Always putting business before pleasure, Cassie McPherson works hard for her family's construction business. That might explain why she doesn't have a date for the company Christmas party. But it doesn't quite explain why she's crazy enough to hire an escort for the event or - crazier still - why she's dying to unwrap him like a present . . .
With whiskey-colored eyes and a killer smile, James is one gorgeous hunk who really knows how to fill out a tuxedo. He charms everyone, including Cassie. And when the night ends, the party doesn't stop. As Cassie falls, literally, into his bed, James falls head over heels in love. Now he has to figure out a way to tell her the truth: he's not an escort. He's her family's fiercest business rival. But all he wants for Christmas is her . . .
Lane s contemporary series launch sizzles from the moment Cassie McPherson s hired escort appears to accompany her to the company Christmas party. Cassie, a workaholic eager to avoid fix ups from her overcurious family, doesn t know that her date is really James Sutton, whose rival construction company threatens the McPhersons family business. Once he demonstrates his good looks, charm, and skill in the bedroom, she s determined to keep him around, until she and her protective brothers learn James s identity. The romance is inevitable, but Lane (Catch Me a Cowboy) makes the couple work for it, writing with warmth and humor. Readers will forgive the occasional contrived misunderstanding and adore James, Cassie, and the affectionately jocular McPhersons.
