I've written three single-title romantic comedies, all with a primary romance and a secondary romance (like Wade and Lorelei's). The other two books are Bait & Switch and The Misconception. The secondary heroes in those books are perhaps a bit more alpha than Wade, but I think they're also fun. Thanks for the question!(less)
