#IShipIt with Diane Alberts


I’m Diane Alberts (also known as Jen McLaughlin) and I had a new book come out this week called An Accidental Date with a Billionaire. It’s the first in a new series of standalone books, and in case you didn’t guess it by the title, the heroine accidentally bids on the wrong bachelor after promising her best friend that she will “save” her brother from being bought by a woman he doesn’t know. The problem is, Sam has never actually met her best friend’s brother, and instead of saving him she accidentally ends up with a very expensive date with Taylor (our hot, wealthy hero).



In keeping with my ridiculously handsome and wealthy hero, I’m going to talk about something I’m shipping so hard right now—Lucifer and Chloe Decker on Lucifer.


Oh my word, guys, the devil is hot on this show…


…and so incredibly complex and charming.


My heroine in An Accidental Date with a Billionaire is totally shipping Jamie and Clair on Outlander right now because, I mean, how could she not?
Exhibit A:


Exhibit B:


Annnnd Exhibit C:


And I ship Sam and Taylor from An Accidental Date with a Billionaire because they bring out the best in one another, even in ways that they didn’t realize they had or needed. What’s not to ship about that?





Check out Diane’s newest release An Accidental Date with a Billionaire, out now!


Samantha Matthews turned her back on her wealthy family to focus on social work. Those who know her think she’s the heart of kindness. Those who know her really well know she’s in a never-ending battle to make up for the harm her family’s companies inflict on the world. Which is how she finds herself at a charity bachelor auction of all places.

But oops, she was supposed to bid on her bff’s brother as a favor and accidentally bid on the wrong guy. Sue her for not being able to tell one stick-in-the-mud CEO from another.

Backstage, she goes to tell him not to worry about having to go through with a date or anything, but the oafish billionaire cuts her off dismissively. Looks her up and down, hands her a card with his assistant’s contact details, and reminds her that sex is definitely off the table.

Oh, she’ll call the assistant all right and have her make sure he wears jeans and comfortable shoes and to pick her up at seven a.m. The only “hammering” this guy is going to be doing is at Habitat for Humanity.

Too bad he turns out to be nothing like she expected.
