Alice Bello (alicebelloromance) | 4 comments Dear Romance Lovers,

My New Adult Romantic Comedy novella, Hope Breaks, will be released on June 24th2013 on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords. It is 35,000 words long, and the first of a trilogy: Hope Breaks, Hope Entangles and Hope Rises.

It was edited by Stephanie Lott (aka Bibliophile) and
I’m working on the sequel as I type.

I would love if you all would accept some free copies to read, lend or review.

Spread the word.

Here’s the Smashwords link.

And the free coupon:


This coupon expires June 29th 2013

You can also email me at and I'll send you a mobi, epub or pdf copy.

Here’s the synopsis:

Hope Jones has two problems: one is new, the other is depressingly old.

The new problem: the bestselling author the publisher she shoots romance novel covers for hates her newest batch of covers. She has until the end of the week to come up with a breathtaking shot or she’ll be replaced. And there’s a sudden model shortage; they’re out of season.

The old, depressing problem: she hasn’t had a date, sex or a relationship in over two years.

She also has one hell of a headache.

Hope finds the cures for her two problems during a search through Wal-Mart for a painkiller to kill her headache.

Turns out the aisles of the retail giant are rampant with hot young model worthy specimens. And when her trusty Ford Taurus breaks down in the parking lot, a hunky mechanic in the Tire and Lube Express department fixes more than just her car.

Seemingly her troubles are good as gone…but then her new, fabulous cover is rejected, and in a desperate moment she has to choose between keeping her job and keeping the man she’s just starting to fall in love with.

Thank you greatly for your time,

Alice Bello

Typo. So sorry. Earlier in the process I thought was a real thing too.

I'm so glad you liked it, and I'm writing the next one now. It will have a new love interest/antagonist, the darkness (the bad guy) from her past will show up, and Bette and Hope will teach Darla to drive.

It should be fun.
