Georgia Rose, Author
I’m a writer and the author of A Single Step, Before the Dawn and Thicker than Water, the novels that make up The Grayson Trilogy. I have also released a short story about a much loved favourite from the series which is called The Joker. After the trilogy it was time for something new, something different… so my latest novel, Parallel Lies, is now available! Exciting, huh!
A product of rural England the countryside setting is the theme running through my books. I love strong characters and developing them brings me joy. My characters are not just human though and, with a passion for animals, horses had to feature, along with a cat and one very special dog, although not necessarily all at the same time!
I’m also a proud member of Huntingdon Writers’ Group which has a brand new sparkly website right here if you fancy taking a stroll around it. And if you’re local, or even if you’re not, feel free to come along to join us. We’d love to meet you! 😀
Also, if you do live in Cambridgeshire, and use the library, my books are available to read for free from there, and if they are not in your branch you can order them in from another.
Here they are on the shelves of my fabulous mobile library!
You can get it anywhere right here…
‘For those who admire character-driven thrillers, who can handle brief but shocking violence, and who enjoy beautiful writing’ Barb Taub
‘My name is Madeleine, Madeleine Ross. It is a name chosen with thought and because it is classy, and that is what is needed here…’
Madeleine Ross has life exactly as she planned it.
Cosy cottage, friendly village, satisfying job.
Company… when she wants it.
It’s an enviable existence for an independent young woman, and one she’s keen to protect.
Enter Daniel – strong, dependable and a danger to everything she’s built. He’s not something she was looking for, but hearts can’t be controlled and maybe, just maybe he might be worth letting into hers.
But, all is not what it seems. Because Madeleine is hiding a lifetime of secrets. Deep secrets.
And they never stay buried for ever.
Her darkest secret returns, like the proverbial bad penny. He is her first love, shadowy, dangerous, the baddest of bad boys. No matter how far she runs, or how well she hides, she can never escape him.
Or her past.
Here he is, on her doorstep, with a proposition she is powerless to resist but which could devastate the future she hoped to have.
Can Madeleine satisfy the old love while keeping the new?
You can’t always get what you want but, desperate to preserve the life she has worked so hard for, Madeleine is willing to risk everything to prove that she can.
The Joker, a short story about a character from the Grayson Trilogy is now permanently free everywhere!

One of my highlights of 2014 was being asked to take part in the Brilliant Books Project at Seely School in Nottingham. The purpose of this project is to encourage reluctant readers with the aim of inspiring them to choose a book to take home to read. If you want to see how I got on and possibly view an embarrassing video of me (if you really have to!) then click on the link and enjoy!
And now I’ve been asked back 🙂
I had a terrific afternoon at Nottingham Free School earlier this year and you can read all about it on the official blog post right here!
So, onto the books! They have recently been described as mysterious and romantic adventure stories, which sounds good to me and you have your first chance to meet my heroine, Emma Grayson, in A Single Step.
Now I don’t like spoilers, not on the backs of books, not on trailers for films, so I found it tricky to write any sort of blurb, eventually ending up with…..
A Single Step – the first book in The Grayson Trilogy
‘The gun continued to be levelled at me. “Answer it…but don’t tell him I’m here or he’ll get to listen to you die.” That concentrated my mind considerably, and as I reached for my phone I came up with a plan…’
Emma Grayson was left devastated when her life was torn apart by tragedy and betrayal. Now someone believes it’s time for her to start again and puts an advert for a job through her door which leads her to the Melton Estate. Despite her desire for a solitary existence she finds herself discovering a life she could never have imagined, challenging her independence, her fears and her resistance to love.
This is the new cover, beautifully designed by SilverWood Books .
‘An entertaining romance with a fascinating twist. Highly recommended and a RED RIBBON winner.’ The Wishing Shelf Awards

The New Cover!
…he moved closer and slowly ran the point of his blade along my jaw line as he spoke softly, intimately, to me.
“So, you are Trent’s woman. Now that is very…appealing.” I glared back at him silently.
There are testing times ahead for Grayson and Trent as trouble threatens Melton Manor. When an attack is made against those on the estate, Grayson gets caught in the middle finding herself and those around her in terrible danger. Terrified when she thinks tragedy has struck again she fights to protect those she now views as family and, suffering bloodshed and pain, confronts her fears – both brought by the enemy and by the one she loves.

The Blurb – intriguing?
‘Vaguely aware of the tremor in my hand I ran my fingers up through the thick locks of his dark hair. Fear clutched at my heart as I sensed the icy tendrils of grief reaching for me once more.’
As the overseas action steps up a gear for Trent, Emma has her own challenges to face. Loyalties are tested and vengeance sought when she attracts interest from an unwelcome source.
Because someone is coming. Someone who has Emma in their sights.
Someone who will turn her life upside down… forever.

I’d like to end with these words from the Dedication in Reality Bites, a terrific book of short stories by some of independent literature’s most vibrant voices – twelve tales of hope rescued from the abyss…
The book was dedicated to “all those august and intrepid readers who ignore the supermarket shelves full of humdrum thrillers, tepid romances and laughable eroticas – the modern day ‘penny dreadfuls’ – and have the bravery and imagination to buy independently written, published and distributed books.
We, the Independent Authors, love you.”
