The Movie Stars in Maryland Duet
BOOK 1 - HAPPILY EVER HIS
"The totally normal sister of a Hollywood starlet gets a shot at the hunk? Oh, and Grandma is a hard-core gamer with no filter? Did I mention the house chicken who develops a serious crush on a bodyguard? Sign. Me. Up. It's a fast read from author Delancey Stewart that delivers the steam, laughs, and feels!" -- Wall Street Journal and #1 Amazon Bestselling Author, Lucy Score
Tess was used to being in the shadows. But when movie star Ryan McDonnell pulls her into the spotlight, her whole world is threatened. Can a relationship that starts as a secret fantasy ever survive in the real world?
My sister Juliet has always gotten everything she wants. It’s fine though. I never wanted the spotlight. That was my sister’s domain. And now that she’s America’s most popular starlet? She can have it.
But when Gran—the feisty woman who raised us, and who I cannot seem to wean off video games, an afternoon doobie, or her daily Manhattan—has a huge party to celebrate her 90th birthday, Juliet brings the Hollywood madness straight to Maryland.
In the form of my ultimate movie-star crush, Ryan McDonnell. I can barely form a sentence around the guy (at least I don’t still have a poster of him on my wall). And I definitely can’t get over the fact that he’s Juliet’s new boyfriend.
I just need to get through the weekend with them—and with the magazine people who are covering them and the party for a feature. I just need to stay away from Ryan and his warm curious eyes, his perfectly chiseled arms, and the impossibly sexy things that come out of his mouth when we’re alone together.
It’s only one weekend, and I just need to remember that Ryan is an actor. A good one. Because I almost believe him when he tells me we have a chance together.
Book 2 - Happily Ever Hers
Juliet Manchester is America’s best-loved movie starlet. But when a nasty divorce and a sex-tape scandal threaten to tarnish her spotless good-girl reputation, she turns to co-star Ryan McDonnell to help distract the media with a passionate (and completely fake) new romance. The only problem? They’re both in love with other people.
Going home for Gran’s 90th in Maryland was something I normally would’ve been looking forward to. But the timing is terrible. My ex is dragging me through a media scandal (even though he’s the one who cheated. Spectacularly. On the kitchen island. With my personal chef), and if I had my way, I’d stay out of the spotlight entirely.
But America’s Sweetheart has to be okay, and my agent is positive the best way to convince America that I’m not in the midst of a breakdown is to date my latest co-star.
He’s hot. He’s sweet. And he’s willing.
But he’s not the man I’m in love with.
The former Marine bodyguard who’s been stationed inside my house by the private security firm I employ is nothing like a movie star. He’s rough around the edges, from the wrong side of the tracks… and one-hundred percent exactly my type.
But the two of us together? Could cost us both our jobs.
I just need to remember that Jace Morgan is here to protect me. Not to love me.
But when he comes along to Maryland? Lines get crossed, and I’m not talking about the Mason-Dixon, y’all.
