Meeting Millie

My new series of sapphic romances set in Oxford kicks off with one of my favourite tropes – a friends-to-lovers romance. It introduces nerdy, lesbian Charlotte Albright and her very different friend, the exuberant Millie Banks – friends who adore each other and who are beautifully captured in the cover illustration by Leni Kauffman.

You’ll also meet other recurring characters like Charlotte’s overbearing mother, the perennially complex Nicola Albright KC, and sharp college friend Olivia. Meeting Millie, book 1 of the Oxford romance series, is available here.

Early reviews:

“From the very first page when Charlotte and Millie met I was hooked” – Sapphic Book Review

“I dare you not to fall in love with Millie and Charlotte” – Jude in the Stars

“I was not prepared to say goodbye to these lovely women.” – Women Using Words

“Millie is my boo” – Broome’s Books

Full blurb:

Oxford – celebrated city of dreaming spires and class warfare – is an ambition come true for lesbian, geeky, upper-middle-class Charlotte and straight, charismatic, working-class Millie.

Against the odds, theirs is an instant, best friendship. Forever.

Exuberant Millie is a breath of fresh air for polite Charlotte and a force of nature within the university’s hallowed walls. And they are going to be the best lawyers of their year and change the world.

But their world changes instead when things go queerly sideways, and they haven’t seen each other since.

Ten years on and Charlotte returns to where it all began. She has a new job at a prestigious law firm and Oxford is as beautiful as ever. She’s a safe distance from her overbearing barrister mother Nicola and three office floors from her snappy college mentor, Olivia.

Then Millie bounds around the corner wanting to be friends again and it’s as if the last decade never happened. Will it be different the second time around? Can they be friends again? Or will love and attraction change things?

Meeting Millie is a sapphic romance about the nature of friendship, how two people change over the years, and how they see themselves and each other.
