*Meghan Markle’s mom is the subject of a new romance novel from author Jasmine Guillory, best known for “The Proposal” and “The Wedding Date.”

Guillory shared the news on Twitter and noted that she found inspiration for the story after one of her friend’s, librarian Margaret H. Willison, hit up social media asking followers to come up with a love story for Doria Ragland since she’s single, Vulture reports.
