Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Sporting an interesting interviewing technique for an unspecified job, man-about-town Hughie gets lucky. This is charming, tongue-in-cheek, classy, romantic comedy with heart. Really great fun.

Comparison: Eva Rice, Victoria Clayton, Plum Sykes.

If you like Kathleen Tessaro you might also like to read books by Penny Vincenzi, Rachel Hore and Jessica Adams.

Synopsis

The Flirt by Kathleen Tessaro

Unique situation available for attractive, well mannered, reasonably educated young man.Hours irregular. Pay generous. Discretion a must.’

In a small office in Half Moon Street, Hughie Venables-Smythe discovers the world of the professional flirt. A timeless art, it can save a marriage or lift a heart faster than any therapy.

Letitia Vane runs a bespoke lingerie shop in Belgravia and understands just how to make women feel beautiful. But she cannot let her guard down and fall in love, least of all with Hughie.

Olivia Bourgault de Coudray is in an unhappy marriage to a very wealthy man. When a series of beautiful notecards begins to appear, with intriguing clues handwritten on each, her interest is piqued. But the same clues are being delivered to Letitia.

Who is flirting with whom? And is flirtation as innocent as it seems – or can it lead to far more dangerous territories of the heart?

About the Author

Kathleen Tessaro

Born in Pittsburgh, Kathleen Tessaro studied drama at Carnegie-Mellon University before emigrating to London. After ten years working as an actress in films, television and theatre, she left the profession and spent several years working for the English National Opera, while training in the evenings as a drama teacher and voice coach.

During this time, she began to write. Working on short stories during her lunch hour, she soon became a regular member of the Wimpole Street Writers Workshop, a collection of female authors who meet every week. Her debut novel, Elegance, was a huge success, reaching number two in the Sunday Times bestseller list and gaining acres of press coverage. Kathleen is married with a son and lives in North London.
