Dear Ripped Bodice Community,
We want to make sure we are keeping you updated on how we are handling this crisis. It’s been a very challenging time but we are hanging in there.
The shop remains closed to all customers with no events on the calendar.
We are still accepting online orders and have adopted a process to best comply with the evolving guidelines from California and LA County Departments of Health.
This means that Leah is processing all incoming orders and our staff has been instructed to stay at home. Because this is now a one-woman operation, shipping may be slower than normal. We love and appreciate your support in this incredibly difficult time, so we ask that you bear with us as we continue to fill orders. Given the state of the world and The Post Office, we are strongly recommending that you use USPS flat rate shipping at this time to ensure the quickest and most accurate delivery.
We are now accepting new orders for care packages. However, because we are down to a shipping staff of one, we will be accepting orders in batches so as not to overwhelm Leah. Head to this link to enter your email address, and we’ll send you the order link once it’s your turn.
Questions about orders (or anything) can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, now is a great time to think about becoming a Patron of the store.
There is already a ton of cool content you can check out on our page. Including 12 original short stories from some amazing romance authors. Vlogs and other fun stuff. We know this is not an option for everyone and that's totally okay and understandable. But if you're looking for a way to help, this is a great option.
We hope you are all doing okay and making it through one day at a time.
xoxo, Bea & Leah and Fitz
The Wedding Party (Large Print / Library Binding)
August 2019 Indie Next List
“Maddie hates Theo’s snooty attitude. Theo hates Maddie’s snide comments. Alexa is their best friend, and they’re both in her wedding party. Neither knows how they’re going to deal with each other’s presence in the months to come, but as things might, their resentment turns to lust, and possibly something more. There’s one main rule: Alexa must never find out about their secret trysts. Playful, sexy, and sweet, The Wedding Party is another romantic bullseye hit from Guillory.”

Winter 2019 Reading Group Indie Next List
“The world Jasmine Guillory has created is full of the charm and winning coincidences of any good story, yet grounded by the everyday obstacles and failings we all relate to. Theo and Maddie, who share a mutual friend, Alexa, and little else, find themselves entangled in what begins as physical attraction, but quickly becomes something more. Unfortunately, egos, insecurities, and the sheer inability to know what you want, let alone ask for it clearly, conspire to keep these two opposites from attracting. Luckily, their friends and their feelings keep them from ruining a good thing.”
— Lillian Li, Literati Bookstore, Ann Arbor, MI
Maddie and Theo have two things in common: 1. Alexa is their best friend. 2. They hate each other.
