Love & LiesLeast Said – Pamela Fudge

(Available in hardback and as an e-book September 2016)

Wendy and Jon Hammond were childless, but not through choice. Jon blamed Wendy’s (non-existent) weight problem rather than accept that the problem is actually his low sperm count. When Wendy jumps to the conclusion that Jon is having an affair with someone at work, she has a one night stand with a rugby playing father-of-four, fully accepting that she might get pregnant. She does, but whether the rugby player or Jon is the father is not known. She never told Jon about the one night stand and he accepted without question that he was the father of the child – a boy, William, now aged 6. Life has been good and her secret remains safe, but all that is about to change, starting the day Wendy comes face to face with the guy she had the affair with and he asks, Hey, don’t I know you from somewhere?’

Love & Lies

Romantic Melody – Pamela Fudge

(Now available as an e-book - first published 1993)

When you dare to play with fire, there’s no escaping the heat.
Anyone would think Dizzie Wallace has it all. She loves her career spinning records at local clubs and parties, and she has a sort-of boyfriend she’s…fond of.

But no spark, no all-consuming passion. Nothing like the heart-pounding, teenage crush she once had on Lyle Tarrant, who for years has existed on the periphery of her life, a bossy, brooding guardian angel.

When she finds out he’s back in town, her stomach flips in a way she’s never felt for anyone else. And she can’t resist indulging in a little harmless flirting. But that’s as far as it can go. After all, she’s dating someone, and Lyle’s engaged.

Except rekindling a few old sparks could accidentally burn down a few bridges…and change the course of their lives.

This Retro Romance reprint was originally published in 1993 by Robert Hale, Ltd.

Just as she was coming round to the idea that her family might have been right about her changing her mind when she met ‘the one,’ they in turn confided in her that she was the one who had the right idea after all. Is Ellen to blame when relationships start to fail? And what is she going to do about it?
