Yes, it will soon be here, the paperback copy of The Nordic Heart Box Set!
With a new cover by my wonderful and talented designer, Jessica Bell, the box set has 730 pages with the four novels: The English Heart, The Faithful Heart, The Good Heart and The True Heart all printed between one set of covers. Just to remind you, if you haven’t read the books, here are the blurbs for all the four novels:
THE ENGLISH HEART
When Kaisa, a young Finnish student is invited to the British Embassy cocktail party in Helsinki to celebrate a Royal Navy visit to Finland, she’s not looking for romance. Her future has been carefully planned. She’s to finish her studies and marry her respectable, reliable fiancé. Enter dashing Navy Officer Peter. Kaisa falls head over heels in love and the two embark on a long-distance relationship. But at the height of the Cold War, while the Englishman chases Russian submarines, Kaisa is stuck in Finland, a country friendly with the Soviet Union.
Can their love go the distance?
THE FAITHFUL HEART
Newly married to her dreamy Navy Officer husband, Kaisa’s happiness is shattered when she discovers her hard-fought degree from Finland is less than useless in Britain. She’s suddenly faced with a lonely life in the shadows of Peter’s brilliant career, which takes him away to sea, unreachable during his long submarine patrols. Enter rich, charming and clever Duncan, who seems to have all the answers to Kaisa’s problems.
Can their love stay on course?
THE GOOD HEART
Kaisa knows she’s to blame. It’s her fault the relationship with the handsome Englishman, Navy Officer Peter, has ended. What can she do but move back to her native Finland? But sleeping on her sister’s sofa bed thousands of miles away from her beloved Peter won’t bring him back, so when Kaisa is offered a job in London she jumps at the chance.
Peter is not sorry. He’s angry. Angry at everything and everybody. He’s about to lose the one thing that means most to him: his Navy career. All because he was stupid enough to fall in love.
Can they love each other again?
THE TRUE HEART
London 1990. When Kaisa suffers a third miscarriage, her submarine officer husband Peter is devastated. Kaisa, who’s chosen a job with the BBC World Service over the traditional life of a Navy Wife on a marriage patch in Scotland, feels guilty. Has living apart from her husband, to pursue a demanding career, contributed to her inability to keep hold of a baby? But childlessness pales into insignificance when her old friend Rose tells Kaisa about a former lover’s serious illness. The consequences of Duncan’s condition could be devastating for Kaisa and Peter’s future.
And then life takes another heart-breaking twist …
Can love conquer all?
The first ever proof copy of The Nordic Heart Box Set arrived today, and I can tell you that I was incredibly excited when I opened the parcel. Go to my Facebook page here to see exactly how excited I was.
I didn’t imagine I’d ever turn this box set into a paperback book, but so many readers have asked if there is to be a physical copy of the book, and so I decided to have one made. Now, holding the tome in my sticky mitts, I’m so glad I did! It’s actually not as huge as I imagined – quite easy to pack for a holiday, for example, or give away as a present (wink, wink).
