Monday Minx - Misbehaving...


I'd like to draw your attention to a fabulous first release with Wild Rose written by fellow Minx, Romy Sommer, writing as Rae Summers. Here's a taster to whet your appetite...

"Gabrielle is the quintessential Flapper, a wild child who turns her back on home and a resentful and unloving mother to become a nightclub singer. She wants nothing more from life than freedom and pleasure.
Sebastian is a dutiful son, following in his father’s footsteps and on the verge of marrying a suitable bride. But as the Twenties roar to their conclusion, he finds himself torn between duty and the urge to indulge his adventurous streak.
From the moment Gabrielle and Sebastian meet, the tension between them simmers. When he rescues her from a boorish suitor, Gabrielle discovers a kindred spirit beneath Sebastian’s serious demeanour, and she sets out to seduce him into one last passionate fling before he settles for a loveless marriage.
But the fire that burns between them threatens to consume her. Will Gabrielle survive falling in love with the one man she cannot have?"

The cover is as stylish as the story and in case you think I'm biased have a read of her first review from RT Book Reviews (who gave her four and a half stars :-). They say
"Let's Misbehave is a romp through 1920s England that is sure to delight... At only 80 pages, this novella never seems rushed or forced. Instead the story conveys a depth of feeling that is not reached by many novels triple its size. Brava, Summers!"


You can read the full review here And visit Wild Rose to buy the story here You can also read an excerpt on the Wild Rose site. So what are you waiting for? Go read :-)
