Wealthy, handsome, charismatic Cas Finley is restless. He likes women, too much, perhaps, as he seeks variety, and has been with Alice for longer than usual. Now finding her too bland and smooth, too elegant to make a farmer's wife, and incidentally afraid of llamas, his latest venture, he is wondering how to drop her without giving pain.
Lucy, widowed when her unsatisfactory pop star husband is killed in a car accident, moves to Shorter's Green on the edge of the Chilterns to find a new life. She intends to start a mobile hairdressing salon. She is off men, except perhaps for Edward, a staid widower she's known since childhood, who is restful after the pop star life.
Recalling her encounter with a gorgeous man that morning, Lucy is drowning her sorrows after Edward breaks a date, when she is visited by Rosa, the llama, invading her kitchen. Almost against her will she becomes involved in Rosa's love life as Cas seeks a mate for her.

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.
