AT A TV AWARDS CEREMONY in summer 2014, Gracie Campbell by chance meets Max Jacob, an upcoming actor who's on the brink of taking Hollywood. 

Quarrels with her husband have urged her home to Scotland where the parley with Max ends in misunderstanding. But a further chance encounter leads to a steamy liaison with a no strings attached understanding.

Months pass as they continue their lives however tragedy and heartache hit both celebrity and banker, and eight months later they are forced to meet. 

Sometimes fate can bring you together,
Sometimes love can tear you apart.....

NB - Tense change in progress (chptr 26-35)

Enjoyed the first chapter, interest has been grabbed which is sometimes a problem with opening chapters, I'm left wanting to discover more about the characters and their lives.  Good so far ⭐️

Thank you. I'm in the midst of a tense chg with book 1 so after 13 or 14 it will revert bk to the original style. It was my first attempt at writing an adult story so if you can, please bear with it. Book2 is completely in present tense so will be easier to get through. Thx again x
