Jo McNally lives in coastal North Carolina with 100 pounds of dog and 200 pounds of husband – her slice of the bed is very small. When she's not writing or reading romance novels (or clinging to the edge of the bed...), she can often be found on the back porch sipping wine with friends, listening to great music. If the weather is absolutely perfect, she'll occasionally join her husband on the golf course, where she always feels far more competitive than her actual skill-level would suggest.

A quirky artist, the lawyer who wants her to *finally* experience true pleasure, and the boardroom battle keeping them apart.
There are a couple of things you need to know about me.
First, my dad is a judge. That means he thinks he can control everyone. In my mother and my perfect sister’s case, that works. Newsflash: it doesn’t work on me. I went against my father’s wishes and got a union job instead of attending college.
Second, even though I have yellow or purple or blue hair and skimpy clothes, I hate sex. Every guy I’ve ever done it with has made it suck. I’m so over hooking up.
Stop it. Don’t feel sorry for me. I’m living my life as the artist I’ve always wanted to be. So you see I’ve got plenty of time for this puppy I rescued from traffic on the freeway. But I don’t have a single second to spare for the hot lawyer who helped me.
My mom cleaned the bathrooms of rich doctors and lawyers in Beverly Hills. Now she’s retired without so much as a pension. I put on a suit, go to my top floor office, and work twelve hours every day just to support her.
After watching my mother being ordered around all day, I don’t like rich girls. I especially don’t like rich girls who go up against me at work. So why is this poor little rich girl and her new dog getting under my skin?

He wants something else: me, for one year.
But I don’t even know who he is…
365 days and nights doing everything he wants…except that.
“I’m not going to sleep with you,” I say categorically.
“I’m going to make you a promise,” his eyes challenge mine. “Before our time is up, you’ll beg me for it.”
