Summary

A woman hides from the spotlight—and her own broken heart—in a smart, sassy novel that’s a "heady mix of love, loss, law and celebs” (Allie Spencer).    For Jane Porter, being a pop star’s girlfriend was a dream come true—until her big-time boyfriend started playing around and the paparazzi turned on her like a pack of hyenas.   Now in a new city with a new look, Jane has retreated to work a quietly anonymous job in a patent law firm—at least until the furor dies down. Besides, some good old-fashioned hard work will help repair her shattered confidence.   Then she meets patent lawyer Marshall Winfield—sweet, clever and dealing with the aftermath of his own romantic disaster—who might just be the cure for Jane’s broken heart.   But with the press still hot on Jane’s heels and an office troublemaker hell-bent on making things difficult, do Jane and Marsh stand any chance of finding happiness together?   "Fresh and fun, Rhoda Baxter's debut novel is an entertaining read about learning to trust—and love—again.”—Talli Roland, author of The Hating Game

Alas, she knows all enchantments must end when the clock strikes midnight.

Yet, if he offers her his heart, will Benedict sacrifice his only chance for a fairy tale love?

    When girl meets Duke, their marriage breaks all the rules… 
    Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury’s to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: brooding, glowering, menacing London ne’er-do-wells by night. Now there’s a new item on the list. He needs an heir—which means he needs a wife. When Emma Gladstone, a vicar’s daughter turned seamstress, appears in his library wearing a wedding gown, he decides on the spot that she’ll do. 
    His terms are simple: 
    - They will be husband and wife by night only. 
    - No lights, no kissing.  
    - No questions about his battle scars.  
    - Last, and most importantly… Once she’s pregnant with his heir, they need never share a bed again. 
    But Emma is no pushover. She has a few rules of her own: 
    - They will have dinner together every evening.  
    - With conversation. 
    - And unlimited teasing. 
    - Last, and most importantly… Once she’s seen the man beneath the scars, he can’t stop her from falling in love…

    That was the deal. Every year, Livvy Kane and Nicholas Chandler would share one perfect night of illicit pleasure. The forbidden hours let them forget the tragedy that haunted their pasts—and the last names that made them enemies.  
    Until the night she didn’t show up.  
    Now Nicholas has an empire to run. He doesn’t have time for distractions and Livvy’s sudden reappearance in town is a major distraction. She’s the one woman he shouldn’t want . . . so why can’t he forget how right she feels in his bed?  
    Livvy didn’t come home for Nicholas, but fate seems determined to remind her of his presence—and their past. Although the passion between them might have once run hot and deep, not even love can overcome the scandal that divided their families.
