A full-length, standalone romance from the New York Timesbestselling author of Archer's Voice.
Kira Dallaire is desperate.
Some challenges in life seem too hard to overcome. With little money, and even fewer options, the quick-witted and vibrant twenty-two-year-old needs to reinvent herself. Known for her generous heart and impulsive personality, she devises a survival plan, possibly her most outrageous idea yet.
Grayson Hawthorn is losing hope.
Some obstacles in life seem too hard to overcome. Betrayal definitely being one of them. With limited capital, and dwindling resources, he is attempting to resurrect his failing family vineyard, a self-imposed vow seemingly destined to fail. That is until a young woman enters his office with an outlandish, unexpected proposition impossible to refuse.
What begins as a temporary business arrangement, soon evolves into more as vivacious, spirited Kira challenges detached, arrogant Grayson to want more from life. To want more for himself. But as their wills clash and fiery passion ignites, they'll realize that sometimes the past creates walls too difficult to climb, and that lies and deception rarely precede a happily every after.
As Kira and Grayson race toward their destiny, they will discover that some vows are meant to be broken, and others are worth risking everything for . . . even your very own heart.

Mia Sheridan is a New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestselling author. Her passion is weaving true love stories about people destined to be together. Mia lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with her husband. They have four children here on earth and one in heaven.
Mia Sheridan is a master of writing tortured characters like puppies being trampled by big dogs, but then those puppies grow up inevitably changing the dynamics.
Grayson and Kira both came from wealthy prominent families. Unfortunately, this just gave their abusers (aka parents) more power and money with which to mistreat them. One was constantly reminded how much they were never wanted, and the other was just another possession to be used for the owner's benefit.
Grayson has put up a barrier between himself and most of the world, sealing his pain inside. He's gorgeous on a physical level which is as far as anyone is allowed to go. "Abs and Hidden Torment: A Man's Guide to Bagging Babes" would be his title if he were a book.
Kira is wild and outgoing. No one knows what she's going to do next. Her plots have been lovingly dubbed Very Bad Ideas . Despite everything, she is super giving to humanity.
The two of them get together with a plan to their mutual advantage, but of course lines get crossed. When feelings get involved, things irrevocably change. The reader comes to know them as The Dragon and The Witch.
"Forget the prince and princess. I always imagined the real story was between the witch and the dragon."
This story has themes of forgiveness, charity, kindness, self-discovery, acceptance, strength, friendship and familial and romantic love. I enjoyed it of course.
Also, I always have to show love to an HP reference.
"Like the wizard, sir, only I don't got a scar on my forehead."
