Cameron Delgado is pro football royalty. The only daughter of the New York Vanguard’s star quarterback, Duke Delgado, she runs the international charity for children he founded before his death. When their local site needs a bigger space, she finds the perfect building—with one flaw. The leasing agent is none other than the man who broke her heart years ago.
Jordan Fawcett fell hard for Cam and even asked her to marry him. But she turned him down, and he left her and the Vanguard behind for another team in another state. Now, after an injury on the football field destroyed his pro career, he’s returned home with a new job and a grudge against the woman who abandoned him when he needed her most.
In the past, lies and betrayal have broken them both. Fate has given them another chance to make things right. Will they seize the opportunity? Or will tragedy steal their moment to win the game of love?
The Bonds of Matri-money
Renata Moon and Connell MacAllister lost more than a frivolous lawsuit in a Manhattan courtroom. Paying the settlement will probably force them to close their non-profit business. That is, until they learn about a new survivalist game show set in exotic Bali. Grand prize: one million dollars. The catch? The show is for newlyweds.
Nothing that a quickie marriage–in name only–can’t fix. But Renata and Connell didn’t anticipate they’d be linked by handcuffs the entire time they’re competing! Soon, spending days and nights with only a few inches of chain between them begins to stir feelings they never knew existed.
Before the competition ends, Renata and Connell will be forced to decide which means more to them: love or money.

And when he cleans up to reveal a super-hunk, he’s the perfect phony, doting boyfriend to escort Gianna to her ex’s upcoming wedding. Or maybe this time, love could be for real.
Until the truth comes out. For while Gianna dreams of happily ever after, Kyle will soon return to the life he left behind–a life that won’t include Gianna. Unless he can regain her trust and show her A Little Slice of Heaven.
