Dating Mr. December
When a nice girl asks twelve men to get naked, it's sure to cause a scandal...
Emma Tremayne leaves her high-powered PR job and moves to the Lake District looking for peace, quiet-and celibacy. So perhaps it's not the best idea when, in the spirit of "community-mindedness," she agrees to help the local mountain rescue team fund raise by putting together a "tasteful" nude...more

Let me just start by stating that I love this book. I need to get all of my gushing out of the way. I have nothing but praises to dish out because this is exactly what I expect in my romance books. Dating Mr. December is a wonderfully, well written love story.

Seriously, don't read this if you are over 18 years old. The mood swings and manufactured drama are just not understandable unless you're still in high school. Unfortunately, it's written abo ...more
Decent Exposure is a light romantic read for a rainy afternoon, with fabulous descriptions of life in a tight-knit Lake District community and a very sexy male lead.

All in all I enjoyed this romantic Christmas book.
This was actually better than I expected. The author does a decent job of creating characters with some depth. There was some mis-communication here, but for the most part I thought the misunderstanding had a reasonable foundation. Will's reluctance to talk about his motives or his past were already well-established before Emma arrived on the scene. Emma's inability to trust was understandable given her past history and Will's reputation.
The initial lead in to Emma and Will (hunky Mr. December) meeting one another and becoming attracted was pretty short. Those kinds of "I like you baby" leads sometimes have me rolling my eyes a bit, since I'm eve ...more
I've been meaning to read Dating Mr. December since last Christmas, but it wasn't until now that I finally did it and I'm very glad.
Emma is a nice girl who discovered her boyfriend was cheating on her, with her boss. It wasn't pretty, and Emma just wanted to run. So she moved to Lake District to find a new job and forget all.

There she takes on a job organising a nude calendar for the local mountain rescue fundraising efforts. And meets Will Tennant, Mr July.
One really refreshing difference with this contemporary romance is its British locale and idioms. But basically what you see is what you get. From the cover and title to the dialogue and story, 'Decent Exposure' simply ...more
Decent Exposure is an archetypal RomCom: protagonists who don't get along, thrown together in an outrageous project, physical sparks fly, some angst thrown in for good measure in between, and a happy ending. It started out funnier but it made way for romantic fluff.
The hero in this book is absolutely wonderful, from everything I read I have ended up with a mental picture of Mr Perfect. But, like everyone, he does have his flaws.
A great read for lovers of passionate romance.
