Knight in Shining Suit
Sometimes, getting over pain and betrayal means Getting Up, Getting Even and Getting a Better Man!
Astrid had planned out her perfect wedding. That was before she found out that her fiance, Bryan, was cheating on her with her cousin-slash-best-friend-slash-maid-of-honor, Geena. Worse, Bryan got Geena pregnant.
Just when Astrid thought it couldn’t get any worse, she received an invitation telling her that her fairy tale wedding will happen exactly the way she planned it. Except that she was no longer the bride!
So when her parents urged her to attend the wedding “as family”, she planned the perfect revenge. She hired Ryder, the smoking hot bartender she met, to pretend to be the perfect Prince Charming–rich, smart and totally in love with her.
Ryder pulled off the role quite well. And soon, everybody thought Astrid was really with a smoking hot guy who wore expensive suits on a daily basis, drove a luxurious sports car, and was totally in love with her.
Astrid invented the perfect guy every girl would kill to date, and every ex-boyfriend would hate to be compared with.
Or did she really just invent him?
What if she really did kiss a frog and tamed a beast? And her quest for revenge was really the start of her happily ever after?
The women in Brianne Montgomery’s family have a curse that compels them to marry before the age of thirty-one, and she wasn’t going to be the first one to break it.
Her life seemed perfect. Her parents were happily married and she had a wonderful brother who looked out for her. The only thing she hated about her life was Travis Cross—her brother’s annoying best friend.
But Brianne’s life took a sudden turn with a tragic death in her family. In an instant, she lost everything she held close to her in her perfect life.
Travis made a lifetime promise to take care of Brianne for the rest of his life. He promised to be her safety guy to save her from the family curse. He also promised her brother he wouldn’t touch or even want her. And Travis is one person who knows how to keep his promises–no matter what the cost.
Soon, their once hateful relationship turned into an unbreakable bond of love and friendship.
However, their dependent and comfortable relationship would always be complicated because of the yearning inside Travis that craved Brianne like a drug. And Brianne struggled to stay immune to his charms. She had already lost so much, and Travis had become the most important thing she couldn’t afford to gamble with.
This romance follows Travis and Brianne’s lives from the age of sixteen to adulthood and how they dealt with family, divorce, death, teen peer pressure, marriage and breakups… all of which make up their deep and unbreakable connection: A relationship so beautiful, they’re afraid to risk it for anything… not even for love itself.
All the Wrong Reasons
Adrienne prides herself for being smart, prim and proper. She doesn’t go against the rules of society and refuse to even take a shot of Tequila. In other words: Conservative. Boring.
Instead of having fun and letting her spirit run free, she spent almost all her life trying to gain her mother’s approval, measuring up to her sister’s greatness, and proving herself worthy of her boyfriend’s love and attention. She’s been lying to everybody, including herself, about who she really was.
But no matter what she does, she just can’t seem to live up to their expectations. And then she got fed up and decided to let loose. For just one night. She left her eyeglasses, flat shoes, long skirt and knitted sweater behind.
In high heels and a dress that accented her long legs and curves, she went to a club by herself and decided to find out what it was like to have a good time. Her night couldn’t even be more perfect when Justin Adams, the city’s most sought after bachelor, a.k.a. most notorious playboy fell prey to the charms she didn’t even know she possessed.
Justin was every girl’s dream boat, but he never committed to a woman. He didn’t date and didn’t do relationships.
So, Adrienne thought after that night, she didn’t have to deal with him again. He would forget about her and her secret night of fun was safe with him.But what she did not expect is that Justin isn’t about to let her go that easily. And what was supposed to be just a one night stand with the City’s most wanted playboy became a full-blown secret affair.
In the eyes of her friends and family, she had a boyfriend named Troy. But within the walls of her bedroom, she belonged to Justin.
But her new-found bliss would be threatened by the secrets that Justin keeps and the past that her parents kept from her.
Soon, she will find out that she’s been living her life with all the right intentions… but for all the wrong reasons.
