Handsome man in black suit touching sexy woman in lingerie


She thinks they’re a mistake

I’ve spent my whole life working toward my goals, being the best I can be at my job. Arrogant, persistent, pain in the skirt billionaire Colin Huntley isn’t going to change that, even if he is the hottest man I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. And pleasure is definitely something the man can deliver, without question. Our single, mind blowing night together was a mistake, though. A one-night stand brought on by a lapse in judgment. One I won’t make again, so long as I stay strong as he starts his chase. Because when Colin decides he wants something, he gets it. And he’s decided he wants me.

He always gets what he wants

Sloane McLaren may be the best VP I’ve ever had, but she taunts me every day in her tight little skirts and her librarian-fantasy glasses. Especially since that night. The one when I had her in my bed, in my shower, bent over my kitchen counter. I thought we were finally on the same page…until I woke up to cold sheets and an empty bed. She may assume it’s business as usual in the office, but I didn’t build my billion-dollar company on assumptions. I want her back in my bed, and I’m willing to play dirty to get her there.

One of the things I love most about the Temperance Falls novellas is the titles. The title is a tease and a promise like blurb. London Hale never fails to deliver a scintillatingly hot read. How on earth the authors who make up London Hale can produce such high quality reads in such a short space of time is astounding to me. Temperance Falls books are my guilty pleasure, I love how the authors throw so much into the mix, with such a steep build up and it’s all so believable.

Colin and Sloane were the type of couple that shouldn’t work as well as they do. She has so many barriers and is so pessimistic about relationships that I couldn’t help asking from the get go how Colin could EVER break through her walls.

‘Time to throw the professional barrier back up. which meant getting out of bed and putting clothes on. Soon. Maybe in a few minutes. If I could only–

“Stop it.” Colin pulled me closer and nuzzled the back of my neck. “I can hear you thinking. Quit trying to talk yourself out of staying in bed with me.”

Sloane is a unique blend of professional and smart mouth. As is typical London Hale, Sloane is able to fix her own issues when they arise and does so with style. Being a novella the story can only go so deep and the lust to love will happen quicker than it does in a full-length novel; however, London Hale never rushes it and it always feels natural and never, ever forced.

Personally, I enjoy when the authors introduce a secondary character in a book and then they become the main character in a new release. My view always shifts when this happens, I go from feeling like a mere spectator, to a kind of dirty voyeur. How any author can write a long series of books and not have it be yet another example of a ‘When Harry met Sally’ or ‘insert tab A into slot B’, by now is a true testament to their skills and abilities. I cannot wait for the next instalment ladies, thank you so very much!!!

‘All the while wondering how I got lucky enough to call this feisty, take-no-prisoners woman mine.  Wondering if she’d ever know only a woman as strong as her could happily bring me to my knees. Wondering how forever with her could possibly be long enough.’
