Release day: His Mistress for a Week
Today is the official release of His Mistress for a Week by Melanie Milburne (paperback, Mills & Boon). Here’s the blurb:
What happens in Monte Carlo…
Ten years ago bookshop assistant Clementine Scott clashed spectacularly with architect Alistair Hawthorne. After the humiliation of that night she swore she’d never have anything to do with any man ever again, especially the arrogant Alistair!
But when Clem’s brother disappears with Alistair’s stepsister, she isn’t given a choice…she will be going with Alistair to Monte Carlo to retrieve them! Forced together for one week, they quickly realize that their enmity masks simmering, sizzling lust. They strike a deal: for one week only, all bets—and clothes—are off!
Melanie dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
When I first started thinking about this story, my goal was to pit two inflexible control freaks against each other. Clementine Scott has OCD and her arch enemy, Alistair Hawthorne is equally obsessed—about getting his sixteen-year-old step-sister back in boarding school in England where she belongs and not gallivanting around the French Riviera with Clem’s wayward brother Jamie. This is a caper romance where Clem and Alistair have to join forces to bring about the goal they both want, but it throws them together in a way neither of them planned. Scratch the surface of any control freak or person suffering from OCD and you’ll find deep-seated fear. Fear is a cover-up emotion and I really enjoyed helping Alistair and Clem confront their personal fears and finally overcome them. I hope you enjoy reading His Mistress for a Week as much as I enjoyed writing it.
