“Who are you?”

After three months of travelling, all Connor Preston wants to do is sink into his own bed. The last thing he expects is to find a stark-naked woman already there….

Josie Marchpane wasn’t anticipating company either. Connor may be six feet four inches of pure muscle and boast a disturbingly sexy smile, but a fortnight in the South of France is the one thing standing between Josie and her sanity—and she’s not about to give it up without a fight!

Because Josie plays to win. The problem? Connor does, too. And with only one bed between them, things are about to get interesting…

Dear Reader,

Ah, the South of France-home of the most delicious sun-ripened tomatoes, Mediterranean storms and the sultry air of pleasure and possibility.  The ideal setting for a workaholic with a chip on her shoulder to lose her inhibitions and finally start to live.

As characters on a page Connor and Josie have been on a long journey together.  They’ve been shacked up in the electronic ether for a few years now, but they just wouldn’t let me into their secret world until I picked them up again a year or so ago and they finally started talking to me.  Suddenly I got them-and about time too!

I love these too together.  They’re both headstrong and determined but with a soft centre, both crying out for kindness and patience and a deeper understanding of what they intrinsically need.  They’ve been running from their pasts and the weight of expectations for so long they’ve lost their way.  Until they’re forced to share a house, sit still for once and talk.

I hope you enjoy travelling with them on their journey to emotional freedom and love as much as I did.

With best wishes

Christy x
