USA Today Bestselling author Nicole Flockton writes sexy contemporary romances that sparkle and seduce you one kiss at a time. Nicole likes nothing better than taking characters and creating unique situations where they fight to find their true love. When she’s not busy writing she’s looking after her very own hero – her wonderfully supportive husband, as well as her two fabulous kids and various fur babies. Her kindle is never far from her reach. She’s a flower crown wearing certified chocoholic, Cinderella lover, major BTS fan, sports lover and a glitter aficionado.
After almost losing her life Poppy Brown has started over and has found some peace with her past actions. Guilt, however, lingers and she holds part of herself back to protect those around her, even if it means ignoring the advances of a man she’s finding it harder and harder to resist. Firefighter and single dad, Carson ‘Slick’ Killian is doing his best to bring up his young daughter while dealing with his former in-laws who are determined to force a career change on him. When they start talking about suitable women he could date, he’s had enough. There’s only one woman he’s interested in and she keeps pushing him away, until she shows up at his house and agrees to be his fake girlfriend. Poppy can’t believe she’s agreed to Carson’s plan, but fighting the pull of her attraction toward him is impossible. Spending time with him has her believing that all the dreams she thought unattainable, could now be possible. However, a ghost from Poppy’s past doesn’t want her to have a future and will stop at nothing to get his revenge.
