BURNING UP

Author(s): 
Successful actor Lucas Grant lives in Sydney but is recuperating in an isolated mountain house when Sophie Gallagher arrives as his personal chef. She expects Grant to be shallow, conceited and egotistical, but the sensual attraction between them is fast, and soon she's sleeping with him. But when she tells him she loves him, he turns on her. Lucas has commitment issues so big they've kept him isolated and totally alone. Can the love of a good woman bring him around? Burning Up (3), by Sarah Mayberry, is an emotional, if somewhat unbelievable, story. Their relationship never seems quite real, so the happy ending doesn't ring true.
