How do you stay anchored when you’re attracted to your co-anchor?

– Coming Aug. 4, 2015 –

Barbara King’s dream is to become the next Barbara Walters.  But for now, she’s anchoring at the fledgling Phoenix news channel, covering car chases and interviewing drunken showbiz has-beens.  If she can just out-fox the conniving anchors at her cable channel and move up to its prime-time line-up, she’ll be able to fly the coop and ascend to a real news network.     

Enter Jack Stone, Barbara’s dynamic, witty—and did she mention sexy?—new co-anchor. Another potential competitor, Jack’s attitude is chilly toward Barbara at first, but it’s not long before a genuine friendship forms. Soon they find themselves finishing each other’s sentences, discovering all they have in common and, ultimately, attempting to ignore how wildly attracted they are to each other. Meanwhile, on the set, under television’s bright lights, they sit just inches apart, their chemistry even apparent to the quirky cast of characters in the gossiping newsroom. 

Will Barbara give in to her attraction to Jack and betray her husband, Ben, her sweet-souled moral compass? When a life-altering news event propels the Phoenix to the #1 news channel in the nation, will Barbara sell her soul to become a prime time star?   

How do you stay true to yourself when you’re being seduced by stardom—and your co-star?

Praise for ANCHORED

“A lighthearted read that takes you behind the scenes of a real newsroom revealing romance, true friendship, difficult bosses, and naked ambition, Anchored is a light read that will make you wonder about what’s really going on the next time you watch the news!”
Susie Schnall, author of On Grace and The Balance Project
“TV news generally arrives in your home as a polished presentation; you might not give much thought to how it got there. Brigitte Quinn takes you for a riotous ride behind the news set—the inflated egos, turf protectors, sycophants and self-promoters who join forces with the wise and earnest in building the newscasts that reveal the state of our world.”
Jon Scott, anchor of Fox News Channel’s “Happening Now”
“Breaking news: Brigitte Quinn’s charming debut is an intriguing look at ambition, commitment, and temptation straight from the anchor’s desk.”
Andee Reilly, author of Satisfaction
