TWO MEN FROM HER PAST ARE ABOUT TO BECOME HER FUTURE.
After a relationship turns sour in the worst way possible, Angela Kenzie flees to her childhood home leaving her job and cheating ex behind her.
Content to spend time at home licking her wounds and eating comfort food she unexpectedly runs into her college ex-boyfriend who happens to be the town police chief. Even more shocking is her high school ex-boyfriend is now the coach of the local college basketball team.
Drawn to both powerfully sexy men, Angela doesn’t want to have to make a choice: the cop or the coach. They spark a desire in her that she thought was long gone. They both want her body and soul, is she brave enough to surrender to two men?
HER BODYGUARD OR THE MUSICIAN…HOW WILL SHE CHOOSE?
Heir to her family’s hotel legacy, Kat McMaster is ready to take her rightful place as head of the most prestigious McMaster hotel. The only thing standing in her way is her Grandfather’s final test: she must prove her skills by resurrecting The Majestic a run-down property in New Orleans.
Being well known puts a target on her back so she is assigned a strong, silent, incredibly hot ex-soldier as her security detail. One look at her bodyguard and her blood turns hot. If the lingering looks he keeps giving her is any indication the feeling is mutual.
About to give in to her desire Kat meets the The Majestic’s passionate manager. Manager by day musician by night he makes it known that he wants Kat in his bed.
A strong woman who knows her own mind, she wants The Majestic to be great again and both men to be hers – in her bed and by her side – but will the unconventional relationship work or will everything she has ever worked for fall apart?
Angela turned to see Hunter approaching. A few seconds later, he was in the chair next to Jake, and Angela had locked the door again, making sure the CLOSED sign was clearly visible.
“I don’t want anyone disturbing us.” She went around her desk and sat, keenly aware of the image she was presenting.
My world. My rules.
The two men glanced at each other before focusing on her.
Jake was the next to speak. “So that’s it? One date and you’ve decided?”
Hunter glanced at him. “One date might have been enough.” He smirked. “What can I say—I’ve got the magic touch.”
Angela put up her hand, stalling the argument. The butterflies in her stomach spiraled up to hurricane levels. “First, I love you both. I do.” She smiled at each man in turn. “And I appreciate that you gave me this time to set my mind right. After Eric—” The name caught in her throat. “After Eric, I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to get it together again, open my heart to anyone. Finding the two of you here was scary and amazing at the same time.” She entwined her fingers, pressing them hard together. “After being played for a fool by Eric, I wasn’t sure about what I wanted, what I needed out of my life. Out of being home here, in Glen Barrow.” Angela glanced up at the framed diplomas on her wall, her qualifications out in the open for all to see. “I started this business and I love it. I love being here, at home, with the people who need and appreciate me and my legal skills.”
Both men nodded in turn, keeping silent.
Angela heard her pulse pounding in her ears, loud and demanding.
“Last night I thought a good long time about what I want out of a relationship. What I need to make me happy.” She forced herself to speak slowly and carefully, afraid of racing through her rehearsed speech. “And I figured it out.”
Both Jake and Hunter leaned in, hanging on each word.
“What I want, what I need—” She looked at each man in turn. “—is you.”
Silence filled the office.
Hunter blinked rapidly, processing the words.
Jake frowned, his lips pressed into a tight line.
She crossed her arms and waited.
Jake was the first to speak. He jabbed a thumb at the man beside him. “‘You’ me or ‘you’ him?”
Angela held her breath for a second before replying. “Both of you.”
