Summary

Why are the good ones always taken? 
The last thing Amber wants to think about is engagement rings or anything related to engagement rings, but they’re kind of hard to avoid when she makes her living in a jewelry store. Between her job and her last relationship, she’s getting more than a little bit jaded about romance.  In fact, as her cynicism grows, she’s ready to change everything in her life… and a man is the last thing she wants. 
When gorgeous bartender Jeremy wanders into her store, she’s willing to reconsider what she wants right now, but he’s off the menu—he’s here for an engagement ring.  
But as Jeremy comes back again and again to look at the ring, Amber suspects it's not just the price that’s keeping him from taking it home. 
She'd never dream of sabotaging someone's relationship, but is Jeremy about to make a huge mistake? 
This 23,000 word novella was previously published.

    A picture of deception . . .  
    Annabelle Lawson knew nothing about the breathtaking stranger she met on the train—only that he'd make an ideal model for the budding young artist . . . and that she desired him more than she believed possible. But after she'd been seduced, she learned that she'd also been betrayed.  
    The man she thought she loved was really Magnus Wallis—a scoundrel like his father before him, the loathed cousin of Annabelle's benefactor, the honorable Earl of Whitby.  
    A landscape of love . . .  
    No longer the naively romantic girl who would tumble for a rogue, Annabelle cannot avoid a reunion with the despicable Magnus, who wants to include her portraits in his new London gallery. She means to show him her coldest face—but upon seeing him again, her every intention melts from the heat of his touch. It is clear that Magnus still burns with love for her. But is he still the villain he once was, or can he be reformed into a man Annabelle can dare to love?

    Keira starts to figure something is wrong when things in her house get misplaced and then go missing altogether. Soon after, bruised and beaten, she barely breaks away from the person out to destroy her. But how could she have caused someone to become this angry and filled with hatred toward her when she only moved to town a short time ago?

His attraction to Keira is immediate and quickly grows. His rapidly intensifying desire should scare him, but it just gives him more resolve to keep and protect her. 
    As they spend more time together, he starts to suspect something is very wrong with Keira and wonders why she hasn't confided in him. When he finds out she's being stalked, he's determined to help her even though she fights it, but will it be too late?
