Read Summer's Lease Online Free - Meet the Shakespeare family: four sisters, four stories . . . four ways to find true love
Cesca Shakespeare has hit rock bottom. Six years after the play she wrote bombed at the box office, she's unable to hold down a job, keep an apartment, and worst of all her family have no idea how far she's fallen. So when her fairy Godfather offers her the use of his friend's Italian villa for the summer, she grudgingly agrees to try writing a new play. That's before she finds out the house belongs to her arch-nemesis, Sam Carlton.
When Hollywood heart-throb Sam Carlton sees his name splashed across a gossip rag, all he wants to do is hide. That's how he finds himself traveling to Italy, deciding to spend the summer in his family's empty villa on Lake Como. Except when he arrives it isn't as empty as he'd hoped.
Over the course of the hot Italian summer, Cesca and Sam have to come to terms with their pasts. What begins as a tentative friendship quickly grows into an intense attraction - and then a scorching fling. But they can't hide from reality forever . . . as their different worlds collide, Sam and Cesca face a choice: is this just a summer romance, or could their love weather even the coldest winds?
A brand new series from the bestselling author of Fix You and the Love in London series.

Summer's Lease is a great summer read which is how I spent my time reading Cesca's story. Relaxing in the sun. I had a good time in Cesca's company and most definitely also in Sam Carlton's. What I really enjoyed about Summer's Lease was the funny and easy bantering between Cesca and Sam...

After six years, Ce...

If I hadn't read the fab Fix You by this author previously then I wouldn't have picked this up. Those watercolour granny covers have me skipping to the next book pretty sharpish. Strangely though, this was an odd marriage of strait -laced romance and explicit smut which surprised me a bit really....

Sharing the tale of Cesca, one of four siste...
