Sweet Celebrity Secret Identity Rom-com

When my twin sister died, she asked me to finish her bucket list before our 30th birthday. I’ve managed to fulfill every item on the list in her memory except for one: sing a public duet with Dylan Colt. My birthday is one week away. I have sponsors. I have fans.

Everyone is rooting for me to reach my goal except Dylan, the jerk who said no…and is now standing in front of me in his kitchen, wearing nothing but a towel. (What kind of celebrity greets his personal chef in a towel, anyway?)

Clearly I’ve been given another chance to convince him to help me, but he’ll fire me if I tell him who I am. A teeny little white lie about my identity might buy me some time to fulfill my sister’s dying wish. In the meantime, I refuse to think about how he looked standing there with wet hair, because…wow. It isn’t only his voice he’s famous for. Ahem.

Romantic Comedy

A dating dare? It could turn out to be the perfect match or it could be worse than a slap on a sunburn.

Me, little ol’ Paisley Jones, envisioned glitz and glamour with my movie star fiancé until a humiliating, public scandal explodes in my life like damp confetti. I escape to the family cottage with an ocean view and am not looking for love until a dare and a crazy seagull send me next door.

Griffin Sanders was a late-blooming goofball, but now, as a competitive surfer and business owner, not much stops him. However, when an injury keeps him out of the water, he’s stuck on dry land. Turns out his teen crush is hiding out in the neighboring cottage.

That would be yours truly, but I don’t recognize him at first. Big waves. Big surprise.

Sweet Fake Royal RomCom

My perfect date is my family’s archenemy.

King Winters, my dad, wants me to find a suitable date for my brother’s wedding. Except…

The royal dating options are both snobbish and obnoxious.

Call it destiny. I met Christopher on the beach, and we immediately connected.

He was charming, generous, and drop-dead gorgeous, making him the perfect date. Or so I thought.

Turns out, he is the mischievous son of our family’s archenemy.

His father is hell-bent on destroying our kingdom with his business ambitions.

I’d happily bid him good riddance if he were anything like his repugnant dad. No, my heart flutters just thinking of him, checking all the boxes.

Sweet Small Town Romantic Comedy

Could walking down the aisle turn the best man into the man of my life?

My best friend is marrying the man of her dreams (not jealous at all, really), and yours truly is the maid of honor. Note the ‘maid’ part. Best man Joey – hunky, funny, suave Joseph Buckley – is just a friend. I repeat it to myself over and over. Just a friend. Doesn’t matter that he flirts with me like the armageddon is coming, all he ever calls me is “buddy”.

In my day job, I’m the cool, collected one responsible for settling the puppies down. But Joey has turned me into a giggling, googly-eyed mess.

Then, during the rehearsal things, get a little too close between us. Did that just happen? Did he…? Did I…?

If I don’t tell him how I really feel before our friends’ wedding, I just might lose the best chance I’ve got for forever love.
