More About the Author

I grew up in a rambling house overlooking the Mediterranean. My half-French half-Italian governess Zula used to tell the most beautiful fairy stories. When I was seven we came to an agreement: for each story she told me, I would invent and tell her one of my own. That is how my love of writing began.

Later, at a convent school where French nuns endeavoured to teach us grammar, literature and maths, during lessons which bored me to tears I took to daydreaming and wrote short romantic stories to satisfy the needs of a fertile imagination. Having no inhibitions, I circulated them around the class, which made me very popular among my peers.

After I graduated with a BA in French literature from university, my international nomadic years started. I lived mainly in Switzerland, France and England, and holidayed in other Mediterranean countries like Italy, Greece and Spain. Once I met my husband, Nicholas, I settled in Kent and subsequently had little time for writing while bringing up two children and running my own business renovating rundown cottages.

Then, in my late fifties, I created room in my life for writing once more. Now, my husband and I spend half our time in our Georgian rectory in Kent and the rest in our home in the South of France, where I write overlooking breathtaking views of the ocean.

My first novel, Burning Embers, has been a work in progress for many years. It is set in Africa - my homeland - and is inspired by travels to Kenya. I am currently working on books set in Spain and Italy, which is a wonderful excuse to travel often and drink in passionate cultures and beautiful landscapes.

Well done, Hannah Fielding! What an incredible story :-)) You drew me in straight away with the setup on the ship! The adventure of Coral and Rafe started there and progressed to Kenya. Amazing setting descriptions that can only come from a true appreciation of that country. I loved your characters. They were easy to relate to yet they came in layers. And the only way I could discover the next layer was to keep reading. I felt the sizzle between Coral and Rafe early on and watched it grow into love, but along with the growing affection came a ton of conflict. And it just kept coming -- everything from secondary characters to gossip, mystery, doubt, mistrust, and more was thrown at Coral and Rafe to keep them apart. All of those things took the hero and heroine to the breaking point and all seemed lost. But the thing about true love, it doesn't give up. This book was expertly written to keep me wanting more. I would definitely read this author again!

This is the first book I have read by Hannah Fielding and I will start by saying it won't be my last. I won this book in a competition and what a prize it turned out to be. Hannah Fielding has a writing style which draws you into the book and immerses you in it. The charactersa are real and I felt I knew each and every one of them personally. The main female character Coral Sinclair is a strong character but she also has weaknesses and foibles, which prevents her from being the usual carboard cutout of a leading female in a romance.. The main male character and Coral's love interest is Rafe de Montfort again has many interesting sides to his character. This book is set in Kenya and I found myself being transported there, the sites, smells and sounds are so perfectly described. This is essentially a romance with a some measure of tension and mystery in it's pages. Is Rafe all he seems to be and what is in his past that cannot be revealed.What is the mystery of Coral's fathers final days. I cannot say too much without giving the game away, but this held the tension nicely throughout the book. This being a novel the path of true love does not run smoothly, but it maintained interest in the story until the end. The ending is somewhat predicatble but this does not detract from the book in any way. I would definitely recommend.

Hannah Fielding's first book Burning Embers takes you on an unforgettable journey to Africa in the 1970's. Her vivid descriptions of africa and beautiful love story will take you away. the story is about a very immature and sheltered young woman, Coral Sinclair, who returns to Africa following her father's death. There she meets Rafe de Monfort, a mysterious neighbor to whom she is attracted. They are drawn to each other but Rafe must face his personal demons and Coral must mature. The descriptions in this book are pictures painted with words. The love story sensual without being crude. The characters are well developed and the book totally enjoyable. If the sign of a good book is that it transports you to another time and place then you should enjoy this book

If you are looking for a romance that feels realistic and is set in a land of untamed beauty, well let me tell you about Burning Embers.

Burning Embers is a beautifully written contemporary historical romance set during the 1970's in Africa. The story is about Coral who is returning to Africa after her father dies. She meets a stepmother she didn't know she had as well as a very handsome but very worldly French neighbor.

Almost everyone Coral meets warns her away from becoming involved with Rafe and yet her heart tells her something different. While she is a bit naive and innocent she knows deep down that she wants a man who can paint pictures of her that show her very soul without ever having met her.

This is a slow but heart capturing romance with an undercurrent of mystery. The African sorcery that is weaved in adds another layer to the beautiful African land and the people who live there.

Burning Embers takes place in Africa in the 1970’s. The story starts out with Coral, mid-twenties, at sea on her way to Africa. She is escaping an engagement gone bad, and visiting her family home where she grew up. Coral meets a mysterious French man on ship, and then keeps running into him. His name is Rafe, and she is warned by many that he is a playboy; a womanizer. The warnings aren’t enough to keep Coral away, however, but should she have listened?

Coral wasn’t my favorite. I just didn’t connect with her. Some of her reactions just didn’t seem right. For instance, she ran into her ex-fiancé after a few months and she didn’t feel any emotion. That just doesn’t make sense. I understand that he wasn’t the right guy for her, she probably didn’t’ love him like she thought she did, but I still felt like she should have felt something, you know?

The story was told from Coral’s point of view, but one or two times it was told from Rafe’s. I felt like it wasn’t really necessary and kind of ruined the flow, especially since it was only his point of view one or two times.

Overall though, it was a good book. I read it in a few days, and for the most part it kept me interested. That’s why I am giving it 3 out of 5 stars.

My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
