He has to stay away from her.

Thirty-year-old entrepreneur Rick Donnelly is under contract to remain unattached until his fifteen-year-old half-sister turns twenty-one. If he breaks the rule, not only will he have to hand over the management of his half-sister's substantial inheritance to his reckless stepmother, but he'll also have to transfer twenty percent ownership of his company to the untrustworthy woman. When the tempting Lexie Mead decides to knock down his heart's defenses, he finds himself in danger of breaking the contract's strict condition--something he simply cannot afford to do.

She intends to win his heart.

Twenty-six-year-old Lexie Mead has long had feelings for the hunky Rick Donnelly. Tired of being treated as just another one of his friends, she sets out to win his heart from prettier and more aggressive women admirers. But Rick has complications to deal with... and enemies who will do anything to see him fail. She doesn't want to see him lose the things he's worked hard to keep. But how can they have a future together when she is forced to walk away and Rick can't ask her to stay?

This is Book 2 of the Time for Love series. Enjoy as a stand-alone book, or follow this steamy series.

A pact with her best friends has Sarah Daley promising to make time for love after a long period of retreating from relationships. But before she embarks on finding her happily-ever-after, she wants to do something she's never done before—experience a short, hot fling. And the hunky Jeffrey Carmichael, grandson of the elderly lady who hired her as a private nurse, is the only guy who attracts her for that purpose.

Jeffrey Carmichael has long discovered that flings, not commitment, are what works best for him. After being dumped by an ex-fiancée shortly after the most devastating period of his life, he's decided that serious commitment isn't all it's cracked up to be. So when he is presented with an opportunity to start a casual relationship with his grandmother's fun and pretty nurse, he simply can't resist.

When love enters uninvited, can they admit to wanting something more than temporary? And when Jeff can't avoid welcoming his ex-fiancée back into his life, can Sarah push aside her ghosts of the past and learn to trust again?

It was supposed to be just one week, just sex, no commitment, but somewhere along that overwhelmingly sexy ride, Rachel fell in love with Landon. There’s just one problem—he doesn’t do commitment.

It hurts to be with him, but being without him hurts more. How do you make a choice about love when there’s really no choice at all?

‘A beautifully written novella. Perfect holiday reading.’ - Mine of Books Blog

This year, if Hadley wrote her dream Christmas list, it would go something like this:

1. Spend every waking – and sleeping – moment with her incredibly gorgeous boyfriend, Will.

2. Figure out what’s been bugging him lately. Yes, going away to college has been tough...but it’s time they reconnected.

3. Enjoy a sparkling Christmas in New York City, gazing at the Rockefeller tree, going ice skating, and drinking steaming mugs of cocoa in Central Park.

So, driving off to spend Christmas in a rustic cabin in the woods wasn’t exactly the plan. But when it comes to her irresistible, and at times, impossible boyfriend, nothing’s ever that simple. And as fantasies of an icy Times Square are replaced by a clumsily decorated tree, making snowmen and the warmth of a log fire, Hadley feels herself falling in love all over again.

Except does Will have something to tell her that could change Hadley’s happily-ever-after Christmas dreams into a not-so-winter wonderland after all?

Don't miss this festive sequel novella to This Summer

Praise for Katlyn Duncan
