He was the boss. He was my best friend.
And I fell in love.
Annalise Owings has fallen in love with her boss, Evan Andrews, editor of a small-press publishing company. What's worse, Evan is clueless about her affections. After nearly two years of working together, suffering through late-night meetings and embarrassing work snafus, Annalise decides she can't bear Evan's disregard for her obvious feelings anymore. Staying in the friend zone is just too painful.
Ignoring her anguish, Annalise submits her work in progress to Evan, hoping to fulfill her writing dreams. When she accepts her edits from him after another day of frustration, Annalise quits. But moving on from Evan won't be as easy as she thinks, not when she has a manuscript full of his edits.
If only Annalise isn't too heartbroken, she might find a few surprises written in the ink between the lines.

Four things define Todd Frikker's existence: the remote Frikker Island, vaguely referred to as an unmarked shipping hazard on a long expired nautical chart; the detestable Dick Frikker, the only other inhabitant on the island and the one person Todd had ever known; two locked rooms in Frikker Hall that have tested his curiosity from the age of reason and a mystery supply boat he has been prohibited from making contact with since birth.
Everything changes for Todd at the still tender age of thirty when Dick dies unexpectedly, allowing him free reign of Frikker Hall. Evidence of an outside world he has never known begins to emerge and Todd starts to unravel the secrets of his family and the events that led to his existence.
Dressed practically for comfort in a lady's crimson gown with lace trim, coupled with some 'chest pockets' for the transportation of useful objects and large codfish, the endearing, intelligent but extraordinarily naive young Todd embarks on a hilarious adventure ...

After all, how could she expect any man to put up with her painful caresses? However, to Alice's surprise, this handsome stranger persists and quick-steps her into a date... a date that begins to go horribly wrong.
As Alice heads towards a run of disasters, her colourful and unusual friends keep turning up to cut in and save her.
