The French Prize - Out Now!

An ancient riddle, a broken vow – a modern-day quest for a medieval treasure.

“With sweat tingling her brow and her breath shallow with anticipation, she carefully worked the section, scraping away stubbornly clinging remnants of soil and the few calcium encrustations that yielded to the pick. It took another forty minutes to ply the deposits free, then, with her heart thumping, she took a breath and gently blew away the last of the dust.

She stared, blinking, and wondering what the hell she’d uncovered.”

9/10 Bree, from 1 Girl 2 Many Books: “The French Prize has a little of everything – romance, mystery, action, food and fun. It’s taken Cathryn Hein out of the rural romance box and proved that she has a lot more to offer readers with a complex and enjoyable story. I’ve always loved her rurals but I have to say, I love this one just as much!”

2014 is proving to be a fabulous year. Not only has my new rural romance, Rocking Horse Hill, released to fantastic reviews and gone into reprint twice already, come September 1st my first romantic adventure will hit the shelves. It’s called The French Prize and is set in Provence with a super sexy French hero and gutsy Australian heroine. It’s a thrilling tale and I’m ridiculously excited about its release.

For rural romance fans, I can assure you I’m working very hard on my 2015 release, The Falls. This book features lots of quirky locals getting up to no good in their stunning NSW valley. More on that one soon. I love to hear from readers so feel free to contact me through the Contact page, or via Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Goodreads.

Happy reading!
