What to expect

A fake date … a real secret

An invitation to her ex’s wedding is just the icing on a crappy cake for burlesque dancer Yolande. Her ex ghosted her just as they were about to take the stage for their neo-burlesque act. Yolande’s friends at Seraph’s Burlesque Club convince her that attending the wedding will show her ex that she’s moved on. Only one problem – she just needs a date.

Shy bartender Reiko has a secret, or two. She can’t risk anyone discovering that her life as a penniless PhD student and bartender is a sham. And even though she’s been in love with Yolande forever, when Yolande needs a plus-one to save face at her the wedding, Reiko knows any fantasy of romance is just that – a fantasy. Yolande will never notice the way Reiko looks at her.

When the drama of the wedding reveals a spark of attraction between them, Reiko will have to risk her fake identity for the chance at true love.

‘Show Up’ is the first installment in the “Seraph’s Burlesque Club” – a series of lesbian romances set in a London burlesque club.
