It’s so nice when he’s naughty.
Stella Jackson would rather stab herself in the eye with her own stiletto than return to England. Especially in winter. But to fulfill her grandfather’s last wish, she has to spend Christmas at the estate she inherited from him…with the one man she wishes she could forget.
Self-made millionaire Evan Foss wants one thing from Stella—her estate. But thanks to their rocky past, he’s the last person she’ll sell to. So when she takes him up on a bet, with the estate as the prize, Evan can’t believe his luck. The only problem is that seeing her now, sexy and all grown up, tempts Evan to finish what started years ago between them.
"This is a very moving and sensual story, friends to lovers both determined to stay single after what they have been through but there are also secrets to uncover unknown to them and a love that grows stronger as they journey a very up and down path to a beautiful HEA. Ms. London never fails to bring out the strength and love between a hero and heroine and this one had me smiling thank you for another great story." ~Helen, Goodreads
