nearby, it’s that one of my stories has part of the action taking place in East Midlands Airport – although it’s never actually mentioned by name. My characters also live in the Castle Donington area.
Off the Shelf is a het erotic romance novella, about a travel writer and a bookseller. Here’s the blurb:
At 35, travel writer Annalise is fed up with insensitive comments about being left on the shelf. It’s not as if she doesn’t want a man, but her busy career doesn’t leave her much time for relationships. Sexy liaisons with passing acquaintances give Annalise physical satisfaction, but she needs more than that. She wants a man who will satisfy her mind as well as her body. But where will she find someone like that? It seems Annalise may be in luck when a new member of staff starts working in the bookshop at the airport she regularly travels through. Damien appears to tick all the boxes; he’s gorgeous, funny and intelligent, and he shares Annalise’s love of books and travel. The trouble is, Damien’s shy and Annalise is terrified of rejection. Can they overcome their fears and admit their feelings, or are they doomed to remain on the shelf?
