The third standalone novel in CJ Duggan's sexy and addictive HEART OF THE CITY series from the internationally bestselling author of the SUMMER and PARADISE series.
Like so many of her university friends, Kate Brown is London bound, but unlike her friends - who had the chance to enjoy the beer, sights and attractions of the UK - Kate is instead visiting her grandmother (who may or may not be the devil).
Wanting nothing more than to be a normal, independent twenty-something living it up in ol' London town, Kate finds herself a prisoner in her grandmother's Kensington terrace, daydreaming about the holiday that could have been. But when Kate is almost run over by the ridiculously good looking Jack Baker, it leaves her wondering if being out and about is such a good idea after all, especially when she catches herself laughing at his jokes.
One thing Kate knows for sure is that she has to avoid Jack at all costs. But with her balcony facing his, you can pretty much guarantee Kate's London adventure is going to be anything but boring . . .

Customer ReviewsSee All
Outstanding piece of work
Like all of C.J Duggan’s work, you fall in love with Main character aka Kate and follow her through her journey through self discovery and love. A fell good story that makes me smile and wants the story to never end!
Two down & two to go. Guess that says it all. Quirky story of mixed characters under the one roof with of course a fitting conclusion. It’s rather an enjoyable read, what more can I say! Love the style of this author that delves in & makes the reader visualize, dream & believe.
C.J. on London Bound
London Bound is the third installment in “Heart of the City” series. It can also read as a stadalone title as none of the characters cross over through the series.
Katherine Brown aka Kate is from Australia and has flown to London to stay with her Nanna Joy. Kate is a writer of a blog which is named “Kate on the Thames”. She writes about Beauty, Fashion and Travel. In the three weeks Kate has been in London she has felt like a prisioner in her own home as Nanna Joy feels that the streets are once not what they used to be and would rather Kate stay inside. With this Kate has had no inspiration to write on her blog. Kate has the whole entire top floor of the house. She has access to everything on this floor, except for one room and is not allowed to open this door. One day while Kate is looking for an umbrella, while Nanna Joy is out with Vera her carer, she decides to open this door and stumbles onto something that takes her breath away. This room is beyond her imagination and just may have everything she needs for the inspiration to start writing on “Kate on the Thames”.
Mr Jack Baker is everything you would imagine in tall, dark and handsome among other swoony traits. Jack is Kate’s next door neighbour and seems very intriged and knows how to rub her the wrong way. Jack Baker is very mysterious with what he does, while Jack dresses and drives an Aston Marin and very James Bond…
Jack and Kate meet on the very first day of her arriving in London and nearly gets hit by Jack’s Aston Martin. Then they run into each other at a pub which gets Kate all flustered over seeing the mysterious Jake Baker. Over the next few weeks Kate and Jack become friendly and leads into a frienship over the terrace of each other’s homes. Kate spends the day in the mysterious room of Nanna Joy’s home which has her with so much excitement and has to share it with someone and the last person she thought Kate would share it with is Mr Jack Baker. Jack is overwhelmd with what Kate has created which is his speciality.
“Kate on the Thames” has caught the attention of “London Bound” which is owned by none other Mr Jack Baker…
WOW what I would do to be in Kate’s shoes right now with end full of Contour and to be in London. C.J. has written such a beautiful story that it makes you fall in love with London along with Beauty, Fashion and Travel. C.J. has written this story just like what Kate has acheived with “Kate on the Thames”.
“C.J. on London Bound”.
For all love of Beauty, Fashion and Travel and to follow your dreams this book is for you. For me it was for Travel but to be given the chance to come across anything like the Fashion Kate has at her fingertips would be a dream come true. But for now I will take the Travel.
