It was supposed to be casual sex between two strangers. No strings. No obligation. No excuses the next morning…
Until she wakes up engaged.
Gwen’s heard it all, and lived half of it, when it comes to dates gone wrong. Saying she’s jaded about love is the ultimate understatement. But sometimes a gal wants a more physical connection than her battery-operated-boyfriend can provide. Solution—one night stand.
Between running a multi-billion dollar lingerie company, and fighting for custody of his daughter, Brad doesn’t have time for things like long-term relationships. Especially since his ex has convinced the judge that his sleeping around creates a bad environment for their child. When his ex-wife drops off their girl without warning one morning and catches him in bed with Gwen, he introduces her as his fiancée, rather than risk another notch against him in court.
Now, two people who don’t believe relationships last more than a month, let alone in happily ever after, are putting on the ultimate performance and struggling to keep their hearts separate from their engagement. If they fail, the consequences could ruin more lives than just theirs.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was having a conversation with my spouse one day about a random, imaginary anti-romance blogger, who had grown her site by posting stories about dates gone bad. Suddenly we'd spun up a love interest for her, who wanted to buy her domain, a series of bad date stories, and an entire loose outline.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
We already had the anti-romance blogger, since she was at the heart of the inspiration for the book. I needed a hero for her to fall in love with, and he just happened to be the business man whose lingerie company had an almost identical company name, and was tired of losing search engine hits to 'the enemy'.
Gwen propped herself up on one elbow and looked down at Brad. She was going to do this before she lost her nerve. "Do you want to get engaged?"
"Did you just propose to me?" He brushed a loose strand of hair from her forehead, while he studied her face.
"I supposed that's what we could tell people." She worried the inside of her lip with her teeth, doubt sinking in. "I mean, not for real, of course. But you need to prove your life is stable, and I need to prove I'm not planning on dying an old spinster." The way he furrowed his brow wiped away the last of her bravado. "Never mind. I don't know what I'm saying. Post-coital bliss or something."
His smile returned, though not full force. "I don't think I've ever screwed a woman so hard she wanted to marry me."
"You don't think, but you might have? Besides, I said engaged." Gwen tried to keep her tone light. What was she thinking? Bad, bad idea. Straight-out-of-a-stupid-movie kind of bad.
"No, I'm certain that's never happened before. Yeah, all right. Let's do it."
"Wow. That sounded less than enthusiastic." Though she'd dismissed the idea, and it wouldn't be more than for show anyway, his reluctance dug deep.
