There are a lot of things Grant Emery wants to do on his two-week break: sleep and more sleep. Getting friendly with the sexy neighbor isn't one of them, not when he caught her swimming in his pool without his permission. Oh sure, Paige Robinson is hot, with her toned, mile-long legs. She makes his mind race and his heart pulse. But she's up to something … because she's incredibly nice, incredibly generous. Succumbing to her temptation will only derail a much needed break from his complex job.
Paige has many reasons not to trust the charming Grant. First, he has a secret job. Second, he kissed her—just the day after they first met! Oh, and he intends to disrupt the sale of her house. But she will not let anything stop her from making sure the property gets on the market—even if it means playing extra nice with the secretive, charismatic and oh-so-sinfully handsome neighbor.
Next Door Temptation is a funny, sweet and sexy with a dash of suspense standalone contemporary romance novel.
Since losing her mom, Elena Larsen hasn’t set foot in New York City — until now. Agreeing to help her sister prepare for her baby’s birth seems like a good way to spend Christmas and Elena vows not to let the monstrous guilt that weighs on her heart ruin everything. But those plans go awry when she meets Lucas Adair, a man whose own grief and guilt just might rival her own.
When Elena discovers Lucas is the boy who gave her that crystal snowflake all those years ago, she can’t accept it as the sign Lucas believes it to be. For her, it means only one thing — even beyond the grave, her mother can never forgive Elena for breaking her heart.
For Lucas, New York is hallowed ground that he can never leave. He spends his days working in the Financial District and his evenings volunteering and it’s almost enough to help him forget what he did. Lucas knows better than to make plans with a woman who will soon be leaving, yet can’t help himself. There’s something about Elena that pulls him in. He doesn’t put much faith in signs but even he starts to believe Elena is his absolution. Now, he only has to convince her.
Suzie Hart has it all. A beautiful home, friends and family, and the sweetest job in the world. She's the best darned cook in Harbor Falls, North Carolina, and has the street cred to prove it. She runs her own bed and breakfast, writes a food blog, and is working on her first cookbook.
Life is perfect. Right?
Wrong. You see, Suzie has a secret. And when that secret rides up to her doorstep on a bad-ass Harley and tosses her not-so-perfect little world into some kind of big, bad tumble, happy-go-lucky Suzie panics.
Brad Matthews doesn't have a secret, he has a plan--and that plan includes luring Suzie back into his life. When she worked as his sous chef in Asheville, he had no intention of falling in love with the sassy chef, or any woman for that matter. No room in his life for romance. But when Suzie disappeared and took Brad's heart with her, his good intentions shattered. Now that he's found her again, he's not about to let her alter the new path he's set out for his life--and hers.
