    BBW The Great British Baking Contest (~BBW, Romance, ~~WG)

    (continued from post 11) She had already renewed her love affair with cheese that week, and on Thursday she threw herself into it with new dedication. Cheese straws, cheeseburgers, five-cheese pizza, a paper bag of cannoli from the little overpriced stall in the market square. She stashed a...

    BBW The Great British Baking Contest (~BBW, Romance, ~~WG)

    Week Four - Cheese Week Rebecca had always loved cheese. Cross her heart, hoped to die...preferably face-down in the remains of an entire wheel of brie. Gouda, paneer, halloumi? Brilliant. Red Leicester, smoked cheddar, Blue Stilton, Cornish Yarg? Divine. She campaigned against Brexit with...

    BBW The Great British Baking Contest (~BBW, Romance, ~~WG)

    Week 4 - Choux Week Robert had a blog. It was frustratingly sparse on personal details but full of recipes and a few photos of his life in beautifully remote central Scotland. His last post had been from three months ago. She was disappointed (and perhaps hoping she'd see some hint of something...

    BBW The Great British Baking Contest (~BBW, Romance, ~~WG)

    (continued from post 8) As it turned out, 'everything' wasn't an order the restaurant could fulfil, so Rebecca settled on a lamb rogan josh, a saag gobi, and a naan - no, two naans, because she couldn't choose between the garlic and the peshwari. Oh, and a mushroom rice. And a lahsi. Just to...

    BBW The Great British Baking Contest (~BBW, Romance, ~~WG)

    Chapter Three - Biscuit Week, Part 2 Shana had texted her the address of the curry house, a small place set amongst a labyrinthine jumble of buildings in Flidditch, a market town a half hour from filming and a five minute walk from the contestants' hotel. She hadn't told any of the crew she'd...

    BBW The Great British Baking Contest (~BBW, Romance, ~~WG)

    Post no 1 edit: 'last week's pie week' should obviously be year's. Mods, anyway we can retain the ability to edit old posts in the story forum?

    BBW The Great British Baking Contest (~BBW, Romance, ~~WG)

    (continued from post 3) * It was raining. The brandy snap variety challenge had contestants in tears. George's had melted off the sheet in the oven. Everyone's moods were darkening as quickly as the sky. 'Shit,' Rebecca snapped at her mobile. Her sister was ringing. She knew she wasn't...

    BBW The Great British Baking Contest (~BBW, Romance, ~~WG)

    Chapter Two - Biscuit Week, Part 1 When Rebecca returned to the tent the following weekend, she was proud of herself. She had been a good girl. She was strong and strong-willed and completely under her own control. She hadn't fallen into the temptation of Key Lime nor handsome men. She had...

    BBW The Great British Baking Contest (~BBW, Romance, ~~WG)

    (Chapter 1, continued) 'Christ, ten stone. What was he, an accountant?' She pressed her lips together. Robert laughed. It was lovely, like they were sharing a joke, and not at all cruel. 'You're very well shot of him, then. Three stone?' Unlike all others who she'd shared her weight loss with...

    BBW The Great British Baking Contest (~BBW, Romance, ~~WG)

    A dieting makeup artist regrets her decision to work for the Great British Baking Contest…until she meets one of the contestants. [Note: Yeah, I don't know anything about TV production or makeup. Based on a very popular show in the UK but not related, etc. etc.] The Great British Baking...

    BBW A Small Technicality (BBW, WG, Romance)

    Sorry for the massive wait. I thought the last chapter made for a nice ending, but we could so with a little more. Hope you enjoy it. Mini glossary for the non-Brits: CPS=Crown Prosecution Service, Cheryl Cole: Near incomprehensible singer from girl band Girl's Aloud, now a tabloid darling...

    BBW A Small Technicality (BBW, WG, Romance)

    High praise indeed. Thanks very much. There will be an epilogue... Just need to write it. Might be a few weeks, but hopefully sooner.

    BBW A Small Technicality (BBW, WG, Romance)

    One more chapter after this. Hang in there. Ben gaped at her for a full ten seconds before wordlessly standing back from the door and gesturing inside. He still didn't say anything as she dropped her carrier bags, shucked off her coat and sat on his sofa, her hands folded in her lap. Still...

    Thanks, Tad. Glad someone's still reading!

    BBW A Small Technicality (BBW, WG, Romance)

    Even the adverts were taking the piss. 'The colour for the season? It's grey,' the women on the television said as Ben flipped between channels. Adverts for carpets and blinds in cool dove tones flooded muted window displays, and the wall at the Underground station was scrubbed and painted over...

    BBW A Small Technicality (BBW, WG, Romance)

    Hey, sorry for the delay. Been writing but haven't had the chance to post. Few chapters coming up (not really the most cheerful stuff, but hang in there): 19 Ben spent the weekend in a haze of confusion and indecision, alternately picking up and putting down his mobile, picking up and...

    BBW A Small Technicality (BBW, WG, Romance)

    He wasn't sure what had done it - the words he said, that boiled sweet, or just something invisible in Tessa's own mind - but something had changed in those brief moments that Friday morning. He found Tessa smiling at him as he cruised into work, whistling. More cases appeared on his desk, and...

    BBW A Small Technicality (BBW, WG, Romance)

    Everyday, Ben went to work, slipping through crowds like he was someone else, not really feeling, not really caring, just as distant from himself as he was from every other person in a city of millions. Everyday, Ben lunch in his office by himself, picking at dry sandwiches that Maria kept...

    BBW A Small Technicality (BBW, WG, Romance)

    When did food last taste of anything? Ben couldn't remember. He'd stopped eating lunch sometime after those donuts, and the contents of his mini-fridge ended up in the compost bin. 'I'm worried about you.' Maria bent over his desk, his face in her hands, fingers framing the plain of each cheek...
