Kiss Chase

By Fiona Walker

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A re-issue of Fiona Walker's hilarious tale of love, lust and revenge with a stunning new jacket look.

Felix Sylvian is a charming, silken-tongued dilettante; he has the sex-appeal of a school-girl's day-dream and the soul of a poet. But he has one nasty habit he can't seem to break: a sadistic tendency to ride rough-shod over any girl foolish enough to fall for him.
Saskia Seaton is Felix's latest victim. Once a beautiful, precocious, aspiring actress, she is now a suicidal wreck after a whirlwind affair with Felix and a force ten finale. Retreating to lick her wounded pride, she decides she wants poetic justice.
And her friend Phoebe's the one to get it. With Saskia's help, Phoebe will become Felix's dream woman. She will pursue him across his London playground and seduce him until he falls in love with her and then she will drop him just as he has so many women in the past. But Phoebe doesn't realise that when she tries to break Felix's nasty habit, she'll find herself breaking her own heart.
