Trick and Treat

Written by Cara Lockwood

Chapter Twenty Four

He did? Lizzie blinked, stunned. How on earth would he like this mousy look better than the sexy-vixen look?

“Look, my ex-girlfriend was the walking vixen. Taught aerobic lap-dancing lessons, slept in her fake eyelashes—the whole thing.” Hunter sighed. “But she cheated on me, brought me nothing but endless drama and, well, I’m looking for a real woman.” He studied her, his dark eyes serious. “I think, right now, you’re the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen in my life.”

That was it for Lizzie.

“Want to come in for a drink?”

He nodded, and she grabbed him by the hand and pulled him inside her apartment. Then she suddenly remembered that she had no drinks, as she’d finished her last bottle of wine days before and hadn’t been shopping yet.

“Actually, I don’t have anything to drink. Except water.” Would he bolt now, she wondered?

“Well, I’ll be honest with you—I don’t really want a drink.”

“You don’t?” Did that mean he was going to leave? Panic rose in her throat. Then he took a step closer.

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…
