Teaser Tuesday 2020 header

Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, where I share snippets of new and past releases and works-in-progress, and sometime con author buddies into doing the same.

If you’re a regular follower, then you’ll know I went in for eye surgery last week. As I’ve written and scheduled this blog post in advance, I have no idea how it went but I’m feeling positive!

(Butting in with a quick edit –  the first op went great!!)

With no Hein house news to update you with, we’re straight into this week’s Teaser Tuesday.

But before that, a book bargain heads-up.

Today is the last day to take advantage of Kobo’s June BOGO – buy one, get one free – sale, available across the Australian, New Zealand, US, UK and Canadian stores.

The First Levenham Love Story Omnibus coverI have three titles included in the promo, including my latest release Scarlett and the Model Man, The Horseman’s Promise and The First Levenham Love Story Omnibus (a boxed set containing Rocking Horse Hill, Summer and the Groomsman and Santa and the Saddler).

The boxed set is a fantastic bargain. Its regular price means you already score three books for the price of two, but with the BOGO sale, you then get it for half that price again when you grab another story.

Here are the titles included in the Kobo promotion with their direct links.

You’d better be quick though. Kobo’s BOGO deal ends today!

Don’t have a Kobo e-reader? Not a problem. Simply download the Kobo app to your smartphone or tablet and you’ll be off and reading in a jiffy.

Thinking about this promo has settled me on what book to excerpt from today: the first in the Levenham Love Story series, Rocking Horse Hill.

I had planned to select a scene with its heroine Em and hero Josh but then I came across this little piece with Audrey Wallace – aka Granny B – and got no further. I can’t help it. I just love her as a character!


The kitchen was so cosy that Em didn’t want to leave, anyway. Her afternoon ride could wait a while longer. ‘I’ll call Gran down. What’s she doing, anyway?’

Rocking Horse Hill by Cathryn Hein - global cover‘Smoking on her balcony, probably,’ said Adrienne, before glancing at Digby and Felicity and mouthing, ‘Sulking.’

Em frowned. Granny B wasn’t the sort to sulk. Snap and snipe, yes, but not sulk. Em’s eyes slid to Felicity, hoping the young girl didn’t feel the snub, but she and Digby were too enraptured with one another to notice.

‘I think she’s a bit upset about the tree.’

‘I’m perfectly fine,’ interrupted a tetchy voice. ‘Your mother made it clear I was quite unwelcome, so I took the hint and left her to it.’

Em hid a smile as Granny B sauntered in with a well-filled crystal tumbler, her eyes as glittery as the glass’s cut surface. She paused to survey the scene before taking a large slug of Scotch.
