Lenny Bradshaw is having a hard time.  Her father went to prison for money laundering and she’s trying to hold her family and her charity together.

Then Halsey Sherwood arrives to help.

Lenny wouldn’t put Halsey out if he was on fire. He’s getting away with the same crime that destroyed her family.  She tells him to get the hell out.

Except that a charity has misused her donation money and Halsey knows how to get it back. He brings her groceries and they agree to some fake dating.

Halsey is not very good at fake dating.  He’s shy and doesn’t know what to do with his hands.

While they’re getting Lenny’s charity money back and bringing down an evil dictator, Halsey figures out what to do with his hands.

Lenny helps.

They get really good at fake dating.

It’s very swoony.

But Lenny can’t be in love with a con artist like her father, so she sends Halsey away.

He is devastated.  He even comes to her in the rain and they get back together only to fall apart again.

But this story has an HEA so they talk it out.

And Halsey is very persuasive.

Very persuasive.

via GIPHY

 

Very, very persuasive.

via GIPHY

 

 

And Lenny is persuaded.

via GIPHY

 

 

And together they are epic.

Lenore Bradshaw’s charity is mixed up in a world-class scandal with donations gone missing. Handsome con artist Halsey Sherwood suggests they work together to get the money back. But there’s no way she can trust a proven liar and thief, right? Even if his generous and sweet nature is stealing her heart, and there may be some swooning happening.

The sassy and beautiful Lenore is the only woman in the world Halsey Sherwood can be honest with. It’s just his luck she despises his profession—conning the rich and evil and donating the proceeds to charity. To aid her cause, he steps out of his comfort zone and makes her an offer she can’t refuse. He’ll get her money back from the bad guys and help her rebuild her reputation. And if things go sideways, he’ll do whatever it takes to protect her.

 

 

 

 

 

Ainslie Paton always wanted to write stories to make people smile, but the need to eat, accumulate books, and have bedclothes to read under was ever present. She sold out, and worked as a flack, a suit, and a creative, ghosting for business leaders, rabble-rousers and politicians, and making words happen for companies, governments, causes, conditions, high-profile CEOs, low-profile celebs, and the occasional misguided royal. She still does that. She also writes for love, and so she can buy shoes, and the good cat food. More here: www.ainsliepaton.com.au and on Twitter @AinsliePaton. She also writes under the name AA Paton.
