Gorgeous, charming, and funny, Vaughn Corbett rose far above
his less than optimal beginning to become a household name. Known for being a
dynamic and unflappable interviewer, no one was more surprised than he when he
got tongue-tied over a gorgeous blonde in the middle of a live interview.
Allie Henderson was so focused on her career that she rarely
thought about men or dating. That all changed when she came across a
silver-tongued devil on the red carpet. The moment his deep blue eyes met hers,
something inside her shifted.
Allie was there to support her best friend. Vaughn was just
doing his job. Neither of them expected the instant, magnetic attraction that
couldn’t be denied.
Would a surprise that neither of them planned on end things
before they really began?

The second I saw the
sexy as fuck blonde in the green dress, everything shifted. When our eyes met,
I was poleaxed. An intensely possessive feeling roared to life inside me. The
need to touch and claim her was so extreme that I struggled not to drop my mic
and go right to her.
I was known for
being a dynamic and unflappable interviewer, yet for the first time in my
career, I fumbled for words and struggled for coherence. This was due to the
fact that the only thing I cared about was her. Only when I realized that my
segment producer had been frantically waving at me from his spot next to the
stationary camera did I remember that I had a job to do.
Forcing myself into
host mode, I somehow went about interviewing the group of people the girl in
the green dress was walking with. I knew who each one of them was, but her name
was a mystery because she stood off to the side, and it wasn’t like I could
call her over.
The rules on the red
carpet were simple and definitive. Talk to the talent and keep it moving.
Assistants, friends, and family members didn’t get a lot of play, even if they
were as sexy as the goddess in the green dress. It frustrated me not to know
her name, but I comforted myself with the knowledge that it would only be a
matter of time before I solved that mystery.
After I wrapped up
my pre-show hosting duties, something that took far longer than one would
imagine, I headed into the Dolby Theatre. I was seated with one of my good
friends, Liam Hall. He wasn’t nominated but was presenting, so he was in a
chill mood. Typically, we’d have shot the shit and pressed the flesh with the
people around us, but I was so busy staring at the girl in the green dress that
I didn’t have it in me to do much more than phone it in. I was smart enough to
train my eyes mostly on the stage when the cameras were rolling, but every time
the host threw to commercial, my attention went right back to her. I hated that
she was seated so damn far away in another section.
were known for being ridiculously long and what was scheduled as a three-hour
broadcast always went over. Sometimes by seventeen minutes, and sometimes by
eighty. I’d never hated the length more than I did then. I silently willed the
damn show to come in on time for once, but naturally, that didn’t happen. The fucking
thing dragged on longer than War and Peace.
During one of the
commercial breaks, Liam leaned over and muttered, “What’s the deal with the
sexy chick in the green dress you’re busy eye-stalking?”
While it was true
that I was ogling her—clearly not as covertly as I’d hoped—hearing Liam refer
to her as sexy set my teeth on edge. That I had any kind of reaction to his
question was unusual. I’d had a similar response when I’d seen Dane Garrison
take her arm earlier. The only thing that calmed me down about that was the
certainty that Dane wasn’t dating her. I knew this because Dane and I were
tight. The only girls in his life on the regular were his mom, Gloria Garrison,
and his daughter, Maggie. Thank fuck I’d remembered that before I made a fool
of myself by telling him to get his goddamn hands off the blonde. I’d never
felt territorial about anyone before, but there was no denying that I
wanted—needed—her to be mine. That brought me back to Liam, who needed to know
that the goddess in green was majorly off-limits.
“Call her sexy
again, and we’re going to have a problem,” I grumbled, speaking low enough so
only he could hear me.
Sitting back, Liam
raised his brows and gave me an “are you serious” look. I dipped my head to
acknowledge that yeah, I sure as fuck was. Unbothered by his obvious amusement
about what was going on with me, I turned my attention back to the woman in

Bestselling Author Ella Fox has learned a bunch of stuff along the way but the most important of all
those things is that anything is possible when you try. In 2012 she took a big
leap of faith and published her first book, Broken Hart. Since then she’s
written fifteen more full-length books and several novellas– and every one is a
reminder that you can live your dream as long as you work for it.

up, her friends used to tease her when she would trail after them, trying to
read and walk at the same time. If she has downtime, odds are you
will find her reading or writing.
She is the mother
