All 3 strands of this tale are interwoven so seamlessly that you forget they are separate. The scene where Emilia Fox's character Kirstie finally succumbs to O-T Fagbenle's Jake, is one of the most erotic (yet in no way salacious or pornographic) I have seen on a BBC TV drama. O-T is really hot stuff! At the same time the underlying story of Mills & Boon itself is sufficiently well fleshed out (excuse the pun) to be believable and top hold the attention. The third strand, of the fantasising author manqué also rings true, if a little over the top (but since much of it takes place in her head, reality does not necessarily come into it. All in all this is a drama I have watched twice on TV and would happily watch again - plenty to interest and hold the attention.
