Phillips and Lauren Hawkeye have a surprise for you today - and that surprise is
NEVER SAY LOVE! You can get your hands on sexy playboy Nathan Archer
About NEVER SAY LOVE
Bound by a vow with his friends, hotel tycoon Nathan Archer refuses to settle down
and tie the knot. His only commitment is to bachelorhood. Granted, that contract
was made when he was 15 years old … and in a treehouse. Still, a promise is a
promise. And Nate takes his promises seriously.
But when cute little Eleanor Marshall walks back into his life, this blast from the past
is no longer the timid little girl he used to know. When Ellie decides to soothe her
bruised ego with one night of hot sex, Nate decides he’s the only man for the job.
He’s wanted Ellie forever and it’s only one night.
But Nate is never going to settle down.
Never say never …
Get a sneak peek of NEVER SAY LOVE:
She removed her dress from its protective plastic, and laid it out on the bedspread.
Bending at the waist, Ellie opened the back zipper of her dress. Strapless, it had a
boned corset-like bodice that splayed into a sensual flare of lace and chiffon ending
at her knees. Studying it, Ellie felt a tremor run through her at the thought of feeling
so ... exposed. Squaring her shoulders, she prepared herself mentally to don the sexy
garment. After all, the nearly sheer dress would help her on her mission. One night
of steamy, no holds barred sex.
“Frigid this, Miles,” she said, reaching out a hand for the dress.
A sound at the door had her whirling around, clutching the dress to her scantily clad
body. Before she had more than a second to gather her thoughts, the door swung
open and she let out a startled shriek.
One that was cut off as a male intruder entered the room, a garment bag slung over
At a glance, she pegged him as tall, dark-haired, and gorgeous.
He froze in his tracks when he spotted her. “What the hell?” His voice was rough, like
the burn of whiskey, and tickled at her memory.
Though it had been years, she placed him immediately. Speak of the devil.
Last time she’d seen him, he’d had shaggy hair and a bad boy vibe that made the
high school girls drop their panties with one look. At least, that’s what the rumors
and the girls had claimed. And though he still had the bad boy look to him, now he
dressed in a black business suit that fit his mouth-watering body like it had been
tailor-made for him, which, from what she knew about his large empire, it probably
Standing in the doorway, as if her thoughts had conjured him, was Nathan Archer,
her childhood crush. A tattooed badass who’d made something of himself with a
lucrative chain of trendy boutique hotels. The sexy-as-sin playboy, known for his
revolving door of women, stood in her room, exuding sex appeal and looking as
perplexed as she felt at the moment.
Okay, maybe not quite as perplexed, because he definitely looked her up and down,
taking note of the fact that she was almost naked.
What was he doing here?
She opened her mouth to ask him exactly that—but he beat her to it.
“Ellie Marshall? What are you doing here?” Those storm gray eyes swept over her
again, and since the dress she was holding up in front of her was so skimpy, there
was still plenty of it to see.
His eyes heated as they slid over the creamy expanse of her exposed skin. Even with
her glasses off and being hopelessly near-sighted, she couldn’t miss the flush that
rose to his cheeks.
She blinked, processing the fact that Nate Archer had noticed her as a full-blooded
woman, looking like he wanted to eat her alive.
And she wanted to let him. She always had.
About Lauren Hawkeye
Lauren Hawkeye/ Lauren Jameson never imagined that she’d wind up telling
stories for a living… though when she looks back, it’s easy to see that she’s the only
one who is surprised. Always “the kid who read all the time”, Lauren made up
stories about her favorite characters once she’d finished a book… and once spent an
entire year narrating her own life internally. No, really. But where she was just plain
odd before publication, now she can at least claim to have an artistic

toddler, pit bull and idiot cat, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a
dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time Lauren can be found knitting (her husband
claims that her snobby yarn collection is exorbitant), reading anything she can get
her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her
