Connor Knightly

Hollywood’s biggest star, and a product of Hollywood legends. 

Connor needed the right actress for his new movie. He didn’t want the hottest or most popular actress, he wanted the perfect one and Judith was the perfect woman for the role. This movie was his baby and Judith was his star. He just needs to remember to keep his hands off of her. He didn’t want another relationship in the spotlight.

Judith Roux

The product of two people who needed to divorce. 

Judith was ready to throw her towel in for her Hollywood dreams but not without a last hurrah. She took a chance and it paid off. She, Judith Roux, a relatively unknown actress, daughter of a porn film maker, and stepping stool for A-list celebrities was going to star in a movie with The Connor Knightly. She wasn’t just going to star in the movie with him; she was going to be the star.

Love in the Spotlight is a fast-paced beach read by author Sophia Peony.  This short story is light, steamy, and entertaining.   I enjoyed the characters, especially Judith.  She is an actress who is continually typecasted as the supporting actress.  Tired of not being taken seriously by her manager, Judith auditions for the leading female role in an upcoming movie, ‘With Love, War’.  Connor is the leading man as well as the writer of the script.  He has put a lot into this movie and wants the right person for the leading lady, not necessarily the most popular.  Even though it was a hard sell, he wanted Judith.

This story was well written, but I found it choppy in certain places.  With the quick pace of the book, I felt as though the romance was a little rushed.  I wish the book was expanded so I could read more about Connor and Judith’s relationship.  I just wasn’t ready for the story to end.

“You’re here!” Connor slurred.
“He’s drunk,” Noah explained.
As if she couldn’t tell?
“No kidding. Why are you all here?” Judith clarified.
“Ah, well, Connor here is drunk as shit, and he wanted to see you,” Sam answered with a grin.
“He’s drunk,” Judith stated the obvious.
“Yep,” Sam replied.
“He wouldn’t have known if you took him home and put him to bed,” Judith tried explaining.
“Yeah, but he really wanted to come here.” Sam grinned again. She wanted to smack that grin off his face.
“He really, really wanted to come here. He got so upset when we took him to Sam’s place because he wanted us to bring him here,” Noah added.
“So upset that he was throwing a tantrum.”
Judith wasn’t sure she believed them, but Connor reached for her at that moment. He pulled her close, wrapped his hands around her waist as he rested his face against her stomach.



In 6th grade I wanted to be a singer. In high school I wanted to be a lawyer, an astronaut and then a house wife when I thought I was going to marry my high school sweetheart. Then I wanted to be a pilot but found out I was too short to fly. So, I decided to become a photographer. When that didn’t work out, I decided to be a writer.
