'More essential than suncream in your beach bag this summer . . . Sexy, glamorous and fun' HEAT
FOR THE PERFECT LIFE . . . YOU MAY HAVE TO BREAK SOME RULES
I’m Vanessa Powell.
People think they know me because I’m famous. They think I’ve got the world at my feet and the husband every woman wants to marry.
But fame can be a lonely place and the perfect marriage can be even lonelier. Now someone’s come into my life who makes me feel alive.
For the first time ever, I’m thinking about what I really want. No matter what the consequences.
Funny, sexy and full of romance and drama, this is a fabulous read for fans of Catherine Alliott, Lucy Diamond and Veronica Henry.

Following a sexy, colourful cast through city and country, Naked Truths is an addictive, funny, feel-good romantic romp.
The gorgeous women of Churchminster know exactly what they want - a constant flow of champagne (on tap at the local pub) and the love of a good man.
But faced with the likes of braying, beer-guzzling farmer Angus, foul-tempered Lord Fraser and suave banker Sebastian (devoted only to himself), their attentions are increasingly drawn to more attractive possibilities . . .
Meanwhile, when a part of their beloved village comes under threat from a villainous property developer and his bulldozer, the community is united by a different kind of passion.
Can they raise enough money to save Churchminster? Will Mick Jagger turn up to the charity ball? And can a person actually die from too much extra-marital sex?
