Must Love Fashion


A 2018 Golden Leaf Finalist! 

Darling Cove Book #1

Award-Winning Author Deborah Garland’s debut, Must Love Fashion, a steamy office romance that warns: Love may show up even if you’re not ready for it.

A 2018 Golden Leaf Finalist and the book Kirkus Reviews called “a fun and sexy romp through the world of high fashion.”

In debt and in need of a new career, Gwen Mallory charms the pants off everyone at her Prada interview and lands her dream job. After she meets her hot, but guarded and brooding coworker, Andrew Morgan, she wants his pants off.

And his shirt. And the shoes. Don’t forget the tie too! Prada, Prada, Prada, all rolled up in a ball on her bedroom floor.

Andrew has a good excuse to be less than charming, he is a grieving widower. He never expected to lose his wife and isn’t ready to love again. If only he could get Gwen out of his thoughts. Dirty, confusing thoughts about a woman he has to work with.

And travel with. He’s going insane.

Just when Andrew gives in to his desires and opens his heart, can he look past Gwen’s  shocking secret?

Turn back the clock to the summer before Gwen Mallory and Andrew Morgan collided in the exciting world of fashion.

Andrew is trying to move on with his life, but when he’s forced to go through a ceremony for his late wife, it sets him back. His boss is nagging him to fill a key PR position before a fashion show in LA and women are circling the wagons to get a piece of the former model. Hoping to reset his life, Andrew is keeping his head down at Prada and waiting for the pain to go away.

Gwen wants respect. Her job as a promotions manager at a failing lingerie designer is getting tougher by the day. But she has bills pay. Her soon-to-be ex-husband left her with a house. Now he’s getting remarried and taking all of her furniture! It’s time for a fresh start.

A help wanted ad titled, Must Love Fashion, is in her future. And a tall, handsome brokenhearted man that only a nice girl from the North Fork with a great family can fix right up.
