College drop-out Roxy Cumberland moved to New York with dreams of becoming an actress, but her dwindling bank account is quickly putting the kibosh on that fantasy. To make some quick cash, she signs up to perform singing telegrams. Her first customer is a gorgeous, cocky Manhattan trust-funder if she ever laid eyes on one. And what could be more humiliating than singing an ode to his junk, courtesy of his last one night stand? Maybe the fact that she's dressed in a giant pink bunny costume…
After a night out to celebrate winning his last case, lawyer Louis McNally the Second isn't prepared for the pounding in his head or the rabbit serenading him from the front door. But the sassy wit and sexy voice of the girl behind the mask intrigue him, and one look at her stunning face—followed by a mind-blowing kiss against his doorjamb—leaves Louis wanting more.
Roxy doesn't need a spoiled rich boy who's had everything in life handed to him on a Tiffany platter. But there's more to Louis than his sexy surface and he's determined to make Roxy see it...even if it means chasing her all over NYC.
Bailey launches the Broke and Beautiful contemporary series with the gripping story of an independent woman and a generous man. Roxy Cumberland has no time for spoiled trust-fund boys who can sleep in on a workday. So sexy lawyer Louis McNally II, who cares about people and doesn't think his money makes him superior, is a complete surprise to her. Louis falls hard for Roxy and is driven to do whatever he can to make her happy, but he has to step carefully around her defenses as he coaxes her to stay with him. Roxy, an aspiring actress, doesn't want her big break to come from charity or favors, or because she slept her way to the role. Either she makes it on her talent, or she doesn't make it at all. Even when she's reduced to delivering singing telegrams, she sticks to her principles. Their backgrounds couldn't be more different, but they fit each other personality-wise and are explosive in bed. Honest emotions and real passion lead to slightly rough and aggressive sex scenes that never feel gratuitous. Readers will appreciate these highly sympathetic leads and their powerful story of mutual self-discovery.
