Several of my books have touched on the lives of the inhabitants of Upper Haughton. Willow and Mike Armstrong from The Runaway Bride settled here. The Hilliards from A Perfect Proposal live in the Old Rectory. Jake and Amy Hallam, from my RITA® nominated book The Bachelor’s Baby still live here, too. Of course they moved out of Amy’s cottage a long time ago, needing more room for their three boys. No, Amy still hasn’t got the daughter she longed for. You didn’t really expect her to keep that abandoned baby, did you? Not when there was a desperate mother out there somewhere?
Little Polly isn’t far away though. She lives in the cottage with her mother Kay Lovell, who works at the village shop, makes prize-winning marmalade and spends her spare time helping out the neighbours. And never talks about her past.
Linden Lodge, however, has been empty for six years. The garden is running wild, the blackberries are tempting – and desperately needed for the village harvest upper – and the lock on the gate is broken. But Dominic Ravenscar has at long last returned and Kay’s trespass doesn’t go unnoticed...
Upper Haughton is a real village, a place from my own childhood. I’ve only changed the name. Come and visit, check out an excerpt from A FAMILY OF HIS OWN which is published as a Tender Romance™ in March in the UK and a Harlequin Romance® in May in the US.

RITA Award-winning author Liz Fielding "gets better and better with every book!" -- Romantic TimesFrom the Inside Flap:
It almost broke her heart to see him making the effort for her, and she wanted to take his hand, put her arms around and tell him that she understood. That one day it would be all right.
"Please don't feel you have to laugh," she said. "It isn't in the least bit compulsory."
"Okay." And without warning, deep lines fanned out from his eyes and the smile became the real thing.
Kay had to catch her breath and force herself to concentrate on the job in hand. Dominic Ravenscar did it for her.
"What happened to your daughter's father?"
The abrupt change of subject threw her and she responded to this unexpected jab at a raw nerve in much the same way as he had. Instinctively. Defensively.
"Polly never had a father."
