My real dream is to write children's books, so I took a job with an education company to learn the ropes. Things started off great, until I met my boss’ brother, who could be my next cover model. Best not to let that slip though, since I didn’t put romance novelist on my resume. My pen name protects my secret, but is it forcing me to live a lie?

As far as excuses go it has merit, and even gives me reason to bump into the beautiful new writer, who I can’t stop thinking about. But getting close to her is so, so wrong, considering she doesn’t know I’m the one who writes her paycheck.

There was only one label for what we had. This was fate. ★Maddie McComber★ The one rule I lived by since I started tending bar was a rule I devised to protect myself from jerks who liked to hit on me, as if serving them drinks with a smile made me the easiest target for their pleasure. My rule was firm: I did not, under any circumstances, sleep with the regulars. The last thing I needed was a man derailing my career trajectory in law, especially since I had one year to go until graduation day from Harvard. I worked my you know what off, and the rule served me well to start, until fate put someone in my path who I was attracted to like a magnet. It figured that it was only a matter of time until this happened, when a man charmed me and possessed a magnetic field that was unavoidable. ★Daniel Jones★ I didn't do relationships thanks to plenty of experience I had with the painful side of love.

She deserved the romantic guy who would bend the earth in half for her just so she could walk across it. I knew I didn’t have that in me. Did I? When trouble struck at the pub and Maddie needed someone, I was there for her. I couldn’t ignore how she looked at me like I was her savior—and how much I lived for th ...
