Alyssa J. Montgomery

To ensure his grandmother agrees to the surgery she needs, billionaire Connor Stewart allows her to blackmail him into dating his employee, Mia Simms. After all, it’s not like he’ll fall in love after only five dates… right?



‘I’m insisting you date her. Five dates together, then I’ll have this surgery.’

Billionaire CEO Connor Stewart is being blackmailed. By his own grandmother, no less, who is refusing to have life-saving surgery unless Connor dates Mia Simms, his dull and dowdy marketing employee.

For Violet’s sake, Connor agrees to the crazy scheme. There’s no risk of breaking his ‘short-term only’ rule with Mia Simms; she’s not the kind of woman Connor is interested in ... and he’s sure she’s hiding something. He just doesn’t expect it to be delicious curves and a firecracker personality.

Mia Simms is hiding something, and it’s much more dangerous than her looks. All she wants to do is live life in the safety of the shadows and avoid discovery. But perhaps a short-term fling is exactly what she needs to remind her to live.

But what if Violet is right to push them together? Can Mia trust Connor enough to let him see the real person behind the facade she’s built? Or is Violet’s little scheme about to put both their lives in danger?

A Paranormal Women's Fiction with a bit of class, and a lot of sass, for anyone who feels like age is just a number!

Newly indoctrinated witch, Defiance Dayne, discovers there’s more to life after forty than she'd ever imagined possible. Especially if one is a charmling, one of only three in the world, with enough magics to make her a target for every power-hungry warlock out there. When one of them sends a hunter to town, she knows it’s time to take her talents seriously before the hunter takes her life.

She decides she has three things to do before she can die. Find out who killed her beloved grandmother, teach her BFF the finer points of spellcasting before she blows up the world, and figure out how serious her relationship with the Adonis living in her basement really is. If it’s heading in the direction she’s hoping for, she can die happy. Though, admittedly, she’d rather not. Die. Happy or otherwise.

None of that will matter, however, if she can’t figure out how to foil the supernatural assassin who’s been sent for her. Until then, it’s business—and hopefully romance—as usual. Now if she can only figure out how to tame a lacuna wolf.



Beguiled is another wonderful story in the Betwixt and Between series!  Jones delivers her signature laughs and right out, "Didn't see that coming!" throughout the story.  The sexy, Roane is back and better than ever. Defiance finally comes to grips with her magic and works out her relationship issues with the tasty shifter. Beguiled has just the right amount of mystery and steaminess. I am thrilled that Annette will have her own story in the next book.
