Hijinks are bound to ensue.Anna is a famous romance novelist who just finished her most popular series ever. Now she has a problem. Her renegotiated contract obligates her to write several more books in continuation and Anna won't see another original title on the shelves until this part is fulfilled. The trouble is, the story is done, period. Does anyone care? Nope! With the publisher pressuring her for a manuscript she has no inspiration to write, Anna is left banging her head between a rock and a hard place.Enter: Alex Smiles, a consultant for hire, sent by Anna's agent to help her meet the fast-approaching deadline.
