A Written in the Stars novella
There are three constants in my life: my best friend Lindy, my rising career at Sterling & Masters Publishing, and my daily horosco Brynn Hartley
There are three constants in my life: my BFF Lindy, my rising career, and my daily horoscope.
So why couldn’t the stars have told me a little more directly that I wasn’t going to get the job I’d been chasing, that it was going to an outsider, and I’d wind up drowning my sorrows on my twenty-eighth birthday having a one-night stand with a devastatingly handsome stranger?
Things only get worse when I finally meet my new boss, who just so happens to be the man I let do unspeakable things to my body all weekend. Pierce Abrams makes it crystal clear that he’ll stop at nothing to have my body again—even as he thieves my dreams from under me.
My silver lining comes when my childhood best friend, Noah Chance, pops up out of the blue after nearly twenty years with a deal I can’t pass up—along with a second chance at love.
Somewhere—torn between the pages of a forbidden romance with my new boss and a chance at the kind of love fairy tales are made of—is my heart. Is my destiny written in the stars like my horoscope said? Or will I crash and burn, consumed by the very love I never knew I was looking for?
A Cocky Hero Club novel
CARTER WRIGHT WAS used to being anything but Mr. Right. He wouldn’t exactly call himself a street rat, but his life had somehow become a rags-to-almost-riches story—one he’d rather keep to himself. The best part about being a stand-in to some of the wealthiest a-holes in New York?
To anything, and anyone, he wanted.
And that certainly wasn’t Little Miss Moneybags, Presley Kincaid. No, he had his sights set on someone even hotter—her mother. But when Lauren asks him to stand in for her richer-than-sin fiancé at their rehearsal dinner, and then he’s later paired up with her spoiled daughter Presley at the wedding, Carter can do the only thing he’s truly good at: Shut up. Smile. Be charming.
Be the stand-in he was born to be.
But when Presley turns out to be more than she pretends—and a one-night stand gives her more access to his past than he intended—Carter’s simple, easy-going lifestyle starts to unravel, exposing the biggest lie of all. One so big, Carter never even saw it coming.
Will Presley accidentally expose The Stand-In for who he really is? Or will her discovery free Carter from the street hustle he’s perfected and finally help him claim a life, and love, that was always meant to be?
One woman. Three men.
Some things are best kept secret.
When Creslyn Knight auditions for the role of a life time, she never expects three things:
1.To know the casting director—intimately.
2.To be insanely attracted to the three stand-in actors at the audition.
3.That she’d soon be putting her morals to the test when her resolve weakens.
Acting is in Creslyn’s blood, and she’s focused her sights on one thing: landing the role of a lifetime. But she’s always been told that everything comes at a cost. The casting director names his when he tells her she must make him believe she can surrender to a harem of men, or he can’t justify giving her the lead role.
Determined to prove him wrong and show him she can tap into a passion that deep, Creslyn throws herself into rehearsals. But the fine line between script and reality soon starts to blur, leading her and three men into unchartered territory. The only problem? She has a jealous roommate, a disgruntled mother, and a string of paparazzi hot on her trail, making Creslyn question the cost of everything.
In a world where some things are best kept secret, is the price of fame too high when it comes to the heart?

But when the town’s sexy young surgeon goes and mucks things up by setting his sights on her, Rosalie’s heart is torn in ways she never expected.

He knew from the moment they met that she was the one, and he would stop at nothing to win her over.
