    Summary

    Mycroft Holmes is a successful, yet reclusive, mystery writer whose books have topped bestseller lists for years. Mycroft’s agent, Anthea, nearly had to resort to torture to persuade the writer to allow a studio the rights to film one of his books and he only agreed after a section was added to the contract that gave him final say on the choice of actors to play the detective in his novel. The studio wants the highly profitable and extremely sexy Greg Lestrade for the role, but Mycroft isn’t happy with the choice, since Greg’s films don't fit the more cerebral tone of the novel being filmed.

    Greg, however, is desperate for the role, as he’s wanted to break out of the pigeonhole he’s been confined to, acting wise, and truly get the chance to show his skills as a serious actor. The studio finally pulls Greg from a publicity tour for his latest film and sends him to Mycroft’s remote country home to do some persuading. Once there, after getting to know the secretive, brilliant and slightly-eccentric Mycroft Holmes, Greg isn’t certain which ranks higher on his persuading list - him getting a role he dearly wants or him getting a man he dearly wants. One of those however, might be winning by a nose…

    I have had this novel (that's a good thing) on my reading list for over a year now, and I finally got to read it! What a beautiful story for our characters to inhabit. I was amazed you were able to incorporate so many of the side characters into this grand story of both the film and publishing industry. You were able to provide so much detail to the workings of each. Thank you for all your research, your attention to detail, and the laughter you threw in to keep the story moving. This was well worth the wait!

    Very long Mystrade to read.

    “It was the lowest of low blows, and Anthea knew it, but she also knew it was the truth and, when her most eccentric client needed the truth, she wasn’t afraid to give it. Mycroft had a phenomenal mind and a true talent for writing, but until the segue into mystery writing, he’d amassed to his name the sum of several highly-regarded academic tomes and a below-average bodyweight since he could scarcely keep himself fed on the profits from them, given the number of people who appreciated detailed and incisive treatments of the government of ancient Assyria or some other faraway land could happily sit around a table at her favorite pub.”

    Greg, a film star, meets with the highly eccentric and reclusive writer Mycroft Homes. Epic levels of cuteness and fluff ensue, as well as a high proportion of amusement.
