Bookouture signs two romantic comedies from bestselling author Carol Mason
We’re thrilled to announce that Commissioning Editor Lucy Frederick has acquired world all languages rights in two fresh, warm, hilarious romantic comedies for the romance lovers everywhere by number one bestselling author Carol Mason.
The first of Carol’s stories will publish in summer 2024 and is a witty enemies-to-lovers tale of two single parents united in their determination to prevent their children from eloping after a whirlwind romance – but divided by their passionate hatred for one another… Set against the glamorous backdrops of Athens and Santorini as they endeavour to stop the wedding, Moira and Frank’s sexy, sizzling love story unexpectedly ignites…
‘From the very first page of Carol’s gorgeous new novel, I knew I was going to fall head over heels for Moira and Frank’s love story – but I couldn’t have guessed just how fast she’d have the tears of laughter streaming down my face too! Carol’s writing is laugh-out-loud, heart-warming and captivating. She creates characters you instantly care for – even when you want to shake them – and sets her stories in the most beautiful and inspiring settings. Carol’s love stories are timeless and will appeal to romance lovers of all ages – I can’t wait for our readers to get their hands on her gorgeous, relatable, witty rom coms.’
‘Bookouture’s vigorous presence in publishing has long impressed me, so I’m thrilled that my first romantic comedy in this new direction for me as a writer has found such an enthusiastic home here. I can’t wait to work with Lucy and the team, and see their vision for my novels come to life. Exciting times indeed!’
