They say that behind every great man, there's a great woman, and behind London's most powerful leaders, there stands only one--Alex Hyde, business coach par excellence. She's the woman they turn to for advice and strategy when the pressure gets too much. So when Alex gets a call offering an unbelievable sum to discreetly manage a family member on the board of an esteemed Scottish whisky company, it's business as usual. She can do this in her sleep. Only, she's never met anyone like Lochlan Farqhuar before. CEO of Kentallen Distilleries, he's also the son and heir of the company's founder, and a man for whom there is no "no." He's a maverick, and Alex needs to get inside his head before he brings the company to its knees. But as she tasks herself with finding a way in, she finds that for once, she's not the one in control. And when she stumbles across a chance discovery that changes everything, she's suddenly not so sure she should be.

Surprise Baby for Christmas

Baby, it's cold out. Nine months ago, I hooked up with the funniest, hottest, most amazing woman. It was supposed to be a vacation fling. She'd broken up with her ex. I don't do commitment. I was totally cool with "what happens in the skiing lodge, stays in the skiing lodge." And damn, did a lot happen. All over the place. In all kinds of positions. Over and over again. I was stupid to agree to her rules. Stupid to let her go. Then I see her walking down the fairy-lit street, a couple of weeks before Christmas. Our eyes meet and the chemistry is still hot enough to melt snow. She's even more gorgeous than I remember. She's radiant. I've got a bulge bigger than Santa's package, and all I want for Christmas this year... Is her. I'm not letting her go again. So what if she doesn't believe in love? So what if I've never "done" commitment. One look into those big blue eyes and I know she wants me too. We end up in the ER on Christmas Eve along with a few dozen drunks. But I'm sober as a judge when the doctor tells me, "She's in labor." ***This twist on the Secret Baby trope is an emotionally sweet, occasionally steamy debut novel with no cliffhangers, no cheating, and a guaranteed happily-ever-after. It includes mature situations and is perfect for romance-loving adults. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!***
