Introducing Marian Cohen – the matriarch of Templeton Cove

When I started writing Finding Justice, the first book in my ongoing romance series with Harlequin Superromance, Marian quickly pushed herself forward as Templeton Cove’s “boss”. She’s in her sixties, funny, wise, a little bit naughty and very, very astute.
And an absolute joy to write!
So much so, I am pretty sure she has appeared in seven of the eight books in the series.
She is the glue that holds Templeton’s community together – the oracle to whom the residents, young and old, come for advice…even if the advice they receive isn’t always welcomed at first.
Marian came to the Cove under a cloud of speculation about five years before the first book opens. A stranger to the Templeton, she arrived with long-standing resident George and they soon married. No one knows much about her background and no one dare ask! She’s loving, attentive and a bulldog to anyone who upsets her brood…in other words, anyone she cares for in the Cove.
It’s a dream come true that I’ve written a series so many readers enjoy and still ask for more stories. The Templeton Cove Stories are a mix of mainstream romance and romantic suspense that link existing characters and also new characters I introduce, as and when.
Book 8 of the series, A STRANGER IN THE COVE is really Marian’s story – it was the right time to fill in the blanks for the devoted fans of the series. I am so excited for this book’s release!
If you enjoy A STRANGER IN THE COVE, why not catch up with Marian and all her fabulous antics in the first seven books in the series. You’ll love her as much as me – promise!

For Mac, Kate Harrington is the most tempting kind of distraction. But their sizzling connection comes with a side of suspicion for Kate, who doesn’t trust this brooding stranger in her town. Mac arrived with no plans to stay, but as he falls for Kate, he wonders how he could ever possibly leave.

  1. This sounds like an amazing read!

  2. I love the book-I love strong heroines! My questions for you are: do you ever analyze the differences between English and American behavio(u)rs when preparing to write, and were you a fan of the tv show “Cougar Town”? (If you’re a wine drinker, it’s a must.)


Get carried away with love!
