FEBRUARY OR FOREVER by Juliet Madison
Available worldwide from all ebook retailers 1st February.
Published by Escape Publishing.In this heartwarming coastal romance, Escape bestselling author Juliet Madison asks, what if your favourite celebrity fell in love with you?
Yoga teacher and single mother, Chrissie Burns has a plan: move into the rundown beach house left to her by her deceased aunt, renovate it, sell it, and move on. The scene of a terrible accident years ago, the house needs to get out of Chrissie’s hands as soon as possible.
But Tarrin’s Bay, where the house stands, has more to offer than bad memories. The town is lovely, the people friendly, and even Chrissie’s young son finds friends and begins coming out of his shell. Employed at Serendipity Retreat as a yoga instructor, Chrissie is shocked to be given the role of private teacher to Drew Williams, Australia’s top singer/songwriter for the month.
Relationships between instructors and clients are strictly forbidden, but Drew draws happiness out of Chrissie with his down-to-earth nature and sense of humour. Days of stretching and bending may bring Chrissie unexpected peace and strength, but she knows that this interlude must end, and there’s no pose or position to aid her when Drew walks away and leaves her broken-hearted.
‘We have a V.I.P. guest staying with us for the month of February, arrived last night. He’s requested daily yoga sessions — private sessions — and I assured him we could accommodate his request.’
Wow, only a few days in a new job and she was getting a promotion? Just what she needed; a chance to expand her experience and keep busy and focused on work. ‘Of course, I can do that.’ Chrissie thought it was probably some corporate guy on stress leave, needing a month of rejuvenation.
‘Now, I know you can only do five days a week and the occasional Saturday, but he is fine with that. I said you would create a personal program for him to practise on his own time too, to get the most out of his stay.’
‘Definitely.’ Creating individual yoga programs was one of her favourite parts of the job. She loved selecting the poses to suit each person’s needs and putting them together into an exercise prescription. Yoga was more than exercise; it was about unifying the body, mind, and spirit.
‘Great.’ Helena clapped her hands together. ‘Now there’s one other thing,’ she picked up a manila folder, ‘I’ll need you to sign a legal document agreeing to keep the knowledge of his visit to yourself. His lawyer has requested complete discretion and privacy during his stay. Can I count on you for your professionalism?’
Man, who was this guy? Oh my God. What if he was some big name politician…did politicians even do yoga? She couldn’t imagine the pollies taking a break during Question Time for a spot of downward dog.
‘I won’t say a word to anyone,’ Chrissie replied, her brows drawing together. ‘Who is the guest?’
Helena opened her mouth but closed it again, then led Chrissie to the corner window of the office which had a snippet of a view into the V.I.P. garden. ‘See for yourself.’
Curiosity tingled inside as Chrissie peered out the window. Her heart beat faster in anticipation then skidded to a halt at the sight of the man. There, sitting on the garden swing, swaying back and forth with a guitar on his lap, was none other than the owner of the voice that had permeated her car only minutes before.
