Nobody's Damsel by E.M. Tippetts



Chloe has finished her masters degree and taken a job as a forensic scientist back in her home town of Albuquerque, New Mexico, only the press will not leave her alone. They follow her to crime scenes and report on her every move, eager to show that her marriage to Hollywood A-lister, Jason Vanderholt, is on the brink of collapse. Millions of fans who dream of their own celebrity romance with him want this more than anything. This scrutiny comes at a particularly bad time as Chloe's first case is a crime against a child roughly the same age that Chloe was when she survived a homicide attempt.

Now that she sees the case from an adult's perspective, she realizes it's much harder than she ever dreamed. It's even worse for Jason, who is two steps removed from the crime. He must watch and try to support his wife as she battles with past demons and tries to keep up with a nameless suspect who evades identification and capture. Never has Jason been more frustrated with his job, its frivolities, and its lack of connection to the real world. When he storms off the set of his latest movie, the press goes wild with conjecture. Perhaps he never was anything more than a pretty face after all.

Together, Chloe and Jason must find their way past all the popping flashbulbs and through the dark maze of the criminal investigation to discover whether they can balance their professional goals with the demands of a celebrity marriage. The odds are entirely against them.

  2. Sounds like a really interesting story, usually it is about the start of a hollywood romance so it is different to see a story about making a hollywood marriage work. I look forward to the tour

    1. My thoughts exactly. Seemed like a fun thing to base a series on!

  5. I hvae seen many great reviews for this Nobody's Damsel so far. And I believe I saw Emily at one of my most frequented blogs with a wonderful interview so I have been looking forward to reading it. Will there be a book 3 in the series?

    1. Yep. The next book I'm writing, though, is a spinoff novel from Kyra's point of view, and then I'll write book three. It's an open ended series, so I'll keep writing Jason and Chloe stories for as long as people want to read them!

  6. I think it would be very difficult to hold down a "normal" job and try to stay out of the limelight if you were married to a Hollywood hunk. That might give an opportunity for a lot of Jason & Chloe stories, as you've mentioned.

  7. The story looks great and the cover looks AWESOME!!! The premise that she survives an attempted murder and is married to a movie star intrigues me about the character. Sounds like her life is a roller coaster out of her control. Boy,do I feel that way some days, lol.

  11. The blurb for this book seems great. Personally, I think that what sets this book apart from the others is the cover and the title. They are both great!

    1. Thanks! For once I'm responsible for both - though I often rely on others for help in that department!

  12. I was happy to see there was a Book 2....I read book 1 Someone Else's Fariytale and really liked it but I didn't realize there was a 2nd book....and now there may be more....great news...

    1. Yep! Though the next book I'm writing is from Kyra's POV. It's a spinoff, so it stands alone, though you'll recognize a few scenes if you read the Fairytale books.

  13. I'm interested in seeing how Jason is going to deal with all this. The blurb sounds wonderful. I see lots of tense and interesting moments between them.

  14. I think the whole paparazzi thing is scary and distasteful.

    1. Yeah, I never saw the appeal of fame. Fortunately, I think I'm pretty safe from it ;-) Thanks for stopping by!
