"The Author and The Cover Model takes you into the real world of romance publishing then twists into the perfect fairytale."
As a child, KaLoni Kalamaiia was taught to believe that loving a man was sinful and dirty. She comes to fear a man's touch and has never had a lasting relationship. She resigns herself to a life wherein she can experience passion only through the lives of the fictional characters she creates. Her fear of intamacy gets the ultimate test, however, when she becomes a famous romance author and comes face to face with her cover model, gorgeous Zach Maronaro, whom she believes to be a conceited womanizer.
Zach, tired of being mobbed by women and treated like a sex toy, is ready to go home to his ranch in Montana as soon as he finishes his contract and the book tour with new author, KaLoni. He believes, however, that the shy KaLoni is only using a different tactic to get into his bed. When he discovers she sincerely thinks he's a jerk and doesn't want to be anywhere near him, he takes a second look and sets out to conquer.
KaLoni finds herself embroiled in a romance as hot as her novel, with all the conflicts, clichés, and comedies she tries not to write! But to her surprise, she loses her inhibitions under Zach's patient and understanding tutoring. Fighting their growing feelings for each other, the two fall in love only to have their relationship threatened by people from their pasts.
Set in wild Montana and exotic Hawaii, this fast-paced romance is steamy yet sweet. Charm O'Ryan doesn't miss a beat in this unique love story that will not only make you laugh, but will tug at your heartstrings as well. The Author and The Cover Model takes you into the real world of romance publishing then twists into the perfect fairytale.
