LAGUNA SIGHTS Synopsis:

Is the price of fame the chance at true love?

Scott Cassidy has lived a blessed life. Growing up in Laguna Beach with a loving family, he was discovered in high school when he appeared on the popular reality TV show, Laguna Nights. Now cast as a doctor on the number one soap opera, his star keeps rising. Finally free from his long-term girlfriend, Scott isn’t looking for love, but when a popular dating app matches him with Jamie Kane, he can’t deny the sparks. But is she really everything she seems?

Jamie Kane isn’t lucky in love or life. Her childhood was tumultuous with a single mom who moved to Hollywood for fame but ended up waiting tables in Malibu. Certainly not one of the spoiled kids she went to high school and college with, Jamie has worked hard to achieve her dreams of being an actress, even as she begins to realize it’s not her calling. Jamie believes Scott may be the answer to everything unless a past mistake makes him doubt their future together.

Once you become a star, can you trust other people’s intentions?

SPECIAL: EXCERPT FROM LAGUNA LIGHTS

She’d made it into town in record time, unfortunately. It was almost eleven and she only had a few miles to go to reach her parents’ home in South Laguna, but that didn’t make sitting in this bottleneck any less frustrating. She knew the locals blamed Laguna Nights for the fact their tiny town was now a top tourist destination. Laura wasn’t sure she agreed, but at the moment, she didn’t care what it was that helped all these people discover her town. She just wished they’d all leave.

Up ahead, the light turned green again. Finally, the car in front of her crawled forward. Laura pulled Tucker back into her lap and smiled at the feeling of forward motion. She cruised by Main Beach and had just passed Tommy Bahama on her left when she felt her body shoved back against the seat. Her head whipped forward, nearly hitting the steering wheel. Her arms flew out from her sides and she felt Tucker rise up off her lap. She screamed when she felt another jolt, and her head again whipped towards the steering wheel as the impact of the car behind her pushed her car into the one in front of her.

The impact wasn’t strong enough for the airbags to deploy, Laura thought in shock, realizing what could have happened to Tucker if they had. She cradled him in her arms and struggled to open the car door.

“Are you alright?” asked an absolutely gorgeous man who appeared by the side of her car. She wondered where he’d come from. She hadn’t been sitting here that long, had she? She couldn’t speak. All she could do was stare at him. He had dark, soulful eyes, eyes that were currently focused on her with a worried look in them. As she continued to stare at him, he reached his arms out to her, muscular arms sprinkled with thick dark hair. “Here, let me help you.”

He pulled her car door open further as the sound of sirens pierced the air. The man put his arm around her waist and practically lifted her out of the car. His touch felt so private, almost intimate. Before she could process what was happening, he escorted Laura and Tucker to the sidewalk.

“Are you hurt?” he asked, letting go of her waist. She was surprised at the disappointment she found in that. She didn’t know this man, but had taken comfort in his strong arm as he escorted her across the street. She missed that comfort now that he’d let go of her. And if she were honest with herself, she’d enjoyed the feel of his hand on her side. When he had touched her, a zing of instant attraction had replaced the panic of the accident. “I’m Paul Dorn, by the way.”
