Doing the Right Thing - available 6th Jan - Ellora's Cave
Addie Winter is single-just one more reason for disappointment in her permanently disapproving mother's eyes. There's nothing she wants more than to be loved but when her own mother can't bring herself to love her, she wonders if anyone can. What she needs is a man-real would be ideal, but she'll settle for pretend. Anything to shut her mother up.
Will Mansell chokes on his drink when Addie offers to pay him to spend the night in her room. Tall, dark-haired and the epitome of Addie's "hero", he can't believe his luck because women usually go for his blond-haired brother. Ed Mansell is a serial playboy with an electric smile who waltzes through life and through women. Lucky for Will and Ed they don't have the same taste in women. But that was before they met Addie.
Far from pretending, Will and Ed set out to prove Addie wrong. But after having no one who loves her, Addie finds too much love can be just as painful as no love at all.
