MAID IN ENGLAND -by Brenda St John Brown
Updated: Feb 10, 2019
Releases 5 Feb 2019
A wonderful new release "slow burn". This burn is so slow it began years before. Remi & Alistair are thrown back into each others lives unexpectedly and find that the spark is still there, if only they can stand to be in each others presence. Throw in Ziggy - the dog with a wiggling butt and a big toothy (pretty sure he's going to eat me) grin.
What happens when you forgo having a life to have a career? What happens when suddenly you realise that everyone expects to be able to have their lives because you can be relied on the not to? And what happens when you don't want to maintain the status quo?
Of course a cup of tea solves all in England and village life is much more interesting than it seems. Don't forget your wellies!
TO: The guy who dumped me because of my career FROM: The woman hired to advance yours RE: I am 150,000% over you. Alastair,
I’m on the 11:14 train out of London, so I’ll be there by 3:00. To make this as painless as possible, I thought it would help to establish key ground rules: 1. No rehashing our past relationship. Yes, we were engaged, but it’s been twelve years and I’m over you. 2. I’m very good at my job and that job is to help you shed the “reclusive” part of the whole “reclusive rock star” vibe you’ve got going on. Brace yourself. 3. My plan is to have this wrapped up by Friday, so save your smoldering looks until I’m gone, please. (I assume you still smolder?) I’m immune now. See item #1. 4. My cousin is getting married and guess who's a bridesmaid? Funny, huh? Almost as funny as the fiancée you dumped because you thought she was married to her job now saving yours.
Always a bridesmaid, never a bride. Except almost. That one time. Remi
P.S. Have I mentioned I’m totally, completely 150,000% over you?
