Noah Blake, graduated with an MBA from Columbia and is the CEO of the family owned Double Shot bar conglomerate. He was born and raised in Manhattan and has that sexy NY accent. But he’s also known as The Patron Saint of Assholes if you listen to his best friend’s little sister and arch nemesis, Ashlyn. Noah is 6 ‘1 or thereabouts, dark hair, dark eyes and has a killer derrière. His loyalty to his best friend is admirable and he never breaks a promise, especially if it means always looking out for said friend’s baby sis.
Ashlyn Carter, up-and-coming playwright with a lot to prove, not only to herself, but her father who’s on the brink of taking her inheritance away if she can’t prove she can support herself as a writer. She was born and raised in the Dallas ‘burbs, is 5’7, red hair, blue eyes and resents Noah’s constant meddling in her life. She’s in for the shock of her life when she discovers her arch enemy is the key to unlocking her writers block and saving The Marshall Theater from bankruptcy.
Noah’s widowed step-mother and the one constant, steadying force in his life. She’s also a mother-figure to Ashlyn. Babs is rough around the edges, wears too much make up and speaks in a very abrupt manner. She’s dark haired and dark eyed. Though the pic of Melissa Leo above is blonde and not black, this is exactly how I see her.
Ashlyn’s devil-may-care brother and Noah’s BFF. He’s a techie genius who lives in Seattle and has patented a line of surveillance equipment.
Sassy costume designer for The Marshall Theater and Ashlyn’s best friend, this girl says exactly what’s on her mind.
Owner and director of The Marshall Theater. Does Jeff Bridges not look like the perfect eclectic regional Texas theater owner? He looks a little bit crazy but also sensitive—the perfect combination to elevate a young playwright to do her best work. All he’s missing here is the Lucas Marshall signature bolo tie.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing the characters of with me. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Growing up the youngest child of a freakishly large family in a small Midwestern town means she never lacks for ideas, inspiration, or moral dilemmas. Being the wife of a corporate attorney, mother of two young children, and living in a Dallas suburb provides unlimited insight into the rest.
In her spare time, Tracy is a chauffeur, a maid, a short-order cook, a coach, a psychic/intuitive who always finds what her husband loses, a yoga nut, a mango margarita connoisseur, and a really bad dancer. She’s currently contracted through Entangled Publishing’s Indulgence imprint.

Writing three plays for a nationally acclaimed theater in Phair, Texas, wasn’t supposed to put my inheritance at risk and force me into constant contact with Noah Blake--the very guy I love to hate. But with one chance to prove to my controlling father that I can succeed as a playwright, I’ve developed a major case of writer’s block.
Cue Noah, my older brother’s best friend and the guy I’ve avoided since my crush-gone-bad days. And now my director thinks he’s the key to unleashing my creativity. He thinks Noah is my muse.
Discovering the fate of the theater is also in my hands, I have no choice but to collaborate with my worst enemy. But it’s more than just a great scene Noah inspires. Now everything I thought I wanted is put to the test. And the guy I swore I was over still has a hold on my heart.
