After growing up all over the world, Penelope noticed two things were constant: her spiral notebooks full of stories and her unabashed boy-craziness. So she put the two together and BAM, here we are. Penelope now lives in a bustling metropolis that fuels her need to write about strangers falling in love or maybe just in lust. When she’s not curled up with a book and a puppy, she enjoys watching people in coffee shops. So if you ever see a woman with a large coffee, a laptop, and a devilish look, smile because you could just end up in her next book.
An invitation for a girls’ weekend with her best friend is exactly what Gemma needs. The Ritz is opulent, seductive and anonymous—the ideal place for her to pitch her perfect manners and take a walk on the scandalous side.
One martini into NYC and David, a distractingly handsome local, appears as if sent by the vacation gods. Each passing reference to Austen and every wicked curve of his mouth tempts Gemma into luring the brawny brainiac up to her suite. She’s never been a one-night stand sort of girl, but what’s life without an exception for every rule?
Of course, Gemma never thought this particular exception would get dressed the next morning as an FBI agent who mistook her for a call girl. Trapped between an investigation implicating her best friend and her unrelenting attraction to David, Gemma is forced to work with the FBI to untangle the mess she’s landed in. If only it were so easy to untangle her heart.
