What Would You Do for Love?

by Arabella Andrews
from the Sweet Nothings Lingerie Series by Meg London

Out Now!

Hello y’all.  It’s Arabella Andrews here.  I run the Sweet Nothings Lingerie Shop in Paris, Tennessee.  My niece Emma Taylor left her job in New York City to come back to Paris and help me with the shop. She did a splendid job renovating the space—ripping out the pea green shag I put down in the 70s, painting the walls a pretty pale pink and adding black and white toile accents.

We have a large collection of vintage lingerie that I’ve acquired at various estate sales.  Emma is in charge of ordering the new stock.  Thanks to her contacts in New York, we have some beautiful things to offer our clients.

Sometimes I worry though. Is this any sort of life for a 28 year old girl—helping her old aunt run a shop in a small town?  It worries me that I’m being selfish by keeping her here. 

Of course there is Brian O’Connell.  He’s the brother of Emma’s best friend, and the friendship has blossomed into a serious relationship.  Perhaps that’s enough to keep her here in Paris.

What do you think? What would you do for love?

Catch up with me on my web site or on Facebook!


  1. I think Emma is quite happy to be there with you. And I believe it's her love for you, not Brian that keeps her there. Don't worry yourself about it. And, "if" for any reason Emma so need a change, I'll be very happy to take her place at Sweet Nothings with you! Just keep the sweet tea coming!

  2. I think Emma is enjoying being there with you and getting to know you better and feeling your love.

  3. Elaine and Lisa, I think you're right! I'd love to have an aunt like Arabella. Of course now I'm nearly old enough to *be* Arabella!

  4. Thanks for your great information, the contents are quiet interesting.I will be waiting for your next post.

  5. Hi Arabelle, don't worry about Emma. She sounds happy doing things she likes and is good at. And if love is meant to be, it will find her, where ever she is.

  6. What I would do for love is to keep on trying to get it right. I guess in my real life I have as my husband and I will be married 50 years as of November. It means working at your marriage or your relationship and not allowing it to get stale or take one another for granted.
