Diana Thompson released her stunning debut romance novel Winterflood's Passion in 2015. Raunchy, immensely readable and set in Bowral in the surprisingly steamy Southern Highlands of New South Wales, the book created a loyal fandom hungry for more. Diana always knew the characters had lives larger than what she provided in that first work, and so she set about writing a follow-up - Unbridled Passion - the next book in the Bowral series.
Mild mannered award-winning jeweller by day, author of steamy romance novels by night, Diana’s first novel - affectionately dubbed ‘the Bowral bodice-ripper’- tells the story of a romance between a beautiful and talented young widow, Charlotte Ranleigh and Daniel Winterflood, an English art entrepreneur and inveterate playboy.
Readers of Winterflood's Passion will remember Nick Delaney, the unlucky vet who missed out on heroine Charlotte. As a hero, Nick is everything a romance reader could wish for - sensitive, gorgeous, kind to animals and a professional vet who’s at the top of his game. But when Jordana Talbot arrives in town, fleeing a past of her own, Nick’s life as Bowral’s most eligible bachelor takes a dramatic turn.
As one reader put it, “I have never thought of myself as a romance reader, but after reading Winterflood’s Passion, my mind has been changed. I can truly say that a love story has never interested me quite like this one. Each character is so sincere and realistic, and you can really see the love and effort that Diana has put in to developing such intriguing and individual characters”.
Diana has created two richly descriptive, highly explicit, seductive novels in Winterflood’s Passion and Unbridled Passion. Both books are veritable collisions of romance and unbridled lust that draws the reader in from the very first page.
