Can one woman change an age-old institution like publishing? Probably not, but Kate Mitchell sure wants to try. As a publicist with a large, respected New York publishing house, Kate finds herself at the mercy of a broken publishing system, books that don’t sell, and author egos that are often, well, as big as the island of Manhattan.
Enter the star editor, MacDermott Ellis: Tall, handsome, charismatic, married, and ready to save the day. Then there’s Allan Lavigne, once a revered author—now as forgotten as last year’s bestsellers and his nephew Nick: Tall, gorgeous, sweet, single, and ready to sweep Kate off her feet. Kate wants to do the right thing but her hormones seem to be driving her decisions.
As Kate tries to navigate the landmine of publicity, over-the-top author expectations, and the careful dance of “I’m sorry, your book isn’t on the bestseller list this week,” she also finds authors who are painfully overlooked by a publisher wanting more romance and sex, more celebrities, and more scandal.
Welcome to the world of publishing. The ego has landed.
This Much Is True
by Katherine Owen
Both on the verge of fame. A ballerina who lies. A baseball player who believes her. Well, the truth changes everything.
Tally Landon just wants to escape her tragic story if just for one night. She doesn’t count on meeting Stanford’s baseball wonder, but now she just plans to add Lincoln Presley to her long list of one-night stands. That’s the plan. Lying to the guy about her age and her name is just a part of her don’t-get-emotionally-attached way of coping. She doesn’t count on being found out, falling in love, or ever seeing him again. Ballet is her life; she plans on keeping it that way. But, can she?
Lincoln Presley’s life is all mapped out. There is only baseball. With the major leagues circling their favorite prospect with a lucrative offer, he cannot afford to mess up. And, he doesn’t; until he meets up with the girl he saved from the burning wreckage on the 101 on Valentine’s Day months before. By the time he learns her real name and of all the lies she’s told, he’s in far too deep to ever really let her go.
When fame and lies tear them apart, one truth remains. And fate? Fate most definitely, has a different set of plans. This much is true.
