Release date: December 5, 2016

Matchmaking guru Kennedy Pepperdine's life is perfect. Perfect job. Perfect friends. Perfect boyfriend. Except...when she gets trapped in an elevator with a handsome stranger, she accidentally confesses a secret: maybe her perfect boyfriend, Justin, isn't so perfect for her after all. But a matchmaker should be able to successfully match herself, right? Thankfully, she'll never see the handsome stranger again. Until she heads home with Justin for the holidays and learns that the sexy stranger is none other than Justin's older brother, Matt.

Matt Ellis is trying to be on his best behavior for his mother-it is Christmas, after all. But when he recognizes the beautiful woman from the elevator-the one he hasn't been able to stop thinking about for months-his best behavior is being held by a thread. Matt's always sacrificed for his family, and nothing is more important than their happiness, but the more time he spends around Kennedy, the more he wonders if her supposed "right match" might just be the wrong brother.

From Fake to Forever
By Jennifer Shirk
Publisher: Entangled (Bliss)
Release date: June 6, 2016

Sandra Moyer's preschool is struggling, so when her sister suggests allowing a super-famous actor to research his latest role there, she reluctantly agrees. Except the actor turns out to be Ben Capshaw--a playboy who's never serious, always joking around, and who knows zero about kids or being a parent. Case in point: his involvement in the untimely death of the preschool's class pet...

Ben is enjoying teaching more than he thought he would, but that doesn't mean he's looking for a permanent position. Sure, he's ready for more serious movie roles and less goofing off, but the buttoned-up, beautiful Sandra and her young daughter are more than he bargained for. Plus, Sandra still won't trust him--what if it's all an act, research for the role? As the lines between make-believe and reality blur, Ben will have to decide if love is worth casting aside the role of his life for a new role...that could last a lifetime.

Previously released as The Role of a Lifetime - (May 2008) and has been enhanced with new material.

The Role Of A Lifetime
By Jennifer Shirk
ISBN: 978-1605041599 (print)

There's more to life than playing make believe.

Sandra Moyer has a good reason to distrust actors. She was once married to one who left her and her child. However, she's desperate for publicity to help her struggling preschool. Hollywood playboy Ben Capshaw's request to access her classes to prepare for a role is an offer she can't refuse.

Sandra second guesses herself on that decision until she sees Ben in action with the children. Her apprehension turns to wonder, and then to feelings she'd thought were closed off forever. Yet how can she trust that what she's seeing is real?

As a boy, Ben learned that acting was the answer to everything. The role he's up for now will enhance his career and, he's sure, secure his happiness. But spending time with Sandra and her daughter stirs up emotions that-for once-aren't pretend.

Ben's ready for a lifetime role as husband and father-if he can convince Sandra not to typecast him.
