Blurb

Nia and Conns wedding will be fairytale perfectif their siblings can get along.

Free-spirited, anti-establishment Sara has always been on the outside of her familys fairytale mold. Now shes being forced smack into the middle of it at her sister Nias wedding. Alongside the cocky and annoyingly sexy best manConns cop brother.

Curtis doesnt buy in to organized romance and fairytales. But for his brother, hell throw on a tux and fake it for a few hours. His flak vest would have been a better choice around the maid of honor. He should have brought his handcuffs too, because somebody needs to restrain the dark-haired spitfireand hes just the man for the job.

One night to indulge the spark between them, then goodbyethat was the agreement. Curtis isnt looking for a relationship and he sure doesnt want a troublemaker for a girlfriend. The last thing Sara needs in her daily life is a cop looking over her shoulder, no matter how hot he is.
But giving in to their chemistry is much more fun than giving it up


Excerpt 

Itd been a year and a half since fateor more specifically, car trouble and bad weatherhad brought Conn and Nia together. In that time, thered been several occasions where the Lawler and Chambers families had mixed. Sara hadnt attended. Not even Christmas dinner at her sisters house. Saras family didnt make excuses on her behalf, nor did they seem upset. Instead they affectionately tossed around terms such as free-spirited and nonconformist.
Well, the free-spirited nonconformist better walk through the church doors, stat.  Anybody who got in the way of his brothers happiness, especially this weekend, would be answering to Curtis. Badge and handcuffs not required for that job.
You didnt bring a date for the wedding, Conn said, interrupting Curtis internal threats toward a woman hed never met.
Nah. With the wedding all the way up here, that wouldve meant spending an entire weekend together at the various family-bonding events. An invitation like that tends to send the this is serious message.
Conn stretched his arms along the top of the church pew while nodding. Gotcha.
Yeah. Not that Curtis had anything against commitment. The right woman just hadnt come along. Because he purposely kept busy with the wrong ones.
Since youre flying solo this weekend, I need a favor.
Spending tomorrow in a monkey suit isnt favor enough? Especially after that overly friendly tailor at the tuxedo-rental place got a little too much enjoyment out of measuring my inseam?
One of Conns patented grins took over his face. Did you check the pockets yet? He mightve slipped you his number.
Whatever, man. He gave Conn a friendly shot to the ribs. How you, the totally unavailable groom-to-be, got the hot Asian chick to measure you while I got stuck with the grabby-hands guy, I have no fucking idea.
Was she hot? I didnt notice.
Oh man, he was serious.  Love had put blinders on his brother. Big time.
Ten out of ten, Curtis said, shaking his head. So, whats the favor?
Conns smile thinned. Keep an eye on Sara. Make sure she doesnt cause any trouble.
Babysitting detail.
Yeah.
Is she that bad?
I hope not, Conn said as the churchs front door slammed and all heads turned toward the entryway.
Call him fucked-up, but one look at the dark-haired beauty whod just strutted into the building, and Curtis kinda hoped Sara lived up to her troublemaker reputation.
