An irresistibly sassy, smart debut from Phillipa Ashley and winner of the RNA's 2007 New Writers' Award
When a nice girl asks twelve men to get naked, is it decent exposure or indecent exploitation
Emma Tremayne has left her high-powered PR job and moved to the Lake District. She was expecting to find some much-needed peace and quiet, not to end up cavorting on a hillside with a naked guy. Emma thinks she's being community-minded when she agrees to help the local mountain rescue team put together a 'tasteful' nude calendar in order to fundraise for their new headquarters. Unfortunately, quite a lot of the community seems to mind what she's up to. Including the extremely handsome Mr July, Will, who appears to have got completely the wrong impression about Emma's intentions. So how does she convince him that he's more than just Flavour of the Month...
Sassy, funny and smart, Decent Exposure is a gorgeous read from a sparkling new voice in romantic fiction.
