Twelve countries. Twelve men. Twelve million dollars!
Six months.
That’s how long Deacon Brady has been playing the game of the world’s most eligible bachelor on the new hit reality show, Tainted Love.
This time, his journey takes him to Mykonos. The land of Greek Gods, sparkling azure water and mouthwatering Greek men. It’s there where he meets his next bachelor, Adonis.
Remembering his time in Greece after filming, Mamma Mia! Deacon once again, finds himself surrounded by the hits of ABBA, for an all new bachelor edition of the hit musical.
The director Dante has a way of putting a twist on things when it comes to remakes and ratings. Of course for Deacon, that means not everything goes according to plan.
Adonis is the competitive one, with his Olympic sized… games. He may very well be the one that pushes Deacon to the limit, which could cost him his reputation, the game and the twelve million dollars he’s been working so hard to win.
He’s tried to keep his distance, and broken promises, but Dante keeps throwing new obstacles his way. Deacon is finding it more and more difficult to stay focused, especially when it comes to Adonis.
With his sister Kate’s health deteriorating, Deacon begins to lose all hope that he can keep his promise to her and carry on with the show until the very end.
When tragedy strikes, not once, but twice, lives hang in the balance and Tainted Love is forced to temporarily shut down production.
Only halfway through the journey, will this be where the final credits roll for Deacon?
Mykonos, Greece – where the music never stops!

BLURB:

Unravelling is a beautifully broken love story between two completely opposite people.

Life’s a breeze for Claire Marks.

Or, at least, it should be.

She comes from a successful, tight-knit and well-to-do family, is pursuing a career in publishing and has the attention of a handsome man. Her life is every woman’s dream. She should be enjoying it. Instead her mind wages war with her emotions everyday, leaving her feeling troubled and confused.

Ryan Banks is confident and easygoing, rarely letting things bother him. His relaxed personality is put to the test with Claire, whose moods he can never predict. But beneath her unsettled surface, he sees more—A beautiful, intelligent, big-hearted and sensual woman who’s daily struggles do not define her; a woman he wants in his life more than anything else.

When he discovers the true reason for Claire’s behaviour, he’s determined to help her shine. Ryan believes Claire is worth the challenges.

Can they hold onto one another through the ups and downs? Can they truly learn to love unconditionally?

Warning: This book is intended for readers 18+ and over. This book contains scenes that may concern some readers. Reader discretion is advised.

EXCERPT #1:
Ryan stepped towards her. It was a careful, measured step, as though he didn’t want to overstep his mark again. “I’m sorry about today. I promise I won’t treat you like a damsel in distress again.”
Claire attempted to swallow the lump in her throat. “Good. T-that’s good, then.”
The faintest of smiles played across Ryan’s face. He stroked the back of his fingers down the fair skin of Claire’s cheek. His breath brushed her skin as he brought his face close to hers before he kissed her.
He set her on fire as his tongue teased hers and coaxed it into his mouth. He tasted like a decadent dish, a temptation that one couldn’t get enough of. This kiss was opening a floodgate Claire feared she would never be able to close.
