After her popstar boyfriend publicly humiliates her, Jane wants to start a new life away from media scrutiny. Maybe even find a new man.
Marshall wants a partnership in his patent law firm. He just has to prove he’s totally focussed on his work. No distractions. No office romance. Unless, of course, no one knows about it.
The last thing Jane needs is to have her picture splashed on the front page of a gossip magazine. To makes matters worse, the only person who could have told the paparazzi where Jane was… is Marshall.

Desperately Seeking Jane
Ashby Thornton's ex, sexy Jane Porter has disappeared amidst rumours that she is still devastated about the TripHopper's star's betrayal. Ashby and Jane met when they were at university and, according to friends, Jane helped Ashby with his career.
"Without Jane, he would never have made it to where he is now. It's shocking how badly he treated her. She's very upset," said a close friend.
So upset, in fact, that she's gone to ground completely. Rumour has it that she may even have left Manchester in order to get away from her painful memories of her time with Ashby.
"It can't be easy", another friend said. "What with Ashby's new album being released and posters for his next tour going up all over town."
We say, Jane, wherever you are, he's not worth it!

The walk to the train station was very different from the one the night before. They walked briskly, but without urgency. It was still quite early, but the sky was turning soft pastel pink and birds were singing. Jane felt as if she was walking on air.
As they neared the station Marsh said, "Perhaps it would be better if we catch different trains. You catch the first one that comes. I'll catch the one after that. That way we'll arrive a few minutes apart."
"It wouldn't do to turn up together." She started to smile, but then remembered she was still wearing yesterday’s clothes. Her smile faded.
"I'm just wondering if it's obvious that I'm wearing the same clothes as yesterday."
"I hadn't thought of that." He touched her hand. "Don’t worry. I doubt anyone will notice. "

Did you see what Jane had on this morning? Was that the same top she was wearing yesterday?
