"You want me to marry you?"
That wasn't a question I expected from Mr. Chiseled Jaw.
I was there to investigate a lead, not to get wet every time I looked at him.
How would I even start this story?
Hmm, let's see...
"Rich cowboy with abs of steel takes me and makes me his?"
Not the most professional way to begin.
"No, honest, I can stay emotionally unattached and do my job."
...says no woman ever. I should've known better.
I was doing just fine controlling myself, until he miraculously showed up and rescued me from near-death.
My p@nties almost flew off of their own volition!
It's the next part I wasn't prepared for:
"Will you be my fake fiancé?"
This is a steamy, full-length, fake fiance romance with a happily ever after!

Billionaire's Blind Date Complete Series Box Set
The business press calls me the “Nathan the Pharma Wonder.” My story’s great, after all.
I grew up middle-class, and I’m a self-made billionaire. Plus, my success was in the tough world of drug development.
But, yeah, one problem: I have no one to share my success with.
I’ll admit a lot of that is because I’ve been more focused on my career than women. Even then, the few women I have dated didn’t care about me. All they cared about was my bank account.
When a friend set me up on a blind date, I figured I had nothing to lose. I also figured maybe I didn’t need to be all that upfront about how rich I am. Easy way to see if the woman wanted me and not my money.
I didn’t expect to meet anyone like Emersyn. She’s an angel, a sweet nurse who is beautiful in body and personality.

Prelude in the American Gods series.
Young. Wealthy. Elite. Attractive. The gentlemen’s secret society at Yale was filled with them.
And Nathaniel Radcliffe, the bane of my existence, was one of them.
As the right hand of the American Gods, he was conceited and arrogant. A dangerously handsome man in a tailored custom suit and shiny black oxford loafers.
The classroom was our battlefield. We made a sport out of arguing and debating, ready to do anything in order to win over the other.
Deadly opponents, deadlier minds.
I'd sworn I'd never give him the upper hand, until...
The secret I’ve been hiding for the last three years?
He just discovered it… and now he has all the power.

And I know better than anyone you can’t help who you love.
Just who knows about it.
And now that he'll always be off limits, there’s no point in sharing my secret.
It doesn’t matter if my body screams for his touch whenever we cross paths.

Because Logan Jones and I are never going to happen.

And why would they want to? The man is hot AF.

Trent Salway is one of San Francisco’s hot up-and-coming-under-thirty bachelors. A highly successful mutual fund portfolio manager, a workaholic, and a ladies’ man, he’s got everything he could possibly want…except one thing.
Physical therapist Kelsey Quaid dumped her ex-fiancé six months ago because she was tired of not even being a distant second to his career. Which is why despite secretly crushing on her big brother’s best friend for as long as she can remember, there’s no way Kelsey can go there. One workaholic in her life is more than enough, thank you very much.
Before Kelsey’s brother leaves on his Navy SEAL mission, he asks Trent one simple request: make sure Kelsey isn’t dating any assholes while he’s away. As Trent does his best to do just this, he and Kelsey spend more and more time together. Sparks fly, as do a few items of clothing, and the next thing they know things are getting physical between them. Now, Trent has to decide what to do about the woman he’s falling for—the one whose brother would take him down faster than he takes down the enemy. And Kelsey will have to decide if Trent is just another workaholic or if he’s decidedly off limits.

The First Full Length Novel in the Bestselling Montgomery Ink Series
On the wrong side of thirty, Austin Montgomery is ready to settle down. Unfortunately, his inked sleeves and scruffy beard isn’t the suave business appearance some women crave. Only finding a woman who can deal with his job, as a tattoo artist and owner of Montgomery Ink, his seven meddling siblings, and his own gruff attitude won’t be easy.
Finding a man is the last thing on Sierra Elder’s mind. A recent transplant to Denver, her focus is on opening her own boutique. Wanting to cover up scars that run deeper than her flesh, she finds in Austin a man that truly gets to her—in more ways than one.
Although wary, they embark on a slow, tempestuous burn of a relationship. When blasts from both their pasts intrude on their present, however, it will take more than a promise of what could be to keep them together.
The second in the bestselling Montgomery Ink series. He's kept away from her for years, but now his best friend's little sister is stepping up the game.
Decker Kendrick knows it’s wrong to have feelings for his best friend’s little sister, but that doesn’t stop his thoughts from going down that path. No matter how hard he’s tried to stay away from Miranda, once she gets her sights on him, there’s no backing down.
Miranda Montgomery might be the youngest of the Montgomery clan, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t know what she wants. Namely—Decker. She’s loved him for as long as she can remember and won’t walk away until she gives it her all.
But once they give in, not all is at it seems.
Decker’s father’s out of jail and someone from Miranda’s past isn’t happy with the new relationship. Even as they start to move on and overcome their pain, they’ll find that their inner obstacles are the ones they’ll have to face first.
