EMILY HAS SWORN OFF LOVE.
BUT MAYBE IT'S TIME TO GET BACK IN THE SADDLE . . . ?
Emily Wilkinson has lost everything. Literally. In a hair-straightener fire. Oh, and her boyfriend (and boss) has announced he's going back to his wife. So, she needs a new job, a new plan, and somewhere to live that isn't her childhood bedroom.
Charles Hunter is looking for a live-in PA to help run Bowford Manor and Emily thinks she's the perfect fit. Well, she's spent ten years propping up demanding men, so she can definitely handle some tricky characters - like Charles's eldest son and heir, who's got plans for the estate that might raise a few eyebrows.
No one's mentioned Jamie though. The stable hand - and youngest Hunter. Dashing, of course, but totally unsuitable. And Emily's not about to make that mistake again.
Definitely not. No, really.
A hugely uplifting and totally irresistible romantic comedy that will make you snort with laughter. If you love Sophie Kinsella, Mhairi McFarlane and Sophie Ranald, you don't want to miss this unforgettable page-turner.
'Witty, wise and romantic'
'Fun, sexy, and wonderfully escapist, this was a thoroughly enjoyable read!'
'The blast of escapism we all need right now!'
'The perfect escape for anybody who loves a swoon-worthy hero and a fabulous setting!'
