Coming Soon! New Contemporary Romance Book With A Touch of Holiday Spirit!
Even the most perfectly laid holiday plans sometimes go
Interracial entertainment industry it couple Sasha Williams
and Drake Lancaster are still going strong. Her impeccable publicist skills
have kept him on the A-list, helping Drake land the lead role in a major
Valentine’s Day movie. The minute filming wraps, the couple plan on taking a
much-needed getaway to Cabo San Lucas, inviting both of their families to join
them and meet for the very first time.
But plans go astray when Drake begins shooting and reverts
back to his bad boy ways. He gets into a huge altercation with the director and
ends up being booted from the movie. Drake tries to smooth talk his way back
in, to no avail. He’s quickly replaced by Mitch Morrison, a hot young African-American
actor who’s recently taken Hollywood by storm.
News of Drake’s firing is all over the media, with everyone
declaring he’s killed his career. Meanwhile, Mitch is being touted as the
film’s great savior, and the positive press lands him on the doorstep of
Sasha’s PR firm. She jumps at the chance to represent him, which infuriates
Drake, who’s certain Mitch will demand all of her attention and land roles that
rightfully belong to him. But Sasha, who’s disappointed in Drake’s on-set
behavior and exhausted from the immense amount of damage control it caused,
insists that he’s wrong and says this is a good business opportunity for her.
What Sasha doesn’t realize is that Drake feels threatened by
Mitch’s good looks and charismatic personality. He’s also worried the pair will
bond over the fact that they’re both African-American, working together in a
tough business that can be quite discriminatory. It doesn’t help matters when
Drake’s career stalls and he can’t even get an audition, while Sasha and Mitch continue
to thrive professionally.
The stress of it all puts a strain on the couple’s
relationship. To further complicate matters, Mitch admits to Sasha that he’s
developed feelings for her. She’s shocked and confused after realizing she just
may have feelings for him, too.
With the pressures of Sasha and Drake’s rocky union
continuing to mount, along with the anticipation of their polar-opposite
families meeting and Sasha’s elusive affections towards Mitch, the couple can’t
help but wonder whether everything they’ve worked so hard to build is about to
come crashing down. In the end, they must figure out whether their love for one
another is strong enough to withstand these newfound challenges and carry them
through this Valentine’s Day.
