About the Book

If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the wedding! Except that the chemistry between wedding planner Piper Sheridan and her fake fiancé, ex-cop Declan Jones, is scorching hot…and in danger of combusting into something more real than either of them wants.  

Sparks fly when the sassy runaway bride recruits her reclusive landlord into her world of romance, tuxedoes, and happily-ever-after when she and Declan make a deal to fake an engagement for twenty-one scorching hot days. 

Being dubbed the Wedding Killer by Elite Bride magazine is the death knell to wedding planner Piper Townsend’s dream of making it big. Piper has a week to rehab her reputation or she’ll lose everything she has fought so hard for. The solution? A high-profile fake engagement to her grumpy, anti-social, deliciously hot landlord, of course.

Widowed ex-cop Declan Jones has no interest in being arm candy for his sassy, sparkly tenant, but when Piper proposes an offer he can’t refuse, it’s a chance he can’t pass up. When he begins to fall for Piper, he must make a choice: back out of their deal and walk away with his scarred heart intact, or stay and fight for the woman who is more afraid of love than he is. 

What happens when he discovers Piper has a dangerous secret which puts her at risk of the very threat that almost destroyed him before?
