Members of Rugby Cafe Writers have been busy publishing books over the past month.
Bella Osborne has written The Promise of Summer. This was originally published as a four-part serial. This is the complete story in one package.
Ruby’s life is about to change for ever…
After years of dating losers, cheats and one guy who did something unrepeatable to her kettle, Ruby has all but given up on romance. But then a stranger sits next to her on a train to London and explains his plan to propose to the woman of his dreams. Maybe true love does exist after all?
When the man accidentally leaves the engagement ring behind, Ruby is determined to save the day. But she hasn’t counted on fellow passenger Curtis stepping in and insisting he should be the one to track the stranger down.
As summer closes in, the unlikely pair make a promise to reunite the ring with its owner. But can they find their own happy ever after along the way?
The absolutely perfect summer read you’ve been waiting for! Fans of Cathy Bramley, Katie Fforde and Milly Johnson will be totally hooked!

Philip Gregge has written Denua.
Quick as a lightning flash, I loosed off my first arrow. It was longer than I was used to and the pull was much heavier. But here, this was no disadvantage, for the fighting was close, and all that was needed was what I had, quickness and accuracy. I had already notched my second when I saw the first hit. I blazed away, I swear I had never shot so swiftly till that day… and nine of the ten arrows which found their marks were mine.
Meet Denua, a warrior woman of royalty, courage and faith. Set against the historical backdrop of the decline of Rome and the birth of England and France, Denua leads brave men into battle, travels across ancient Britain and Gaul, meets other intriguing travellers and obstacles along the way and rescues the original ‘Princess in the Tower’. Her gripping tale is filled with adventure, romance, pain and hope.
In his debut book, Philip Gregge expertly weaves historical facts with fictional characters so real, it’s often impossible to tell the difference.
“A vivid and well-constructed tale, a pacey blend of history and invention. The author holds the reins lightly with no trace of self-importance, treating weighty matters with seriousness and humour.”Andy Raine, Author of ‘Celtic Illustrations’
