Publisher Comments:

Deliciously wicked and hugely entertaining.

Booklist

Anna's boyfriend is impossibly handsome, impossibly rich, and generally just impossible. When he inevitably dumps her, she vows to give up men and throws herself into her career as an aspiring novelist. Which is how she ends up working for Cassandra.

The social climber from hell, Cassandra has a huge mansion, a philandering rock star husband, Satan for a son, and a bestselling writing career that has massively stalled.

So when dashing Jamie, charming heir to a castle in Scotland, offers Anna an escape beyond her wildest dreams, she can't believe her luck. And she probably shouldn't...

A romp of a novel...Wendy Holden writes with delicious verve and energy.

Well observed and witty.

-Mirror

Laugh-out-loud funny...a treat.
