Undercover Bachelor by Maria Geraci
A Sleepless in Seattle meets The Bachelor romantic comedy
When third-generation Texas oil tycoon Sam DeLuca reluctantly goes on America’s favorite TV dating show, he doesn’t expect to be kicked off on the first night. Embarrassing? Hell, yeah. Then something even worse happens. The Twittersphere erupts with outrage, and single women everywhere suddenly want to date him. Maybe being hounded by hotties is a dream for most guys, but the attention has Sam fleeing his overzealous fans.
Annie Esposito thinks love at first sight only happens in the movies. She’s been humiliated in love before, thanks to the Unfortunate Incident, as everyone in her small town still calls it. Even so, when her book club friends cancel their meeting in favor of watching a reality TV dating show, Annie can’t help but be drawn to the self-deprecating and charmingly witty Sam. On a whim, Annie writes Sam a letter pouring out all her pent-up feelings, never dreaming that he’ll actually read it.
As the publicity surrounding the show becomes too much to handle, Sam goes to Annie’s hometown on a double mission: hide out from the press and meet the woman who wrote him the smart and quirky letter he can’t stop thinking about.
Sam and Annie have a less than auspicious first meeting, but their instant chemistry makes Annie wonder if maybe happily-ever-after really does exist. Still, reality TV and reality are two very different things, and her scarred soul and Sam’s family obligations stand in the way of a Hollywood ending. Can she put aside her painful past—and can he learn to follow his heart—so they can create a real-life fairy tale together?
UNDERCOVER BACHELOR is the beginning novella in the small town romantic comedy series, Undercover Matchmakers. Each book can be read as a stand alone and guarantees a happily-ever-after. Look for book two in the series, FLIRTING FOR AMATEURS, coming soon! PG13
