If you can trust your enemy with your life, what’s to stop him from stealing your heart?
FROM WINTER’S ASHES, book two in The Girl Next Door Series is now available!
Hopelessly unlucky in love and a target for tragedy, Joselyn Whyte hardly leads the charmed life you’d expect of an heiress. When she becomes the mark of an arsonist, the last person she expects to ride to her rescue is her nemesis—the man who sealed her fate as a frigid and lonely “Snow Whyte.”
Firefighter Finn Carson might talk a big game, but behind the swagger and the dimples is a man tormented by a mistake that cost a life. When a force stronger than his stubbornness pulls him off the bench and into a 5-Alarm fire for a miraculous save, Finn decides the key to his redemption lies with the Ice Princess he loathes. But the price to freedom from the guilt and nightmares might be too steep if it means bartering with Joselyn’s father by posing as her boyfriend—her safety and the ruthless billionaire’s Senatorial campaign hanging on the combustible edge of a decade old grudge.
When secrets from the past resurface, the ruse and reality collide and threaten to thaw their heated rivalry—turning hate into something that terrifies them even more than the cunning predator with a bent sense of justice.
From the book…
“When the world slowed to a stop, she blinked her focus back and discovered the large, dark haired man was inspecting her. A bristly unkempt overgrowth of facial hair webbed down onto his neck to the collar of his EMT uniform. He pulled a pad from the shelf to his right and attempted to guide her head back down to rest. It seemed like he was trying to help, but everything about this man from the anger brewing in his eyes to the tense plane of his body insinuated something else.”
“Guiding her toward the back door, he pressed his hand at the small of her back and leaned into her ear.
“You ready to give’em an eyeful?”
Her head whipped around and her eyes unleashed their venom, a waft of her peppermint hair teasing his nose.
“Don’t get any ideas. You just behave yourself. We’re going out back. Hopefully they won’t catch on until we get to your truck.”
He allowed a few moments for her to witness his slow, mischievous grin for her edification and was rewarded when a subtle flush of color filled her cheeks.”
