Spinning a story of a joyous marriage to make 
a dying woman happy is forgivable, isn’t it?

Charmed in Texas #1

Releasing April 18th, 2017
Lyrical Shine

Lanie Barrett didn’t mean to lie. Spinning a story of a joyous marriage to make a dying woman happy is forgivable, isn’t it? Lanie thinks so, especially since her beloved Aunt Ruby would have been heartbroken to know the truth of her niece’s sadly loveless, short-of-sparkling existence. Trouble is, according to the will, Ruby didn’t quite buy Lanie’s tale. And to inherit the only house Lanie ever really considered a home, she’ll have to bring her “husband” back to Charmed, Texas for three whole months—or watch Aunt Ruby’s cozy nest go to her weasel cousin, who will sell it to a condo developer.

Nick McKane is out of work, out of luck, and the spitting image of the man Lanie described. He needs money for his daughter’s art school tuition, and Lanie needs a convenient spouse. It’s a match made . . . well, not quite in heaven, but for a temporary arrangement, it couldn’t be better. Except the longer Lanie and Nick spend as husband and wife, the more the connection between them begins to seem real. Maybe this modern fairy tale really could come true . . .


A Charmed Little Lie is a wonderfully romantic start to the new series by Sharla Lovelace. Lanie has a not so charmed life, but decides spinning a tale for her dying aunt wouldn’t hurt anyone. When goes home to settle her Aunt Ruby's estate, she thinks she’s pulled the wool over her aunt’s eyes, until the will states she has to be married to inherit. Wanting the only house she’s ever loved, Lanie decides all she needs is a ‘husband’ for three months, and it’s hers. Nick McKane is a down on his luck father who has no job, a daughter with expensive needs, and an ex-wife who likes to play games. When the will has been read and Nick finds out he has to play Lanie’s lover for three months, he sees dollar signs. An opportunity to pay his daughter’s tuition is too much to pass up, but when he starts to have real feelings for Lanie things heat up. A ghost, a meddling cousin, and a greedy ex-wife all try to insert themselves in this romance, but the town of Charmed is behind Nick and Lannie 100%. Sharla Lovelace has written another charming, small town romance that’s fun, romantic, and well, charming. You can’t go wrong adding A Charmed Little Lie to your TBR.
