I, Willow Summers, am finally free from my mother’s oppressive home. No one in Crookshollow knows who I am or where I came from, and I intend to keep it that way. As long as I plaster a smile on my face and pull off perfect weddings for my clients, no one ever has to know that I’m broken.


That is, until Irvine Baird gets his claws into me.


The smoking hot, ten thousand miles out of my league Scottish hottie wants me, the good girl v*rgin with the dark past.


No one’s ever wanted me before.


There’s only one problem: he’s a werewolf.


The last time I met a werewolf, I lost my leg.


I should be running a mile from Irvine. Instead, I keep falling into his arms. He makes me uncomfortable. He sets my body on fire. He makes me want to spill my deepest, darkest secrets.


Irvine terrifies me. But whenever we touch, sparks fly. There’s an ache inside me that only he can satisfy.


I know I can’t have a happily ever after. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun together. The old me would never have tried a casual fling, but the new Willow can totally handle it. Right?


Right?

My best friend’s a shapeshifter, and now we’re getting married. Nothing could possibly go wrong, right?

When my Grandmother June died, I couldn’t care less. That vicious old hag hated everything about me – from my blue hair and job as a tattoo artist, to the fact that I have no desire to give up my playgirl ways.

Now I learn she’s left me her home, Primrose House – a beautiful Victorian gothic mansion with a turret and a secret passage. The only problem? In order to officially take up residence at the house, I have to be married.

Enter Robbie, my gorgeous best friend and a werewolf shifter without a home. We’re getting fake-married, and he’s moving into Primrose House with me to convince my parents that we’re for real. 

Robbie gets a free place to live, I get to keep Primrose House – everything’s perfect.

Except … when we kissed at the alter of our fake-wedding, something happened. To say “sparks flew” would be the understatement of the century. 

That kiss didn’t just spark, it set off an inferno. 

I can’t stop thinking about Robbie. How come I’d never noticed how hot he was? Those soulful eyes, that Scottish accent and hot shifter body ....

But he’s my best friend, and my fake-husband. If I mess this up, I’ll lose both Robbie and Primrose House. 

I just have to control myself. I just have to resist the urge to repeat that kiss.

It can’t be that hard to avoid falling into bed with your best friend, right? 

Right?
