Keith Webb froze in astonishment as management consultant Charlotte Smith introduced herself. It was impossible that a figment of his imagination - a woman he'd invented to discourage a young girl's crush on him - could be so delectably alive, so beguilingly real!

It was only supposed to be a pretend kind of love, but oh, the tangled web they wove.
