I've decided to start a weekly post that features a book that I consider to be a 'must read' and that is releasing in the current month.
Coming January 30, 2014
Meet Ellie Cohen, one of the most perfect girls in London.
Ellie manages a swank Mayfair gallery, but it’s her life that’s a real work of art. Great job, really good hair, loyal friends, loving family. It’s only her succession of lame duck boyfriends that ruin the picture.
Oh, and the world-famous rock-star father she’s never met, who won’t even acknowledge her existence.
Then Ellie’s perfect life is smashed to pieces when her secret is sold to the highest bidder and her name, face (and pictures of her bottom) are splashed across the tabloids. Suddenly everyone thinks she’s a gold-digging, sex-crazy, famewhore.
Enter David Gold. Charming and handsome David Gold. On paper he’s even more perfect than Ellie, if only he wasn’t her father’s ruthlessly ambitious lawyer whose job is to manage the crisis – and her. He certainly doesn’t think that Ellie’s the innocent party and she doesn’t trust him at all. So why is it that every time they’re alone together, damage limitation is the last thing on their minds?

And now the WHY...
I adore Sarra Manning. I have read a few of her books and always enjoy them. She writes amazing characters and includes romance in a way that tugs the heart and tickles the funny bone at the same time. Her characters are very real. They behave like intelligent human being. I always end her books feeling like I have just made some new lifelong friends.
Check out some of her other books too.
