She needs his help, but he has a price...
Having missed out on the "drop-dead-gorgeous" gene in her family, Ann Snyder decides to kick a little butt in the business world instead.

Now Ann's in huge trouble...and the only person who can help her is the adorkable guy who completely humiliated her in high school. Lawyer Eric Maxwell has been in love with Ann as long as he can remember. He figured he never stood a chance-don't the beautiful girls always prefer the bad boys to the nerds? So he makes Ann a deal. He'll provide her with free legal services...if she'll move in and help transform him from nerd-without-a-clue to bona fide bad boy. And once the transition is complete, all he has to do is prove that he's the only bachelor for her...

It's funny how a piece of paper can change your life-a diploma, a ticket . . . a plain, white envelope.
For as long as I could remember, I was the girl with the plan. Good college, good medical school, good career. I would save lives instead of standing by helplessly, watching while they slipped away. 
That was before my father called for the first time in fifteen years to tell me about the terminal illness stealing his life-an illness that might be stealing mine, too. It was before he gave me the name of a doctor and a plane ticket to Italy. Before I flew across an ocean. Before I realized how brilliantly bright life could be. Before I met Lucas. 
He's everything I've always wanted, and the timing couldn't be worse. I can't do this to him-he deserves so much better. My head tells me I can't afford to fall in love with Lucas, but my heart won't listen. Lucas is fearless about the future, while I'm not even sure I have one. There's only one way to know what's ahead and it's waiting for me at home inside a plain, white envelope.
All I have to do, is open it . . .

Fall in love with Cole Braden in the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor. 
Hot, sexy, & wickedly naughty second cousins to the Weston, Colorado Bradens we know and love. 
Annalise “Leesa” Avalon never realized that one sentence could change her life until one of her students revealed his crush—and within twenty-four hours she finds herself under fire. After a grueling investigation that turns her life upside down, she steals away to Peaceful Harbor, Maryland, with a new identity to try to pull herself back together and figure out her next step.
From the outside, Cole Braden lives a charmed life. He’s a top orthopedic surgeon with a thriving practice, strong family ties, and friends he adores. But there’s a lonely spot inside Cole that no one can see. He has an enormous heart—and a painful past—but the desire to love and be loved is too strong to ignore.
A chance encounter brings Leesa and Cole together, and the attraction is immediate and intense. But a relationship is the last thing Leesa needs—and the only thing Cole wants. Long talks, heated moments, and deep connections are hard to resist, but the harder Cole tries, the more Leesa pulls away.

For years, Grayson had watched Scarlett grow up.
 At first, there had just been a connection, something that drew the two of them together. But as the small girl grew into a beautiful woman, he knew that over the years, he’d fallen in love with her.
And then she’d asked him to teach her how to attract a man! If any of his competitors knew what a soft spot he had for this woman, he’d have to destroy them. But there it was. He could crush his competition without breaking a sweat, but he couldn’t deny Scarlett when she asked him for help.
Scarlett had loved Grayson since she was a young teenager, and the feeling had only grown stronger as the years had passed. But every time she’d decided that she was going to tell him about her feelings, the man had yet another paramour on his arm. She hated him and loved him…and had no idea how to break out of this painful cycle. How could she convince him that she could love him better than all of those silly women? Or failing that, how could she move on with her life?
