“Don’t challenge the devil, sweetheart, if you can’t handle
hell.”

The plan was simple: Find a wife. Get married. Produce an heir.

Simple, yes. That doesn’t mean Brian has to like it. He reluctantly
agrees to his sister’s drastic measure of placing a ‘wife-for-hire’ ad.

What he doesn’t expect to find is a smart-mouthed, infuriating woman who
makes him think of sixty-nine other things he wants to do with her and marrying
her isn’t one of them.

Eshana is far from Brian’s idea of a perfect wife, and their five-minute
interview ends with ‘arrogant ass’ right before she storms out of his
boardroom.

But the universe isn’t quite done with them yet. Their paths cross,
sinfully so and with each meet, the sexual tension burns hotter than a volcano
about to erupt.

Only, Brian’s resolve to get the feisty beauty into his bed, hits a
curveball when Eshana’s enticing pencil skirt and high heels now comes with the
title: Your newly hired assistant.

How much temptation can a man endure before he’s allowed to take his
employee across her desk?

retire to a beautiful seaside cottage where she can spend lazy days on the
beach drinking cocktails and focus all her energy on writing. She is of the
firm opinion that one should not give up on a dream but rather make every
attempt to get there no matter how long it takes.

Her love for
writing stemmed from an avid interest in English at School, more so Literature
and enjoyed writing short stories. She attempted her first full length novel
fifteen years ago and although she loved the finish product decided she’d write
mainly as a hobby and only recently sought publishing.

Believing
writing is the wings to holistic escapism, she makes the time in her busy
schedule giving life to her dreams of bringing together passion filled heroes
and heroines in a happily ever after.

So what is he supposed to do when a wrong delivery — a questionable large box of bedroom toys — ends up in his hands instead of its intended target?

Online stalking has always been his go-to to accumulate information on people, but only seeing Whitney through digital displays isn’t enough. Approaching her doesn’t seem like the best plan either.

What he doesn’t know is that this woman is possibly the only one in existence able to give him a run for his money.

Excerpt from Broken Trust:
Ten songs and three bottles of water later, I follow him onto the deck, putting my arms on the railing and looking out at the water.
            “Feeling better?” He leans against the rails beside me, watching the ocean roll in and out.
            “Yeah… Have you ever been jealous of the waves, Jonah?”
            He turns to me, puzzled. “No, why would I be?”
            “When I was younger, my father used to tell me how dangerous the water was. I can still hear him laughing at my fear of the waves while trying to warn me of the real dangers below the surface. ‘The waves are simply the ocean dancing, Princess. The real danger is what you can’t see, so never go in alone. The currents will pull you under and turn you around until you have no idea which way is up.’” I smile at Jonah, wiping away a stray tear.
“He’s a smart man.” Jonah nods.
 “Yes, he was. See, those waves are the most carefree part of the water. No matter how hard the ocean tries to pull them back in, to break them of their dance… their freedom… it can’t. Those waves-” I motion to the water, whispering. “-are everything I try to be. What’s not to envy, Jonah? Their spirit? Their strength?” Wiping away another tear, I look into his eyes, my voice breaking. “The currents are winning, Jonah. They have pulled me under, and I am drowning.”
“Eliana.” He huffs out my name as if he’s been punched.
“I wanna be a wave, Jonah.”
“Then let’s be waves, beautiful.” He takes my hand.
“Things are different now.” We both look at my ring.
“A current?” he asks.
“No, he’s drowning, too. He just won’t admit it.”
“Are you in love with him?”
“It doesn’t matter.” I smile, stepping off the deck and wiggling my toes in the sand. “If I can’t be a wave, then at least we can dance with them.” I grin up at Jonah and then sprint down the sand into the water, screaming when the first wave rushes over my feet.
“It’s three a.m.! You’ll freeze.” Jonah sweeps me up, trying to carry me back to the dry sand when an unexpected surge of water knocks us over.
“Holy shit, that’s cold,” he yells out, and I laugh.
“You feel that, Jonah?”
“The cold? Yeah I feel it.” He scoops me into his arms and carries my shivering body up the shore, placing me on a lounge, and runs up to grab the blanket from the deck. Sitting behind me, he pulls my back to his chest and wraps the blanket around us both.
“That, Jonah, was a wave trying to remind me who I am.” I lean into him, shivering, slowly warming back up as my eyes begin to get heavy.
“And who is that, beautiful?”
“I am Eliana Annalise Jameson, and I am a hell of a lot stronger than the woman I have allowed myself to become.”
“Yeah, and what are you going to do about that?” I can hear the smile in his voice.
“I’m going to fight back.”
