The Honey Trap

The Honey Trap

Author: Mary Jayne Baker Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/11/2016

The trap is set - but which one of them is the bait? Journalist Angel Blackthorne is looking for her next big scoop. When her sleazy editor asks her to use her charms on super successful - and married - film director Sebastian Wilchester for a juicy expose, Angel thinks what the hell? There's a staff job on the horizon, and, let's be honest, no one can make a cheater cheat if they don't want to, right? After the scandal breaks, Angel tries to put the story - and Seb - behind her, but fate seems to have other ideas. A near miss at a premiere after-party and a shared love of vintage film brings the honey closer to the trap. But what happens when pretence leads to passion, and a `kiss and tell' becomes something real?
