Auditioning You

An Escape to You Novella

The role of a lifetime…

Costume assistant, Beth Perkins, is in for the worst Christmas ever. Her actor boyfriend landed his dream job, only to end their relationship and have her banned from the set of her costuming gig. Within twenty-four hours, Beth finds herself homeless, boyfriend-less, jobless, and too ashamed to go home to Summerville, Georgia for the holiday. Thank goodness for her scholarship to Cupid Island. Beth is determined to make the most of her week in paradise, but she’s not interested in romance, especially if it comes calling in the form of Hollywood’s Sexiest Man Alive. She’s done with actors, once and for all.

Superstar Tanner Bryson is sick of the Hollywood machine. He longs for a more authentic life, and a connection with someone who loves him for who he really is. The second he pulls Beth Perkins from the sea—rescuing her from death by giant fish—Tanner feels the same connection he felt when she took his measurements weeks before. Tanner convinces Beth to give him a chance at her heart, but when Tanner’s Hollywood life intrudes, will Tanner and Beth’s newfound island love have what it takes to last in the real world?

Daring You

An Escape to You Novella

All’s fair in love and war…

Star Cavanaugh has never been able to resist a dare, especially from her best friend and co-worker, gorgeous bad boy billionaire, Damon Shine. But when a few too many drinks at a Las Vegas realtor’s conference ends with Star joining Damon on an all-expenses paid “love scholarship” to Cupid Island, she knows she’s made a serious mistake. Dare or no dare, Star’s not up for more than friendship. Every risk she has ever taken has been in the name of securing her financial future after her father abandoned her family. She takes risks in the name of safety, not adventure or romance, and is afraid even one step down the path to temptation will set her carefully ordered world to crumbling.

Bad boy Damon Shine is in love with his best friend, and determined to show Star that there’s room in her life for love and passion, as well as safety and security. But when Star discovers their love scholarship includes a wedding ceremony at the end of the week, Damon has to employ all his considerable charm to keep Star from jumping on the next ferry back to the mainland. The chemistry between them is as electric as Damon knew it would be, but will chemistry be enough to keep Star by his side? Or will Damon’s own demons be the thing that keeps best friends from finding happily ever after?

Fans of Bella Andre, Kristan Higgins, and Susan Mallery will love the Escape to You romance series, stories featuring best friends and coworkers who find love in paradise.
