*Cover Reveal and Release Date* READY TO LOVE AGAIN

Hi folks!

I’m here to share with you the most stunning of my book covers. Ashley Byland, creator of the cover for NOTHING LIKE THE FIRST TIME, has worked her magic again. She has brought Alyssa and Chase to life. Where I gave them life in the pages, she gave them faces to their names. And here they are… I present you READY TO LOVE AGAIN


Here’s the front for you to see more clearly how stunning it truly it is…

RTLA cover

I am so excited for the release of this book, which will be on April 14th 2015, published by Limitless Publishing.

For Alyssa Young, life has never been easy. But the hardest thing of all was two years ago when her husband Ethan committed suicide…

Moving town was her only option, she had to get out of the town where she grew up and all the buildings and people reminded her of what she had lost.

She found a new job at Emerging Butterfly Publishing House and that was where she met editor, Chase Williams.

Although she has no romantic interest in him, he pursues her…

Of course he’s good looking. He’s also smart, funny, and she loves spending time with him. But Alyssa can’t put the past to rest.

He wants Alyssa to open up to him and fall in love with him the way he fell for her the moment he met her.

Can Chase convince Alyssa that the time is right and she’s ready to love again?

*This book is The Sweet Romance Series Book 2 but can be read as a stand-alone novel*

Read What Others Are Saying on Goodreads About My New Release:




Author: Keren Hughes

Publication Date: May 20th 2014

Publishers: Limitless Publishing

I have had some wonderful reviews on Goodreads so far. Here are some of the comments by readers: 

“Fantastic book! The Characters are amazing! They work so well together and compliment one another! Carly and Grey’s story is one filled with love, heartache, a little turmoil, redemption, and a couple of obstacles thrown into the mix! This book has all you could want in story and more!” – Nikkii Tobler.

“The storyline was great, as most books in this genre seem to have the characters meet, get together, some drama happens to split them up, they try to get over each other, realise they belong with each other, get back together….whereas this starts after a split and then they get together and nothing gets in the way, and the characters are understanding with each other when the drama happens, it’s kinda refreshing. 

I can’t wait to read more from Keren 🙂 Well done on another great book.” – Lisa Harwood.

“This book really makes you believe in love forever and happy endings.” – Kay Burnsworth.

“If I had to sum it up with one word, I would say magical. This book has everything you need in a romance novel, love, heartbreak and even a little suspense. I would recommend this book to everyone and I will” – Vikki Love.

“A beautiful story about how first love can conquer all,no matter the time that passes there is true first love out there. You just need to be patient and not give up and no matter what obstacles that you are faced with love can conquer all in the end.” – Sam Morris

So, it seems that people are enjoying it so far. Why don’t you grab a copy and see for yourself.

*Cover Reveal* NOTHING LIKE THE FIRST TIME my new NA Contemporary Romance!

 NLTFT Banner


Nothing Like the First Time

By: Keren Hughes

Limitless Publishing

Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

Coming May 20th, 2014


Carly Summers and Greyston Sterling were each other’s first kiss, first sexual experience, first love, first everything…

They were a match made in Heaven, that was, until Grey took a job as a freelance photographer which took him to the other side of the world. When it came down to a choice between his career and his girl – he chose his career.

Now, 10 years later, Grey’s back in town and wants to see if they can rekindle what they had all those years ago. Carly has had relationships but nothing that lasted. No one ever compared to Grey.

But how can they rekindle things if he’s engaged to somebody else?

 Lonely Woman in Bedroom


“So your career comes before me?” I asked, already knowing the answer. “At least look me in the eye and answer me, it’s the least you owe me Grey.”

“I don’t want to have to choose Carls,” he said as he caught my eye. “I just don’t want to miss out on the experience of a lifetime. I get to see amazing things, capture them on film while I experience the different cultures.”

“Just answer the question Grey – you want your career more than you want me.” I started to cry again, I had wanted to get through this without crying but I was fooling myself when I thought that.

“I’m sorry Carls,” he said as he took my hand into his. “I love you, I always will. But this is the opportunity of a lifetime, it may never happen again. I need to do this. I’m not making a conscious choice to put you second but if you weren’t so stubborn, you’d come with me like I asked.”

 Grey Quote


About the Author:

Keren lives in the UK and is an avid bookworm; she has been since she read things like Black Beauty, What Katy Did and The Hobbit as a child. Her first real memories of reading are the summers she used to lie on her bed and re-read What Katy Did and What Katy Did Next.

Over the years she has come to realise that she is a bit OCD about books. They have to be in perfect condition without the slightest bit of damage.

She is a book reviewer and has been for the past 18 months or so.

The idea for Stolen came to her one day but she never thought she’d actually write it let alone publish it. If it wasn’t for her author friend Kira Saito, the idea would still be stuck in her head not on paper. But constant love and support from Kira is why you are now able to read Stolen.

Stolen is her first novel but now that she’s written one, she knows she needs to write more. There will be one sequel, called Freed which will be from Bodhi’s POV. This will be set a couple of years on.

Then, the plan is for her to write either NA or Adult Contemporary Romances. She has a big crush on Lady Antebellum’s music at the moment and their songs have inspired a few book ideas.

Keren loves hearing from her readers and if you want to contact her, you can do so at any of the following places:

I Am On Cloud Nine…Again!

Do  you guys remember back in August 2013 I had some exciting news? If not, I’ll remind you. August 10th 2013 was the day I signed a contract with Limitless Publishing for my YA Paranormal Romance, Stolen


Well, now I have more very exciting news.  On March 17th 2014, I signed a contract with Limitless Publishing for my new NA Contemporary Romance, Nothing Like The First Time.


I am so excited because this book means a lot to me. Since writing this book, I guess I realised as much as I love Stolen, my head and my heart don’t belong in YA or in Paranormal. I think I’ve found my ‘niche’ in NACR and that makes me pretty happy. People who have read Stolen and Nothing Like The First Time are saying that my words flowed more freely in NLTFT and I know in my heart that they are right. 

If you want to know more about NLTFT and maybe add it to your Goodreads TBR, then click the link:



Thank you to everyone who supports me and I hope you enjoy reading my stories. I am working on a new one right now called ‘Ready To Love Again’. I’ll tell you more when I can. For now, I hope you’re looking forward to my cover reveal for NLTFT, I know I am.


A Huge Thank You!

I want to take a minute to thank a few people. Firstly, to the four girls who attended my first book signing with me. Ruth, Laura, Sue and Sam, I want to say thank you for being there to support me. Thank you for believing in me and for boosting my confidence on the day of the signing. Suffice to say, my nerves were frazzled and it was you four that kept me going. I had a wonderful day, both at the signing and at our pub lunch afterwards. Thank you also for your constant support during the writing process and the lead-up to being published, also for your support after publication; for reading, reviewing and for loving Stolen. I am humbled by the support that you girls constantly show me, even now as I aim to get my new NA Contemporary Romance published. I hope you will continue to love my books.



(Me and the girls at Leasowes with some current students and the Head Master)

A massive thanks must also go out to a lot of people, in fact, too many to mention. I don’t want to miss anyone out, so if you are reading this post, it means I want to thank YOU! I am honoured and humbled by everyone’s thoughtfulness, kindness and the massive amount of help I have received before, during and after writing Stolen. People amaze me at how much they love my characters and my writing. I hope you all love the sequel, Freed and the many other books I write. Without people like you, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do. So thank you for just being you!
