June 1st - Book Anniversary Giveaway

A month ago, I wrote about the 45th anniversary of the publication of my first book (yes, I really am getting old now!).
Between 1968 and 1978 I had four books published - all of them in hardback. One of them was also bought for serialisation in a UK women's magazine, three were bought by Harlequin for publication as paperbacks in the USA and Canada, and one of them was even published in Italian!
Jump forward 30 years, and I started writing romance novels again. My confidence had deserted me, until 'His Leading Lady' was accepted and published at the beginning of June 2011.
Since then I've had another four novels published.
So, to celebrate my return to writing contemporary romance, I'm offering five (yes, FIVE!) e-copies (PDF format) of 'His Leading Lady' to 5 lucky commenters who answer the following question:
What is your favourite musical show - and why?

His Leading Lady

Jess Harper’s predictable life is turned upside down when she discovers that Lora, her twin sister, has disappeared.  It’s just a week before rehearsals are due to start for a new West End musical in which Lora has the lead role.  Jess decides to pose as her sister in order to save Lora's career.  This brings her into close contact with arrogant theatre director Kyle Drummond.  Attraction sparks between them but there’s also evidence he had been dating Lora.  So is Jess simply a substitute – in real life as well as in the show?  And what will happen when Lora eventually returns? 

12 Five Star reviews and 2 Four Star:
"His Leading Lady has a gripping cast of characters taking you on an emotional journey of sisterly love, betrayal and desire."

"Paula has brilliantly written a page turner that dives the reader head first into romance, intrigue and mystery, set in London's Theatrical West End."

"It has everything that a romance novel should have: sexy male and female characters, humor, mystery, chemistry, antagonists, misunderstandings, pride, forgiveness, pain, joy, and reconciliations."
