ARGUMENTS with her husband force Gracie Campbell, a Private Client Manager based in London, to take a short trip home to Scotland.

It's June 2014 and at a TV/Film awards ceremony in Glasgow, she meets Max Jacob - an upcoming actor who's on the brink of taking Hollywood. Their first meeting ends with misunderstanding however a second chance encounter leads to an out of character steamy liaison and an unspoken 'no strings attached' understanding between the two.

Months pass during which they continue their separate 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.....

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
