He’s fashion royalty.
She’s the queen of thrift.
Now their career hopes are pinned on each other…


Nothing could make Janelle Novak go back to the competitive world of New York fashion – except a threat to her store, Tailor Thrift. If she can win the first season of a new design reality show, she’ll be able to secure the loan she needs to save her business. But first, she needs to spend the next six weeks working with the pampered playboy she slept with – and walked out on – years ago.

Everything has come easily for Ashton Royce – except the career he wants. Relegated to the business side of Royce Fashions, he aches to do creative work. To prove he’s more than a gossip page headline, he jumps at the chance to participate in Seams Impossible only to discover his teammate is the headstrong one-night stand who disappeared without telling him her name.

Janelle knows Ash has what it takes for them to secure the prize, but he’s arrogant, brooding...and infuriatingly sexy. Ash hoped to work with a malleable designer so he could take the lead, but Janelle refuses to give up creative control. With the final showcase looming, can they stitch and make up?


Things are heating up in the newest stand-alone romance of the Fable Notch series where (retold) fairy tales come true in the mountains of New Hampshire. Featuring a forced proximity/workplace romance with as much quarreling as kissing, Can’t Let You Go is a story of undeniable passion – in and out of the bedroom – between two people who are going to have to redefine what it means to win.

About Elena


Elena Markem writes emotionally rich contemporary romances about dreams, love, and taking a chance on both. Her stories reflect her belief that life is about the passions we pursue, the people who support us along the way, and never giving up on what we want.


She can't start work without coffee, fall asleep without reading, or listen to Broadway musicals without singing along (badly). She loves time spend with her husband and sons as well as weekends with girlfriends, rom-com and old movies, and anything that sparkles. 

Feel free to join her on her ongoing quest for the perfect planner, the best diner breakfasts, and the gooiest chocolate chip cookie. In the meantime, she hopes you'll enjoy spending time in her sexy books where you’ll find strong heroines, heroes who find them irresistible, and at least one scene involving comfort food.
