We all know and love the classic meet-cute, but letâ€™s be
honest. Sometimes things completely go to hell. So what happens when the first meeting
between hero and heroine isnâ€™t so much cute as a total mess? What about the meet-disaster?
In Wrong Bed, Right Girl, Special
Agent Reed Bishop is pursuing a lead on a case when he heads to the apartment of the woman
he thinks is his informant. Only it turns out sheâ€™s skipped town and sublet her apartment to
none other than our heroine, whoâ€™s curled up in bed sleeping as peacefully as can be. That is,
until a giant slab of man muscle stubs his toe on her suitcase and comes crashing down on
her in the dark.
So, yeah. The first words our heroine says (er, shouts) to the
hero involve a few choice words I canâ€™t publish here, and a threat to stab him inâ€¦a sensitive
area. The stuff of great romantic memories, right? They might have to leave out some of the
details when theyâ€™re reminiscing to their kids about how they met.
And yet, it really is the start of something special. Talia, a
ballet dancer prepping for a make-or-break role, winds up living with Reed in his one-bedroom
apartment until his case gets sorted out. These two stubborn, opinionated workaholics are as
different as can be. But through all their argumentsâ€”and their laughter, teasing, flirting, and
moreâ€”they manage to surprise themselves by falling in love.
I wanted to write a series about wrong bed mix-ups because
I wanted to write about love that comes from unexpected places at unexpected times. Real life
isnâ€™t the stuff of rom-coms, I know. But I donâ€™t think itâ€™s so completely farfetched to believe
that our most meaningful relationships can grow from unlikely beginnings.
Itâ€™s not like husband and I had any magical meet cute. We
were at a meeting the first day of a new teaching job Iâ€™d started. Talk about boring. Because I
apparently live under a rock, I had no clue that when he later suggested we meet up at a
bookstore some time, that was supposed to be this thing called a d-a-t-e. (But can we pause
for a moment on bookstore for a first date? Good thing I eventually opened my eyeballs and
There was no way I could have known our first eight-hour
marathon non-date was the start of a conversation about books and writing and life that weâ€™re
still having ten years later. Writing about mix-ups and mistakes gives me hope that for the rest
of usâ€”those of us more likely to spill coffee on our future spouses than sweep them off their
feet with the perfect one-linerâ€”things really can work out. We donâ€™t have to be charming or
smooth. We donâ€™t even have to have showered. We can just beâ€¦ourselves. Even if itâ€™s
sometimes a disaster.

Accidental Love Book 2
Falling head-first into the wrong womanâ€™s bed was not how Reed Bishopâ€™s night was supposed
to go. Now a gorgeous, half-naked ballet dancer was threatening his manhoodâ€¦with a book.
He canâ€™t blame her. It wasnâ€™t how it seemedâ€”he was just doing his job, tracking down his lead
informant, who, unfortunately, took off, leaving him to figure out what to do with her friend.
Staying in her apartment was no longer safe. And thatâ€™s how he got himself into this mess.
Now sheâ€™s sleeping in his bed while he tosses and turns on the couch. There are pink tights in
his bathroom. Pointe shoes next to his boots. He swears he wonâ€™t touch her like thatâ€¦but he
canâ€™t ignore his fantasies.
As a tattooed, muscled DEA Agent, Reedâ€™s seen some things. Drug dealers, murderersâ€¦He
canâ€™t let Talia get close. Even though sheâ€™s made it clear theyâ€™re both fighting the same
hunger. And he definitely canâ€™t use his handcuffs on herâ€¦no matter how much she begs.
