Claudia: The last thing I want is a sugar daddy.
I might only be twenty-four, but I've always been the sensible one. From my boring call centre job right down to my practical wardrobe; impulsive and extravagant are not part of my usual vocabulary. Ascot, the home of British horse racing might be my home as well, but the filthy rich visitors blocking my route home are more a nuisance than a thrill.
Until one of them catches my eye... And I can't help myself but invite him into my home.
Peter: It was the worst day of my life, until suddenly it wasn't.
All my life I've worked hard to make it to the top of my field, to give my wife all she's ever wanted. After a day of sipping champagne and watching the races, an indiscretion of hers with a colleague changes my picture-perfect middle class life forever. I haven't a clue where I'm going, I just know I can't stand the sight of either of them and I run; right into the arms of a girl nearly half my age.
Is it still cheating, if she's done it to me first? I'd like to think it's not. It's just a chance at a new beginning.
It all begins with a chance meeting at the side of the road. Neither of them could foresee just where their one night of passion would lead. Can love conquer all, from class differences to age gaps?
Read on and find out.
Chance Encounters is a series of stand-alone novellas set in jolly old England, following a set of loosely connected people as they find love in unexpected places. What do they have in common? When they meet, it is purely by chance, yet passion strikes immediately. They'll have to deal with the consequences of their actions once the sun comes up...
