Dylan Locke knows that pining over the young ingenue Audrey Lind is pointless. He can’t offer her what she wants. He definitely can’t give her what she needs. Thank goodness she’s half a world away, and he doesn’t have to deal with his attraction head on.
But fate has other plans for him, and when Audrey once again lands in his path, it’s only too easy to fall back into their easy rhythm. And then their easy banter. And of course, each other’s arms.
He tells himself nothing has changed. She still wants forever, and he still thinks tomorrow is long enough. But watching her search isn’t as easy as he thought it would be, and now Dylan must figure out if he’s really the love Scrooge he professes to be or if he’s been Fate’s willing victim all along.

The “Sweet” conclusion is here!
Sweet Fate is our sweet conclusion to the Dirty Sweet duet. Dylan is still being as stubborn as usual. Audrey is just trying to move on. The only problem? It seems that she cannot move on without Dylan being a constant now that he is back in her life. The chase of a lifetime with these two will have the wheels in you head turning. Will these two finally get their HEA? The chemistry was never the problem. The commitment is frightening. But I only can wonder if Dylan is more afraid of losing the love of his life. If you have read the first book of this duet, you need to find out how their story ends! I loved this duet! A great weekend or late night read!!
Grumpy Cat No More
I was laughing so hard when I read Laurelin describe Dylan as a grumpy cat and thought it very fitting! But Kismet (aka Donovan) won out in bringing these two together in the end. I’m glad Dylan realized before it was too late (if a little too close to too late) that loving Audrey was a gift, not a curse. **Swoon**
“I dreamed her everywhere around me.”
Dylan and Audrey are a sensual and passionate couple who have uncontrollable feelings for each other that cannot be denied. They are as different as night and day, which makes their story that much more intriguing. Audrey is fun, where Dylan is serious, she is sunlight, where he is a foggy night, and Audrey is colorful and vivacious where he is dark and brooding. Their pent up emotions have exploded to the surface and their sexy repartee has given way to a reawakening of the memories they shared of the week they spent together. A chance encounter with Audrey made Dylan realize that he couldn’t live without her and having her near him again was a dream come true. He had been so lonely without her; his mind consumed with thoughts of Audrey every minute of every day but he didn’t do commitments so they would have to remain friends, even if it killed him. Any time with Audrey was priceless because he desperately needed to feel her goodness as it penetrated his cold heart. Every word and sentence that Laurelin Paige wrote to tell the tale of Dylan and Audrey was sensuous, volatile and enticing. It was impossible to stop reading because I was caught up in their swirling emotions and desperate desires. Dylan was a man who kept his true feelings hidden from Audrey, and would rather be alone than admit how he felt about her. Audrey believed that her relationship with Dylan was kismet; written in the stars, destined to be soulmates, together forever, and their journey was filled with heartache and denial, romance and passion. We can only hope that they can figure it out before it is too late.
