CASSIE & BENNETT
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.
THE SECRET OF THE VAL
Cassie, spellbound, waited in anticipation for Bennett’s first appearance. The stage was becoming increasingly foggy, and she wondered what the stage crew was using to make it so atmospheric, especially when the scenes took place in the dark London streets.
“What did they use for the fog?” Cassie whispered to the playwright. “Is it dry ice or something?”
Shelly looked at her in amusement. “Cassie, There’s no fog out there.”
Cassie blinked. “I can see it on stage. It looks almost like smoke. Starlit smoke.”
Shelly chuckled. “Ask Gabby or Ian if they can see it.”
Cassie frowned but did.
Gabby looked at her in puzzlement. “I can’t see any fog or smoke, Cassie.” She grinned wickedly. “Perhaps you need to bring your reading glasses with you.”
Cassie felt a slight shiver wriggle down her spine. “If it’s not fog, what is it?”
Susan Mac Nicol (Sue to most people) was born in Headingly, Leeds in the United Kingdom. When she was eight years old, her family emigrated 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 colour 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.
