Sick of the constant betrayal, I’ve sworn off men for good.
But there’s no cure for my attraction to Dr. Nicholas Barnes.
I’m a magnet for egotistical playboys. It’s been years since I’ve let anyone in.
Pursuing me is merely a challenge for this overconfident ladies’ man.
What else could this handsome, arrogant surgeon want with me?
I have great friends and a job in the ER I love.
A good night’s rest is what I need. One little sleeping pill couldn’t hurt. Could it?
But this irresistible doctor even seduces me in my dreams.
It’s a delicious temptation I don’t want to stop.
Yet what happens when the line between fantasy and truth becomes blurred?
When you can no longer live with the constant deprivation?
This man is beautiful. He’s charming.
And he could be the love of my life or my complete destruction.
Everything about Katarina Kelly tells me to run.
But this brazen, brown-eyed beauty has brought me to my knees.
As an accomplished surgeon, I’ve managed my life with delicate precision. Meeting my needs without letting anyone get close has been a complex operation.
I have no problem finding sultry women. Women without enough baggage to fill a jet plane.
So why Kat?
This broken, bewitching minx is the challenge I never saw coming.
The best night of my life and she walked away without looking back.
So why chase someone who’s nothing but trouble?
Because I already know, without her my life will never be the same.
This woman is enchanting. She’s stunning. She could give me the future I didn’t know I wanted or leave me fractured and alone.
Turmoil is brewing, a product of past and present.
Could my decisions cost me everything?
There’s no denying it. I need Nick Barnes like I need oxygen to breathe.
This battle is something I no longer want to win.
I’m grabbing hold of my happily ever after if it’s the last thing I do.
How do you start over when betrayal and lies are all you know?
I’m taking a risk knowing she can break me.
This fiercely independent woman is determined to handle this her way.
Is there a chance for us to survive this when the surgeon is the one who’s fractured?
But I cannot live without her. She’s my everything.
We are headstrong. We are fiercely passionate.
And when we are one, we are stronger.
He calls me Elsa.
Ironic given he’s the one who can deliver a frosty reception.
Yet between the hot physique, smoldering sex appeal, and his warm, sweet smile,
this ice queen is melting for him a little more each day.
I pray he’s not like the rest, giving me the cold shoulder once the challenge is met.
Because I’m ready for the fairy tale.
When you’re benched from your professional baseball career, you learn how cold the world is.
I’d lost my dream job and my girl. Never again.
Until this Nordic beauty slowly chips away at my resolve.
There’s no stopping it. I’m falling hard for this elusive princess.
But can I trust this fantasy girl could be my forever and not another nightmare?
Because Ava deserves a happily ever after, and I’m just the man for the job.
