Editorial Reviews


"Renowned London actor Richard Troy's reputation has taken a beating. Given Richard's stoic, icy, some might even say rude demeanour, combined with rumors of his temper and rich-boy status, the British tabloids are having a field day that only his stage presence can repel. Even his talents can't stop the gossip, and when his agent suggests a solution to his sullied reputation--a fake relationship with the theater world's sweetheart Lainie Graham--Richard reluctantly agrees. Lainie wants no part of this ploy and certainly no extra time with ornery Richard Troy, but then she's offered a deal she can't resist, and they'll both be in for the most difficult roles of their careers--acting like they're in love. Yet when real affection and a fragile closeness grow, Lainie and Richard understand a grain of truth in their ruse and must decide whether their tempestuous love is worth the fight... Well written, with very human characters and an entertaining plot, this debut novel is highly recommended for romance lovers who enjoy gratifying, hilarious stories... - Library Journal.
"ACT LIKE IT combines some of my favorite elements in a chick-lit novel: sharp, relevant humor, celebrity gossip and a couple of complex characters that grow into a relationship instead of sharing insta-love... I absolutely adored the biting and sometimes snarky humor; it was both relevant and hysterical... Bottom Line: Funny, sexy and plain ole' terrific chick-lit read!" - The Romance Reviews

About the Author

Lucy Parker lives in the gorgeous Central Otago region of New Zealand, where she feels lucky every day to look out at mountains, lakes, and vineyards. She has a degree in Art History, loves museums and art galleries, and doodles unrecognizable flowers when she has writer's block.  

When she's not writing, working or sleeping, she happily tackles the towering pile of to-be-read books that never gets any smaller. Thankfully, there's always another story waiting. 

Her interest in romantic fiction began with a pre-teen viewing of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice (Firth-style), which prompted her to read the book as well. A family friend introduced her to Georgette Heyer, and the rest was history.

You can find her on Twitter @_LucyParker, or on her website:
