My Most Memorable & Romantic Trip EVER...by Rachel Brimble




As the warmer days (hopefully!) start to appear, I am looking forward to seeing what trips my family and I make this year...although a trip my husband and I made to Ireland last year will be tough to beat.

This trip will probably remain one of my most thrilling and romantic trips ever!

I heard through social media that Nora Roberts was to host a rare afternoon tea and signing at Ashford Castle in Ireland. As a huge fan and living in the England, I knew this was likely to be the only time I had a chance to meet my favorite romance writer. I "casually" mentioned her visit to my husband.

As a complete surprise to me, within twenty-four hours, he'd booked the flights, a night in Ashford Castle and afternoon tea with Nora. I was beyond ecstatic, as you can imagine!

The whole day was hectic with a nightmare taxi trip from the airport to the castle but we made it to the afternoon tea just as Nora was about to take to the stage to be interviewed by her UK editor. I literally sat there in awe the entire time, haha! Nora chatted with me and signed her latest book and when I mentioned writing for Superromance she asked me about my Templeton Cove series and said I needed to make it to a RWA conference. Which I will one day!

It was two days I will never forget.

Bring on summer 2015!

Book five in my Templeton Cove series is due for release in September - cannot wait to see my artwork for HER HOMETOWN REDEMPTION. Happy Reading!
