…into the billionaire’s arms!

Elspeth Campbell’s sheltered existence means she’s hesitant to swap places with her exuberant twin for a glamorous wedding. But the social spotlight is nothing compared to the laser focus of Mack MacDiarmid’s undivided attention…

Having witnessed his father’s double life, cynical Mack’s certain the supposed socialite isn’t who she seems. And when she’s embroiled in a scandal not of her making, he tells Elspeth the pretense is up! He longs to show her she’s already the strong, sexy woman she wants to be…but is that all Mack can offer?

Melanie dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

I am completely fascinated by twins, especially identical ones. It must be so weird looking at a mirror image of yourself. But all the identical twins I know are quite different in personality, so I decided that was a great place to find a story. I once wrote a screenplay using the twin trope with identical male twins, one gay and one straight. It did the rounds of  Hollywood and like a lot of scripts, didn’t go anywhere. However, I live in hope! But I thought I’d revisit the trope using twin sisters this time: What if a shy, conservative twin swaps places with her more outgoing twin at a society wedding rehearsal but circumstances keep her there longer than she expected? Elspeth Campbell is only identical to her twin  Elodie in looks, which makes for a tricky switch when she has to pretend to be a wild party girl! I hope you enjoy Shy Innocent in the Spotlight as much as I enjoyed writing it.
