Meet Bryony: She’s a fun-loving, very single TV production assistant whose idea of sport is the Jimmy Choo sales scrum
Meet Jackson: Cycling’s bad boy superstar. Injured and out of racing this summer, without his training he’s looking for another distraction.
Bryony’s facing a triple whammy – her last single friend just named the day, her mother’s offering to have her eggs frozen, and the guy she’s loved from afar, forever, just got hitched. So she’s more than happy to accept the offer of a totally out of character but seriously steamy one night of no-strings fun. Especially when the guy in question is so attractive he even looks good in Lycra!
Jackson’s on the look out for a new career but if the opportunity to work on TV means a fortnight with the most uptight woman in the world, he’d rather not bother. He never goes in for seconds – and who in their right mind would head off in a camper van with a woman who irons her knickers?
Add in a tandem (yes, a tandem) and fast forward to double trouble for a summer neither of them will ever forget!
‘High Heels and Bicycle Wheels’ is a must read for all sexy romance addicts.
If you read Jane Linfoot’s last novel you will recognise Bryony Marshall. She is the sister of Brando the hero of ‘The Right Side of Mr Wrong’. Bryony, a production assistant meets the celebrity guest of her latest show in a most revealing way. Jackson a sexy cyclist, super stud proves hard for the feisty heroine to ignore despite her controlling nature and hard-won independence. The chemistry between the two is rapid and leads to the first of many sensuous encounters in a novel that is teeming with sensuality.
I love the realistic touches of humour. Bryony and Jackson’s often painful soul-searching reveals their complexities and vulnerabilities. This insight into their psyche makes them likeable even when they behave badly. The story’s originality is refreshing, as is the whistle-stop tour of England’s coast and countryside, making this a great holiday read.
If you like your love scenes prolific and fiery and enjoy a nail-biting, romantic ending ‘High Heels and Bicycles’ is for you.

About the Author – Jane Linfoot
I’m Jane Linfoot, and I write fun, flirty fiction, with feisty heroines and a bit of an edge.
I live in a mountain kingdom in Derbyshire, England, where my family and pets are kind enough to ignore the domestic chaos – happily, we’re in walking distance of a supermarket. For me, writing romance is cool because I get to wear pretty shoes instead of wellies. I love hearts, flowers, happy endings, all things vintage, most things french. When I’m not on Facebook, and can’t find an excuse for shopping, I’ll be walking, or gardening. On days when I want to be really scared, I ride a tandem.
Today is release day for C J Azevedo’s Without Doubt
‘Ava Sterling is tough and the most straight-laced girl you will ever meet. Her family and her past have managed to alter her future permanently and she has no desire to allow anyone else into her life or her heart for fear of rejection or further altering. Ava is alone in the world with the exception of the grandest responsibility she did not create on her own but on her own she will carry for the rest of her life.
Declan James is a MMA fighter, party all night kind of guy. Responsibility is nowhere to be found in his life or so he allows everyone around him to believe. Coming from wealth and a carefree lifestyle, Declan gets what he wants, always. And what he wants is Ava. In his pursuit of getting what he wants, Ava in his bed, his plan changes quickly without his consent. Against his plans of being the next hot bachelor to cross the tabloids as he makes his way to being the Ultimate Light Heavyweight Champion, Declan falls in love. He falls in love without hesitation and without doubt.
Neither Declan nor Ava are aware that fate has inconveniently intertwined their lives forever. Will they be able to survive the aftermath of the truth?’
Interested here’s an excerpt:
‘I start restocking the beer fridge when I get the feeling someone is watching me. I turn slowly to take in the people in the bar and check for anything suspicious. When my sight reached the back of the room, I found the set of eyes that made me stir. Declan. Deep blue-green eyes set just below dark furrowed brows. The piercing in his right brow shone under the low overhead lighting above his table and made me want to take it between my teeth. Our gazes connect and he doesn’t look away. The girl is still sitting on his lap and running her skanky hand up and down his thigh. She has no idea that he’s been staring at me for at least the last thirty seconds. Not being able to handle the stare contest any longer, I smile at him. He doesn’t smile back and it really doesn’t bother me. It probably should, but I have a feeling that it’s not a negative emotion that makes him continue to stare blankly.’

C J Azevedo:
CJ has lived all over the state of California, Central, South, North and finally landing back somewhere in the middle. She married the boy she fell for when she was only eleven years old and together they have two beautiful heathens. CJ obviously loves to read and write. She can watch the Giant’s play baseball but hates football. She bakes when she’s sad, runs when she’s mad and dances when she’s happy (even if she can’t find a rhythm to save her life) If you’re looking for her and can’t seem to find her, look on the staircase, it’s her favorite spot to read.
