Overview

What if your fiancé turns out to be a werewolf, and worse, his creature-of-the-night girlfriend is trying to kill you?

Lucy Hart, eighteen-year-old queen bee and captain of the cheer squad, faces just that. She loses everything—money, social status, and even her home—when her father is arrested for tax evasion and immigrant slave trafficking. Reduced to flipping burgers, she plots to get her old life back by blackmailing her father’s slimeball lawyer and scheming her way into a gig pretending to be a rich young man’s “fiancée.”

The pay: enough money to let her write her own future. The bad news: the guy is a condescending pain in the butt.

In no time at all Lucy finds herself fighting for her life as her faux fiancé’s vampire girlfriend tries to slaughter her, and on top of that, getting royally grossed out by her own spanking new paranormal ability: necromancy. Yet somehow, while she gets back her life and kicks vampire butt, she also manages to fall in love/lust with her fake fiancé.

Newly edited.

Meet the Author

Let me introduce myself. I'm forty—which isn't as bad as I thought it would be. I live to read and love to write. I love romance, comedy, brooding and sparkly vampires, and I love pizza. I have a dog named Jack, and I work somewhere I have to wear a blue top and brown pants (you can probably guess).

I've just written my first romance. Erotic, funny, about 35,000 words, so it's a novella, and hopefully a good one. I'm working to get it reviewed while I write the second part. I'm planning on having three 30,000 words novellas in the series.

Hope Breaks

Hope Entangles

Hope Rises

Wish me luck.

    Great book with a twist

    Some books are so cookie cutter it gets predictable but not this one. I love that Lucy is a strong capable woman who takes care of herself. The love story in this book isnt your normal one and that intrigued me. Im buying part two now. Cant wait to see where this goes.

    Good read

    This is my first review. I like paranormal books that have an interesting storyline and this book delivered. I didn't put it down until I wasdone. I wasn't sure if i was going to like it because Lucy is young in age but she isn't in how she approaches her problems. I likehow she is honest with herself n direct with others. While I understand the plot line Gabriel needs to man up n approach his issueslike Lucydoes. The grandma is another of my favorite characters because she has a soft side n hard side especially when it comes to helping her grandaughter. Totally recommend. Haven't startednext book yet but can't wait to see what happens.
