When Michael (Mike) Withers relocated to Jacksonville, taking over as Withers International‘s CEO in an effort to be closer to his sister and her new family, he never imagined finding himself at a crossroads.
Burned by his ex-fiancée, Mike traded in his dream of a house with a white picket fence and a family of his own and submersed himself in work and entertaining the occasional lady, even if the woman in question worked for him.
Was he a player? Hardly. But Nicole (Nikki) Baxter wouldn’t believe the truth even if it hit her between the eyes. The woman claimed that once a player, always a player.
Compelled to prove her wrong, games begin which Mike is quick to realize could lead him down one of two roads: heartache or the life he had desired once but had resolved to quit chasing.
Maybe he’d given up too early?
Maybe his ex hadn’t really been the one?
And maybe happiness lay in the form of a feisty, argumentative, tiny package with tight skirts and an ability to turn any argument into foreplay?
Jake had it all: women, money, great looks. For all intents and purposes, he was happy.
A series of women and an unexpected appearance by a ghost from his past cause him to re-evaluate his life.
She’d broken his heart, all those years ago, and Jake chose to live the life of a bachelor there on out. Along with his fast-paced career, he ran a fast-paced social life. It’s what worked for him. Or he’d convinced himself it did.
The loneliness his large home presented the minute the housekeeper went home and the women that warmed his bed deserted him, left him wanting. Could he have what so many of his friends already did: the woman, the family, the house with the white picket fence? Maybe. But just because he desired these things, things he’d sworn off ages ago, doesn’t mean that they were destined for him.
After a bitter marriage, Paxton seeks respite from his loss. Rediscovering his writing, he never expected creating a piece worthy of reading nor for two unsuspecting paths to cross in the most unconventional of ways.
Thousands of miles separated them, yet he’d never felt closer to anyone. Finding out that happiness and love was attainable again, was one thing. Having Alissa, was another.
When the two meet, sparks fly, chemistry is beyond explosive, and emotions reach a boiling point. Their brief love affair ignited the fuse but what Paxton neglected to anticipate was that his son would fall for the sweet, meek demurred woman in Alissa or the fact the woman would be their salvation; in more ways than one.
Love isn’t hard to find. Holding on to it is another story.
With everything being bountiful in her life, Lacey Flannigan had everything she could ever want. An illustrious career with James & Sons, beauty, a multitude of friends and a financial wealth beyond what she could ever hope for, thanks to her parents.
Still, one thing eluded her – love. When things get hot and heavy between her and a co-worker, no one thought that their very existence would be threatened.
