Book 1, Once Upon a Time
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Passion, suspense, and a bit of magic come together in an irresistible short novel from bestselling author Kay Hooper’s Once Upon a Time series: the tale of a real-life Rapunzel who needs a hero fast.
Lara Mason just wants to let her hair down a little. A community theater production of a children’s fairy tale seems like a perfectly harmless break from a life in hiding. But the cyber criminals who murdered her father are stalking her, and they’ve tracked her down once again. Enter Devon Shane—dark, brooding, and sexy as a rock star, the chivalrous counterpart to her Rapunzel. Before long her mysterious co-star pulls her out of harm’s way—twice—and kisses her senseless, adding a seductive twist to a savage plot.
Working undercover for the FBI, Devon thinks he’s got his part down cold: act the prince, protect the fair maiden, and break up a ring of spies trading on corporate espionage. But as soon as Devon lays eyes on brave, lovely Lara, he starts improvising. Because the powerful emotions he’s feeling are as real as the peril she’s facing. Now, with a relentless evil closing in, he needs to win Lara’s trust if he wants a shot at happily ever after.
Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
Modern day Rapunzel
This is a reissue of a story published years ago. It's been slightly updated but the core of the story remains the same. During a local production of Rapunzel, Lara Mason and Devon Shane meet. There is a bit of insta-love here but in this story it works. Lara is currently in witness protection so obviously she has secrets no one can know. Devon is an FBI agent who was sent in to find out if Lara is the one guilty of leaking information about her case. Never being able to trust anyone it's not easy for Lara but she feels a connection to Devon and decides to really let him in. Is this a mistake or the best decision of her life??
I enjoyed this one and would recommend it.
