You know what they say about mixing business with pleasure …
When the breakdown of her marriage leaves Sadie Turner a single mum, she vows that she will make it on her own. After all, why would a smart businesswoman with a PhD and the prospect of a life-changing deal on the horizon need a man?
But Sadie’s man-ban is tested to the limit when she travels to Monaco to meet her potential investor. There she encounters Mac, a rough and ready playboy billionaire who lives life in the fast lane – and that’s when the real adventure starts!
But Sadie’s heart isn’t the only thing on the line. There’s also the business she’s worked so hard to make a success; the business that could so easily slip out of her grasp if she doesn’t seal the deal within thirty days …
Debbie is a QVC Home Shopping Channel presenter. She started her career as the first girl in the hot seat on children’s BBC TV, replacing Phillip Schofield in the Broom Cupboard. Then she shared a couch with Eamonn Holmes to help launch BBC Daytime TV. Years later, she hosted her own BBC1 game show (Meet The Challenge) and has co-presented and reported on numerous other live magazine and entertainment and news shows.
She is the author of short stories for children’s TV (Buena Vista, ‘Rise and Shine’), and published a semi-autobiographical weight-loss book called Till The Fat Lady Slims. Her debut with Choc Lit Take a Chance on Me reached the final of the top ten ‘Best 100 First Words’ competition at York Festival.
Debbie lives in Dorking, Surrey and has two grown up children and three feisty Labradors.

The opening chapters are brilliant and have good pacing; they dive deep into the characters, the exotic setting and the instant connection made between Sadie and Mac. The middle-part focused on the drama of business negotiations and office politics, while Sadie and Mac try to keep their attraction purely professional. While the author has put a great deal of effort into Sadie’s scientific research and company deals, I did get lost at times during these chapters. Never the less the story ends as it starts: intense satisfaction.
The novel is definitely worth the price and is the perfect replacement for hot chocolate.
