Lingerie Wars 
by Janet Elizabeth Henderson
Published June 14th 2013


“Come on, Kirsty,” her mum said. “Come across the road with us.”
Kirsty looked up from her laptop, which was still working, thank goodness.
“No. I’m not giving him the satisfaction.”
“But it looks like fun,” said Jean.
Shona elbowed her in the ribs and told her off in a look.
“We can scope the place out for future attacks,” said Shona. “Maybe we can sabotage things while we’re there.”
“I’m still not coming.”
“Kirsty Campbell, I didn’t raise you to be a coward. You can face the man in good grace, compliment him on his opening and then tell everyone you have better underwear.”

Jean started to giggle.


Englishman Lake Benson loaned his life savings to his dippy sister so that she could buy a shop. It was a big mistake. His sister has been steadily flushing his money down the drain – and now he wants it back. Years in the special forces taught Lake that if you want a job done, do it yourself. So he steps in to make the shop profitable, sell it and get his money back. The only problem is, the business is an underwear shop. And all Lake knows about underwear can be summed up in how fast he can unsnap a bra. To make matters worse, the tiny highland town already has a lingerie shop. A successful one, run by an ex-lingerie model. A very gorgeous ex-lingerie model, who’s distracting him from his mission more than he’d like to admit. If Lake wants to get his savings back, and get out of Scotland, he only has one option – wipe out the competition. 

Kirsty Campbell has spent years rebuilding her life after she woke up in hospital in Spain to find her body scarred, and her ex-fiance had run off with all her money. The last thing she needs is a cocky, English soldier-boy trying to ruin all she has left. Her home town is only too happy to help her fight the latest English invasion, although Lake is beginning to sway them with his sex appeal and cut price knickers. With the help of her mother, and the retired ladies of Knit or Die, Kirsty sets about making sure that her shop is the last one standing in Invertary.

It’s Scotland versus England as you've never seen it before. It’s lingerie war.

What's your Teaser this week?
