Publisher Description

He’s an arrogant, reclusive artist, and a complete and utter prick. Why can’t I get him out of my head?

Ryan Raynard is driving me insane. First, he doesn’t deliver his paintings to my art gallery on time. Then, when I show up at his crumbling gothic mansion to collect them, he has the nerve to treat me like a piece of furniture.


Goddamn, him, if he wasn’t so hot ... that messy hair, those come-to-bed eyes, the body of a Michaelangelo statue … 


If only he saw me as something other than the mousy art curator who was trying to cramp his style. 


As if wrangling the temperamental artiste wasn’t enough, now I’m being chased by shapeshifting foxes, and a malevolent werewolf has put a price on my head. If I want to keep my job, and my life, I’m going to have to accept Ryan’s help. 


Ryan Raynard may be my only hope. If only I can keep my hands off him …

But he isn't cooperating and working through his assistant/butler isn't working either. They had agreed on the Art show but now the paintings are not being sent and Alex job is on the line. So she choices to go to Ryan's house. Ryan is a recluse who hasn't been seen in 10 years and lives in an old mansion time house. Alex argues her way into the house and when Ryan comes to greet her he thought she was to be a man due to her name. Ryan quickly tries to get away from her even being sharp and mean to her but he agrees she can get the paintings she needs.
