I love Cosway’s books. She’s one of my favourite authors. If you haven’t checked out her work, I urge you to do it now. She’s written the beautiful Tegan’s Blood books and the folkore, fantasy Florence Vaine series. Now she’s releasing a contemporary romance which I’m excited to jump into.
Come forth with an open mind, for an unconventional tale of love..
Dublin native Freda Wilson considers herself to be an acquired taste. She has a habit of making offensive jokes and speaking her mind too often. She doesn’t have the best track record with first impressions, which is why she gets a surprise when her new neighbour Nicholas takes a shine to her.
Nicholas is darkly handsome, funny and magnetic, and Freda feels like her black and white existence is plunged into a rainbow of colour when she’s around him. When he walks into a room he lights it up, with his quick wit and charisma. He is a travelling cabaret performer, but Freda doesn’t know exactly what that entails until the curtains pull back on his opening night.
She is gobsmacked and entirely intrigued to see him take to the stage in drag. Later on, Nicholas asks her if she would like to become his show assistant. Excited by the idea, she jumps at the chance. Soon she finds herself embroiled in a world of wigs, make-up and high heels, surrounded by pretty men and the temptation of falling for her addictively beautiful employer.
In this story of passion and sexual discovery, Nicholas and Freda will contend with jealousy, emotional highs and lows, and the kind of love that only comes around once in a lifetime.
It’s out December 16th. I can’t wait to grab my copy!
