Five full-length stand-alone office romances – full of attraction and hesitation, intrigue and secrets, hidden motives and secret passions… and all the fun of falling for the boss — and vice versa!
An Imperfect Love: Love is blind – and marriage is an institution for the blind. In his years as a Phoenix divorce attorney, Justin Abernathy has seen it all – and the bitter marital wars he’s witnessed have left him disillusioned with love. So when Justin decides to get married, he’s seeking a sensible, practical wife who wants the same things he does – a stable marriage and a family, with the promise of forever – accompanied by no mess, no sentiment, and no silly business about love. His announcement sends his confidential secretary, Alisa McClenaghan, into whoops of laughter – until she discovers that she is the bride he’s chosen.
Safe in My Heart: Stunned when her fiancé betrays her, Katherine Whitman reacts by seducing her boss – and when a single night of madness results in a pregnancy, she takes full responsibility. Then Stephen Osborne insists they do as people always have – get married. But does he want Katherine, or only his baby?
The Unlikely Santa: In the retail business, Christmas isn’t a holiday, it’s an endurance contest – and as manager of the Tyler-Royale department store in a major Chicago shopping mall, Brandi Ogilvie knows that surviving December will be a challenge. Then Zack Forrest shows up in her store, insisting he’s the perfect candidate to fill Santa’s red velvet suit.
Brandi’s new Santa is too tall, too lean, too dark, and way too sexy for the role. But he’s enough to make a jaded department store manager think twice about what she’d like to find under her own tree on Christmas morning – if only she wasn’t certain that Zack is hiding something.
The Unlikely Santa was a finalist in the Romance Writers of America RITA contest for best sweet traditional romance of the year.
The Corporate Wife: Why does she keep wishing she’d said YES? Erin Reynolds is already the perfect corporate secretary and personal assistant, so when her boss, Slater Livingstone, suggests they make their arrangement permanent through a marriage of convenience, the idea seems perfectly sensible – to him. Erin, on the other hand, thinks his offer is ludicrous… but the moment she turns him down, she can think of nothing but Slater.
Strictly Business: The lifelong friendship between Gianna West and Blake Whittaker has never interfered with their business partnership, Westway Cosmetics. But when Gianna’s brilliant ideas for marketing their newest perfume throw Blake into the arms of the world’s most gorgeous model, Gianna begins to wonder if she’s made the worst mistake of her life.
