Ann Omasta is a USA Today bestselling author. 

Ann’s Top Ten list of likes, dislikes, and oddities: 
  1. I despise whipped cream. There, I admitted it in writing. Let the ridiculing begin. 
  2. Even though I have lived as far south as Key Largo, Florida, and as far north as Maine, I landed in the middle. 
  3. If I don't make a conscious effort not to, I will drink nothing but tea morning, noon, and night. Hot tea, sweet tea, green tea––I love it all. 
  4. There doesn't seem to be much in life that is better than coming home to a couple of big dogs who are overjoyed to see me. My other family members usually show significantly less enthusiasm about my return. 
  5. Singing in my bestest, loudest voice does not make my family put on their happy faces. This includes the big, loving dogs referenced above. 
  6. Yes, I am aware that bestest is not a word. 
  7. Dorothy was right. There's no place like home. 
  8. All of the numerous bottles in my shower must be lined up with their labels facing out. It makes me feel a little like Julia Roberts' mean husband from the movie Sleeping with the Enemy, but I can't seem to control this particular quirk. 
  9. I love, love, love finding a great bargain! 
  10. Did I mention that I hate whipped cream? It makes my stomach churn to look at it, touch it, smell it, or even think about it. Great––now I'm thinking about it. Ick!

Holt Mason doesn’t need to justify anything to anyone.


He wants Blaire. He pursues Blaire. And he gets Blaire because that’s how his life works.

Until it doesn’t.


What begins as a single night in a hotel room spirals into an unusual agreement. As late nights provide the space to trade secrets and walls come tumbling down, more is shared than just pillow talk.


They both should’ve known better. They should’ve shown restraint. Because when guards are dropped, hearts get hurt.
