Trick and Treat

Written by Cara Lockwood

Chapter Twenty Three

Lizzie buzzed up the Navy pilot, her stomach feeling like it was full of drunk butterflies. She had no opportunity to don her Material Girl costume, so he’d have to see her as the real Lizzie: no makeup, no stilettos, just…her. Would he still want her? At least I’ll find out if he was interested in the costume or the real me.

He knocked softly on her door and she swung it open to find the big-shouldered man taking up much of the doorframe. God, the man was sex itself. His dark eyes brightened when they saw her.

“Hey,” he said. “I’m Hunter.”

“I’m Lizzie.” He extended a hand and she shook it. Then he glanced at her robe and her flat hair.

“You look a little different, Material Girl.”

Lizzie shifted uncomfortably at the door. Here was the moment of truth. Was he only into the Madonna version of herself? Or could he go for the real, boring, no-makeup Lizzie?

“This is how I normally look,” she confessed. “I’m not usually a sexy pop star. I’m actually a real-life librarian. So…if you want to go, I understand.”

“Why would I go? I like this look much better.”

And when a wedding invite arrives six weeks later, she knows she can’t show up without a plus-one.

But when their arrangement goes from a few hours to a few days, will Felicity be left out in the cold this Christmas?


Written by Caitlin Crews

Wild child Angelique Masterson will do whatever it takes, to get whatever she wants—and what she wants, is her late father’s hotel empire. Her plan? She’ll make a deal with the devil…

Prince Zain, the dangerously seductive owner of the world-famous Desert Oasis Hotel and Spa, is the only person Angelique can turn to. But, this rebellious New Yorker will not be controlled—this is her deal to make.

Her proposition is simple. Zain will give Angelique a job at his hotel, and she will give him the one thing he desires the most—her! But, with six months to prove herself, what will happen when Zain returns for the one, red-hot night she promised him?
