Coming Soon – Summer’s Lease (Shakespeare Sisters #1)

Cesca Shakespeare has hit rock bottom. Six years after the play she wrote bombed at the box office, she’s unable to hold down a job, keep an apartment, and worst of all her family have no idea how far she’s fallen. So when her fairy Godfather offers her the use of his friend’s Italian villa for the summer, she grudgingly agrees to try writing a new play. That’s before she finds out the house belongs to her arch-nemesis, Sam Carlton.

When Hollywood heart-throb Sam Carlton sees his name splashed across a gossip rag, all he wants to do is hide. That’s how he finds himself traveling to Italy, deciding to spend the summer in his family’s empty villa on Lake Como. Except when he arrives it isn’t as empty as he’d hoped.

Over the course of the hot Italian summer, Cesca and Sam have to come to terms with their pasts. What begins as a tentative friendship quickly grows into an intense attraction – and then a scorching fling. But they can’t hide from reality forever . . . as their different worlds collide, Sam and Cesca face a choice: is this just a summer romance, or could their love weather even the coldest winds?

And that’s saying a lot!

I’m Carrie Elks, author of four books (and counting…) My books have been translated into 6 different languages, and I count myself lucky to have readers all across the globe. I write books full of emotion, passion and love.
So pour yourself a cup of tea (or a glass of something stronger), pull up a chair and come join me. Let’s talk romance!

    • Hi Anna, thank you so much for reading Fix You! The Love in London series has similar themes (love, second chances, modern women) but is written in a different style. If you’d like to give them a go Coming Down (the first book) is currently free to download on Amazon. Thanks again and have a great day xx

  2. Hello ! This is Haider here from India. Only one I had have your book with me. The book is Fix You. Really, the story is so awesome that after many years it can forget. Especially, it happens with me. I am waiting for your next novel. I hope the next story I expect the same.

  3. I love Fix You. It’s been a favourite of mine for a long, long time, if you see what I mean! 🙂
    There are some books I know and return to when I need a ‘comfort fix’ and this is one of those, together with titles from Jeanne McDonald, Sarah Latchaw and Olivia Evans, amongst others I have been reading for a while.
    Congrats on you success as an author. It is well deserved 🙂

  4. I love ‘Fix You’ and the wonderful mix of characters. Hanna and Richard were so good together, and I wanted to just shake them both sometimes!🙄
    I admire how you brought attention to the real issue of depression arising from bereavement. The fallout is realistic & heartbreaking.💔
    I didn’t want ‘Fix You’ to end and was extremely pleased with the well written epilogue!

  5. Hi i am Agung from Indonesia, is it possible to purchase “fix you” book from you and also can you send to Indonesia by post ? I can paid thru paypal if possible. Please advise
