About this ebook

Can he go from a temporary boyfriend to a permanent position...

The only girl in a family of three brothers, Tawny Torres has had enough of waiting on men. She has her life and her career all mapped out, and neither includes an apron, an iron, or a husband--yet. But when a new job emphasizes a healthy balance of work and play, she needs a guy to stand in as her love interest at a company picnic. Gorgeous charmer David "King of Pleasure" Farber fits the bill perfectly—so well that Tawny is shocked to realize she's having a hard time letting him go... 

David's a confirmed bachelor, but he can't get enough of Tawny's firecracker combination of tough and tender. Unfortunately, he's overloaded with work at his construction firm and now definitely isn't the time for distraction--he struggles enough with that already. Still, he can't ignore his feelings for Tawny. He'll just have to convince her that he's more than a boyfriend-for-hire. And she'll have to prove he can trust her with his biggest secret...

About the author

Gail currently lives in beautiful Connecticut, but originally hails from sunny California. She is the mom of three amazing kids, the wife of a 27-year Naval officer, and the rescuer of furbabies.

In her spare time (what little of it there is), she likes to ghost hunt with her hubby, geocache with her family, and lock herself away with a great book. Currently, she's attempting (keyword there) to learn to knit. Wish her luck, she'll need it. And, she's dreaming of the day when she can take her next trip. Where will it be? Only time will tell. Check her out on Instagram to see her words of wisdom, her travel destinations (past and future), what she's read, and maybe enjoy a chuckle or two:
