journey to Brighton took an hour by train, and then a taxi ride out
to the business premises. Red & Black based their headquarters in
a mansion, in the middle of nowhere. Brighton was filled with the
same looking houses as mine. Four and five storey houses, on terraced
streets. If they were anything like mine, the homes used to have
whole families living in them two hundred years ago but now were
split into flats. When I gave the address to the taxi driver, he told
me it would be a half hour drive and to get comfortable. Driving
along the gravel path to the mansion and across the car park, my
mouth was open with awe at the architecture of the old building.
Maybe in my previous life, I lived in the 1800s and owned a house
like mine when it was brand new. They drew me in, fascinated me to
the point I wanted to scour every inch of the place. I’d hoped to
find a hidden box of letters in my house and discover a mystery from
years gone by, but never did. I
paid the driver and stood looking up at the large windows, craning my
neck back, scanning the rooms and the gargoyles that protected the
building. A woman waved from the window to my left, she had a
handsome man stood to her right who nodded in my direction. It was
difficult to tell who they were as the sun glinted off the leaded
windows. I waved back and ducked in through the main door to
here to meet with Erin Devlin, my name is Leia Bryant,” I said to
the girl behind the desk. “I
know who you are, Ms Bryant, I’m a big fan. It’s great that you
agreed to the meeting, I hope you say yes to what they’re
proposing,” the young girl said. Her
nose ring glinted in the overhead light, making her nose look cute.
She rounded the desk where I could see her short blue tartan over
thick white tights. I was sweltering in my light jacket, I couldn’t
imagine how warm she would be in her thick roll neck white jumper. It
was April but felt like summer. “I’m
Becky, if you need anything at all while you’re here, let me know,”
she said over her shoulder. Leading
the way through the corridors, we passed recording studios and what
sounded like a kitchen. Turning the corner, I was met with a
glass-walled meeting room. On one side of the glass table sat four
very recognisable faces. I was only expecting to meet with Erin. Becky
held the door open for me to walk through and left me standing on the
other side. “Hi,”
I said. My
meek voice betraying the intimidation I felt. I
was a massive fan of Fragile and to see two of the band members on
the other side of the table. Shaking their hands felt surreal. Seb
introduced me to his fiancé, Tara, who looked heavily pregnant, and
I greeted Erin last. “I
wasn’t expecting to see all four of you, I’m delighted to meet
you all,” I said in a more firm tone. “We
thought we would come in numbers to persuade you to say yes,” Erin
offered first. Grateful
for the glass and a pitcher of water, I poured myself a drink and
listened to their idea. Erin wasted no time telling me their plan and
when she finished, there was a hushed silence for a few moments until
Tara groaned. Seb immediately checked she wasn’t going into labour
and then stood behind Tara to rub her shoulders. While I watched the
love dance back and forth between them, I felt a spike of envy. I had
given up any hope of finding a decent man to marry, spending too many
years on the road and never in one city for longer than a week.
Having a holiday was a luxury. There was always another sought-after
modelling job that I knew would dry up one day. I figured I would
sleep when my contracts stopped. Now that I had the chance to take
time off, the hottest record label in music was offering me a
starring role in a music video for Maverick. I was to be Donovan’s
love interest, a story that spanned eighty years in a six-minute
video. My first thought was that Margo would be pissed off when she
found out what they expected me to do with Dreamboat
Donovan. I hoped she forgave me because I was saying yes to this job.
They want me to kiss Donovan
far along are you, Tara?” I asked to distract my attention away
from my overzealous sister and her constant stream of GIFs of pop
video kisses. “I’m
due any minute, it could happen at any moment, Leia. The twins are
kicking the hell out of my bladder, and I will give them their first
telling off as soon as I give birth. I swear they already know how to
bicker and fight like proper siblings.” I
laughed at her comment, nodding. “I
have six siblings, I can relate.” “Six,”
Seb said. “Don’t get any ideas,” his comment was aimed at Tara. “You
know how babies are made, right?”

From the beloved author of Comeback Love and Wherever There Is Light, comes a novel about the life-changing journey of a young man who travels from New Jersey to Khrushchev’s Russia and the beaches of Southern France as he finds love and discovers the long-hidden secrets about his heritage.
In 1950s New Jersey, Michael Daniels launches a radio show in the storage room of his Russian-Jewish grandmother’s candy store. Not only does the show become a local hit because of his running satires of USSR leader Nikita Khrushchev, but half a world away, it picks up listeners in a small Soviet city.
There, with rock and roll leaking in through bootlegged airwaves, Yulianna Kosoy—a war orphan in her mid-twenties—is sneaking American goods into the country with her boss, Der Schmuggler.
But just as Michael’s radio show is taking off, his grandmother is …
