Holiday in the Hills

Location(s): Tenerife

Genre(s): RomCom

Era(s): Contemporary

How do you write a romance novel with a broken heart?

Ivy is suffering from writer’s block after a disastrous affair with her (now ex) publisher. Her agent suggests an extended holiday to get her writing career back on track – 6 months in a stunning villa on the gorgeous island of Tenerife.

No WiFi, no TV, no distractions.

Except for the very attractive, very lovely Sebastián who comes by every day to clean the pool. Soon Ivy’s on a roll with her new novel and her relationship with Sebastián is growing into something more, despite the secrets he’s keeping.

But her ex isn’t done with her – professionally or personally. And with Sebastián keeping secrets, maybe a return to London is best…
