Sterling CODE NAME: STERLING
What are you looking for?
To be treated like a princess? Or a queen?
They call me Sterling because I make women feel like royalty. I give ladies a taste of the good life.
But all that has to be put on hold when I go visit family for the holidays. My dad would pitch a fit if he knew what I did for a living. Especially considering what I gave up.
One thing I didn’t expect: to meet the girl from down the street, all grown up. She’s a knock-out with a wild streak a mile wide. I can’t get enough.
The only problem is, she doesn’t know what I do. And if she finds out? She might torch my house knowing I deceived her.
I have to find a way to keep her in my life.
* * *
I’m stuck living with my parents for the holidays, all because I dumped my boyfriend, which also happened to be my boss.
Well…my ex-boss, now. And my ex-house-mate.
I need to get a new job, but no one is hiring until after the new year. I’m trapped in this boring town with a bunch of fuddy-duddy rich people and my crazy great-aunt, Bessie.
It’s a complete shock when I run into Noah from down the street, Mr. Popular Hot Guy from high school. He’s as gorgeous as he always was, and logic says, every bit the playboy.
So why can’t I stay away from him? Why can’t I learn from the rumors of the past and keep him at a distance?
I don’t know, but the more I know about him, the more I’m hooked. And the more I get the feeling he has haunts from his past that he’s not telling me.
