(The second book in the Harrison Duet series)
A novel by

When freelance advertising artist Kelli Ann Harrison agrees to oversee the final phase of construction on her brother's glamorous Lake Tahoe house, she intends to make a holiday out of it: lend her brother a helping hand and at the same time enjoy the area's winter sports.

An unexpected encounter at a holiday mixer, however, leads to a job offer that throws Kelli's plans into disarray. Grant Pembroke, founder of Pembroke Advertising, is in town to bid for the lucrative Cassera's Casino account. Impressed by Kelli's artistic vision, Grant makes her a proposition that's too exciting to refuse: team up with him to forge an ad campaign for the bid.

Kelli is determined to keep things professional, but that won't be easy, considering the high-voltage charge that sizzles between them from the start. With his creative ingenuity and broad-shouldered, dark-haired good looks, Grant makes it very difficult for Kelli to concentrate on her work - especially when it becomes clear that his feelings for her go far beyond the workplace.

They make a wonderful team. But Grant is as headstrong as he is talented, and at times the two of them clash. Can business and pleasure mix? If Kelli and Grant play their cards right, can a whirlwind love affair last forever?


The Missing Manuscript of Jane Austen

"A novel within a novel honoring what we love most about Austen: her engaging stories, her rapier wit, and her swoon-worthy romance. James's pitch perfect, brilliantly crafted prose will have you enchanted and in awe of her mastery until the very last page. 5 out of 5 Regency Stars!" - Austenprose


"You will love this beautiful and mysterious story, full of love and longing, but with a passion that sizzles through the pages. The characters are bold and imaginative, and our hero Michael is everything a woman looks for in a man, but just a bit more." - The Romance Reviews

Dracula, My Love

"Syrie James weaves a tale of quite a different Dracula: a mouth-wateringly handsome, powerful, cultured, and passionate one. And... I...Loved...It! This is a gripping story, infused with passion, excitement and emotional turmoil. It sheds a whole new light on Count Dracula. In true uber-vampire style, he completely outdoes Edward Cullen and Buffy's Angel in the sexy tortured soul stakes. This vampire can bite my neck any time!"" - American Book Center

The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte

"For fans of biographical tales and romance, Syrie's story of Charlotte offers it all: longing and yearning, struggle and success, the searing pain of immeasurable loss, and the happiness of a love that came unbidden and unsought. I did not want this story to end." - Jane Austen's World

The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen

"This fascinating novel will make readers swear there was such a man as Mr. Ashford and that there is such a memoir... Tantalizing, tender, and true to the Austen mythos... highly recommended."
- Library Journal, starred review
