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?

Alexandra Kline has landed her dream job - curating her first art exhibition at the prestigious Halt Institute in the small English village of Crookshollow. But the dream quickly turns into a nightmare when she’s forced to work with Ryan Raynard - the arrogant, reclusive artist who refuses to co-operate with her. When Ryan’s paintings don’t show up at the gallery on time, Alex heads out to his crumbling, gothic manor to give him a piece of her mind.
Billionaire artist Ryan Raynard hides a dark secret. He’s a fox shifter, who shuns the company of humans and hunts alone at night in the forest surrounding his home.
