Alan Hyatt could do his job in his sleep, and when the Goddard Project sends him to investigate a case of high-tech espionage in the Vancouver film industry, he finds a perfect reason to work in bed. But sizzling actress Jillian Carlyle also happens to be his landlady, and she's got a hard-and-fast (so to speak) rule that keeps her from dating her renters. While Alan's cover as a reporter gets him close to all the suspects on the set of Jillian's sci-fi show, playing a background actor at her suggestion to get his story? Well, that's something else--but he's not about to turn down a red-hot redhead, even if she keeps throwing him curves.
Jillian just can't understand it. Sure, Alan is six-feet-something of chiseled ruggedness with gray eyes and an irresistible growl in his voice. But hello? She doesn't do relationships--even of the casual kind--with men who impact more than her senses. No one is getting a chance at her heart. Especially not one of her renters. Still, there's nothing wrong with enjoying Alan from afar--but not too far, or she wouldn't be able to fully appreciate his rock-hard abs when he's working out in the home gym. If only he didn't make her feel safe and oh so right when they touched.
USA Today bestseller, Lucy Monroe happily lives in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest where green isn't just the predominant color of nature, but a lifestyle choice for many. She thinks it all ties into the same hopeful attitude she finds in romance: the belief that happy endings are as real as tragedy and love carries more power than any other emotion. Sure it takes work and dedicated commitment, but that's what real romance is all about and she believes in it. Hot, gut-wrenching romance with alpha heroes and strong heroines that readers want to love and identify with.
She finds inspiration everywhere, but nowhere more consistently than in her own life-long passionate, but never boring love affair. Her own personal hero has proven time and again that alpha men know how to love and even a lifetime isn't long enough to enjoy that love when it's real.
Devoted to her family, she loves to spend time with them - her sisters and her daughters are her BFFs and always will be. Now that the fitness bug has hit them all, they're as likely to be found going for a power walk together as getting mani-pedis at her favorite salon.
She's as much a reader as an author and chances are your faves are in her TBR pile too. She's always delighted to meet and talk with other readers and hopes you'll stop by one of her social pages to chat.
