STAND-IN STAR
Carina Press, 1st January 2013


As an anthropologist, Holly McCartney is more comfortable in a museum than shopping on Rodeo Drive. She isn't prepared for the media frenzy on her arrival in L.A. to accept a posthumous acting award for her late sister... or for her sister's gorgeous friend Nate Devlin to come to her rescue. Though he resents her for some reason, she can't fight their irresistible chemistry-especially when the paparazzi force her to stay at his mansion.

Photographer Nate only agrees to help Holly survive Hollywood for her sister's sake, but she soon gets under his skin in a way no other woman has. The more time he spends with her, the more his attraction grows and he finds himself opening up to her in ways he never expected. But will ghosts of the past stand in the way of their perfect Hollywood ending?



 
"Stand-In Star is a mesmerizing tale of two people who have been hurt in the past that are afraid to love again.  I enjoyed the glitz and glamour of the Hollywood setting, and the chemistry between Holly and Nate was utterly delicious. Rachael Johns has penned a love story that is sure to earn a keeper spot on your shelves!" - Sara from Harlequin Junkie blog

"ahem* Holy erotic photoshoots...whoa! This was a thoroughly enjoyable book. I loved the added story that Nate is a photographer who has a paparazzi background. His art plays creates an interesting effect to the story. And seriously, when he plays with his photography with Holly...seriously, WOW! Everything about that scene is HOT, HOT, HOT!" - Christi from Smitten With Reading Blog

"A glamorous and intense Hollywood love story with a sexy brooding hero and a bold and beautiful heroine. Nice one, Ms Johns! A new romance star is born." - Heidi Rice
