Peek Inside Dirty Deal

Professional matchmaker Serena Elliott helps clients find love, but when it comes to her own love life, she believes in getting in and getting out before things turn complicated. Bidding on army doctor Bryan Metcalf at a charity auction won't change that, no matter how hot things get. But Bryan wants to spend his leave in peace. If he can convince Serena to be his fake girlfriend, he might be able to. But there are other forces at work that believe these two belong together, and they just might find out that happily ever afters do exist.

He’s so much more than she bargained for…

Professional matchmaker, Serena Elliott spends her workdays helping clients find love. It’s the perfect gig. She gets to see the good part of the relationships…before things inevitably turn to crap. She leads her own love life the same way. Get in, and get out before things get too complicated. One date with sexy army doctor, Bryan Metcalf, won’t be enough to make her change her mind, no matter how hot it gets…

Bryan has had his share of crazy women and isn’t in the market for another relationship that ends by way of restraining order. When Serena Elliott gets into a bidding war for him at a charity bachelor auction, he’s a little worried. Turns out she’s just as anti-relationship as he is, and could be the solution to all his problems. If he can convince her to be his fake girlfriend, he just might be able to spend the rest of his leave in peace. Now if only he can stop thinking about that night on the beach…

But there are other forces at work that believe these two belong together, and they just might find out that happily ever afters do exist.

Christine Bell is one of those authors that I like a lot, so whenever she comes out with a new book, I automatically pick it up.
