Born in Jackson, Michigan, my mother taught me to read when I was four. I remember reading to my kindergarten class and living at the library, hence my love of books began. Then when I was thirteen I discovered romance novels (I know, too young to be reading Johanna Lindsey!). But I did, and I’ve been in love ever since.
About sixteen, I was so in awe of romance authors that I dreamed of giving another person the same wonder and happiness that reading gave me. So I started writing and continued reading, falling in love with Susan Elizabeth Philips, Toni Morrison, and Diana Gabaldon. I finished college getting a degree in Accounting. Then, at twenty-five, a story I was dreaming about stuck in my head and wouldn’t let go.
After several box-office flops, movie star Randall Rowe returns to his small hometown to rebuild his relationship with his family and asks Kayla Denton, the runaway he’d once helped, to decorate his new home. But she refuses, unwilling to work with the handsome charmer due to a lingering crush–and hurt feelings. That is, until financial circumstances soon force her to strike a deal.
With their close proximity, Randall starts seeing Kayla is an alluring woman who he can be himself with, and his attraction soon overpowers all reason. Kayla struggles to keep her guard up, until she realizes underneath Randall’s bad reputation lies more than she could’ve imagined. Yet when Hollywood comes calling for Randall, will their budding relationship possibly survive?
