A short novella by Marina Oliver, author of 60+ novels.
Coming out of the shower in her borrowed apartment, Rezia is confronted by a very angry - but very blond and attractive - young man. She expected her photographic commission in New York to be exciting - but not this exciting!
Klaus turns out to live next door and has mistaken Rezia for the apartment's owner. But their quickly developing relationship is threatened by newspaper photographs of him he thinks she has taken.
Rezia is looking forward to working in the major art galleries and museums in New York. And being given the use of Gina's luxury penthouse apartment overlooking Central Park when Gina suddenly goes away adds even more to her expectations.
But Klaus' behaviour puzzles Rezia. Maybe he mistook her for Gina - but why should he be so angry? What was Gina not telling her?
Gradually Klaus' efforts to make amends by taking Rezia to dinner - and even to his Long Island home enables them to develop a more relaxing relationship. But then photographs of Klaus in his home are published and he blames Rezia. Can their friendship survive?

About the Author
Most writers can't help themselves! It's a compulsion. Getting published, though, is something really special, and having been so fortunate myself I now try to help aspiring writers by handing on tips it took me years to work out. I've published over 60 titles, including four in the How To Books' Successful Writing Series, and Writing Historical Fiction for Studymates. I have judged short story competitions, been a final judge for the Harry Bowling Prize and was an adviser to the 3rd edition of Twentieth Century Romance and Historical Writers 1994. If you want to find out more about your favourite authors, consult this book. I once wrote an article on writing romantic fiction for the BBC's web page, for Valentine's day. I have given talks and workshops for the Arts Council and at most of the major Writing Conferences, and helped establish the Romantic Novelists' Association's annual conference. I was Chairman of the RNA 1991-3, ran their New Writers' Scheme and edited their newsletter. I am now a Vice-President. As well as writing I have edited books for Transita, featuring women 'of a certain age', and for Choc Lit where gorgeous heros are the norm. I was asked to write A Century of Achievement, a 290 page history of my old school, Queen Mary's High School, Walsall, and commissioned to write a book on Castles and Corvedale to accompany a new circular walk in the area. Most of my Regencies written under the pseudonym Sally James are now published in ebook format as well as many others of my out of print novels which my husband is putting into ebook format. Our daughter Debbie is helping with designing the covers. For details of all my books and my many pseudonyms see my website.
