About the Author: Catherine Mulvany

Catherine Mulvany’s life is a fairy tale. Okay, a fractured fairy tale. At age eleven she fell hopelessly in love with a little town in eastern Oregon. With a population under fifty—counting the cats and dogs—the town didn’t even qualify as one-horse, but the place had character. Character and an abundance of arkayesses.

Never heard of an arkayess? Neither had Catherine. But on the first day of her visit, she became intimately acquainted with one particularly gruesome member of this species—also known as the road-killed snake. Arkayess. RKS. Road-killed snake. Get it?

She did. The hard way.

Catherine was walking along a side street, minding her own business, when the orneriest boy in town came riding down the road on his bike, swinging a dead snake like a lariat. “You’d better run, kid,” he yelled. “I’m gonna wrap this arkayess around your leg!”

She ran.

He followed. (Are you getting that whole fairy tale connection? Knight on a white charger equals boy on a bike?)

When he got close enough, he took aim, then let that snake fly. It cartwheeled through the air with deadly accuracy to coil itself around her bare leg.

The boy was almost as shocked as Catherine; he hadn’t expected to hit his target. So to make it up to her, he proposed...and it only took him nine years to do it. She accepted, of course, and they’ve lived happily ever after in their very own castle.

All right. So it’s really a three-bedroom ranch house, but it has an irrigation ditch out back, and that’s practically a moat, right?

In jeans and leather jacket he looked handsome as the devil—and just as dangerous....

With his sexy mouth, silver-gray eyes, and drop-dead dazzling body, undercover cop Brody Hunter was perfect for the job Mallory Scott had in mind: playing escort at her double-crossing sister's wedding! Convinced she was safe in Brody's arms, Mallory was shocked to discover just how perilous—and pleasurable—his kisses could be. Could her carefully planned game of let's pretend make them both winners in the end?

Funny, steamy, and just this side of wicked, Catherine Mulvany's outrageous romp of a romance offers a potent look at one woman's hunt for the man of her dreams! She'd vowed to hire herself a hunk so gorgeous her man-stealing sister would turn green with envy, but once she found the right man for the job, would she dare offer him a lifetime contract?
