Being in love with someone who doesn’t love you back sucks.
Being in love with your brother’s best friend sucks even more, because
you know it can never happen. How tragic is that?
I’ve been in love with Lincoln Andrews since we were kids and he stuck
up for me against my brother and played tea parties with me in the treehouse.
I’ve also avoided him for the past year because he broke my heart…more than
once.
Now we’ve been thrown together at a tropical resort to celebrate my
parents’ second wedding, and things are intense and getting worse, no thanks to
an insane plan my friends cooked up to get me my dream man.
No one else even comes close to what Linc means to me. He’s always
there for me, but is it because he cares for me too—or only because I’m his
best friend’s little sister?
It’s time I find out once and for all…but what if our crazy plan blows
up in my face and ruins everything?

Excerpt
I smiled at
her. It wasn’t a friendly smile. It was sinister. Her eyes widened, and she moved
back on the rock, knowing I was coming for her.
“You better
lose that dress real quick, Princess. I’d hate for it to get wrecked.” I crept
closer. Panic marred her features. She knew all too well that I meant what I
said.
“You
wouldn’t.” She held her hands out to stop me.
“Come on,
you know me better than that. You’re getting in this water. It’s just up to you
whether your pretty dress is coming in with you.” I turned my back to her. “You
have until the count of three. If you’re not in the water by then, I’m turning
around regardless of whether you’re still dressed or not.”
“Linc, I’m
not skinny-dipping with you.” Her voice quivered a touch with nerves.
I chuckled.
“No one said anything about skinny-dipping, but please don’t let me stop you if
you feel inclined to swim naked.” I reached for the waistband of my boxers, and
intending to mess with her a little more, I removed them completely. “I might
just join you.” I threw my underwear over my shoulder and onto the rock.
I was
surely going to hell for this.
“Linc! Oh,
my god!” I looked over my shoulder at her to find her face buried in her hands.
“To the
count of three, Indie,” I warned one last time.
She huffed.
What was I
doing? She was Nate’s sister.
“One.”
And she had
Jack-ass for a boyfriend.
“Two.”
She was
completely off limits.
“Three.”
It was
silent. I turned to find her standing on the rock, twisting her hands nervously
in front of her. Her dress…at her feet.
I gulped.
Lace. White lace. Matching.
Hell.
I was going to hell.
And I didn’t care. I didn’t care that she was
Nate’s sister. I didn’t care that she had a boyfriend. I didn’t care that she
was entirely off limits. She was mine. Always had been.
And one way or another, I wasn’t
leaving this island without getting what I wanted.

Scandalous #4
Caroline Linden
Releasing March 29th, 2016
Avon Books
Olivia Townsend is in trouble and out of options. Pursued by a desperate man in search of a lost treasure, which she doesn’t have, she’s got only two things in her favor: her late husband’s diary, which she was never meant to see… and the man who was her first-and only-love. Losing him broke her heart, though she’s been careful to hide it for the last ten years. But when he comes to her aid and vows to stand by her this time, no matter what, she can’t help but hope things will be different this time.

James Weston has blamed himself for letting Olivia down when she needed him years ago, and he will not do it again. Fortunately, his unusual life has equipped him well to outsmart the villain chasing Olivia. Unfortunately, being so near her again threatens to expose every secret in his heart…even those that should stay hidden forever.

A tapping beside her broke into her thoughts. She glanced out the window and saw the boy who had lured her into trouble, grinning as he crouched out of sight next to the carriage. “Do you walk in the woods?” he whispered.

Alarmed, she shook her head, even though she did walk in the woods every chance she got. Telling him that would only cause her more trouble.

Disappointment flickered over his face. “Oh well.” He stepped back. “Good-bye, then.” He walked back to his family. Olivia eyed them curiously. The father was tall and lean, and his wife was very pretty, with a gloriously beautiful gown. Two girls about Daphne’s age stood beside her, although the blond girl was fidgeting in boredom and ran up to her brother as he approached them. He laughed at whatever she said, the carefree sound floating back to Olivia’s ears. Neither of his parents reproved him for laughing on Sunday.

The Herbert coachman finally snapped his whip and set the horses in motion. Olivia watched the Westons as the coach drove away. Upstarts they might be, but they looked like happy ones.

She had almost forgotten the impudent boy several days later, when she finished her lessons and was able to slip out of the house. Mother wouldn’t approve, but Mother had gone into town to the dressmaker, and Miss Willets, the governess, was fond of sneaking a glass of sherry and having an afternoon nap when Mother was away. This suited the girls quite well. Daphne retreated to the nursery with her dolls, where she fashioned new dresses for them out of scraps of Mother’s discarded gowns, and Olivia stole a book from the library and headed for the woods. Mother said Shakespeare was vulgar and too exciting for ladies, which made Olivia eager to read his plays, even though she was forced to hide away to do so.

There was a quiet little glen not too far from Kellan Hall, the Herbert home, with a fallen tree and enough sun to be pleasant without being hot. Settled on the tree, with her feet propped on a nearby stone, Olivia had just reached the magnificent scene where Romeo revealed himself to Juliet and professed his love in words that would rend the heart of any sentient being . . . when someone spoke behind her.

“I thought you didn’t walk in the woods.”

She gave a little scream and dropped her book. “You—you,” she spluttered. “I am not walking!” It was a stupid thing to say, but he had interrupted at a very inopportune moment. Would Juliet return Romeo’s love?

“Oh, did you come into the woods by carriage?” He jumped over the tree trunk and scooped up the book. “Romeo, eh? Do you like it?”

She glared at him and reached for the book. “Yes.”

He handed it back. “It wasn’t one of my favorites. My sisters wanted to act it out, but Penelope kept giggling when she was supposed to be dying.”

Olivia’s eyes widened. Dying? Which character died? She hoped it wasn’t Juliet. “Don’t tell me any more!”

“I liked that Henry V, though,” he went on. “Smashing good battle. I’m James, by the way. James Weston.”

She gave him a reproachful look. It wasn’t proper for a gentleman to introduce himself to a lady, and he ought to know that, even if he wasn’t a gentleman. “I know.”

He grinned. In the sunlight his brown hair had an auburn hue, and his eyes were sharp and lively. He couldn’t be much more than thirteen or fourteen, but he was already tall in Olivia’s view. “And you’re Miss Olivia Herbert of Kellan Hall.”

“Yes.” She lowered her gaze to her book, hoping he would go away.

“So,” he said after a moment, “if you only walk in the woods to find a place to read, you must know about the waterfall.”

Her eyes stopped taking in the words on the page. “Waterfall?” she asked, intrigued in spite of herself.

He tilted his head and gave her a sly smile. “I can show you.”

Slowly she closed the book. “Is it far?”

“No.”

And before she knew it, she was following him along a winding track through the trees, to where a small stream splashed over a fall of rocks. It was no taller than Olivia herself, but it brought a smile to her face. She’d lived at Kellan Hall all her life and never discovered it.
