Tamara Lush Romance

Looking for romances written by Tamara Lush? HERE THEY ARE!

Here’s a secret: my real name is Tamara Lush — and I also write romance!

I have three contemporary romances published by W by Wattpad Books that cozy mystery readers might enjoy. They’re all medium heat rom-coms that have a similar voice as my mysteries. Here’s how you can read them:

DRIVE: Savannah “Savvy” Jenkins is no stranger to the crude comments and leering looks she gets in the pit. Out to prove that she can succeed in a man’s world, she thinks she knows what to expect when she joins Formula One world champion Dante Annunziata’s crew.

Dante is determined to finish his season on top. And Savvy is nothing but a distraction that threatens to get in the way. Convinced Savvy has no business on the team, Dante’s prepared to do anything to get her off.

But when a paparazzo catches the two in a compromising position, Dante and Savvy are in for a fauxmance for the ages. As their fake attraction turns real, they realize that there may be more to life than simply speeding through it. Available in Kindle Unlimited!


CRASH: Alex Jenkins has a reputation: he’s Atlanta’s most eligible bachelor, a former competitive motorcycle racer, and a man who isn’t afraid of a bit of a challenge. But when the off-limits marketing intern Evie Cooper catches his attention, self-control has a whole new meaning.

Both Alex and Evie attempt professionalism but their undeniable passion pushes them further to the edge. Between in-office outfit adjustments and late-night secretarial work, their close proximity is pure torture.

The suspense builds as Evie is reluctantly drawn into an engagement-for-show so Alex can secure his place as the company’s successor. His reputation as a bad boy is not exactly on brand and a serious commitment could prove to his family that he is mature enough to take over. With the engagement comes family drama and the ever-present eye of the matriarch, Alex’s steely and strong grandmother, Eleanor Dorothy Jenkins.

As Evie becomes immersed in the Jerkins clan, her humble origins come into stark contrast with the snobbery of the billionaire lifestyle. Awash in new-found lust and overwhelmed by a world of luxury, Evie struggles to decipher between what is a ruse and what is real.

Can Alex exchange his love for the chase for real love? Can Evie’s spunk and personality win over Alex’s family? Can their raw passion transform their fauxmance into a meaningful relationship? Available in Kindle Unlimited!


BURN (coming January 2024):  They say there are no second chances, and for Lily Onassis, ever since she walked away from Formula World driver Max Becker, she’s considered this true. Instead of a glitzy, glamorous life on the auto racing circuit, she’s worked at a tech company, trying to live a quiet life and forget about her feelings for the gorgeous Max.

Until she’s fired from her job, and her father – a popular racing team owner – has a heart attack. Before her father goes into surgery, he has one request for Lily: temporarily take over his racing team. It shouldn’t be a problem since she has management experience, except that Max is now a Team Onassis driver. And Lily is his new boss.

The two must fight their burning attraction to each other at every turn while the paparazzi lurk behind every corner – and confront the fact that their love might be bigger than their stupid decisions of the past.
