'I'm insisting you date her. Five dates together, then I'll have this surgery.'

Billionaire CEO Connor Stewart is being blackmailed. By his own grandmother, no less, who is refusing to have life-saving surgery unless Connor dates Mia Simms, his dull and dowdy marketing employee.

For Violet's sake, Connor agrees to the crazy scheme. There's no risk of breaking his 'short-term only' rule with Mia Simms; she's not the kind of woman Connor is interested in ... and he's sure she's hiding something. He just doesn't expect it to be delicious curves and a firecracker personality.

Mia Simms is hiding something, and it's much more dangerous than her looks. All she wants to do is live life in the safety of the shadows and avoid discovery. But perhaps a short-term fling is exactly what she needs to remind her to live.

But what if Violet is right to push them together? Can Mia trust Connor enough to let him see the real person behind the facade she's built? Or is Violet's little scheme about to put both their lives in danger?

About the author(s)

USA Today bestselling author Alyssa J. Montgomery lives with her husband and three children on a five-acre property nestled into a mountain range south of Sydney, Australia, and enjoys having the space for gardens, a dog, horses, goats and chickens. Visits from the native wildlife (echidnas, wallabies and a variety of native birds) are particularly welcome ... although visits from native wildlife with scales and fangs aren't met with quite as much enthusiasm!
