An excerpt from 'Kiss, Commander, Promise'

 This is Georgeanne’s kind of town. She’s an urbanite. She loves high-profile events, posh restaurants, the theatre, haute couture. Speaks English, French, German and halting Spanish. Loves music, loves to dance. Supports Manchester United (I’m for Arsenal.) Business suits are her body armour and boardrooms are where she fights her battles.
