On May 27, the Hallmark Channel movie All for Love will debut at 9 PM.

After a string of successes, romance novelist Jo Parker (Sara Rue from Less Than Perfect and Popular) is worried that she’s lost her Cupid’s touch. She herself has sworn off relationships, her sales are down and her last book was a critical and commercial disaster replete with factual errors. Jo is badly in need of a success and her publisher isn’t happy with her first draft of “SEALed with a Kiss,” featuring a hunky Navy Seal hero. With her career in balance, Jo unenthusiastically commits herself to an immersive research course with an openly skeptical retired Seal, Colin Shaw (Steve Bacic from When Calls the Heart), who runs a military-style boot camp. As Jo embarks on the grueling regimen alongside aspiring Seals and Marines, she discovers capabilities she didn’t know she had and contributes to her team in ways no one expected. From their rocky beginnings, writer and sailor develop a mutual respect and perhaps something more — but can art really imitate life?
