Desire and the Deep Blue Sea, the first book in my Love Unscripted series, is here!


They’re pretending. Until they aren’t.

Thomas McKinney has never wanted a woman the way he wants Callie Adesso. Since she started working alongside him at the Colonial Marysburg Research Library, he’s spent his desk shifts fumbling pencils, tripping over his own feet, and struggling to remember both the Dewey Decimal System and the existence of her inconvenient boyfriend. Now, however, Callie is suddenly single—and in need of a last-minute faux-boyfriend for an episode of HATV’s Island Match. Thomas is more than happy to play the part…and in the process, convince Callie that a week together isn’t nearly long enough.

Callie has never found a man as irritating as she finds Thomas. He may be brilliant, kind, and frustratingly handsome, but the absent-minded librarian also makes every workday an anxiety-inducing exercise in stress. Even seven days in paradise by his side won’t change her opinion of him. Really. No matter how attentive he is. And gentle. And sexy.

One plane ride later, the two of them are spending long, hot days under the sun and on display, pretending to be in love for a television show. This may be a vacation, but it’s also an act—as well as Thomas’s last chance to persuade the woman of his dreams to include him in hers. And soon, the island heat isn’t the only thing steaming up HATV’s cameras…

Image text: "What people are saying about Desire and the Deep Blue Sea: 'Desire and the Deep Blue Sea was a delight of a novella. I gobbled it up in one bite and have no regrets. The hero is a swoon-worthy, bumbling academic, all cautious restraint and patient devotion. The heroine is an anxious badass (yes, those qualities can and usually do coexist), not to mention incredibly relatable. This book is pure catnip. Enjoy.' —Talia Hibbert"

Teach Me, the first book in my There’s Something About Marysburg series, is also out now!

Cover of Teach Me by Olivia Dade. Includes a pretty, fat, brown-haired woman impeccably dressed in black with a reluctant half-smile on her face, a smiling, handsome-but-understated dark-haired man in a tie, and the tagline is "Even ice queens can melt." There's a banner noting it's a There's Something About Marysburg novel.

Their lesson plans didn’t include love. But that’s about to change…

When Martin Krause arrives at Rose Owens’s high school, she’s determined to remain chilly with her new colleague. Unfriendly? Maybe. Understandable? Yes, since a loathsome administrator gave Rose’s beloved world history classes to Martin, knowing it would hurt her.

But keeping her distance from a man as warm and kind as Martin will prove challenging, even for a stubborn, guarded ice queen. Especially when she begins to see him for what he truly is: a man who’s never been taught his own value. Martin could use a good teacher—and luckily, Rose is the best.

Rose has her own lessons—about trust, about vulnerability, about her past—to learn. And over the course of a single school year, the two of them will find out just how hot it can get when an ice queen melts.
