Burgeoning photographer Olivia Bell is a normal twenty-four-year-old, working diligently to hone her craft with the help of her idol and mentor, Everett Shaw. But she quickly falls for the much older, irresistible Lothario, and the two embark on a passionate, forbidden romance.
When their relationship is revealed, the fallout has dire consequences. Everett isn’t just Liv’s mentor—he’s also a well-traveled, nefarious lady’s man responsible for countless broken hearts across the globe. Not to mention, her sister despises Everett to the deepest recesses of her soul. The odds are stacked against the star-crossed lovers, but they can’t deny what their hearts want.
Determined to be together, they forge full steam ahead despite all that stands in their way. But what happens when Liv and Everett realize they are in different places in their lives… with conflicting hopes and dreams? Liv has to decide if she’s willing to fight to hold on to the love of her life, even if it means altering the plans she has for her future.
But what will she do when the skeletons in Everett’s closet are brought out into the light?
According to the law of attraction, women and men can’t be friends.
Contrary to this myth, my friendship with Coriander Phillips does not rest on unrequited love or un-actualized lust. We’ve been inseparable since the day I pulled one of her pigtails and she punched me in the gut.
I’m the boy friend—the loyal shoulder she cries on, the dispenser of coffee, sympathy, hugs, advice, and affection with no expectations.
Until the invisible line between friends and lovers became blurry.
Now I want more. I want her.
All I have to do is convince her we can be more than friends.
If only it were that easy.
When I’m forced to make a deal with my father to marry the woman of his choosing for a business deal, I never expected to find someone I connect with. Someone who doesn’t fawn all over me because I’m the heir to a billion dollar fortune. Someone who sees the real me. And someone I can’t get enough of in turn.
There’s only one problem – I can’t have her. She’s the wedding planner.
It’s the chance of a lifetime – plan the wedding of a billionaire’s son that’ll put my event planning business on the map and get me out of debt. A no brainer, right?
Except the bride wants nothing to do with this arranged marriage. And as the groom and I get closer, the professional lines between us blur until there’s something there neither of us can deny. With my business on the line and our chemistry off the charts, I’m torn whether I should keep resisting the one person I never expected to fall for.
When Guardian Angel, Evangeline, fell in love with her human charge, Liam, she never expected it to come with such a high price. She was perfectly fine watching his life from a distance, but when Liam prays for guidance and he can suddenly hear her, Evangeline can’t help but confess her love.
However, there are laws in place-laws strictly separating the affections of humans and angels-and Evangeline knows it. If the Guild found out about her love, she could be sent to Purgatory-or worse.
Unfortunately for them both, Liam’s prayer opened him up to more than just hearing Evangeline. All the demons in the known universe come calling to answer his prayer and one of them overheard Evangeline’s confession. Unless she can stop the demon from turning them into the Guild, it will mean the end of everything.
