You know what they say about wishing for the impossible.
My name is Talia Perizkova, and time is usually my best friend. It’s been good to me in the months since I left the man who nearly wrecked me and I’ve returned the favor by working hard at Stone Global Corp, now getting promoted to lead one of SGC’s key expansion projects.
There’s only one mar on that record. The night I told time to kiss my ass, during a business trip to Vegas with my bosses—yes, my bosses—and experienced a night for the record books with them both. But what happened in the City of Sin refuses to stay there for any of us and time has joined forces with his pal, karma, to exact payback—from the depths of my heart.
Fletcher Ford. Drake Newland. They’re two of the business world’s sexiest, most sought-after bachelors and I’ve fallen for them both. Their passion is everything I crave, their protection is everything I need—and their love is everything my orthodox family will never let me accept.
The solution, according to them, is simple. One man steps down so two of us are happy.
I could find a way...
But sacrifices are rarely simple and one plus one doesn’t always equal happily ever after. That means the three of us have to decide—take a chance on this rare love we’ve discovered...or give in to fear and lose each other forever?
USA Today bestselling romance author Angel Payne has been reading and writing her entire life, though her love for romances began in junior high, when writing with friends on “swap stories” they’d trade between classes. Needless to say, those stories involved lots of angst, groping, drama, and French kissing.
She began getting a paycheck for her writing in her twenties, writing record reviews for a Beverly Hills-based dance music magazine. Some years, various entertainment industry gigs, and a number of years in the hospitality industry later, Angel returned to the thing she loves the most: creating character-based romantic fiction. Along the way, she also graduated with two degrees from Chapman University in Southern California, taking departmental honors for English, before writing five historical romances for Kensington and Bantam/Doubleday/Dell.
Angel found a true home in writing contemporary-based romances that feature high heat and high concepts, focusing on memorable alpha men and the women who tame them. She has numerous book series to her credit, including the Secrets of Stone series (with Victoria Blue).
Angel still lives in Southern California, where she is married to her soulmate and lives on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with their awesome daughter and Lady Claire, the dog with impeccable manners. When not writing, she enjoys reading, pop culture, alt rock, cute shoes, enjoying the outdoors, and being a gym rat.
Victoria Blue lives in her own portion of the galaxy known as Southern California. There she finds the love and life sustaining power of one amazing sun, two unique and awe inspiring planets and three indifferent, yet comforting moons. Life is fantastic and challenging and everyday brings new adventures to be discovered. She looks forward to seeing what's next!
