About the Book

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. . . . Will true love help a shy young woman find the beauty in herself?

Sailor Kern led a sheltered childhood and never learned to appreciate her own worth and beauty. When she isn’t teaching swimming and water aerobics classes at the YMCA, she finds romance vicariously in the pages of novels. Now she has a chance to meet her favorite romance writer in person and needs to improve her image fast!

Hairstylist Parker Travis makes his living helping women feel beautiful, inside and out, but his business and volunteer work keeps him too busy to pursue romance for himself . . . until shoulder pain lands him in a water aerobics class and he falls hopelessly in love with his instructor! But can he compete with the dashing romance writer of her dreams?
