He’s always wanted her. Now’s his chance to claim what’s his.
School teacher Marceline Bellini gave up everything—men, sex, anything resembling a social life—to raise her young daughter. To be the perfect parent. But when she attends an engagement party in her standard stick-in-the-mud mode, her friends begin plying Marceline with shots. Just enough to convince her that a little fun doesn’t sound like a bad idea… and having some naughty fun is an even better one.
Like finding herself deliciously pressed against a dark alley wall by the very familiar and über-hot bod of her best friend’s older brother.
After years of waiting in painful silence, cop Aaron Robinson finally has Marceline’s attention. And man, does he have it. But nothing could have prepared either of them for the rush of fiery lust between them. So he’ll just have to convince Marceline he’s for real. And that a rainy, lust-fuelled romp is the first step to a lifetime of completely imperfect happiness…

A romance novella has a short amount of pages to draw you in and capture your heart. His to Keep was a second chance romance with just enough sweet and spicy to do just that. This story is part of a series but it’s not necessary to read the first book to enjoy this one.
Marcy’s main focus is life... ...more
A hot, sweet and light romantic novella!!!! Though the storyline was predictable, I loved how Katee Roberts has managed to weave a sexy romance with a splash of sweetness!!! This book was definitely my feel good warm fuzzy feeling book. Loved it!!!!
