BVC Welcomes Kelly McClymer
Written by BVC News Editor   

 Join us in welcoming Kelly McClymer to Book View Café

Kelly McClymer fell in love with Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White as a child. Her most prized possession is her copy of The Complete Tales of the Brothers Grimm. These are the stories which gripped our ancestors as they huddled around the fire at night, which taught countless children to persevere through hardship and succeed against the odds. Her favorite fairytale remains “The Six Swans” — where a young sister must not speak a word for six years in order to save her brothers from their stepmother's evil spell.

Kelly started out writing short science fiction, moved on to historical romance for a series of seven Victorian set romance novels following the unconventional Fenster siblings, and now writes Young Adult fantasy novels... and whatever else takes her authorial fancy.

Read her BVC blogs, “Writing in the Digital Age.”

Her first Book View Café ebook is The Fairy Tale Bride, Book One of the Once upon a Wedding series.

 The Fairy Tale Bride

Once Upon a Wedding: Book One

Kelly McClymer

Miranda Fenster was known as the Fairy Tale Miss during the one disastrous London season that convinced her she would never have a happily-ever-after. But when her brother's love match is thwarted by the impossibly proper Duke of Kerstone, Miranda sets off to convince the duke to champion her brother's cause for love. Unfortunately, he is too proper to consider love a suitable reason for marriage, and too proper not to marry Miranda when they find themselves compromised. Now, Miranda has a second chance for happily-ever-after, if she can uncover her new husband’s darkest secret.

Originally published by Kensington Zebra Ballad, October 2000.

 Sweet Home Carolina

Patricia Rice

Frustrated divorcee Amy Warren is striving to fix her life by helping her home town buy the local mill, and then she can put her Plan for the Rest of Her Life in action by buying a rundown cottage and turning it into her heart’s desire.

Amy’s Plan shatters when Jean-Jacques St. Etienne arrives with loads of cash, charisma, and expertise, with every intention of buying the mill for its designs and then abandoning the community. A European playboy, he has no interest in anything except staying occupied so he needn’t remember the tragedy haunting him.

As mild-mannered Amy and dashing Jacques play a cat-and-mouse game that madly leads to love and can only end in heartbreak, their affair affects the existence of an entire town.
