Still crocked, I began working on this novella. It’s more bittersweet romance than thriller. Here’s the blurb:
Disgraced army pilot turned courier Mark Barrett works in ‘that grey area between almost and legal.’
Spenderella sees Mark undertaking to aid an old friend’s attempt to reinvent herself. Riley Spender is a Madame to the global elite – she counts princes, presidents and pontiffs as her friends, her parties are international, infamous and invitation only. She’s rich, she’s successful and she has a black book the size of a medieval ledger. The press call her Spenderella – the poor girl who caught the heart of many, many princes, and has the jewellery, the lavish lifestyle and the tabloid profile to prove it.
And she wants out.
He’s the Courier. She’s the merchandise.
But what will this meeting of old flames mean for Mark’s self-image as a modern day Sir Galahad, and will past loves and old scars bear scrutiny?
Due just before Christmas.
