Here's a teaser from Red Dirt Christmas
Digging deep for her anger, needing it to protect herself, Penny’s gaze found Nick’s and she hit him with a glare hot enough to fuel a solar cell for a year. ‘What do you call blindsiding me with that contract stuff? Forcing me to stay in this house with you is guerrilla tactics.’
He cupped her heel while his free hand began kneading her instep and the ball of her foot, exactly where she craved his touch.
A groan of pleasure welled up within her and spilled over before she could catch it.
‘Call it what you like, if that’s what it takes to keep you safe. And yes, I thought you’d have thoroughly read your contract before signing it. I thought you knew you were staying at Rhodadale and were happy about it.’
The hand holding her heel slid over her ankle and kept going. It pushed up beneath her jeans and his fingers dug into her calf, massaging just hard enough to distract her from the pain of her throbbing toe. And soft enough to elicit a string of feelings that zipped through gratitude for the distraction straight to desire. She needed him. Craved him more than her next breath, which slipped beyond her reach when he touched her like that.
Dear God, she’d missed his touch, missed him. This was why she hadn’t wanted to come. He slipped under her guard so easily because she craved him so much. ‘This isn’t safe.’
‘Of course it is, unless—’ He waited until her eyes opened and met his again. When had she closed them?
‘Unless you still want me. Do you, Pen?’
He's the King's man ... will he also be hers?

When Clementine's fiance goes missing before the announcement is made, she agrees to a fake engagement with his best friend to keep her parents happy.
