Twenty-three-year-old rising theater star Jill McCormick has built a life out of pretending. Pretending she's happy, pretending her long-distance crushes add up to something real, pretending she's not haunted by the dark secret that shattered her world six years ago. Cast in her first Broadway show, she desperately needs to keep her façade intact, but that's before she comes face to face with her devastating new boss... Hotshot director Davis Milo knows the first rule of directing: never fall for your leading lady. Captivated by Jill's raw talent, he fights his feelings, but watching Jill on-stage with another man is more than his jealous streak can take. Keeping things professional isn't an option. He wants all of her. Soon the ingenue and her director are staying late in the empty theatre, their private rehearsals spiraling into new, forbidden territory. Caught up between fiction and reality, Jill struggles to find the truth in all their staged kisses. But how can she be sure that what she feels is real, and not a part of the play? And when two people spend their lives pretending, what happens after the final curtain falls?

***Includes the bonus short story, Temporary Arrangement, the prequel to The Renaldi Series***
Look, but don't touch...The Renaldis.
Alone and broke, Paige Stewart can't believe her good luck. Who hires a virtual stranger out of a New York City coffee shop to care for their adorable grandson? Apparently Claudia Renaldi does.
Widower Matteo Renaldi isn't pleased that his mother found a replacement nanny so soon after he fired the last one. Yet little Matty takes to Paige like no other nanny before. And Matteo can't deny he's quite taken with her as well. She's beautiful. Sweet. And far, far too young for him.
There's something about the gorgeously sexy Matteo that fills Paige with longing to break through his wall of formality and touch his softer side. But no one knows better than she that crushing on her boss is one thing. Acting on those feelings is forbidden. Foolish. Inevitable...
Warning: Sexy, grumpy Italian hero who is determined to keep his walls up. No matter how much his son's sweetly beautiful nanny drives him to distraction.

Tempted by Her Boss: The Renaldis, Book 1
Business? Meet pleasure... The Renaldis, Book 1 Paige Stewart has committed the ultimate nanny sin-she's fallen in love with her boss. She adores Matteo Renaldi's sweet, precocious son. Who wouldn't? But it's torture going about her day-to-day tasks, catching fleeting glimpses of the boy's enigmatic father. Chastising herself for fantasizing she's in the Renaldi master bed... It's ridiculous, pointless. After all, soon little Matty won't need her anymore and she'll move on. Matteo has no interest in dating. He's consumed by work, his son...and his son's nanny. She's everything he's not: young, carefree, trusting, maybe a little naïve. She deserves better than an embittered widower. Yet when she accidentally falls into his arms, he can't resist drawing her in for a kiss that quickly spirals out of control. As they travel to his family's home in Italy and slowly fall in love, the whispers start. And when one particularly ugly story blows up in their faces, their reputations might escape unscathed, but their hearts may not...
Warning: The sexy, grumpy Italian hero is finally won over by his son's sweetly beautiful nanny-though it was quite the challenge for her to catch him. Watch for lots of high drama, passionate love and malicious rumors before these two can find their HEA.
Sarah has always been torn between two worlds. The carefree, easy-going world of her hippie mom, where life is all about helping others and building good karma, and the real world, with real responsibilities, like paying bills, and getting to work on time ... values obviously gleaned from dad's side of the family. She has nothing but fond memories of her father. He was always there for her, and clearly loved her mother more than she even thought possible, despite mom's overtly eccentric behavior. Losing dad was tough, but now she's been reduced to being the girl with the crazy mom. A reputation that's not likely to increase her chances of landing her dream promotion at the resort across the bay where she works. Especially with the new competition. Ben is an attractive, sophisticated, and savvy businessman, clearly there to destroy her chances of getting the job. Her luck couldn't be worse. With an obvious attraction and closeness forming between the two, Sarah discovers that Ben's motives may not be as clear as she first thought. What's he really doing there? Is she being played? Benjamin Rothschild has come to the popular upscale resort strictly for business. Under the assumption he's there to evaluate Sarah for a new position, he can't help being drawn in by her sensual charm and free-spirited nature. But, for some reason this passionate beauty has it out for him. What has he ever done to her? With so much confusion and something obviously lost in the translation, he'll have to do everything in his power to convince her that his intentions for her are true.

Get ready for your next favorite romantic comedy audiobook from Lauren Blakely, THE REAL DEAL!

April Hamilton wants you to know she hasn’t been on Craigslist since that time she sold her futon after college. She doesn’t even spend that much time online. And even if she did, she would not be looking up personal ads. But going home alone for her family's summer reunion is an invitation for every single relative to butt into her personal life. She simply can’t handle another blind date with the butcher, the baker or the candlestick maker from her hometown. So when she finds the Craigslist ad for a boyfriend-for-hire, she’s ready to pay to play.

Heading Home and Need a Buffer? I’m the REAL DEAL.

Theo Banks has been running from the past for years. He’s this close to finally settling all his debts, and one more job as a boyfriend-for-hire will do the trick. He’s no gigolo. Please. He’s something of an actor, and he knows how to slip into any role, including pretending to be April’s new beau -- the bad boy with the heart of gold.

Even if it means sleeping in close quarters in that tiny little bed in her parents’ inn. Even if it means spinning tales of a romance that starts to feel all too true. What neither one of them counts on is that amid the egg toss, the arm wrestling, and a fierce game of Lawn Twister that has them tangled up together, they might be feeling the real deal.

She only wanted to show her family once and for all that she had no need to settle down.

He didn’t expect to have the time of his life at her parent’s home.

They didn’t plan on loving every single second of the game.

But can a masterful game of pretend result in true love?

Praise for The Real Deal:

"I loved everything about these characters, from their sparkling banter to their electric attraction. Witty, clever, and swoony." -Amy E. Reichert, New York Times bestselling author of The Coincidence of Coconut Cake

"A hilarious, hot slow burn. The Real Deal is full of witty banter and characters you'll fall head over heels in love with." -Helena Hunting, New York Times bestselling author of Shacking Up
