The Winchester Brother's Blog Tour - Nat Hobson

Nat Hobson is a pseudonym of Melissa Barker-Simpson. Publishing under Nat, she concentrates on her passion for writing love stories, focusing on contemporary romance. Although there is an element of romance in all her novels, this is usually interwoven in tales of crime, fantasy or science fiction. By writing as Nat, this allows her to write everyday stories of love, and friendship for a specific audience.

About the Books



Addy's Choice (Book 1)

Sometimes the hardest thing about lowering our defenses is the fear of how far we might fall.

That fear had been Adrienne Baxter’s driving force most of her life. It was far easier to hide behind her radio personality, feeding from her audience, than to risk exposure.

She had James, her brother by choice if not by blood. It was enough – most of the time.

As the co-host of the early morning breakfast show at Music 101, Adrienne is the confident, sassy presenter with the silver tongue and fast-talking wit.

When she meets Sebastian Davies, the station owner’s son, her carefully applied facade begins to slip. He presents a new kind of danger, because this time she could lose her heart.

Heart of Fire (Book 2)

Tyler Davies was eighteen when he met the fiery beast he would later battle on a regular basis. Seduced by the beauty of her flaming touch, he had looked right into the heart of the fire and known she had claimed him.

It was the second time he’d seen his future. The first was the day he met Lilly-May Saunders, a girl who burned so bright he was blind to anyone else. If it hadn’t been for her friendship with his brother, a relationship he didn’t truly understand, he would have confessed his feelings. But when his friend dies in the line of duty, and Tyler discovers the truth behind the accident, everything changes. Those he loves are in danger, and the one who owns his heart is at the top of the list.

The story behind the name


I’ve been writing stories my whole life. I didn’t have a choice, considering all the characters residing in my head! There is always an element of romance in my work, though I am drawn to other genres too, and enjoy to combine two elements when I take my readers on a journey.

A few years ago I wrote Addy’s Choice with the specific goal of writing a love story. I enjoyed the process, liked the characters I created, and knew before I reached the end, I wanted to spend more time with the Davies brothers.

Contemporary romance is a genre which caters to a specific audience, and so I decided to publish the novel under a pseudonym. I created Nat Hobson by borrowing my grandfather’s name – Nathaniel Hobson. He was the kind of man who believed in family, in grand declarations of love and who enjoyed nothing more that regaling us with stories of his own love affair. It feels good to share every day stories under his name, and as the Winchester Brothers could be deemed a family saga, this seems fitting too. So, for my readers who want a taste of the contemporary, hopefully, Nat Hobson will fit the bill!
