“Please give an elaboration of how the fake relationship of a devilish black sheep gentleman with the sexy lady overhauls into the loving relationship they acquire?”

The marriage is fake, but the passion is real.

Anthony Star-Hunter is in a bind. To claim his multimillion-dollar inheritance, the reformed playboy has on year to find a wife. Then, he must stay sober and faithful for five years. With his marriage clock ticking down, he’s running out of time and options. Anthony just can’t find the right candidate. As much as he wants the money, he also doesn’t want to saddle himself with the wrong woman. After all, if she’s going to be his only “entertainment” for five years, he can’t marry just anyone.

Under pressure, he sets his sights on an ex who tried to get him to commit five years ago. They barely dated, but he knows she’d marry him in a heartbeat, and he doesn’t have time to be picky. Lucky for him, they’re both in an upcoming wedding. All he has to do is seal the deal. So what if seeing her again leaves him cold?  

As Catie looks less and less like the perfect candidate, her stepsister Sarah Pennington—who disliked him the minute they met—looks better and better. Sparks keep flying between them. Then, a drunken night and early morning mix-up make the lawyer in charge of his inheritance think Sarah is his intended. Anthony must admit he doesn’t hate the idea.  

Sarah would never consider the ridiculous suggestion to be Anthony’s temporary wife if she didn’t need big money to keep her father out of big legal trouble. Her sacrifice will benefit the man who abandoned her mother, but she needs him out of jail and working. He owes her sick, financially strapped mom the rest of her divorce settlement. This might be the only way to make sure she gets it. 

She also can’t deny the way her heart races every time Anthony smiles at her. There are worse things than being hitched to a darkly handsome, wealthy man who can help her protect her mother. Despite her misgivings, Sarah says yes.  

Anthony and Sarah think they have nothing in common beyond their quid pro quo and an intense physical attraction. But soon enough, they discover similar childhood wounds and a common desire to spend their life with someone they can trust. From living together in his New York penthouse to their unavoidably romantic Italian honeymoon, their slow-burn, un-love affair becomes something neither expected, but it might be what they both need.  

Just as they fall for each other, Anthony’s wild past comes back to threaten their newfound love. Can he convince Sarah that his feelings are real before she walks away, breaking his heart forever?  

Discover how a fake marriage leads to real love in Morning Star, book three of the Lone Star Crossed Saga. This sexy, emotional page-turner features a reformed bad boy, a bold heroine, conniving antagonists, and a stylish, jet-set romance with heat, humor, and heart.



The marriage is fake, but the passion is real.

Famous for his last name, devilish Anthony Star-Hunter is the black sheep of the Star clan. He’s an expert at using his tall, dark, and handsome charm to get women into bed—the last remnant of his declining hard-party escapades.

But the bucks are about to stop here. His grandfather’s will demands he marry to inherit his fortune. Anthony panics. Even with his bad boy allure, how the hell is he going to find a tolerable bride, like, yesterday?

The minute Sarah Pennington spots the tattooed muscles her new stepsister’s ex hides under his Italian suits, she rolls her eyes. Anthony is not for her. And with her father maybe headed to prison for a financial fiasco, she’s had enough bad male behavior. She’s responsible. She’s hard-working. She…can’t stop having naughty dreams about the sexy “celebutant.”

At a beach-side wedding, a drunken mishap throws Sarah into Anthony’s bed, and he’s intrigued. Can he convince her to give fake marriage a chance? Can she convince herself to keep her heart out of the deal?

Their slow-burn, un-love affair isn’t what either expect, but it might be what both of them need forever.
