Meet Jasmine Guillory, a writer, lawyer and Oaklander who has earned enthusiastic praise for her recent novels The Wedding Date and The Proposal.

New York Times bestselling author Roxane Gay called The Wedding Date “a charming, warm, sexy gem of a novel.”

Entertainment Weekly gushed “Guillory writes with the fizzy effervescence of a glass of champagne, and the entire book goes down just as easily (and quickly). The Wedding Date starts out as a fling, but it makes us want a more long-term relationship with Guillory and her irresistible writing style.”

Kirkus Reviews called The Proposal “A charming book for the modern romance lover.”
