Summary

Frenemies and desire, a lethal cocktail.
 
Mason is a Yadili fixer. Like his name implies, there’s never been a challenge he couldn’t cut, dress, and lay to rest. Those close to him fondly call him Mace—a heavy club with a spiked metal head—for a reason. He will rip the heart out of anyone who crosses him. However, when the treacherously seductive Sophie comes to him for a favour, the grudge he’s suppressed for a decade threatens to spiral out of control.
 
 
 
Sophie holds her own in the ruthless Yadili world. She set up the Haven Project to provide safety for her workers. Still, someone is intent on destroying her. So she has little option but to ask the dangerously desirable Mason for help. He offers her a deal she can’t refuse. But making a bargain with Mason is akin to dealing with the devil. Still, better the devil she knows, especially one she’s resented for ten years.
 
 
 
Together, Mason and Sophie must battle to survive all manner of betrayals. That’s if their thinly veiled animosity for each other doesn’t consume them first.

    The wedding is fake, but the feelings are real.
     
    Molly was abandoned at the altar and has no intention of heading back there anytime soon. When she crosses paths with arrogant fireman Tim, she knows better than to let her heart get involved. A serious journalist working for her family's newspaper, Molly's plan is to focus on her career and her adorable new labrador puppy.
     
    Tim left his own family's newspaper to become a fireman with the Atlanta Fire Department. He watched the media business consume his family and he has no time for journalists, let alone a beautiful and feisty one from his family's rival paper.
     
    When the feud gets even more personal, Molly and Tim have had enough. They hatch a Romeo & Juliet-esque plan to bring peace to their warring families with a fake engagement—and a fake wedding to go with it.
     
    But when their bid to reunite their families backfires, their attraction only grows—and Molly and Tim start to doubt if love truly conquers all.

    The vows were fake, but the feelings are real.
     
    "If we're still single at forty, we'll marry each other."
     
    To most friends it's a joke rather than a promise, but not for former high school sweethearts Rachel and Daniel, who run into each other on a plane to Vegas 20 years later. They bond over their unlucky history in love, and after a night of bad decisions and a trip to the drive-through altar, they end up married.
     
    In the moment, it seems perfect: Rachel has always wanted a family of her own; Daniel is nursing a broken heart after his ex-fiancée called off their wedding at the last minute. But when they wake up the next morning a little less starry eyed, they might just regret their hasty I do's.
     
    The clear thing to do is annul the marriage. Except... posing just seems to fit them. And they may just find that the best love stories happen out of order.

    The honeymoon is fake, but the feelings are real.
     
    Private investigator Callum's next case is sending him on a Caribbean cruise, but there's a catch: it's a honeymoon cruise, and he needs a wife. A former Navy Seal with a rough childhood, Callum isn't the easiest to get to know. He definitely isn't close enough to someone to ask them to play the role of fake spouse. Callum is usually a consummate professional, but when he meets a gorgeous single mother recommended by a colleague, he's off his game.
     
    Widowed ex-cop Jessie moved back home to Atlanta after losing her husband. She has enough on her plate getting her son settled in a new school and starting over as a PI, but when Callum offers her the gig, she jumps at the chance to work with a successful peer and quickly finds herself caught up in their act.
     
    As the case unfolds, they find themselves uncovering a web of lies more complicated than they expected... and falling for each other at the same time. Can they solve the case, or will they get caught up in the tropical atmosphere and start mixing business with pleasure?
