Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 10, 2014


Children's librarian by day. Romance novelist by night.
British single father.
Someone else is writing this love story...

Blair Walton isn't your average curvaceous tattooed children's librarian. She's also one half of bestselling romance author, Scarlet Rose. Along with her BFF Raine, she spends her nights writing books so steamy, she's afraid they would shock her Southern conservative grandmother to death . . . if she knew about them. That's why she and Raine write in secret.

On deadline for their latest book and out of ideas, Raine suggests (demands) that Blair find a guy and "do some research". Declan Bennet has all the qualifications: He's British, looks fabulous in a suit, has glorious blue eyes and gets bonus points for being an amazing single dad to his adorable son, Drake. But what starts out as a research project quickly turns into something much more. And Blair's not the only one with secrets.

“You’re kidding,” Raine said that night as I gave a dramatic reenactment of meeting Drake’s father that afternoon.

“Would I make something like this up?” I said, realizing too late that yes, I definitely could.

“Dude, you’re a writer. I’m a writer. We make things up for a living.” She gestured to make her point. Raine always had to gesture when she was talking. Even when her hands were full. She had a tendency to spill whatever she was holding.

“Good point, but still. I am not making this up. He was completely real. And gorgeous, and that accent—” I had that tingle again just remembering.

“You’re talking about the dad, right?” It took me a second to realize what she said.

I smacked her on the arm. “Ew, pervert. Yes, the dad. I wish I could have gotten his name. If only the stupid nanny hadn’t filled out the form. Then he would have had to print his name and I would know what it is.”

“Well, another part of our job as writers is to know things. And if we don’t know them, how to find them.” She ran to her computer and started typing like a madwoman.

“No, Raine. No. We swore we would only use your powers in extreme emergencies.”

She didn’t look up at me.

“There’s a cute guy involved. That qualifies this as an emergency.” Her eyes scanned the screen and then she typed some more. I didn’t possess her magical computer searching prowess, but I knew how to Google.

“Raine, stop.”

“Hell. No.” She banged the keyboard twice and grinned at me, turning her laptop around. “Voila!” Somehow, she’d hacked into the library database, found the scanned form, put it through some fancy handwriting decoding software that she’d sworn was somehow a work expense and a name popped up.

“Declan. His name is Declan Bennet. Wow. That is a great name,” Raine said, sighing. “That’s a great name for a character. Can we steal it?”

“No, we can’t steal it. We can’t steal names from people we might actually see again, remember?”
