Love on the dotted line.
Self-made sports and entertainment agent Vivienne Tucker knows no one in the frozen town of Castle Ridge is going to melt her heart. No one can. She's been on her own for too long and while her skin might appear soft, she's as tough as nails.
Paul Bradford is a devoted family man to his younger siblings, whose heart and life belong to the town he grew up in. He's not used to taking time for himself or relationships, but after an anonymous one-night stand, he can't forget the ice queen who heated at his touch and ignited a passion he thought he'd lost. Until the next day when he spies her kissing someone else.
Vivienne never expected to see Paul again until she discovers he's the older brother of her newest client. An older brother who doesn't approve of her client's career choice. An older brother who stirs up desire she's tried so hard to forget.
When her client is involved in a possibly career-ending accident, Vivienne and Paul must put aside their differences and work together. But what if working together makes them both re-think the heartbreak contract they'd agreed upon?
This is an introductory novella for the Castle Ridge series. Other books in the series include The Romance Dance, The Christmas Match, The Flirtation Game, The Playboy Switch, and The Billionaire's Ploy.
