About the author

 

 

Award winning author, LIZ FIELDING, was born with itchy feet. She was working in Africa before her twenty-first birthday and - gathering her own special hero and a couple of children on the way - lived in Zambia, Botswana, Kenya and the all over the Middle East, with pauses for sightseeing pretty much everywhere in between.

She finally came to a full stop in a tiny Welsh village cradled by misty hills, and now mostly leaves her pen to do the travelling.

When she’s not sorting out the lives and loves of her characters, she potters in the garden, reads her favourite authors and spends a lot of time wondering, “What if…?”

The Beaumont Brides Trilogy

 

The Beaumont Brides trilogy charts the loves of three women – Felicity Beaumont, Claudia Beaumont and Melanie Devlin.

 

WILD JUSTICE

 

BETRAYED by a lover, her career in ruins, Fizz Beaumont devotes all her energy to restoring Broomhill Bay pier, using the old theatre as the home for the radio station that is her life.

The arrival of tycoon Luke Devlin, who has taken over her major sponsor, threatens not just her radio station but -- as he offers her a lesson in passion which promises to set the skies ablaze -- everything she holds dear.

 

WILD LADY

 

WITH old secrets and past loves revealed, the story moves on to, Claudia who on the morning of a parachute jump for charity receives an anonymous letter warning her that she will not survive the jump.

Gabriel MacIntyre has no time for women like Claudia Beaumont. She’s so beautiful that she takes his breath away and she’s used to having any man she wants. Not him.

Claudia Beaumont has no time for men like Gabriel MacIntyre. Overwhelmingly arrogant, swift to leap to conclusions. He thinks he knows her, but he doesn’t. And she doesn’t give a damn. But when her life is threatened, Mac is the only person she can turn to for help and suddenly their bantering flirtation becomes so much more.

 

WILD FIRE

 

MELANIE Devlin, tired of being treated like an airhead blonde, accepts a challenge from an old friend to prove that she’s made of sterner stuff. Within weeks she’s organising a revolution in the company she works for and falling for the dangerous, Jack Wolfe. Then Jack offers her a week in the West Indies as his pretend lover…

Jack Wolfe has no intention of letting Melanie Beaumont see how much he is attracted to her. He knows she’s hiding something, and he’s determined to discover the truth and a week on a tropical island is going to give him all the time he needs.

 

All the characters in these books have no existence outside the imagination of the author, and have no relation whatsoever to anyone bearing the same name or names. They are not even distantly inspired by any individual known or unknown to the author, and all the incidents are pure fiction.

CHAPTER ONE

 

‘LUKE Devlin?’ Fizz Beaumont pushed
a distracted hand through the heavy mop of chestnut hair that fell across her face, obstinately refusing to be confined by a pair of delicate antique tortoiseshell combs that had once belonged to her mother.

Irritated by their uselessness she abandoned them on her desk and scooped her unruly hair into an elastic band with one practised movement before her father’s continued silence alerted her to the fact that this was more than a social call to discuss a letter he had received that morning.

She looked up. Edward Beaumont, tall, handsome, elegantly tailored heartthrob to the blue rinse brigade looked unusually awkward and her eyes finally dropped to the letter he was holding in his hand.

‘Who is Luke Devlin?’ she asked. Then, ‘What does he want?’

‘I think, my dear, that he’s already got what he wants,’ her father replied, heavily. ‘He’s taken over Harries Industries.’

‘Harries? You’re joking,’ she began, then realised with a chill feeling in her stomach that had nothing whatever to do with the February wind finding its way through every corner of the old sash cord window, that he wasn’t joking. Her father was in deadly earnest. ‘But how could he take over? Harries isn’t for sale. Where’s Michael? Surely he isn’t just letting this happen?’ The questions tumbled out but her father clearly had no answers. ‘I’ve never even heard of the man,’ she finished, as if that would put an end to such nonsense.

Edward Beaumont pulled a face, sympathising with his daughter’s bewildered reaction. ‘It seems that not many people have, at least not until it’s too late. He keeps a very low profile.’
