Trick and Treat

Written by Cara Lockwood

Chapter Fourteen

Lizzie felt flustered and overwhelmed. Her head spun: she’d had one of the best climaxes of her life and then she’d seen that Maverick might not be as free and clear of his ex as she’d first thought. She’d only seen I need youpop up on the screen. It didn’t sound like an ex, exactly. Of course the man she broke all her rules for wasn’t single. That made perfect sense, and was just her luck. But why was she making a big deal of it? Halloween wasn’t for serious romance. It was for…quickies in the back seat of a Ryde car. So, why did she feel so disappointed?

She felt the sudden urge to flee. She needed to get away, get into the safety of Vance and Tanner’s party.

“Wait!” Maverick called behind her. “Wait!”

She hesitated on the sidewalk just long enough to see a pained look on Maverick’s face as his phone came to life in his hands. Tamara calling, no doubt. He answered the call, and that was all Lizzie needed. He’s not interested in you, Lizzie told herself. Get a move on. She turned away from Maverick and trotted up to Vance and Tanner’s front door, resisting the urge to turn around.

Her Secret Valentine

Written by Nicola Marsh

Some people might say getting married on Valentine’s Day is the height of romance, but for divorce lawyer and romance cynic Kiara Hastings it’s the height of cliché. But as her sister’s maid of honour she must suffer through the cake tastings and tulle. Until an encounter with a sexy gardener leads to a red-hot fling that promises to make the wedding preparations more pleasurable. Kiara is stunned when the man who made her scream with pleasure is introduced to her later as Ashton Cromwell, the groom’s brother and the best man!

Ashton agrees to keep their sexy secret and wants to continue enjoying their mind-blowing chemistry behind closed bedroom doors. Since his divorce, Ashton has earned himself a playboy reputation, and when it seems like having Kiara on his arm could be good for business, he proposes a fake relationship until the wedding is over.

But as Valentine’s Day approaches, these two romance cynics find they’re not immune to all the love in the air, and that their pretence is starting to feel all too real…
