For all of my wonderful followers I am going to give you a taste of my debut novel.  I hope you enjoy Talia and Zeke as much as I did.  Be sure to check out the early reviews!

419gGu2-pcLBook Blurb: 

1 gossip writer + 1 A-list movie star = 1 fake relationship…or does it?

After breaking a story that rocks Hollywood, Talia is the top gossip writer around. One night will put all of that into question. The writer becomes the story when she gets caught doing the walk of shame from A-lister Zee Jaxon’s home.

To save both of their reputations he suggests a fake relationship. Pretending should be easy. It shouldn’t mean the fake feelings become real. Accepting the real feelings means the lies they’ve told are even harder to hide.

When the truth comes out can their love survive or will everything just fade to black?

Exclusive Excerpt:

Prelude to Success

“Excuse me, Miss?  Can we use this chair?”  Talia’s gaze lifted from the menu.

“Uh.  I’m still waiting for someone.”

“Oh.  Alright.”  He approached another table with an empty chair.

Talia looked at her watch.  An hour late.  That son of a bitch was standing her up.  It was the last time she was going to use that dating app.

She sighed and wondered if she should leave now or wait a bit longer.

“Ready to order?”  The waiter approached the table for the fifth time.  His impatience was showing.

He had a look of ridicule.  Yes, she was being stood up.  Yes, she looked sad and lonely.  Was she going to let that get her down?  Hell, No!

“Yes.  I’d like the salmon with a salad.”  She closed the menu.

He snapped his order pad shut. Before he walked away, he made as much noise as possible taking away the other plates and glasses.

“Thanks.”  Talia mumbled taking a sip of her wine.

Talia knew she wasn’t the best catch.  She was curvy, outspoken and if she was being honest, plain.  Most men didn’t give her a second look.  Her last resort was that stupid dating app.  Staring at the seat across from her, clearly that app was crap.

While Talia waited for her meal, she took her tablet out.  She was working on an article for the tabloid magazine, The Dirty Laundry.  The last three years she’d been working her way up the chain.  Talia had an uncanny way of being in the right place at the right time for celebrity gossip.  Recently, she’d hit a dry spell.  Her current article was nothing to write home about.  Pun intended.

“Come on, baby!  I can’t wait to get back to your place.”  A familiar squeaky voice sounded from a booth to her right.

“Calm down, Gwynny.  You know I’m going to give you what you want.”  A sultry female voice answered.

Talia glanced over trying to look inconspicuous.  A beautiful blonde woman was practically sitting in the dark-haired woman’s lap.  Talia snapped her head back to her notebook.

Sitting in the booth was A-list star Gwyn Smythe.  The woman who’s lap she was sitting in was her manager, Gina Bartholomew.  This normally wouldn’t qualify as scandalous, but Gwyn was currently engaged to Zee Jaxon, A-list action star.

Talia snuck her phone out of her purse.  She strategically propped her phone up to snap consecutive pictures of the women canoodling.

“Here you go.”  The waiter placed her food in front of her.

“Thanks.”  Talia watched her phone snap the pictures.

“Anything, else.”  He snapped.

“No.”

“No wonder he didn’t show.”  He mumbled as he walked away.

The comment stung but the reality of what she was getting dulled the pain.

Twenty minutes later, Gwyn and Gina left arm and arm.  Talia texted the pictures to her boss.

Her phone pinged immediately with a message.

Talia smiled.

Dropping money on the table she grabbed her tablet and walked calmly out of the restaurant.

Ten years ago, Whitney Gable caught me off guard with her long legs and grab-you-by-the-balls blue eyes.

I didn’t know or care what her name was.

Like any Riscoff worth the family name, I went after what I wanted. We burned like a flash fire until she married another man.

She hates me, and she should.

I objected on her wedding day.

Now she’s home, with those same long legs and man-eater stare, but there’s no ring on her finger.

Love Online EXCERPT teaser

Copyright © 2018, Penelope Ward

Excerpt:

Needing a few seconds to prepare, I closed my eyes the moment I knew he was about to turn on the camera.

I don’t know why I was so afraid to see him. Maybe I was worried his looks would somehow change the way I viewed him. I hated that I’d even had that thought. I didn’t want to be unattracted to him physically because I was so very drawn to him in every other way. Shouldn’t those be the ways that mattered? I was scared I would somehow feel differently about him, and he deserved better than to be judged on his physical appearance.

“You can open your eyes,” he said.

My heart felt like it was pounding out of my chest.

Here goes.

One, two, three…

When I saw him right in front of me, my mouth fell open.

Oh.

Oh my.

Oh wow.

Big, glowing eyes. Perfect nose. Stubbled, angular jaw. Full lips. Strong arms. I just kept blinking because I couldn’t believe my eyes. He looked like a model or a movie star. A rush of insecurity hit me.

Is this a joke?

No, it wasn’t.

It was really him.

Ryder.

Oh my God.

The lust consuming me made me feel almost guilty. But I was so damn relieved that he was truly as beautiful on the outside as I believed him to be on the inside. He was almost too beautiful, if there were such a thing.

He looked nothing like the vague image I’d formed in my head, which was sort of like a silhouette without a clear face but with a brown beard, kind of like a hipster. Not sure why I’d pictured him like that. It was kind of funny how off base I was. This was not what I’d been expecting. Because how could someone so thoughtful, attentive, creative, and considerate be so strikingly handsome that he made me speechless? And it was clear now that his sexy voice absolutely fit him.

“You’re…” I hesitated.

“Oh shit.” He laughed. “What are you thinking?”

“No. No, no, no. Nothing bad at all. I just don’t even know how to articulate it. You’re…beautiful, Ryder. Absolutely beautiful.”

He let out a breath. “And you’re…handsome, Eden. Very handsome.” His impish grin was so sexy.

I chuckled. “I know beautiful is an odd term for a man, but you are. All this time you’ve been hiding from me when you’re drop-dead gorgeous. Why?”

“You really did think I was ashamed of my looks, huh?”

“Well, I’d be lying if I said that didn’t cross my mind. I wondered if there was something you were self-conscious about. That always made me a little sad. But it never mattered to me, because I’ve been connecting with you on a deeper level.”

“I think that’s exactly why I didn’t want to change things,” he said. “Why fix something if it ain’t broken?” When I fell silent, he asked, “What are you thinking?”

A nervous energy overtook me. “Nothing. I’m…still just taking you in.”

“Okay. Let me know when you’re done so I can stop sucking in my abs.”

Love Online Ebook

Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy STANDALONE novel.

We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod” and she was “Montana,” but of course, those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind.

Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape—my sanctuary.

Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out.

From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed.

She was an addiction.

At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities…and she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise.

Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeous—everything I’d ever wanted in a woman.

But I couldn’t really have her.

I had accepted things would have to stay the way they were—until the day I found a clue that led me straight to her.

So I took a chance.

And that was when our love story really began.
