GENRE: Contemporary Romance
Bethany Waterbury left Hollywood and the shadow of her mother’s death to give herself a fresh start. Her main intention—to connect with the family she’d never really had the chance to know.
Author Kent Black is enjoying his chart topping success and living freely wherever his travels take him. But when he meets the illustrious Bethany Waterbury his wanderlust subsides and the thought of a steady future begins to take over.
Kent believes in happily ever after, but the burden of Bethany’s past might be too much for him to embrace —unless true love is more powerful than a Hollywood tragedy.
“Bethany?” he called as if they were old friends.
She felt the blood drain from her head. She didn’t know him did she?
He moved quickly around Mrs. Talbot and straight to her. “Hi, sorry, had to get away from her. I’m Kent. I know you’re Bethany. I’m a big fan. Not a stalker kind of person at all, just a big fan. I’m thankful for the water. That is for me right?” She nodded and handed him the glass. “Thanks,” he said as he took the glass and began drinking. “She’s weird, that woman,” he whispered. “Thanks for saving me.”
“Do I know you?” she asked softly.
Kent took her arm and led her to the table at the front of the room. It was obviously a tactic to keep people from coming up to him, by keeping her close.
“No. Sorry.” He set his water on the table and held his hand out to shake hers. “Formal intro now. Kent Black.”
“I really like your work. I saw you the other day. I didn’t know it was you, but I saw you.”
She narrowed her eyes on him. “You saw me?”
“You were having coffee with some man. I think he was your brother.”
“How do you know that?”
His cheeks flushed and he wiped his hand over his forehead. “Oh, well, the coffee shop was full. I saw you looking for a table. I was going to invite you to sit with me. You sat with some man and then when you left, you smiled at me, and then said something to him about having lunch with Dad.”
God, he was a crazy mess too, this man who kept her up all night.
