Bennett Saville is sexy. At the peak of his career, the English star of stage and screen is everything a woman might desire, as fiancée Cassandra Wallace well knows. Together they’ve seen the world, from L.A. to Shangri La, yet shadows persist even in the spotlight. At home they face lust, greed and ghosts from their pasts—and that’s off stage. There is also “The Val”. The aged London theatre holds a mystery four centuries old, cast in starlight and waiting to be revealed. Intensely personal, impossibly passionate, the play must go on…and Cassie and Bennett must face it together. 

Susan Mac Nicol (Sue to most people) was born in Headingly, Leeds in the United Kingdom. When she was eight years old, her family immigrated to Johannesburg in South Africa, where she remained until her and her family¹s return, with husband and two children, to the UK in December 2000.

Sue¹s career as a professional business woman was mainly in the operational side of the Financial Services and Vehicle Leasing markets. Currently her responsibilities have evolved to being the Regulatory Compliance Officer at a financial services company in Cambridge.

Having written all her life, since her first short story was published in a local youth competition when she was just eleven, in between the day job and daily life, the inspiration for the Starlight series of romance novels was born. Her characters, Cassie and Bennett, finally made their debut on the flickering screen of a laptop. The character of Bennett was inspired by someone very special and perhaps one day, if you get the chance to ask her or meet her, over a cup of good coffee, Sue might just explain who this was. She will probably smile wryly and say, Œ "Hopefully without sounding like a teenage groupie."

Her first novel was submitted to various publishers and Boroughs Publishing Group liked what they saw. Sue was offered a contract for her novels and that, as they say in the classics, was that.

Sue is a member of the Romance Writers of America and the Romantic Novelists Association here in the UK. She lives in a town house in the rural village of Bocking, in Essex, with her husband, two children and a mixed collie mongrel called Blu, so named because of his two different color eyes ­blue and brown. Sue is a voracious e book reader and a self-confessed geek and Android phone fan. Her office is in her bag most days and without all her gadgets, she confesses she could barely function.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.  It was like visiting with old friends or one of those people you meet and instantly feel like you have known forever.  I felt like I could join this group of friends and be totally at ease and welcomed like a long lost family member.  As an avid reader, this is not a totally foreign concept… however the skill with which this was accomplished was such that it wasn’t until I emerged from the book and my new friends that I realized exactly how quickly and comprehensively I had become a part of this life.

The characters are written skillfully in such a way that you really care what happens to them.   The story line had surprises around every corner and I was worried that my friends would not make it to their happily-ever-after ending that I wanted for them.

I give this book 4.5 out of 5 clouds.

    Thank you for the lovely review. I'm so glad you enjoyed the ongoing sage of Bennett and Cassie and their constant shenanigans. They do know how to get themselves into a pickle don't they. I'm hoping book 3 won't be too far away!
