Lisette Pannebaker speaks five languages and has a brilliant business plan—personal language immersion. Clients can hire her to shadow them and speak all day in any language they need to learn for business or travel—whatever. But there’s a major hitch: she’s far too pretty. Clients with less than honorable intentions sign up just to have Lisette at their side. Solution? A make-under. Way under.

The bad wig, icky makeup and puffy sweaters work like a charm. None of her male clients show her the least bit of interest. Lisette’s totally relieved.


Erik Gunnarson is charming, kind, and smart—everything she’s ever looked for. Every day as his tutor is making her fall for him more. Even though he seems to have a secret, and she’s sworn she'd never date a client, Lisette is tempted to shed her disguise—although it could mean jeopardizing her career.


This quick read absolutely rocked! It was by far my favorite of all six novellas. The two main leads are intelligent, funny, strong yet vulnerable. With a cast of extraordinary supporting characters, it made for a fun bedtime read. I loved the idea behind the story and that it was completely different. I wished the ending could’ve been a little more drawn out, and not as rushed as it felt, but it came to a satisfying conclusion that left me smiling. I haven’t read any of this author’s works before, but I’m looking forward to reading more of her books!

Overall, I think this is a magnificent series of romance novellas which should satisfy and delight even the most critical romance junkie. Each novella flows smoothly into the next, and by the end of the last book, Immersed, it felt as though I’ve gotten to know and grow fond of a whole host of charming characters. Although this is a compilation of clean romance shorts, every one stands on its own and delivers a story which will be remembered long after finishing it. I’m not a fan of romance, but I enjoyed these six lighthearted reads, and highly recommend it. 



Jennifer is a wife and a mom of five weathering the chaos by writing escapist fiction. She was raised in Idaho on a farm and now lives with her family in rural Arizona. (There are scorpions.)

Jennifer has no plans to write the Great American Novel. She’d rather compose what someone would read on a rainy afternoon with a cup of cocoa, or sitting on a beach chair while the waves crash. Light, frothy, gone.

She lived for 1 1/2 years in Japan during college, during which she never, even once, sumo wrestled.
