Lizzie Kent needs to forget the past. She lives in total anonymity, immersing herself in nursing to help her forget. But when a man from her previous life turns up in her clinic, the life she’s tried to create for herself may come toppling down.

Ash knows what he wants and he wants Lizzie, the girl who left him all those years ago. As Hollywood's greatest action superstar no one says no to him, but when Lizzie refuses to acknowledge their shared past, he has to resort to a little old fashioned blackmail.

Will Lizzie revisit her past to enable her future with the man she loves, or do old wounds run too deep?

My Review

Can a love survive eleven years of absence?

Through a twist of fate, Ash has now become a big Hollywood super star. Seeking treatment after a fight that leaves his face cut and bleeding, he seeks plastic surgery at an exclusive clinic for the stars. To his surprise, the nurse he runs into is the girl he fell in love with eleven years ago.

No Spoilers! Lizzie left Ash after losing her virginity to him in order to find privacy from the press. Seeking anonymity, she changed her name to Lizzie Kent and buried her past so deep that meeting Ash at the clinic leaves her reeling.

What happens next makes for a surprisingly interesting and enjoyable story of love denied and dreams fulfilled. Do not miss the truly sexy erotic scenes between these two. This is what Hollywood romances are made of!

About the Author

Jackie has been writing fiction since she was eleven years old. Mild mannered fantasy/SF/pseudo-literary writer by day, obsessive romance writer by night, she used to balance her writing with the more serious job of librarianship until a chance meeting with another romance writer prompted her to throw off the shackles of her day job and devote herself to the true love of her heart - writing romance. She particularly likes to write dark, emotional stories with alpha heroes who've just got the world to their liking only to have it blown wide apart by their kick-ass heroines.
She lives in Auckland, New Zealand with her husband, the inimitable Dr Jax, two kids, two cats and some guppies (possibly dead guppies by the time you read this). When she's not torturing alpha males and their stroppy heroines, she can be found drinking chocolate martinis, reading anything she can lay her hands on, posting random crap on her blog, or being forced to go mountain biking with her husband.
