Welcome to my love stories for hopeful romantics!
I’m Jacquelyn Middleton, award-winning author of contemporary fiction and contemporary romance, and the 2019 recipient of the BEST CANADIAN AUTHOR award from the Toronto chapter of the Romance Writers of America. Thank you so much for stopping by.
LONDON BELONGS TO ME and LONDON, CAN YOU WAIT? are stories about friendship, believing in yourself, and finding where you belong. They celebrate theatre and the arts, explore Alex Sinclair’s struggles with anxiety and panic attacks, and feature an irresistible Irish book boyfriend in Mark Keegan. They’re also a love letter to my favourite city.
My latest novel, UNTIL THE LAST STAR FADES, is touching, heartfelt and passionate, and blurs the line between slow-burn romance and women’s fiction. This standalone set in New York City is the story of Riley Hope, a senior struggling to stay afloat at New York University, and Ben Fagan, a cheeky Scottish actor looking for a good time. It’s also a love story about Riley and her mother, Maggie, and is a must-read for hopeful romantics, devoted daughters, and the moms they cherish. Kirkus Reviews called UNTIL THE LAST STAR FADES “a delightful contemporary romance [with] a good mix of poignancy and sexy fun,” while Hypable raved, “from charismatic characters to honest discussions of depression and all the ’80s music, there isn’t a single aspect of this novel that I didn’t fall head-over-heels for.”
My fourth book, SAY HELLO, KISS GOODBYE, will be published soon! This standalone is steamy and heartfelt, and I can’t wait for you to travel to London, New York, and Scotland (Orkney!) with Leia and Tarquin!
