Lucas Thorn wasn't born a cheater. All it took was a single moment--say, a certain disastrous incident on the night before his wedding--and boom. Reputation destroyed forever and always. So now he owns it. He has a lady friend for every night of the week (except Sundays--God's day and all), and his rules are simple: No commitments. No exceptions.
But a certain smart-mouthed, strawberry blonde vixen is about to blow that all to hell.
Avery Black has never forgiven Lucas for cheating on her sister. And suddenly being forced to work with him is pretty much a nightmare on steroids. Of course, it does afford her the opportunity to make his life as difficult as possible. But no good revenge scheme comes without payback. Because he didn't become the Lucas Thorn without learning a few things about women.
Now Avery's lust for vengeance has turned into, well, lust. And if Lucas stops cheating, it's definitely not because he's falling in love...

Van Dykens contemporary romance will win fans and accolades with an adorable heroine, a roguish hero, and plenty of snappy banter. Avery Black, fresh out of college and living on her own, has been downsized out of her job. If shes going to keep the lights on in her modest downtown Seattle apartment, she desperately needs a regular paycheck. A paid internship may not be ideal, but the money means she wont have to move back in with her parents. It seems an easy-enough assignment until she meets her boss and finds out what a small world it is. Lucas Thorn, the v-p of marketing and research for whom shell be working, is also a cad, a cheater, and the man who left her sister at the altar, breaking the hearts of the entire Black family. Naturally, they hit it off. Told in the alternating voices of Avery and Lucas, Van Dykens diverting cat and mouse matchup is pure starry-eyed escapist fun. (Feb.)
