Jared is hired for thirty-three dollars and fifty-nine cents and it’s the first day of falling in love with Nate and his son. 

Jared is a part-time student of psychology and funds his studies by working for Bryant & Waites. Youngest son of a sprawling family back in Wisconsin, New York has proven to be a lonely place even if he does love meeting new people in his job. Playing by the rules has made him Gideon’s favorite hire, but his heart is big and too often he finds himself in the weirdest of situations. Jared is strictly professional, that is until he meets Luka sitting on the office steps with pocket money in hand and the saddest expression Jared has ever seen. He never means to take the job, but his soft heart and his connection with Luka brings him into Nate’s life, and when fake turns real, things will never be the same again.   

Being a single dad to eleven-year-old Luka is the best thing in Nate’s world, but add in running a bar with long hours, and his work-life balance is screwed. There’s certainly no time for relationships, and even though Luka worries about his dad’s love life on a daily basis, romance is the last thing on Nate’s agenda. Owning Rhea’s Bar and keeping his head above water is second only to the love for his son—the most important person in his life. His entire world consists of his son and the bar until Jared stumbles into his life. Even though Nate won’t admit it, he’s lonely and Jared is the first friend he’s made in a very long time.

Excerpt 1

“Jared,” he opened a file on his desk. “One missing advent swan, a narrowly avoided foursome, a destroyed room, and that’s in less than three months. If it wasn’t for the positive feedback and the fact that all three of those bookings gave you glowing reviews, despite the issues—”
“Am I fired? I’m sorry, I didn’t know that the swan belonged to the hotel, otherwise when the girl from the table next to me started sobbing I wouldn’t have gotten involved and opened the gate to let it out.”
“No, you’re not fired, but Jared, you have to stop trying to make everything better for everyone, and open us up to situations that cost money or reputation. So, this next booking…”
“Is my last chance?” Jared finished and remained hopeful that Gideon wasn’t going to get rid of him.
“End of May we’ve just booked a graduation event for one of our new clients, she’s a CEO and won’t take any drama, tell me I’m not going to get a report that shit has hit any  of the fans in the room you’re in.”
Jared held up a hand. “I solemnly swear.”
Gideon muttered something under his breath and then pressed the intercom. “Rowan, can you bring in the ZenTech Industries file?” There was static, and Gideon frowned at the machine as if it had personally hurt him. “Rowan?”
Just as Gideon stood to find his errant PA, Rowan’s voice came through loud and clear. “I’d love to come in babe…sir, but we have a slight issue.”
Excerpt 2

“Do you have any idea how worried I was? And Auntie Lee? What were you thinking? Lying? No lies, we don’t lie, ever.”
Luka’s bottom lip trembled. “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to.”
Nate held Luka’s face, tugged the beanie he was wearing down over his ears. His cheeks were flushed pink from the cool air and felt chilled against Nate’s warm palms. “What would I do if something happened to you? Hey?” He pulled Luka to him, appreciated the solid feel of him in his arms. “Promise me you won’t do anything like this ever again.”
There was a small hic as Luka nodded against him.
“What were you doing that was so important that you thought you had to lie about it?” He rested his hand on the top of Luka’s head, encouraging Luka to lean back.
Luka’s eyes were wet, his nose red. “It’s your birthday soon. I wanted to get you something.”
Meredith Russell is an author, cover artist and vampire slayer. Okay, she may have made that last one up, but that’s what she loves about writing—the possibilities. No matter where her stories are set—from fantastical worlds of zombies and werewolves to the ambling life of an English village—she strives to write about romance and the tales of men searching for their happy ever after. Meredith  writes the stories she loves to read—complex, emotional, a journey, and sometimes unexpected.

In 2012 Meredith had her first novels published, as well as being commissioned to do her first cover design. She now splits her time between populating fictional worlds with characters she adores, and helping other authors bring theirs to life through cover art. She has had a number of popular releases, including Dead ThingsJust Jack, and both the Sapphire Cay and Boyfriend for Hire series’ written with RJ Scott.
