About the Book
Before filming starts on her next movie, America’s sweetheart, Grace Carradine, wants a girls’ night out. As she dons a disguise to evade the paparazzi, her brown hair isn’t the only deception, so is her upcoming marriage to her co-star. Naval-pilot-turned-author, Sebastian “Bash” Baron finds his friends are pairing up and starting families. Given his history, he knows that life isn’t for him—even if the period romance he wrote is being made into a movie. Those stories only exist in fiction—or other people’s lives.
The two begin a secret romance, meant to last only as long as the starlet is on location in Bash’s hometown. When the paparazzi, obligations, and pride tear them apart, will Bash come to his senses in time, or will Grace marry the wrong man?
Grace leaned back against the seat, second-guessing their scheme. “What if someone sees through my disguise and starts snapping pictures, or worse, what if we didn’t give Pete Vader the slip after all.” Her chest tightened, pulse raced. Anxiety pricked her scalp. She fingered the charm bracelet on her wrist. In recent months, the paparazzo had escalated his coverage of her, even following her into the women’s restroom at Exchange LA.
“It’s not worth it, Gracie.”
Where to Buy

- The final chapter of Out of Time has a little kidnapping in it.
- If Sebastian Baron were alive, the author would have a hard time keeping her hands off him.
- Grace Carradine is modelled after Grace Kelly.
