Please note: the entire novel can also be purchased separately, just search for: This Much Is True, Book 1 (Parts 1, 2, 3).


Both on the verge of fame. A ballerina who lies. A baseball player who believes her. Well, the truth changes everything.

Tally Landon just wants to escape her tragic story if just for one night. She doesn't count on meeting Stanford's baseball wonder, but now she just plans to add Lincoln Presley to her long list of one-night stands. That's the plan. Lying to the guy about her age and her name is just a part of her don't-get-emotionally-attached modus operandi. She doesn't count on being found out, falling in love, or ever seeing him again. Ballet is her life; she plans on keeping it that way.

Lincoln Presley's life is all mapped out. There is only baseball. With the major leagues circling their favorite prospect with a lucrative offer, he cannot afford to mess up. And, he doesn't; until he meets up with the girl he saved from the burning wreckage on the 101 on Valentine's Day months before. By the time he learns her real name and of all the lies she's told, he's in far too deep to ever really let her go.

When fame and lies tear them apart, one truth remains because fate, most definitely, has a different set of plans. This much is true.

"I believe that all I can do is inspire (or, is that "grind"?) both my readers and myself in what I construe as reality. Someone has to capture the sad, emotional, angsty love stuff that often collides with fate. It might as well be me. Apparently, I am THAT writer. ~ Katherine Owen
