Read an Excerpt

He was on stage making a living as a singer - not quite up to West End standards, but a good living, way beyond anything he could have aspired to if he'd remained in Pontypridd. And if the impresarios and critics were to be believed, the world was poised, waiting for him to take it by storm. National success was around the next corner.

And although he might not have a regular sweetheart - he glanced at Babs; by no stretch of the imagination could he apply that word to her - that was his choice. He had all the women he could handle and more throwing themselves at him, not because of his looks and talent, but because the ratio of girls to men on variety tours favoured men, which meant that he'd often found himself with five and sometimes as many as ten willing and able paramours to choose from. As his father would have said, 'He was in God's pocket.' So why had he felt so damned miserable ever since he'd come home?
