High hopes mean big disappointments.
Nadia has learned that lesson the hard way. Single, struggling to make ends meet, and hurt by the past, the last thing she needs is another complication. When her new boss – a handsome, secretive widower with a child – moves in next door, their worlds collide. Sweet hopes bloom again, but both of them are burdened by tragic secrets.
Should she give love a second chance?
Almost as soon as Devika Fernando could write, she imagined stories and poems. After finishing her education in Germany and returning to her roots in Sri Lanka, she got a chance to turn her passion into her profession. Having lived in Germany and in Sri Lanka with her husband has made her experience the best (and the worst) of two totally different worlds – something that influences her writing. Her trademark is writing sweet, yet deeply emotional romance stories where the characters actually fall in love instead of merely falling in lust. What she loves most about being an author is the chance to create new worlds and send her protagonists on a journey full of ups and downs that will leave them changed. She draws inspiration from everyone and everything in life. Besides being a romance novel author, she works as a self-employed German web content writer, as a translator, and as a faithful servant to all the cats, dogs, fish and birds in her home. When she’s not writing, she’s reading or thinking about writing.
Protecting Dr. Stick-Up-Her-Rear isn't on Gavin McClintock bucket list. But a promise is a promise, and he’s ready to do whatever it takes to keep Sarabeth safe. When she sheds her librarian-in-mourning look in favor of a sexy new disguise, she shows Gavin the Sarabeth that’s been hiding beneath that shell of propriety, and soon it’s Gavin’s heart in danger.

Even though their time between the sheets is scorching hot, he refuses to take it beyond “ friends with benefits.” He’s learned the hard way that loving someone is the first step to destroying his heart, and he won’t risk losing the best person in his life by falling in love with her.
