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 email@example.com
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
Something Borrowed (Paperback)
Going to an eight-day tropical wedding sounds great, right? Wrong... Elle Sahlstrom hates weddings, but she promised her best friend Tory that she will attend her destination ceremony, despite having to endure obnoxious cousins, bad wine, and a phallus-laden bachelorette party. But the worst part is the man sitting next to her on the plane, on his way to the same wedding, guaranteed to be the same insufferable jerk he was years ago. Jackson Proveaux knows Elle hates him with a passion, but it's that same passion that has him convinced she's perfect for him... Unfortunately, he made mistakes in the past, involving cocktails, out of control minivans, and a giant misunderstanding that cost him his one and only shot with Elle. The French expatriate sees the wedding as a chance to atone for his sins. He offers to spend a week completely at Elle's mercy, and if she still hates him at the end, he'll leave her alone forever. A fiery temper, two sets of handcuffs, and copious amounts of tequila are guaranteed to make this situation complicated... Unable to resist a win-win deal-or Jackson-Elle agrees. Their arrangement quickly becomes more complicated than either of them could have anticipated. The grumpy environmentalist never thought the smooth talking playboy would be able to make her laugh, and he didn't count on the hot-headed beauty dominating him in the bedroom...or that he would actually like it. As the lovers become more entwined in each other's lives and hearts, one question remains-will their truce survive the wedding, or are they living on borrowed time?
