Summer's Lease : Escape to paradise with this swoony summer romance Paperback / softback

Part of the The Shakespeare Sisters series

Paperback / softback


'A wonderful, captivating romantic story' Chicklit ClubA free summer holiday in a beautiful villa in Lake Como.

The catch? Sharing a house with her worst enemy . . . Cesca Shakespeare has hit rock bottom. After one prize-winning play that ended in disaster, writer's block turned up, moved in and got a Netflix subscription.

Six years later, she's just lost her crappy job and is about to lose her flat.

Worse still, her sisters have no idea how far she's fallen.

So when her fairy Godfather offers her a free summer holiday in a beautiful Italian villa, she grudgingly agrees to try writing a new play.

That's before she finds out the house belongs to her arch-nemesis, Sam Carlton.

Having just hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons - again - Hollywood heart-throb Sam Carlton needs a place to hide out.

Where better than his family's gorgeous empty villa on Lake Como?

Except when he arrives, it isn't as empty as he'd hoped. One thing's for sure - this is going to be a red-hot, scorching summer . . . A brand new series from the bestselling author of Fix You and the Love in London series.

Look out for more in The Shakespeare Sisters with A Winter's Tale coming soon from Carrie Elks.
