Kiss me on my neck, on both cheeks, right on my nose, on my fingertips, when I cry, in the rain, but mostly…kiss me and make it last.
The best books are like a kiss: sweet, scorching, soul-searing, tender, and thrilling.

This alluring alpha is swoon in spades, so romantic it’s almost as if he’s a poet from the Shakespearean times.

“I didn’t know Caleb at all, but in some unbelievably weird way, it very much felt like I did.”
Brooke has been badly burned from a painful past, one that has perhaps scarred her for life. Though she has surprisingly and miraculously found strength. Caleb can’t fight the immense attraction to this lovely lady.

“You’ve completely owned me since I first laid eyes on you.”
“You’re a banquet for my starving soul.”
How can Brooke resist Caleb who oozes charm, compassion, and chivalry? Caleb’s poignant words are pure poetry, so swoon-filled and sweet, which called to my heart and soul.
Their chemistry is electric, emotionally-charged, and irresistible.
“His hands and lips wandered everywhere, his touch gentle—but determined, his kisses reverent—but demanding. Perfection…as he awakened feelings in my I didn’t even know existed.”
I shouldered at these heated yet heart-felt words, burning my body, mesmerizing my mind. Caleb has awakened a passion in Brooke…a love for life…a budding love for this amazing alpha. Brooke is scared, frightened that her past could come crashing down, and she can’t sacrifice her heart if it’s going to get hurt.
“His care for me was something priceless and ironically put me in danger of falling for him. Danger…I couldn’t risk. I knew I couldn’t fall in love with Caleb Blackstone.”

Caleb, this Prince Charming, will walk to the ends of the earth to claim his Cinderella. This beautiful man and woman, inside and out, have pasts intertwined. Such sweet serendipity.

Billionaire Caleb Blackstone lives in the glamorous world of wealth and success, with every material luxury. But the moment he sees Brooke Casterley, none of that matters. Caleb is filled with a raw, undeniable need that he can’t ignore…for a girl who is so completely different from everything and everyone he’s ever known.
Only Brooke isn’t looking for love. She knows all too well just how much damage the wrong guy can do. Still, what sane, broke British girl can resist the charms of an incredibly sexy, chivalrous billionaire? What starts as flirtation quickly turns into all-consuming passion. Nothing could have prepared her for the searing heat of Caleb’s touch—or just how much she craves him.
Their whirlwind romance is the stuff of high-society fantasy—but for every moment of pleasure, there is a cost. Past mistakes and tragedy shadow them both…and falling for him might be the kind of trouble she can’t afford.
