Sapphic Romance Week - Day 6
Sapphic Celebrity Romances

Welcome to day six of Sapphic Romance Week!

If you’re only joining us now, you can still enter the previous giveaways here.

Today, we turn the spotlight on celebrity romances.

Many celebrity romances are tales of love between a famous and an “ordinary” person, but some take a different approach, instead featuring a relationship between two stars. These novels are often set in the glamorous world of Hollywood, with the protagonist being an actress, but there are also main characters who are pop/rock stars, social media influencers, or famous athletes.

Within the pages of celebrity romances, the plot revolves around the challenges of navigating a relationship when one or both individuals are in the public eye.

Check out our 12 book prizes and then enter the giveaway at the bottom of the page!

When Hollywood comes to Scotland, for the filming of a new epic tale of highland romance, the boundaries between reality and fairytale become blurred.

Jennifer Michaels is an oscar winning American actress. At 53, she had led a full career but little is known about her personal life although that has never stopped the rumour factory.

When Jen arrives in the small village, Kat is handed an opportunity, to which she cannot say no. A simple “yes” sets in motion a series of events with an outcome, neither expected.


“So tell me, how did you end up getting roped in to be my tour guide for the duration of this assignment?” The way in which Jen asked made it clear she knew she was deliberately changing the subject.

“I know Kirsty, and she asked me if I’d do her a favour. Although it’s not really a favour as I’m getting paid for it and you don’t seem like hard work—yet.” Her response caused Jen to laugh again. God, she had a beautiful laugh. If I could just make her laugh all day, this could be the most rewarding job I’ve ever had.
