When a nice girl asks twelve men to get naked, is it decent exposure or indecent exploitation? Emma Tremayne has left her high-powered PR job and moved to the Lake District. She was expecting to find some much-needed peace and quiet, not to end up cavorting on a hillside with a naked guy. Emma thinks she's being community-minded when she agrees to help the local mountain rescue team put together a 'tasteful' nude calendar in order to fundraise for their new headquarters. Unfortunately, quite a lot of the community seems to mind what she's up to. Including the extremely handsome Mr July, Will, who appears to have got completely the wrong impression about Emma's intentions. So how does she convince him that he's more than just Flavour of the Month...? Sassy, funny and smart, Decent Exposure is a gorgeous read from a sparkling new voice in romantic fiction.

Discover the perfect recipe for friendship this Christmas... On the first Monday of December, every year, twelve friends gather in the evening with batches of homemade cookies wrapped in beautiful packages. They drink wine, they eat and they take turns telling the story of the cookies they have baked. Somehow these stories are always emblematic of the year that has just passed, as complicated and rich as our own lives. Lives full of sisterly love and conflict, yearning for babies and grandchildren, passion and disillusionment with men, a secret decade long affair, the loss of a job, the death of a child... These women are as imperfect as real women, made heroic by their ability to resolve conflict, to endure and support each other. The Cookie Club is as involving, heartwarming and uplifting a story as you'll ever read.

Beth Allen has moved on... It's been eight years since she and Jack Thornfield met on an exotic holiday and sparked up a seriously promising romance. But then he disappeared without a trace, and Beth's life got dreadfully busy, demanding, and altogether complicated. Then Jack and Beth run into each other again...while she's applying for an exciting new job in London-at his company. For necessity's sake, but against her better judgment, she takes the job, and from that moment on, complicated doesn't even begin to describe it... WHAT READERS SAY: "A holiday fling that will last longer than your tan!" "A wonderful funny, sexy, romantic read." "This book is gorgeous, simply gorgeous...jump-off-the-page characters, masses of humour, sexual tension you could cut with a penknife, heart-wringing romance-you literally won't be able to put it down." "I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys enveloping themselves in a great big squashy marshmallow duvet with a whopping box of chocolates-this is the literary equivalent." "Another lovely romantic tale from Phillipa Ashley that will leave you feeling all warm and cosy."
