All About Christina Brooke

Christina Brooke is a former lawyer who staged a brilliant escape from the corporate world and landed squarely in Regency England.

She was the first Australian to win the Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart Award for her first published novel and was nominated for a RITA award for her second historical romance, writing as Christine Wells. Her books have also been nominated for RT’s Reviewer’s Choice Award, Bookseller’s Best and the Australian Romantic Book of the Year Award.

Christina makes her home in sunny Queensland, Australia with her husband, two small boys and one enormous girl dog called Monty. Monty is the inspiration for Ophelia, the Great Dane in the Ministry of Marriage series. However, the resemblance of any human characters to real life people is purely accidental. Christina loves to travel, particularly to England for research and most especially to see her dear friends and colleagues in the United States. She also loves walking, window shopping for antiques and enjoying good food, good wine and good times with her friends and family.

The Gold Coast has a totally different vibe from Coolum. Lots of high-rises, lots of glitz,

Today, I have a special guest for you, talking about a subject that’s close to all of our hearts 🙂 Welcome, Melanie! Hello all, I’m very happy to be back in the Lair (thank you Christina and the Bandits for letting me come play again!) Now that the holiday craziness is over and it’s 2015 (really? How is that even possible?), I wanted to talk about a very important topic…the impossible hotness of men in suits.  Now the hero of my first

Party Hearty!

          Hi Everyone! Have you heard about our Facebook Holiday Extravaganza  tomorrow? (That’s the 12th of December. The details of the event are here.
