Never Be Her Hero
LENGTH: 36,900 words, 170 pages
Della needs a hero. Anybody got a cape Elliston can borrow?
How can a 31-year-old guy in his prime have a dating emergency? Elliston stupidly told his best client that he would bring a date to his weekend function, but then he got too busy with work to actually get off his butt and find one.
Hey, don’t judge. Finding a girlfriend wasn’t on his agenda.
So what did he do? He called his favorite dating service. The owner of The Perfect Date, Dr. Mariah Bates, offered the perfect deal—one that just might save his ego and his man card. He gets a fake girlfriend for his business trip and all he has to do in exchange is take his fake girlfriend to her sister’s wedding.
Enter Dr. Della Livingston. Mariah’s career-minded assistant with surprisingly great legs has Elliston soon thinking he’s hit the fake girlfriend jackpot.
Maybe he’s nuts from months of working too hard, but he’s beginning to wish this whole fake date thing wasn’t so fake. Now he wants to jump off the love cliff and save the girl, except he needs to figure out how to fly first.
Anybody got a Superman cape he can borrow?
About THE PERFECT DATE Series
The essence of all romantic comedy is that falling in love and navigating an unexpected romance is never easy or simple. Instead, it’s messy and emotional, and if you’re lucky, it’s also sexy and fun.
Some relationship professionals, like my character of Dr. Mariah Bates in this series, sincerely want to help people find their perfect love match. For the various heroines I’ve created, many of whom are older, Mariah’s going to need all the help she can get. Or maybe she just needs to step out of the way. You can be the judge.
NOTE ABOUT THE HEAT LEVEL: Not being a fan of the word “clean” when applied to romance, I will instead say the heat level in this new series is in the 1-2 range, rather than 3-4 like some of my others. The focus is on sensuality and I’ve packed a lot into these stories.
