He’s got her breaking all the rules…

She made all the rules…

After juggling the demands of her career and the stress of caring for her ailing mother, high-powered corporate attorney Tori Anderson doesn’t have time for relationships—but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want to feel like a woman. When Brit Bencher, NYC’s most eligible bachelor, offers a no-strings attached fling, it sounds like exactly what she needs. But what will she do when Brit decides he won’t take “one night stand” for an answer?

…until he started breaking them.

Brit Bencher will do anything to take care of his family, even seduce Tori Anderson in the hopes of getting her to reveal confidential information about one of her clients. But for the first time in his life, he finds he’s falling for a woman. When Tori uncovers his lies, will he lose his chance with her forever?



"Inara Scott's Rules of Negotiation is everything I love in a book-smart, snappy dialogue, a hero to die for and heroine to root for. Wicked, sexy and fun, with lots of heat and plenty of heart. This is one deal you'll want to negotiate ASAP!"
-Susan Sey, award-winning author of Money Honey (Berkley).

"Inara pens a gorgeous, sexy hero in Brit, a hero with flaws who isn't afraid to admit them when it counts. [H]eroine Tori is a feisty, upfront heroine who I loved for her forthrightness, her confidence in her work and her vulnerability in her personal life. Together, these two strong willed characters equal fireworks!"
-Nicola Marsh, USA Today Bestselling Author.

"Reading this made me think about what dreams I may want to resurrect and also who I am trying to make happy. Is it me or am I doing what I think is expected of me? This is an author I will definitely be reading again." 
-Patti, Romancing the Book

"I adored this book. The writing is powerful with a beautiful style that just kept the pages turning. I completely identified with the strength of the heroine, fell in love with the sexiness of the hero, and rooted for them the whole way through." 
-Jennifer Probst, USA Today Bestselling Author

If I had to use a few words to sum up Inara Scott's debut category romance, they would be 'category romance with substance.'

First of all, I have to say I've always been a fan of romance novels if they're well written.

My Review:

The thing that made this book for me was Tori’s character. She has such a bristly, harsh personality, but that is only because she’s scarred from her childhood. Her father was a good-looking, smooth-talking guy who left her and her mother high and dry when Tori was eight. All her life,... ...more

About the author

Inara Scott

Inara wrote her first book when she was fifteen--a romance called "A Wild and Stormy Passion" that featured swordplay, a pirate heroine, and plenty of naughty bits (all of which came entirely from her imagination). Since then, she's written romances of the category, contemporary, and fantasy varieties. Her books are sinfully sensual and deeply emotional. Inara reserve the right to enjoy country music, puppies, and love-at-first sight. When she's not writing, she enjoys to spending time wandering around in the woods and has been known to occasionally dress up her little white dog in princess costumes.
