Publisher Description

All the world’s a stage . . . but life doesn’t come with a script.


Posh boy Tristan Goldsmith has one last summer of freedom before he joins the family firm in New York—no more farting around on stage, as his father puts it. But the classically trained actor can’t resist when the Shamwell Amateur Dramatics Society begs him to take a leading role in their production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. As an added incentive, he’ll be giving private acting lessons to a gorgeous local handyman who’s been curiously resistant to Tristan’s advances.


As a late-diagnosed dyslexic still struggling with literacy, Con Izzard’s never dared to act before. With arrogant yet charming Tristan helping him with his lines, he finally has his chance to shine. But Con’s determined not to start a romance with a man he’s convinced only wants a casual fling.


Tristan’s never been one to back down from a challenge, especially when he realises his attraction to the tall, muscular handyman isn’t just physical. Just as he thinks he’s finally won Con’s heart—and given his own in return—disaster strikes with a slip of the tongue that shatters Con’s trust and sends him running for cover. This show may be over before the curtain’s even opened.



(Note: This is a revised second edition, originally published elsewhere.)

A pas de deux "PLAYED"

JL Merrow's first "Caught" novella teases her reader with a delightful descriptive romance tale, followed with a second inspired amusing fun read about a 23 year old actor (Tristan) who inherits his grand nanny's residence, a black and white cat (Meggie #2) and a frog (Prince) residing behind the stove in the kitchen. Calling "help" to catch the frog, the 6'2" handsome handyman arrives and the snag game of wits spirals into uncharted waters, with inspired dialogue, a very interesting cast of village characters keeping the the wonderful laugh out read a joy!
