Canelo have acquired a new Lancashire romance trilogy by Sasha Morgan

December 08, 2021

Senior commissioning editor Emily Bedford has acquired world English language rights to a new cosy romance series by Sasha Morgan in a three-book deal.

Escape to Lilacwell sees burnt-out barrister Adira Summers chuck in her day job to travel around the UK in her recently purchased campervan for some much-needed R&R. Only her campervan has other plans and Adira promptly finds herself stranded in the picturesque Lancashire village of Lilacwell. Filled with lively characters and unexpected flirtations, Lilacwell soon feels like home – but Adira’s plans don’t involve settling down. However, adventure can take many forms, and it’s up to Adira to decide if staying or going is the next step on her journey…

Sasha Morgan lives in a village by the coast in Lancashire with her husband and has one grown up son. She has previously written her Treweham Hall contemporary fiction series, with a touch of ‘spice’ – probably due to all the Jilly Cooper novels she read as a teenager! Besides writing, Sasha loves drinking wine, country walks and curling up with a good book.

Emily Bedford says: ‘I am delighted to add Sasha to Canelo’s Escape list and am thrilled to be working with her on this series. As soon as I landed in Lilacwell with Adira, I knew I wanted to stay there and get to know the cast of quirky characters who readers are guaranteed to fall in love with. Sasha knows how to deliver romance with buckets of chemistry for a truly delicious read.’

Sasha Morgan says: ‘I’m so excited to work with Canelo and can’t wait to see my new Lilacwell series out there. It’s a privilege to have such a great team behind me and my books – oh happy, happy days!’

Escape to Lilacwell will be published in July 2022, in ebook and paperback, with books two and three in the series to follow in 2023. For more information please contact
