    If you like romance but are tired of predicable endings then you might like to try this general fiction with a romantic twist.

    Intrigue, scandal, suspense, and romance peppered with humour tell how one mans influence on a school of wayward girls and their teachers changes their lives in ways none of them would imagine and eventually his own.

    Big Al did a review  :). He said it was interesting, engaging, fun and entertaining, which I was thrilled with as I wasn't sure if it would appeal to male readers. But he didn't like the ending. I've now made some changes, which should solve these issues  :).

    Just got this review of the cover from Joel Friedlander  :)

    With the Headmaster's Approval



    JF: Lovely and effective, although the title looks like its being squeezed up against the top trim.
