PIcture PerfectBeing the daughter of a big-city mayor, twenty-one year old Skye Summers has giant shoes to fill in her first real job out of college.

Playboy entrepreneur Landon Steele has built a successful entertainment PR firm and broken more than a few hearts along the way. He’s counting on his enthusiastic new assistant to help him expand his business into LA… until he discovers she’s a pampered rich girl who’s in the public spotlight as much as his famous clients. Still, he agrees to give her a chance, and soon the two are heating up the bedroom as well as the boardroom.

But when Skye’s ex-boyfriend threatens to reveal a dangerous secret from her past, her job, relationship with Landon, and her father’s career are suddenly all on the line. Will she be forced to leave Landon? Or will she pursue her heart, regardless of the cost?

REVIEW: PICTURE PERFECT is the second instalment in Elisabeth Grace’s contemporary, adult Limelight erotic romance series. This is twenty one year old political socialite Skye Summers and billionaire entrepreneur Landon Steele’s storyline. Although it is the second in the series, it can be read as a stand alone.

The premise of the storyline follows Skye Summers as she embarks on a new job in the prestigious PR firm owned by Landon Steele-a man she met once on a previous occasion and a man she could not forget. Working for the beautiful and sexy Landon Steele is the perfect position for Skye but their attraction to one another is palpable and forbidden. When Skye’s ex boyfriend demands a do over, Skye will be caught between what she knows is right and what she believes she has to do to protect everyone that she loves.

The relationship between Skye and Landon is one of forbidden love-Landon is Skye’s boss but their attraction and need for one another overrides their sense of right and wrong, and they agree to keep their relationship a secret. As the storyline builds, so too does their love but Skye’s ex has a plan that will ensure that Skye walks away leaving a heartbroken Landon to pick up the pieces of his heart and a business deal that is about to go horribly wrong.

The world building pulls together the business of public relations in world of entertainment and politics; social media and its’ poisonous touch; and a friendship between friends that is the only constant in a young woman’s life that is about to be turned upside down.

The secondary characters include Skye’s ex boyfriend; bad boy actor Calder Fox-the hero of book three in the Limelight series- Collateral Damage; Skye’s BFF Ellie and Mason from book one in Rumor Has It; Skye’s loving family and friend Katie; and Landon’s broken family and the mother for whom he has worked to get to where he is today. Each of these characters imparts a small bit of history and present day color.

Elisabeth Grace writes a sensual and seductive story where the reader will root for the forbidden love of a workplace romance; where the boss falls hard for his assistant knowing that to risk his heart also means to risk his soul. The reader is pulled into a wonderfully, sexy storyline that is intimate and provocative; emotional and intense; passionate and erotic.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date December 2, 2013

***THIS BOOK CAN BE READ AS A STANDALONE***

Rumor Has ItAll publicity is good publicity, right? Unless you’re recent college grad Ellie Wagner and an embarrassing video of you and your boyfriend goes viral. Every man in your life abandons you, but who knew a one-minute clip of your latest doomed relationship would brand you a slut, prevent you from getting your perfect job, and force you to keep doing the one thing you swore you’d never do again…live with your mother.

But staying with mom and her latest boy-toy (is this husband number four or five?) until your life turns around might not be all bad. Especially when you fall – literally – at the feet of a sexy, green-eyed stranger who offers you freedom and a life of luxury on a gold-rimmed platter.

There’s only one little problem – the man of your dreams is none other than Mason Nash, the latest hip-hop star busting up the music charts. Fame and fortune are his calling cards and he’s vying to steal the show on a new reality TV series that will catapult him into mainstream stardom. Hello spotlight.

The man behind the famous persona is perfect for Ellie in every way, but can she overcome the ugly pitfalls that come with Mason’s celebrity status? Or will she be forced to choose between the man she loves and the independent life she longs for? After all, fame and fortune aren’t always what they seem and not all publicity is good publicity…

REVIEW: RUMOR HAS IT is the first instalment in Elisabeth Grace’s contemporary, new adult LIMELIGHT romance series. This is hip-hop star Mason Nash and media graduate Ellie Wagner’s story. Working a secretarial job at a local real estate office in Virginia, Ellie’s boss demands that she head over to the beach front mansion where the latest renter has misplaced the key. What Ellie never thought was to find herself falling through the bathroom window at the feet of a gorgeous man with beautiful eyes.

The focus of the storyline is on the building relationship between Ellie and Mason. Never having been a fan of hip-hop music, Ellie has no idea who or what is Mason Nash but a trip to Texas to visit Mason’s mother will show Ellie the truth. Along with Mason’s fame come the usual paparazzi, intrusive questions and a team of people who have no need for Ellie in Mason’s life.

The relationship between Ellie and Mason is one of instant attraction, romantic seduction and quick to develop. Mason is only in town for a month of R&R but as the end draws near Mason wants Ellie in his life for a much longer time. Behind the scenes there are people hoping to pull Mason and Ellie apart and with a few well placed clues, Ellie will find herself alone and wondering where it all went wrong.

The secondary characters are colorful and plenty including Ellie’s friend and co-worker Katie and her BFF Skye-Skye’s story will be told in the next instalment. We are introduced to Mason’s manager whose motives are questionable from the very start; and a few of the people who work behind the scenes in the music industry. Both Mason and Ellie’s dysfunctional families will play a role in their lives and we will see how their interaction has shaped the people they are today.

Elisabeth Grace pulls the reader into an emotional storyline-Ellie and Mason both had unstable childhoods –where betrayal and hurt were all a part of growing up; and where trust must be earned and never assumed. In this, trust is a major issue within the storyline where both Ellie and Mason must learn to let go of the past.

RUMOR HAS IT is a story where social media can either make or break a star; where the paparazzi and rumor mongers work hard to destroy what is left of one’s faith in humanity; and where love ever lasting may only be as real as the reality of TV and music.
