What should you do when your boyfriend wants to propose live on air? Should you a) confess up front that you’re already married before the cameras are in your face and risk losing him, because you never meant to lie but you never mentioned it either. On the other hand, b) try to avoid being alone with him (ever again) so that he will not get the opportunity to ambush you with a surprise engagement ring. Or c) play along with it and accept his offer of marriage and that leaves option d) which stands for divorce, which is what you should have done ages ago seeing as it’s been five long years since you've actually seen your husband in the flesh. Speaking about the absent husband, just to complicate matters even further begs the question. Did they have to make a pact to hook up again five years down the line and get back together for good, if neither of them had found happiness with another person by then?

About the Author
Maureen Reil was born in Liverpool, England but lives in Lancashire in the North West of Great Britain. She is a married writer, they have three sons and a dog but all of them refuse to read her work if it is called Chick-Lit. Even the pooch tries to leave the room whenever she reads aloud but since the mutt has not mastered the door handle yet then he has to stay and listen so he gets a big doggie treat for his endurance. She writes her comedy romance novels in a ‘chatty’ conversational style and loves a good ‘happily-ever-after’ whether it is fiction or film. When the author is not writing books, she enjoys reading books (other peoples that is and not her own because that would be weird. Actually, strike that because it sounds like she steals them but she meant other authors). Anyway, moving on, she qualified in interior design and has a thing for beautiful gardens (not that you would know this judging by the state of her own home nowadays so blame it on the bad health rather than laziness). For Maureen Reil is currently working hard on another project which she hopes to bring to publication soon (since she is far too busy to do the weeding and besides, she prefers to call them wild-flowers which are good for the environment as they encourage the wildlife). She writes day in and day out whilst having fun with it after making a commitment to her readers that Maureen Reil will try her best to make them smile, if not laugh-out-loud at her funny but loveable characters and their comical antics as hilarity ensues while they root for the main gal to get her goal so happy reading.
