The morning after the New Year’s Eve before...

Waking up to a new year with a killer hangover and hazy memories of a seriously hot hook-up the night before leaves Portia in an awkward situation... Did I, or didn’t I? The only way she’s going to find out is by standing up to the guy in question.

With no regrets, Justin is willing to play the gentleman and save Portia her embarrassment. Only then he gets a text saying, come over… and he’s not gonna lie – this is friends with a lot of benefits!

But no matter how good the sex is, there’s one thing Justin’s not down with: being this shallow rich girl’s dirty little secret...

‘Can we do coffee at lunchtime?’ It was from Portia.

I glanced over at her desk, but I couldn’t see anything other than her arm.

‘Okay. What time?’

‘12.30, but meet me in Starbucks.’

‘Ashamed of me, baby?’

There was no reply. I had a feeling the conversation was gonna go something like––don’t tell anyone I hooked up with you.

Well we were from different leagues. The girl was arrogant and preppy. The whole world seemed as if it was beneath her the way she stuck her pretty little nose up in the air. Although her tastes had turned to Jason, she’d had her eye on him for weeks. Me… I was just the one who was there when she’d got drunk.

I looked up and said something about the party to Jason, but he just grunted, ignoring me and glancing at Mr. Rees’s office. The boss wasn’t in yet. 
Jason looked over at the door into the open plan office.

I gave up making any effort to talk. It seemed the whole place was in a bad mood today. I focused on getting my pages done.

At eleven-thirty, not that I was clock checking, Portia got up and headed for the toilets. She was slender, but she was slender with hips. The girl had some junk in her trunk for sure, Beyoncé style, and she had a pencil skirt on today that exaggerated the movement of her hips as she walked across the open plan room weaving between desks. The movement thrust the image of her ass in an emerald bikini into my head. My temperature soared.

I got up, without even thinking about it––and followed.
When I got in there, I found myself hovering outside the women’s like a pervert.

Slipping my hands into my back pockets, I leaned against the wall. She took a couple of minutes to come out, but when she did her pretty pouted lips parted in an ‘o’ and she turned pink… tipping up her chin, and her pretty little nose, with a look that implied disgust, like I smelled bad.

I shifted off the wall and stepped forward. “Portia, we need to talk.”

“We’re going to talk, at lunchtime. Away from the office.” Her words were a sharp, crisp rejection; spoken in her slightly British––perfectly rounded and toned, I’m-up-here-and-you’re-down-there––accent. Then she just walked past me, her body expressing her usual demeanor that said: stay away from me, you’re worth nothing.

Shit. She was definitely regretting what had happened––awkward.

About the Author: 

Jane is a writer of authentic, passionate and emotional Historical and New Adult romance and author of a No.1 bestselling Historical Novel,'The Illicit Love of a Courtesan, as well as a Kindle overall Top 25, bestselling author.

She began her first historical novel at sixteen, but a life full of adversity derailed her as she lives with the restrictions of Ankylosing Spondylitis.

When she finally completed a novel it was because she was determined not to reach forty still saying, I want to write.

Now Jane is writing a Regency series as well as contemporary, new adult, stories and she is thrilled to be giving her characters life in others' imaginations at last.

You might think that Jane was inspired to write by Jane Austen, especially as she lives near Bath in the United Kingdom, but you would be wrong. Jane's favourite author is Anya Seton, and the book which drew her into the bliss of falling into historical imagination was 'Katherine' a story crafted from reality.

Jane has drawn on this inspiration to discover other real-life love stories, reading memoirs and letters to capture elements of the past, and she uses these to create more realistic plots.

'Basically I love history and I am sucker for a love story. I love the feeling of falling in love; it's wonderful being able to do it time and time again in fiction.'

Jane is also a Chartered Member of the Institute of Personnel and Development in the United Kingdom, and uses this specialist understanding of people to bring her characters to life.
