Outrunning her past was never going to be easy…
A job in a patent law firm is a far cry from the glamorous existence of a popstar’s girlfriend. But it’s just what Jane Porter needs to distance herself from her cheating ex, Ashby, and the press furore that surrounds the wreckage of her love life.
In a new city with a new look Jane sets about rebuilding her confidence, and after Ashby’s betrayal, she resolves that this will be something she does alone.
That is until she meets patent lawyer, Marshall Winfield. Sweet, clever and dealing with the aftermath of his own romantic disaster, Marsh could be the perfect cure for Jane’s broken heart.
But with the paparazzi still hot on Jane’s heels and an office troublemaker hell-bent on making things difficult, do Jane and Marsh stand any chance of finding happiness together?

Rhoda Baxter writes contemporary romantic comedies. As her father’s engineering skills were in international demand, Rhoda’s childhood was split between the UK, the Pacific island of Yap, Nigeria and Sri Lanka. Rhoda studied at the University of Oxford and holds a DPhil in microbiology.
When chosing a pen name, she got nostalgic about the bacteria she used to study, (Rhodobacter species) and named herself Rhoda Baxter after them. Now her day job involves protecting and commercialising Intellectual Property generated by University research. This allows her to stay in touch with cutting edge scientific research without having to spend long hours in the lab.
Rhoda is married and has 2 children. They live together in Beverley, East Yorkshire.
