“Queen of the Universe” by Geralyn Corcillo
Blurb: TV writer extraordinaire Lola Scott is about to lose her show because she STILL hasn’t cast the role of Sam Destry, the dark, brooding bounty hunter. But then HE walks in … Arlen Black, and he’s perfect for the part. One problem, though. He’s not an actor there to audition. Nope. He’s the handyman Lola hired to renovate her historic Hollywood house.
No problem. Lola gleefully offers him the dream job of a lifetime. No dice—the stoic recluse-in-a-tool-belt wants nothing to do with Lola and her show. But Lola doesn’t give up. She goes after Arlen using every trick she can think of, but her Hollywood machinations just bounce right off him.
Why can’t she get a bead on this guy?
A scrambling Lola is about to get the ax when Arlen surprises her socks off and signs on to play Sam. She has no idea why he changed his mind, but she doesn’t have time to stop and think about it. Not when she has to get him camera-ready, suppress her totally unprofessional attraction to him, and hide from the studio exec, her million-dollar leading lady, and the world at large that her ace-in-the-hole leading man is really just her sexy handyman.
As the show starts to come together, Hollywood gossip sinks its claws into Arlen. When one paparazzi photo threatens to destroy everything he holds dear, Lola finally understands why he upended his life to do the show and save her career. Now she’s got to move heaven and Earth not to save the show … but to save Arlen.
