Winner of the 2007 Romantic Novelists Association Joan Hessayon New Writers Award.

The judges had this to say about Decent Exposure:

“This book had really great characters right from the start, especially the fish-out-of-water heroine and the hero who is ‘always happiest when he’s got something to be angry about’. We believed in this couple and their bumpy path to love. There is a real sense of lives lived, the close-knit team, the local rivalries, the small village, as well as the practical and psychological obstacles in the way of pulling the calendar together. We liked the humour nicely balanced with humanity and a bright, contemporary voice. Oh, and it has a cracker of a first sentence!”

Decent Exposure by Phillipa Ashley

When a nice girl asks twelve men to get naked, is it decent exposure or indecent exploitation?

Emma Tremayne has left her high-powered PR job and moved to the Lake District. She was expecting to find some much needed peace and quiet, not to end up cavorting on a hillside with a naked guy…

Emma thinks she is being community-minded when she agrees to help the local mountain rescue team put together a ‘tasteful’ nude calendar in order to fundraise for their new headquarters. Unfortunately, quite a lot of the community seems to mind what she’s up to. Including the extremely handsome Mr July, Will, who appears to have got completely the wrong impression about Emma’s intentions. So how does she convince him that he is more than just flavour of the month…?
