Love in the Afternoon

Stephen Lestrange, a handsome painter living in Paris, was on the verge of getting married to the plain Lucy. Was he truly ready to settle down with Lucy, considering that he had first turned to her to get over someone else? When the charming Helga from his past reappears into his life, Lucy's odds appear weaker than ever. Yet she might have an advantage for winning the heart of this man, after all... The 20th-century love story set in romantic Paris is written by Rose Burghley, a pseudonym of the beloved romance writer Ida Pollock.

A must-read for fans of literary romance and surprising twists of fate.

Rose Burghley is a pseudonym of Ida Pollock (1908 – 2013), a highly successful British writer of over 125 romance novels translated into numerous languages and published across the world. Ida Pollock has sold millions of copies over her 90-year career.

Pollock began writing when she was 10 years old. Ida has travelled widely, living in several different countries. She continues to be popular amongst both her devoted fan base and new readers alike. Pollock has been referred to as the 'world's oldest novelist' who was still active at 105 and continued writing until her death.

On the occasion of her 105th birthday, Pollock was appointed honorary vice-president of the Romantic Novelists' Association, having been one of its founding members.

Ida Pollock wrote in a wide variety of pseudonyms: Joan M. Allen, Susan Barrie, Pamela Kent, Averil Ives, Anita Charles, Barbara Rowan, Jane Beaufort, Rose Burghley, Mary Whistler and Marguerite Bell.
