His Five Night Stand

Book 1 of Counting on Love

Five scorching nights, two fragile hearts, one broken rule...Five nights with a gorgeous man will make her forget her ex forever. At least that's what Callie's neighbor promised when Callie moves into a new apartment building. Devastated by her boyfriend's confession that he's in love with another woman, Callie can't imagine anything could heal her broken heart.

Loss has brought Theo to his knees before, so he knows just how to repair Callie's shattered confidence. After five nights in his arms, she'll leave her heartache behind, give voice to her deepest desires and be ready to forge a real, lasting love with someone new...it just won't be him.

Theo can give Callie back her voice and teach her to ask for what she wants from her lover, but what if she asks for more than he can give? Will he break his only rule - no falling in love - for her?

Bonus novella included in His Five Night Stand!

Before Theo met Callie, his heart belonged to someone else. Theo's world caught fire the day he met Grace. He should have known that love from a woman like her was destined to leave them both scorched and burned. The light in her eyes...The heat of her body...Theo was lost to her the moment they kissed.

“It’s this one,” Billie said, sorting through h er keys. “304.” As she fiddled with the keys someone opened the unit next door.

A tall guy wearing a black t-shirt and jeans stepped outside and turned to lock the door. He smiled as he glanced at Billie and me. I swallowed, my mouth immediately dry. This guy was jaw-droppingly gorgeous. He had wavy dark brown hair almost black, a strong jaw, and these amazing pale blue eyes that jumped out against his olive skin tone. He had broad shoulders, and strong biceps. When he turned away, I couldn’t help but notice that his backside was just as gorgeous. I had to remind myself not to stare again.

“Oh, that’s Theo,” Billie said to me softly. “Hey Theo!” she called a little louder. “New tenant, Callie. You should say hello. You two might be neighbors.” Her voice was a little sing-song as she fiddled with her keys.

“Oh, I don’t want to interrupt him,” I said, wishing I had bothered to brush my hair that morning. I didn’t even have on mascara since I’d cried it all off the night before.

Theo strode toward us smiling. His pale blue eyes were even more magnetic close up.

He held out his hand. “Pleased to meet you, Callie, or shall I say neighbor,” he gave my hand a firm squeeze. His voice had a lilt to it, British I assumed, though I’d never been really good with accents outside of knowing they made me melt.

His hands were large, strong and warm. I immediately liked the feeling of his skin against mine.

“Maybe neighbor,” I said, laughing as my cheeks burned. “I need to apply and see the place, but it seems nice. Like everyone I’ve met seems wonderful and so welcoming . . .”

His hair was slightly long so it hung in waves not quite hitting his shoulder or falling into his eyes. I had to fight the urge to reach out and brush the curls off his forehead. “Oh, you’ll like it here,” Theo said. “Billie runs a tight ship. Nothing but the most beautiful apartments this side of the University. Right Billie?”

“Got it!” Billie said holding up a key. I doubted she’d been listening to us at all. She’d fiddled with a series of keys before hitting pay dirt. “Almost thought I’d have to leave you here with Theo and who knows where that would lead.”

“Who knows?” he said, grinning at me.

“Right,” I said, smiling back thinking that being alone with Theo was not a horrible thought, not a horrible thought at all.

Billie opened the door and gestured for me to follow.

“I’ll leave you two to your tour then,” Theo said, nodding. “Later neighbor.” He turned and glanced back once with a smile before he walked down the hall.

“Bye,” I said, almost under my breath.
