Love conquers   all...

If a man told me he'd 💀 any other man who looked at me, I'd get a restraining order.

If you like absolute queens and the green-flag men who worship them, you've come to the right place!

I believe you don't have to put your inner feminist aside to throw yourself into passion. I believe that soulmate connections don't require weddings or babies. I believe you can enjoy all-consuming romantic love and know that being your own Person is the greatest love of all.

This is Not a Romance is a monthly series of steamy bite-sized books (around an hour's read, give or take!). It explores love in all its messy, unique, unpredictable glory. Each novella is standalone, so you can dip in and out as you please, but a mystery connects them all.

Some are closely involved, others just passing by, but as the story progresses, a gripping scandal is unravelled. We return to couples later in their relationship as they explore new challenges, find their way back to each other - and sometimes realise that happiness now looks different for them. In This is Not a Romance, Happy Ever After is just the beginning...
