My Lover, My Murderer
Publication date: February 10th 2018
Genres: Adult, Romance
It was Valentine’s Day when I found out I was pregnant.
When I came home to share the good news, I also found out what my fiancé really did for a living.
In the worst possible way.
And then he asked me to help him clean the bloodstains out of the carpet.
He said it was fine. He would just have it replaced with hardwood floors.
But I really liked that carpet.
Like our relationship, the carpet was ruined forever.
I knew I had a terrible choice to make.
I knew I had to get away.
When I met her she was a fallen princess.
I did everything to help her get back on her feet. I paid her tuition, I bought her a house.
I held her when she cried. I listened. I got her the car she wanted. I bought her Louboutins when she graduated– anything to make her happy. Anything to put a smile on her beautiful face.
She never asked how. She never questioned it.
Okay, so I wasn’t exactly honest when I said I worked in life insurance. I mean, I do help people collect life insurance policies. The technicalities aren’t important.
And she had the audacity to look at me like that! Like I was the lowest scum on earth. Like I was a scrub from that damned TLC song.
I may be a hitman, but I am not a scrub.
Doesn’t she understand? Everything I’ve done, I did it for her. And our baby.
And if she thinks she’s getting away from me that easily, she has another thing coming.

Annabella Mason of the St Louis Masons just got engaged to the perfect guy—the perfect guy to keep her father’s business going, that is. Running away until she can convince herself to marry Mr. Uptight, she ends up at a dive bar in Nowhere, New Mexico, chatting up a handsome stranger and calling for shots of tequila.
But then she wakes up with more than a hangover and something strangely like a wedding ring on her finger.
Ian Jackson has no interest in playing the marriage game again. After his first wife ran off with the town butcher—the town butcher!—he lost all faith in true love and other maniacal myths. So when he suddenly wakes up married to a gorgeous stranger, he knows exactly what to do: call his judge friend and get the thing annulled. Only, His Honor is more than amused by the circumstances, and requires that the two live together for 30 days before he’ll annul the marriage.
But Ian’s not falling for the plan or his sexy new wife who seems determined to make herself fit right into his life, one burned breakfast at a time.
