CAUGHT IN A LIE
‘Dating is like psychological warfare, and all’s fair in love and war.’
Julianne Carrell is a bored Londoner who flits between shops, parties and men. When asked to seduce a political candidate for more money than she’s ever seen, she thinks that setting a honey trap will be exciting. But then she finds out that she already knows her target: Thomas Matthews. Years ago, she had a one-night stand with him behind his girlfriend’s back. Will he remember her?
As Julianne gets closer to Thomas, she realises she’s being played by powerful people who want him fully under their control. She might lose out on her money if Thomas finds out the truth about her, but soon she learns that there’s even more at stake: her life.

When she falls for corrupt detective Sean, she wonders whether she can learn to trust him and put a life of crime behind her. But Vincent, her father’s violent lieutenant, wants her for himself, and he reminds her that she shouldn’t trust anyone.
