Spotlight on Love out today!


This is my first time writing for a Kindle World and it has been a whirlwind of excitement. When my friend, and New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster asked me to participate, I jumped at the chance. Then came the challenge – write a novella in a couple of weeks, make sure Melissa’s New York City world and characters – in my story, Siena Remington – make an appearance and then launch Spotlight on Love!

I love Olivia and Reed’s love at first sight story and I hope you will, too. Here’s the blurb:

Since childhood, Olivia Larson has dreamed of becoming a top fashion model. Recruited by an elite New York agency, she’s about to board a private plane to fly to the Big Apple. As a promise to her dedicated mom, she’s focused on her career, and nothing else, but that determination is challenged when a sexy and secretive celebrity arrives for the same flight.

Bad boy pop star Reed Ralston has been famous since he was a tween, pushed into the spotlight by an overbearing stage mom and appearing on a popular kids’ TV show as a singer/songwriter. Against the odds, and with dark secrets from a troubled childhood hidden from the press, Reed has transitioned into a successful adult star with a carefully manufactured image designed to keep him on top of the charts and in the pop-culture media.

Sometimes opposites attract immediately, as Reed and Olivia discover during their spark-filled, hour-long flight to New York. But what happens when their attraction is exposed to the harsh spotlight of fame will make all the difference.
