Quicker than she ever thought possible, she finds herself surrounded by stunning men that all seem determined to win her heart. Why does she feel drawn to each one of them? More importantly, what dark power do they hold over her? Rayla must quickly learn to fend off these beautiful and seductive pursuers using whatever means necessary or find herself lost to the fae world forever.
One Day, Someday
by Lynne Barrett-Lee
Series: Elemental Enmity
Release date: June 25th 2012
Goodreads synopsis: Can one day change your life? For Lu Fisher, ex-french teacher and fraught single mother, one day is pretty much like another: typing, translating, making endless cups of coffee…oh, and daydreaming about finally giving up her dull temp job and going back to college and her first love, studying art. Nights, however, are quite a different matter. Particularly those that involve the delectable Stefan, who tutors the local evening class on impressionist painters, and who is making a serious impression on Lu.
But one day is about to change her life. The day on which her irascible boss, Joe Delaney, breaks his arm in an accident and writes off her car. He’s sorry, of course, and yes, he’ll get her a new one, but in the meantime she needs transport and he needs a chauffeur. Simple, he says. She can drive his car instead. No matter that his Jaguar costs more than her house. Or, indeed, that Lu knows he’ll drive her up the wall..
One Day, Someday is a clever, funny novel about that time in a woman’s life when dreams begin fading and princes – handsome or otherwise – are getting thin on the ground. Lu’s always rather hoped that hers would show up someday – trouble is, that someday has been so long in coming, she’s not altogether sure she’d even spot him if he did…
