Alfie might be shy but she’s no pushover. When she learns more about the succession deal hatched between her autocratic grandfather and the handsome Texan stud, she vows to beat her new enemy at his own game.
Exiled for half his life, hard-living Rory Morrissey has been offered a deal: quit the ranch in Texas, return to his New Zealand birthplace, and embark on the delicate mission of convincing Alfie to take him as her husband.

Rory has nothing to lose by accepting the challenge. The girl could be bearable. Perhaps they can outwit the old man and split things amicably? Maybe hell will freeze over first, but this hunky cowboy is determined to ride down his heiress and bundle her into his bed.

A man with a shattered soul becomes total temptation for a girl with a marshmallow heart.
Fitness center entrepreneur Nick Sharpe is under siege. His business is going ballistic and his PA has left without giving notice. He’s offered to donate bone marrow to his desperately ill niece and been told he’s not genetically compatible. Not related. Reeling from the shock of finding he was adopted, Nick has no patience left for his new temp, Samantha – however much she attracts him or rubs him up the wrong way.
Sammie Sherbourne’s sure she can cope with her demanding new boss for the next week or two. Finally free to spread her very cramped wings after a long family crisis, she wants a short-term job until her passport arrives so she can follow her travel dreams. But the possibility she might hold the key to unlock Nick’s true identity eats at her – far more than his money or spectacular body do.
