Derrick Arlington is one of the world's most eligible billionaires. Voted Sexiest Man Alive—two years running.

And I just so happen to look exactly like him.

It’s never came in handy until I get offered an actual job out of it.

It was supposed to be so simple.

Go to the Winston Isles, stand in as his body double for a few weeks, go back to my life.

But when our carefully constructed plan goes awry and the billionaire goes missing, I have no choice but to take his place and hire a bodyguard. The best in the business: a smart-mouthed, tight-assed, lady bodyguard.

Zia Barnes is the LAST thing I want, even if I need her. She's determined, smart, and has no idea I'm a total imposter.

Good thing I have no intention on falling for her, or I'd be royally screwed.

Excerpt

“Get rid of her, or she comes with us.”
“I’m not going anywhere, buddy.” I jabbed him in the chest in an attempt to create more space. In close combat with this guy, I’d lose. Sure, I was faster and nimbler. But one good hit and I’d be down.
His sharp, slashing brows drew down. “Suit yourself. I know what to do with someone like you.”
I’d bet he did. And none of those things included me sleeping in my warm cozy bed tonight. “Babe, come on the royal family wants a photo.”
Gray Eyes arched a brow. “Darling, you go ahead I’ll meet you there.” His voice was sin and bad decisions mixed together.
I stood my ground. Now was no time for him to be noble. “Oh, I know King Sebastian insists.”
“I’ll have to pass, love.”
“Yeah, you heard him, he’ll have to —”
He was talking and also raising his right arm. All I saw was the black gleam, and I acted, launching myself in the air and slamming against Gray Eyes. Toppling him over and covering his body with mine, tranq gun raised.
Wasting no time, I squeezed twice. The asshole about to shoot at us was big. Who knew if two doses would be enough? But I was prepared to run.
The muscle-bound brute fell to his knees. I rolled on my back, ready for anything.
But I didn’t need to worry. Two hits with the tranq had done the job.
I sucked in a shuddering breath.
When I turned to my bed of muscles, he was glaring at me. “Do you have a bloody death wish?”
His voice had lost some of the sin quality. It was colder, like he was pissed.
I pushed to my feet. “What? You wanted me to let you go with that asshole? He was going to kill you.”
“I promise you, I’m quite capable.”
Unbelievable. “You could have fooled me. Men wielding weapons and shoving you into a car are generally bad news.”
His gaze narrowed as he glowered at me. “I had it under control.”
I crossed my arms. “Oh, so you're delusional. Okay then. Goodbye, crazy. And P.S. You're welcome.”
“You generally only say thank you when you’re glad someone did something.”
I shook my head. “For fuck’s sake. Next time I’ll let you die then. Pity. You look expensive, like someone would miss you, but it’s no skin off my back. I’ll just let the homicidal asshole kill you when he wakes up.”
“You could have been hurt. Did you pay attention to what just happened?”
“You mean besides me putting on a display of badassery the likes of which you’ve never seen? I also made this couture look damn good. Oh yes… and saved your ass.”
“My ass didn’t need saving, princess.”
“I’m not a princess, asshole. I’m a King’s Knight. I don’t need anybody to save me. Have a nice life.” As I strutted off, I flipped him the bird.

What would you do, for revenge?

Dear Diary,
Oh, who am I kidding?

Dear Life, 
You’re cruel. You’re heartless. You’re sick. You’re really damned twisted.
Do you know that?
Nope…
Still doesn’t cut it. 

Dear Fate…yeah, that’s the one.

Dear Fate, 
What the actual hell?
What exactly did I do to deserve the life you paved for me?
Did I bother you so?
Was I awful?
Did I not pray enough?
You took my life into your hands, fate, and you twisted it. 
You turned it into a broken mess, and you made it ugly. 
You made me ugly. 
A life for a life. 
An eye for an eye.
That’s how it goes, right? 
Her life. Now mine. 
Someone is coming for me, but you already know that, don’t you fate?
Did you plan it?
Did you even try to tell them it wasn’t my fault?
That it was an accident? 
That I didn’t mean for it to happen? 
Or is this part of your sick and twisted plan?
I have one last question, fate, before you go…
Have you got a hero for me?
Because I’m going to need one.

Cash, Jace, and Sawyer: Three cousins sharing an inheritance of five hundred acres of prime California ranch land—and a whole lot of surprises . . .

Cash Dalton is no rancher. He’s an FBI agent—or at least he was, until he left a haunting case behind him and a load of guilt in front of him. Now it turns out he’s also a father—to a twelve-year-old girl he didn’t know he had. Clearly, it’s no time for a new romance, especially not with Aubrey McAlister, who’s renting the cottage on Dry Creek Ranch. She doesn’t even seem to like him. Still, there’s nothing wrong with looking . . .

After calling off her wedding, Aubrey is trying to focus on her interior design career and avoid the fact that she’s the center of small-town gossip. Clearly, it’s no time for a new romance, especially not with brooding Cash. Though she does find him sexy as hell. And he has softened since his daughter arrived—enough for Aubrey to help decorate her room—and even try to get Cash to open up about the chip on his shoulder. Once he does, both their hearts might just follow—but will their futures sync up as well? . . .

Excerpt

Aubrey got the impression they were no longer talking about painting. “You must be a renegade, Cash Dalton.”
He held her gaze, his eyes so blue, they reminded her of Mill Lake in summertime. “Maybe, how ’bout you?” And then his eyes slid over her in a way that wasn’t altogether respectable.
“Me? Uh…I’m pretty conventional.”
“There’s nothing about you a man would call conventional.” He stepped in front of her and flicked a piece of tape off her shirt.
She lifted her face to his, hoping she wasn’t misreading what was going on here. “Should I take that as a compliment?” Are you making a move on me?
“Damn straight it’s a compliment.” His lips twitched and he tilted his head down close enough that she felt his warm breath on her cheeks. “You know, I nearly kissed you the other day? How weird would it be if I kissed you now?”
She chewed her bottom lip. “Probably pretty weird.” But she didn’t move away.
His lips hovered barely an inch from her mouth. “Should we try it? What’s the worst that can happen?” 
It was just a kiss, she argued with herself, trying to dismiss all the reasons it was insane, starting with the fact that she’d just broken her engagement to another man. Her head told her to back away, but her mouth said, “I don’t see how it could hurt.”
And then, just like that, he covered her mouth with his, tasting her lips until the kiss grew deeper…

Polly
I’m a modern twenty-three-year-old princess bound by rules more suited to medieval times. My father’s declining health means I will soon be queen, but, as a woman, I will not be allowed to rule alone. I can only claim my birthright by marrying the man chosen for me—a business tycoon useful to our kingdom.
My parents are unbending. If I do not comply, my younger cousin will take my place simply because he’s a man.
I’m the one who must bend, or walk away and lose everything—my family, my birthright, my island home.
I never met a man tempting enough to risk a kingdom…and then I meet him.

Oscar
I’m the good-looking one. If you need to pick me out of the middle of the Rourke clan, that’s how you do it. Does it bother me that nothing is expected of the fourth-born son other than to flash my devastatingly handsome smile for the press? Maybe.
Would I like to be needed even just by one person who sees me as the key to something important? Yes.
And then I meet her.
Only lightning struck for the wrong woman. She’s on Villroy for a short time before she must return home and marry the man her parents have chosen. If she doesn’t, she loses her birthright.
If I truly care for Polly, I’ll walk away. But do I have the strength to resist the most perfect woman I’ve ever met?
