Walk of Shame

If you loved the Amy Adams/Patrick Dempsey movie Enchanted, then you are going to love this book. Essentially, it’s Enchanted fan fiction and I don’t mean that as a bad thing. Stuffy divorce lawyer Andrew has zero time for ridiculousness, frivolity, fluff - whatever word you want to assign to hi ...

I Wish You Were Mine

I Wish You Were Mine is the second story in Lauren Layne’s Oxford series, a spin-off of her Sex, Love and Stiletto series which featured the women of a Cosmospolitan-esque magazine. Similarly, Oxford is a GQ type of men’s magazine. The hero of this story, Jackson, has taken a job at Oxford as a ...
