Happy with the Millionaire is doing well

It seems that people who read Rosettis Book 1, “Loving the Celebrity Chef” are also enjoying Rosettis Book 2, “Happy with the Millionaire”. Hap’s story was the first one I wrote and it was inspired by a pair of $2 Christmas earrings that had garnered a lot of flattering comments. The earrings didn’t make it as the story evolved but proved that inspiration can come from anywhere.

My husband and I were transporting his latest boat acquisition from Rockhampton, Queensland to Albury, New South Wales and the boat’s trailer bearings had problems.

We were sitting in the carpark of the local service station in Moree, NSW waiting for the doors to open so we could fix the trailer and complete the next 900 kilometres (560 mi) to get home, preferably that day.

Daydreaming, I conjured up Merry, an events organiser in Sydney and the reclusive paraplegic IT Millionaire. In the end, a business called Merry… something only worked at Christmas time. Merry Birthdays or Merry Occasions did not quite convey the image that I wanted. So ‘Merry’ became ‘Hermione’ with initials that spelled HAPPY who ran Happy Occasions. It took me another decade to find time to write the story of Zach and Hermione.

I hope you enjoy it.

Millionaire final

We went for the pool scene for the cover on this one because that’s the scene that triggered the events that followed.

Gotta love five star reviews.

“Loving the Celebrity Chef” has attracted five star reviews and I’m tickled pink! And I’d like to send out a great big thank you to those reviewers.

This is the first book in the Rosetti series and I was so hoping that readers would love it so they’d want to tune into Book 2, due for release in October, and then books 3 to 5 further down the track.

Here’s a little of what the reviewers have been saying:

The first thing you will notice in this novel is the massive attention to detail that Ms Kerr has included. French, Italian, the Sydney waterfront and wider areas, backstage at a high end restaurant… it has it all!! Even oyster farming. Each scene is crafted to be a feast to the senses – sights, smells, tastes are all thoroughly explored. (BV)

Caenys Kerr is a master of tangled plots that make it hard to put this story aside. The complex storyline, along with the quirky and lovable characters of “Loving the Celebrity Chef” were twisted into an incredible tale, which takes place in Australia. The author’s knowledge of places, wines and foods made the tale and its ending nothing short of miraculous. (KA)

I tend not to binge read (or watch) anything! However, I could not put ‘Loving the Celebrity Chef’ down! I found myself saying ‘one more chapter, just one more chapter!’ Before I knew it I had finished, and I’m now eagerly awaiting Book 2 of the Rossetti series. Thanks Ms. Kerr, I can’t wait to read about what happens next! (Amazon Customer)

It is a rollicking tale – I could not put this book down! I really liked the main characters and it was hard to say goodbye to them at the end of the book. Excellent to see that there is another book in the series coming out. I read this over a rainy weekend so the vivid scenery of Sydney and the Blue Mountains made me feel like I was on holiday. I thoroughly recommend it to romance readers everywhere! (B)

If you haven’t had the chance to read it yet, you can find it at your favourite reading site through Books2Read  or from the publisher’s website, Passion in Print.

It’s taken a bit to get here and I have to thank family, friends, beta readers, editors and publisher for making sure that this book saw the light of day beyond the window of my study.

PIP have the next in the Rosettis series already and have it slated for release in September. First, you should get to know Nonna, Vincent, Angelique and Co before Hermione’s story becomes available.

One of the beta readers who read both stories wanted more, more, more of the Rosettis and so Book three is a work in progress. I hope you’ll feel the same way. For now, though, try Loving the Celebrity Chef.

Cover Reveal: Loving the Celebrity Chef

Loving the Celebrity Chef Final Front Cover 3 28 2017

Loving the Celebrity Chef is due for release on May 21 and will be available on the  Passion in Print website first off and then Amazon after that. This is the first of the Rosettis books and I’m thrilled to introduce this family to my readers!!

Just to let you know what it’s about:

A holiday fling with an Australian celebrity chef might just end up being more than French tourist, Angelique, can mix into her Michelin-bound delicacies.
Angelique is on vacation when she is left destitute by a thief at a backpackers’ hotel and is forced to find work. She is hired as a chef at Rosettis restaurant where Vincent is the Head Chef.
Vincent is wary of the French dessert chef not just because his celebrity status attracts attention from total strangers, but because he didn’t get to vet her qualifications before she landed in his kitchen courtesy of his mother and grandmother. But she is as alluring as her desserts and he just can’t get enough of her.
Confident that her troubles in Australia will soon be behind her, Angelique keeps her focus firmly on earning enough money to get home to France and back to building her career. She hasn’t counted on her holiday fling with the celebrity chef becoming something that might threaten her plans.
