My new book, The Only Exception, is out today! #PublicationDay #RomanceReads

What? Another one?!

The Only Exception (Love in the Comptons 2) by Claire Huston book cover

The Only Exception is out today – ebook only 99p/99c!

Today is publication day for my third book, The Only Exception. It’s also the second book in my Love in the Comptons series; the first book is Art and Soul.

Love in the Comptons series

The Love in the Comptons books are light-hearted, uplifting modern love stories. The books can be read in any order and as standalones, but they do share locations and characters.

The Only Exception is available in ebook and paperback. The ebook is on Amazon for 99p/99c and if you have Kindle Unlimited it’s free to download. The paperback is available everywhere so you can order it from your preferred online or high street book store.

Please help me spread the word!

I’d be very very grateful if you could help share news of the book’s release on social media or add the book to your to-read shelf on Goodreads. Thank you 🙂

Here’s the blurb and a bit about the blog tour which starts today and runs until 14th June.


The blurb:

Lucinda Green knows something is missing from her life. But what? Her catering business is enjoying modest success and she loves her cosy house, even if she does have to share it with her irritating ex-fiancé.

Whatever’s making her unsettled and edgy, Lucinda’s certain that a lack of romance isn’t the problem. How could it be when she doesn’t believe in true love?

But Lucinda’s beliefs are shaken by a series of electric encounters with Alex Fraser, a newly notorious actor who gradually proves himself to be infuriatingly funny and smart, as well as handsome.

Not that any of that matters. Because Lucinda doesn’t believe in all that ‘The One’ nonsense. That’s the rule.

But doesn’t every rule have an exception?


The blog tour!

Thank you to all the lovely bloggers taking part in the tour for The Only Exception. Special thanks to the fantastic Rachel Gilbey at Rachel’s Random Resources who organized the tour.
