Product Description

Product Description

Saskia Lucas is on yet another luxury summer holiday in an exotic location. This time it’s in the Algarve, in the south of Portugal.

She’s with Franklin, the man that she likes to refer to as her ‘provider’. Or as some might say, her Sugar Daddy.

A wealthy businessman, and close on forty years older than her, Franklin and Saskia have little in common. Apart from a taste for the finer things in life.

Two years into the relationship, Saskia has expensive clothes, the latest handbags, lots of shoes, perfect blonde hair... and new boobs.

Everything she ever wanted.

Except for love.

Unknown to Franklin, Saskia is still nursing a broken heart from a relationship she had when she was only nineteen with a surfer named Kirstan.

And when Franklin abandons Saskia for a couple of days to play golf she decides to book some surfing lessons.

But she is in for a shock.

One that will change her life forever.

Will Saskia get her happily ever after and realise there may be more to life than money and shoes?

Or is loving sometimes just for the summer?

'Summer Loving' is sparkling romantic comedy, perfect for fans of Jane Green and Sophie Kinsella. It is the perfect read for summer days by the pool.

‘Summer'll have a blast!’ Holly Kinsella, author of 'Uptown Girl'.

Nicola Yeager was born in Lincoln to Dutch parents and is married with two children. She currently lives in London and Amsterdam. She is the author of two novellas, Picture Imperfect and The Spa Day (previously published as Christmas Without Holly).

Endeavour Press is the UK's leading independent publisher of digital books.

More About the Author

Nicola Yeager is a writer and book reviewer. After several years working as a journalist for a variety of publications, she started writing novellas. Her first in the chick lit genre, Christmas Without Holly (also titled The Spa Day), was a critical success and an Amazon best seller. She followed this up with Picture Imperfect, which continued the gritty, witty, first person style of her debut and was also a best seller. After two novellas, she produced her first full length novel 'Summer Loving' and has now released her second novel 'Miss Match'.

'The Spa Day' (Christmas Without Holly), 'Picture Imperfect' and 'Summer Loving' are now available as one eBook under the title 'Affairs of the Heart'.

Although born in Lincoln, she has lived in London for almost ten years and lives with her husband and two small children. Her hobbies include swimming and slimming!

Nicola Yeager's Delicious Pancake Recipe.
(As specially taught to her by her mother)

This recipe was taught to me by my mother and the recipe was passed down to her from her mother, who was my grandmother and also my mother's mother (not my father's mother, who spent most of her life in prison in Vught). Recipes that are passed down from one mother to another mother are always better than recipes that a top chef has made up, recipes that you find in a cookbook, or other non-mother/non-grandmother recipes, whatever they may be. Here is my recipe for delicious pancakes. These can be eaten at any time of the day, but are particularly yummy as a breakfast treat or snack. They can also replace all other meals, if you wish, or be eaten inbetween meals, or as an addition to meals, or can be eaten while at work in the toilets, or can be eaten secretly from your lap while you are eating at a restaurant.

Step 1. Drive to nearest supermarket and buy a packet of ready-made pancakes. Pay with cash, so nothing incriminating shows up on your bank statement. Choose a checkout lane with no other people in it to avoid making conversation. Avoid chummy chat with the checkout person and do not make eye contact with them.

Step 2. Drive home with the pancakes in a supermarket carrier bag; preferably placed carefully on the passenger seat (you should always be alone when making purchases of this type. As the pancakes are on the passenger seat, you may talk to the pancakes as if they are a real passenger. Gossip and/or smutty love talk are both acceptable. Factual conversation (e.g. scientific theories) may not be discussed as this will only serve to bore the pancakes and make them taste funny.

Step 3. Get inside house/flat/bedsit/hotel room and throw your coat on the floor. Put some of the pancakes (two, three or preferably all of them) into the oven and heat up according to the instructions on the packet. Remove all clothes apart from bra and pants (just pants if you are a man), in case someone comes to the door asking about the pancake smell.

Step 4. When the pancakes are ready, take them out of the oven and put them on a plate. Unplug the telephone or switch mobile off. Make sure you use a large plate and that it has been cleaned since the last time you or a guest or a social worker used it. Eating the pancakes straight off the kitchen surface or even the floor is acceptable.

Step 5. Using a knife, smear jam, marmalade, Nutella, treacle or peanut butter over the pancakes. Possibly all of these things mixed together. You may also drizzle maple syrup over them and add a squeeze of lemon, if you wish. Bacon can also be added, according to taste, and a few spoonfuls of sugar. If you have time, a sausage can also be placed atop the pancakes.

Step 6. Using a fork or other utensil, shove the pancakes into your mouth until you have eaten every last one. You may want to watch an erotic DVD while you are doing this. Lick the plate clean while watching the DVD for added erotic atmosphere. Erotic DVDs with a pancake theme are the best, I find.

Step 7. Place plate in sink. Throw empty pancake packet in the bin. Push the packet to the bottom of the bin so no one knows it's there and put other rubbish over it. Do washing up later or just throw plate/fork away as well. Hide erotic DVD inside one of your recipe books that no one ever reads, particularly you.

Note: you may want to drink something with your pancakes. I usually find that tea, coffee or Coca Cola make excellent accompanying drinks to pancakes, unless you fill the pancakes with huge slabs of marzipan, as I do. If you decide to use huge slabs of marzipan, I would avoid drinking Coca Cola, as the marzipan is so sweet that you won't be able to taste the Coca Cola properly, which is a waste of good Coca Cola.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sooooooooo good!!!! 3 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to admit, this story had me blubbing on at least half a dozen different occasions (and I never blub at chick lit!!). I'd loved Nicola Yeager's previous novellas (and this is much longer than a novella. Does that make it a novel?) but I wasn't expecting to be so moved by this, her latest. At first, you can feel little sympathy for the heroine, Saskia Lucas, who lives a spoilt life of pampered luxury at the expense of a much older man (she's late twenties, he's almost seventy!). We find her on holiday with him in Portugal and at first might be a little envious of her lifestyle. But as soon as we get to know her better and learn about her past, we realise that she has, for want of a better phrase, sold her soul, and is dying inside. This is made all the more poignant by the flashbacks to the time she spent in Cornwall as a nineteen year old, and by the details of how she met the love of her life, a local surfer called Kirstan, and how they parted ways (God - my eyes are filling with tears as I'm typing this! Damn you, Yeager!). I won't spoil the story for you, but you really, really have to read this. It's written with Yeager's usual witty, punchy, sparkling style and has loads of great characters, from the repellent, creepy Estelle, to the lovely, sexy Australian surfing instructress Janica. I wish I'd saved this for my holiday in three weeks time, but I guess I'll have to read it all over again. Can't wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun chick lit 3 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was just packing for my holiday when this was recommended to me by Amazon- a perfect summer read. I have to admit I found Saskia a bit annoying and shallow at the start and didn't really feel that sorry for her- despite all her whinging about how terrible Franklin treated her. But once you met Kirstan it all became clear. With some really funny moments, this is a sweet and sexy read- I loved it in the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best one yet 1 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I've read all of Nicola Yeager's books and I have to say the only thing that let them down in the past a bit was the length. Whilst I'm growing to love the novella, a great train read- I was pleased this was a bit longer. You really got to know Saskia and all her troubles. Tybalt was hilarious as well - I'm surprised Saskia didn't chuck her champers at him!

Great book for reading on the beach. Predictable storyline but still good nonetheless. Ready for the next one by the same author.

4.0 out of 5 stars A light-hearted read with a moral in the tale. 25 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the second Nicola Yeager book that I have read and I enjoyed both.
At the outset it seems that Saskia has everything she could want in life. The pampered mistress of a wealthy older man. She wants for nothing...or so it would seem. Designer clothes, luxury holidays, anything that money could buy. She has even managed to come to terms with losing the love of her life, by not dwelling on the past. That is until a holiday in Portugal with her lover Franklin. Then the past comes back to knock her for six.
One wonders what decisions we would make under the same circumstances.
This would make an ideal holiday read.

I really enjoyed reading this story. It's a lighthearted read with a strong message within it - money doesn't buy love or happiness. Well worth a read.
