Wild Wales
by Patricia Evans Cox

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE:   Lesbian Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Aisling Moss is balanced on the crystal edge of success as one of the most sought-after wedding planners in London…until one ill-advised move brings her career crashing down around her feet like a toppled tower of champagne flutes. The next day, a letter from a family solicitor arrives at her flat, and she has to choose between picking up the pieces of her career in London or taking the next flight to Wales to honor the wishes of someone she loves.

Finn Morgan was forced to end her fighting career after an injury sidelined her dreams of being a star in the cutthroat world of professional women’s boxing. Her job as a short-order cook in a Brooklyn diner certainly doesn’t compare, but it also doesn’t require her to think about what she wants to do with her life. Sleeping with her boss’s wife and spending quality time with a punching bag is all she needs, until the day she comes home to find a letter from across the pond, surrounded by a pool of warm sunlight, on her entry table.

Once in Wales, long-kept secrets and unexpected demands surface for both Finn and Aisling, and they are forced to make hard decisions about their futures: Do they return to rebuild the lives they had, or take a chance on love in wild, windswept Wales?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT:


Aisling spoke slowly, more to herself than to Finn. Her voice trailed off, but she snapped back to reality after a few seconds and looked back at Finn across the kitchen.

“I kissed the wrong person, I guess.”

Finn waited for her to go on, but she didn’t.

 “How do you lose an entire career from one kiss?”

Aisling smiled, letting the silence speak for her.

“Oh shit,” Finn said slowly. “You didn’t kiss the groom, did you?”

She laughed and pulled the pen out of her hair. “Um, no...not the groom.”

“Then it can’t be that bad. What’s the big deal?”


Aisling ran her fingers through her hair and loosened the waves until they fell over her shoulders. “It was the bride.”

“Wow.” Finn shook her head, smiling, and folded what was left of the charred cardboard box into the trash. “I did not see that one coming.”

“I thought not. Most people don’t.”

Finn smiled and stepped into the living room, then leaned back in as soon as she passed the doorframe.

“This fire is beautiful. Did you do that while I was folding myself into the bathtub?”

Aisling didn’t answer, just walked slowly into the room, where a cheerful fire crackled and warmed the air. When they’d walked into the house an hour ago, it had been empty and dark, but now the entire room looked gilded, as if the firelight had melted into gold over every surface. Once again, the hearth had been swept clean and even the dented copper bucket next to the fireplace had been filled with freshly cut wood. Aisling stared into the flames, then slowly raised her eyes over Finn’s head and up to the ceiling.

“What are you looking at?” Finn said, following her gaze to the cracked plaster ceiling arched above her head, secured at the apex with an unfinished wooden beam.

“Nothing,” Aisling replied, her eyes scanning the room, half expecting to see the golden orbs of light she’d seen in the castle. But there was nothing. “Just a memory, I guess.”

AUTHOR Interview:



How did you come up with your book title and the name of the series? 

That’s a great question because I know it’s an unusual name. I love Wales and have been there several times, mostly to Cardiff around the windswept south coast.

There’s always something magical in the air, as if ghosts of heroines past are lurking around every turn. Castle ruins and ancient churches surround you, and at night, when all you can hear is the crashing of the sea onto the rocks, it’s almost as if they whisper stories still held in thier walls. 

Wales is magic, but it’s wild. The wind, the people, even the landscape is wild and unpredictable at every turn. Like the book, actually.


What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever done to research for your book?

I hiked through a Welsh field at sundown with my sleeping pack and spent the night in the 15th century abandoned castle that became a central feature in the book. It was just a ruin, and as I lay on my back on the stone floor of the great room, I looked up at the stars and the jagged edges of the walls that reached into the sky…I knew that had to be the setting for Wild Wales.

I knew if I got out of my own way and listened to the Welsh landscape around me, it would be amazing.

I was right.


Do you have any unique talents or hobbies?

I am passionate about travel and treading lightly on the earth, and three years ago, I gave up my house and ninety percent of what I owned, built a tiny house, (220 sq.feet) and set it in the middle of the forest.

It’s honestly the best thing I’ve ever done. I have the opportunity to travel because I’m not supporting mountains of material possessions, and I have the silence I need around me to hear the stories as they unfold in my mind. 

If you’d like to see pictures of the tiny house and my travels, follow me on Instagram @tomboyinkslinger.


What is your favorite character from Wild Wales, and why?

I think my favorite character is Finn, one of the two lead characters, and a retired Cuban semi-pro women’s boxer from Brooklyn. 

She’s tough and has risen from even tougher beginnings, but it’s her that shows Aisling, one of the privileged London elite, how to really fall in love. 


How can we contact you and find out more about your books?

First of all, I appreciate that you want to read them! 

My books are available at Barnes & Noble online, as well as amazon.com or any of the major booksellers. 

You can also read some of my unpublished and sometimes more controversial work on my website at: www.tomboyinkslinger.com.

And I always love followers on Goodreads and Instagram, and interact with readers frequently. 
Feel free to get in touch!


Is there anything else you’d like to say?

The most important thing I want to say is thank you to the readers. I appreciate your loyalty and the time you devote to sinking into my stories.

They really are something that you and I create together, and I am forever grateful for your support.
