A snippet from the romance.

Our heroine has accepted a dinner date at the home of an older man she has recently met.

I was nervous about Saturday night. Still, it was my opportunity to show how trendy I could be. I had a pink polo necked top that I liked – and if I teamed that with a short black skirt I’d feel about as fashionable as I could get.

I searched through my record collection for tunes Nigel might like, Adam Faith, Bert Weedon, Cliff Richard, Dusty Springfield – everything seemed so upbeat. I needed something slower, more romantic, like ‘Moon River.’ I hummed it to myself as I backcombed my hair. Maybe I should bleach it, I thought, or at least, get highlights.
