She’s a nature-loving idealist who won’t give up hope
Gifted an ugly scrap of land by a mysterious donor, Iris thinks she’s lucked out with her new life in the sleepy village of Wildbrook. Until she meets her neighbor. He’s obnoxious, gorgeous, unavoidable, and worse still, he’s carelessly endangering wildlife. But when she confronts him, he offers her a job… with a catch.
He’s a cynical billionaire with too many secrets
Ben is hiding half his life from his friends, and half from the woman he’s loved for years. Iris loathes him, or at least who she thinks he is, so when she storms into his house, furious about badgers (of all things), he grabs his opportunity. If within two months she can convince him to care about local conservation, he’ll forever pay her an exorbitant salary and leave her to run the estate as she wants. If she can’t, she’ll spend one night in his bed, and do anything he desires… willingly.
Iris is determined to win their bet, even if it means seducing a man she despises. It’s just two months, and his gaze does make her want things she ought not to. Then a social media leak threatens to reveal Ben’s secrets and destroy everything he’s built, including Iris’ burgeoning trust…
