When an old friend asks ex-Navy SEAL Derek Forrester for a favor, there’s no way he can say no. He has to spend a week working security at a local science fiction convention. The catch? He has to blend into the crowd, and that means he’s wearing costumes. Great.
The only good thing about this week is that he keeps running in to his next door neighbor, who’s at the event selling her handmade jewelry. Katie Jones is the type who screams good girl, which means she’s not Derek’s type at all. That doesn’t mean he hasn’t fantasized about getting his hands on her. And the fantasy just gets harder to resist when she shows up in racy costumes.
Katie is used to men ignoring her, and the gorgeous SEAL next door is no exception. She gets it though—she’s shy, geeky, plump and, well, average. The only time she comes out of her shell is when she’s cosplaying at conventions. She can become a different woman for just a little while, a sexy and confident woman. A woman with the confidence to get her flirt on with Derek Forrester.
When her ex-fiancé starts hanging around her booth, demanding she give him a second chance, she’s getting attention from the one guy she wishes would ignore her. But Derek seems more than willing to help her convince her ex that she’s burning up the sheets with someone new.
Now that’s the kind of male attention the girl next door could get used to.Read an Excerpt...
