I don't know about you but it has been a rough weekend and week. I am so grateful for the opportunity to sit down with you and share an interview with my dear friend and fellow author, Lucette Nel. Grab yourself a cup of tea, some scones fresh from the oven, and snuggle into a chair by the fire.
It is my great honor and pleasure to introduce to you, Lucette Nel.
Lucette is a coffee addicted work-in-progress daughter of the Lord Almighty. She's a mommy to a rambunctious boy and sweet baby girl and wife to her best friend and real-life hero. Along with a spoiled Pug, they make their home in Gauteng, the smallest of nine provinces in South Africa.
She works as a bookkeeper and uses every available second to create interesting characters in historical settings.
Thank you so much for joining us today, Lucy. The first thing I'm going to do is hit you up with my Fast Five.

Thanks so much for dropping by, Lucy, it's always fun to see a bit of your personality. Before we sign off I want to introduce you, our reader, to her latest release A Christmas Husband. I can confidently say, that THIS story is my ABSOLUTE favorite from her so far, and for less than a cup of coffee you can purchase it from Amazon here. It is worth every penny just to meet Benedict. That man is SWOONY. What girl can't fall for a Brit with a heart of gold? Check it out below.
It was one little lie told only to protect impoverished Naomi Stuart and her daughter. But when Benedict Ramsay -- a man she met fleetingly years before who should be in England -- arrives in town, all she'd carefully constructed threatens to crumble.
Benedict arrives a stranger in Noelle, hoping to confront the father who'd abandoned him. What he did not expect was to discover he was a married man ... to a woman he didn't even remember meeting. And against his will, Benedict warms to the idea of a ready-made family.
