When your fictional hero comes to life on the big screen, it’s easy to get starstruck … Unless the leading man happens to be your ex.
Dropping November 1! Sounds like a fun story coming our way. I will probably wish it were a full-length novel instead of a novella, but Laureano knows how to pull readers into her stories immediately. Also, I see Big Ben and Parliament in the background, so bonus for a British setting! Take a look at the back cover description:
Novelist Christine Lind has achieved her lifelong dream—a string of best-selling books and a cable-TV adaptation about to go into production. But on her way to London FanFest for the cast reveal, disaster strikes: their leading man is injured in a motorcycle accident … and his replacement is the one person she hoped she’d never seen again.
Nick Cleary has clawed his way to recognition as a Hollywood actor, but it’s long past time he gets the chance to show he’s more than a pretty face and a chiseled set of abs. His big break comes in the form of a juicy lead role in a new steampunk fantasy series. There’s just one catch—casting has to be approved by the author … a woman he once devastated through his own youthful stupidity.
Christine is the last person to be starstruck by the handsome heartthrob, but as the clock ticks down to the cast announcement and Nick races to show that he’s really changed, she begins to wonder if there’s more to her ex than his Hollywood persona. Except now the consequences of being wrong no longer apply only to her career… but also to her carefully guarded heart.
