Driven career-woman Cassie McPherson has no time for romance. So in an effort to please her loving but nosy family, she hires an escort to take her to the family holiday gathering. Only the handsomeman who arrives at the last minute in a tuxedo is actually her brand new business rival, James Sutton. By the end of the evening, the ambitious pair are attracted to each other, and James is kicking himself for allowing her to mistake him for someone else. And Cassie is disappointed that her date could be the perfect guy except for that whole getting-paid-for-it thing. But it's even worse when Cassie finds out who he really is! The path to true love never does run smooth and includes sex advice from one senior citizen, two steamy nights of mistaken identity, three overly-protective brothers, and... to top it all off, a flaming Christmas tree!
Katie Lane's interest in romance was sparked in high school in the backseat of a '65 Mustang-okay, so maybe it wasn't romance as much as raging teenage hormones. Still, coupled with a wild imagination, those make-out sessions inspired many a steamy storyline along with a strong belief that true love does prevail. Katie lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with the owner of that Mustang and would love to hear from her readers.
