Behind a Lady's Smile-


Behind a Lady’s Smile 
The Lost Heiresses
It’s one thing for a girl to lose her way, quite another to lose her heart…
Genny Hayes could charm a bear away from a pot of honey. But raised in the forests of Yosemite, she’s met precious few men to practice her smiles upon. Until a marvelously handsome photographer appears in her little corner of the wilderness and she convinces him to take her clear across the country and over the seas to England, where she has a titled grandmother and grandfather waiting to claim her. On their whirlwind journey, she’ll have the chance to bedazzle and befuddle store clerks and train robbers, society matrons and big city reporters, maids and madams, but the one man she most wants to beguile seems determined to play the gentlemen and leave her untouched. Until love steps in and knocks them both head over heels…

Synopsis: Beth, in another life, was a top student and had nothing but visions of a successful career in her head. That was until one night with Sterling Johnson, the sexy and deceitful swim champion next door, who changed her entire future. Now, because of that night from her past, Beth’s path as a photographer is forever changed. Gone is the young women she used to be as she struggles to keep a secret hidden.

Sterling Johnson, on the other hand, has quickly become America’s favorite Olympic athlete. Constantly followed and stalked by the press and the father he has turned his back on, Sterling craves someone who isn’t interested in his celebrity.

When a publicity stunt takes him back to a wild college campus and Beth, who turns out to be the media photographer assigned to his story, the flame he thought was dead rekindles. Will Beth prove to be the only girl not interested in his celebrity status? Or are her own twisted secrets and lies about to bring both their worlds down?


“What the hell are you doing here?” came the hissing voice of Tyler Radeler. He was an unpaid intern at the new company Beth had gotten a post-college paid photography internship at. He was also her biggest competition when it came to which of them would move up to having an actual job at their top media and photography company.“I thought you said you weren’t trying to cover this, that you loathed Olympic athletes and jocks. That they are all ‘awful,’ or something along those lines,” Tyler said as he stuffed pieces of sushi into his mouth and spoke while masticating his food. The smell and sight was enough to make Beth feel like what she ate that morning was slowly rising to the surface. Who says getting pregnant makes you fat? Beth was having trouble keeping weight on right now due to the retching.
            “I changed my mind,” she told him as she turned her body around to face away. He didn’t get the hint as his body turned with hers, and behold, in front of them was one of the most beautiful female swimmers who had participated in the last two Olympic Games: Catalina Veselov.
            She walked into the ball in a sequined blue dress that made her look all but nearly naked in the best possible way. Parts of her back, the space between her legs, and the top part of her chest were covered with sheer, shining fabric that threatened to move at any moment but didn’t. Tyler’s mouth dropped open as he took in the girl and nearly forgot to do what he was here for, to snap a time stopping photo.
            Beth, unlike the others, would have zoomed in on her face, rather than Catalina’s body. It held a secret, something calculating, though perhaps Beth was seeing that out of envy as she was forced, due to her circumstances, to wear baggie outfits in order to cover her expanding belly. If Tyler or my boss finds out I’m pregnant, Tyler will be given the photography job over me, I’m sure of it.
            Beth’s thoughts began to spin as her nerves continued and the climax of the evening approached. “Your aspirations can’t be what haunts your feelings anymore,” Beth’s mom had told her as the two of them teared up when Beth announced she was pregnant. “You need to think about this unborn person inside you, and about his or hers father who deserves to know what’s going on.” Too bad nothing had ended on good terms their one night together. In fact, the entire time Beth and Sterling had been neighbors in college they had been arguing constantly just to see who could piss off the other first.
            Right as Beth’s mind reregistered all this, he entered the Governor’s Ball and cameras began to flash wildly. America’s new mega athlete was here, and just as the magazines and tabloids had framed him, Sterling looked better than ever. His blue eyes landed right on Catalina, who was now lifting her hands to her hips as he approached. He didn’t see Beth who was being suffocated by all her fellow media minions.
            The athletic duo walked right passed everyone to the refreshment area for the governor’s guests. It was time for the governor’s speech which was on the importance of the Summer Olympics and how it, like the Winter Olympics, had the ability to try and bring the entire world together despite everyone’s many differences.

            God, I’m going to have to yell to get him to see me. And if he does spot me, will he even be willing to talk? What was I thinking that as an intern from a media company I’d be able to just pull him aside?

Love, Lattes and Danger bcc:
It’s a dirty job, but some mutant’s got to do it…
Joel Eisler is a mutant with special talents. He can detect an oil leak in the ocean simply by tasting the water. Because of this unique ability, he’s been purchased by a large oil company, along with his dolph sister, Amy. The upside of spending his days and nights in the ocean is that it gives him the opportunity to save the lives of his brother dolphins. The downsides are life as a closely monitored slave—and that he can’t be with Piper, the dolph-girl he loves…
To make matters worse, Joel discovers the lab he grew up in has extracted his sperm and Piper’s egg and created a baby, and his handler, Craven, is plotting to kidnap Amy for more experiments. Now Joel must rescue the infant, bring her to Piper, and find a way to save Amy. And if that’s not enough of a challenge, he needs to convince Piper she belongs with him instead of her all-too-human boyfriend—if Craven doesn’t get to them first…
