Forsaking All Others/Temporary Set-Back (Storycuts)

Forsaking All Others/Temporary Set-Back (Storycuts)


In 'Forsaking All Others', Julia Nicholson is blissfully happy. She's married to the wonderful David, they have a gorgeous home and a ginger kitten called Kitchen, and she wouldn't change a thing. Until a chance encounter with the devastatingly attractive film director, Richard de Lisle, shows her what she never knew she was missing.

In 'Temporary Set-Back', for Jenny, the only good thing about working at fusty publishers Mildew & Rambridge is the delectable editor Rupert Rambridge. Jenny is desperate for him to notice her - if only he'd pay her a fraction of the attention that handsome but sleazy Mr Curtis does. The chance to temp for Mr Rambridge's usual secretary might just see her daydreams become reality - but does she really know the type of man she's dealing with?

Part of the Storycuts series, these two short stories were previously published in the collection Lisa & Co.
