An absolutely fantastic story with an amazingly eclectic group of characters.
Alice McBride is the lovely girl-next-door who gave up her dreams for those of her husband, who now, as a famous T.V. star, feels the best way to repay his wife is…to have an affair with his co-star. Living alone at the Manor house she adores, Alice struggles to make ends meet, so decides to rent out the property and live an Airstream caravan in a secluded part of the grounds.
Robinson Duff is a famous country singer who has given his wife everything she could ever want, she finds that the best way to repay Robinson is…to have an affair with his best friend. Needing to get away and clear his head, Robinson rents the manor house and wants nothing but peace and quiet.
Alice and Robinson have both been through the ringer and deserve to have a little happiness. The mutual attraction between the pair is undeniable and the inevitable happens, but both have set their ground rules and it is only for the summer. As the summer progresses so too does their affection for each other and the longer they continue the harder it is to say goodbye. When unexpected visitors turn up, Alice and Robinson have to bring their summer romance to an end but neither can go back to what they had before.
I absolutely adored this story. Not only were Alice and Robinson great characters but I have to take my hat (or wig) off to Naimh, Hazel, Ewan, Dessy, Jase and not forgetting Stewie. Good supporting characters really help to bring the story to life and that is one thing that Kat French does brilliantly.
A perfect summer read that will have you laughing, crying and swooning sometimes all at the same time!
Alice McBride’s husband Brad is super famous, totally gorgeous . . . and having an affair with his co-star. And now it’s splashed across all the newspapers.
After kicking Brad out, Alice decides to rent out her beloved home for the summer. And the last person she expects to arrive at Borne Manor is a sexy cowboy called Robinson.
Country music star Robinson has had his own share of heartache, and he’s come to Borne Manor to escape from it all. Neither Alice nor Robinson are looking for romance, but the spark between them can’t be ignored.
Could a holiday romance help heal their broken hearts? And what will happen when their long hot summer together comes to an end?
