He can run (or he can try). This good girl is going bad, and Alex is along for the ride. A zany, sweet, and sexy stand-alone romantic comedy from RWA Golden Heart finalist Cindy Procter-King.

Nikki St. James wants to get married more than anything. But what’s she to do when her fiancé spends his days sucking up to her rich father instead of helping with the simple task of, oh, setting a date? Why, fake a fling with the best man, of course!

Nikki is the first to admit that ambushing Alex Hart and whisking him off to secluded Lake Eden is a tad desperate. But maybe pretending she’s hot for the handsome history professor will kickstart the attention of her future groom. Besides, a sojourn at a lake cabin is exactly what uptight Alex needs. Not that Nikki cares what he needs or how sexy he is…

Alex is not onboard with Nikki’s plan. Sure, he’d love a break from his quest to achieve tenure at warp speed but getting kidnapped by a crazy blonde hardly tops his to-do list. If what he’s heard is true and Nikki is perfectly happy with her “open” engagement to his former college roommate, why bother getting married?

Quickly, Alex realizes Nikki isn’t a wild party girl. She’s cute, sweet—and faithful. Against his common sense, he’s falling for her. Should he spill the beans about her rat fiancé? Or will he ruin his own chance for a happy ending?

Read an Excerpt

"Forget the shirt. Give me the keys to your van."

"They won't do you any good."

"They'll do me plenty of good, I assure you." Like getting him the hell away from this wacky woman and back to his staid, predictable life.

"Okay, if you insist. They're on the kitchen counter."

He stormed to the kitchen and snatched up the keys. The tattered pants slapping his legs, he stomped outdoors. The ground had softened from last night's rain, and dirt clung to the soles of his socks. Too irritated to search in the van for his loafers, he climbed behind the wheel and jammed the key in the ignition.


He turned the key again. S.O.L. The damn engine was dead.

Grinding his teeth, he tromped back into the cabin. He found Nikki in the kitchen, calmly chopping green peppers.

"The van won't start."

"I know."

His teeth wore down another inch. "Would you also happen to know why?"

She smiled, still chopping. "I misplaced the distributor cap."

He groaned. Patience, Hart. She wants to drive you nuts.
