Sharing not one, but two new ‘Gang-Lit’ books with you today!

The Blog Tour for Risking It All  isn’t going to begin until much closer to the publishing date, so for now I can only whet your appetite with a first look at the great cover art which is accompanying the story.

My thanks as always goes out to the lovely Vicky and the team at Aria Fiction for their great taste in authors and to the folks at NetGalley, without whom I wouldn’t get to read all these excellent new stories!

As we are still about three months away from the long awaited official publication date, you can pre-order your copy of Risking It All, from either Amazon UK, or Amazon US, for auto-delivery to your Kindle on January 23rd 2020


Cover Image of the book 'Risking It All' by author Stephanie HarteGemma is about to risk it all for the man she loves. Will she survive entering into a life of crime?

Gemma has always been there for Nathan. He’s the love of her life and she made a commitment to him, one she’d never consider breaking… until smooth-talking gangster Alfie Watson comes into their lives and changes everything.

Alfie doesn’t care about true love – he wants Gemma, and the gangster always gets what he wants. When Nathan ends up owing him money, Alfie gets payback by recruiting Gemma to carry out a jewellery heist. To everyone’s surprise, she’s a natural. Until Alfie forgives Nathan’s debt, she has no choice but to accompany the gangster on more and more daring heists – even though one slip-up could cost her everything.

Nathan might have fallen under Alfie’s spell, but it doesn’t take long for him to realise that he needs to save Gemma from his own mistakes if their marriage is to have any chance of surviving. But when that means taking on the East End’s most notorious gangster at his own game, will he find himself up to the challenge?

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
