Fifteen Minutes of Summer

Heather Wardell
Free sample

As long as people keep talking about me, I'm happy." Former reality-TV contestant and current fashion designer/celebrity reporter Summer Young lives by those words. Since her time on the "Ragged Royalty" program Summer's been looking for her big break in either fashion or show biz, whichever will let her show her family of literal geniuses that she can still be a success without being smart.

Touched to be asked to help her ex-husband Kent and his crazily private fiancée Madeleine-Cora plan their nuptials, Summer throws herself into taking charge of everything and being the perfect bridesmaid and even making MC's bridal gown. At the same time, she's juggling her romance with show-mate Aaron and her growing friendship with Kent's brother Ron and the pressure from her celebrity-gossip-site boss who's demanding every intimate wedding detail Kent and MC would never want shared.

If Summer shares those details with the world, she'll get the attention and approval she's always wanted, but she'll lose her friends and the people who matter most to her. Are her fifteen minutes of fame worth the privacy they'll cost?

Editorial Reviews

"Helen has weaved a delicately balanced story of intrigue, secrets and passion, which practically melts the pages." -Bare Naked Words

"The love story between Talon and Jade continues in Obsession. An apt title to be sure, because everyone is obsessed. Dear Ms. Helen Hardt, I toss many profanities your way for making me wait. Though I give you my deepest gratitude for building the anticipation of what I’m sure will be an epic culmination to an amazing series. " -Heroes and Heartbreakers

"Talon and Jade's chemistry sizzles and the love scenes will melt your heart and your Kindle." -The Book Sirens

Synopsis

Jade Roberts is in love with Talon Steel but no longer welcome in his home. While she resolves to move on, she still longs for the passion she and Talon shared…and when her boss asks her to dig up information on the Steels, she’s only too happy to comply. Talon and his brothers are hiding something, and Jade is determined to find out what it is.

The moment Talon saw Jade he wanted her, ached for her, craved her…and now his desire has become his obsession. He knows she deserves better than his broken soul, but he can’t stay away from her, and he finally confesses his love. If he and Jade are to have a future, he knows he must make peace with the dark shadows and horrors of his past.

But as Talon begins his journey of healing, Jade uncovers some startling secrets…

"It's the Game of Pies: You win or your relationship dies."

Thirty-somethings Brittany and Kyle have only been together four months, but she knows he's the one. Hosting Thanksgiving dinner at their Toronto apartment, with the food catered since neither of them are good cooks, will be a perfect way for their relatives to meet and become one big happy family.

Marilyn and Virginia have hated each other for nearly sixty years, since Virginia got herself pregnant by Marilyn's boyfriend then married him. Both too stubborn to leave their small Ontario town and let the other one win, their feud rages on whenever they encounter each other and particularly at the town's annual pie-making contest, which only they enter because nobody else dares to get caught in their crossfire.

When the relatives arrive on Thanksgiving, the truth comes out: Marilyn is Brittany's grandmother, and Virginia is Kyle's. And for once Marilyn and Virginia agree on something: no relation of that horrible woman is good enough for my grandchild.

Desperate to stop the unending guilt trips but not willing to cut the grandmothers they love from their lives, Brittany and Kyle accept an invitation to the ultimate battle: the pie-making contest. If they win, the grandmothers agree to accept their relationship, or at least pretend to, and be civil to each other. Lose? The grandmothers will never again be in the same room, so Brittany and Kyle will spend every holiday separately while listening to their grandmothers criticize their partners.

With only two months to learn to bake a better pie than women who've been at it for decades, can Brittany and Kyle win "The Game of Pies" and save their relationship?
