From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black comes a new story in her More Than Words series…
Can I convince her our hot but temporary engagement should last forever?
I’m Stephen Lund, confirmed bachelor…and son of a successful billionaire whose sins I can’t forget—or forgive. After he delivered an ultimatum to either get over his transgressions or get out of the family business, I put space between us with a temporary getaway to Maui. My rental’s sexy caretaker, Skye Ingram, is a beautiful distraction. Yeah, it’s a terrible time to start a fling, but I can’t help wanting to give her every bit of pleasure she’s willing to take.
When Skye needs a date to her ex-boyfriend’s wedding, I’m game to play her pretend fiancé. The jerk should see what he passed up…and that I’m holding her now. But our pretend engagement begins to feel real. Our passion certainly is. So are the consequences. When I’m confronted with the reality that our lives are now irrevocably entwined, I have to choose between leaving Skye to return to the life—and wealth—I’ve always known or abandoning everything familiar to start over with the woman who awakened my heart.
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
Confirmed bachelor and son of a successful billionaire, Stephen Lund has to decide if get over his father’s transgressions or get out of the family business and he decides to use a temporary getaway in Maui to do just that. Skye needs someone to play her pretend fiancé at her ex-boyfriend’s wedding. But soon the pretend engagement begins to feel real and Stephen is confronted with the reality that their lives are irrevocably changed and the decision he had to make is now one where he has to choose between returning to the life and wealth he’s always known or abandoning everything familiar to start over with the woman who awakened his heart.
A whirlwind romance that is sweet yet poignant and full of passion and anticipation. The characters are strong, compelling and easily captures readers by the heart as some heavy duty emotional turmoil flows from the pages. One believes the other is too good to be true and the other is a workaholic, so when trouble strikes it’s obvious to Skye that she needs to kick Stephen to the curb and handle things on her own, no matter how much it hurts. Suspense builds as the reader wonder if this couple will be able to overcome their differences and reach their happily ever after. The story is on the fast side as it is a short one but this story hits right in the heart as the author brings these characters to vivid life and the conclusion to this passionate and sweet romance is so very swoon worthy.
MORE THAN PLEASURE YOU is #5.5 in the MORE THAN WORDS series.
