Summer’s Lease

The Shakespeare Sisters Book #1

He’s a Hollywood heart-throb

She’s hit rock bottom.

Can their scorching fling survive reality?

Cesca Shakespeare has hit an all time low. After her prize-winning play ended in disaster, writer’s block turned up, moved in and got a Netflix subscription. Six years later, she’s lost her dead-end job and is about to lose her apartment. Worse still, her sisters have no idea how far she’s fallen. So when her fairy Godfather offers her a free summer vacation in a beautiful Italian villa, she grudgingly agrees to try writing a new play. That’s before she finds out the house belongs to the man who ruined her career, the gorgeous Sam Carlton.

Having just hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons – again – Hollywood heart-throb Sam Carlton needs a place to hide out. Where better than his family’s secluded empty villa on Lake Como? Except when he arrives, it isn’t as empty as he’d hoped.

One thing’s for sure – this is going to be a red-hot, scorching summer. . .
