It was the perfect opportunity for 'closure'...

Meet Annie Markham. Gentle, sweet and kind. Except for her dark side. A dark side called Jake Mead. Seven years ago he'd been her entire world, even though her godmother had tried to persuade her to dump him. But when the going got tough, Annie's 'tough' got going. Jake's hasty departure from her life proved that a) godmothers are cleverer than they look and b) the only thing reliable about men is that they're totally unreliable.

Now Jake is back in her life. And he's the one man who may just save her family's ailing company.

But what Annie doesn't know is that Jake has an Achilles' heel. An Achilles' heel called Annie Markham. He's never quite got over her treatment of him all those years ago. This is the perfect opportunity for what some may call 'closure'. But what Jake calls, 'revenge'.

Another in Melissa Nathan's series of updating Jane Austen. This time it's Persuasion. A nice light hearted read, following the original plot closely and including a lot more humour. A fun read for the Dentist's waiting room. Read full review

Is a nice story and funny, but I still prefer The nanny... If you need to read something funny and donīt need to think in anything this is one of the best books to have... Nice reading for brain vacations.... Read full review
