Product description

Product Description

When Gabrielle “Bree” Valentine awoke in a hospital bed with a newborn baby, she centered herself and rebuilt. Bree didn’t think about her mental breakdown, lost memories, or the features of a stranger emerging daily in the face of the son she is raising alone. Five years later, on a weekend in the Hamptons, a chance encounter with a man unlike any other jars her—bone deep. Daniel Hawthorne Baird II, wealthy, dangerous, British aristocrat, gravitates to Bree like caviar on crostini. In his relentless obsession with Bree, their lives entwine despite Bree’s resistance. With the unconditional support of friends she calls ‘family’, Bree confronts the most difficult questions of her life. Unearthing the painful mysteries behind who fathered her child, who the real Daniel Baird is, and the irrepressible desire driving her towards a man destined to be the end of them both.

Author Bio:

Nell E. S. Douglas has possessed a deep, abiding love for written words since childhood. The transition from reader, to writer, was a natural one. Her first stories, penned on the lined pages of class notebooks, were inspired by her mother’s poetry and epic tales of travel, and a professorial inquisitiveness inherited from her father. Following college in Florida, Nell exited the world of pure imagination, and entered the one of business, successfully establishing a career in sales, and developing a cup-a-day habit (of coffee). Today, Nell writes everything from story ideas to essays during the spaces in-between domestic goddessing, and contributing as a managing partner to a thriving small business. Nell resides in Florida, with her husband and their children, passing on the traditions of her mother, and sinking her feet in the sand whenever possible.

Her favorite books are Pride and Prejudice, and To Kill a Mockingbird. Her favorite movies are Gladiator, anything by Scorcese, The Time Traveller's Wife, and Bridesmaids.

What is In the Land of Milk and Honey about?

It’s a love story, at it’s heart. But there are mysteries to solve first. It takes off from there—that question—who fathered Bree’s son? True to life, answers aren’t always answers.

What is your writing background?

For all relevant intents and purposes, this book. I’d done minor copy work, previously. And before that, loads of poetry and short stories in my youth.

Why would someone want to read In the Land of Milk and Honey?

The characters. The ‘family’ surrounding Bree, as she struggles to solve her life’s riddle. Who wouldn’t want friends like that? The mysteries (more than one). And then there is Daniel Baird, of course. Just typing his name give me chills! Not all bad ones. Daniel’s character emerges in a visceral way. The son of a British Lord has that effect.

Who will like your book?

I think non-readers will enjoy it. But I think readers of romance, adult and new, will enjoy it, and people who enjoy mystery, intrigue. It’s an escape. If you’ve read both Gillian Flynn and E. L. James, I hope I’m not being forward when I say: swipe right—it’s a match.

Where can In the Land of Milk and Honey be purchased?

Amazon Kindle EBooks. Follow me on Instagram (@nellesdouglas), Twitter (@nellesdouglas), for forthcoming updates on print, Barnes & Noble, Google, and iBooks.

What is your inspiration as a writer?

News articles. Other books. Movies. And really well-crafted mini series that allow characterizations to unfold more than exposit. Just overhearing conversations at the grocery store can inspire a dialogue or dilemma. I’ll add this quote:

No one can write decently who is distrustful of the reader’s intelligence or whose attitude is patronizing.

– E. B. White

I'm confident of the people who read our genre—women who read about easy love, sexy love, complex love. I’m one of them. At no turn do I underestimate them. Reversing E. B.’s quote, I hope in conclusion I've written it well, for them.
