Shawn Richards (aka S.K. Richardson) is a romance author who’s done with love. She’s had her heart broken badly again and just can’t take it anymore. Ditching San Francisco, she moves back home to Southwest Florida to get her feet back under her and finish her latest novel.

Carrie Alexander is a huge S.K. Richardson fan, but has no idea what she looks like. She does, however, like the looks of the new neighbor down the street, Shawn Richards.

Drawn to each other at first as friends, Shawn still tries to keep some distance in spite of what she’s beginning to feel for Carrie. Carrie isn’t the kind of woman you just have a fun night with and then move on. Carrie’s the kind you fall in love with and make love to, and live happily ever after with—but she just can’t let herself trust her heart yet. After all, the last time she fell for one of her fans, it ended very badly.

Carrie is looking for her own ‘happy ever after’ just like in all those romance novels she reads.  Shawn could be the one, or maybe Carrie’s fooling herself and there’s really no such thing as all that romantic stuff in Shawn’s books.

Shawn's afraid she can’t deliver on that ‘happy ever after’ she knows Carrie wants—and she wants, too, truth be told. Destiny might have given them a push when Carrie tripped at the local grocery store and literally fell into Shawn’s arms.  But fear could cost Shawn the woman of her dreams.
