Jack's House  Releases Perfect Ten by Nikki Worrell

Man candy isn’t on her menu. But maybe one taste won’t hurt…

Joe Starling has been stinking rich, and he’s been poor. But from the moment he figured out what makes women scream, he’s been raking in the cash. Not as a prostitute. Not technically.

Sex isn’t officially part of the Perfect Ten escort service’s package. Yet Joe is almost embarrassed to admit his “package” has gotten quite a workout in the past seven years. Truth be told, the ladies want him, and he can’t say no.

Faith Graham’s first reaction to Joe Starling? No. Make that hell no. She needs an average Joe on her arm for her model-thin sister’s wedding. Who will believe a dazzling hunk like him would date the Graham sister who has a few too many curves?

For the first time, Joe experiences what it’s like for a woman to look at him with loathing rather than lust. And he doesn’t like the feeling. Because there is nothing in this world he wants more than to turn her emphatic no into a heartfelt yes. In fact, a lifetime of yes would work just fine for him

Jack's House Publishing is pleased to announce its first acquisition. A Midsummer Night's Fling, by Eliza Walker

From Marie Force, Publisher…
One of the key elements of our program at Jack’s House is that I want to get behind books I truly love, and I adored Eliza’s wonderful, magical book. I love that she has created an amazing world inside a theater company that had me turning the pages to see what would happen next in the drama within the drama. And she managed to do something that none of my English teachers could ever do (despite trying relentlessly)—she made me love a story that features Shakespeare. As I told her when I offered to acquire the book, that—in and of itself—is a huge accomplishment. I absolutely loved Max and Nicola’s sexy, sweet romance, and I think you will, too!

A Midsummer Night’s Fling, The Much Ado About Love Series, Book 1

The show must go on, but the price of admission could be her heart.
Sick of a touring actor’s vagabond life, Nicola returns to California to put the past firmly behind her. It would help if the six-foot-three-inch beautiful man who is her past didn’t come knocking. Max. The mistake Nicola can’t seem to stop making. Though she has no desire to re-re-rekindle their old flame, Nicola jumps at his offer to play Titania to his Oberon. But when their first rehearsal kiss disintegrates into a passionate liplock, she’s tempted to jump ship before Max can break her heart again.

Unless he can convince her that the torch he’s been carrying is an eternal flame.

About Eliza
Eliza Walker, a native of Los Angeles, is the author of the Much Ado About Love Series that begins with A Midsummer Night’s Fling. Her experiences as an actress helped inspire the series about actors finding love amidst the bedlam backstage at a world-class repertory theater. Once upon a time, Eliza met her own wonderful husband when they did a play together. By day Eliza helps corral engineers for NASA (without doing any of the tech stuff herself, of course). By night she loves to write her sarcastic heroes and heroines bantering their way to true love. Eliza is a total geek, a movie buff and a mediocre swing dancer.

Eliza and her husband live in sunny Southern California with two of the neediest housecats on the planet.
