He’s a billionaire in need of a wife …

And I’m his ex who can’t say no to him.

Ten years ago Carson Knight was my one great love, but he abandoned me without a trace.

Now he’s a billionaire single-dad in need of a temporary wife.

And he’s at my house on one knee with a proposal …

Marry him, so he’s more likely to win full custody of his daughter, keeping her safe from her unstable mother. In return, he’ll take care of the medical expenses for a surgery my father needs to survive.

Reluctantly, I agree to tie the knot, on one condition. Once those custody papers are signed, we go our separate ways. Because he’s even more gorgeous, charming, and sweeter than he was back then, and I don’t trust myself not to fall for my fake husband.

Especially when I hear him say “my wife.”

Or feel his hands on my skin. Taste his kiss or see the way he looks at me with those blue eyes and know that our carefully crafted rules will shatter.

Right alongside my heart.

EXCERPT:

I’m going to get my daily steps in just from all the pacing I’ve done the last hour.

I went out to the sanctuary, fed the animals, spent time with the chickens, and then came in to prep, as Phoebe called it. I washed, scrubbed, buffed, shaved, and cleaned every orifice of my body. Not that I have any plans for Crew to see any part of my body, but . . . a girl has to be ready for anything.

Not only that, but I needed to do something to take up my time because otherwise, I’ll sit here coming up with a million scenarios about why he had to come see me.

Today.

Urgently.

And with a problem.

I look at my phone, anxious because he should be pulling in at any minute. Instead of meeting at the diner, it’s so much easier to just come here. So, Grady is driving him to the house.

So freaking awkward.

Headlights shine down the drive to where my cottage is, and I look in the mirror for the five hundredth time.

“You are a confident, smart, and amazing woman. Don’t be a bumbling fool.”

My reflection doesn’t exactly show that same level of confidence, but the knock on the door says it’s time to fake it.

I walk out to the living room and open the door. Crew is there, in a three-piece suit, looking so damn hot I might be burned just from being close to him.

His dark brown hair is pushed back and to the side. The dimple on his left cheek looks deeper than yesterday, but there’s a worry in his crystal blue eyes that has me concerned.

“Hey,” I say softly.

“Hey. Sorry to drop in like this.”

I shake my head. “No worries. Come in.”

He turns back to my brother. “Thanks for the ride. I’ll have Cliff meet me out here to drive back. I know you have the kids and it might be late.”

Grady looks like he’s ready to crawl out of his skin. Crew is both his boss and he delivered him to his little sister. I grin, loving this moment. “Bye, Grady!”

I pull Crew in and close the door. I laugh a little and Crew stares at me with a smile. “Enjoying yourself?”

“That moment was priceless. He wanted to rip your head off, but couldn’t. Oh, if only I had recorded it.”

Crew chuckles. “As an older brother, I can imagine exactly how that must’ve felt.”

I shrug. “Serves him right.”

Crew looks around my cottage, shaking his head. “You know, this place is a hundred percent you.”

“How so?” I ask, not sure if that’s a compliment or not.

“It’s just warm, comforting, filled with everything you’d want a home to be. The couch looks inviting and well loved. Everything is in great condition and it’s a place you want to be in.”

Definitely a compliment. “I’m sure yours is a dream.”

“Mine is a museum. I hate the couch, it’s fucking hard as a rock, but the designer was adamant it was the best piece for the space. Everything is spotless. You’d never know a human lives there.”

“Still, I’m sure it’s stunning.”

Crew walks over to my sofa and sits, melting into the broken-in furniture. “No, this is stunning and a dream, Brynn. This is a home.”

I move over, taking the seat next to him. “Why did you fly out here?” I ask, not really able to hold back.

His beautiful Nordic eyes meet mine. “Marry me.”
