Lacey has dreamed of opening a restaurant for years – but first, she needs a loan. When Garrett Halifax, her roommate’s Harvard-educated brother, offers to help her clean up her appearance and manner to impress the bank manager, she jumps at the chance. She makes mistake after mistake, and perhaps the biggest mistake is falling for sexy Garret.
 
This modern retelling of My Fair Lady offers all the humor of the original movie with a splash of romance thrown in.
 
 
Jojo Halifax, Lacey’s roommate, believes that winning Echo Ridge’s float competition is just what her fledgling art career needs. And if that means giving her ex-boyfriend, Anthony, a second chance so she can be a designer on his team, well, she’s willing to make the sacrifice. But when a lost bet leads to a blind date with her brother’s friend, Wyatt, she begins to have second thoughts about second chances. Wyatt is handsome and charming and just might have been paid to make her forget about Anthony. Is falling for his charm worth the risk or should she take Anthony back again?

Janette Rallison is old. Don’t ask how old, because it isn’t polite. Let’s just say she’s older than she’d like to be and leave it at that.
Janette lives in Chandler, Arizona with her husband, five children and enough cats to classify her as “an eccentric cat lady.” She did not do this on purpose. (The cats, that is; she had the children on purpose.) Every single one of the felines showed up on its own and refuses to leave. Not even the family’s fearless little Westie dog can drive them off.
Since Janette has five children and deadlines to write books, she doesn’t have much time left over for hobbies. But since this is the internet and you can’t actually check up to see if anything on this site is true, let’s just say she enjoys dancing, scuba diving, horse back riding and long talks with Orlando Bloom. (Well, I never said he answers back.)

Top Ten List

Since My Fair Lacey is based on My Fair Lady, I thought I’d do a top ten list of must-see movies with romance. (My Fair Lady won’t make the list because it didn’t have a satisfying romance–thus the need for me to rewrite it in novella form with a hot scholarly guy)

 

1) Princess Bride

2 Pride and Prejudice (BBC version)

3) While You Were Sleeping

4) Ever After

5) Just Like Heaven

6) The Illusionist

7 Groundhog Day

8) Emma

9) The Greatest Showman

10) Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (I know Adam’s a jerk at the beginning but he compensates for it by singing well. Plus the brothers are adorable. If there was a way to do a retelling without it coming off as creepy and Stockholm Syndrome-ish, I would totally do it.)

Snippets

 From A Perfect Fit

We passed an Italian place and a Chinese one on the way here. What do you feel like?”

She looked upward for a moment, then returned her gaze to his. “Being reckless. What do you feel like?”

“I’ve never eaten reckless.”

“There’s always a first time.”

***

He didn’t move away. But he also didn’t lean down and kiss her. He was watching her, weighing her. Deciding. “I didn’t expect you to be this forward. Your brother told me you were the innocent sort.”

“I am the innocent sort.” She had never thrown herself at a guy before, never been this bold. “I’m only being forward because I’m never going to see you again after this weekend. And suddenly being reserved seems like wasting an opportunity.”

“Oh,” he said. “I’m a revenge fling.”

“You make that sound like a bad thing.”
