PASSION – Buy it here
Orphan Will Hyde and professor’s daughter Melissa Elmet fell passionately in love as teenagers at Oxford. But, after her family intervenes, their secret marriage is annulled. Heartbroken, Melissa retreats into her shell, becoming a mousy, shy academic, surrounded by books, with a dry, dusty fiance and a dream of what might have been… Will, on the other hand, embittered by this ultimate rejection, enters the army, then MI6, eventually ending up as a millionaire banker in New York, with a perfect fiance and only dark memories of the girl who broke his heart all those years ago. Their lives are completely different. They’ll never meet again. And then people start getting killed. Will is the only person who notices what the link to all four high-profile shootings is… Melissa’s father, the secretive professor who died a few years ago. And he knows who their next hit will be, unless he can get to her first… his first love – Melissa. He hasn’t seen her in years. He should hate her. But … PASSION is James Bond for girls: a high-octane, super-charged romantic chase story, about two people who were once in love and are now not just fighting their feelings, they’re fighting for their lives. From the dreaming spires of Oxford, to New York and across Europe, it’s a dazzling, swooning, unputdownable tour-de-force from the multi-million bestselling author Louise Bagshawe.
“A glamorous, pacy blockbuster reminiscent of Jackie Collins. Half thriller, half love story it’s addictive reading” Daily Express.
