Adam Cade is the most arrogant man I've ever worked with. He's handsome, rich--and he doesn't remember our shared past, the jerk.


No matter how quickly my heart beats when Adam walks into my office, decked out in an Armani suit, I remind myself of how he treated me years ago. 


When we were young, I was the nerdy girl who’d caught his friend’s eye. And Adam did everything in his power to convince his friend to dump me.


I won’t let Adam ruin my life twice.


The only problem? If I want to put a stop to what's going on at my new job and secure my future, I'll need to get close to Adam--the sexy jerk standing for everything I'm fighting against. 


EXCERPT:


That’s right, Hayden, only two empty seats left.


Hayden darts for the second seat, across the table, but William snags it first.


The universe has it in for her. I cannot contain the joy that fills my heart knowing Hayden is forced to sit next to me. We often get stuck next to each other. Not that I’m complaining. The view works out just right for me, but I think she might object. If I were a different man, I might feel bad, but since I enjoy riling her up, it’s a perk of the job.

After my last cheating ex, I’ve sworn off men. Until Lewis comes along and steals my breath and my good sense.


I’ve never been one to lust after guys. My mother’s revolving door of relationships doused any propensity I might have had long ago. But Lewis is six and a half feet of rugged mountain man, and he’s…eye-catching. Sexy. Silently brooding in all the best ways.


The more time I spend with him, the more naughty thoughts I have of us together, and he’s not helping put a stop to it. It’s infuriating.


I’m fantasizing and lusting, and I can’t remember why I wanted to stay away to begin with.


It turns out, Lewis might be the one man I can't resist. 


But he carries his own relationship baggage. Baggage that could break me in ways no ex-boyfriend ever did.


This hot, romantic comedy will have you intermittently fanning yourself and laughing at Lewis’s sexy approach at convincing Gen they’re right for each other. Grab Mountain Man now!


EXCERPT:


He tugs down his shorts—and goes completely naked.


“Um?”


He glances up. “You can stay in your panties. I’m getting clean… What? I trust you not to grope me.” He grins.


“Hot, funny, infuriating and omg where can I get one please…” ~ Reviewer

Enemies or lovers?

Liam, a successful young lawyer, is allergic to love. He’s always between business trips and, devastated by a dark secret, he has put a lock on his heart. That’s the way he likes it. But when he crosses paths with Zoe, all his principles fly out the window. Zoe is the opposite of his usual conquests: natural, funny, impetuous... and she has no plans to make room in her life for a man.

I watch her delicate hands work over my torso, becoming intoxicated by her scent rising to meet me from her neck.

“I’m so sorry,” she insists, now scrubbing the fabric with concentration, taking breaks to dab her forehead with her arm.

She’s damaging my designer shirt. Instead of pointing that out to her, I observe her every movement. I surprise her a few times as she nibbles her thumb. A habit that reveals how nervous she actually is.

“I’ll pay for the dry cleaning, of course. And free coffee for a week.”

I don't reply.

I resist the temptation to run my hand through her long, silky hair.

I find her beautiful: her fragility, embarrassment, simplicity.

“A month?” she offers, obviously worried by my silence.

“It’s fine for the coffee. A week and we’re even,” I reassure her. "For the dry cleaning, I'll take care of it. Don’t worry about the clothes. It could happen to anyone.”

She stops and looks at me, smiling, relieved by my pacifist reaction.

“I think your shirt is ruined,” she announces, nibbling her lower lip.

“Yeah, I think you’re right about that!” I agree, laughing.

I’m speechless when she starts working on my pants, kneeling down between my legs.

<i>Is this a joke? I thought this kind of thing only happened in movies!</i>

Except there’s nothing funny about the position. On the contrary. The pressure she’s putting on my crotch awakens sensations in my entire body. My imagination becomes quickly uncontrollable. I want her.

Forbidden thoughts start to creep into my mind. To touch her. Caress her. Kiss her.

She suddenly stops, as if she had heard my inappropriate thoughts.

Time stands still for a second, and the noise of the café customers dies down. Here we are, the two of us, completely isolated from the rest of the world.
