New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak weaves the tale of a Hollywood bad boy and a no-nonsense publicist in "When Lightning Strikes."
Gail DeMarco has had enough of Simon O'Neal's wild ways and cleaning up his messes. When she makes an offhand comment to the press, she suddenly finds herself minus Simon as a client, no big deal, but he also takes all of her other clients with her! Now Gail's in the uncomfortable position of having to apologize if she wants to save her business.
Simon's going through a nasty custody battle with an ex and when a member of Gail's firm leaks a negative story in retaliation, is suddenly in an even worse position in the public eye. He needs to prove to the custody judges - and the world - that he's giving up his partying lifestyle and bad boy ways and is going to settle down. His manager and Gail come up with a very bizarre plan - to enter into a "business" marriage with Gail and head off to her small town life in Whiskey Creek to stay out of the public eye, and then to quietly divorce a year or so later. It's so crazy it just might work, except there's one problem - neither Gail nor Simon expected to start to have feelings for each other. Will their in-name marriage prove to be anything but?
I love "marriage of convience" stories and the glittery backdrop of Hollywood and celebrities was just icing on the cake. This was a highly entertaining romance that I stayed up all night reading.
