One Christmas wish—to be left alone.
Being a reformed “bad boy” is not what it’s cracked up to be. Ever since Ryker James’s testimony in court sent his more ruthless conspirators to jail, he’s been sequestered at The Cove as a recluse. He no longer leads an aimless life filled with bored, fashionable women and questionable adventures. It’s oddly freeing. Now, his brother, Paris, heads out to a remote island getaway for his honeymoon, and Ryker might get his wish to spend Christmas by himself—his only company, his guilt.
Unfortunately, his brother left him a parting gift: he’s setting Ryker up with the “dog sitter.”
No way will Audrey Mack take over that dog sitting job from her sweet—though perhaps thoughtless—friend, Clara . . . until she meets up with trouble at home. Her brother, Michael, has tangled with the wrong people and they target her next. Frightened and desperate, Audrey must go into hiding to save her brother from getting killed . . . and what better place than The Cove, guarded by its fortress of security? The last thing she wants or expects is to find love.
This Christmas, these two get exactly what they don’t want, and so much more.
