Nikki St. James wants to get married more than anything. But what’s she to do when her fiancé spends his days sucking up to her rich father instead of helping with the simple task of, oh, setting a date? Why, fake a fling with the best man, of course!
Nikki is the first to admit that ambushing Alex Hart and whisking him off to secluded Lake Eden is a tad desperate. But maybe pretending she’s hot for the handsome history professor will kickstart the attention of her future groom. Besides, a sojourn at a lake cabin is exactly what uptight Alex needs. Not that Nikki cares what he needs or how sexy he is…
Alex is not onboard with Nikki’s plan. Sure, he’d love a break from his quest to achieve tenure at warp speed but getting kidnapped by a crazy blonde hardly tops his to-do list. If what he’s heard is true and Nikki is perfectly happy with her “open” engagement to his former college roommate, why bother getting married?
Quickly, Alex realizes Nikki isn’t a wild party girl. She’s cute, sweet—and faithful. Against his common sense, he’s falling for her. Should he spill the beans about her rat fiancé? Or will he ruin his own chance for a happy ending?

About the Author
Cindy Procter-King fooled her parents into thinking she could read at the age of four (thank you, Dr. Seuss), and she's been into tomfoolery ever since. A self-professed introvert—not that anyone believes her—Cindy quickly learned that making people laugh helped her overcome her natural shyness, and by twelve she'd earned a reputation for creativity and mischief. Unfortunately, she also managed to get her entire grade seven class kicked out of school for an afternoon.
Thankfully, she's calmed down some.
Cindy credits Laura Ingalls Wilder, Red Skelton, and Carol Burnett for inspiring her love of books and comedy. Cindy took to writing in childhood, penning numerous short stories and poems throughout her teens and twenties before turning her hand to novels. Armed with a B.A. in English Lit, she's worked in public relations, recruitment advertising, and did a stint at a minimum security prison (as an office assistant-honest!) before giving it all up to have babies, write romance novels, and take up a second career as a golf widow.
Cindy's mission in life is to see her surname spelled properly—with only one O. So take heed. That's P-r-o-c-t-E-r. She lives in beautiful British Columbia with her husband and two sons, a toothless Siamese cat, and Allie McBeagle.
