DEBUT AUTHOR OF THE YEAR
Marlowe Jones owns one-third of Three Sisters Construction. Raised by her two older sisters, she’s spoiled rotten to the core. Her life is filled with shopping for expensive clothes and feeding her addiction for sex.
When a wealthy developer approaches her about selling the home her estranged mother willed to her, Marlowe sees a chance to learn more about the woman who died over twenty years ago. She plans to take her time going through the house filled with all of her mother’s belongings. The only problem is the pushy developer who’s become a thorn in Marlowe’s side.
Roque Coleman is wealthy, obstinate, and accustomed to getting what he wants. He earned his money the old fashioned way—he worked for every penny of it. He’s just entered into a seven-figure contract to revitalize an urban area and build a lucrative retail center. He’s on a tight deadline, and there’s only one person standing in his way: Marlowe Jones.
Roque has no time for spoiled brats, especially when he’s trying to single-handedly raise a teenage daughter. All he wants from Marlowe Jones is for her to sign the deed to her property over to him.
With Marlowe taking her sweet time and Roque making incessant demands, these two opposites find they have one thing in common—a fierce attraction to each other.
Will they be too stubborn to act on it? Or will they slow down and yield to love?
