Licence to Dream: What Would You Do If You Won the Lottery?
Growing up in England, Meriel discovers she has a talent for art and wants to earn her living as an artist, but her mother forces her to become an accountant. She’s good at that, too, but her heart isn’t in it. When she wins some money, her lifelong dream suddenly becomes possible, and she quits her job to buy a house in country Australia where she can combine her love of the outdoors with her work as a commercial artist.
In Australia, Ben has dreams, too, but they’ve been on hold in the years since his wife’s death. When he inherits some land he finds hope again, but newly-arrived Meriel buys the piece of land next to his, and it’s crucial to his plans.
When they meet, sparks fly between them, but the trouble is, he enjoys his encounters with her. And she’s not indifferent to him. After she saves his life, the barriers between them start to fall, one by one. But Ben’s business partner has been cooking the books and leaving Ben in serious financial trouble.
Can he find a way out of this mess or will he be dragged into bankruptcy through no fault of his own? Together, Ben and Meriel have a chance to make their dreams come true. But will one ruthless man ruin everything they’ve worked for?
